When Pharoahe Monch's sophomore album, "Desire," was released with a picture of Pharoahe bandaged up like a mummy on the cover, it was hard to figure out if he was joking or not. "OK, we get it. You're a mummy, like a pharaoh. Hey, look at that - as the CD booklet progresses, you're unraveling your bandages..."
Many old arcade fans fondly remember “The House of the Dead,” a series of light-gun games that had players shooting up zombies. It was so popular that it later inspired, of all things, a typing tutor, “The Typing of the Dead,” in which players used a keyboard instead of a light gun to kill zombies using the power of spelling and grammar. It was very tongue-in-cheek, combining the already faux-terrible acting of the series with the silliness of deadly words.
While some people might think that this film isn't worth watching from the previews because they've already seen this plot before, "We Own the Night" has plenty of surprises to offer those viewers who are willing to give it a chance. Not only are the story line and acting so great they need to be seen to be believed and appreciated, but the artistry of the film itself is also well worth the cost of admission.

Why listen to songs with intricate instrumentation and innovative song structuring when you can get simple melodic refrains and a singer's quirky French accent that prefers rhymes to not actually rhyme? Why listen to songs with deep meaningful lyrics when you can listen to songs about afternoon dance parties with girls from Texas or his girlfriend's bizarre phobias? So why not listen to Herman Dune? They're a duo out of France that play fun, loveable folk songs that are akin to the likes of Kimya Dawson or Jeffrey Lewis both of whom have been tour mates.
With the very cool idea behind the graphic novel "30 Days of Night" - vampires tramping up to Barrow, Alaska, for a monthlong feeding frenzy during winter's prolonged darkness - it was virtually assured that Hollywood would turn it into a movie. Yet while the flick is a huge cut above most of the gorefests passing themselves off as scary movies today, the premise and its repetitive gimmicks gradually grow as monotonous as, well, 30 days of night.

Every year the UAA music department and its students give the university a special symphony featuring every style of music from jazz to opera to hymnal chants. The 13th Symphony of Sounds, held recently last weekend, was a benchmark performance at UAA.

My fiance and I were browsing at Bosco’s in the Dimond Mall, and we overheard two male employees discussing Lara Croft’s redesigned look, which will debut in “Tomb Raider” March 5, 2013. I sensed they were both unhappy with the redesign, but I shrugged it off. A few minutes later, I glanced up at the TV and saw a game trailer.
It seems Spartans are getting all the glory these days. But as incredible as Frank Miller's "300" is, movies aren't an interactive format. Luckily, the gods created video games. Those intelligent enough to play the original "God of War" for the PS2 were treated to one of the greatest action games of all time.
Most truly successful and memorable romantic comedies have women as their protagonists and have therefore earned the name "chick flick" as a way for guys to avoid them. However, "Dan in Real Life" leaps upon the fact that men have romantic experiences and enjoy romantic comedies on occasion too by making the main character a man that everyone can relate to.
