REKT: Queen – Live at Wembley

This is REKT, the column where each month one Cinepunx staffer recommends films to the rest of the fam. We may be stoked, or we may be wrecked. This month, it’s Nick Spacek’s turn to do the damage. Here are Adrianna’s thoughts on Queen – Live at Wembley Stadium.   When Nick’s list of recommendations for the month came in, my eyes lit up as I read through the titles and realized they were all concert films. I grew up in a family of musicians and film lovers, so it was practically my genetic destiny to become both; suffice to say, this

Bookshelf: INTO THE VALLEY & WE ARE THE CLASH Explore Less-Examined Punk Stories

Crowdfunding can bring us some amazing things. I certainly never anticipated that I’d be reading the autobiography of Richard Jobson, frontman for Scottish punk band The Skids, but here I am with a copy of Into the Valley — and in hardcover, no less, thanks to Wymer Publishing and a successful Pledgemusic campaign. For those who are familiar with the minutiae of late ‘70s and early ‘80s UK punk rock, The Skids are a fairly familiar band. Their first LP, Scared to Dance, brought the hit from which Jobson’s book draws its name, along with the title track and “The

REKT: The Watermelon Woman

This is REKT, the column where each month one Cinepunx staffer recommends films to the rest of the fam. We may be stoked, or we may be wrecked. This month, it’s Adrianna Gober’s turn to do the damage. Here are Liam’s thoughts on The Watermelon Woman.   REKT is a column that allows the various writers of Cinepunx to interact with each other on a creative level. By writing about a film that one of your colleagues has chosen to share with you, you are engaging them intellectually, and hopefully being drawn into a world of film and filmmaking you might

SEQUENCE BREAK Director Graham Skipper Chats with Cinepunx

Graham Skipper’s directorial debut is up on Shudder now! If you aren’t sure whether you should check it out, trust me when I tell you you that it’s a great and goopy blend of body horror and techno-horror. Our very own Nick Spacek covered the film last week, so you don’t need to take my word for it. I had the chance to catch up with Graham over the weekend to chat about the film and what else he’s up to: Hey Graham, I feel like we’re old friends now. Talking about your film on my podcast a few months
