REVIEW: 2 Guns

Leave a comment

two_guns_xlg2013 had a ton of comic book movies come out and 2 Guns was one of them. Director Baltasar Kormákur was the guy between this Denzel Washington/Mark Wahlberg adaptation. It’s about a DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer, after screwing with a drug cartel they’re on the run while trying to piece everything together. Honestly this movie didn’t look that great to begin with but I was hoping I’d get at least an entertaining action flick out of it, but 2 Guns even fails on that front. It was just kind of boring, basically a churned out action movie that really has nothing that stands out about it. Granted I never did read the comic so I’m not sure if that helps, hurts, or doesn’t make a difference. Either way I’m assuming this would be pretty boring, I really can’t think of a reason I’d recommend this one, just don’t waste your time.

REVIEW: Utter Failure: Eroding Forces

Leave a comment

CoverUtter Failure didn’t waste much time following up their incredible 7″ EP with their first album. The album is some great straight up punk rock. Fourteen songs that’ll make you feel like you’re fifteen again. I lived the EP so fucking much and the album is just about as good. There’s no filler on this LP it’s all songs that you won’t be skipping anytime soon. I’m on my third or fourth loop of listening to this album and they’re still as great as the first time. If you’re tired of a lot of niche punk bands hit up Utter Failure for an out and out great album.

REVIEW: A Page Of Punk: Fool’s Punk Line

Leave a comment

CoverHoly shit! Drunken Sailor Records scored a big hit with A Page Of Punk. The insanely great band from Tokyo, Japan doesn’t fuck around. Their album is forty nine songs and is still under thirty minutes! These songs are crazy, violent, happy and fast. They’re somewhere between thrash, punk, power violence and pop. They remind me a lot of another band from Japan I like a ton, Razor’s Edge! These songs blaze through in no time but still leave a lasting impression. They’re the type of band that’ll make you have a one man party and cheer you up when you’re down. If you like fast thrashy punk than A Page Of Punk’s Fool’s Punk Line is exactly what you need!

REVIEW: Filmage: The Story of Descendents/All

Leave a comment

FILMAGE_movie_coverOne of my personally most anticipated documentaries of all time, Filmage: The Story of Descendents/All. If you haven’t guessed by the title it’s the story of the bands Descendents and ALL. Deedle Lacour and Matt Riggle decided this was something that needed to be documented, and it seems everyone has agreed with them. It’s got a great cast of interviewees including Bill Stevenson, Milo Auckerman, Karl Alvarez, Stephen Egerton, Tony Lombardo, Frank Navetta, Doug Carrion, Ray Cooper, Dave Smalley, Scott Reynolds, Chad Price, David Grohl, Keith Morris, Greg Graffin, and Joey Cape just to name a few. It goes pretty in depth with everything, it covers before the bands were formed, how they were formed, the different eras and into present day. It also focuses on each member for a good amount of time. Even if you know a lot about both of these bands you’re still going to come out of this having learned much more. This is a brilliantly done documentary that covers just about everything you could want it to. This is one of the best music documentaries I’ve ever seen. If you’re a fan of the Descendents, ALL or just punk rock or music in general Filmage needs to be on your ‘to see’ list.

REVIEW: Prabu Pramayougha: WAH!

Leave a comment

CoverPrabu Pramayougha (formally of Saturday Night Karaoke) is back with another fucking great EP. Prabu has a great form of pop punk that’s equally as good as many of the best bands from the past ten years of pop punk, this one seems to have a little bit of a 90’s sound to it too though. Pretty simple songs that are catchy as fuck are going to have you listening to this a lot. There are the short songs (the first two, one of which being under thirty seconds) and the longer ones (the last two, the last one is over five minutes) and it all evens out. I hope the next release we get from Prabu Pramayougha is an album or at least a longer EP because I can’t get enough of this stuff.

1. Exp #48: How To Execute A Mushy Tune Abruptly
2. SSFLMD Numero Quatro
3. Keep On Dancing!

REVIEW: Parasites / BraceFace / Jetty Boys / Outrights 4-way split 7″

Leave a comment

CoverHere’s a 7″ record that I was pretty excited for, a four way split between the Parasites, BraceFace, Jetty Boys and Outrights. It comes by way of Eccentric Pop records and features a new song by each band! The Outrights are the only band I hadn’t heard of on here. Their song ‘Let’s Dance’ is a pretty rad rock/power pop song though there’s not a lot to the lyrics besides the song title. The Jetty Boys always with their long songs have the longest on this with ‘Stranger’ but it’s also super fucking catchy like their songs also are. I really don’t know how they do it, normally with a pop punk song over two minutes they don’t hold up too well but the Jetty Boys do it every time. Though the real gem of this record is the other side, it’s got the paring of the legendary Parasites and local (for me) pop punkers BraceFace! The Parasites song ‘Never Mean That Much To You’ is incredible, I love the new footing the band got when they released ‘Solitary’ and this song is one that would fit perfectly on there. This is by far the best song on here. Finally we’ve got BraceFace with ‘Cold Feet’ you’d think following the Parasites would be a disadvantage but BraceFace steps up to the plate with the second best song on the record. This one goes in my BraceFace top five. If you haven’t gotten into these guys yet you need to jump on that shit. Listening to them back to back with a band like the Parasites really shows you how good they are. So what’s not to like about this record? Four new and great songs by four rad bands go buy it.

1. Parasites – Never Mean That Much To You
2. BraceFace – Cold Feet
3. The Outrights – Let’s Dance
4. Jetty Boys – Stranger

REVIEW: Masks

Leave a comment

masks-trade-coverSuper hero teams are generally a thing that I’m not a fan of but Dynamite Entertainment has been knocking it out of the park the past couple years and Masks is a great representation of that. It’s an eight issue series written by Chris Roberson featuring the best Dynamite heroes. You’ve got The Shadow, the Green Hornet, Green Lama, Kato, the Spider, Miss Fury, Black Bat, Zorro and Black Terror. It’s a massive team up and I love it! It’s a pulp story of corruption, criminals against a group of masked vigilantes serving up justice. I cannot recommend this enough. This is one of the best comic series I’ve read all year. If you like pulp heroes (such as what Dynamite publishes) you’ll love Masks.
