Agnostic Front

Agnostic Front

Warriors Nuclear Blast You know what you’re in for so prepare for battle when putting the latest 14-track disc from NYHC stalwarts Agnostic Front in the player, as just as you’d expect, WARRIORS is jam packed with the trademark tough guy bravado that reigned over the CBGB matinee set this band was such a huge part of. Only this time, the band finds itself returning to the crossover-thrash sound of its heyday, thanks in part...

Diablo Royale

Diablo Royale

Diablo Royale Self-Released Heavy metal soaked in whiskey suits the properly-monikered NYC quintet Diablo Royale best, as their eponymous 10-track introduction to the world provides the generation-spanning hard rock histrionics over rhythmic sludgery formula that cries for stereos to be cranked to the max for total rock immersion. Wah-wah guitars over catchy yet simple rhythms highlight much of the offering, as the style laid down by this act is reminiscent of bands like Alice in...

Transformers

Transformers

I finally saw the Transformers movie. It’s amazing how they could turn a cartoon that was designed to sell toys into a movie that in the end is designed to sell more toys! I heard a now drunk and fat He-Man will be starring in a reality show with his wife She-Ra where she nags him about how she could’ve married “Greyskull” money. – Paul Cress

Rush Hour Three Karate Chops the Competition

Rush Hour Three Karate Chops the Competition

America enjoys repetition. People want the same thing everywhere you go: When you travel to even the far reaches of the earth, there’s always a McDonald’s. In 2004, people screamed for change and Bush still got re-elected. And now people flock to Rush Hour three to see the same movie they saw in 1998 and 2001. I suppose people enjoy seeing two races come together by insulting another race. Ahh France, the last bastion of...

Where are my catchphrases?

Where are my catchphrases?

There has been a disturbing trend in American movies lately. I sure some of you have been feeling it too. What happened to the stupid catchphrases? Your, “Show me the money,” or your “Life is like a box of chocolates.” What the fuck am I supposed to say to people to convey that I am a sheep that needs herding? That I have no real sense of humor? or that I am not fit for...

TV execs have lost their minds

TV execs have lost their minds

I just read that ABC has greenlit a show based on the Geico insurance cavemen guys. WTF? These are neanderthals people. They couldn’t adapt 30,000 years ago, that’s why they died out. How can they expect to make it in Hollywood? They don’t even have a language, how are they going to write the script? I bet it’s going to another god-awful reality show. I bet you won’t even pay them scale will you? There...
