Music Monday

Mondays suck. Music makes ‘em better.
Gruber at REDACTED Why start a new music blog with a review of a show you’ll never get to see? Because of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, for one.

Utah Short Film of the Year Competition at Utah Arts Festival

Local filmmakers reach for inspiring subjects
The overall theme of the Fear No Film short films program at the Utah Arts Festival may be "Memory," but the seven entries in the Utah Short Film of the Year program aren't generally focused on looking backward. They're about the inspiring prospect of moving forward.

Movie Reviews: Transformers 5, The Bad Batch, Beatriz at Dinner

Band Aid, Citizen Jane
Big car-robots do their big car-robot thing at the multiplex, while indie releases include a documentary about a 1950s urban activist and a pair of 2017 Sundance comedies. Zoe Lister-Jones' Band Aid finds acidic comedy in a couple turning their dysfunctional marriage into songs, until it all gets a bit too real.

Movie Reviews: Cars 3, All Eyez on Me, Book of Henry, Monterey Pop

Paris Can Wait, 47 Meters Down, Rough Night
The weekend is behind us (and with it my vacation week), but you can still catch up with our reviews of new theatrical releases. Paris Can Wait tries to be a light-hearted story of a woman at a life crossroads, but instead ends up feeling like a creepy stalker movie.

Movie Reviews: The Mummy, It Comes At Night, Megan Leavey

My Cousin Rachel; I, Daniel Blake
Horror come in the form of an ancient curse and human paranoia in local multiplexes, while a true military story, a literary adaptation and the latest working-class tale from Ken Loach fill out this week's offerings. Megan Leavey  tells the fact-based tale of a soldier and her bomb-sniffing dog, in a way that's interesting without ever becoming truly inspirational.

Movie Review: Wonder Woman

Finding the appeal in super-heroes who actually want to be heroes
In a multiplex world where the Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps churning out well-liked blockbusters, rival comic-book publisher DC has a big-screen problem. It's not so much a financial problem; recent efforts like Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad all managed big box-office numbers.

Gavin's Underground: End Of An Era

Nine and a half years of local entertainment blogging comes to an end.
I knew one I'd be writing a post like this; City Weekly has decided to discontinue Gavin's Underground. To be clear, nothing terrible happened between myself and the ownership/editorial team; I'm still on their freelance roster.

Movie Reviews: Pirates of the Caribbean, Baywatch, The Lovers

Buena Vista Social Club: Adios, My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea
The Memorial Day weekend brings two big summer releases, while even art house documentary brings us a disappointing sequel. Buena Vista Social Club: Adios follows up the 1999 documentary with more details, but a missed opportunity to explore one particularly intriguing story in depth.
