The Blacklist Review: “Karakurt” (Season 2, Episode 21)

7 May 2015 11:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s not too often that The Blacklist surprises, but tonight’s adventure, titled “Karakurt” after its primary antagonist, managed to do just that. Although it didn’t necessarily take a break from the now well-worn formula where Red hands out a mission, makes a few snarky comments, watches as the FBI fumbles the lead and comes in at the end to save the day, it did deliver a pretty good last minute twist. The endgame of the Cabal comes a little more into focus, but admittedly, it seems rather lame. Meanwhile, Red remains coy about Agent’s Keen background if for no other purpose then next week is the season finale, so the stakes for that have to be huge.

Okay, so maybe not that much has changed.

Karkurt, which is Russian for spider, apparently, is an old school black ops Russian assassin but with new school tactics. His target is unknown, »

Michael Ironside: Canadian Badass

29 April 2015 7:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Amongst Americans such as myself, there is a certain stereotype about our neighbors to the north. There’s a belief that Canadians are, for lack of a better word, nice. That during a visit to Canada, an American would be more likely to ride a moose around like a horse than hear the F-word. That hockey players are the only remotely dangerous people you could possibly meet in Canada, and even then, that they would only pummel you under the watchful eye of a referee whom they will later respectfully follow to the penalty box. This stereotype is perhaps best summed up by this scene in Michael Moore’s lone fiction film, Canadian Bacon, where Dan Aykroyd politely upbraids an invading group of American revolutionaries for not printing their anti-Canada graffiti in both English and French.

As stereotypes go, it’s a fairly positive one. But making stereotypes, even positive ones, »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

40. Empire Records

Directed by: Allan Moyle

Ah, the coming-of-age story. There was no sub-genre more hijacked for a quick buck in the 1990′s. In between the good ones (“Dazed and Confused,” “Boyz in the Hood”), the cheesy ones (“She’s All That,” “She Drives Me Crazy”), and the under-appreciated ones (“The Man in the Moon,” “Angus”), there were the middling ones that, if anything, boasted a cast that would go on to bigger, better things. Enter “Empire Records,” which is not only a coming-of-age story, but one that takes place at a record store, no less. Talk about the double dip. The entire film takes place over the course of one day, focusing on the employees, played by Anthony Lapaglia, Ethan Embry, Renee Zellweger, Rory Cochrane, and Liv Tyler. The independent record store is in Delaware – the hot spot of American music – and sees Joe (Lapaglia) allowing night manager Lucas »
