American Reunion Review: More Sleazily-Nostalgic Pie

American Reunion Review: More Sleazily-Nostalgic Pie

Once upon a time in Hollywood, in the land of fake boob-jobs and rehabbing stars, there was a raunched-out movie about four lewd n’ crude teen All-American boys hellbent on losing their virginity. A movie that so out-grossed every gross-out comedy that came before that it became the multiplex’s biggest buzz, the blueprint for butt-rocking...

The Hunger Games Review: Bella Swan, Better Watch Your Ass, Girl

Bella Swan, better watch your ass, girl. It’s about to get stomped, kicked, and sledgehammered, by a teen-slaying bad-bitch from the future. Katniss Everdeen’s the name. Don’t call her “Catnip,” unless you want a spear stabbed in your brain. She’s the heroine of three hyped-to-the-ultraviolent-max Young Adult novels by Suzanne Collins. The books became runaway...
Marvel's The Avengers Review: The Superhero Story Stabbed Full Of Steroids

Marvel’s The Avengers Review: The Superhero Story Stabbed Full Of Steroids

Marvel’s The Avengers (a.k.a. Marvel Avengers Assemble in the UK) is the summer popcorn-movie laced with a heavy dose of testosterone instead of butter. It’s the superhero story stabbed full of steroids. It’s like Hollywood stole every syringe from L.A.’s rehabbing rock stars, heisted all the Botox out of Beverly Hills, and swiped the human-growth-serum...

Will X Factor USA Be A Success? Simon Cowell Certainly Hopes So…

So the rumour mill is already in full swing regarding the second series of the US X Factor and I don’t think the publicity will do either the show or Cheryl Cole any harm for a long time yet. I was asked today if I thought the X Factor will succeed across the pond and...
Hello Boys! The Rebirth Of The Manufactured Boyband

Hello Boys! The Rebirth Of The Manufactured Boyband

There was a comment made today in the OnePopz HQ that we are in the middle of a boyband tidal wave which got me thinking: Are boybands everywhere at the moment because it’s their genders ‘turn’ on the pop merry-go-round, or is it in fact a POP tsunami with both boy and girl bands taking...

Pop Parody Parade - OnePopz Top 10 Pop Parodies

Pop Parody Parade – OnePopz Top 10 Pop Parodies

Whilst the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines parody as: “a literary or musical work in which the style of an author or work is closely imitated for comic effect or in ridicule”, here at OnePopz we consider great parodies to be bizarre and funny re-workings of our favourite pop songs – and boy are there a load of...

JLS Concert Review: Manchester MEN Arena, 20th April 2012

Kicking off the show from the place where the energy levels remain for most of the night, the boys drop through the roof onto a small stage out in the middle of the floor section and the arena explodes into a volcano of screams! This much smaller, intimate stage allows those not lucky enough to...
