The Voice Top 8 Performance Recap: Which Singers Aced Their Semifinals?

The Voice Top 8 Performance Recap: Which Singers Aced Their Semifinals?
Since we already pretty much knew that The Voice was heading for a Chloe Kohanski/Addison Agen showdown in next week’s finals, there was nothing to do during Monday’s performances by Season 13’s Top 8 but sit back, chillax and enjoy. With last week’s elimination of Ashland Craft and Shi’Ann Jones, the likelihood of a sonic train wreck was greatly reduced. And the remaining singers were ordinarily all, even on an off night, decent. Which of them stood out, though, solidifying for themselves a place alongside Chloe and Addison in the finals? Read on; we’ll discuss.

Watch: The Voice's Addison Agen Reworks a Britney Spears Classic
The Voice’s Addison Agen is feeling “lucky.”

The 16-year-old Indiana native, known for her uniquely soulful voice, closed out Monday night’s Top 10 performances with a stripped down version of “Lucky” by Britney Spears wearing just a white t-shirt and jeans on a bare stage. Though Agen said she related deeply to the song, she admitted that she had never been a big fan of the pop superstar prior to the performance.

“It was a complete shock to me that I even sang this song,” Agen told reporters after the live show. “It wasn’t expected at all. I

The Voice Top 11 Performance Recap: Songs in the Key of Life or Death

Upon hearing that The Voice‘s Top 11 would be performing songs suggested by viewers, I thought, “Hey, at least we can’t do any worse than Miley Cyrus assigning ‘Delta Dawn’ to Ashland Craft or Adam Levine sticking Adam Cunningham with ‘Against All Odds.'” And who among us hasn’t said to themselves, “No, no, no, don’t give so-and-so that song, give them this song!” then added for emphasis, “Jeez, why would you be so cruel to a member of your own team, Coach?!?” Personally, I wanted to hear Chloe Kohanski try something from the Sia catalog, Noah Mac rock Franz Ferdinand,

‘Literally, Right Before Aaron’ Trailer: Justin Long Goes To Cobie Smulders’ Wedding

For quite some time Justin Long has been the face of the middling romantic comedy genre. The actor has led a string of relatively low-profile films about down on their luck dudes pining for lost loves and manic pixie dream girls (“Going The Distance,” “A Case Of You,” “Comet”). But while Long-fronted pictures haven’t always fared well (“Comet” was at least interesting), he has mostly managed to remain a welcome, if quantifiable presence, thus giving us reason to remain hopeful for his upcoming dramedy “Literally, Right Before Aaron,” which pairs him with the delightful Cobie Smulders.

Tribeca Review: ‘Literally, Right Before Aaron’ is a Lame-Brained Rom-Com

It’s hard to imagine Literally, Right Before Aaron existing without The Graduate as a template. Ryan Eggold’s lame-brained paint-by-numbers romantic comedy relies a little too heavy on functioning as homage to the Mike Nichols classic. The story is one we’ve seen a thousand times before: a white heterosexual guy who barely gets by and is still finding himself in his late 20s (or so) struggles to get over the pretty girl that’s moved on. (500) Days of Summer at least told the same emotionally-charged story with its own gusto. Here a non-linear attempt is made with an obnoxious variable aspect ratio device: “present day” scenes take place in letterboxed scope, while moments in the past are full frame. Perhaps it’ll look cool on VOD.

Justin Long stars as our would-be white guy hero Adam who is still nursing a break-up with Allison (Cobie Smulders) who recently

10 excellent Joni Mitchell covers: James Taylor, Led Zeppelin, and more
Though Joni Mitchell's official website gave us a heartening update about the fact that she'd reportedly slipped into a coma, it's hard not to think about how singular Joni Mitchell's contributions are to the world of popular music. We've rounded up ten of the best covers of her work.  1. Crosby & Nash, "Urge for Going" This early Joni track would later appear on her "Hits" package, but it was originally just a tune that Judy Collins turned down. Here, David Crosby and Graham Nash whimdically trill it. 2. Judy Collins, "Both Sides Now" A signature track for Judy, "Both Sides Now" sounds as good with her chirp as it does in Joni's mournful soprano. 3. Led Zeppelin, "Woodstock" There's no song in Joni's catalog like "Woodstock" with its meandering recollection of the '69 rock festival and the energy around it. Led Zeppelin shreds it with this cover. Nice to see that

10 Producers to Watch: Campbell-Grobman Films

10 Producers to Watch: Campbell-Grobman Films
Friends Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell came together as producing partners in 2011 as Campbell-Grobman Films after working as exec producers to help set up films such as Lionsgate’s “Leatherface 3D” and Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy “A Case of You,” which stars Justin Long, Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser.

Grobman also was an exec producer on the Michael Shannon-Chris Evans crime drama “The Iceman” and James Cox’s indie dramedy “Straight A’s,” both of which co-star Campbell.

The duo scored with 2013’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” which took in $47 million worldwide.

But don’t label them as horror queens.

“We’ve done a lot of different things,” says Campbell, whose acting credits include “Drive Angry,” “The Mechanic” and a fair amount of genre. “We were nominated for an Emmy for (documentary) ‘Brave Miss World,’ ” she adds, and their list also includes exec producing duties on “She’s Funny That Way,

Sienna Miller Joins the Clint Eastwood Drama 'American Sniper'

Sienna Miller Joins the Clint Eastwood Drama 'American Sniper'
Sienna Miller is in talks to star alongside Bradley Cooper in American Sniper, which is now being directed by Clint Eastwood after Steven Spielberg bowed out in August.

The project is based on the memoir of the same name written by Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle, who has the most confirmed kills of any sniper in U.S. military history. Sienna Miller is playing the soldier's wife, who is raising his kids while he is off fighting overseas. Clint Eastwood reportedly spent the past week deciding between Sienna Miller and Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World) for the role. Kate Mara was a contender for the role, but she was forced to drop out after signing on to play Sue Storm in The Fantastic Four.

Jason Dean Hall (Paranoia, Spread) wrote the adapted screenplay, with Bradley Cooper, Andrew Lazar and Peter Morgan producing. Shooting is scheduled to begin next month.

"A Case of You" is a Case of Familiar Cliches Working Out

Facebook has changed the way people meet one another and how we learn more about people shortly after departing from their company. “Facebook stalking” has become a common enough of a concept that we now have a romance based on that very concept: A Case of You. While everything about it is pretty obvious after the first 30 minutes, from the conflict to the resolution, it still has enough charm and a few good performances to make it worth watching. Director Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy doesn’t have a whole lot of comedy, but its sincerity and cast (Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood, Sam Rockwell, Busy Philipps, Peter Dinklage, Brendan Fraser) give it some heft.

The 10 Greatest Losing “Best Actress” Oscar Nominees (Of the Past 10 Years)

The Oscars are uncomfortably close. We’re less than three weeks away from the big moment where Judi Dench will (hopefully) cackle menacingly as her Notes on a Scandal costar Cate Blanchett picks up a second statue. “You’re a vampire!” Cate will holler from the stage. And I’ll jump into the TV.

The point is it’s time to think about actresses in a big way. Today’s topic: the 10 greatest losing Best Actress nominees of the past 10 years. Forget “winning performances” like Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side or Reese Witherspoon in Walk the Line. These are the runners-up whose work also deserved formal, fabulous recognition. (Keep in mind I’m not necessarily saying these actresses should’ve won, but I will tell you who they were up against.)
