But after Danvers has trained and worked with the Starforce team, and become a valued member­, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. While on Earth she quickly lands on the radar of Nick Fury, and they must work together against a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls—the notorious Marvel bad guys made even more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities—and their leader, Talos, who is spearheading a Skrull invasion of Earth.

Movie Review by Kristin: THE LAST SUMMER

Happy Hump Day, movie lovers!

I was able to check out Netflix’s newest rom-com, THE LAST SUMMER this week and, I have to say, I enjoyed it!

SYNOPSIS: Teens from a Chicago high school grapple with their dreams, relationships and identities in a transformative summer before they leave for college. 

Let’s start off with the cast. This cast was a mix of well-known actors (KJ Apa as Griffin, Maia Mitchell as Phoebe and Tyler Posey as Ricky) and relatively unknowns. Some of the characters were a bit over the top, and I’m not sure if that was due to a lack of experience or if that’s just how the characters were made to be. Either way, the majority of the cast fit really well together in their own little storylines. They’re never all together in one scene, which contributes to making this movie a bit more relatable for some people. In high school, you’re not always in this huge group of people that always gets along. Sometimes you’re alone or with one friend or with that person you have heart eyes for.

Each set of storylines were interesting to watch play out. Whether you’re recently graduating from high school or you graduated long ago, we all remember that crossroads moment when you realize everything is about to change. The characters in THE LAST SUMMER are all facing that familiar crossroad, so it brings back a sense of nostalgia for the viewer. Relationship troubles, applying to colleges, not getting into the college you had your eyes set on, figuring out where you’re headed and what mistakes you’ve made along the way . . . all of that plays out in this movie.

There’s not much action and it may not be my favorite movie ever, but it’s definitely worth a watch. The cast is great, the setting makes you want to pack your bags and head to Chicago, and it’s just a feel good movie that brings you back to that special time when you truly discover that life is at your fingertips.

Check it out for yourself, now on Netflix, and let me know what you thought!

Movie Review by Kristin: LONG SHOT

Ahhhhh!!!

A Charlize Theron & Seth Rogen team up is everything I never knew I needed! You’ll understand once you see LONG SHOT for yourself!

SYNOPSIS: Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. Smart, sophisticated, and accomplished, she’s a powerhouse diplomat with a talent for…well, mostly everything. Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted and free spirited journalist with a self-destructive streak. The two have nothing in common, except that she was his baby sitter and first crush. When Fred unexpectedly reunites with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humor and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte impulsively hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors. A fish out of water on Charlotte’s elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamourous and high stakes lifestyle. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance that becomes embroiled in a series of dangerous and outlandish incidents.

What did I think of the movie, you ask?

Admittedly, I didn’t know much about it going into the screening, but I walked out wanting to see it again. It has the perfect blend of comedy, politics, sarcasm, romance & more comedy sprinkled over everything else you can think of that makes a movie great. The whole thing actually really surprised me!

Even my brother enjoyed it & he hates when comedies have any kind of romance in them lol. He thinks it waters down the funny. But not this time!

Charlize Theron is incredible as she tackles the role of an extremely powerful woman (which . . . GIRL POWER, am I right?) & a comedic genius, I dare say! Her on-screen chemistry with Seth Rogen is great & they really make quite the dynamic duo. O’Shea Jackson, Jr. also stands out as the comedic bestie of Seth Rogen’s character. Can I just say that we need O’Shea in more roles like this??

If cursing, drugs & sex aren’t your thing, you might want to skip this movie, but you’d be doing yourself a huge disservice. Yes, those things (mostly the cursing) are consistent throughout, but they all fit so perfectly. Give it a chance, like I did, and you can thank me once you’ve seen it this Friday, May 3rd!

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG| New Official Trailer, Official Poster and Images!

img_8740Ahhhh! The nostalgia is real, people! Everyone remembers setting up their Sega console to play Sonic back in the day. Sending him (or her) in spin mode, collecting every coin you laid eyes on just so you could hear the little ping sound, defeating Dr. Robotnik at the end of a level. It was definitely one of my favorite games to play as a kid, so I’m excited to catch our favorite little hedgehog on the big screen! Aren’t you??

Check out the poster, trailer and images from the upcoming movie, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG – In theaters November 8, 2019!

Pop Rock Band HAAS Releases New Single “Mama Always Told Me”

img_8562Virginia-based pop/rock project HAAS have released their new single, “Mama Always Told Me,” out on all digital music platforms NOW. Just the band’s second single (their debut “Behind Those Eyes” was released in February), HAAS has a clear identity. Approaching the pop/rock genre with confidence, lead vocalist Sam Haas injects the music with heart ache, power, and an authenticity that can’t be mimicked. Although new, HAAS knows their sound (think of a Kelly Clarkson/The Veronicas/Ashlee Simpson modern combo), and takes it on with emotion. “Mama Always Told Me” continues to paves the way for HAAS’ five-track debut EP, due out next month. About the single, lead vocalist Sam Haas states:

“Mama Always Told Me” is the second single off HAAS’ upcoming EP. This song is about my feelings towards important people in my life at that time and how hurt I was by their actions. This song describes what went down and how confused I was by it all.  These relationships were an immense learning experience and taught me that people aren’t always what/who you think they are. The final line “mama always told me you were never worth it” shows that number one, mom always knows best and secondly that you eventually learn and grow from situations that broke you.

