James Brown's New Doc: 9 Things We Learned From 'Mr. Dynamite'

28 October 2014 6:31 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

While James Brown fans already got the opportunity to see Chadwick Boseman as the Godfather of Soul in this summer's Get on Up, Alex Gibney (Finding Fela, Taxi to the Dark Side) tackled the real thing in HBO's Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown, a new documentary on the singer that premiered Monday night.

More hagiography than warts-and-all bio — the film omits Brown's arrests on weapons charges and only mentions one instance of many domestic abuse allegations in passing — the Mick Jagger-produced film still enlists many of Brown's former musicians, »

The Wonder Years (is finally) on DVD

7 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Wonder Years

Cast: Fred Savage, Josh Saviano, Danica McKellar, Dan Lauria, Alley Mills, Daniel Stern, Jason Hervey

Due Out: October 7, 2014

Who’S It For? “The Wonder Years” is timeless. Thankfully it doesn’t feel dated simply because I was a child of the ’80s trying to understand life in the late ’60s. “The Wonder Years” was my gateway drug to a nostalgia I didn’t even know. Like many of you, I grew up with Kevin. I hoped for Winnie, I had friends like Paul (and probably was Paul more than I realized).

I can’t wait to show “The Wonder Years” to my son. I’ll have to wait, because he hasn’t even turned two yet, but now I have six episodes to show him, and hopefully that will just be the beginning.

TV Score: 10/10

Named by TV Guide as one of the “Top 20 Shows of the ’80s, »

Zooey Deschanel's She & Him releasing 'Classics' album this fall

12 August 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

She & Him -- the sunny pop duo consisting of "New Girl" star Zooey Deschanel and indie guitar ace M. Ward -- are ready to tackle the "Classics." The twosome are making their major label debut this fall with a Columbia Records album full of timeless standards, which the press release assures us will be "carefully-selected," and not just randomly chosen.     Although no track listing has yet been released, "Classics" will no doubt reflect Deschanel and Ward's eclectic musical taste, which tends to lean heavily on '60 pop. Together, they've previously covered The Beach Boys' "I Can Hear Music"; Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell On You"; Smokey Robinson's "You Really Got a Hold On Me"; The Beatles' "I Should Have Known Better" and Blondie's "Sunday Girl." They also released a Christmas album in 2012.  Adding to that old-timey feel, She & Him recorded the new album live in the studio, »

Smokey Robinson Points to U.S. Constitution in Fight With Ex-Wife Over Song Rights

20 June 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

When U.S. lawmakers long ago decided to give authors the opportunity to terminate copyright grants to publishers, could they ever have imagined the novel dispute that is now playing out between legendary R&B singer Smokey Robinson and his ex-wife Claudette? As previously covered, the famous singer-songwriter behind such hits as "My Girl" and "You've Really Got a Hold on Me" sued his former spouse in California federal court, seeking declaratory relief that once he terminated rights to songs, he wouldn't have to share the reclaimed rights with her. The defendant then filed counterclaims, pointing to a 1989

‘Smokey Joe's Cafe’ Is Smokin’ (Guest Blog)

30 May 2014 3:52 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ok, I admit it. I grew up in Detroit and for my ears Motown music just sounds better than any other tunes. I often go straight to Smokey Robinson on Pandora when I am writing — just like right now as I compose this piece — and have blinders about any other music. But as I become older, I have decided to expand my musical tastes and not be so rigid, even though I believe that the Motown sound is the best. Two recent musical experiences helped me expand my horizons. The first one is “Smokey Joe's Café: The Songs of Leiber. »
