Nine Inch Nails: This Isn’t the Place

I’m a little late in adding this to the site but better late than never. Nine Inch Nail’s “This Isn’t the Place” is one of the best songs from the band’s new EP Add Violence. The track is menacing with its drone-like atmosphere and haunting piano keys. Check it out.

The Twilight Sad: I Could Give You All That You Don’t Want

No band currently makes doomful post-punk like The Twilight Sad. Their music always seem to be as if you are staring into the abyss with a hand slowly pushing you forwards. However, their music is quite rewarding to hear in the face of countless post-punk knockoffs and new wave imitators who released one album and…

The Machine

I have been watching non-stop science fiction movies over the past few weekends after watching “Interstellar” in theaters. I have been actually surprised by the amount of great and interesting sci-fi movies that are out there. One of these recent discoveries is “The Machine” which was written by director Caradog W.

Salem

I recently finished the TV series Salem and I was really surprised by how good it actually was.

I watched the trailer for this film earlier today and was completely taken in by how little it states…

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I re-watched David Fincher’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and there was so much that I realized that I missed from my first initial viewing. I had forgotten the significance of the clock that turned backwards and that Benjamin had a daughter with Daisy. I was completely surprised at these additions and asked myself…
