In this weekend’s battle between the aliens and the cartoon zoo animals, the real winner was the box office.
“Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” beat “Prometheus,” with both movies enjoying openings so large that the entire box office jumped more than 30 percent from the same period last year. Paramount / DreamWorks Animation’s third “Madagascar” flick was #1 with an estimated $60.5 million debut, followed by filmmaker Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror thriller “Prometheus,” which finished the weekend with a strong $50 million total.
The Reckless Kind play some kinda heavy Rock n’ Soul. There are shades of other eras, yes- but who gives a damn? It’s all about honesty, passion and delivery and TRK have all of that in spades. The songwriting is excellent, the players can play, and lead singer Philip Mills’ voice connects on a level that makes one feel things. Whether he sings about love, heartbreak, the modern world, or a coked up lady by the name of Sadie who has gone homicidal and now is on the lamb in Mexico- you will believe the man.
