Music Review: 2017 Chicago Open Air Festival With Anthrax, Megadeth, Rob Zombie, Kiss

Chicago – Watching a heavy metal band perform during daylight can be a little like watching a horror film with the lights on. The overall performance can sometimes lose a bit of its edge and intensity.

Fortunately that was not the case when the main acts took the stage for the “Chicago Open Air” concert at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Ill. First up in that daylight, on the cool and breezy Friday afternoon of July 14th, 2017 – the first night of the three-day event – was the legendary thrash metal performers Anthrax, followed by the Megadeth, and then in the evening by Rob Zombie and the iconic rockers Kiss.

Anthrax, led by Joey Belladonna’s passion and high velocity vocals, matched the fury from the zealous crowd. The band opened with “Caught in a Mosh,” and bookended their performance with “Indians.” In between, Scott Ian’s shredding guitar, and the band’s fevered

‘Psycho Cop Returns’ Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

Stars: Robert R. Shafer, Barbara Niven, Miles Dougal, Rod Sweitzer, Nick Vallelonga, Melanie Good, Julie Strain | Written by Dan Povenmire | Directed by Adam Rifkin (as Rif Coogan)

You know, it wasn’t until the release of Detroit Rock City that I realised that a) Adam Rifkin and Rif Coogan are one in the same; and b) just how many of Rifkin’s films I considered amongst my favourites at that time: Never on Tuesday, The Dark Backward, The Chase and, of course, Psycho Cop Returns. Mainly because they were films I remember renting on video (you couldn’t escape trailers for The Dark Backward back in the VHS era) and seeing on Sky’s movie channels in the days when you could be guaranteed to find an “obscure” film screening as filler between their big-name flicks!

Psycho Cop Returns came at a period in horror movie making, which also included

‘Dog Years’ Review: 81-Year-Old Burt Reynolds Stars In a Strange and Sentimental Tribute to Himself

‘Dog Years’ Review: 81-Year-Old Burt Reynolds Stars In a Strange and Sentimental Tribute to Himself
From the moment that “Dog Years” begins, the question isn’t if Burt Reynolds is playing a thinly veiled version of himself, but rather why? The aging, hobbled, and financially insecure Hollywood icon stars as Vic Edwards, an aging, hobbled, and financially insecure Hollywood icon.

And lest there be any confusion about the central conceit of this sweet-natured but fatally half-realized meta-drama about growing old and giving up, writer-director Adam Rifkin (“Detroit Rock City”) introduces his fictional hero with footage from one of Reynolds’ vintage talk show appearances, dubbing over the real actor’s name with that of his latest character.

The message comes through loud and clear: Burt Reynolds is communing with his past and coming to grips with the images that continue to haunt him, but he’s also adding one more (or one last) character to his wrinkled body of work. Unfortunately, while either one of those

‘Catfight’ Finds Both Brutality and Humanity In Its Bloody Brawls

This Week in Home VideoPlus 20 more new releases to watch at home this week on Blu-ray/DVD.

Welcome to this week in home video! Click the title to buy a Blu-ray/DVD from Amazon and help support Fsr in the process!

Pick of the WeekCatfight

What is it? Two old college friends cross paths as adults and beat the ever-loving crap out of each other.

Why see it? Onur Tukel’s latest is also his best thanks in part to the lead performances by Sandra Oh and Anne Heche. They do a good job of manipulating our sympathies and concerns ensuring that our loyalties shift from act to act. Themes of female friendships, class distinctions, and redemption run through alongside a satirical look at modern life, and there’s a terrifically wicked streak throughout. Funny, smart, and brutal are all apt descriptors for this cynical look at our violent selves.

Don't Wet Your Seat While Watching Alvarez's Impressive Thriller: Film Review

'Don't Breathe' movie: Dylan Minnette is a burglar who discovers that blind man Stephen Lang is not quite like former blind film victims Audrey Hepburn ('Wait Until Dark') and Mia Farrow ('Blind Terror'). 'Don't Breathe' movie review: Fede Alvarez succeeds with horror thriller-love story mix Horror filmmaker Fede Alvarez avoids the fate of the sophomore curse with his second feature film, Don't Breathe, which establishes the director of the 2013 remake of the iconic Evil Dead as the real deal when it comes to genre films that keep audiences on the edge of their dampened theater seats. Co-written by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues, at only 88 minutes Don't Breathe is not only meticulously paced, but also remarkably clever in how it handles its characters and their motivations, and its audience and their expectations – titillating, but never quite letting either have exactly what they want.

Cleveland According to Movies and Television

Our perception of the Forest City having only seen it on screen.

All this week, Cleveland, Ohio, is being overrun with politicians, their supporters, and protestors of their platforms as the Republican National Convention is being held at the Quicken Loans Arena through Thursday. To help get a better sense of this “Cleve-Land,” as Howard the Duck calls it, we’re looking to entertainment, specifically movies and television, for what it can tell us about this city. If there’s anything we miss or misunderstand, blame Hollywood.

