Kanye West — Yeezus

The skills match the ego.


Hip Hop/Rap

Zach Hale
Try as you might, but there’s no escaping Kanye West. Turn on the TV, radio, computer — hell, take a stroll downtown and you might see his mug projected on the side of a building. It’s an undeniable fact of life in 2013: Kanye West is bigger than Buddha, Krishna and The Beatles (today, anyway) and he’ll be the first to let you know about it.

Takeoff Eyeslow — The Prescription


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler

A Million Ways to Die in the West

The new comedy from Seth MacFarlane manages to tire despite exerting minimal effort.


Comedy

Zach Hale
There’s a moment toward the climax of A Million Ways to Die in the West that finds Seth MacFarlane — the film’s director, co-writer and lead actor — hiding among a sea of sheep. As he lays in the dirt, he looks up, and a male member of the herd proceeds to urinate on his face. This particular gag is, for lack of a better phrase, the entire movie in a nutshell.
