The Goth Rock scene was well represented, but upon the... [Read More about The Cult]

Garth Brooks, Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood live at Allstate Arena

Not one person sitting in their seat. Almost every person knew every word to every song. Garth started ... [Read More]

Slayer LIVE in Chicago

"Fuck all that shit; Slayer was fucking awesome!"

What can be said about tonight that hasn't already been written? Metal isn't dead, the crowd was fantastic, and the band simply rocks. Slayer has been out there since the 80s, and unlike another all too obvious heavy metal band out there, the years and success haven't corrupted the energy or quality of Slayer's performance.

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

From the opening action sequence, the tone is set that this is going to be a much darker superhero movie than we've come to know. After showing us a glimpse of the Winter Soldier in 1991, we jump to present day and the current lineup of Avengers start revealing themselves as we are taken on a roller coaster ride as action and the fast paced camera work has the audience included in the fight. At times this can be a welcomed experience but if you are watching the 3D version,...[Read More]
