The Top Uses of Beastie Boys Songs in Movies

9 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The boys, the boys, the ! Oh yeah, for a long time they were the absolute best when it came to doing what they did. They knew how to put on a show, how to throw down with the best and how to straight up party when it came time to throw a great concert. With the loss of Adam Yauch and Steve Berry though they’re not quite the same despite their legendary sound. It’s exceedingly sad really that such a great band would undergo two hurtful losses despite the fact that they were something that couldn’t be avoided. It’s

7 July 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No, it’s not a promo for the all puppet Beastie Boys cover band, The Beastie Birds, but the latest Sesame Street mashup is just as much fun. From the Webby Award-winning genius who set “Rick and Morty” to the mellifluous tunes of Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools (Drank),” comes yet another highly entertaining remake — this time to Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage.”

The original video was directed by none other than Spike Jonze, and this cheeky update follows that one pretty faithfully. Opening with Big Bird on the run in a cornfield, and ending with him lost in a parade, Big Bird’s round eyes and bumbling gait fit fit perfectly with the song’s distorted guitar riffs.

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Team Up for a Tandem Bike Ride in the Hamptons

28 May 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Justin Timberlake rode a tandem bike through the Hamptons during Memorial Day weekend — but wife Jessica Biel wasn’t his cycle partner.

Pal Jimmy Fallon instead joined the 36-year-old “Can’t Stop The Feeling” singer for some holiday weekend “bro-biking,” which they captured for Timberlake’s Instagram.

“God! Just biking through the Hamptons. It’s so beautiful,” Timberlake says as he ramps up his bike whistle. Then, Fallon appears in the background, shouting “bro-biking” — and Timberlake joins in the chant.

The clip zooms out to show the buds zipping around on a quiet street, Fallon still taking up the rear. »

14 March 2017 7:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The South by Southwest Film Festival has awarded its top prizes to “Most Beautiful Island,” directed by Ana Asensio for narrative feature and to “The Work,” directed by Jairus McLeary and Gethin Aldous, for documentary feature.

Most Beautiful Island,” a New York-set thriller, is the directing debut of Spanish TV actress Asensio. “The Work” takes place at a group therapy retreat with convicts at Folsom Prison.

SXSW founder Louis Black, who came out despite being very sick, kicked off the show with a political statement: “You may like Trump, and that’s fine. … But most of you are engaged in a humanist battle for the soul of our country, and what you are doing is subversive, it is important, it is about bringing us together and not tearing us apart, it is about inclusion and not exclusion. It’s not about making films that sell popcorn, it’s about making films that save souls. »
