'Michael Jackson's This Is It' Has Stiff Competition In Best Rock Doc Race

23 October 2009 9:07 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

At this stage, a clearer picture is coming together about "Michael Jackson's This Is It." Using a combination of rehearsals, fly-on-the-wall meetings and proper performances, it shows the once-unstoppable pop star gearing up for his big career comeback using some of his most beloved hits (and sending a message about hope and humanity in the process).

A great music doc is made up of a combination of signature moments, incredible performances and an ineffable something that can give the fan sitting on the couch that same twinge of electricity you get standing three feet from a sweaty lead singer in a packed stadium, or that awkward cringe you get seeing your favorite rock star fall apart on film. In his prime, Jackson had that magic (both kinds, unfortunately) when he took the stage, and we'll find out for sure next week if he still had it near the end of his life. »

Review: ‘It Might Get Loud’

18 September 2009 5:21 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Three generations of rock guitar virtuosos; Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, The Edge of U2, and Jack White of The White Stripes sat down together in January of 2008 to discuss their careers, influences and techniques. Documentarian Davis Guggenheim brought his cameras to this summit and the result is It Might Get Loud, an affectionate documentary that the many devotees of these performers will savor. You don’t have to be a rock scholar to enjoy this examination of three gifted artists and appreciate their insightful assessments about their own creativity and musical impulse. It Might Get Loud is more about the character of these musicians than the music itself but it’s careful not to leave out an occasional impromptu jam.

The Edge demonstrates his techniques while occasionally talking about his Irish roots and how he was musically inspired by his country’s political violence. He revisits the Dublin high »

Bobby Brown: Whitney Houston and I Corrupted Each Other

14 September 2009 1:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As Whitney Houston bares her past troubles to Oprah Winfrey, ex-husband Bobby Brown adds his side of their tragic story, saying both were to blame for their tumultuous relationship. "I think we corrupted each other," Brown, 40, tells The Insider. "I don't think she hurt me or I hurt her. I just think we had a 14-year marriage that had its ups and downs and not many people understood it." Brown says he used "an awful lot" of cocaine - "a powerful drug," he notes - starting after his marriage to Houston in 1992. "I think I was bored," says Brown, who »

Keanu Reeves ‘Sparhusen’ Headlines My Damn Channel’s Fall Lineup

13 September 2009 11:28 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

There's a lot of news to digest here, so let's start with the highlights: Keanu Reeves is starring in a web series. It's called Spärhusen and is actually a spin-off of Ikea-backed Easy to Assemble. It's part of a 7-show slate of web series from My Damn Channel premiering October 8, 2009. You know the medium is growing up when we get news of not only another A-lister headlining a web series, but the fact that it's a spinoff of another web series. Keanu Reeves is starring in Spärhusen, a spinoff series about fictional Swedish rock band of the same name that despite oozing musical talent, never quite hit the Abba level. It actually came out of an episode of Easy to Assemble from last season. For the first season, Spärhusen is basically a Behind the Music look at the "in-studio tensions" from the recording sessions of the band’s 1972 single "Apples & Fish. »

We Need More Cowbell! VH1's Behind the Music Returns, But Who Deserves an Episode?

3 September 2009 12:00 PM, PDT | Pastemagazine.com | See recent PasteMagazine news »

Were it not for VH1's Behind the Music, a whole generation would never be able to answer the many haunting questions of modern music: Did Milli Vanilli really lip-sync their groundbreaking "Girl You Know It's True?" Why were the guys in Hootie and the Blowfish smiling all the time? And what the hell was with that bumblebee girl in Blind Melon's "No Rain" video?

It was with heavy hearts that fans of BtM watched a chapter of their lives end when the show was pulled to semi-retirement in 2002. »

Trailer: The Boondock Saints II

3 September 2009 12:55 AM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Somehow, someway, Troy Duffy has made a sequel to The Boondock Saints. Eleven years ago Duffy was being crowned the next Quentin Tarantino or Kevin Smith, an unknown who was plucked from his blue-collar bartending job and given a once-in-a-lifetime deal by the Weinstein brothers at Miramax to direct his noir crime/action movie. Duffy's band would be on the film's soundtrack and the man was given enough money to buy the bar he worked at. Every struggling wannabe screenwriter and filmmaker simultaneously wanted to hate him and worship at his feet.

And as they say on VH1's Behind the Music, that's when it all went wrong. Horribly, turn-your-head-away car crash wrong.

In a nutshell Duffy went Captain Ahab, alienating the studio, his close friends, his bandmates and the documentary film crew that captured his meltdown in spectacular fashion in the movie Overnight. Worse, Duffy pissed off the Weinstein boys »

2 September 2009 1:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Bret Michaels' career isn't over, and we're not sure if that's such a good thing.  Apparently rocking out has no age limits.  Anyway, the Rock of Love star and Poison frontman has gotten himself into another TV gig.  He won't have ladies lining up for his affections this time though, but millions of fans ready to hear him tell his tale.

