How do you make killing Nazi zombies this dull?

Film Review  November 9, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...Overlord takes its name from the real Operation Overlord, the code name for the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe on June 6, 1944. However, this takes place in a parallel conflict, where the Nazis have uncovered the secret to creating undead super soldiers, and the U.S..."

Make Your Mama Proud
Profile of local rapper MC Overlord.
Music Story  September 3, 1999, by Andy Langer
"...That day, her youngest son called from Austin to say he was going to pursue a career as a rapper rather than a degree from the University of Texas. That was also the day Mercedes Robinson stopped paying her son's bills. "It was the hardest phone call I've ever had to make," relates Robinson, better known to local audiences as MC Overlord..."

Film Review  August 18, 2017, by Marc Savlov
"...During a night out on the town with his wife and best friend, the sozzled Jacob blows through a red light, which results in the death of his buddy and some serious DUI charges that land him in the pen. Once inside, he’s challenged by a black inmate immediately, fights back, and is slowly but surely groomed by resident overlord The Beast (McCallany, of Fight Club) to become a key player in the Aryan Nation..."

We Are X
Japanese rockers are the best band you've never heard of

Film Review  October 28, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...Kijak’s film cements the band’s global reach within the visually dynamic, kabuki-esque tradition of kei, and X’s legendary status is confirmed by Western fanatics ranging from Marilyn Manson to Marvel Comics overlord Stan Lee(!). The whole ongoing story of X plays like an epic saga of demise and rebirth, a karmic wheel of fortune that continues to this day..."

13 Assassins
The prolific Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike takes a turn toward the truly epic with this classically styled samurai picture.

Film Review  April 29, 2011, by Marc Savlov
"...In the Seven Samurai-esque story, noble samurai warrior Shinzaemon Shimada (Yakusho) is selected by the shogunate to assemble the titular team of elite swordsmen. Their mission, bloody though it will surely be, is ultimately one of peace: They are to kill renegade Naritsugu Matsudaira (Inagaki), a sadistic Edo overlord who threatens the peace and has lately taken to gleefully hacking the peasants to pieces..."

Film Review  May 29, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...When a necessary plot contrivance calls him back to his former post, he discovers his old friends – among them Teddy Roosevelt (Williams), cowboy Jed (Wilson), and Roman ruler Octavius (Coogan) – threatened by an imminent change of venue and an accompanying loss of nightlife. Enter Azaria's sinister Egyptian overlord, Kahmunrah, who schemes to rule the world via the first film's life-bestowing tablet..."

Film Review  July 12, 2002, by Kimberley Jones
"...That gunshot to the head in the last moments of Sam Mendes' American Beauty was something of a portent; his follow-up, The Road to Perdition, is a death binge, with a new bullet to the brain clocking in every five minutes or so. But how else could it be in a revenge saga set in Capone's Chicago, circa 1931? The mafia is never explicitly mentioned here, but introduce a couple of Tommy guns and an avuncular Irish overlord like John Rooney (Paul Newman), and it's clear these men are married to the mob..."

In Too Deep
… or perhaps not deep enough. Either way, this undercover cop saga by Aussie director Rymer (Angel Baby) comes off as a simplistic morality tale rife with moments requiring forehead-slapping...

Film Review  August 27, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...Once the mental processes of Detective Cole become enmeshed in the perpetual strain of maintaining his false identity, though, the plot backpedals into a continuing series of “What the hell?!” situations and one very tired romance (with Long, as an artist's model whom Cole meets while taking a department-mandated breather). LL Cool J, as the psychotic drug overlord (and really, there's got to be some other kind) is the most invigorating thing on the screen: He moves his beefy, muscular bulk from scene to scene with the calm, predatory self-awareness of a panther, and when his eager, too-friendly eyes light on a victim, he's more of a threat than anything else in the film..."

Bride of Chucky
No matter that Brad Dourif snagged an Academy Award nomination for his work in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest -- for legions of moviegoers, he'll always be best remembered...

Film Review  October 23, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...From here, Bride of Chucky morphs into a Barbie and Clyde road movie as the pair hijack a couple of young newlyweds (Heigl and Stabile) and make their way to Hackensack, NJ to retrieve Chucky's decade-old corpse. It may not be the most original horror film of the last five years, but it's certainly close, thanks in equal parts to Yu's dazzling imagery and series overlord Don Mancini's witty, pithy script..."

The State of Austin's Hip-Hop Scene
Music Story  July 4, 1997, by Andy Langer

Slow, Stoned, Rugged: A tribute to Austin's original cosmic soulman Rusty Wier
Music Column  October 16, 2009, by Austin Powell
"...Without a bang or whimper, MC Overlord quietly retired from the Austin rap game last week, dropping off the bill for what was to be his final show, Save KUT's Twang Dang Doodle on Sunday, due to scheduling conflicts. Considering D-Madness' recent departure and the imminent exodus of colleague and standard-bearer Bavu Blakes, the move signifies a larger end of an era for local hip-hop..."
