Die Antwoord Drop Insane Video For “Ugly Boy”

Hot on the heels of their appearance in the new trailer for Chappie, Die Antwoord have delivered a crazy visual for their single “Ugly Boy” that you’ll be unable to shake.

You never know what to expect when Die Antwoord decide to release a new music video, but you can almost always bet the visuals will be unlike anything you have ever seen. This has been the case with every clip the duo has released to date, and I’ll be the first to tell you “Ugly Boy” is no different. The song is essentially four or five separate performance …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Sex Tape’

Film: Sex Tape
Starring: Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel
Directed by: Jake Kasdan

From beginning to end, Sex Tape feels like a film that arrived in theaters a decade too late. There is not a single frame that is in any way sexy or sensual, and very few offer any substantial laughs. There is a sex scene or two, sure, but they’re handled so poorly (like much of the film) that all humor and romance is completely sucked out of the scene, leaving a slew of well known Hollywood talent looking like people who foolishly signed on to create an absolute …

Watch Jack Black and the ‘School of Rock’ Cast Perform Again 10 Years Later

10 years ago, one of my all-time favorite movies came out: School of Rock. It’s one of those movies that cracks me up and keeps me tuned in thanks to a good soundtrack and a light attitude. It turns out last night in Austin, TX, the crew gathered at a reunion event to catch up and, yes, perform again.
