Suffice to say, in recent times the best stories have usually been found on TV. Well, technically, cable and online streaming. This year was no different.
2017 was a very eventful year for geek movies in general. Geek franchises like the MCU and Star Wars demonstrated their wide-ranging popularity with the masses whilst (sometimes) dumbing down story content in the process.
2017 was a great year for music and there was enough evidence from old and new artists that Power Pop Rock N Roll is still alive and kicking.
As we had shared with you at the beginning of the year, we have been trying to narrow Power of Pop’s musical focus – coming up with catchphrases like “THE NEW ROCK N ROLL”, “POP POWER!!!” and most recently, “POWER POP ROCK N ROLL” to differentiate the kind of music we are interested to champion from the other kinds of music we quite believe is a complete waste of our (and your) time.
Around mid-2016, we made a conscious decision to revamp Power of Pop completely. We needed to narrow the site’s focus back on the music that we love i.e. pop-rock. In addition, we resolved to move away from reviews and concentrate on being a tastemaker, with an emphasis on discovery.
Yeah yeah everybody’s got a fuckin’ list of recommended 2017 movies. Here’s ours – in order of anticipation. Nuff said.
