Sitting pretty

Movie: Runaway Bride

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

***
Our Rating: 3.00 Julia Roberts isn't the kind of girl who commits herself to any old project. Already lighting up the multiplexes this summer in the reasonably charming Notting Hill, don't expect the superstar to ever stoop to a role that doesn't eventually allow her million-watt smile and all-American beauty...

Review - Shanti Project Collection

Artist: Various artists

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

After conversations with Mark Kozelek of Red House Painters about releasing some of the rare or demo versions of their songs, Badman's Dylan Magierek came up with an even better idea. What about releasing 12 new, rare or favorite tracks from Red House Painters, Low, Hayden, Misc and Idaho, and...

Review - Millennium

Artist: Monstrosity

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

Years ago, every rock in Florida had a death-metal band curled up underneath it. And most of them were fine examples of the genre. Not anymore. That's why "Millennium" (not to be in any way confused with another Florida band's world-wide pop smash CD) by veterans Monstrosity is such a...

Review - Avant Hard

Artist: Add N to (X)

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

With top-40 stars like Cher and Tina Turner using vocoders and Moogs, how can underground synth-based bands compete? Well, by getting hard. "Avant Hard," that is. British electro-noise band Add N to (X) brings on the art-school damage-rock on their latest CD, filling 56 minutes with harsh keyboards and frenzied...

Review - Gordon

Artist: Gordon

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

On its self-titled debut, Gordon captivates with psychedelic-pop music that invokes euphoria through abstract lyrics, beefy Hammond organ and atmospheric keyboards. The group's more obscure numbers drift off into opiated rhythms and beats that weave in and out of consciousness. The first single, "Fortified Grapes," kicks off the disc with...

Bloody, yes, but it bites

Movie: Deep Blue Sea

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

**1/2
Our Rating: 2.50 Samuel L. Jackson, as the buttoned-down money man responsible for funding the floating lab Aquatica, is fed up with the squabbling of fellow survivors of a frightening disaster at sea. It's about midway through underwater thriller "Deep Blue Sea" when he launches into a powerhouse let's-stick-together speech,...
