‘Atlanta’ References You May Have Missed, From ‘Rocky III’ to Nicolas Cage’s Dinosaur
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the “Atlanta” episode “Money Bag Shawty.”]

Atlanta” continues to blow us away week to week with its insight into today’s culture, brand of danger-comedy, gorgeous cinematography, and layers of meaning all packed into a half hour. Thursday’s “Money Bag Shawty” kicked off that episode’s tone with a direct reference to a viral video.

White Tears

In the spoof, a blonde white woman with the username “lilysmom_11” addresses the camera, distraught over her daughter listening to Paper Boi’s (Brian Tyree Henry) latest song on the radio. The mom proceeds to read out loud the song’s lyrics, which include profanity and liberal use of the N-word. As she becomes increasingly upset, she’s particularly disturbed by the rapper voicing a disdain for college and referencing Colin Kaepernick. She eventually breaks down crying, and later, Earn and his friends toast to her “white tears” for giving Alfred’s song even more exposure.

Rocky III’s “Eye of the Tiger” Performed by a Hardware Orchestra

The theme to Rocky III being played on a hardware orchestra is a little hard on the ears to be honest. It’s still impressive but what used to be kind of nice to hear with other songs is now becoming something that’s not quite as pleasant since the grinding quality of the hardware is a bit rough on the ears when you really listen. In some instances it almost sounds like the sounds that came when using dialup service in the 90’s. Obviously you’re not going to get the same kind of sound quality out of electronic hardware as you

The Best TV Soundtracks of 2017

  • Indiewire
Music makes such a huge difference when it comes to enjoying TV’s top shows, on a level that goes well beyond a theme song. Great composers create an aural language that’s as tangible and essential as the actors or sets on screen, aided by music supervisors who discover undiscovered tracks as well as essential classic gems —without which the show’s most powerful moments would have no impact.

Even the Television Academy agrees: For this first time, this year the Emmy Awards handed out a prize for outstanding music supervision. Susan Jacobs won the award for the “Big Little Lies” episode “You Get What You Need.”

There were so many shows that changed the way music was used on television this year — whether it was Tom Petty’s “American Girl” becoming a shout of protest, an obscure Elvis Presley cover becoming one of our favorite tunes of the year,

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?

The Surprising Reason Why “Eye of the Tiger” Became the Theme Song to Rocky III

The short version of why Eye Of The Tiger was created as the theme song to Rocky III was because Queen wouldn’t allow Sylvester Stallone to use Another One Bites The Dust. The longer version goes into a little more detail since Stallone still used Queen’s song as a temporary background when he delivered the song to guitarist Jim Peterik. When Jim, who’s been associated with some of the biggest names in rock and roll, heard that Queen wouldn’t allow Stallone to use their song he was immediately grateful as he first watched the montage that Stallone and given him

The Top Five Uses of the Song “Eye of the Tiger” in Movies

We all remember this iconic song from Survivor. When it hit in Rocky III we all knew that things were about to get real. Since that time the song has been used in a lot of different movies in different ways, usually as a type of parody to denote the seriousness of a situation no matter how comedic. It’s still easy to recognize and usually comes off sounding just as cool as ever no matter the situation it’s being used in. Here are a few films that have been used as a vehicle for Survivor’s most played hit. 5. Big

Wamg Ranks The Rocky Films

One of the most beloved film franchises in Hollywood history – and arguably one of the best – is the Rocky franchise. After the original came out in 1976, fans could not get enough of the Italian Stallion and his brilliant and sometimes painful journey from zero to hero.

This weekend sees the release of Chuck, the story of small-time boxer Chuck Wepner, who in 1975 went 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali, and became the inspiration that led a young writer/actor named Sylvester Stallone to write Rocky.

Not only was Rocky a box office success, it went on to win 3 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director for John G.Avildsen. It also led to 6 sequels that kept fans cheering for Rocky for nearly 40 years.

