‘Tyrel’ Review: A Character Study, Racial Satire and Horror Movie All in One

‘Tyrel’ Review: A Character Study, Racial Satire and Horror Movie All in One
Sebastián Silva’s scathing, scorched-earth take on bro culture, code-switching and how best buddies double as bitter underminers kicks off with a mistake. Two guys are pushing their car down an upstate New York road, shooting the shit. One of them is waiting for his friends to come along and get them, since they’re all converging on a pal’s house in the Catskills for a long guys’ weekend. The other is essentially along for the ride, as his apartment back in Manhattan is filled with his girlfriend’s family.

Official Trailer for Sebastián Silva's 'Tyrel' Film Starring Jason Mitchell

"Never trust the white man." Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for an indie drama titled Tyrel, the latest feature from Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Silva. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year, and it also played at the Seattle and Sydney Film Festivals. The film stars Jason Mitchell as a guy named Tyler, who joins one of his friends for a party at a cabin in the woods. After arriving, he discovers he's the only black guy there and things start to get nerve-wracking. Also starring Christopher Abbott, Nicolas Arze, Roddy Bottum, Michael Cera, Philip Ettinger, Caleb Landry Jones, Michael Zegen, and Ann Dowd. I saw this film at Sundance and didn't really like it. Though it seems like Get Out, it's more like the anti-Get Out. Have fun. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Sebastián Silva's Tyrel, direct from Magnolia's YouTube:

Blomkamp's Alien 5 Is Totally Dead, District 9 Sequel May Happen Instead

Blomkamp's Alien 5 Is Totally Dead, District 9 Sequel May Happen Instead
As the Faith No More and Boo-Ya Tribe song goes, 'It's just another body murdered!' As it appears that Neill Blomkamp's much talked about sequel Alien 5 is officially dead with no signs of resuscitation. And we can pretty much blame Ridley Scott's lackluster Alien: Covenant for the cancelation of this particular franchise installment.

Speaking with The Verge, director Neill Blomkamp hammered the final nail into the coffin of his once anticipated sequel. He says this.

"I think it's totally dead, yes. That would be an accurate assumption at this point. It's sad. I spent a long time working on that, and I feel like it was really pretty awesome. But politically, the way it's gone now, and the way that it all is, it's just not going to live."

The true story behind what happened may never come out. But as it were, Ridley Scott decided he

Suicide Squad Soundtrack Art and Song List Revealed

Suicide Squad Soundtrack Art and Song List Revealed
Over the past couple of days, there has been a spat of fake Suicide Squad soundtrack listings making the rounds, for whatever reason. But to counter this, Amazon has actually updated their site with pre-sale information. And they've announced the confirmed song list. The hard rocking line-up is headlined by some usual suspect, including Skrillex, Lil' Wayne, Eminem and Twenty One Pilots. We also get a look at the cover art.

When it comes to choosing his music for any given project, David Ayer has been as meticulous as Quentin Tarantino. And it was said in the past that some of the older songs included in the movie are quite important to the plot in the same way that Star-Lord's Awesome Mix Tape Vol. 1 was to Guardians of the Galaxy. Though the two records have a decidedly different flavor. This one looks to be a bit on the heavier side.

15 Weirdest Bands Of All Time

Cryptic Corporation

Rock has long been a breeding ground for weirdos. From the crazy prog concept albums of the 70s, to the aggressive post-punk groups of the 80s, to the alt-rock oddballs of the 90s, rock music has never shied away from the surreal or the strange. Perhaps its the genre’s outsider status that has allowed such unusual acts to prosper. Or maybe it just attracts nutters.

There are a few bands, however, that go that little bit further than most into the realms of the insane. They take the genre beyond “a bit bizarre” and into seriously mind-boggling territory. These are bands that simultaneously make audiences utterly confused and completely enthralled. They inspire humour, intrigue and a general response that amounts to “Wtf?!”