HAAS is a pop/rock band from Virginia. The name HAAS stems from lead vocalist Sam Haas who decided to pay tribute to not only her family name but her late grandfather who inspired her through his music. After years of playing around with names and ideas, HAAS became the official name in 2018. Through the use of catchy melodies, rhythmic guitars, and expressive lyrics, HAAS has been able to marry the pop/rock sound. The group uses music not only as an outlet for themselves, but want the music to be an outlet for others. They draw on personal hardships, such as loss, strained relationships, bullying, depression, and anxiety, but also hardships within the world today. HAAS strives to promote a place of safety and inclusivity, where it is okay to be who you are and forget about the real world for a minute. HAAS has discussed being bullied and scared of being who they are and by embracing themselves, they hope to inspire others to do the same; “love who you are and don’t be afraid to do the things you want.” HAAS plans to release their debut five-song EP in the Spring. Their new single “Mama Always Told Me” is available on all digital platforms NOW.

ANNOUNCE LIVE ALBUM

LARKINS: LIVE AT THE ALBERT HALL, MANCHESTER

DIGITAL RELEASE APRIL 19th
PHYSICAL RELEASE JULY 5th

VIA GOOD SOLDIER RECORDS

‘TV DREAM’
LIVE AT THE ALBERT HALL
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

HEADLINE SHOW ANNOUNCED
DINGWALLS, LONDON – JUNE 19th
TICKETS ON-SALE NOW HERE

Larkins have announced the release of the live album Larkins: Live At The Albert Hall, Manchester, due for digital release on April 19th and physically on CD, cassette and vinyl from July 5th via Good Soldier Records. The album is available for fans to pre-order here.

The album was recorded at their landmark hometown show to 2000 rapturous fans last month. To mark the announcement the band have released a live video of their latest single, ‘TV Dream’, captured at the Albert Hall.

Regarding the live album frontman Josh Noble says, “We are very proud to present a recording from our live show at the Albert Hall in Manchester. It felt like everything we had done so far as a band had kind of led to this moment. We’ve played almost every venue in town over the past few years and we’d always joked about playing Albert Hall, half-expecting it to never happen.

“Our first show was in a pub to just 30 people just around the corner from the Albert Hall so to get to this point and to have so many people who want to see our music live is surreal. This tour has showed us what it means to be a part of this band and to finish at home was perfect. To every single person that came, we can’t even express how much we loved the show. What you hear is what we played on the night and hopefully this gives you an idea of what’s to come.”

Larkins are on a meteoric rise as one of the most exciting and in-demand bands to emerge from Manchester in recent times. They sell out headline shows across the UK and Europe, and played their first US shows this year at SXSW Festival.

On the back of an incredible sold out show at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen last week, Larkins have announced their next London headline show and will play Dingwalls on June 19th. Tickets are on-sale now here.

The band have also been announced for a number of summer festivals this year including Live At Leeds, Neighbourhood, Y Not Festival and La French Escapade in Paris.

Larkins released their Good Soldier Records debut single ‘TV Dream’ last month to an ecstatic reaction from fans and media alike, clocking up over a million plays. They have received strong radio support from Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Radio X and Beats 1.

The band are currently recording their debut album with producers Dan Nigro (A-Trak, Sky Ferreira, Lewis Capaldi) and Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Fun, Kid Cudi) – a record which is sure to send Larkins even further into the stratosphere.

ARTISTS TO DONATE ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SONG TO
THE GARY SINISE FOUNDATION
IN SUPPORT OF FIRST RESPONDERS

The multi-platinum rock group Five Finger Death Punch has teamed up with the legendary Brian May of Queen and two of the biggest names in country and blues rock, Brantey Gilbert and Kenny Wayne Shepherd to record a special version of the song ‘Blue On Black’ mixed by Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Shania Twain, Disturbed).

Titans in each of their respective genres, the artists came together to merge country and mainstream rock to re-create the classic song originally co-written by Shepherd. Taking Country Rock to the next level, ‘Blue On Black’ is out today worldwide via Prospect Park (North America) and Eleven Seven Music (ex. North America).

The artists are donating all proceeds from the collaboration to the GARY SINISE FOUNDATION which honors America’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.

Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory states, “To raise awareness for and support first responders is a cause that’s always been close to our hearts. These brave men and women leave their homes every morning not knowing if they’ll ever see their families again. Yet they make a conscious choice to do so for the greater good. What better way to make a difference than to join forces with some of our friends in country, blues and classic rock who happen to be some of the biggest names in those genres and together celebrate these heroes.“

“’Blue on Black’ is a song my band and I have covered off and on for years… songs are certified timeless when you can come back to them,” says Brantley Gilbert. “It’s always a staple each night and one of my favorite songs to perform.  When the opportunity came up to sing on Five Finger’s version, with both Kenny Wayne and Brian May of Queen, I jumped at the chance… Who wouldn’t?! It incorporates so many different musical perspectives, but our collaboration just works brilliantly.”

