Die Wilden Kerle 5 – review

Director: Joachim Masannek Release date: 2008 Contains spoilers  This is a German film aimed towards a younger audience and concerns itself with the Wild Soccer Bunch. It is the 5th in the series of films (and, from what I can gather, there is also a sixth film but with a different cast). This is the only film in the series I’ve watched. This film takes place in what might have been a post-apocalyptic setting but apparently (according to IMDb) is in the Shadow Realm (whatever that might be). ...

Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City Review: The Reboot Wisely Trades Action For Horror, But It's Not Enough

Whatever you want to call the Paul W.S. Anderson "Resident Evil" film series, I don't think you can accurately call it a series of horror films. Sure, there are plenty of horror elements in those movies — they're about zombies, after all — but at the end of the day, Anderson, no stranger to horror having helmed the excellent "Event Horizon," was more interested in action. As a result, Anderson's films were shoot-em-ups that allowed star Milla Jovovich to flip around in slow-motion like she was a...

Let it out so it can breathe..

I can't get over how scandalous Shakira looks in her new video "She Wolf". A lot of people are saying she looks "cheap", "dirty", etc..but have we forgotten that she IS in show biz? She's a pop star, she has an excuse and besides she looks GOOD! I mean how many of us "average" looking folk can do what she did in the video..what I'd do to do that cage dance. LOVE the heels as well. Good job Shakira, love the originality of the song, the meaning behind it as well..haha.So tomorrow I'm off for a co...

Mayweather Secures 44th Victory

As the fight went on, Mayweather brilliantly modified his game plan.  While Mayweather, ...

Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City Director Would Love To Adapt Resident Evil 4

"Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City" director Johannes Roberts really knows how to get "Resident Evil" fans twisted up in a fantasy booking tizzy. An admitted personal fan of the video game franchise of the same name, Roberts has already discussed at length how the newest installment of the "Resident Evil" cinematic universe will be a faithful adaptation of the games, and now he's even talking about venturing beyond Raccoon City, and possibly into the world of Los Iluminados.In a recent inte...

Every Luc Besson Movie Ranked Worst To Best

Luc Besson is different things to different people. A director of memorable genre films ("The Professional," "The Fifth Element"). A writer of action hits with no fewer than five successful franchises to his name ("Taxi," "The Transporter," "District B13," "Taken," "Nikita"). A businessman with poor bookkeeping skills. A real prick and alleged rapist. But for now at least, he and his nearly three-decades of directorial efforts are solely the subject of this wholly necessary and incontrovertible ...

The 20 Best Assassins In Film Ranked

The hitman might be one of the most purely cinematic professions -- the silent, emotionless hired gun without any affiliation or loyalty. They've taken on an almost mythic status that feels completely at odds to the reality. Some are portrayed as sociopaths, some as slick, cool secret agent types. As it is, the numerous cinematic portrayals on film often makes them the most intriguing part of their films.There are so many depictions of assassins, hitmen, and mercenaries in cinema that it's impos...

11 Movies Like John Wick That Will Get Your Adrenaline Pumping

"John Wick" surpassed expectations and became a bona fide modern action classic. After the conclusion of "The Matrix" franchise, Keanu Reeves had been in a slump; his next set of potential blockbusters "Constantine," "The Day the Earth Stood Still," and "47 Ronin" all underperformed at the box office. But not "John Wick." Director Chad Stahelski and David Leitch revitalized Reeves as an action star; Wick's signature quip "I'm thinking I'm back" was a self-aware nod to Reeves' own resurgence.Reev...

Pearl Jam’s Ohana Festival set of new songs, deep cuts reflects the event’s unique spirit

Typically, when the biggest rock bands in the world headline a festival in support of new music, fans get a greatest hits compilation come to life with dashes of new material sprinkled in among tried-and-true favorites. But Pearl Jam isn’t a typical rock band and Ohana isn’t a typical festival. The long-running Seattle-rooted juggernaut closed out the first weekend of the three-day festival, curated by frontman Eddie Vedder, at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point on Sunday, Sept. 26.

Watch Brandi Carlile Sing A Rousing Version Of “Better Man” With Pearl Jam At Ohana Fest

This past weekend, Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Festival went down in Dana Point, California. Vedder was very busy all weekend. He’d been booked to headline two of the three nights — one solo and one with Pearl Jam. But Vedder actually headlined all three. Saturday-night headliners Kings Of Leon had to cancel their performance because of the death of their mother. Vedder filled in, playing a set of covers with an ad hoc all-star band. Vedder must’ve been exhausted by Sunday night, but he got some help. ...

Patrons on the event shuttle, which started in Aliso Viejo for the 20-minute ride to the venue, began checking their phones and texting others about the random bursts of rain hitting various parts of Southern California. “It’s only a 40 percent chance,” one concertgoer announced as we exited the shuttle and headed toward the stages located on a spr...

Porter Robinson brings ‘Nurture’ into nature at Los Angeles State Historic Park

Porter Robinson was just 22 when he released his acclaimed debut album, “Worlds,” in 2014.

Five years passed between Kings Of Leon’s previous album, “Walls,” and the band’s recently released album, “When You See Yourself.” That may seem like a long gap between albums. But in reality, Kings Of Leon had the album finished in 2019 only to see the pandemic put album release and touring on hold. But the situation wasn’t all bad. “We were so used to the, after you finish the record, you just slowly start your press and then play little shows and then it’s the world tour.