The 15 weirdest bands to ever grace a stage are included here. There’s the unclassifiable genre jumpers Ween, the clashing sonic fusions of Praxis and Naked City,

13 Crazy Music Myths

Wikimedia Commons

Have you heard about the the anonymous band that everyone believed was The Beatles in disguise? What about the holes in the murder case against Sid Vicious? Did Tupac really foresee his own death? Which bodily fluid is the beverage of choice for the Prince Of Darkness? Is the great Paul McCartney actually… Whisper it… The late Paul McCartney?!

Music culture is defined by its larger than life figures. Gyrating Elvis, egomaniacal Kanye, strutting Jagger, shape-shifting Madonna, androgynous Bowie… They’re all mythologised and built up to be strange, alien characters from another world that we don’t fully understand. It’s no surprise, then, that many of these idols are the focus of a wealth of crazy, creepy stories that border on the unbelievable (and are often a bit gross!).

Sceptical? Of course you are. But then, you haven’t read the compelling evidence that suggests that

Review: Refused ‘Freedom’

Refused are a hardcore punk band from Umea, Sweden that started in 1991 originally. They played for the better part of the 90s before splitting up in 1998 after releasing their magnum opus, “The Shape of Punk to Come”.Their new album certainly echoes the sound of that era. They could easily have fit on a bill alongside Fugazi and Faith No More. They mix elements of punk rock, metal, and funk and their lyrics are very anti-conformist and leftist. They recently reformed in the 2012 and did a world tour and played a series of festivals as well as headlining […]

10 Best Hard Rock And Heavy Metal Songs Of 2015 (So Far)

Felipe Dana/AP

As festival season is well underway, we are now at the halfway point of the year and it has proved a fruitful one for rock music. Despite the claims that ‘rock is dead’, the genre has been revitalized somewhat in the mainstream with bands like Royal Blood and Muse bringing their harder flavor of rock to the general public.

This has been further solidified by the recent study on Spotify that suggests that heavy metal is more popular than pop music. Though slightly misleading, it’s clear that both genres still maintain a passionate and loyal fan-base.

2015 has also saw a resurgence of older artists making a return to the center stage with bands like Slayer taking to the metal pulpit once again and the much anticipated album release by Faith No More after eighteen years out of action. It has also been a great year for

WWE Nxt Added To Aftershock Music Festival In October

WWE.com

The WWE Nxt brand continues to grow as they were announced as part of the Aftershock music festival in Sacramento, California on October 24 & 25. It’s a different kind of venue for WWE’s developmental system that is growing as an alternative WWE show.

The last time WWE Nxt was in Sacramento was during WrestleMania weekend when they drew an impressive crowd of 5,000 people for a Friday night show.

Its interesting to note that in the WWE.com release about the show, they didn’t mention current Nxt champion Kevin Owens. It’s very possible that Owens might only be on the WWE main roster by that point, so that’s why they failed to mention him even though he would be one of the biggest names if he was there.

The graphic they used features current Nxt Champion Sasha Banks, top diva Charlotte and one of the top male wrestlers Finn Balor.

10 Things We Learned From Cm Punk’s Ufc 182 Q&A

WWE.com

Cm Punk, despite having been signed just a month ago and with no fight lined up until at least the latter half of 2015, was paraded out at Ufc 182 for a Q&A session with fans in attendance in Las Vegas Friday. It was a no-holds barred sort of event with a pair of open mics and Punk speaking relatively candidly.

Despite a fairly drunken audience, pretty much everyone was on their best behavior, although some of the questions ranged from where the Cm in his stage name comes from (Faith No More’s original lead singer) to his time writing for Marvel to whether he would play rock, paper, scissors with a very drunk fan at the end of the Q&A.

All silliness aside, however, Mma fans did learn a little more about Punk’s thought process, where he sees himself going as far as his Ufc career,

Unused 'Toy Story 3' Concept Art Reveals Transformers

Unused 'Toy Story 3' Concept Art Reveals Transformers
Woody, Buzz and the rest of the Toy Story gang almost visited their birthplace of Taiwan and had an encounter with Transforming robots in Toy Story 3. This was before Pixar came abroad the project, and the story greatly changed into what we know today. But new concept art has emerged, and offers a look at what could have been.

