CD Review: “Winter” by MBLAQ is their best thus far!

Review by: Mut Asheru It’s with a heavy heart that I write this review. WINTER is the 7th mini album MBLAQ a Korean male group that debuted only 5 years ago and is arguably the best musical effort they have produced to date. Having steadily progressed in skills and talents this album shows maturity in […]

CD Review: Christmas Anthony Hamilton Style…”Home for the Holidays” invokes the feel and comfort of home

Album review by: Melody Charles Pot liquor, smoked neck-bones, gravy puddled on a plate that you sop up with a biscuit: those flavors invoke the feel and comfort of home and that’s what I feel when I hear the voice of Anthony Hamilton. Seriously—-his voice is the truth.  Ever since the late 90s, the NC native’s gritty […]

Film Review: “Interstellar” a mixed bag. But still…see it.

Film review by: Gordon K. Smith In the decades since STAR WARS, ALIEN and BLADE RUNNER made science-fiction epics viable box-office commodities, the genre has largely been identified by slimy aliens, super heroes, violence and lots (and lots and lots) of things blowing up real good. What’s gotten lost too much of the time is […]

Movie Review: “Big Hero 6” – Go see this film! So charming and funny.

Film Review by: Bill Graham Charm and darkness rarely go hand in hand but “Big Hero 6″ doesn’t seem to enjoy just simply being a quality kids movie. Instead, it wants to push some boundaries where it can and take you for the ride. So often I see adults lament animated movies. It’s like they […]
