Do It Again (2010) Film Review

Director: Robert Patton-Spruill Starring: Geoff Edgers Do It Again documents Boston music critic Geoff Edgers’ quest to reunite his favorite band of all time, the Kinks. But as anyone who knows the Kinks at all, this monumental task is akin to turning water into wine. Reuniting the Kinks would mean putting a bandaid and some...Read...

Bunny and The Bull (2009) Film Review

Director: Paul King Starring: Edward Hogg, Simon Farnaby Bunny and the Bull marks the feature film directorial debut of Paul King, well-known in the U.K. for directing The Mighty Boosh. While both Boosh and Bunny are firmly entrenched in the “buddy comedy” genre, it is there where similarities end. Bunny and the Bull finds Paul...Read...

Wu-Tang Saga (2010) Film Review

I have nothing against Cappadonna. I respect his skills as an emcee and consider him a real part of the Wu-Tang Clan. Even though Wikipedia calls him a quasi-member. Even though he was in prison when they signed. Even though he doesn’t really contribute anything unique to the crew. He’s a good guy and I...Read...

Wolf Parade – EXPO 86 Album Review

Wolf Parade’s debut, Apologies To Queen Mary, surprised almost everyone as the “little anthemic rocker that could,” ending up on many critics’ “Best Of” lists and remaining in people’s heads and iPods until long after. Of course, the album was not without its faults: spotty sequencing, lack of overall direction — issues you’d expect from...Read...

SIFF 2010 The Rest of the Fest Film Recaps

And so another year’s Seattle International Film Festival comes to a close. You might be saying “Hey! You only watched like eight movies? What kind of publication is this?!” Tut tut, readers.  We here at Redefine watched a boat load of movies! We just couldn’t find the time/space/wherewithal to write about every single one. But...Read...

Get Low (2010) Film Review

Director: Aaron Schneider USA, 2009 Back when Saturday Night Live was still funny, Robert Duvall appeared in a sketch called “Who’s More Grizzled,” where contestants on a game show riff on subjects to show their grizzled-ness. Of course, Mr. Duvall won handily. No one does old and ornery better than Duvall. Get Low is his...Read...

Au Revoir Taipei (2010) Film Review

Director: Arvin Chen Taiwan, 2010 Taipei is a gorgeous city at night. Writer/Director Arvin Chen obviously knows this, and reveals this (poorly kept) secret to the world in his debut feature Au Revoir Taipei. This unrelentingly adorable film focuses on a single night in the titular city, following a young man named Kai (Jack Yao)...Read...

Thee Oh Sees – Warm Slime Album Review

Warm Slime is the latest nugget of psychedelic garage sludge from the Bay Area’s Thee Oh Sees. For years, this quartet of tripsters have been alchemically fusing ’60s pop, dirty Detroit-style rock, and homegrown Bay Area psych into a veritable witches’ brew of tunes. Their sound is a cross between Captain Beefheart’s early blues-infected fuzz-spazz...Read...

Teenage Fanclub – Shadows Album Review

What else is there left to be said about Teenage Fanclub? They’ve influenced more bands than a porcupine has spines. They’ve changed with the times, evolving past the era of grunge and alternative almost effortlessly. And they still can write some amazing pop songs, as evidenced by their 10th release in twenty years, Shadows. Shadows...Read...

Bodyguards and Assassins (2009) Film Review

Director: Teddy Chen Hong Kong, 2009 Bodyguards and Assassins is a long film. Too long. It’s about 45 minutes too long. It’s also overwrought. There’s a lot of grown men crying about pride and integrity. Things that matter to a lot of people, but not stuff we as the audience particularly care about. In the...Read...
