Farewell, Starman

Zach's picture

David Bowie passed away on Sunday, January 10th, just two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his 25th studio album entitled Blackstar.  Bowie greatly influenced the music industry, and popular culture as a whole, with his ever-changing musical style and out-of-this-world personas.

On top of being a legendary artist, Bowie was an avid reader.  He posted a list of his top 100 books to his Facebook page back in 2013. Check out the list here: ...Read more

Critics Choice

Mr.Holmes (2015)

“The famous English detective Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen) has retired and now at the age of 93 resides in the Sussex countryside where he tends to his bees. The year is 1947, and he has just returned from Japan where he obtained an herb called prickly ash which is said to enhance longevity and prevent senility. His host (Hiroyuki Sanada) finds the herb when they go to a garden in a bombed out region of Hiroshima to witness the havoc wrought by human destructiveness.” Full Review

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck (2015)

I’m too sensitive,” Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain wrote in his 1994 suicide note. This helped cement the popular image of him as a doomed depressive, a far too limited view that Brett Morgen explodes with his eyes-wide-open film, which is authorized but also honest. Making full use of Cobain’s tapes, home movies, journals and art, much of it never before released to the public, Morgen shades in the stark sketch of the grunge rocker. The multimedia mother lode left by Cobain includes homemade Super 8 horror movies and rough musical drafts of what would later become Nirvana hits.” Full Review

Timbuktu (2015)

“There’s an anguished breadth to the Oscar-nominated “Timbuktu,” a simple tragic tale that manages to illuminate the grim absurdities of oppression at the same time it juxtaposes the modern with the primitive. Jihadists have taken over the ancient Malian city of Timbuktu in West Africa. They prowl the city’s narrow streets with rifles, shouting commandments through a bullhorn. All women must wear veils, gloves and socks. Music is outlawed — get caught singing in your own living room and it’s 30 lashes. Games and soccer are outlawed, even though the Jihadists argue among themselves about which international soccer teams are the best.” Full Review
