Third Eye Blind - Screamer Music Album Reviews

Third Eye Blind - Screamer Music Album Reviews On the band’s sixth album, frontman Stephan Jenkins Peter Pans his way through an improbably infectious set of would-be hits.
If he had less ambition and a lower tolerance for failure, Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins could be sipping Mai Tais with Mark McGrath on the deck of a ’90s rock cruise right now, enjoying a life of royalty checks and low expectations. Instead, he’s carried on as if any year might be the one where his group finally reclaims its former glory. Everything he does is a long-shot bid for relevance: He covers Bon Iver, records bold political statements, and generally does the last thing we ask from the second-tier figures of alt-rock’s yesteryear: He tries.

Low Tide Movie Review

Tidy

When I see a film at a festival, sometimes I think, ‘This one's going to find an audience,’ or ‘That one is better off sealed and buried.’ Kevin McMullin's "Low Tide" was one that I assumed would find its way to a general audience. It was one of my personal faves from the 2019 Tribeca Film festival. Not that it's great, but it has enough to indicate that McMullin and the cast may have a bright future.


Four teenaged boys - Alan (Keean Johnson), Smitty (Daniel Zolghadri), Red (Alex Neustadter), and Alan's younger brother Peter (Jaeden Martell) - live in a small town near the New Jersey shore. It's summer, and at night the boys like to break into homes, do a little stealing, and spend their newly-acquired cash on teenage things. They steal and hang out.

On this particular night, Peter joins the older boys when they break into the log cabin belonging to a recently deceased man. They are of the belief that he was a very wealthy man. Alan and Peter unearth a bag of gold coins hidden under the floorboards and hide it from the other boys, burying it in the woods.

Alan and Peter have two big problems facing them. The police suspect the group in the rash of burglaries, and Red, seemingly the craziest one of the bunch, is suspicious of Alan and Peter.

The rest of "Low Tide" is spent unraveling the mystery of the gold coins, the dynamics between the boys, and the hunt for the local young criminals. It's pretty straightforward stuff, but more than anything else it achieves the proper mood. Between the director and the portrayals there are no weak links, and it may turn out to be a film that people look back upon for a few different reasons. For now, let's think of it as a neap tide that could grow with age.

Danger Close 2019 Sinhala Subtitles

Synopsis
South Vietnam, late afternoon on August 18, 1966 - for three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle hardened Main Force Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault each man begins to search for his own answer - and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage. The Battle of Long Tan is one of the most savage and decisive engagements in ANZAC history, earning both the United States and South Vietnamese Presidential Unit Citations for gallantry along with many individual awards. But not before 18 Australians and more than 245 Vietnamese are killed.
