Over the years, despite having enormous respect for the band, I've not usually considered myself a big fan of MACHINE HEAD - more of a casual one. My favorite album by them is THE BURNING RED, which tends to get knocked as being a blight on their back catalogue - but it's the one I fall back on. Now, as their their new album CATHARSIS approaches, I've found myself revisiting their past works thanks to Spotify, and enjoying them more than ever, while at the same time loving each new track released from CATHARSIS. Now comes a new one, with "Kaleidoscope" taking things pretty literally on the visual front. Check it out below, and look for the new record on January 26th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

The original PARTY OF FIVE was a 90s staple of Fox - the tale of the Salinger siblings, a family dealing with the loss of their parents in a terrible car accident. When news hit my inbox that a reboot was coming, the immediate "HOW?" was answered with a timely, very Trump-era twist that is, as the saying goes, "ripped straight from the headlines." 

I am notoriously "anti-football." After enjoying the sport as a child, I completely lost interest in high school, and as an adult have come to largely despise the game and much of the culture that surrounds it. That said, I still find myself able to enjoy some football-based entertainment (movies like Wildcats, Necessary Roughness, Any Given Sunday), and now I'm intrigued by a documentary series that I had no idea was coming - despite my association with the Netflix Stream Team. Coach Snoop follows legendary rapper Snoop Dogg as he ventures outside the studio and onto the field as he coaches a team of teenagers in the Snoop Youth Football League. The eight-episode season offers an intimate look at Snoop and the players as they chase a championship and deal with adversity off the field. Check out the trailer below...

If it has "Star Wars" in the title, it's a safe bet that it's at the top of my personal "must-see" list, and that's certainly the case for SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, the latest of the "stand-alone" Star Wars films. While the toys have started to leak out there, not much else from Ron Howard's new film has been seen, but we do have an official synopsis now. Look for a full-length trailer coming soon...

Last summer, I found myself in a room full of Avengers (Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan) and a few Guardians of the Galaxy (Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff), too. At Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, I was one of the lucky few (thousand) that got to see a first-look trailer for Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War. Ever since, that film has been near the top of my "must-see" list for 2018, and here we have its entry into the 2018 motion picture preview...
