Gorillaz’ ‘Song Machine’ is an ambitious project and instant classic

Gorillaz began in 1998 as a collaborative effort between Blur frontman Damon Albarn and “Tank Girl” comic artist Jamie Hewlett. The idea for the project centers around Gorillaz being a virtual band made up of cartoon characters — 2-D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs. At the time of the formation of Gorillaz, Albarn was struggling with the celebrity that came from his successful Britpop career with Blur. Gorillaz allowed

Season one of ‘Lovecraft Country’ is a mostly solid success

Content warning: Minor spoilers ahead “We have to stop letting their fear shape us.” So, “Lovecraft Country” brought its first season to a thunderous finish Sunday night. Across ten episodes, the Freeman and Baptiste families struggled against mind-bending horrors, a cult of sinister wizards and racist America for their safety.

Month of Horror: Top five ‘final girls’

One of the most influential parts of horror movies is the “final girl” trope. This trope is focused on the last female character who uses her smarts and surroundings to take down the killer or monster and ultimately lives to see another day. Here is a breakdown of my top five final girls and how they have left their mark on pop culture. Nancy Thompson from “A Nightmare on Elm

Month of Horror: The best of the bad movies that are still genre classics

Horror movies tend to be the center of attention this time of year, which means I get to talk about some of my favorites. I am sure everyone wants to hear about how great “Halloween” is or how corny the entire “Friday the 13th” franchise can be, but instead I think it is time to talk about a genre within the genre. That’s right, we are getting meta and going

‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ deserves a spot on your watchlist — and in the Oscars nominations

“This is the Academy Awards of protests, and as far as I’m concerned, it’s an honor just to be nominated.” Something tells me this line was not just an arbitrary piece of dialogue, and director Aaron Sorkin would, in fact, like the honor of being nominated for the 2021 Academy Awards.

‘Hubie Halloween’ is Adam Sandler’s beautiful promise to the world

In 2019, which seems like a lifetime ago at this point, Adam Sandler starred in the immediate classic “Uncut Gems.” Sandler came out and said if he was not nominated for an Oscar, he would purposefully create a really bad movie. “Hubie Halloween” is that movie, except this is one of the best movies I have seen this year. As I sit here and write this review, I am still

Hulu’s ‘Books of Blood’ is too anemic for its own good

“We all die. But sometimes the tales of our passing are so shocking that they must be forever carved into our collective memory. There is a place where these horrors are transcribed by the dead. And they want their stories told.” As an anthology film, “Books of Blood” chronicles three stories exploring the depths of human misery. In “Jemma,” a traumatized young woman (Britt Robertson) runs away and takes refuge

The best of horror through the decades

Horror is a genre that is often overlooked, but also has so much to give. This time of year is encouraging me to make a list of the best horror movies from each decade, going all the way back to before horror movies were considered a thing. Since we are covering ten movies, the commentary portion will be pretty short, but we are still going to talk about some of
