All The Songs In 'We Bought A Zoo' (Yes, That Was Temple Of The Dog You Heard)

30 December 2011 7:08 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While audiences seemed cool on the idea of Matt Damon hanging out with a bunch of animals in "We Bought A Zoo" (Vulture has a few pretty good theories on why that happened) they've been missing out a movie that has more heart than you might expect, and keeps the twee factor surprisingly dialed down. And being a Cameron Crowe film, he can't help but curate yet another mostly solid selection of songs, though it's not without a couple of headscratching choices. The Uncool has dropped the full list of songs that appear in the film, and some very familiar names are among the rost. Crowe continues to root through his vinyl collection from back in the day, picking up tunes from Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens and Neil Young, while also showing some soul with tunes from The Upsetters and Otis Rush. But the director also has a big alternative »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Velvet Goldmine’ Sparkles Brighter Than Ever on Blu-ray

28 December 2011 6:20 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Similar in style, structure and ambition to his 2007 kaleidoscopic portrait of Bob Dylan, “I’m Not There,” Todd Haynes’s 1998 effort “Velvet Goldmine,” takes a hallucinogenic trip through the ’70s glam rock period reigned over by David Bowie. Yet instead of centering his tale on Bowie, Haynes explores the era’s impact through the eyes of a haunted observer.

The film is less dramatically satisfying but far more interesting than a straightforward biopic. Jonathan Rhys Meyers’s striking features fit perfectly into the role of Bowie clone Brian Slade, but he remains an enigmatic object of interest and desire throughout the picture. That’s because his life is viewed solely through the perspective of others, as investigative reporter Arthur (Christian Bale) attempts to piece together the mystery of Slade’s whereabouts ten years after the singer faked his own death onstage.

Blu-ray Rating: 4.0/5.0

On a superficial level, “Goldmine” borrows the formula of “Citizen Kane, »

Margaret Cho: I Was Once Kim Jong Il

Kim Jong Il is dead, and the confirmation of this is something I had been waiting for, as I have long suspected that he had actually died years ago, and that the miracle of Photoshop and an outsourced Hollywood publicist had kept him alive, rather than heart and lung machines. We had no way of truly knowing. There is no way of knowing what happens in North Korea and what doesn’t.

What happens in North Korea stays in North Korea. »

Christine Vachon Reflects on 'Velvet Goldmine,' Our Blu-ray Pick of the Week

13 December 2011 7:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Todd Haynes is nothing if not versatile. He made his name in 1991 with his Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner "Poison," a highly stylized queer activist hybrid told in three unconnected strands. He's directed only five more projects, but each has been more ambitious and unexpected than the last. Before exploring the mythology of Bob Dylan in "I'm Not There" and paying tribute to Douglas Sirk with "Far From Heaven," Haynes made "Velvet Goldmine," a passionate and messy love letter to the 1970s glam rock era. The 1998 film, starring Christian Bale, Ewan McGregor, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and Toni Collette, world premiered to rave notices in Cannes where it netted a Special Jury Award. However, it failed to translate that early hype into critical praise and box office success stateside where it opened to lukewarm reviews and tepid grosses. Nevertheless, "Velvet Goldmine" has gone on to garner its own fanbase over the »

Listen: Ke$ha takes on Bob Dylan's 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright'

12 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ke$ha raised eyebrows when it was revealed her cover of Bob Dylan’s classic “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” would be included on the massive 76-song compilation, “Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan,”  coming out Jan. 24. She is joined by such artists as Adele, My Morning Jacket, and Miley Cyrus on the set, which benefits Amnesty International. We’re all for the great cause and we applaud her for participating in such a worthy endeavor. Admittedly, unless some miracle occurred, there was really no way that this was a marriage that was going to work. Should we stop now since »

Ke$$ha records Bob Dylan's 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright' - video

12 December 2011 8:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ke$$ha has covered a Bob Dylan classic for an upcoming charity album. The singer has recorded a rendition of 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright' for Amnesty International's Chimes of Freedom record, which will feature 76 covers from Dylan's collection. Ke$$ha told Rolling Stone: "I didn't want this to sound like a pop version of a Bob Dylan song. That's the last thing I wanted this to sound like." The 24-year-old planned to record a different interpretation of the song, which dealt with a female suicide note. However, the lyrics took on a personal meaning for the performer as she became emotional while singing in the recording booth. "There were particular lyrics in the song that you can just tell, once they came out of my mouth - the emotion caught up with me and I just started weeping," (more) »

