Chester Watson – Tin Wooki EP

300x300

The 16-year-old emcee/producer recently dropped his EP, Tin Wooki. The EP strives to be different, as it is split into five complete Acts. With over 28 tracks in total, it is a unique way of splitting it up, but we had no problem letting this one play through.

The album features a laid-back vibe as Chester takes you on a ride by dropping knowledge with lyricism, all of which are neatly packed into each track. While most of the album was produced by Chester, Psymun and Art Vandelay are two other notable producers featured throughout the EP. Within each section (Act), Tin Wooki speaks out on a different level, as Chester consistently brings us story telling complete with well thought-out verses.

Ridley Scott Sets Prometheus 2 For March 2016

Director Ridley Scott is currently getting his next epic adventure ready for release this December. Exodus: Gods and Kings is a modern adaptation of the biblical epic of Moses and his struggle to free the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. The film stars Christian Bale in the role of Moses and Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul as Joshua, Moses’ brother, from a script by Bill Collage, Adam Cooper, and Steven Zaillian. With production almost complete, fans have been anxious to hear about which project director Scott will push for release next. It seems that project is going to be the follow up to 2012’s Alien prequel, Prometheus, which despite the outstanding visual effects, cinematography, and set design, was as a whole really disappointing. Now that we know there will be a follow up to Prometheus, I think we’re all hoping for a more original approach to the story this time. The original Alien was a perfect mix of terror, suspense, and original story telling, so hopefully that equation will find it’s way to this next installment.

‘Terminator: Genesis’ Reboot Movie Beginning Production In April

The Terminator originally hit the big screen in 1984 from director James Cameron. The movie made Arnold Schwarzenegger an action movie star and earned director Cameron his reputation for outstanding visual effects. Following a cyborg robot (Arnold) who is sent back to 1984 to terminate the mother of John Connor, the leader of the human resistance against the Machines, the movie co-starred Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn and since its release has had a total of three sequels, the first of which was also directed by Cameron. Now a reboot in the series is in the works with Arnold Schwarzenegger back as the Terminator, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, and the plot will, according to Schwarzenegger, involve time travel back to 1984 up to the present day. Since the film is a reboot the plot will most likely revolve around the same story as the original, or at least an adaptation of it, but what will be most exciting will be seeing Arnold back in his famous role and the visual effects modern technology will allow director Alan Taylor to bring to the story. Production is set to begin next month, so we’ll keep an ear out for more news.

The project also sees a couple features from Finding Novyon and Rich Garvey while still maintaining Devon as the main attraction.
