The Fast and the Furious franchise has been experiencing a bit of a rebirth since Fast & Furious was released in 2009. Directed by Justin Lin, Fast & Furious tied together to the first film of the franchise, The Fast and the Furious , and established a continuity for the next sequels to follow. 20112s Fast Five brought an injection to the franchise that Fast & Furious lacked, bringing in newcomer Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a formidable opposite to franchise star Vin Diesel. With a tighter narrative that slowly moved away from the street racing it was [...]

I met Joey this year at SXSW down in Austin, TX. Joey's personal style is definitely something that stands out at a quick glance. Ever since then, I’ve been keeping up with any new music he puts out.

I know we have some gamers reading Ruby Hornet, right? I'm super excited for the upcoming PlayStation 4, especially after Sony officially announced the console at a press conference back in February. However, questions arose when the console itself wasn't publicly revealed. It appears that Sony's ready to show off the new console on June 10th ahead of this year's E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo). In the teaser video below, Sony hints at what the console looks like, alerting fans to keep watch for the press conference. More information on the PlayStation 4 can be found here . [...]
In an attempt to appeal to younger generations, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer confirmed the purchase of blogging service Tumblr for a startling $1.1 billion. Tumblr, a site known for its assortment of GIF-heavy blog posts, is popular amongst younger crowds. Mayer wrote a Tumblr post herself, promising "not to screw it up." A good sign of Yahoo's promise is retaining Tumblr founder David Karp in the same role as CEO. Karp also assured no major changes would be made, stating, "Our team isn't changing. Our roadmap isn't changing. Tumblr gets better faster with more resources to draw from." [...]
As some of those familiar with my alter-ego know, I'm not a fan of horror movies at all . I get too anxious and nervous when facing suspense and gore. The first V/H/S , which you can catch on Netflix Instant, was a fan favorite in 2012 film festivals. The premise of the two films revolve around the discovery of VHS cassettes that depict ridiculously gruesome stuff. More importantly, each cassette serves as a short film/vignette directed by a large number of directors. Its sequel, V/H/S/2 (formerly known as S-VHS , but changed because not too [...]
It's been almost a decade since the last Chronicles of Riddick film (and five years since Vin Diesel has played a character not named Dom Toretto), but coming this fall, Diesel is set to don the goggles again with the third film in the franchise, Riddick . Written/directed by franchise director David Twohy, the film finds Riddick's power increasing and using them against bounty hunters sent to kill him. Unbeknownst to them, it's all part of the plan. After the success of Fast Five and a remarkable performance in Fast and Furious 6 (review's coming [...]
The film adaptation of Max Brooks' World War Z is shaping up to be a huge blockbuster for Paramount Pictures with a reported $125m-$200m budget. Starring Brad Pitt ( Moneyball ), the film follows Pitt's character across the United States as he attempts to find a way to stop the zombie outbreak, known colloquially as the titular "World War Z." However, based on previously-released trailers, it seems as if the Marc Forster ( Quantum of Solace )-directed film strays away from the book's tone. Of course, Hollywood never sleeps, as is proven by this latest bit of [...]
The schedule for this year's Lollapalooza is live! The popular festival, taking place August 2nd - 4th, has been growing steadily since it settled in Chicago a few years ago. Some highlights from this year's festival include Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, New Order, and Wavves. Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of music festivals; they're expensive, always outside and dirty, smell bad, consist of schedule conflicts, and full of drunk and/or high people. But hey, it's all for the love of music, right? You can check out the Lollapalooza 2013 Schedule in a PDF provided by [...]
Going to the theater is a great experience. Outside of the comfortability of watching movies on your couch in your pajamas, nothing can really beat going to a theater, watching a movie on the big screen, and being surrounded by large speakers that make you feel like you're actually in the scene. Theaters have always tried to better enhance the moviegoing experience for audiences, such as the implementation of D-Box seats which move and react to the scene on the screen, simulating explosions, car crashes, etc. Unfortunately, theaters haven't been able to find a way to complement the basic experience [...]
(Image by Know Passion ) The quartet of Elee X, Khalfani, Sidewalk Kal, and Blakkass Westley don't hold punches with their music. If you've seen them live, you're already aware of their gritty, in-your-face style. Their latest drop, "Look of Hate (Remix)," is actually a remixed version of the song they perform on stage. Produced by fellow Kimball House Production artist, Nunca Duerma, the song is kind of like an anthem about failed relationships and bad girlfriends. We've all been there, right? Check out the song below, as well as a statement written by Elee [...]

Arrested Development is one of my absolute favorite TV series. With its relentless stream of inside-jokes, witticisms, and cast whose talents are constantly matched AND one-upped with every scene, news of the show's unfair cancellation in 2006 was met with both anger and understanding. The combination of Fox's mishandling of the show by continuously shifting its time slot and the show's inherent necessity to watch each episode in order to understand the jokes and gags proved to be its downfall. However, after a seven year wait, the series is set to return, this time exclusively airing on [...]
Alfonso Cuaron is one of those directors who, I feel, hasn't really received the proper dues he should from audiences. Sure, Y Tu Mama Tambien won a handful of awards and nominated for an Oscar, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban pushed the Harry Potter film franchise towards a more mature vision (let alone a decidedly creative turn that sometimes clashed with the previous two films in the series), and Children of Men is arguably one of the most underrated sci-fi films to come out of the past decade. Still, Cuaron isn't as well-known as some [...]
Just when it was thought that the future of the Jurassic Park franchise was safe, we're reminded that nothing's ever really safe in Hollywood. The 3D re-release of Jurassic Park , which has made more than $53m worldwide, was intended to re-integrate the fantastical park that brought dinosaurs back to life into audiences' memories. However, it's been recently confirmed that production for the next proper entry into the franchise, the creatively-titled Jurassic Park 4 , has been halted. Colin Trevorrow ( Safety Not Guaranteed ) was set to take over the [...]
