Black Sun Dispatches Episode 6: Black Mold

Welcome to the city beneath the black sun. Lost in a dark world, surrounded by an endless desert filled with countless threats, the citizens still standing are forced to make a life for themselves in a strange and hostile land where terror and wonder wait behind every corner. Not every monster that is found in the city beneath the black sun was born there. Some began in the days before, their roots already planted deep. But the black sun nourished them, grew them, and gave them a new and stranger life. This episode’s story is about a patch of black

THE MANDATE Episode 7: 47 Meters Down

File this one under “we sat through this so you didn’t have to”. For this week’s episode of The Mandate, I got with Tony Ortolano of the infamous South Jersey mosh riffers, Dissent, and we sacrificed all good judgment with a screening of the Mandy Moore lead, 47 Meters Down. Going into this film all I knew was that Moore was the lead, it had an oddly specific depth for a title, and that it contained sharks. All of this I got from a lame cutout advertisement in which you could pose as if you were being eaten by a

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 03: Always Intense

Hello again, friends and fiends! On this episode of GOT ME A MOVIE, we’ll be talking about Alex Cox’s stylish feature debut, Repo Man…and Alex Cox’s flub of a sequel (remake?), Repo Chick. Repo Man is often championed as a symbol of freedom, a quintessential representation of the spirit of Los Angeles punk rock in the early ‘80s. It’s a film that’s often hard to describe: is it a comedy? It has humor, but it’s strangely more serious than that. Is it science fiction? I mean, there are aliens…right? Is it a car movie? Not quite. But what’s definite about

THE MANDATE Episode 6: THE MUMMY

  In this episode of the Mandate, I sit down with longtime friend and show goer, Tony Corrado, to see Tom Cruise lead reboot of The Mummy. Two films with Brendan Fraiser and a half a dozen spinoffs, and direct to DVD sequels to those spinoffs, sent the franchise into financial and critical hell. Universal has decided to breath life back into the series by starting fresh. It’s also meant to serve as the jump off point for the new Dark Universe that will feature the likes of The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, as well as other unconfirmed Universal

CINEPUNX Episode 65: THE NEW YORK HARDCORE CHRONICLES FILM Event Recap

WELCOME FRIENDS, ENEMIES, CRETINS AND DANDYS! I dunno. Yes, it is another stage-divingly good episode of CINEPUNX! On this episode we have the Q&A portion of our event, the Philly “Premiere” of THE NEW YORK HARDCORE CHRONICLES FILM! The event was a lot of fun, but it also was maybe not what we expected it to be. So we recorded a lengthy introduction with our co-presenter and friend of the show and host of L!F!P!  Joseph Gervasi. Basically, if you wanna hear us discuss how it went, the idea of punk documentaries, and maybe some other random stuff, that is the
