Flashback: Metallica and Ja Rule Embark on a Rap-Rock Collab

Flashback: Metallica and Ja Rule Embark on a Rap-Rock Collab
The Judgment Night soundtrack, a 1993 experiment teaming rappers and rock bands, turned 25 last week, and we celebrated with an oral history featuring many of its many key players

In one of the soundtrack’s more interesting coulda-beens, executive producer Happy Walters told us that he was rejected by Metallica, whose most recent album, 1991’s Metallica, was already certified six times platinum by the beginning of 1993.

“See, in those days they were like the shit, the shit, right?” said Walters. “They’ve obviously aged, and probably wish they would’ve done it.

Oral History of the ‘Judgment Night’ Soundtrack: 1993’s Rap-Rock Utopia

Oral History of the ‘Judgment Night’ Soundtrack: 1993’s Rap-Rock Utopia
The soundtrack to 1993 chase flick Judgment Night — on which 10 rap artists collaborated with 11 rock groups — was a gold-certified triumph of the post-Nirvana major label wild west. Dropped shortly after Lollapalooza wound down its third summer, here was a similarly divide-breaking gathering of genre-crossing cool: Cypress Hill spitting hard bars over a slinky Pearl Jam groove and dank Sonic Youth noise, Mudhoney and Sir Mix-a-Lot sharing a dirty Seattle scumbag sesh, Helmet’s taut riffs slowing down for steely-eyed House of Pain verses, Teenage Fanclub bummer jangle matching with De La Soul’s reflective rhymes.

This Crazy Riverdale Theory Could Explain the Multiple Black Hood Situation

Riverdale unveiled a few big twists during the episode "Judgment Night," but none were quite as dramatic as the Black Hood reveal. As fans guessed, Betty's dad Hal Cooper ends up being the masked villain, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Apparently, being a serial killer runs in his blood. As he reveals to Betty and Alice, it was actually Grandpappy Cooper who killed Grandpappy Blossom, and his father was responsible for the Conway family murder. As a young boy, he was brainwashed to believe that Riverdale needed to be cleansed of sinners, and those thoughts were triggered during Betty's speech at the Riverdale Jubilee.

Even though he is eventually held accountable for his crimes at the end of the episode, it doesn't seem like we're quite done with his story. As Hal is arrested by the police, Archie arrives at the Coopers' house and tells Betty

Riverdale Finally Reveals Who the Black Hood Is, but There's Another Twist

Spoilers for Riverdale below!

Riverdale loves to keep fans guessing, and the mystery surrounding the Black Hood this season is no different. After fans came up with elaborate and convincing theories about who the killer could be, the reveal during the season two Winter finale was kind of a letdown. As Betty and Archie hold the serial killer at gunpoint, he is shot by Sheriff Keller on the other side of the bridge. The killer dramatically falls to the ground, and Kevin's dad confirms that he's dead. Then, Archie whips off the mask to reveal that the Black Hood is . . . high school janitor Mr. Svenson. But as fans guessed, the reveal was actually a fake-out.

During the show's musical episode, the mysterious season two villain makes a shocking return. As the high school puts on a production of Carrie: The Musical, Kevin is blackmailed with letters telling him to recast

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 21 Review – ‘Judgment Night’

Liam Hoofe reviews the penultimate episode of Riverdale season 2…

‘Are you and Daddy trying to turn Riverdale into Gotham City?’ Veronica Lodge asks her parents after discovering that they have put a bounty on the head of The Black Hood. Frankly, Veronica, not even Batman would have been able to cope with the carnage unravelling in the latest episode of Riverdale.

Riverdale appears to have taken a leaf out of Game of Thrones‘ playbook here, with the show’s penultimate episode turning the town into a battleground, dropping several major reveals along the way.

The best starting point, I guess, is the beginning, which provided us with perhaps my favourite TV moment of 2018. The episode picked up at the exact moment the previous one ended – with Cheryl Blossom screaming as The Black Hood stood on her doorstep. Cheryl instantly ran upstairs as The Black Hood chased her with an axe,

Drive-In Dust Offs: Hunter’S Blood (1986)

In the grand tradition of Deliverance (1972), Rituals (‘77), and Up the Creek (1984) comes Hunter’s Blood (’86), a backwoods hicksploitation actioner that more than gets by with a cast handpicked by the B movie gods and a script wittier than it has to be. Who says the outdoors hold no charm? (Well, normally that would be me.)

Based on the novel by Jere Cunningham (who later wrote the story for Judgment Night, which is just the urban version of the same tale), Hunter’s Blood was released by Palace Pictures in the U.K. in September, and picked up by Roger Corman’s Concorde Pictures for release stateside in January of ’87, where soon after it was destined to languish on home video shelves, with store clerks puzzled as to where it should be stocked. (By the by, I always saw it in the Horror section, where I think it rightfully belonged.) Hard

Flamin' Hot Cheetos Creator Is Getting a Biopic

Fox Searchlight has emerged victorious in a bidding war for a tasty new biopic, centering on the man who created the Flamin' Hot Cheetos, Richard Montanez. The studio reportedly beat out multiple studio bidders for the project in what was described as a "highly-competitive sale." While no director is attached at this time, Lewis Collick has been set to write the script, based on the pitch he developed with producer DeVon Franklin and Montanez.

