Movie Review: 'Disorder' (2015)

Writer/director Alice Winocour’s hypnotic French-language thriller runs heavy on innuendo and light on details. “Disorder” is an atmospheric drama that centers on Vincent (Matthias Schoenaerts) a veteran of France’s Special Forces, who has returned home from a recent stint in Afghanistan.

After multiple tours he is paying the price both physically and emotionally. When a physical reveals that he is losing his hearing and a psychological exam leads to a PTSD diagnosis, he is grounded from going back.

Movie Review: 'The Forest' (2016)

“Game of Thrones” alum Natalie Dormer stars as an American who travels to Japan’s Suicide Forest to find her missing twin sister. What follows is a mix between human-made suspense and a supernatural thriller. As Dormer’s Sara ignores all reason to locate her sister, eventually drawing a travel journalist (Taylor Kinney) and perceptive guide (Yukiyoshi Ozawa) into her plight.

It is easy to empathize with Sara, one half of a contrasting, identical twin combo. She is the long-suffering sister of her troubled counterpart, Jess. Recently, Jess had been getting her life together, teaching English in Japan.

Why Figure Skaters Should Consider Music from 'Game of Thrones,' 'Fifty Shades of Grey' And More

A new season of figure skating is upon us and with that, a slew of new programs. If you are a fan of figure skating, be it singles, pairs or ice dance, then you know that music selection can oftentimes be the make or break difference between a good program and a great one.

Entertainment Inquiry #7: Fall Movies, 'Fifty Shades Darker', 'Narcos' And more!

Since there is only so much time in the day to read 750+word reviews, it seemed right to boil down all of the sentiments expressed on Eclectic Pop into a simple question and answer format; getting to the point in a concise and clear manner that transforms those broader analyses into a bite-size re…

#RKC Presents the Final Eclectic Selection #12: The Complete Playlist

On Friday, September 23; Eclectic Selection #12 will premiere on #RKC. As previously announced playlist #12 will also be the last Eclectic Selection. The final show will consist of a 16 song lineup. Below you will find the complete playlist (in order of airplay), the artist, the song and the social media links for you to connect with the featured artists further. I would like to thank all of the talented artists whose music comprises this playlist and all of the previous installments. As with every Eclectic Selection; it has been your music that has made the evening sing!

I would also like to thank everyone who has listened to the show throughout the past 2 years, my fellow Selectors for their support and of course, Jerome (aka Ze Boss) for the opportunity to compose 12 Eclectic Selections. It has been a blast.

Eclectic Pop News: Music Announcement

As many of you know there has been a recent change with the content on the site.
For one, there has been less of it. As my freelancing work expands, Eclectic Pop has taken a bit of a back seat, though it remains a top priority. Working through this learning curve has been an adjustment. Rest assured that through the ebbs and flows, new content will continue to be created. However, the focus of that content will soon be changing.

Effective immediately, Eclectic Pop will be taking an indefinite sabbatical from conducting music reviews. As many of you who have reached out for a review are aware I have been saying for a while now that I would only be taking submissions for the Eclectic Selection playlist on #RKC. As you may have recently read, I will no longer be doing that either.

Eclectic Pop News: The End of Eclectic Selection on #RKC

As the title of this post suggests, this is an announcement about the end of the Eclectic Selection show on #RKC.

After nearly 2 years, 11 aired playlists, 275+ songs and lots of contemplation, the time has come to announce that I will no longer be a Selector for #RKC. I would like to thank Jerome, Ze Boss of #RKC for giving me the opportunity to be one. It has been an incredible learning experience and his patience throughout its sporadic installments has been greatly appreciated. Thanks to him, so many wonderful indie artists have a platform to be heard. What #RKC does for those artists, along with giving music enthusiasts an outlet to compose a playlist, is nothing short of inspired.

Album Review | Eliza Neals, 'Breaking and Entering'

Detroit’s Eliza Neals serves up a confection of electrified blues and fizzy jazz with “Breaking and Entering”. An album that is fun (‘Sugar Daddy’), fresh (‘Southern Comfort Dreams’) and stamped with the indelible signature of Neals’ vibrant personality. Her soulful vocals breathing life into a re…

Movie Review: 'High-Rise' (2015)

There are movies you watch and wonder how and why on earth they were made, such is the story of director Ben Wheatley’s “High-Rise”. An adaptation, based on the novel of the same name by J.G. Gallard, “High-Rise” is a relentless look at the decadence and moral depravity that consumes a buffet of humanity living in a tower block during the 1970’s. The high-rise features 3 basic levels: lower, middle and upper; each floor representing the financial class of those who live there.
