Theater Whore: When The Bough Breaks

When The Bough Breaks 2/10

If this was a comedy I would have rated this a 10/10 because I laughed my ass off so many times while watching this. When The Bough Breaks is like those 80's and early 90's films tat stopped being made because there was nothing left to say. Basic story of a crazy ass woman attacking a couple because she wants in. When I say this movie hit every note in a cheesy ass supposedly thriller I mean that hit every note and even the ones you didn't know were there. This will have spoilers and if that upsets you chances are you planned on seeing this shit show and you should be happy I'm saving you money.

My Song Of The Week: The Natural

This is a song called The Natural I started working on early this morning. I wanted to do something using an acoustic guitar with a simple hip hop drum beat and bass. I like how it came out at 100 bpm.

The Review: Imperium

Imperium 6/10

My cousin Jasmine had mentioned this movie called Imperium to me starring Daniel Radcliffe so we watched it the other day. He plays an FBI agent that goes undercover to find out about some white supremacist groups that have this poison and may be using it to start a race war. Its based on a true story so he is in almost every scene. He is just a dorky ass dude who has his boss played by Toni Collette ask him to do this and helps train him on how to be trusted and get information. It involves changing where he lives, shaving his head, and getting a big ass tattoo on his arm which I would have been like “Yeah...but no.”

Theater Whore: The Magnificent Seven

The Magnificent Seven 9/10

Some spoilers. This movie had no right to be as good as it was. I'm not saying I expected it to be bad because I am a fan of Antoine Fuqua and have seen Training Day over 50 times but damn this was a really entertaining movie. With such a large cast everyone got the right amount of time to get their personal stories across and even the ones that didn't get a super deep one were still great. This takes place in the 1870's where Bartholomew Bogue played by Peter Sarsgaard is mining and just running people out of the town of Rose Creek. He is a total dick. I mean, there is nothing good about this guy. From attacking people in a church to burning it to the ground and then shooting people dead in the street...within five minutes. This isn't some shit he did over a week long period. He wastes no time establishing himself as a terrible human being.

Theater Whore: Don't Breathe

Don't Breathe 5/10

There will be super spoilers. I finally got to see the movie Don't Breathe. I'd wanted to see it since the creepy a trailer came out but over time lost excitement when I realized what was happening. I was watching a new thriller (not horror like people keep saying). And in new thrillers I tend to hate the “victims” so much that when they are killed I don't care all that much. This stars Jane Levy as Rocky. She the girl. Dylan Minnette is Alex. He the kinda nerdy guy that may survive. And Daniel Zovatto plays Money and he has cornrows so automatically he has to die. That isn't really a spoiler its in the trailer.

Steel Punch 2: Gideon's Revenge Level 5 Music

For those that do not know I created a soundtrack for a video game that does not exist last year called Steel Punch. I have planned to design the characters for this nonexistent game but in the meantime I ended up making an entire soundtrack for the sequel titled Steel Punch 2: Gideon's Revenge. I assume that the bad guy didn’t die for real in the first not game. The first soundtrack was very much inspired by Streets Of Rage 2. Very game-like, beepy, techno, with some hip-hop tossed in and rock when I needed it.

The second is more metal and aggressive. I made each level with a feel to it to help me create the stages, the boss, and even the bonus level music. Something is wrong with me. I was listening to the soundtrack for the sequel a few days ago on the way to work and loving it but there was something about level five that bothered me. It just did not fit with the rest of the songs at all and came across as too light. So a few minutes ago I decided to change it up and make something that I liked way more. This is it. Hope you like it. 

My Song Of The Week: Checking Your Temperature

For my song of the week I decided to do another remix of a Katy Perry song. I took Hot N Cold and made Checking Your Temperature using an acapella version and beats at 132 bpm.

Stop it: Lena Dunham

When I first heard about this Lena Dunham story I told myself to wait a little bit because I knew that an apology would be coming up soon. For those that do not know who Dunham is she is a woman that I only pay attention to when her name is trending for some silly shit or when someone asks if I watched her series. This current situation involved New York Giants player Odell Beckham Jr. and a not interaction she had with him at the Met Ball. Here is what she recklessly posted.

"I was sitting next to Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards. He was like, 'That's a marshmallow. That's a child. That's a dog.' It wasn't mean - he just seemed confused. The vibe was very much like, 'Do I want to fuck it? Is it wearing a...yep, it's wearing a tuxedo. I'm going to go back to my cell phone.' It was like we were forced to be together, and he literally was scrolling Instagram rather than have to look at a woman in a bow tie. I was like, 'This should be called the Metropolitan Museum of Getting Rejected by Athletes.'"

The Review: The Fall

The Fall 9/10

I am so pissed that I am just getting around to watching this movie. A friend sent an image from it years ago and I was supposed to create something (which I finally did) and we were talking about this movie and I decided to finally watch it and I am glad I did. The Fall was came out back in 2006 (or 2008 depending on who you ask) and is one of those kind of movie that make you happy that movies exist because there is nothing else that can be like this except for a fever dream. It takes place in early 1900's Los Angeles and it starts off with no sound. You just see a horse being rescued from a river while people are shouting and then pulling someone out. A stuntman is injured named Roy Walker and he is placed by Lee Pace. He is visited by this little girl named Alexandria played by Catinca Untaru who is there to have her broken arm fixed. He begins telling her a crazy ass story the next day.

My Song Of The Week: Eater Of Men

Another week another song. I actually made this beat last year for a song titled Manchester in honor of the street I grew up on. I love Hall & Oates (click here to see a Perler bead version I made for my best friend) and will be seeing them in concert soon. So when I was looking for audio and found their song Maneater I had to use it. I altered the beats per minute from 89 to 90 and found the right spot to place it.

The Review: The Widower

The Widower 7/10

I finally finished watching the three episode series The Widower. Cam told me about it and when she told me how short it was I checked it out. I know all of you love these long series like The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad but there is no way in hell I'm jumping into a show that is that far along. I'll just watch best moment clips and be fine. The Widower is based on the true story of a killer named Malcolm Webster that was all about poisoning, stealing from, and sometimes killing women after getting into relationships with them over a thirteen year time period.
