"...After the premiere of Bandslam tomorrow night at the Galaxy Highland 10, something’s going to change for the Daze. It’s not just the killer, once-in-a-lifetime chance to dazzle a national audience onscreen – the Austin teens are following their cinematic good fortune with a CD release..."
"...The Skulls appears to have borrowed the crux of its story from twice-told tales of Yale University's semi-secret Skull and Bones Society, which, if the rumors are true, has molded several centuries of young men and provided lifelong networking opportunities for such Yalies as former President George Bush and assorted shadowy government and business figures. Doonesbury's Garry Trudeau made light of Bush's super-secret, no-girls-allowed Skull and Bones background a decade or so ago, and seeing Rob Cohen's attempt to expand on the whole secret society schtick only makes me long for the daze of Zonker..."
"...It has the sexy, histrionic vibe of those old Republic serials updated for the Nineties, and would make a terrific double bill with Disney's vastly underrated The Rocketeer. Both films gaze back longingly to the daze of classic Hollywood heroics, and even Errol Flynn would have to admit that Banderas cuts a dashing figure as the revamped Zorro..."
"...Starring: Ben Affleck, Sam Rockwell, Megan Ward, French Stewart, Vien Hong, Vinnie De Ramus and Alyssa Milano. From the pen of Rich Wilkes, whose less-than-illustrious screenwriting career has thus far given us such execrable comedies as Airheads, Billy Madison, and The Jerky Boys, comes the equally insipid Glory Daze, a loving, if not particularly funny, tribute to the slob-comedies of the Eighties, or, in other words, it's an Animal House wannabe with a condescending Gen-X slant..."
"...AV: I'd rather have Barrio Daze's Latino political candidate Manuel Gonzalez Jr. as President..."
"...The time-worn formula of the underdog surpassing all odds meets a premise reeking of cultural imperialism that takes basketball mania a bit too far. A self-assured, fast-talking coach at a Catholic college named Jimmy Dolan (Bacon) blows a major recruiting deal, only to discover -- in a wine-fueled daze at a faculty dinner -- a glimmer of a new prospect (Maina) who just happens to be depicted playing a mean game of B-ball in a shot from a film concerning the college's latest missionary efforts with the Winabe tribe in Africa..."
"...Contrary to Mel Brooks' dictum, it's not always so good to be the king. Whaley's directorial debut may be the feel-bad movie of the year, a take-no-prisoners journey back to the bad old daze of mid-Seventies upstate New York, where 14-year-old Joe Henry (Fleiss) sad-sacks his way through a daily grind that includes the occasional noncommittal beating from his drunken dad and constant taunting from his peers at school..."
"...She fights for her dreams, even when the outlook may seem bleak, which is how she proposes that Juan Raul pose as her husband in order to increase her chances for American sponsorship. Juan Raul is in a daze, in between the realities of his 20-year confinement and the search for his wife and daughter..."
"...While flying to New York for the wedding, he also threatens to rekindle a long-dormant romance with the one who got away, Jordan (Long), now an associate producer at BET. Complications arise, of course, as Harper tries to juggle Jordan and the soon-to-arrive Robin, while simultaneously working to keep Lance from discovering the school-daze tryst..."
"...4. "Everywhere" Teen Daze..."
"...“Send Judas Down” and “The Last Judgement,” a reclaimed Trouble cut, worked up both the energy level and the sparse crowd. Another Troublemaker, “End of My Daze,” raised metaphorical lighters high...."
"...If anything, Barat’s swaggering stage presence now comes off dirtier and prettier. Opening anthem “Glory Days,” off new LP Let It Reign, oozed saucy, salacious remorse without shedding a tear for the Doherty daze, while flammable favorite “Victory Gin” had Barat screaming, “I am not afraid of anyone; I defy anyone to tell me that I’m wrong!”..."
"...The most dominating piece is a giant projection of what is defined as "bitrot." A grotesque deterioration of pixels, the nearly 20-minute video shows a girl group's performance morphing into a horrifying prism of body parts. This shit is daze-y, at once entrancing and sinister..."
"...Listen, my children, and you shall hear of those glorious daze of yore when Alvin Crow & the Pleasant Valley Boys were kings of the scene in the 1970s. Any night Alvin laid his horsehair bow to catgut strings was a good night but there was something about his brand of country that skirted the progressive tag while still being as subversive as it could..."
"...A couple thousand SXSW’ers defied the Daylight Saving daze this morning to hear New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet defend his paper’s coverage of Donald Trump and define responsible journalism as “the honorable pursuit of the truth.”..."
"...That was my first thought. I used to, as a kid, strain my eyes into delirium – way past gazing, even beyond that transcendental daze achieved by a really good stare – until I could readjust the scale of whatever I was looking at, and then I would place a massive, imagined dinosaur beside pine trees or stepping over a store..."
"...(With a horrible scream, Futrell's spirit returns to the Tobynomicon; Shade returns to consciousness. Council is in a daze, unbelieving what they just witnessed.)..."
