When I found out Stereophonics was coming to Chicago, I practically sprung out of my chair and straight into a colleague of mine....who by the way was carrying three full and hot cups of hipster brand coffee.

Wynton Marsalis Orchestra at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Chicago

This concert was my first time hearing the Wynton Marsalis Lincoln Center Jazz orchestra live. The North Score Center for the performing Arts was a perfect size room for the orchestra; not too big or too small, yet intimate.

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

I have to start with saying "WOW." I saw Garth Brooks live in 1996 performing in Lansing, Michigan. He was just as good 18 years ago as he was tonight. The house was packed floor to ceiling. Not one person sitting in their seat. Almost every person knew every word to every song. Garth started ... [Read More]

Slayer

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.

Clinger (2015) Film

Clinger (2015)

I watched Clinger a few weeks ago and couldn't quite put my finger on why I didn't like the movie, despite being a sucker for a black comedy, no matter how black the subject matter. After my nightmare it clicked. Robert Klingher, (Vincent Martella) begins to obsess over his girlfriend Fern, (Jennifer LaPorte), after dating only a few short weeks and when she tries to break up with him he accidentally beheads himself...[Read More]

The Sadistic Baron Von Klaus (1962)

The Sadistic Baron Von Klaus (1962)

I think I have now lost count of how many Jess Franco films we have reviewed on this site. For those who are familiar with his films or who I hoped ventured out in searching a particular film thanks to our reviews, you will know his films can be gruesome, titillating, mundane, amateurish, hell almost any adjective can describe a Franco film. Probably one adjective that doesn’t get used much would be “stylish” and that is how I would describe one of his earliest films, the suspense/mystery The Sadistic Baron Von Klaus....[Read More]

Mosquito (1995)

Mosquito (1995)

Growing up on monster movies as a kid, I have been somewhat defensive of the genre over the years as it feels that most film makers who want to try and recreate the magic of a monster film have no idea what made them so special. While the films from the 50’s and 60’s were often silly and cheesy, the film makers took the subject matter seriously and thus, made it enjoyable for the audience....[Read More]