Cleveland Rocks

It’s the Rock and Roll Capital of the World, home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so it’s not surprising that, to an outsider, Cleveland primarily looks like a city where music reigns. You could make a nice concert with all the fictional bands based there, including Cherry Bomb from Howard the Duck, The Barbusters from Light of Day, the

7 Ups And 7 Downs From Last Night’s WWE Raw (Feb 22)

WWE.com

After a disappointing Fastlane Sunday night, WWE ramped up for the final six-week push to WrestleMania, dropping a couple bombshells on fans on Raw. Monday’s episode was bookended by shocking moments, but for very different reasons.

Raw opened with the Prodigal Son returning to soak in the cheers and closed with the Chosen One being booed when that clearly was not what WWE was going for. We saw Shane McMahon make his first significant appearance on WWE television in six years to confront his father and sister, instantly making him the biggest babyface on the roster, which is a problem in some ways, but awesome in others. We also saw Triple H dish out an epic beatdown of Roman Reigns that resulted in fans cheering for Hunter rather than rallying around the brutalized #1 contender. So much for the Roman Empire.

We also got two major matches confirmed,

Either I was dreaming or I went to the premiere of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Either I was dreaming or I went to the premiere of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'
"Star Wars" is back, and it's never going away again. When "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" was released, there was no way in hell I would have expected an invitation to their premiere. After all, I had spent the entire production of the film publishing spoilers, including a review of the script that was published in November of '98. I was The Mighty Moriarty, part of Ain't It Cool News, part of the new unstoppable culture of spoilers, and I knew Lucasfilm wanted nothing to do with me. I had to sneak into the first press screening of the film with someone who had an official invitation. He was stressed the entire time that I was somehow going to get spotted or identified and that he'd get tossed out with me, but nothing happened. It was a press screening, though… not the premiere. The night of the actual premiere, I

Review: '54: The Director's Cut' With Ryan Phillippe, Salma Hayek, Mike Myers, Breckin Meyer, And Neve Campbell

Nostalgia in pop culture seems to operate on a twenty-year delay These days, there are a lot of callbacks to '90s movies, TV shows, video games, and more. Conversely, the 90s were all about the '70s, and during the latter part of the decade, there was a resurgence of movies that took place in the late '70s, complete with earworm disco tunes and bell-bottoms. The king of these films is of course Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Boogie Nights." Whit Stillman’s “The Last Days of Disco” was an even-tempered approach to relationships during, well, the disco days. Spike Lee combined a gritty thriller with an ensemble drama in the 1977-set “Summer of Sam.” Adam Rifkin pitted hard rockers and disco kids against each other in the underrated “Detroit Rock City”. Among these was 1998 oddity “54," about a young and naïve stud’s fish out of water experiences as

Principal Photography on Creepy As Hell Looking Bloodhound begins; Stills Look Intense

Jason R. Miller, one of the producers behind films like Frozen (not the “Let It Go” one, but I’m sure you fright fanatics already know that), Hatchet 2, Chillerama and the director of Unidentified, has started principal photography on his second film, the creepy looking Bloodhound. The film, featuring Ed Ackerman (Frozen, 17 Again) and David Foy (Hatchet 2), Miles Dougal (Director’s Cut., Detroit Rock City), Jess Allen (Broken Glass), and Silvia Moore (Lords of Salem, Chillerama), looks (from the stills sent to us) to be quite the shocker, with a very unsettling look to it. Personally, I’m excited as hell about this one, due to the hilarious performances Ackerman and Foy gave in Hatchet 2, it’ll be fun to see both of them play off each other again, this time in a terrifyingly serious angle.

“In Bloodhound, private investigator Abel Walker (Ackerman) along with his cameraman, Jim (Foy), are

Remember When Rachel and Chandler Did a Video Guide For Microsoft Windows 95?
"Taskbacks and emails and shortcuts, oh my!" God forbid Matthew Perry and Jennifer Aniston got paid anything less than a million dollars each for this wonderfully retro Microsoft Windows 95 guide. In 1995, Friends was doing pretty well, so Bill Gates himself must've called in a personal favor to get these two to joke their away around his computer console. Nevertheless, we now have 56 minutes of how-to and sitcom-y technology jokes from the two friends, who work their way through the Microsoft offices, meeting all the kooky people who work there.  Skip to 12:00 if you want to see Aniston (pre-Seamless!) order Chinese food on Bill Gates's personal computer.  Skip to 19:15 if you want to see them look at cat photos. Turns out cats were always popular online.  Skip to 25:10 if you want to see a very young, very adorable Sam Huntington (Being Human, Detroit Rock City) play "Joystick
