Nashville – Glen Campbell had many acts in his long career – sought after session guitarist, singer, TV & movie star and country personality – but his greatest contribution to culture may be the 2011 public announcement of his Alzheimer’s disease, and the documentary about the condition, “I’ll Be Me.” Campbell died on August 8th, 2017. He was 81.
The amiable persona he built as a pop music star was amplified by his variety show “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” which ran on CBS-tv from 1969 to 1972. The show opened every week with his hit song “Gentle on My Mind,” and featured the good time personality of Campbell interacting with the guests and musical acts, which included an eclectic mix of artists like Ray Charles, The Monkees, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, The Righteous Brothers, Liza Minnelli and Tom Jones. And this was all before his signature song, “Rhinestone Cowboy,” became an unlikely number one hit in »

No one has cooler side projects than Paul Thomas Anderson. Last November, shortly before starting production on his still untitled London fashion drama with Daniel Day-Lewis, Anderson directed the short film “Valentine,” a behind-the-scenes look at the pop rock band Haim recording three songs for their recent album “Something to Tell You.” Anderson also collaborated with Radiohead on three videos last year for songs off their acclaimed album “A Moon Shaped Pool.”

Haim released the first four and a half minutes of the short film as a music video for their song “Right Now” in April, though “video” is a bit of a misnomer, as Anderson shot “Valentine” on beautiful 35mm.
“This short plays well with concert films, musicals, late night shows, sing-a-longs and a glass of beer,” reads a description on the 35mm print canister. »

5 Reasons why you need to see Baby Driver5 Reasons why you need to see Baby DriverAdriana Floridia7/6/2017 10:46:00 PMDirector Edgar Wright is kind of a big deal. Although he may not be a household name yet, with his latest film, Baby Driver, surely even non-film aficionados will soon know who he is. Most famous for his "Cornetto" trilogy, comprising of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End, and all made with collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, these three films are something of cult classics. He also directed the Toronto-set Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which many consider a masterpiece of stylistic filmmaking. Baby Driver follows in its footsteps as an equally stylistic crime film about Baby (Ansel Elgort), a young getaway driver who's paying a debt to a mob boss (Kevin Spacey). It's a story we've seen before, but it has never quite unfolded like it does in Baby Driver, »

According to Variety, HBO has set Tyler Perry to portray pioneering African-American filmmaker Oscar Micheaux in an upcoming biopic, which is based upon film historian Patrick McGilligan’s 2007 biography Oscar Micheaux: The Great and Only: The Life of America’s First Black Filmmaker.
Novelist turned filmmaker Micheaux made his directorial debut in 1919 with an adaptation of his book The Homesteader, having raised the money himself after rejecting an earlier offer from another company who refused to allow him to direct. Working outside of the Hollywood studio system he would go on to helm over 40 films throughout his career, including Within Our Gates, The Exile, Swing!, and The Notorious Elinor Lee, before passing away in 1951.
The script for the film is being written by Charles Murray (Sons of Anarchy, Roots), while Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are producing, having previously developed biopics on the likes of The Beach Boys, Judy Garland, »

The Guardians of the Galaxy films are famous for incorporating classic tracks into the films' scenes and narrative -- nothing beats watching Kurt Russell talk his way through 'Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)' by Looking Glass.

Edgar Wright has been obsessed with his musical choices since his TV show Spaced, with the following soundtracks for Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World all including some pretty deep cuts that make for fine listening, long after you've seen the film.
