In the spirit of 007

Movie: Entrapment

Posted on Fri, Apr 30, 1999 at 4:00 AM

***
Our Rating: 3.00 What if James Bond reached retirement age with Her Majesty's Secret Service and found himself facing a pension with no license to kill? Could he content himself with golf and coupon clipping? Or, with his years of derring-do and spy skills, might he be happier as, say,...

Movie: Idle Hands

Posted on Fri, Apr 30, 1999 at 4:00 AM

**
Our Rating: 2.00 Don't give Satan all the credit for the devilry wrought by the title appendages in "Idle Hands," a bloody horror-comedy from the same genius who brought us "Leprechaun 2." Place the blame on the shoulders of Rodman Flender, the director of that latter classic, and rookie screenwriters...

Movie: Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation

Posted on Fri, Apr 30, 1999 at 4:00 AM

Our Rating: 0.00 Long regarded as the Cannes of the cartoon set, "Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation" has in recent years become something closer to its ShoWest. Having introduced the world to Beavis and Butt-head, Ren and Stimpy and the "South Park" kids, the festival has...

Review - Breathing Tornados

Artist: Ben Lee

Posted on Wed, Apr 28, 1999 at 4:00 AM

From his early days with Noise Addict to "Breathing Tornados," the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 1997 solo debut, "Something to Remember Me By," it's clear that Ben Lee is strengthening his complex, acoustically driven songwriting. His lyrical snippets of daily life melodically linger enough to conjure comparisons to luminaries...

Review - Monster Wave ... 100 Feet High!

Artist: The Tarantulas

Posted on Wed, Apr 28, 1999 at 4:00 AM

From the first note, local band The Tarantulas' instrumental surf-rock disc, "Monster Wave ... 100 Feet High!", catapults the listener into the heady world of "Pulp Fiction," swingin' '60s beach-party freak-outs and macho biker/cowboy fantasies. For some, the territory that's been mined so well by Dick Dale, the Ventures and...

Review - Dead Bees on a Cake

Artist: David Sylvian

Posted on Wed, Apr 28, 1999 at 4:00 AM

From his dressed-up start as leader of the underappreciated New Romantic prototype band Japan at the turn of the '80s, through dabblings with various artists, including pomo composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, art rocker David Sylvian has remained an esteemed, if unnoticed, songsmith to a fickle generation. Brooding, and sometimes unrepentantly boring,...
