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 […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
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 […]
Television, whether traditional over-the-air or over-the-top streaming, has been greatly affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. With the lockdown firmly in place and social distancing guidelines preventing new films and TV shows from being shot, we instead have to contend with relatively “old” content. Of course “old” doesn’t mean […]
Seven years after his solo mixtape Narcotics Anonymous and only three months after The $uicideboy$’ second studio album Stop Staring At The Shadows, we have a 20 track solo album titled A Man Rose From The Dead from $uicideboy$’ member $crim. I was looking forward to a solo […]
What Went Wrong With… Clapping, Minute Silences, & So-Called Charity Following The Coronavirus Pandemic?
After being stuck in their homes for a few weeks (oh, how difficult 🙄) much of society seems to be going stir-crazy, no longer able to think rationally and logically, at least that’s the explanation I’ve come up with. Surely this many people can’t be this moronic, it […]
With cinemas closed and movie studios pushing their releases past this summer and into next year, it’s slim pickings out there in the world of film. Without a cinema premiere this Friday, we instead have Extraction, a Netflix film starring Chris Hemsworth which is based on a comic […]
In our society, we hold reformation and redemption in higher standing than living morally and having respect for humankind. Whether it’s in film, literature, or in the news, being honourable and peaceable throughout your life isn’t interesting to most people, instead the masses yearn for tales of reformed […]
If like me you recall the book Five Children And It by E. Nesbit or its two adaptations (the ’90s TV version or the ’00s film) you may be surprised to hear that in 2012 there was a pointless literary remake, a book titled Four Children And It […]
Separating the art from the artist is a moral quandary all of us face, especially since many talented celebrities are utter twats in real life. So what do we do with Morrissey; the pro-Tommy-Robinson, anti-Islam, anti-Chinese wanker who also made some classic songs and albums with his group […]
After the recent spate of panic buying following the outbreak of COVID-19, my first reaction to seeing shoppers filling their trolleys with hand sanitizer, toilet paper, and soap was similar to everyone else but now that I’ve had time to mull it over, I’m ashamed of my initial […]
There’s nothing worse than a satire that misses the mark. The Hunt is exactly that; a confused film that takes the recognisable premise of man hunting man (from movies such as The Most Dangerous Game and The Beast Must Die) and adds some so-called political commentary into the […]
