    Watch: Trailer For Dave Grohl-Produced & Directed Doc 'Sound City'

    While the history of musicians moving into movies -- whether acting, directing or otherwise -- has been dodgy to say the least, there are times when the artist and material syncs up perfectly and the transition makes sense. And such is the case with "Sound City," a new documentary produced...

    A Sad Day for the Movie World

    I was mortified to wake up this morning to the news that a young man in his 20s wearing a bullet proof vest and a gas mask made his way into a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises and shot 12 people to death and injured at least 38 (including several children.)

    New Pics From 'Take This Waltz' Plus Expansion Release Dates, See When It Will Hit Your Town

    In case we haven't made it pretty clear already, "Take This Waltz" is one of the best films of 2012 thus far. We've been blowing the trumpet pretty hard for the film, and that's because it's the kind of low-key, smart picture that needs to be championed, so excuse us if we&...

    Listen: RZA's "Blowin' In The Wind" For 'Iron Fists' & Judith Hill's "Desperation" From 'Red Hook Summer'

    Despite all the blockbuster movies this summer, it seems we really haven't had a great soundtrack to go with them. "The Avengers" melange of alt-rock fodder was a bit embarrassing, and the great selection of songs from "Take This Waltz" do not have an official release just ye...

    Steven Spielberg is known for working efficiently, but every man has his limits. Originally slated to be relaesed next July, 20th Century Fox wisely realised that with the director busy on "Lincoln," there was no way that could happen and pushed the release date one more year. But make no ...

    They keep saying that the DVD format is on its last legs and yet they still keep coming out with very interesting and worthwhile releases and especially older catalog studio titles (most of which are new to DVD) and for which there is still obviously a significant demand for.
