Los Angeles punk metal stalwarts Motochrist are back with their fourth studio album Chrome. An underground supergroup of sorts, Motochrist consists of current and former members of The Dwarves, Junkyard, The Throbs, Humble Gods, NY Loose, Faster Pussycat, Stiv Bators and His Evil Boys, and L.A. Guns. The band’s sound is a high octane amalgam of all of those influences and more.

Check out the first single and video from Chrome right here below. The track is titled “I Don’t Ride Bitch” and it is our Massive Metal Monday selection for this week.

‘Captain America: Civil War’: A 12-Year-Old’s Thoughts
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Movie Review: Captain America: Civil War, starring Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr.

Captain America: Civil War is the 13th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The ongoing film series started back with Jon Favreau’s 2008 Iron Man, and has hit some incredible highs and some modest middles… honestly none of the films are bad, some just mildly disappointing. Directed again by the Russo Brothers (Captain America: Winter Soldier), the new film is the most challenging of the MCU thus far, asking the audience to choose sides over the Sokovia Accords, a treaty signed by hundreds of nations that would put the Avengers under the control of the UN. This is in response to all the past events in the series, but specifically an Avengers mission in Nigeria that stopped a sinister plot, but left many civilians dead. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is sick of watching his technology kill innocents, so he is firmly pro-Accords, whereas Captain America (Chris Evans) believes the whole point of the Avengers is to do what they feel must be done without interference. Things get more complicated when Cap’s old best friend and former brainwashed Hydra assassin Bucky, aka The Winter Soldier, (Sebastian Stan) is blamed for a terrorist attack.

Civil War marks the beginning of the MUC’s Phase 3, which includes a whopping 10 films, including standalones for Doctor Strange (November 2016), Spider-Man (July 2017), and Black Panther (July 2018), as well as sequels for Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy. By the time Phase 3 gets to the two-part climactic Infinity War saga in 2018-19, my son will be a 15-year-old high schooler. As for now, 12-year-old Brandon is obsessed with all things MCU. After seeing Civil War for a third time Thursday night, we got into a near hour-long Q&A about the film, the characters, and all things MCU. So I decided to track some of our talk in a little interview to give the pre-teen perspective.

Spoilers if you haven’t seen Captain America: Civil War yet…

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, future Jax (Franz Drameh) told Stein (Victor Garber) that joining Rip (Arthur Darvill) was the right decision, planting the seed of drugging Jax to get him to comply from the beginning of the season. Turns out the Waverider crew were not complete bumbling idiots after all… the Time Masters had been manipulating them the entire time, in order to help Savage (Casper Crump) take over. If he doesn’t… the worse threat of aliens will win. The team defeated the Time Masters, after Snart (Wentworth Miller) sacrificed himself, after getting a goodbye kiss from Sarah (Caity Lotz). Savage escaped with Kendra and Carter (Ciara Renee and Falk Hentschel) as prisoners.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are coming back this Summer for an all-new action adventure that brings in some very familiar faces to those who are fans of the 1980s animated series. A new trailer has popped up for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, which you can watch here below.

We’ve been covering the film for quite some time, and this trailer may be the best of all as it features better looks at the new threats that the Turtles will face. Previous trailers have featured the heroes in the half shell fighting against the likes of Shredder’s newest creations, Bebop and Rocksteady. But now they also have to contend with Dimension X’s greatest warlord, Krang – who will be voiced by Brad Garrett.

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

Last week’s Game Of Thrones saw the very first Stark sibling reunion when Sansa Stark escaped the clutches of her sadist husband Ramsay Bolton to make her way to The Wall, where, unbeknownst to her, her half-brother Jon Snow had just been resurrected. It also saw Daenerys Targaryen torch the Dosh Khaleen temple to the ground with the Khals in it, to emerging Unburnt and leading the Dothraki once again.

This week’s episode, Episode 6.5 “The Door,” was the first time this season where I was left with an unsettling feeling, because once again, our favorite characters are in danger, as are ones who we were just beginning to forgive.

eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Neighbors 2 starring Beanie Feldstein, Chloe Grace Moretz, and KIersey Clemons

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising finds our favorite young couple, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) Radner, making a new addition to their family. After they sell their house, it is put on a 30-day escrow. But when Kappa Nu, led by sorority sisters Chloe Grace Moretz, Kiersey Clemons, and Beanie Feldstein, move in right next door, the Radners worry that their neighbors’ hard partying antics will force the buyers to pull out. To prevent that from happening, they recruit their old nemesis, Teddy (Zac Efron), to their team to force Kappa Nu out of their neighborhood.

We were recently invited to sit down with a group of our fellow journalists at the film’s press conference to talk to Moretz, Clemons, and Feldstein about what it was like to join the successful comedy franchise, getting asked for their input on their roles in the script, the laws that affect current sororities, and much more. Check out our interview below.

Last week on Outlander, Jamie (Sam Heughan) finally told Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) the whole crazy time-traveling story, after he got angry about the duel being called off. Claire (Caitriona Balfe) went to warn Master Raymond (Dominique Pinon) about the king gunning for practitioners of the dark arts. They set up fake smallpox at the Comte’s (Stanley Weber) ship, and even had Murtagh play bandit when that did not work. Jamie went to duel with Randall (Tobias Menzies), which resulted in Claire screaming, bleeding, and fainting, Jamie sticking a sword in Randall’s groin, and both men arrested.
