Chiller: The Complete Television Series

Yikes from the UK.


Television series

Rod Lott
While a bit too stiff-upper-lip for my tastes, Synapse Films’ release of the British TV series Chiller is welcomed nonetheless. Any release of a horror anthology is, especially one this little-seen.

The Inbetweeners Movie

Where's Clark Griswold when you need him?


Comedy

Rod Lott
Spun off from the hit British TV series that recently was remade poorly for MTV, The Inbetweeners Movie follows the original show’s core quartet of socially awkward lads on vacation — er, sorry: “on holiday.”

Dirty Red & the Soulshakers — Soul Shakin’


Rock

Louis Fowler
I know most purists would look middle-aged white guys playing soul music and immediately pass — I can’t count how many times I have — but damned if Dirty Red & the Soulshakers don’t rock the joint for all of its juke, lack of pigment notwithstanding.

Michael Summers — More


Jazz

Louis Fowler
This honky cat is really something else! Need proof? Just take a listen to his swingin’ version of the Elton John classic. Deep bass grooves, jaunty piano, smooth trumpet and sexy, crystalline vocals: This is the version to which all others now must live up.

Dewey Binns — High Character


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
A lot of hip-hop is pure escapism: fantasies about fast cars, attractive women and having more money than you know what to do with. High Character is not that; it’s about as real and down-to-earth as it gets, while still taking the time to appreciate the small things the world gives us.