Richard Montanez was born the son of an immigrant who grew up as a migrant farm worker in the grape fields of Southern California. He ended up getting a job as a janitor at the Frito-Lay plant in Rancho Cucamonga in 1976, after dropping out of high school. One day he watched a video from the Frito-Lay president that asked Montanez and all his fellow employees to, "act like an owner," which he saw as an opportunity to do something different.

‘Parasites’ Looks Like John Carpenter’s ‘Judgment Night’

A very impressive trailer (and poster, may I add) has come across my inbox this morning. It’s for a film called Parasites and it hits all my sweet spots. I think it will hit yours as well. It had it’s World Premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival this year and will be hitting VOD outlets in January. Check out the trailer and the poster below. Also, if you’re not a fan of Judgment Night, get lost.

Synopsis

The industrial barbarianism of downtown Los Angeles is equal parts player and punisher in this survive-at-all-costs tale of a group of friends who get lost in the seedy streets where they encounter a crazed gang of homeless derelicts that captures and maims them one-by-one. One lucky man escapes on foot, naked and unarmed, with a pack of depraved transients in pursuit, staying only seconds ahead. Clinging to sanity and reduced to helpless prey,

Why I Watch The Ref Every Christmas Eve

Why I Watch The Ref Every Christmas Eve
Every family has their tradition when it comes to the holidays. Ever since I was a kid, we would celebrate with my father's side of the family on Christmas Eve, and then with my mother's side on Christmas Day, a tradition that has remained unchanged to this day. There is one tradition that we added on Christmas Eve night, maybe a decade or so ago, after my younger twin brothers and I would come back to my mom's house after spending the day with our father. We would watch the obscure 1994 R-rated Christmas comedy The Ref. Not It's A Wonderful Life or A Christmas Story or A Miracle of 41st Street, but an underrated and underseen comedy starring Denis Leary, post-Remote Control, Kevin Spacey, pre-Oscar win and Judy Davis, post-Oscar nomination. While The Ref may not be as revered as those aforementioned movies, I will always watch The Ref every Christmas Eve,

Deadly Pleasures: Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive

  • DailyDead
Let me start off by saying this: I am keenly aware that Maximum Overdrive is not a very good movie at all. In fact, it's a downright terrible movie if you take into consideration its various plot holes and nonsensical conditions established in the film coupled with some very awkward performances and characters that couldn’t be more stereotypical if they tried.

But, for me, what ultimately saves Maximum Overdrive from itself is the fact that at the end of the day, the story as a concept is ridiculous fun, the action is over-the-top crazy with tons of destruction and explosions, and it just seems like director Stephen King had a helluva lot of fun making it (he has since admitted to being under the influence of drugs throughout production, which explains a lot). Despite its imperfections, I still adore this deeply flawed film and you have to admit, there

Stephan James Goes For Gold In First Trailer For Olympic Biopic Race

Long before Star Wars: The Force Awakens loomed over Hollywood, snatching some of the finest actors, crew members and director in town, John Boyega had been attached to topline Stephen HopkinsRace, a track and field biopic designed to shine a light on legendary athlete Jesse Owens. But when Disney and LucasFilm came calling, the actor simply couldn’t say no, leaving the role of Owens free for up-and-comer Stephan James (Selma) to pick up the proverbial baton.

Penned by Frankie and Alice scribes Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel, Focus FeaturesRace is to be directed by Stephen Hopkins, marking the filmmaker’s first foray behind the lens in almost half a decade. Best known for his work on Predator 2, Judgment Night and family sci-fi romp Lost in Space, Hopkins’ latest venture is a significant departure from the norm, and it could be the first project in a

What kind of star will Jack O'Connell become?

  • Hitfix
What kind of star will Jack O'Connell become?
In the space of a week I've finally caught up to David Mackenzie's "Starred Up," which premiered at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival and made its way to theaters and VOD via Tribeca Film last weekend, and Yann Demange's "'71," which premiered at the Berlinale in February and finally resurfaced again in Telluride last week. The common denominator is actor Jack O'Connell, and with his major break-out project "Unbroken" set for release this December, the question becomes clear: what trajectory will this promising new career take? The entertainment industry is always on the lookout for the next big thing. Actors like Sam Worthington, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Russell Crowe, Eric Bana and Tom Hardy have found themselves at this crossroads in the past (funny they always seem to be imports), boasting a few strong foreign indies and a huge Hollywood production on the horizon meant to send a career soaring.
