Paul McCartney Rocks Milwaukee’s Miller Park

Paul McCartney's performance of 'Hey Jude' at last summer's Olympics caused some people on social-networking sites to wonder if it was time for him to finally retire that chestnut. But his sold-out concert at Milwaukee's Miller Park on July 16 proved why he shouldn't: Nothing can unite a massive crowd like that famous coda.

‘Pacific Rim’ Review

As basically a three-word genre mash-up -- monsters vs. robots -- the announcement that Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures were making 'Pacific Rim' didn't really need to offer much more than just that siren-song simple idea. But it did, promising a big canvas for a big talent, the director Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro isn't a household name -- unless you live in Austin -- but he's the outsized outsider genius behind movies like 'Hellboy' and 'Blade 2' as well as films like 'Pan's Labyrinth' and 'The Devil's Backbone.' And while counting down to 'Pacific Rim,' I had the feeling that while it was nice to have someone spending $200 million to make what my inner 12-year-old would no doubt consider the perfect summer movie, my adult self couldn't help but be suspicious of anyone who'd spend that much money on a pre-teen's idea of the perfect summer movie.

‘World War Z’ Review

The title is 'World War Z,' but I can think up two other letters: "O" and "K."

'World War Z' is okay because it zips along with the fury of a computer-generated cascade of fast zombies. 'World War Z' is okay because Brad Pitt is a great leading man, even if his character has no depth. 'World War Z' is okay because there is always a fatalistic draw to see our social order tumble and great cities reduced to cinders.

It is also, unfortunately, merely okay because there's nothing in this movie you haven't seen before.

Primal Scream (Feat. Robert Plant), ‘Elimination Blues’ – Song Review

It's not quite accurate to say Primal Scream use Robert Plant for backing vocals on 'Elimination Blues.' The Led Zeppelin lead singer is more of an instrument, used to sweeten an experimental blues song. It's a bold move to ignore the temptation to put Plant in a starring role.

Rod Stewart, ‘Time’ – Album Review

Since 2002, Rod Stewart has released eight albums. Each and every one of them includes songs that were written before ‘Maggie May’ hit No. 1 in 1971. A lot of them, in fact, were written before the 68-year-old rock legend learned to walk. Five ‘Great American Songbook’ albums, a rock oldies collection, an R&B oldies collection and a Christmas album – that’s pretty much how Stewart has spent the past decade.

The performance stirred up emotions deep within Robert Plant and brought the entire audience to their feet.
