Movie Review: Sucker Punch

In: Movies, Tyrell

Are you ready to get Sucker Punch‘d? I thought I was until this movie completely blew every expectation I had out of the water. Director Zach Snyder has done it again. With his gorgeous cinematography, amazing style and great story concept, I think this is my favorite movie of the year so far. Here is a quick synopsis of the story.

A young girl (Baby Doll) is locked away in a mental asylum by her wicked stepfather where she will undergo a lobotomy in 5 days time. Faced with unimaginable odds, she retreats to fantastical world in her imagination where she and four other female inmates at the asylum plot to escape the facility. The lines between reality and fantasy blur as Baby Doll and her companions battle various creatures and enemies to retrieve the 5 items they need that will allow them to break free from their captors before it’s too late.

When I first saw the trailer, I wasn’t sure how the action sequences matched with the dream world, matched with the real world would work because not much of that was revealed. Let me say that all of the transitions are absolutely seamless and really take the film to a whole other level.

Another who’s read a single one of my musical posts would know that my collection of tunes isn’t from deep research on Swedish underground websites that host rare remixes of Rihanna’s latest, rather from killer shows with producers on the beat of today’s newest and greatest uncovered bands. Admittedly, what’s “uncovered” to some may be old hat to others, but for the most part I get constantly surprised with a new great addition to my iTunes collection. Last week on one of my absolute favs- especially for new mp3s- “Skins UK” (during an Asian girl on girl internet porn viewing scene no less) introduced me to the world of Dubstep.

I’m sure all the cool kids out there know exactly what’s up with this concept, but I had to Wiki it to clue in: “A genre of electronic music descended from garage music, characterised by its dark mood, sparse, syncopated rhythms, and emphasis on bass”… basically, a lot of electronic anger and who doesn’t love that ha. Still, I’m one of those lyric boys through and through and require at least a few meaningful words strung together to put some soul into the song and the song in question today: “Love” by Borgore offers just that. A punk dub artist from Britain, Borgore has a pretty established career and a strong flock of followers and I’m a recent convert thanks to the hilarity and absurdity of his lyrics combined with some excellent dj-ing.

Today marks the second “Friday” since the world went “Black”. Haha, well that’s a little over dramatic, but what a phenomenon Rebecca Black has been, hey? Simon Cowell and Lady Gaga have even said the whole thing is brilliant.

Here’s how it went for me: At first it was like, “Oh man, the lyrics of this song are so ridiculous.” Which then turned into “That song is stuck in my head.” Which lead to, “I want to hear that song and watch that video one more time,” evolving into “I actually kinda like the song.” And when I say I like the song, I mean it’s the type of song that’s fun to sing at the bar or at a party because it’s catchy and the words are so easy and everyone knows the lyrics. And that’s exactly what’s been happening.

My friend DJ Adam Dreaddy said he played it last Friday at Oasis here in Vancouver, and the dance floor went nuts apparently. Well, the same thing happened at the frat-themed birthday party I was at. Since it’s Friday today, I decided to capture our first “Friday” with Rebecca Black on the FLIP video cam and splice it together to share with you on this special day of the week.

Britney Spears Is “Scary” On Bonus Track

In: Music, Patrick

Britney’s album is officially out in a matter of days, and with a performance in Vegas this weekend as well as in San Francisco on GMA on Sunday, the day her album comes out, the buzz has pretty much been constant since the teasers for HIAM started coming out. After the song came out came the music video teasers, then track teasers, then bonus track teasers, and now I’ve got one more for you.

A new song called “Scary” is said to be another bonus track on the Japanese version of her Deluxe Edition. The song was produced by Fraser T. Smith, who also produced and co-wrote her new track “Trouble For Me.” I give the song a thumbs up and it is definitely dancefloor-ready, I just don’t know why she wouldn’t included it on the English Deluxe Edition. Give the preview a listen below and as per usual, ignore the Bad Media Karma sound tags.

In the words of Taio Cruz & Kesha, next week the girls are going to “take a dirty picture” as they get covered from head to toe in mud and getting photographed by Jonathan Mannion. The girls pose together, wearing almost nothing. Jay Manuel is on set to try to bring out their dirty side.

But first, it looks like Tyra has some words of “wisdom” to share, as per usual. In this lesson, “Sexy Teacher” Tyra helps the girls discover their individual “fashion archetypes,” and gives them tips on how to deal with fame. Barfy McBarferson.

Anyway, I’m sure we can expect to here some “Ewwww” and “Yuck” from the girls as they get lathered in mud and cuddle together for their group shots. Check out episode 6′s preview pics after the jump.

Glee To Release A Warblers Only Album

In: Music, TV Shows, Tyrell

The boys of Dalton Academy have been delivering some of the better songs from Glee this season. Their intro track cover of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream performed so well on the charts and with audiences that it was no wonder creator Ryan Murphy kept the tracks coming.

In Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers, we are treated with a majority of our favorites from the season and a sneak peek at some of the tracks still to come for the rest of Season 2. The album doesn’t drop until April 19th but until then, I’ve got the full track list to get your mouth watering for some serious Warbler action.

Check out The Warbler album track list here.

Justin Bieber Pranks Willow Smith

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

This past Sunday in Manchester, England, Willow Smith and fans were in for a surprise when Justin Bieber played a prank on his tour mate, Willow Smith. Not only do Justin Bieber and I share the same birthday, but we apparently both love to pull pranks on people too.

Bieber got his manager Scooter Braun and swagger coach Ryan Good to get all done up in some “Whip My Hair” extensions and ambush Willow on stage. She looks confused at first, but then has fun with it and asks the audience to give it up for her “backup dancers”. Bieber then comes on stage and whips his newly cut hair a bit before running backstage.

After their set, Willow Smith and her girls debrief about the prank backstage, where Willow vows to get revenge, saying, “They got me, but it’s not over. Revenge is sweet, and it’s served on a cold dish.” Watch the kids and their shenanigans below.

If you’re a fan of Keeping Up With the Kardashians or the newest branch of the family Kourtney and Kim Take New York, then you are probably familiar with Kourtney’s boyfriend and constant pain in her ass, Scott Disick. On last Sunday’s episode, we caught a glimpse at Scott’s photo shoot for said Men’s Fitness cover.

Now as you can see, Scott isn’t the most muscular, or fit guy so why did Men’s Fitness pick Scott as their cover man? Well according to a recent interview, he used staying active as a way to transform his life. Prior to his new lease on life, Scott was seen as almost a villain in past episodes of the show when he partied too hard and put not only himself but Kourtney and their son Mason in danger. It was time for Scott to change up his lifestyle.

“Whether I was running on the beach or swimming a few laps in the pool, I started to feel better about myself. After a few months of staying healthy, it got easier to see there was a better life out there, and I didn’t want to look back on the other one.”
