Film Review: “10 Cloverfield Lane”

When it was announced in January that something called “10 Cloverfield Lane” would be hitting theaters in March, the Internet went crazy about the prospect of a sequel to “Cloverfield,” the 2008 found-footage monster film. While this new film, directed by Dan Trachtenberg, bears no real connections to the 2008 film, it still stands on its own as an incredible sci-fi thriller. Mary Elizabeth Winstead delivers a stellar performance as the story’s protagonist, and John Goodman knocks it out of the park as Howard, a man whose actions will keep you tense at the edge of your seat for the entire film.

Album Review: “Painkillers” by Brian Fallon

After serving as frontman for New Jersey punk rockers The Gaslight Anthem for the past eight years, Brian Fallon has finally branched out for a solo career. His debut album, “Painkillers,” features 12 strong songs that evoke the same feelings as artists like Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty do. Fallon’s vocals and instrumentation sound as good as ever, thanks to help from producer Butch Walker. Like his heroes, Fallon waxes poetic lyrics that tell immersive and accessible stories. It’s easy to relate when listening to “A Wonderful Life” and hearing the simple confession, I don’t wanna survive, I want a wonderful life.”
