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 […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
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 […]
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 […]
