While it aired, the first season of Westworld could hardly have been more closely scrutinised for clues, twists and Easter Eggs. Between sites like this one and lengthy Reddit threads, fans went through Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s sci-fi drama with a fine-toothed comb.

The result of that careful work by fans meant that by the game-changing finale, most of Westworld’s secrets had been laid bare. Many fan theories had been proved correct. Nods to the 1973 film and to Michael Crichton’s other famous theme park story had all been exposed. When the DVD and Blu-ray release arrived at the start of this month then, very few

Didi Hirsch’s Board Chair Chris Harrer presented Greenberg and his team with the Inspiration Award.

'Singles' at 25: Cameron Crowe on Making the Definitive Grunge Movie

'Singles' at 25: Cameron Crowe on Making the Definitive Grunge Movie
By the time Cameron Crowe made Singles in 1992, the 35-year-old director was already a decade into his career's second act. A former journalist for Rolling Stone, he'd pivoted towards the movies after adapting his book about going undercover at a Los Angeles high school – Fast Times at Ridgemont High – for the screen in 1982. And his directorial debut, Say Anything... (1989), proved that he had a knack for capturing teen spirit.

Crowe, however, wanted his audience to grow up with him, so for his follow-up movie, he turned his attention to twentysomethings.

Hear Chester Bennington's Emotional Tribute at Chris Cornell's Funeral

Hear Chester Bennington's Emotional Tribute at Chris Cornell's Funeral
On Thursday, Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington was found dead from apparent suicide at the age of 41. Bennington's untimely death comes on what would have been his friend and fellow rocker Chris Cornell's 53rd birthday.

Cornell, a groundbreaking musician beloved for his work with Audioslave and Soundgarden, died on May 18 when he committed suicide by hanging in his hotel room at the MGM Grand in Detroit, Michigan, following a performance with Soundgarden at the Fox Theater.

Bennington and Cornell were close friends during their careers, and toured together for Linkin Park's Projekt Revolution music festival tour in 2007 and 2008.

When the Soundgarden singer was laid to rest at a memorial on May 26, Bennington performed a powerfully emotional rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," and was joined by Linkin Park guitarist Brad Delson.

I had to post this photo simply because it says so much.  Pearl Jam and Soundgarden were two of the biggest purveyors of the Seattle sound that hit the world like wildfire in the 1990s.  Frankly this picture nearly sums it all up.  Here are two bands that were at the top of their game just when Lollapalooza was kicking off as a force to be reckoned with in the musical events industry.  Here are two bands that even appeared in the same movie together, Singles.  And here are two bands that were in their youth, shredding it up on

Chris Cornell Passes Away

Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden, tragically committed suicide after playing a show in Detroit, Michigan at the Fox Theater according to The Independent. As a member of Soundgarden, he helped usher along an era of music that helped rid the music world of some of the pretensions and phoniness the music industry and built at that particular time. With his work in Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog, and Audioslave, his legacy in the music industry will never be forgotten.

One aspect of his career that doesn't get much publicity is his work in film. With music in such films as Singles, Wayne's World, and Benny and June, his music helped fill the soundtrack of the movies of the 90's. One song he did, You Know My Name, helped usher in the modern era of James Bond as the lead in for Casino Royale.

The song itself is an underrated Bond movie classic theme.

13 Movie Trailers That Made Awesome Use of Slow Cover Songs

The only thing trailers love to use more than the "Inception" Braaaahm! is a moody, slowed-down cover of a popular song.

"Suicide Squad" is the latest trailer to take advantage of this trend, with its version of the Bee Gees' "I Started a Joke." Here are 13 more movie previews that make good use of great covers.

1. "Creep" in "The Social Network" (2010)

Arguably the trailer that started this trend, this preview uses a children's choir cover of Radiohead's song perfectly -- making us want to buy All the tickets to see the Facebook movie.

2. "Happy Together" in "The Great Gatsby" (2013)

Remember Filter? Lots of drives to high school were scored to this band, but Baz Luhrmann may have found an even better use for their vocal stylings in this kinda badass trailer for his 2013 film.

3. "Once Upon a Dream" in "Maleficent" (2014)

  • Pop2it
If you ever thought Pearl Jam's "Footsteps" needed a banjo and a little taste of Soundgarden, well then Jimmy Fallon has got a treat for you.
