REVIEW: Dragonball Evolution

Leave a comment

dragonballevolutionYikes where do I start with this one? Well first let’s get this out of the way, back in the day when Dragon Ball was coming out I, as many other people (most of which won’t admit it) was a fan. So when I heard they were making a movie, I immediately knew it was going to suck. As time drew closer for the release I heard t hat Chow Yun-Fat was going to be playing Master Roshi, instead of this giving me hope, I just felt sorry for Chow Yun-Fat. Directing this train wreck we’ve got James Wong, the man who brought us The One, Final Destination and Final Destination 3, once again, this gave me no hope for the movie despite the fact that I greatly enjoy the Final Destination series. The trailer came out and, well it looked as bad as I figured it would, but I knew the impending doom was coming and I was going to have to watch it. Then the day came, I had to watch this monstrosity of a movie, not only did it live up to my fears, it surpassed them. This movie actually pained me to watch. If I was the type of person that could just turn off movies and leave, I would have done so quickly. But I had to finish with the pain and complete watching the movie. There’s really not one redeemable thing about this movie, in fact this is definitely the second worst movie I’ve ever seen in my life. This movie was worse than Waterwold. I’d say avoid this one at all costs, in fact if you options are having your foot nailed to a board or watching this movie….well, your foot will heal.

REVIEW: The Apers: You Are Only As Strong As The Table You Dance On

Leave a comment

aperstableFeel pop punk has gotten too sugar coated and sweet? Think it’s lost its edge and raw energy? Think the Dutch can’t rock? Wish more bands like Screeching Weasel were around and less like the Ramones? Do yourself a favor and check out the new Apers album. Asian Man Records is bringing us this album with a monkey on the cover, which is always a plus. “You Are Only As Strong As The Table You Dance On” not only has a really fucking long name, but it’s got some damn good songs too. My favorite probably being “Friday Night Killed Saturday Fun”. My advice if you like the early stages of the pop punk scene is to go pick this one up.

1. Word Is Out
2. Friday Night Killed Saturday Fun
3. Please Come Back To Me (I Can’t Live Without You)
4. I Feel Like A Lame-Ass Extra In A U2 Video
5. Every Day Is A Rock N Roll Day
6. …But Then She Smiles
7. Killing Me Again
8. Winterthur
9. Always Have Paris
10. Put Down The Hamburger
11. 24 Bottles Of Fun
12. Hold On To Me
13. Whatever It Takes

REVIEW: Rebellion: The Clans Are Marching

Leave a comment

REBEL_TCAM_Digipak.inddThe most refreshing metal band in the past few years is back with a new EP. While I would like this to be a full album I’ll take four songs over none. Rebellion comes back with the up front in your face metal attack that has made them great sense they formed. While this offering from the German band isn’t a concept album like some of their previous releases it’s no less great. If you’re bored with a lot of the shit that passes now a days for metal and need something new and great seek out Rebellion, this EP is a pretty good place to start; it’s got four songs to ease you into your new obsession. And of those that are already familiar with the band, you should already own this.

1. The Clans Are Marching
2. Arise
3. Ragnarök
4. My Blood In The Snow

REVIEW: Del Tha Funkee Homosapien: Funk Man (the stimulus package)

Leave a comment

delfunkmanTimes are tough with the current state of the economy and Del knows that, that’s why this year he came through to help us out with his stimulus package. Letting his new album “Funk Man” be downloaded for free from his web site the masses were able to get their hip-hop fix without dropping a dime. I think the most surprising thing about this album wasn’t the fact that it was free, it was that it came out so quickly, between his two releases before this we had to wait eight years, but I guess you can’t rush greatness. But if you pay attention to Del this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, he’s big into technology and has been known to hook up fans looking for some much needed music. If you looked not too hard on the site where Del was offering this free album you would also find some other free Del downloads. As for the album itself, it’s got the same great flow that Del always has and fun beats to follow. Some people actually prefer this album to his last one that was out in stores. I don’t take this option, not staying this album is bad at all, and it’s close to his last album, but not quite there. Either way, head on over to Del’s place in cyberspace and get this.

1. Get it right now!
2. And they thought that was hell
3. Fit like a glove
4. Go against the grain
5. Hardcore punks can’t take it
6. I’m smellin’ myself
7. King of Fighters
8. News Alert
9. Simple Satisfaction
10. Sometimes i gotta get stupid
11. Straight from the big bad west coast
12. Land of funk
13. Young Adrenaline

REVIEW: Paint it Black: Amnesia (EP)

Leave a comment

PIBAmnesiaI’ve been a fan of Paint it Black sense they first showed up. Everything they’ve released so far is good to great, and they put on a fucking awesome live show. This is one of the reasons this EP is so disappointing. Almost every band is entitled to one bad release so I’m not too worried about the band’s future but as far as their present it’s on a big down swing. The worst thing about this five song EP is just that it’s boring. We really bring nothing new or exciting to the table. If you really need it it’s out on Bridge 9 records, but if you miss out on this one don’t be too broken up about it.

REVIEW: Iron Maiden: Flight 666

Leave a comment

flight666dvdflight666cdflight666lpThere is never a more anticipated release than one from Iron Maiden, the greatest band in the history of time. Anytime they come out with a DVD or an album it’s a first day buy. This time around we get an extra awesome package, DVD, and album thanks to the good people at Universal Music Enterprises. First off let’s hit the DVD; we get a documentary that was made about the band on tour, quite the awesome documentary that any fan of the band should enjoy. I wish I could have seen it when it hit theaters but it was not showing anywhere close. Also on the DVD features a concert of the tour, a fucking awesome bonus. With some versions of the DVD yet another extra was thrown in, a tour book, it’s something of a diary during the tour by Bruce Dickinson, pretty good read.
Over on the side of the album, which is available in CD format and also as a double LP picture disc, we’ve got basically a live album. This isn’t just a straight concert however, here we get the full tour experience, and each track is taken from a different show so chances are if you saw the band on the tour, you’re on the DVD.
The video and audio quality for everything is, as always, excellent. I don’t think there’s any need to say there’s no reason not to own this, in every form. If you don’t have this already you have two options. You can go online and order it, or you can get up from in front of the computer and go buy it, the choice is yours.

REVIEW: Rational Anthem: Rational Anthem

Leave a comment

RationalAnthemTraffic Street Records brings us the self titled CD from Sarasota’s Rational Anthem. I recently got to see the band, and doing so having no idea who they were. Impressed by their set I had to pick this up. Over all it’s a quality set of songs, there are only a couple downfalls. First thing, I really don’t care for the first song at all, I’m really not even sure why it’s just one of those songs that doesn’t sit right with you. Besides that however the other five songs are really good, here we’ve got some good punk rock with mixed elements of pop punk and even what sounds like some garage rock thrown in. This makes for a really good sound for the band, I’ll be keeping my eye out for their other releases, in the meantime if you’re looking for something new to check out with a new and familiar sound you should seek out this offering from Rational Anthem.

1. Saddle Up
2. Forecast
3. Summer
4. This Isn’t Me
5. Father, You Were Right
6. Never Let Me Down
