MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Black Mass’ Does Not Celebrate Whitey Bulger

Film: Black Mass Starring: Johnny Depp, Joel Edgerton Directed by: Scott Cooper My faith in Johnny Depp has been restored.

It’s Time You Fell In Love With Young Punk Heroes Choke Up

Pop punk has dominated the alternative scene for the better part of the last half decade. So much so, in fact, that many seem to have forgotten there are variations of punk that don’t involve constant references to friendship, pizza, and getting over that girl who broke your heart in junior high.
