Short Film Review – In The Dark
I usually don’t watch gay short films or web-series due to their typical clichés and stereotypes such as: A group of sassy friends, with the main protagonist looking for love with over the top acting and shade. Masculinity only being represented in the form of…
The 2017 Range Rover Evoque Convertible Review
The summer is over now and not a minute too soon as Land Rover has just took the veil off the North American production version of their new 2017 Range Rover Evoque Convertible. Now a picture may be worth 1000 words (Thank God for that)…
American Horror Story: Roanoke
I recently watched American Horror Story’s season six premiere “Roanoke” and I must say I enjoyed it. Even though I actually hate the show after season two, I do like the idea of the show paying homage to and mimicking the popularity of reality…
FRIENDS OF THE PEOPLE – Why Come Y’all Didn’t Tell Me About This Show?!
First no one made me aware of the brilliant ignorance that was Loiter Squad, now I have to accidentally stumble upon TruTV’s original sketch comedy show “Friends of the People” as it approaches the end of its second season.
Mini Music Reviews: D’Angelo, J. Cole and Ghostface Killah
I’m no fancy music critic, just a regular dude, who is a consumer and I like what I like. Of course a review is the reviewer’s personal opinion and we all know opinions vary. So understand that I’m not trying to bash the artist you…
CARS: Aston Martin Vanquish Volante’
Aston Martin, builder of such fine English coupes as the Aston Martin DB9, DB7, DBS, the Vantage, and the Rapide, have been hard at work developing and testing new products. Never a slouch in the design department, they have decided to really push the…
“American Horror Story” Tanks as “The Walking Dead” Finally Resurrects
The more I watch of the new seasons of “The Walking Dead” (TWD) and “American Horror Story” (AHS) the more I’m convinced that I’m in bizarro world. One reliably great show has hit the skids while another consistently bad show has turned a corner for the better.
LastO, ‘Where’s Vivian’: Track-By-Track Review
“Where’s Vivian” is a wild, sometimes disjointed, introspective ride that gives you a full lyrical picture of an artist’s growth over the last 4 years…all done out-of-pocket without label support. The album demonstrates that the extended hiatus was actually more than worth the wait. This is not only the best best Hip Hop album from an openly gay rapper, its also one of the best independent Hip Hop albums released in all of 2013.
FILM REVIEW: GRAVITY (aka The Taint Tingler in IMAX 3D)
While it may not be as dense in story as a scifi film like Inception, this simple tale more than makes up for the price of admission in solid action, a lean screenplay with sold directing, atmospheric music and jaw-dropping special effects.
FILM REVIEW: The Young and Evil
The five-year-old black gay short film, The Young and Evil, recently resurfaced online as a cautionary tale for gay men of all ages. The intention may have been to garner sympathy for the main character, instead it comes off as a horror movie chronicling the origin of a villain.
WEB SERIES REVIEW: FREEFALL (aka Baywatch on Land) – Episode 12 “Pressure”
This web series has now officially been renamed “Baywatch on Land.” Campy soap opera writing, weak acting from interchangeable shirtless models and a fan base that will watch anything earns it the new title.
Web Series Roundup: No Shade, The OUT Crowd & Freefall
New web series episodes dropped this week, folks. We have a couple returning champions as well as a new contestant to the arena. I’ve actually lost count on how many active gay web series that are currently in rotation. I guess that’s a good thing.
FILM REVIEW: A Band Called Death
The film tells the story of three brothers from Detroit, Michigan who started what was then the first Punk Rock band ever. This was years before The Ramones would hit the scene and become music legends.
CYPHER AVE RECAPS: No Shade 08 “Trans-cending”
True, No Shade features some flamboyant effeminate men, transgender women and more than a few black gay stereotypes…but its pretty damn good. I can’t deny that. This is one of the two best black gay web series ever made.
