But when you get songs like “The Twelve Lays of Christmas” and “Shitting on The Dock of The Bay”, and “I Wanna Be Fellated”- really where do you go from there?

One scene occurs during a production of Mozart’s Don Giovann -begging an answer to the question, why do supervillains love opera? iHere and there the score gets topical, an occasional waltz.
Based on the very successful Broadway musical, it is about a rock superstar Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise) and the religious activist (Catherine Zeta-Jones) determined to bring him down
. Former LCD Soundsytemers Fall On Your Sword have written a nerve dangling, thought proving beauty of a score. All tech stuff except for a piano that comes in here and there.
What I still don’t understand is that how could these children go from never appearing in public without wearing burqa and veils to playing in movies? How did they manage to adapt so fast?
As an examination of male bonding or male angst it beggers the imagination, and while I should have probably disliked it more, it has a sort of visceral power and I enjoyed the mens affection for each other, I didn’t really enjoy it.
Tweet from Oliver Weindling, founder of the British label Babel, saying: ‘Zed-U recorded part of soundtrack for Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead last week. Film (by Paul Thomas Anderson) to appear in 2013.’
Director Julia Leigh is a juxtaposition of youth and beauty and various forms of decay and ache. It looks really stunning and while enjoy it is not the right word, I watched it with a detached coolness that mirrored the primary actress.
the parts where Scorcese recreates the movie trickery of the old silent movies nearly makes this unwieldy, boring piece of crap worth watching. No child in its right mind would go within a million miles of this stinker.
Sundance Film Festival will premiere a rockumentary so to speak titled “Shut Up and Play The Hits’, a chronicle of the day of and day after the final MSG performance. Where did that title come from?
On the soundtrack there are lots of pop songs of the period, here a Dean Martin, there a Nat King Cole. Best of all is Marilyn singing “I Found Dream” in the bath, while Colin looks on from the back dazzled. It might never have happened but I treasure the daydream of proximity to greatness.
More interesting is the answer to who will play Eponine. According to Page Six it’s between Taylor Swift, Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel wood.
He has made movies that have just rocked me out. “The Boyfriend” -his homage to Busby Berkeley for one. And the two I mentioned earlier. Everything Russel does is feverish in the way Fellini or Zeffirelli are feverish: he can pitch it so over the top, again, look at “Tommy”.
The story of Saddam Hussein’s son, the villainous Uday Hussein, should be the highest of high camp as befitted the modern day Caligula, or a deadly serious look at his villainly. “The Devil’s Double” is neither.
The music is the equal of the movie. If all you know of Hawaiian music is that bloke who does “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”, prepare to be wowed big time. Gentle but not soft, based around steel guitars, flutes, and vocals that seem to yodel
But I adore anything from youth, hippity hops and big wheels and yes, Muppets. I have been squealing with excitement to see the new film and well .. I saw it.
Often when you here of a bio-pic you, rightly, get worried, but this time, about Joe Strummer’s disappearance in 1982, sounbds filled with possibilities
Edward is marrying Bella, Jacob is pissed, Edward and Bella have unprotected sex (meaning before he changes her into a vampire) and Bella gets pregnant… an impossibility and the half human half vampire fetus is killing Bella from the inside out… lucky fetus
Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino house band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate….
The Pieces of Shit! A new band? Rather the unexpected collaboration between David Byrne and Will Oldham aka Bonnie ‘Prince’ Bill. They wrote five original songs for the movie
Democratic Presidential candidate, Governor Mike Morris is in a race for delegates and his idealistic press secretary, is about to get a lesson in politics,
I’ve read the rave reviews of this endlessly tedious telling of J. Edgar Hoover, the head of the FBI who spent a career battling commies, ignoring the mafia, and spying on everyone… should have been a fun movie
The film we have mentioned a few times is now out and ready for viewing. Fatherhood requires no particular persona, you either are a father or your’re not. This film shows you the softer gentler more paternal side of rock and roll, though I still wonder why they call Art Aleksakis a ‘punk rocker’
It was the first time that a movement was challenging the authority and the police, and that they could articulate their believes in society, and it was also life changing, the movie really providing a better understanding of what punks went through: the scary barbarous shows with people at the peak of their physical shape, the fights and the punk image
the draggy theft flick is like “Ocean’s 11” for folks with personality flaws. A Madoff type character get naileds for a Ponzi scheme and abscons with the pensions of the employees at “The Tower” who want it back
If there was ever any doubt, it is now over, the White Castle chomping, pot smoking, trouble finding comedy duo Harol and Kumar now join the pantheon of greats in this mix of Cheech and Chong and Crosby and Hope plus every story of Christmas redemption you’ve ever seen.
Stoked as hell for this one
like a Disney movie from the 1970s
rules of the game for dummies
lot of emoting, a lot of bonding, a lot of cliches about life on the road and one thoroughly shitty song after another on the way to, ahem, SXSW
making movie, moving tribute
absolutely a genre exercise
English and his sidekick sing David Soul’s “Don’t Give Up On Us” to a dying assassin
it is all that matters…
They better get it right… or else
moving and facinatingly insightful of one of the great things that passed
“It’s like the transitive property – by kissing Michael Douglas, I am making out with Catherine.”
“if you can call this living”
a valid case for PJ remaining one of the greatest of American bands
steady as she goes score for a steady hit job of a movie.
I had anticipated a 30 min X commericial, instead i got nearly an hour and a half of my youth back

Maybe this is the year they get it right!!
