2 March 2015 1:19 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Whiplash is many things: intense, inspiring, riveting; and a story of obsession and frustration that features two knockout performances. It’s no secret we here at Sos are big fans of the film, which nearly cracked our list of the ten best movies released in 2014. By now, most cinephiles have had a chance to see the brilliant sophomore effort from director Damien Chazelle, but not too many people have seen his 18-minute 2013 short film of which it is based on. In order to secure financing for his Black Listed script, Chazelle directed an 18-minute short film version for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival which went on to win the jury prize in its U.S. Fiction category. The win helped land him $3 million in cash to go on to make what would later became an Oscar winning hit. Now with the Blu-ray release, the short is finally available to watch. Enjoy! »

Tyrese Gibson to Lead 'Desert Eagle' Action Flick at Universal Next

3 February 2015 8:10 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Just after we learned that Fast & Furious franchise star Tyrese Gibson was trying really hard to land the lead role in the eventual reboot of Green Lantern at Warner Bros. Pictures, the actor is heading to the studio that made the first adaptation of the DC Comics superhero for his next project.

The story follows two border patrol agents sent to investigate a drug cartel being operated out of a Native American reservation casino.
