This week on Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews The Raid 2: Berandal! Is it a worthy follow-up to the original? Is it actually better than the original? Is it too ambitious for its own good? Can it be considered bloated and pretentious? Could it possibly be the most violent action film ever made? Does it deserve comparison to classic “Heroic Bloodshed’ films like Hard Boiled and City on Fire? Might it even deserve comparison to the likes of The Godfather Part 2? Does it raise the bar for action cinema? Are fans overhyping it? Is it merely an ultraviolent yet disposable cult film from a familiar genre?
We’ll also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of that most classic of rap albums, Illmatic! Does it still hold up? Is it still Nas’ best album to date? Is its classic status overstated? Was Nas the beneficiary of east coast (IE New York) Bias? Was the album’s warm reception from the Hip-Hop press part of a calculated plot to bring New York back to prominence in the early 1990’s? Has Nas lived up to the promise of the album? Is he truly one of the all-time greats? Why did it take so long to be certified platinum by the RIAA? Join us as we examine the most acclaimed rap album of its time!
