‘Cha Cha Real Smooth’: Cooper Raiff and Dakota Johnson break hearts with their indie coming-of age comedy

AUSTIN, Texas – Director Cooper Raiff timidly walks across Paramount Theatre’s stage with co-stars Dakota Johnson and Vanessa Burghardt and faces a crowd of 1,000 cheering South by Southwest attendees. His coming-of-age indie film, “Cha Cha Real Smooth,” has just been shown on the big screen for the first time ever and it’s clear he’s touched the audience as evident by the tears movie-goers try to brush away as the

A guide to post-punk, and other subgenres that might make you sound pretentious by accident

Do you fear being asked what kind of music you like listening to? Do you avoid the question by stating “I listen to a little bit of everything,” to avoid your own self ridicule for dominating a conversation with a ten minute tirade about a couple niche bands that broke up in 2012?  Let’s talk about post-punk, a genre of rock derived from the late U.K. punk scene, disillusioned with

‘The Northman’ cuts up an underwhelming bloodbath

Wet Leg’s self-titled debut album makes a big splash in the indie scene

Wet Leg’s self-titled debut album challenges the current norms of female-led indie rock, forgoing somber vulnerability with whimsical candor to create an original and addicting sound. Gaining international acclaim with its June 2021 debut single “Chaise Lounge,” over the next few months the band proved the catchy, innuendo-laced track was only the beginning. With each new single released, Wet Leg set the stage for an album that captures the current

‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ beautifully spirals into brain-melting perfection

Directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, also known as “The Daniels,” have graced us with their newest film “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” No words will ever do it justice, so if an opening presents itself, do everything possible to see this movie on the biggest screen possible.

Fowler’s ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’ speeds past its predecessor in a huge level up

When I walked out of “Sonic the Hedgehog” back in the distant year of 2020, I found the need to make a sequel a little unnecessary. The first film in this duology was actually one of my first reviews for this publication. In this review, I talk about how the film does not work well at all. It will be a surprise to many when I say “Sonic the Hedgehog

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ ‘Unlimited Love’ is an album divided

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Unlimited Love” provides more of the band’s iconic sound while also stretching its wings to reach new sounds to mixed results. “Unlimited Love” stands as Red Hot Chili Peppers’ 12th studio album, and the first to top the charts since their 2006 hit “Stadium Arcadium.” Also returning for the first time since the aforementioned 23-song mega-album is guitarist John Frusciante.

Weezer’s ‘SZNZ: Spring’ blossoms in a new direction

The first of Weezer’s four-part album, “SZNZ,” offers a continuation of the maturation they hinted at last year with “OK Human” while providing an enjoyable thematic experience. Despite over 15 albums released since their debut in 1994, Weezer has only spent the last two of those 28 years redefining their musical composition. Last year’s “OK Human” introduced an entirely new sound, switching out their usual four-man band for a 38-piece

Espinosa’s ‘Morbius’ proves that some vampiric tales are best left unbitten

Riding off the adrenaline of “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” we have gotten yet another “Sonyverse” film, this time coming to life in the form of “Morbius.” Saying this movie came to life in any regard may be an overstatement, but it certainly is not as bad as some are saying. The main problem with Marvel’s bloodsucker is the oversaturated comic book movie formula. We have seen movies like “Morbius” play
