ON WAX: NICKI MINAJ ADDS TO HER ALBUM, Aminé AND STEFFLON DON DROPS

“CHANEL (GO GET IT)” This week Young Thug released a track called “Chanel (Go Get it),” enlisting the help of Lil Baby and Gunna. As far as chemistry, this track is everything you could expect from them (in the best way), and there isn’t anything done that feels overdone; even the lyrics are solid. If […]

R-I-P A-R-E-T-H-A

“Chain Of Fools,”  “Respect,”  “Think,” and “(You Make Me Feel) Like a Natural Woman.”  Those are just four songs she sang, but I could go on and on…“Freeway Of Love,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and “Who’s Zoomin’ Who?” You see what I mean. There’s a reason why she is called the “Queen of Soul” because she really was. She did it with grace, […]

‘THE MEG:’ A Few Thoughts

‘THE MEG:’ A Few Thoughts

I wanted to do a “stream of consciousness review” for this movie, but in order to do that, you must be able to walk into a movie and take it on its own terms without any baggage.  I couldn’t do that with this movie. To be fair, this movie sets out to be nothing more […]

What To Do With James Gunn…

What To Do With James Gunn…

Walt Disney summarily fired James Gunn for a number of offensive Tweets he made in 2007 and 2008. James Gunn admitted he made those Tweets, and made no move to defend or apologize for them. He simply said he was not the same person today as he was when he made those Tweets. It made no difference […]

Stephen King: The Man Behind American Cinema Comes To TV

Stephen King: The Man Behind American Cinema Comes To TV

A terrifying child-devouring clown. A mysterious hotel. Eternal gunslingers. All are characters in books that have nothing to do with each other. Their plotlines are fresh and different with twists hidden within the text’s crevices. Yet, they share a similarity. Every single monster that you were afraid of when you were a kid was born […]
