Hobbs and Shaw: an unimpressive addition to the Fast & Furious catalog

If one franchise could safely secure the title of most unexpected longevity in film history, it would most likely be the “Fast & Furious” series. The original film, titled exactly that in 2001, was a moderate success. It did well with audiences, but to critics it was essentially a “Point Break” (1991) remake if you...

Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood may be one of the better summer films

Quentin Tarantino’s new film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” is pretty much what one would expect from Tarantino rewriting 1960s history for his own art, much like he did with WW2 in “Inglourious Basterds” (2009) or the Civil War in “Django Unchained” (2012). If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like if real life, and...

Lettuce and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue headlining upcoming Telluride Jazz Festival

Telluride has since 1977 been putting on one helluva jazz party, earning national and international applause for its top-of-the-line classic, mainstream, blues, African, Cajun, and Latin jazz music lineup. It’s a festival that honors the country’s long history of jazz, which is rooted in blues and ragtime.

The jazz...

Jakob Dylan’s Echo in the Canyon is a documentary tribute to Laurel Canyon musical pioneers

The biggest counter-culture movement in modern history arguably occurred in the 1960s, both as a society and in pop culture. As most who lived during that decade or have extensively researched it can attest to, though, it was also a period that ended on a sour note, thanks to the violence and addiction issues that ran rampant...

Everything is Terrible!, Sugarland, and Stillhouse Junkies performing in Four Corners

It’s the time of year when summer will start slowing down and, unfortunately, that means live music will be slowing down, too. The good news is that there are still plenty of road-trip worthy shows coming to the Colorado and New Mexico region.

In Albuquerque, we’ve got performances by Sugarland at Sandia Amphitheater...

Thunderpussy snatches crowd at Telluride’s RIDE Festival

“Don’t you want somebody to love? Don’t you need somebody to love? Wouldn’t you love somebody to love? You better find somebody to love.”

Amidst an alluring dance, Molly Sides, the lead singer for Thunderpussy, belts out a cover of Jefferson Airplane’s first hit, “Somebody to Love,” to the crowd at Telluride RIDE...

Ari Aster’s Midsommar is a relationship fever dream on film

Last summer marked the debut of filmmaker Ari Aster with his critical hit “Hereditary.” Following the film’s debut, movie fanatics and insiders were almost instantly predicting that Aster would be the next big thing in the horror genre. But while critics and fans may be pinning Aster as the new horror god, the director...

Yesterday should be a stellar movie, but it’s just OK

Danny Boyle’s “Yesterday” is the second film this summer season to feature a classic rock soundtrack, and it hits theaters one month after “Rocketman,” and a month before “Blinded by the Light.” As someone who’s considered the Beatles her favorite band since high school, it’s been really hard for me to buy into Hollywood...

Rock on, Telluride: Widespread Panic, Jason Isbell at RIDE Festival

It’s no secret that Telluride is a Southwest hub for all things art, film, and music, so it shouldn’t surprise you that yet another larger-than-life festival will be gracing its stages this month.

From July 12-14, music lovers will flock to the mountain town for The RIDE Festival, an event that’s been entirely dedicated...

Pitbull and Boys II Men among the July shows Southwesterners have to look forward to

It’s finally summer and we’re hot for music. It’s time to take a look at all the upcoming height-of-the-heat shows that are coming to the Colorado and New Mexico areas.

As y’all know, concerts are a great excuse to leave the comfort of your home and road trip a few hours down the highway. On top of that, summer is the...

E3 explores the next year in gaming: Sequels, spinoffs and new releases

Announcement hangover. It’s usually difficult to keep up with the latest release dates for video game franchises and downloadable content, but E3 was a whirlwind of a week.

This year, fans of the expo feared the worst, yet hoped for the best. We laughed, we cried, and we cringed. Without Sony, Blizzard Activision and...
