Movie Review: The Wolverine (2013)

Armed with Claws and Cause The Wolverine does not disappoint

Every superhero has a storyline or era that most readers agree is the best period in their history. For Spiderman, it’s the Kraven series and anything involving Venom. Daredevil has the Elektra and Bullseye saga. For the X-Men’s most feral member [besides Beast], it might be his time in Japan and his battles with the ninja. The trailer shows Wolverine going head to head and a glimpse of a giant metal samurai. The story looks to be centered on Wolverine losing his healing abilities and living life as a regular mortal. That would normally be enough to sell us, but there’s that lingering taste left over from his first outing; X-Men Origins Wolverine (2009). So can we finally get the Wolverine movie we’ve been waiting for? In a simple word, yes.

Is Kanye’s Verse Really the Best Ever?

KanyeWestBlackSkinheadRD

Ever been to a party or a live show where the DJ cuts the music off and everyone in attendance continues to recite a whole verse to a song?  That’s how you know a song is a classic or on its way to becoming one. Kanye West is hands down the best producer to ever step in the recording booth.  He recently said on Twitter that the second verse from his “New Slaves” song is the best “OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF RAP MUSIC, PERIOD”.  What do you think?
