Dance Mix USA 2002

Various Artists

AMC

There’s like, a zillion dance mix CDs on the market, and after a while it gets difficult to really tell them apart. Dance Mix USA 2002 appears to be one of those, until you hear the song “Dooky Boody” by DJ D-Man. Any compilation that has a song like that, well, it’s sure different. In addition to that wacky song, “Cafe Con Leche” (El Presidente), “Feels so Good” (Lina Santiago), “Pants R Saggin’” (B-Code), “You Are My Everything” (DJ Marco), “The Best Love Around” (DJ Marco), and “Funky Mike” (DJ Marco) make this unlike any other dance compilation out there. It does what it’s supposed to do, and even though at first it’s a little camp, it turns out okay in the end.

Flaming Ears

Screen Reviews

Set in the year 2700 in the imaginary city of Asche, Flaming Ears is a daring micro-budget sci-fi film from 1991 that envisioned a dystopian urban landscape that now seems eerily familiar. Lily and Generoso share their thoughts on the film’s new 4K restoration.
