The mid-to-late ’90s and early ’00s were chock-full of shite Pop music. With bling bling “players” ruining Hip-Hop and backward-baseball-cap-wearing “dudes” wrecking Rock, music was being steered by both sides into a ditch, a ditch that was smack-bang in the middle-of-the-road. Nu-Metal which was a combination of these […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
Unhinged is the first film released in UK cinemas now that they’re up and running after the Coronavirus lockdown. In most cinema chains across the country, instead of a couple of Friday premieres, we have numerous reissues and re-releases, so unless you have a hankering for last year’s […]
Inception is one of the most overrated films of all time, not just in the sci-fi and action genres, but all genres. After making a handful of memorable films (and a couple of classics) this is where Christopher Nolan’s filmography began to dip in quality just as the […]
Little Joe is a low-budget sci-fi drama about a laboratory-grown, genetically modified flower whose scent can lift the mood of the owner and make them feel “happy”. Named after the scientist’s son, “Little Joe” is created to be asexual but the plant has a breeding or fertilising instinct […]
Hollywood is running out of ideas. It seems that every other film made these days is a comic book or graphic novel adaptation, and with the likes of Bloodshot and The Last Days Of American Crime, movie studios are really scraping the barrel. Today we have a Netflix […]
A side-effect of the coronavirus that nobody speaks about is an obsessive compulsion to watch the news. Since televisual entertainment is getting progressively worse thanks to social distancing, the only channels producing new content on a daily and hourly basis, aside from YouTube is the news. 24-hour news […]
The Story Of Fire Saga follows fictional Icelandic singers Lars Erickssong (played by Will Ferrell) and Sigrit Ericksdottir (played by Rachel McAdams) who are unintentionally given the chance to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest. Since the real-life contest is filled with horrendous songs and odd-looking […]
After the racist murder of George Floyd and the subsequent Black Lives Matter protests, people everywhere, famous and non-famous, have been reassessing their role in society and how it may uphold bigotry. Since police brutality is an extension of institutional and historical racism, any aspect of society that […]
Priti Patel is the latest in a long line of sellout minorities in politics. Being Britain’s first female, B.A.M.E. (Black, Asian, And Minority Ethnic) Cabinet Minister could have been a noteworthy moment for our country. Unfortunately, Patel once told BBC Radio Kent not to label her “BME” as […]
With cinemas still closed, it’s up to streaming services like Netflix to fill the Friday premiere void. Unfortunately, this week it’s The Last Days Of American Crime, an almost unwatchable “crime action thriller” that’s apparently based on the graphic novel of the same name. The Last Days Of […]
When shit gets real, celebrities get fake. The protests in response to the murder of George Floyd by white Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin, have led certain entertainers to weigh-in on the situation. Had these protests occurred in the early ’90s or late ’80s, rappers would have supported and […]
6ix9ine aka Daniel Hernandez, is the epitome of an overrated and overexposed rap star. His discography is shorter than his recent jail sentence and his songs are usually doltishly-titled (“Keke”) and composed of dumbed-down couplets (“slang” and “hang”) not to mention identical rhymes (“out” with “out” and “dumb” […]
Doja Cat is yet another reason why middle-class rappers shouldn’t be promoted and popularised, but since Hip-Hop is now firmly Hip-Pop (and proud of it) here she is; famous despite lacking in vocal or lyrical talent. Along with the fact that it’s mainly the middle-classes streaming and consuming […]
