Monster Entertainment Awards 7I have hosted this award post for seven years now and I never fails to bring enjoyment to me for a couple of reasons. One of the reasons being that each album that wins gets a review for the album of the week so that will be exciting for the next month. The second reason is that we get to celebrate and vote for what we believe was the best rock album of the previous calendar year and we voted for the best of 2017 and I have the results for you guys. Marilyn Manson seems to always be a big winner as he won album of the year for The Pale Emperor, but this year he takes home the award for Best Rock Album for Heaven Upside Down as well as Rock Single and Rock Video Of The Year as well. There is going to be a lot of arguments over the winner of the album of the year, but Link Park really did put out a solid effort with One More Light. Code Orange came out of nowhere and defeated some giants of metal to take home the Metal Album Of The Year award while Morbid Angel claims their first win in the Extreme Metal Album Of The Year with Kingdoms Disdained. Here are some of the other winners: Rock Single Of The Year: KILL4ME by Marilyn Manson, Rock Video Of The Year: We Know Where You F*cking Live by Marilyn Manson, Metal Single Of The Year: No Lives Matter by Body Count, Metal Video Of The Year: Nuclear Alchemy by Watain.  Check out the rest of the winners below:

Monster Entertainment Awards 7So, it has taken us a little while to get this out and we apologize for the wait. Some things have changed and we have decided that we are not going to run the Pedal To The Metal Tournament this year for lack of participation and scheduling conflicts. That is also why we have extended the voting process for this because we have been so far behind that we are starting to catch up now. You now have until April 1st to cast your vote for your favorite wrestlers, albums, and movies. We have a lot of great categories and some categories have already seen the voting process begin on Twitter. Nevertheless, we hope that you guys take the time to vote and to enjoy it because it is up to you to decide who wins and you can vote once an hour on every category. So, have some fun and spread the word.

 

Monster Entertainment Awards 7I want to take the time to apologize to everyone for the wait, but we have been hard at work at some things for you guys which includes our March Madness style tournament. It’s hard to believe that we have been doing this awards thing known as The Monster Entertainment Awards for seven years now as 2018 marks the seventh annual presentation. A couple of things have changed however and you’ll notice that below, but each category will be handled by a different blog as we are working with the 365 Movies in 365 Days Challenge blog and Mr. X’s Punch Out blog. We here at Moshpits and movies will be handling the music side of things while 365 handles the films and Mr. X handles the wrestling side. As always, you are going to have a certain amount of time to vote for what album you loved more, what movie you thought was film of the year, and what wrestler you thought kicked ass. When all the votes are tallied up, we will present to you all of the winners that YOU chose because it’s all about the people. This award post has always been about you getting involved and deciding who is the best of the year and that is the way we intend to keep it. You will have until March 13Th at 10PM Eastern time to decide what is best so get involved and voice your opinion.

aI want to remind everyone that the Grammy’s do not make a band legitimate or not even though they have tried cleaning up mistake after mistake. The Grammy’s tend to drop the ball when the nods come in for Best rock song, etc. In past years, we have seen the committee get lazy and pick only bands that had been around for decades with cover songs as the songs they have chosen for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental to Jethro Tull instead of Metallica. One of the biggest embarrassments for the academy was the 1989 awarding of Best Metal Performance We have also seen them drop the ball as far as what deserves to be considered for Best Rock Album, but all of that has changed with this years nominees. This year, it seems like things have gotten better with the academy and that they actually woke up. Bands like August Burns Red, Body Count, Code Orange, Mastodon, and Meshuggah were nominated for Best Metal Performance. Metallica received two nods at the show as they were nominated for Best Best Rock Album (Hardwired… To Self Destruct) and Best Rock Song (Atlas, Rise!). Other bands that received multiple nods were Nothing More (Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Performance), Mastodon (Best Metal Performance and Best Rock Album),  and the Foo Fighters (Best Rock Song, Performance). This could be a sign of things to come, but then again this is the academy we are talking about here. The award show airs live on January 28, 2018 on CBS and check out the nods below:

I have listened to so many volumes of the Punk Goes Pop, Punk Goes 80’s, and other albums and every once in a while you get a really cool cover on those compilations. The discs are a really a chance for young and up and coming artists to get noticed a little bit more than before through the hottest pop songs of the time. Some of you may already know who Upon A Burning Body is and you definitely should know who Ice-T is. Upon A Burning Body is that band that pulled the prank on everyone when they claimed their lead singer Danny Leal had been kidnapped. The metal community didn’t take kindly to the prank, but the band moved on to tour this past summer on The Mayhem Fest. Well, the band has teamed up with legendary rapper, Body Count frontman, and fellow Sumerian Records label mate Ice-T for a cover of DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s recent hit Turn Down For What on the brand new Punk Goes Pop Volume 6. The cover is actually really good and definitely worth checking out as Danny Leal and Co. transform this song and it makes sense. It’s actually my favorite song on the new volume as transforming Lil Jon’s what into a hardcore voice is made easy by Danny Leal. Check it out below:

The band also went on the road with the 2014 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Fest and the band along with their videographer Sebastien Paquet recorded everything on the road documenting the bands experience on the festival. The documentary also features appearances from Ice T (Body Count), Upon A Burning Body, Avenged Sevenfold, Islander, Texas Hippie Coalition, Emmure, Trivium, as well as you’ll see various radio interviews the band does, and some intimate moments they share with other bands and vice versa.

kornThe documentary is actually pretty amazing even though it just seems like a continuous video after another rather than a documentary. One of my only problems with the doc is they show footage in Boston (which is really Mansfield), but the live footage is from Dallas, Texas that follows. The doc features some really cool behind the scenes stuff that you don’t really get to see if you’re on the outside looking in. Of course, the doc features the band running through hits like Somebody Someone, Got The Life, Falling Away From Me, Shoots & Ladders, Blind, as well as some of the newer material like Spike In My Veins, Hater, and Never Never. The footage that was shot is absoultely amazing especially when the band is in Colorado, that was definitely one of my favorite spots that they shot in. One of the other things I liked is how supportive they are of other bands on the bill, it’s classy! If I was you and you were as big a fan of Korn as I am , I would definitely check this out. I wonder if it’s going to get a release somewhere in the future? I am going to give this video an A- for a final grade. Check it out below:

looseThere was a time in the 80’s where sexed out, raunchy comedies were ruling the silver screen from films like Porky’s and The Last American Virgin, sex was something that was explored a heck of a lot more in the 80’s. After all, it was the decade of decadence! So, if Porky’s took place in the 50’s and 60’s, then Screwballs was the 80’s film about a group of friends who are probably never getting out of high school until their principal forces them to go off to a reform type school. In the tradition of the first film, the four friends will take a shot at who will get the new French teacher (played by the sexy Cynthia Belliveau). The film stars Bryan Genesse (The Bold & The Beautiful), Lance Van Der Kolk, Alan Deveau (Amelia), Jason Warren (Screwballs), Annie McAuley (Body Count), and Terrea Smith (Flesh Gordon Meets The Cosmic Cheerleaders).

screwballs copyIf you were expecting some actual comedy that didn’t need sex to make it funny, then you chose to watch the wrong film. Screwballs 2 uses every sexual device that you could possibly use in a film that also uses sex as a play on words and names.With names like Steve Hardman, Cockswell Academy, Mona Lott,  and Marvin Eatmore, this is what you get and there is constant sex throughout the whole film. You even get a fantastic striptease at the end of the film courtesy of Cynthia Belliveau. The whole entire film, the guys are trying to screw the French teacher and they fail epically every time until they get their final revenge at the end. The acting is actually pretty good and their are lots of hot woman in this film and so much cleavage. On a scale of 1 being close to an A-List film and 5 being the cheesiest film of all time, I am giving this film a 2.5 because it is an enjoyable film and the acting is decent and Stephanie Sulik is pretty hot too.
