As we begin a new year of music, Don Shiau shares his biggest concert experience of 2016. And possibly his entire life. Because really, how do you top rock’s biggest royalty?
2016 is almost done with. And what have we learnt from modern pop culture? That rock ’n’ roll is dead? That nostalgia & fan service in movies trumps originality? That real life is slowly but surely upstaging science fiction for sheer bizarreness?
2016 promised to be the year of geek movies as Marvel, DC and Fox released superhero adaptations galore and Disney/Lucasfilm launched the first Star Wars standalone film. Geek blockbusters were once again thrown into the mix as young adult franchises were initiated. Let’s try to make sense of it all, alright?
Haven’t done this for quite a while but it’s time to get stuck into new music that is coming out this year. First up, January!
Now that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is history, let’s look ahead to the scifi, superhero & fantasy flicks that await us geeks in the coming new year!
A couple of factoids before we move on, dear PoP geek reader.
First, Justin Lin (of Fast & Furious fame 3-6) directs (JJ Abrams had some other scifi movie to work on!). Second, this movie is being released in 2016 — the most saturated geek movie year EVAH!