Reuters reports that the VH1 iconic series Behind the Music is back on, and will soon be focusing on the journey of Bret Michaels.  It won't be for another month, but here's a heads-up on the upcoming show anyway.

Behind the Music: VH1 Sets Return Date of Superstar Bio Series

30 August 2009 5:36 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

After being out of production for nearly seven years, VH1's Behind the Music series is ready to take the stage once again.

Behind the Music first debuted in 1997. Episodes have presented profiles of musical performers; focusing on their backgrounds, their rise to fame and often the reason(s) for their decline in popularity. The show quickly became a staple of the cable channel and original episodes were produced until 2002. Reruns were aired for several years afterwards but eventually petered out in 2006.

As reported earlier this year, the popularity of a 2008 Behind the Music special, devoted to The New Kids on the Block reunion, inspired the series' return to production.

Of the revival plans, Jeff Olde, VH1's executive VP of original programming, said, "It felt like the time is right. There's all sorts of new artists on »

[DVD Review] Biography: Harry Potter Kids

29 June 2009 10:00 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Cable documentaries have always tread a thin line between informed reporting and tie-in fluff, and for the most part, A&E’s Biography has always been ahead of the curve (though I think that anyone who remembers the late 90s heyday of VH1’s Behind The Music misses it). As a result, their program documenting the rise to fame of the Harry Potter kids comes across as a sort of weird hybrid of styles, combining some actually interesting pieces of information with the sort of interviews and footage that you might expect to see in an E! True Hollywood Story about the films. But then again, some of that is probably unavoidable for any documentary program chronicling the lives of people not yet twenty years old, or the fact that no matter how well-produced it is, no movie tie-in show can never help but feel like just that: an ancillary product to the main promotion. »

Trailer for black metal doc Until The Light Takes Us

25 June 2009 12:29 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

There is no shortage of documentaries on the infamous Norwegian black metal scene, but it seems until now there has yet to be one that gathered together the figures that truly mattered on film, and got the key players in the movement to speak without censoring themselves. Filmmakers Audrey Ewell and Aaron Aites have pulled off the nearly impossible task of penetrating the inner circle of a very secular scene with their new documentary, Until The Light Takes Us. Moving from their homebase of New York city to Norway for two years, Ewell and Aites have not only put together what looks to be the most cohesive and fleshed out documentary on the subject, but have also made something that is much more beautiful to look at than it’s counterparts, which all seem to suffer from a Vh-1 Behind The Music asthetic.

Blu-Ray Round Up, May 5, 2009: ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,’ ‘Grease,’ ‘Saturday Night Fever’

5 May 2009 4:42 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Get on your dancing shoes before you hit the floor for the latest version of the toe-tapping Blu-Ray Round-Up, a special edition with three beloved flicks from the ’70s and ’80s with musical beats.

Only one (“Grease”) may be an actual musical, but people still remember the great soundtrack from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and “Saturday Night Fever” was all about The Bee Gees. All three titles were released on Tuesday, May 5th, 2009.

“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

Photo credit: Paramount Synopsis: “Ferris Bueller. Larger than life. Blessed with a magical sense of serendipity. He’s a model for all those who take themselves too seriously. A guy who knows the value of a day off. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off chronicles the events in the day of a rather magical young man, Ferris (Mathew Broderick).

One spring day, toward the end of his senior year, Ferris gives »

VH1 revives 'Behind The Music'

19 March 2009 10:02 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

VH1 has ordered ten new episodes of its documentary series Behind The Music. The series originally ran from 1997-2002. Last autumn, VH1 aired a 90-minute New Kids On The Block Behind The Music special. VH1 decided to bring the series back when focus groups found that it is so deeply associated with the channel that some viewers assumed that it had never stopped running, says The Hollywood Reporter.

VH1 resuscitates 'Behind the Music'

18 March 2009 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

VH1 is reviving its former signature series "Behind the Music."

The cable network is ordering about 10 new episodes of "Music," bringing back the iconic documentary program that ran for several years on VH1 starting in 1997.

Lil Wayne and Scott Weiland have signed on to participate, with the network near agreements with several other artists.

"It felt like the time is right," said Jeff Olde, VH1 executive vp original programming. "There's all sorts of new artists on the scene who have emerged and have these great stories. And there's other artists that we always wanted to do the first time around."

VH1 had a reminder of the show's popularity last fall when it aired a well-received 90-minute live New Kids on the Block "Behind the Music" special. The event showed the group's first public performance in more than a decade along with a "Btm" retrospective.

"We always hear about the show, »