Back in 2004, Disney and Pixar were feuding over the rights to certain Pixar created characters, with Disney forming a new company called Circle 7 Animation. The studio assigned a creative team to come up with a concept for Toy Story 3, which was starting to move forward without Pixar's involvement. Over the years, the plot to this proposed sequel has been revealed in bits and pieces. It would have revolved around the Buzz Lightyear toy malfunctioning and being recalled back to Tawain.

Reunited Faith No More picks up where they left off with new song 'Motherf**ker'

Reunited Faith No More picks up where they left off with new song 'Motherf**ker'
Since reuniting, punk-metal-rap-and-more outfit Faith No More has mostly been content to mine their back catalog for live shows. That all changes with the upcoming release of the charming ditty "Motherf**ker," their first new studio recording in 17 years. The song will recieve a physical release as a limited 7" single on Record Store Day's upcoming Black Friday, but for now it can be streamed in all its glory over at Rollingstone.com. "Motherf**ker" fits in nicely with the group's pre-millennial output, as well as Patton's diverse post-fnm career. It's a sweeping, cinematic song in which a sinister piano collides with militant snare drums, while Patton's distinctive vocals careen from spoken word raps to wounded howls to threatening whispers, repeating the phrase "get the mother**ker on the phone!" so often that you might actually remove your headphones and call the "motherf**ker" in your life. You can pre-order the track from iTunes here.

Foo Fighters team with Zac Brown to cover Black Sabbath on Letterman
For the first of five nights playing "Late Show With David Letterman," the Foo Fighters brought with them a special guest to cover a very special song. Dave Grohl and co. drafted the help of their pal Zac Brown (who appears on their upcoming album "Sonic Highways") for a faithful cover of Black Sabbath's seminal anti-war anthem "War Pigs." With the addition of roots rocker Brown, the performance features no less than four guitars, but they still can't measure up to the de-tuned menace of Sabbath axeman Tommy Iommi. The vocals are performed by both Brown and Grohl (if you can see him behind all that hair), but likewise can't replicate Ozzy Osbourne's original performance. Still, they're clearly having one hell of a fun time.  Watch it here: Fun fact: "War Pigs" has also been covered by bands like The Flaming Lips, Faith No More, Cake and Quasi.

Faith No More plan first new album in nearly twenty years
When Bay Area metal experimentalists Faith No More reunited for a world tour in 2009, many fans assumed new recordings would follow. Well, better late than never. The group -- frontman Mike Patton, drummer Mike Bordin, keyboard player Roddy Bottum, bassist Bill Gould, and guitarist Jon Hudson -- are in the midst of recording their first full-length record since 1997’s "Album of the Year," with April 2015 as the projected release date. Longtime lead guitarist Jim Martin is not taking part in the reunion. In anticipation of the album's release, Fnm will drop a limited edition 7-inch single featuring the new song “Motherf*cker” on Record Store Day’s Black Friday event on November 28). The B-side will feature a remix by J.G. Thirlwell (Foetus). The vinyl single will be limited to 5000 copies, but will then be released digitally on December 9.

Film4 FrightFest 2014 Review – Show Pieces (2014)

Show Pieces, 2014

Written and directed by Mitch Jenkins

Starring Siobhan Hewlett, Darrell D’Silva, Robert Goodman, Andrew Buckley, Ella Smith, Deak Teaser, Khandie Khisses, Alan Moore

Synopsis:

Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins bring a “trilogy of terror” featuring “Act of Faith”, “Jimmy’s End” and “His Heavy Heart”.

Comic book legend and famed adaptation hater Alan Moore teams with renowned photographer Mitch Jenkins to produce the surreal and darkly comedic “trilogy of terror”, Show Pieces. It’s a movie with such a morbid sense of humour and surreality that even The League of Gentleman might think it’s ‘a bit much’.

The three stories are all connected in some fashion, although the third part is a direct sequel to the second leaving the first part to be your “breadcrumbs of clues” as it cameos in the second story. It’s not exactly Pulp Fiction in its intricacies, but it is very subtle.
