Kansas City tries to keep up with Childish Gambino’s lyrical tornado

Alright, multi-instrumentalist Ray Suen. It’s official. I’m jealous of you. First you got to perform as part of The Killers’ band and now you’re touring for Childish Gambino. One person should not be allowed to have that much awesome to himself. It’s not fair! But despite all my envy, I’m also really impressed. You see, The Killers, as an alternative rock group, do not really have anything in common with a rap/hip hop artist, but just by your presence, you’re a reminder that Childish Gambino is not your normal rap/hip hop act. It’s because of Childish Gambino’s unusualness that this indie rock fan found herself at a concert a little outside of my usual genre…and Childish Gambino’s sold out Beaumont Club show was worth stepping outside of my box.

Generally, video games turned into film adaptations tend not to work that well, but we really enjoyed the first “Silent Hill” movie and have high hopes for the sequel…especially since it stars our beloved Jon Snow…err Kit Harrington. Plus, the trailer for “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D” looks pretty awesome. Check it out below.

Making a movie with a wide variety of personalities can be a dangerous proposition. If it works out, you could have something like “Ocean’s Eleven” where the pieces are all complimentary. If it doesn’t, you could have something like “Grown Ups” where all of the actors step on each other’s toes. Thankfully, “The Watch” pulls off a good balance.
