With influences ranging from At The Drive-In, Refused, Botch, These Arms Are Snakes, Young Legionnaire and many more bands who regularly soundtrack my early drive into work – clawing the sleep from my eyes and shaking the fuzz from my brain – or plague my ears as I’m out walking the dog, to say I was intrigued to hear what Radio Alcatraz were all about is a bit of an understatement. As soon as the CD arrived through my letterbox, in my CD player it went and that’s pretty much how it’s stayed. I think my neighbours can now even air-guitar the riffs.
The band hail from London and Brighton and have shared the stage with the likes of punk legends Anti-Flag, Godsized – who’ve toured with Black Label Society, and also smaller, hardcore, underground bands such as Palm Reader and Housefires. »

Ah, the twists and turns of a classic Svu storyline. You think you're getting an investigation into one crime, when another pops up seemingly out of nowhere.
"Learning Curve" was advertised as a dramatic episode for Fin and his gay son. Turns out, that plot was just the catalyst for another investigation. It wasn't necessarily a bait-and-switch (we did get some tense scenes in the hospital room), but the misdirect was somewhat unexpected.
After last week's episode veered away from the personal lives of our detectives, Fin's relationship with his kid (always a little rocky) became the focus at the show's opening.
While it was nice to see that Fin had worked through the majority of his problems with his son's sexuality, I felt like these scenes were included just to show us how tolerant he is now. Becoming an advocate for his son, he can't help but speak up »

"The Age of Innocence 3D"? That might have been the case if the 3D technology had been around when Martin Scorsese first filmed Edith Wharton's tragic love story. After shooting "Hugo" in 3D last year and earning an Oscar nomination for his efforts, Scorsese has become such a convert to the format that he said at a CinemaCon panel on Wednesday that he would have shot all of his "post-'Raging Bull" films in three dimension.
