Unsung Heroes of Hollywood: The Films of John Wayne

Unsung Heroes of Hollywood: The Films of John Wayne

Each month I’m going to take a look at an actor, actress, or filmmaker that I grew up loving and has informed my own career (if calling what I do in the industry qualifies as such) in writing or performing. Films are supposed to be fun, entertaining ventures that allow an escape from the day-to-day […]

STREETS OF FIRE: A Review of Shout! Factory’s Rock & Roll Fable On Blu-ray!

STREETS OF FIRE: A Review of Shout! Factory’s Rock & Roll Fable On Blu-ray!

The 1980’s were a fantastic time, and although I may not have had a chance to experience the neon decade myself, a look back at 80’s cinema can tell you that. The risks taken by studios just 30 years ago were incredible. Film wasn’t oversaturated by comic book adaptations, remakes, and repeat stories that were […]

Minds of Monsters: A Look Inside Twiztid’s Psychomania Tour

Minds of Monsters: A Look Inside Twiztid’s Psychomania Tour

In October of 2003, Paradox Development released a terrible “wrestling” game titled ‘Backyard Wrestling.’ At the time this game was fantastic, but I was 11 and didn’t know any better. Little did I know that this game would honestly change my life forever. The entire promotion for the game was built around the inclusion of the […]

Around the World and Back: State Champs at Baltimore Soundstage

Around the World and Back: State Champs at Baltimore Soundstage

There was no mistaking that when I arrived at Baltimore Soundstage on Sunday, May 7th, I was completely out of my element. I walked up sporting my Brandon Carlisle (RIP) Teenage Bottlerocket t-shirt and felt completely judged by the countless high school children that lined the outside of the venue. This was a fantastic feeling…I […]

You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll: A First-Timer’s Look At The M3 Rock Festival

You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll: A First-Timer’s Look At The M3 Rock Festival

It’s no secret that I’m the youngin’ here at Icon Vs. Icon. At 25 years old, I was a baby when grunge came onto the scene and I wasn’t even thought of when most of the bands that play Maryland’s annual M3 Rock Festival were kicking ass on their original run. I’m much more of a […]

Films are supposed to be fun, entertaining ventures allowing an escape from mundane day-to-day happenings. Why not celebrate the uncelebrated, […]

Released on May 24th, 1995, Tales from the Hood is an urban horror film that plays out in the vein of British anthology films such as “Tales from the Crypt” (hence the name). It starred […]

Concert Review: Bowling For Soup Take Baltimore Soundstage By Storm!

Concert Review: Bowling For Soup Take Baltimore Soundstage By Storm!

“I swear, I did not eat the singer of Bowling for Soup”. This is the quote that pretty much sums up the night of April 4th, 2017 … and I mean that in the GREATEST WAY POSSIBLE! I’ve been a Bowling For Soup fan for as long as I can remember. While they reached their […]

Horror On Blu-ray: ‘Deadtime Stories’ — The Perfect Sleep Aid

Horror On Blu-ray: ‘Deadtime Stories’ — The Perfect Sleep Aid

Listen, it’s hard to be taken seriously in the horror community when you’re a “youngin’”. Having been born in 1992 I missed out on some of the more obscure titles of the 80’s and before. Thankfully we’ve reached a point where everyone and their mother has a distribution company, and we’re getting fantastic releases of […]
