IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO TODAY…

We've previously done playlists at the end of the year celebrating our favourite tunes of the past 12 months but this time we've decided mid-year we'd go back a bit further. Just because time moves on doesn't mean music turns bad like a rotten apple....

UNSUNG HERO – JOE PANTOLIANO

Do you know when you are watching a movie and you get that feeling "I know that guy! I like that guy! But where the hell do I know him from?" Joe Pantoliano was very much that person for me, and I definitely should underline - I REALLY like this g...

TWIST & SHOUT (NO SPOILERS)

If you have not seen or read Gone Girl - get on it! David Fincher once again gets things so right, there are parts of it which could be improved but this dark thriller is edge-of-the-seat stuff, brilliant acting from the leads and supporting cast but

POP ICON: MUHAMMAD ALI

Well the world says goodbye to yet another icon, Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) - not only a great sporting icon but one of the greatest men that ever lived. In his own words to a press-packed boxing gym: "I'm young, I'm handsome, I'm fast, I'm pret...

STEVE COOGAN AND THE SCIENCE OF COMEDY

If you get chance to see any of the behind the scenes features on a Steve Coogan project then we strongly recommend it. There's some real precision in what he brings onto the screen. There's a real internal war going on on his head sometimes when he ...

GOODBYE TO THE 5 SYLLABLE RULE FOR KOL

#DidYouKnow that the titles for the first 6 studio albums released by Kings of Leon all had 5 syllables? Why this came to an end with WALLS in late 2016 I don't know. Maybe they hit a wall. You could argue they did in terms of the songwriting, but fu...

COMING UP IN 2016

A bit of a prediction for the forthcoming year with the much anticipated film Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice; it's going to be pants. I feel like all of the good work done by Christopher Nolan with the Batman series will come undone. To be ...

#PLAYLIST FOR 2015

We here at TheJournalix.com can't go a minute without playing our favourite songs, talking about the latest tune we've heard, sharing our newly discovered artist or re-discovering an album that just won't quit, and so it has come for us to write up o...

COPYCATS

Joni has asked me to write about the why's and where's of musical influence, particularly in artists I respect and love. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check this out: “You Would Never Exist Without Us…” Anyway, I think what he me...

#PLAYLIST FOR 2014

"And so, the time is near - and so I face the final curtain..." Yes 2014 is over, but just because it's long gone, it doesn't mean we forget about all the great things that happened? No, we're here to celebrate all of the great music that came...
