Starship Troopers

 

 Well my dear friends, our time is drawing to an end. In a little over five weeks I’ll be gone forever. Well, I’ll pop back in from time-to-time, but for the most part you’ll be stuck with Wookiee and his giggly boobs from now on. But before I leave you I’ll attempt to knock out a few more articles. — Now anyone with an internet connection will have heard the news that there is a new Starship Troopers film on the way. Now before we look at the trailer we’ll have a quick look at the history of this beloved franchise. Our franchise began in 1958-1959, when American author Robert A. Heinlein (7 July, 1907 – 8 May, 1988) took […]

Ninjaspy (Band Interview)

 

 Today we speak to Joel from Ninjaspy. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? We have been playing together since 1999 when we were teenagers. We played all kinds of different styles back then, figuring out what we liked. Turns out we liked a lot of things. So we spent our creative energy on mixing genres together. We became Ninjaspy in 2006 and put out an album, Pi Nature, that brought ska, reggae and metalcore together. Since then it has been pretty much all touring in Canada and Japan with a short EP release in there, No Kata. A few years ago we whipped up a new batch of song soup and got the ball rolling to make Spüken, which we just released […]

Upright Man (Band Interview)

Today we chat to the members of Upright Man. What’s the history of Upright Man? Max: Their story began several millennia ago. The Upright Man, or Homo Erectus, was a species of human that lived during the Pleistocene Epoch from about 1.6 million years ago to 250,000 years ago. Now extinct, Homo Erectus was the first species of humans to master fire, and its remains have been found in Africa, Europe, and Asia. It is widely thought to be the direct ancestor of modern humans. Nick: It pretty much resembles the opening sequence of “History of the World Part I.” (A good film. -Ed) Aidan: We are all Upright Men, but as far as the band goes, we’ve been around for 2 […]

Westworld (Series Review)

 

 A large number of people adore cowboy films. A vast number of people love sci-fi. A goodly gang of people delight in thrillers. And a few people love all three of them combined into a single show. Welcome to the robot filled Wild West. Welcome to the madness that is Westworld. The show is based on the book of the same name written by the legendary Michael Crichton (23 October, 1942 – 4 November, 2008) and loosely based on the films ‘Westworld’ (1973) and ‘Futureworld’ (1976).  The series is set in the near future and focusses on a Wild West theme park that allows wealthy humans to interact with robotic facsimiles (Hosts), engage in adventures, become part of their own […]

GAMES!

I adore video games. Now this yeas, 2017, promises to be a year for some amazing video games. Let’s have a look at some of them. The Surge (It is out by now. This article was written a few weeks back. -Ed) This looks like an amazing game. From what we know of it the game combines RPG elements with unique combat experience (you use an exoskeleton suit) to help you combat across a dystopian world. Star Trek: Bridge Crew Now here’s a game for Wookiee. In this Star Trek game you and a group of “friends” take command of a Starfleet ship and engage the Klingons in a punch up or two -that is assuming you’re not beating your […]

Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance (Film Review)

 

 I’d like to start off by saying this: People are fecking stupid! I’ve recently seen a number of “reviews” for this film and most of them seem to be suffering under the illusion that this is meant to be a top quality film. IT’S NOT! It’s supposed to be an amusing little indie action-comedy that is a sequel to a early ’90’s cult classic. In short, it’s a bit of fun for the fans. STOP TAKING LIFE SO SERIOUSLY! Right, now that that is over with we’ll get to this amazingly entertaining indie film. Right, so in 1991 a small gang of Americans produced a direct-to-video action-comedy that was considered so bad and so cringe worthy that it became an […]

Aliens?

I adore the Alien franchise. The original three films were fantastic. Yes, I said three! I loved Alien 3. Hell, I even enjoyed parts of Alien: Resurrection. I shall even be so bold as to say that I found joy in a few parts of the Alien VS Predator films. But, the one thing I have enjoyed even more than this amazing film franchise is the cheap knock-off’s and badly inspired films that have swamped the world since those glorious days. Welcome to my five favourite bastard children of the Alien franchise. The Deadly Spawn (1983) We’ll start with this little gem. Made for less than $25,000 this -let’s be honest here- indie film is perhaps one of the most […]

Social Arsonist (Band Interview)

Today we chat to Social Arsonist. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? SOCIAL ARSONIST is the cause of bassist Dario Zuniga and guitarist Manuel Morgado who started the band in 2009. Unable to locate the perfect vocalist in Chile, they found Canadian singer Cayle Charlton and worked with him for years via the internet, honing their material before taking the ultimate step of relocating to Canada. Inspired by Lamb of God, Pantera, Sepultura, Slayer, and Machine Head, Zuniga describes the sound of SOCIAL ARSONIST as ‘aggressive, fast, intense, catchy and disruptive.” Over the years the world has been able to hear the fruits of their labour with the release of their 2014 EP ‘De-Evolution of Thy […]

Deity (Band Interview)

Today we speak to the lads from Deity. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? Danny and I started jamming in high school just doing covers for fun. We then quickly got into writing original tunes. Starting as a three piece (just guitars), our goal was to blend different styles of metal with layers and harmonies. Our only problem was finding dedicated members, especially drummers and bassists. Through wise advise given to us by Keith of Rotting (Can), Danny then started playing drums. After a few years of struggling to find other members, the band decided to put the band on hold. Danny and I went on to do other projects in the local scene. We then […]
