Megadeth – So Far, So Good… So What! 30 Years Later

  When you think of Megadeth what great albums come into mind? “Peace Sells”? “Rust in Peace”? “Killing Is My Business”? Well, what about this album?  No? Why? For some reason, “So Far, So Good… So What!” has received the unfortunate treatment of being sandwiched between the two albums that are considered Megadeth’s best, “Peace […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘I, Tonya’ is a surprisingly endearing story of a million different views

I know I’m late on this one. Bite me. I learned about Tonya Harding from a relatively early age. My mom watched a lot of the VH1 docu-series “I Love the ’70s” and “I Love the ’80s,” which I often watched with her. I loved picking up on pop culture of a different era, on […]

TV REVIEW: ‘The Challenge: Vendettas’ – Episode 2

Did you know reality TV shows have main characters? Well welcome back to “The Challenge: Vendettas,” where Johnny Bananas and Cara Maria are being showcased along with their romantic interests and steamy vendettas. I truly (and very shortly) thought that the episode would…move on a bit from those particular storylines. Alas it was short lived, […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Proud Mary’ is a fine film that falls short of being truly great

When the first poster for “Proud Mary” came about, the world had a collective scream to commemorate the film that people have been asking for forever: an action film with a black female lead. It’s hard to find films with black female leads in general, but one in a genre film kicking some serious ass? […]

TV REVIEW: ‘The End of the F***ing World’ – Season 1

Minor spoiler warning for the eight-episode first season of “The End of the F***ing World.” Surprising, endearing and stunning are the first three words that pop into my head when I think about this series. Originally airing in the United Kingdom on Channel 4, “The End of the F***ing World” was released internationally on Netflix […]

TV REVIEW: ‘America’s Next Top Model’ – ‘The Boss is Back’

I’m obsessed with the Top Model shows, though you have to pay tribute to the original for real worship. “America’s Next Top Model” premiered on UPN in 2003 and has since spawned 24 seasons since, with creator Tyra Banks hosting and playing lead judge in 23 out of the 24 seasons. The show has inspired […]

Five Essential David Bowie Albums

When you hear the name David Bowie, what do you think? What songs/albums come into mind? What would do if you want to get into the man’s music. It’s really difficult task as Bowie released 25 albums from 1967 to his death in 2016. And in that time, he has managed to take on various […]

Since “The Challenge: Invasion of the Champs” (Season 29), MTV has been relentless with its release of back to back challenges. And it’s definitely paying off. With 31 seasons of challenges, beginning in 1998 and not including three spin off specials, eight seasons have premiered in the last 5 years. In the newest (and most […]

TV REVIEW: ‘The X-Files’ – ‘My Struggle III’

WARNING: Spoilers for “The X-Files” ahead. I’ll be honest, I hated the finale to the last season of “The X-Files,” for what was a decent season overall. My biggest fear after the finale of the mini-series that was season 10 of the iconic show was that we were to leave one of the greatest shows of […]

GAMING REVIEW: ‘Star Wars: Battlefront 2’

The original “Battlefront” games were some of my favorites on the PS2, bringing together two of my favorite things in “Star Wars” and video games. Being able to play in battles across all the films was the a treat, and the care put into them was very apparent. When EA was announced to hold the […]

Best Songs of 2017 as Selected by A&E Writers

Jeffrey Kopp 5. “Like Gold” by Vance Joy: This Australian singer-songwriter first appeared on my radar back in 2013 via his hit single “Riptide.” Years later, I randomly came across “Like Gold,” a single from his upcoming album “Nation of Two,” on Spotify and I was immediately reeled in with its catchy hook. This is a song […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘All the Money in the World’ is a stylishly bold take on toxic capitalism

It’s almost impossible to talk about “All the Money in the World” without talking about the major scandal surrounding the film’s controversial and bold recasting decision made just one month ago. After the accusations of sexual assault against star Kevin Spacey, who portrayed J. Paul Getty in the film, director Ridley Scott, with only a […]