Blues rock legend Kenny Wayne Shepherd adds: “When Five Finger Death Punch approached me about teaming up with them to do a special version of ‘Blue On Black’, I was thrilled to do it.  When they told me Brantley Gilbert and Brian May were also going to be part of it, I was honored. This is a powerful collaboration of rock, country and blues artists and a true testament to the commonalities these musical styles share and I think the fans will appreciate and enjoy it as much as we do.”

Allen Kovac, CEO of Eleven Seven Label Group, Tenth Street Entertainment and Five Finger Death Punch’s manager for close to a decade adds, “From Johnny Cash’s ‘I Walk The Line’ and The Rolling Stones ‘Honky Tonk Woman’ to The Eagles and Willie Nelson, country and rock have shared an audience, and created some of the biggest and most successful records of all time. It’s time to bring it all back again for First Responders. Let’s tear down the walls!”

“We are proud of our nearly 12-year legacy with Five Finger Death Punch,” adds John Bowen, General Manager of Prospect Park, the band’s North American label. “We are excited to release a single that will open new eyes and ears to what we believe is an incredible song, interpreted with phenomenal skill by all of the artists involved.  We are also proud of the conscientious nature of this release, in support of the Gary Sinise Foundation. Rock is dead? We don’t think so.”  

Big Machine Label Group – home of country superstar Brantley Gilbert and the biggest label in country music – is also fully supportive of the country-rock single. Founder and CEO Scott Borchetta offers, “Maybe you didn’t see this coming… or maybe you did… Two American super-powers come together to create a megaton track that will have both the Brantley Gilbert Nation & 5FDP Fans screaming for more. Unleash the beast.”

Brian May of Queen loved the song ‘Blue On Black’ and set up a special recording session and video shoot to be featured on it all in between his work as a producer and executive music producer with Roger Taylor of the Queen biography film Bohemian Rhapsody. Brian and Roger are responsible for one of the highest grossing films of all time ($900,000,000+) across the world and the winner of Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe Awards. Brian May will perform with Queen + Adam Lambert throughout 2019 and 2020.

Additionally, Five Finger Death Punch’s original cover version of ‘Blue On Black’ has already generated over 50 million on-demand streams in the US, and is one of the most-consumed songs on the band’s current album (averaging over 1 million US streams per week). The song features distorted guitars, pummeling percussion and a swaggering chant that marks a surprising outlier on Five Finger Death Punch’s current and seventh studio album, And Justice For None. In the US alone, Five Finger Death Punch have sold 4.5 million albums, 10 million digital songs and over 3 billion streams total.

ARCHIE FAULKS Releases Beautiful New Single ‘Wonderful’

img_8374

‘WONDERFUL’
NEW SINGLE RELEASED
LISTEN ON SPOTIFY / SOUNDCLOUD

UK HEADLINE TOUR STARTS TOMORROW (APRIL 13th)

Archie Faulks has released his brand new single ‘Wonderful’ ahead of starting his debut UK headline tour starting April 13th. Kicking off at The Jacaranda in Liverpool, Archie will play a further six dates across the country, finishing with a headline show at London’s Camden Assembly on April 23rd. Tickets are available via Music Glue.

The new single ‘Wonderful’ is a beautifully melancholic love song, displaying Archie’s alluring vocals and guitar alongside a stunning string section.

Regarding the song Archie says, “‘Wonderful’ is a song inspired by the melancholy associated with the inevitable passing of time and the effect of it on the relationship of two people. A once glorious thing that, due to different paths chosen in life, could never come to fruition but is maintained through the thought of what could have been. 

“It stemmed from the realization that although there was still something strong there between us, it would never grow into anything more than it had been in the fleeting months at the start of the relationship. When lonely or in pain we can seek refuge in the glory days of our pasts and perhaps dream of a time when we can recapture these moments; however in reality we know that things, no matter how hard we want them, will never be what they once were. Before you realize what you have it is gone only remaining in the memory of feelings, places and song.”

‘Wonderful’ is the latest in a string of singles released since Archie emerged last year. It follows the release of the acclaimed songs ‘Hung Up’, ‘Blackout’ and ‘It Rains’. The singles have proved radio hits with support coming from Radio 1 and Radio X and they have also clocked up over 2 million streams across Apple Music and Spotify.

The songs are a taste of Archie’s forthcoming debut album which fans have been treated to a sneak preview of during his touring last year. Archie played his first shows in the US, toured Europe with Isaac Gracie and Rue Royale, and sold out his headline shows at London’s St Pancras Old Church & Servant Jazz Quarters.

Archie kicks off his debut UK headline tour tomorrow and has also been announced to play a number of festivals in May including The Great Escape, Live At Leeds and Wood Festival. Full tour dates can be found below:
