XXX – Review

April 18, 2003

While he might come across as somewhat less intellectual than, say, Sylvester Stallone, Vin Diesel does have the charisma necessary to make this flow.

Rather Good – Review

April 18, 2003

Recommended if you find clip art superimposed on out-of-context stuff funny, and like to almost pee yourself laughing at stuff that makes absolutely no sense.

Signs – Review

April 18, 2003

Signs is about an alien invasion, but there are very few aliens. Like the classic Night of the Living Dead, we get a film about people in a bad situation.

Secret Weapons of Kung Fu – Review

April 18, 2003

a DVD sampler of a variety of videos by bands on Kung Fu: Audio Karate, The Ataris, No Use For A Name, Ozma, The Vandals, Antifreeze, Assorted Jelly Beans, Mi6, and Useless I.D..

Priceless – Review

April 18, 2003

People do the stupidest things, and here are sites featuring submitted photos of people doing them.

Pickle Party – Review

April 18, 2003

Most e-cards (online postcards) are sappy and irritating. So when one goes to Pickle Party and sees one titled “You’re Gay and We Know It,” well…

Underground Station – Column

April 18, 2003

Ever since Robert Crumb and Justin Green, there’s been a glut of young artists sure that we want to read their personal anecdotes of growth. Summer Blonde captures issues #5 through #8 of Adrian Tomine’s personal comic, Optic Nerve, and looks to be a blockbuster.

Anna Vissi – X – Review

April 18, 2003

While Everything I Am, was all about dance and sounding modern, X has her blending modern beats with classic Greek music with mostly pleasing results.

Jane Birkin – Arabesque – Review

April 18, 2003

Jane Birkin re-visits the material of her late beau, Serge Gainsbourg. Most of the set consists of songs he wrote and produced for her in the ’70s and ’80s.

Jenifer – Review

April 18, 2003

The self-titled debut by France’s Jenifer has made her an overnight pop sensation, selling out concerts all over the country. Not to mention a lot of CDs.

Paola & Chiara – Festival – Review

April 18, 2003

The fourth album by Italy’s Paola & Chiara is a fantastic celebration of life, love, and genres of music you wouldn’t expect to find on the same album.

Import Zone – Column

April 18, 2003

Festival is the fourth album by Italy’s Paola & Chiara and it’s a fantastic celebration of life, love, and various genres of music you probably wouldn’t expect to find on the same album.

Wild Arms 3 – Review

April 18, 2003

Four strangers confront each other on a train and draw guns on each other in a John Woo style stalemate. Freezeframe, and pick whose shoes you want to walk in.

War of the Monsters – Review

April 18, 2003

Giant monsters kicking the crap out of everything around them? This is a concept I’ll never get tired of. Who wouldn’t want to become a giant eyeball of doom?

Jet X20 – Review

April 18, 2003

A pretty but depressingly standard-issue extreme racing game based on the occasionally exciting, but rarely innovative extreme sports racing formula.

ATV Off-Road Fury 2- Review

April 18, 2003

The major point of the game is to race. But you’re also trying to perform outlandish stunts whenever you hit big air, and the two don’t combine well.
