'Beastly' is, well, beastly

“Beastly” 1.5/5 Pitchforks Rated PG-13 In theaters March 4 “Beastly” is marketing itself as a modern take on “Beauty and the Beast.” But the film isn’t so much of an update of that timeless tale as it is a mockery of it.

‘Take Me Home Tonight’ relies on ‘80s humor

3/5 Pithcforks The movie landscape of the 1980s is defined by its comedies: “The Breakfast Club,” “Ferris Bueller's Day Off“ and “Revenge of the Nerds” are perhaps the most loved relics of that era. “Take Me Home Tonight” is a nostalgic trip down memory lane that attempts to pay homage to the great ‘80s films.

‘Drive Angry’ is the first truly awful film of the year

1/5 Pitchforks Starring Nicolas Cage Release date: Feb. 25, 2011 Nicolas Cage continues his downward spiral from Oscar-winning actor to unemployable has-been with his latest movie “Drive Angry.” The movie tries to be a fun, campy, demonic version of a grindhouse film but fails in no small part due to Cage's performance.

'Bulletstorm' excitingly redefines destruction

4.5/5 Pitchforks Released on Feb. 22, 2011. PS3, Xbox 360 Rated Mature “Bulletstorm” is an innovative tale of revenge that pushes the boundary of creative destruction and over-the-top innuendo through wonderfully mindless violence that entices from the first fired round. The 26th-century first-person-shooter game follows Grayson Hunt, the leader of a military sanctioned assassination squad known as Dead Echo, and his plan to murder General Sarrano - Grayson’s foul-mouthed commander who betrays the trust his assassination force after they discover Sarrano’s ordered targets have been civilians. “Bulletstorm” kicks off to a fantastic cinematic beginning with Grayson and his comrade Ishi Sato interrogating a bounty hunter.

Review: 311 at the Marquee Theatre

A typical Tuesday night was twisted upside down when 311 graced the Marquee Theater in Tempe. The Nebraska natives put on a solid show that drew in crowds of all types — from hardcore rocker fans blowing off steam to brace-faced high school kids trying to catch a break. With a standing-room-only audience, 311 kicked off its set with “Down," bringing the energy through the roof and making it quickly obvious why this band has been selling out shows for more than two decades. The band's unique ability to combine different sounds, styles and music genres has earned 311 a well-deserved reputation for putting on a great live show.