More than 70 artists, from popsters Miley Cyrus, Ke$ha and Adele to rockers like Maroon 5 and even folk singer Pete Seeger, have contributed to Amnesty International’s new Bob Dylan tribute charity album. The collection honors the human rights organization on its 50th anniversary, although Dylan long ago disavowed the protest music movement and said he was never really a part of it. The lineup of singers couldn’t be more diverse for the collection, called Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan. Dylan, himself, sings the cover song, “Chimes of Freedom.” »

Omg! We're going to The X Factor!

9 December 2011 4:09 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Music is a serious issue for Suzanne Moore. She has introduced daughter Angel to Bob Dylan, the Sex Pistols and Billie Holiday. Then along came The X Factor. So what happened when they went to the semi-finals?

I haven't bothered much with The X Factor this year. The formula is tired. Cowell is not there. The blanding out of music into something-they-prepared-earlier is tedious, as is the endless sobbing, the choreographed back stories, the fake auditioning of those who have been talent-scouted – or paid – to make fools of themselves. The daft rivalry between the judges, and even the flashing lights, are irritating. But I am not 10 and sometimes you just have to get over yourself. This series may have lost a million viewers but it is still the biggest show in Britain across Saturday and Sunday nights.

When I got tickets to see the semi-final last week, my youngest was beside herself. »

The tao of Johnny Hallyday

8 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Whenever depression looms for Joe Queenan, it's time to turn to Johnny Hallyday. What is it about the films of the French Elvis Presley that holds the answer to all life's woes?

The other day I was feeling unusually melancholy, what with the economy in the tank and construction workers building evil McMansions next to my house. One of my friends suggested I watch a Hong Kong gangster movie called Vengeance. He said the film was completely insane and would take my mind off my troubles. I told him all Hong Kong gangster movies were completely insane, but he fired back: "No – this one is really insane."

He was right.

Vengeance, released in 2009, is actually a Franco-Hong Kong collaboration that pools the resources of the legendary actor/director Johnnie To and those of the legendary rock star/actor Johnny Hallyday, the French Elvis Presley. Hallyday, né Jean-Philippe Smet, is in fact Belgian, »

Filmmaker David O. Russell is auctioning off a walk-on role in an upcoming movie to raise money for a Tibetan charity.

The Fighter director is expected to raise $15,000 (£9,300) for Tibet House by inviting the winning bidder to shoot a scene in his next project.

Hip-hop mogul and philanthropist Russell Simmons is also helping the cause by pledging to give an hour-long private yoga lesson in New York City - a prize expected to fetch $5,000 (£3,100) when it goes under the hammer on the Charity Buzz website.

Director Martin Scorsese has offered a visit to the set of his hit TV show Boardwalk Empire, while a meet-and-greet session with Maggie Gyllenhaal at the premiere of her comedy Hysteria is also up for grabs.

Rare prints of stars including John Lennon, Jay-z, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix are also available in the auction for Tibet House, a charity which promotes and preserves Tibetan culture. »

The Critics' Choice Movie Awards Are Music to Martin Scorsese's Ears

6 December 2011 12:09 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Queue up the Rolling Stones hit "Gimme Shelter," because this year the Critics' Choice Movie Awards are going to play out to the soundtrack of Martin Scorsese's life.

That's because the Critics' Choice Movie Award announced today that they will be honoring the legendary director during their Jan. 12 ceremony with the prestigious Music + Film Award, which recognizes artists who have "heightened the impact of films through the brilliant use of source and original music."

And there's no doubt that Scorsese is one of the all-time masters of marrying film imagery with just the perfect song. Besides his oft-cited love of "Gimme Shelter," which he has used in three different films, Scorsese is renowned for working in other classic pop tunes either to compliment the visuals or to provide a surprise emotional counterbalance.

Add in the fact that over the course of his long career Scorsese has often taken time »
