10 Rare Cover Songs by Amy Winehouse That Demand Your Attention

23 July 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 27, popular music lost one of its most talented young voices. She had stunned the world in 2006 with her breakthrough album, Back To Black, which showcased her larger-than-life vocal range and songwriting skills that belayed her tender years. By the end of her life Winehouse had become infamous for her personal problems and drug-fueled exploits, but her music will endure long after the tabloid headlines are forgotten. While most of her songs are autobiographical, featuring lyrics brimming with equal parts wit and vulnerability, she wasn't afraid to add her own unique twist to familiar tunes. »

14 Powerful Songs of Protest the Black Lives Matter Movement Has Inspired

13 July 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Like any powerful social movement, Black Lives Matter has inspired a flood of artwork in its wake. As Professor Daphne A. Brooks writes, the cause has especially kicked off "a new golden age of protest music" with echoes of 1960s, when antiwar sentiment and the civil rights movement were at the forefront of the national consciousness. It was a time when artists like Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, and Sam Cooke quite literally raised their voices in protest to confront racism and antiblack violence. Now, a new wave of performers is following in those footsteps and providing a soundtrack both inspired by and in support of Black Lives Matter. Listen to some of the most stirring songs they've created in our playlist below. »

Episode 173 – Ingmar Bergman’s Summer Interlude

25 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

This time on the podcast, Scott is joined by David Blakeslee, Trevor Berrett, and Arik Devens to discuss Ingmar Bergman’s Summer Interlude.

About the film:

Touching on many of the themes that would define the rest of his legendary career—isolation, performance, the inescapability of the past—Ingmar Bergman’s tenth film was a gentle drift toward true mastery. In one of the director’s great early female roles, Maj-Britt Nilsson beguiles as an accomplished ballet dancer haunted by her tragic youthful affair with a shy, handsome student (Birger Malmsten). Her memories of the sunny, rocky shores of Stockholm’s outer archipelago mingle with scenes from her gloomy present, most of them set in the dark backstage environs of the theater where she works. A film that the director considered a creative turning point, Summer Interlude (Sommarlek) is a reverie about life and death that unites Bergman’s love of theater and cinema. »

The Voice Predictions: Who's at Risk on Top 9 Results Night?

10 May 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Voice Top 9 results telecast (tonight, 8/7c on NBC) should be as predictable as Pharrell sporting a knit cap — if the contestants’ iTunes rankings are to be believed.

RelatedThe Voice Top 9 Performance Recap: The Front-Runner Takes a Tumble

Indeed, two artists are straggling like elderly impala at the back of the sales pack — and seem most likely to fall into the cruel and unforgiving jaws of elimination. But then again, we can’t forget about the all-powerful Blake Multiplier*. (*By which the country coach’s rabid fans vote for his artists regardless of performance quality.)

The Voice Top 9 Performance Recap: The Front-Runner Takes a Tumble

9 May 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Thou shalt not take the name of thy diva Beyoncé in vain.

On tonight’s Top 9 performance episode of The Voice, however, Christina Aguilera righteously name-checked Ms. Knowles — calling on the “Formation” singer to perform a duet with her protégé Bryan Bautista after his fantastic performance of “1 + 1.”

RelatedThe Good Wife: Why Alicia’s Ending Was a Triumph of Structure Over Truth

Smart move, really, promoting a #BryanAndBeyonce hashtag. After all, the ridiculously handsome crooner had his best week just as his teammate, season-long front-runner Alisan Porter, self-immolated in the blazing heat of an overbaked performance of Aerosmith’s »

The Voice Recap: Knockouts! Who's There?

29 March 2016 6:45 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

What is a Knockout Rounds episode of The Voice without the sound of Carson Daly busting a blood vessel in his brain while screaming “We’Ve Got A Steal!!!!”?

VideosReality Check: Could Trent Steal the Idol Crown? Plus: We’ve Brainstormed Fox’s Next Great Reality Competition! And Who Stood Out in the Voice Battles?

We learned the answer to such an unthinkable question on Tuesday night’s pithy (and Steal-free) one-hour installment, which reinforced the eye-popping depth of Team Xtina, reminded us that it’s never a wise idea to write off Team Blake, and cemented my overall feeling »

Silver Scream Fest: American Werewolf Reunion

6 March 2016 11:38 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

It’s been 35 years since a certain werewolf terrorized London, and to celebrate that anniversary, we gathered director John Landis, special effects guru Rick Baker, and actor David Naughton to discuss the production of An American Werewolf In London with Maniac Cop’s William Lustig moderating.

Screening the film for old fans and newbies gave the panel a rush of energy, and the three men laughed heartily at the remembrances. Landis recalled that he had been working on a film called Kelly’S Heroes when he saw some gypsies burying a man covered in rosaries and garlic and incense — and they were burying him feet first! — all to keep the corpse from coming back from the dead. He found it fascinating, and wondered how these superstitions could be so strong two months after we’d gone to the moon.

So he wrote the script for over a decade before the film finally went into production. »
