    Review: 'Lion King 3D' Maintains All of the Majesty of the Original, With Added Dimensional Sparkle

    A few years ago, Disney planned a theatrical release for a 3D version of "Beauty & the Beast," using the cutting edge, post-"Avatar" technology that we've all come to know so well (and sometimes dread just as much). The conversion took place, at great expense, but the theatrical engagement (originally set for February, 2010) never materialized. Still, the studio pressed ahead (Walt always said that good ideas never die), and this week the studio's traditionally animated crown jewel "The Lion King," in a shiny new 3D format, will get a proper release – in 2,000 3D screens across the country.

    Watch: Matt Damon and Cameron Crowe Get Animal Crackers In Trailer For 'We Bought A Zoo'

    It's been six long years since we last saw a Cameron Crowe (fictional) film on screen, but seeing that that film was the, frankly, disastrous "Elizabethtown," he's perhaps been missed less than he might have been otherwise. Still, the writer-director has enough great work behind him that we're alway...

    Desire & Chromatics Producer Johnny Jewel Working On Music For Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Logan's Run'

    Of all the many pleasures of Nicolas Winding Refn's very imminent "Drive," one of the deepest is its ice-cool soundtrack. Combining a fantastic 80s-tinged synth score from Cliff Martinez with a selection of Italodisco cuts from artists like Kavinsky and College, it's worth a download even if you have no intention of seeing the film. And it looks like the soundscape of the film is something that Winding Refn is intending on continuing in the near future; Portland electronica artist Johnny Jewel, best known for his band Glass Candy (whose music was featured in Refn's "Bronson"), but who has two song on the film through side-projects Desire and ...