Clearly everyone has their favorite Rocky movie, but here is our ranking, in order of favorites, of the films in the Rocky franchise. So agree, disagree, or even better,

Mindy Newell Is Writing This During The Giants / Packers Game

  • Comicmix
The Crown Season 1

This is going to be a relatively unusual column today as I am frequently stopping to watch the New York Giants/Green Bay Packers wild card game. Right now there are 20 seconds left in the 1st quarter, the G’ints just punted, and Green Bay’s drive will start on the 45 yard line. The Giants should be up by at least one touchdown, but Beckham has dropped two perfect passes in the end zone – commentators Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are speculating that it’s because of the cold weather and although that’s possible, that’s not what I expect from a player of Beckham’s caliber. He made the All-Pro team this year. Anyway, the G’ints are up by a field goal (that’s three points for you non-football fans out there) and Green Bay has yet to put anything on the board.

Dangal review – crowdpleasing wrestling drama keeps its eye on the big picture

Bollywood’s drive to focus on daughters’ issues continues with this real-life tale of familial struggles that uses its sports-movie framework expertly

Bollywood’s three King Khans have adapted to changing times and mores by recasting themselves as protectors of the nation’s daughters. Action man Salman Khan played chaperone in 2015 blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan; Shah Rukh Khan provided therapeutic guidance to a mixed-up Alia Bhatt in last month’s Dear Zindagi. Here, Aamir Khan’s latest composes a study in flexibility around the real-life figure of Mahavir Singh, a champion wrestler turned potbellied clerk who secured his sporting legacy with a rethink on realising his girls Geeta and Babita had more fight in them than any male heir might have. As with most of this Khan’s crowdpleasers, it’s acutely attuned to wider realities: beyond the mat, the Singhs encounter superstition, child brides and institutional slackness, each sidebar reflecting a social struggle.

John Legend, Chrissy Teigen’s Embarrassing Moment Playing Charades on ‘Tonight Show’ (Video)
If there was any doubt that John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are the cutest Hollywood couple ever, their teamwork playing Charades on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” Friday crushed it. Pairing together opposite Fallon and guest Chelsea Handler, Legend had no problem scoring early when his wife wiggled out the song “Shake, Rattle and Roll.” Fallon then got on all fours to mime “Eye of the Tiger,” which Handler quickly guessed. Then it was Legend’s turn to act out “The Little Mermaid.” Teigen had no problem understanding his gesture for “little,” but the “mermaid” part, not so much.

Amy Adams Participates in Singing Whisper Challenge With Jimmy Fallon
Amy Adams’ work playing a communications specialist in her new sci-fi thriller Arrival is paying off! On Thursday, the Oscar-nominated actress visited The Tonight Show, where she participated in a musical version of host Jimmy Fallon’s “Whisper Challenge” game.

Adams wore headphones blasting music while Fallon sang the lyrics to “Eye of the Tiger” and she attempted to guess what he was singing by reading his lips.

“It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight,” Fallon sang to a confused-looking Adams.

“Something… for fashion?” Adams guessed as the audience laughed.

Fallon proved to be equally bad at the game when Adams sang, “Walk like an Egyptian.”

“Rolling like a chick machine?” the host guessed. When Adams laughed, he tried again, saying, “One day, chip machine?”

This Express piece quotes an Empire Magazine interview with Martin Scorsese’s long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker in which she relates how the original plan was to have Frank Sinatra’s original recording of My Way play over the end credits of modern gangster classic Goodfellas instead of the Sid Vicious cover that was eventually used.

Sinatra would never let Marty use his music,” explains Schoonmaker, “which is too bad because Marty may

Mike Huckabee is still paying for his failed presidential campaign.

Inside the Office of ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ Showrunner Nahnatchka Khan

Inside the Office of ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ Showrunner Nahnatchka Khan
Don’t call it clutter — it’s “placed clutter,” jokes “Fresh Off the Boat” executive producer Nahnatchka Khan, about her well-stocked office on the first floor on the Fox lot. “It’s so stressful doing a TV show week after week, that I think that when you come in you just want to be reminded of things that are fun,” she says. So her workspace — which serves as the hub for the “Fresh Off the Boat” writers — offers many clever toys to keep her colleagues entertained. Yes, there’s an actual writer’s block — it’s just a block of wood labeled “writer’s block” — on her coffee table. “We’re here to have fun and make comedy, so we don’t take ourselves too seriously,” she says.

The tiger poster is a keepsake from the show’s first season, when Louis (Randall Park) played in the “Mystic Tiger” basketball league.
