C'mon Final Destination, Don't Make The Same Mistake as 2Fast 2Furious!

I’m wondering when Hollywood is going to realize that no one really finds it all that clever when they replace letters in film titles with numbers to signify a new installment in a franchise. More often than not, it makes sequels look obnoxious and feel even more disingenuous than they already are. It’s even worse […]

Trailer For The RZA-Directed Wu-Tang Vs. The Golden Phoenix

I had honestly forgotten about RZA’s dream to direct an old-school-style Kung-Fu movie. I kept hearing about it, and was never really quite sure how it would all turn out.

Unfortunately, the sequel seemed to go out of its way to sodomize the Pomeranian! […]

Five RJD2 Songs That Convince Me He Should Do Music For Film

If there’s one thing I’ve loved about RJD2 over the years, it’s that he rarely does the same thing twice. He could have easily stayed within the realm of hip-hop, and most fans would have been satisfied. And while many of them considered his third album, The Third Hand, a major misstep, I thought it […]
