Movie Review: 'The Lone Ranger' (2013)

The Lone Ranger trotted into theaters last week after 3 years of a highly publicized troubled production. Anticipation for the quality of the film was universally low and as one of the “lone” people hoping for things to turn out differently, the honest fact is this is currently the worst movie of the year. Choppily edited with an uneven flow, this film is a tutorial in filmmaking at its worst. As a movie it is simply dreadful and we haven’t even covered the script.

Must-See Movie Review: 'Malena' (2000)

“Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful” is an old sang commonly said in jest as to suggest that the notion is so ridiculously implausible, it is understood to be a satire on the faux-plight of the good looking. Certainly, people wouldn’t hate someone just because they are beautiful, right? It is a well regarded “fact” that because of their physical appearance they have the world at their proverbial fingertips.

Kismet Ryding - Look.See.Don't.Trip (EP Review)

Kismet Ryding is a British band based out of Grimsby and is composed of Mike Freeman, Josh Humphreys, Tom Humphreys and Jazz White. Their new EP is just as, if not more, energetically frenzied than any band on the planet which is a very good thing. They bring a rollicking energy and groove that are about to push rock music to another level. The guitar riffs are frenetic genius and the hooks sensational.

Movie Review: 'Lola Versus' (2012)

"Lola Versus" is a treasure trove of goodness,  starring indie darling and Noah Baumbach muse Greta Gerwig and rising star Joel Kinnaman. This quirky independent neo-romantic comedy follows the title character Lola (Greta Gerwig). As she tries to make sense of her fiancĂ©e’s last minute decision to pull the plug on their wedding and subsequent engagement. To assist her are her two devoted friends (Zoe Lister Jones and Hamish Linklater) and new-age parents (Diane Winger and Bill Pullman).
