Both Matty Mullins, lead for Memphis May Fire, and Ryan Key, lead for Yellowcard, […]

MOVIE REVIEW: “Addicted” is a drug store erotic novel brought to life, take that as you will.

“Addicted” is based on the best selling erotic novel by Zane, and it shows. The film oozes with unneeded sexual desire and finds every excuse possible to put us in another wholly explicit, and simultaneously un-sexy sex scene between two incredibly attractive characters for no apparent reason. The film plays out like a Lifetime movie […]

“Gracepoint” Episode four is a slow burning wick

FOX’s “Gracepoint” has me hooked.  A compelling story mixed with interesting characters in a hauntingly beautiful, yet somewhat charming locale, it’s one of the better dramas on TV currently. The first three episodes have done a lot to create a palpable atmosphere that instills quite a bit of dread and hopelessness. Episode four is decidedly […]

MOVIE REVIEW: “Annabelle” is the worst horror film of the year.

I’m forgiving with horror movies, REALLY forgivin;, it’s my biggest soft spot of any genre, and I tend to enjoy quite a bit of what I see with horror. In 2013, “The Conjuring” hit theaters and turned the horror genre upside down; it was not only terrifying in every sense, it also featured some of […]

Album Review: Bobby Bazini “Where I Belong”

Bobbi Bazini’s debut album, “Where I Belong” pegs his sound as soul-enticing. The introductory track, “Heavy Love”, leads one down the winding road that envelops the collection in a casual sense, filled with light jams and a toe-tapping chorus that keeps the head nodding. “Cherish Our Love” is a more slowed down track bringing the […]

FILM ANALYSIS: “Old Boy”

The inherent problem with any remake is that it will be held up against the original. Spike Lee’s 2013 remake of the Korean cult-classic Oldboy (2003) is no different. In both, a man is trapped in prison for many years with no explanation, then suddenly freed. While the remake is by no means a bad […]

“Gracepoint” Episode 3 makes everyone a suspect.

At this point, “Gracepoint” really has my attention; it’s not necessarily the best show on television, but it’s merits are far better than anything that should be on FOX.
