First of all, there’s his instrument. It’s ostensibly a bass, but it’s got six strings, and it’s running through a couple different effects that make it sound like a guitar. Also, Thundercat (né Stephen Bruner) is playing it so fast that he makes the thing sound like a Metallica guitar solo, but instead of thrash metal, he and his band are pumping out a strange mix of extremely adept jazz, funk and R&B, all of which anchor his silky falsetto. (And on one of his recent singles, the equally silky voices of Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins. »

david j. moore chats with actor Eric Jacobus…
The world has yet to learn the name Eric Jacobus. Ladies and gentlemen, hear the name and speak it because he’s here, and he’s about to break through. Working way off the grid and completely off the radar, Jacobus, a practitioner of Hapkido, has been building himself up through impressive short films and totally independent feature films, namely with two feature films Contour (2006) and Death Grip (2012), both of which he wrote, directed, and starred in, and the outstanding short films Rope-a-Dope (2013), Rope-a-Dope 2 (2015), and this year’s martial arts comedy Blindsided (2017). He’s already appeared in the second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy (2014) as Stryker and in Segment A of The ABCs of Death 2 (2014), and he’s on a clear and calculated path of action stardom.

Classic 80s beat 'em up Double Dragon is making a comeback. Here are some new details for the belated sequel...
In the 80s, there was only one game that accurately depicted the reality of fighting in tight trousers: the arcade smash hit, Double Dragon. Starring twin martial arts experts Billy and Jimmy Lee, it was a beat 'em up that launched a thousand clones as well as ports to home systems, from the Zx Spectrum to the Game Boy.

Double Dragon's popularity also resulted in more than a few sequels and spin-offs, which continued even after its original developer, Technos, sadly breathed its last in 1996. As well as numbered sequels Double Dragon II: The Revenge and Double Dragon III: The Rosetta Stone, there was also a Super Nintendo-only semi-sequel - called Super Double Dragon, because all games »
Directed by Sam Peckinpah.
A bartender and his girlfriend go on a road trip through Mexico to collect the bounty on the head of a dead man accused of fathering the grandchild of a town authoritarian.
According to the director this was the only film he ever made that turned out the way he wanted it to with no interference from outside influences, and anybody accustomed to the works of Sam Peckinpah will immediately recognise it as one of the filmmaker’s most distinctive movies, albeit one that marked the end of his golden period before his demons really took hold and his output started to suffer.
When the daughter of powerful Mexican El Jefe (translated as ‘The Boss’) confesses that the father of her unborn child is one Alfredo Garcia, »
