    Awards season is firmly underway now, and the calendar of dinners, drinks and screenings held by studios to pimp their hopeful nominees is already filling up.

    'Black Swan' Soundtrack Featuring Score By Clint Mansell Hits Stores November 30th

    This writer, to his eternal shame, has something of a tin ear for classical music. Generally speaking, if a piece of music doesn't have at least one chorus, or is part of a film score, we tend to glaze over a little bit.

    Denis Leary Joins The Cast Of Marc Webb's 3D 'Spider-Man' Reboot

    Clooney in Talks as Man From U.N.C.L.E.

    I was so fond of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. when I was a kid that I named my two kittens Solo and Kuryakin. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is yet another studio TV remake that begs the question: will anyone under 50 remember the title?
