The Cribs

c

The Cribs will always remind me of my very first SXSW.  They were the last band I saw that year, and I’ll always remember that set because one of them threw up in the middle of it and then ran away.  Anyhow, I like the 90s-inspired single they just released.  Look for their very appropriately [...]

Movie Breakdown: Dunkirk

dunkirk

Pre-Screening Stance: It’s Christopher Nolan.  If you’re not at least a little excited about Dunkirk, then you’re probably dead. Post-Screening Ramble: I figured Dunkirk was going to be pretty straight forward affair.  There are soldiers trapped on a beach, and civilian boats have been sent to retrieve them.  Oscar-worthy drama ensues!  This is partly true, as [...]

Movie Breakdown: Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets

valerian_and_the_city_of_a_thousand_planets-HD

Pre-Screening Stance: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets looks like Luc Besson trying to reproduce what he did with The Fifth Element, and that’s totally fine by me. Post-Screening Ramble: Right from the start, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets feels like The Fifth Element mixed with Guardians of the Galaxy.  [...]
