REVIEWS

Motörhead. Kiss of Death. It's time to dust off the cowboy boots and iron cross belt buckle and cut a rug to the 19th album by the UK's original beer-drinkers and hell-raisers. Though markedly Motörhead, as per the abundance of ammunition adorning the cover to the plodding bass and bourbon-drenched vocals of front man Lemmy Kilmister, Kiss of Death is a pretty standard speed/thrash metal offering.

Putting Canada back on the television map

Tuesday evening saw the debut of CBC's latest prime time original broadcast, the brainchild of Chris Haddock, nationally revered creator of decade-spanning Canadian success Da Vinci's Inquest. His new series, Intelligence, examines a new facet of West Coast criminality, this time turning the camera towards the perpetrators rather than the victims and investigators.

FILM: LIttle trailer park called home

Canada's favourite foul-mouthed trio hit the big screen last Friday after an excruciatingly long period of anticipation for fanatical devotees. The film, surprisingly, did not disappoint. The "surprisingly" modifier is used hesitantly because, let's face it, 90-plus minutes of rampant alcoholism, recreational drug use, petty criminality and enough vulgarity to make Lenny Bruce blush has the potential to get old fast.

POP RHETORIC: I like it on top

Montreal is renowned for doing a lot of things very well - festivals, live music, smoked meat, poutine - but sometimes the things it does badly are overlooked. Specifically, pizza. There is no great pizza in Montreal. I know pizza isn't a Montreal specialty, like smoked meat, but one might expect at least a few places to sneak in and corner the market.

Studying and an urgent need to pick up dry-cleaning in time for Thanksgiving may have deterred many from attending this year's Future of Music Policy Summit, held for the first time away from its birthplace of Washington D.C., in McGill's own Schulich School of Music.

MUSIC: Sout (out out out out) like it’s a dance party

Well before Shout Out Out Out Out even stepped on stage Thursday night, their presence was felt among the crowd. Flocks of college kids gathered outside the venue and later filled the moderately sized La Tulipe to the brim. The level of excitement was palpable, setting the bar of expectation for the evening very high.

PERSPECTIVE: Clix This

There is an excellent, clever and effective commercial invading our airwaves, and it drives me freakin' crazy. Unilever, the maker of Axe deodorant spray, has hired ex-Newlywed Nick Lachey as their flirtatious, dimpled spokesman for its new fragrance, Clix.

POP RHETORIC: The movie is, like, always better than the book

I was making small talk with a co-worker this summer when my eyes latched on to the title on the spine of the book she was reading, Pride and Prejudice. "Oh yeah," she explained, "it's this movie with Keira Knightley, and it was pretty romantic so when I saw the book version I thought I'd check it out for summer.

Newest Sparks adaptation fails to ignite

Starring Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear, and Liam Hemsworth, The Last Song is a too heavy on subplots and a too light on actual content. The casting directors unearthed some hidden gems in supporting actors Bobby Coleman and Carly Chaikin. Coleman plays Cyrus' younger brother and warmed my cold black heart in ways that only a small child can, especially when sharing the screen with his terminally ill father (Kinnear).
