Review by: Carolina Jones Off top, BEATRIZ at DINNER written by Mike White and directed by Miguel Arteta has two big pluses. John Lithgow and Selma Hayeck.

Beatriz at Dinner strives to bring this contradictory mindset into … [Read more...] about Film Review: Beatriz at Dinner feat Selma Hayeck and John Lithgow
Review by: Mut 'mutdiggy' Asheru There's no contesting the fact that you're gonna get some smart, witty and amazing lyrical play when you put a Dumbfoundead album (or in this case EP) on. He's a pro at this. But how does his latest EP FOREIGNER hold up to his previous body of works? Glad you asked. Well...it's good. But I'm partial to his other stuff. FOREIGNER feels a tad … [Read more...] about CD Review: ‘Foreigner’ EP by Dumbfoundead
Non Review by: Mut "breaks over" Asheru They got me writing music reviews again y'all. At least they tryin. Why? Corbyn says my voice is still relevant. Hmm...don't know about that but I do know an artist that may still have a thing to say and say well. Bavu Blakes y'all. His SANCT EP is one that should still be in your playlist if it ain't already. This is one of those … [Read more...] about CD Review: “Sanct” by Bavu Blakes. Fine/Great says it all

Review By: Ifakoya English Opens at the Angelika Theater, March 11th There is little magic that compares with that of nostalgia, and few things as precious as memories. ONLY YESTERDAY delivered to the world in 1991 by the legendary Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle) is a charming masterpiece. Directed by Isao Takahata (The Tale of Princess Kaguya) … [Read more...] about Film Review: “Only Yesterday” – Old made new!…In English to boot!

Title: The Nephilim Brood Author: Michael K. Paraiso Book Review by: Ifakoya English I have to admit that I am on a perpetual search for readable sci-fi. Sci-fi novels are difficult to write, and sometimes even more difficult to read. If done wrong they can be possibly the most boring, least interesting things ever created in the history of humankind. Throwing away the … [Read more...] about Book Review: Sci-fi novel “The Nephilim Brood” by Michael K. Paraiso
Review by: Mut Asheru Love is real and Jin Mo-young's documentary “My Love, Don't Cross that River” proves it. The film captures the last moments of elderly couple's Jo Byeong-man and Kang Kye-yeol's last moments of their 76 year marriage. Yes, you read me right. 76 years!

Even though … [Read more...] about Documentary review: “My Love, Don’t Cross that River”… is what long-lasting love looks like
