A glimpse at Daft Punk’s soundtrack for Tron: Legacy

trrron

What better artists to soundtrack the follow-up to Tron, one of cinema’s most daring futuristic movies, than the robot affectionate duo Daft Punk? The influential house group was commandeered to deliver both the score and soundtrack for Tron: Legacy’s very colorful and SciFi environment. A challenging task, indeed, but from the looks of it, the French duo not only stood up to the task, but they’ve actually out done themselves! Just check out the two…

A movie about facebook – big fail. Trent Reznor scoring it – wait a minute?

Staring Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg - perfect seeing how they both name's end in 'berg'.

Staring Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg - perfect seeing how both names end in 'berg'.

Everybody has a facebook profile, some actually spend 12+ hours on it every day (we all know at least someone in this situation), heck a few people have even become billionaires thanks to this … social phenomenon. Guess I shouldn’t be so shocked then that someone thought about making a movie about facebook, about the…

Watch the trailer for Animal Collective’s new movie – ODDSAC

oddsac_header525

ODDSAC, a visual album by Animal Collective and director Danny Perez, is slated to premier tonight at the Sundance Film Festival, but while critics will have the chance to experience the full length of the acid trip, the rest of us will have to settle for the recently released 30 seconds trailer. As expected, it’s dark, eery and terribly confusing.

Al Byrne’s Radio Bile

While I was searching for this screenshot, I found out that this monster's name is "Barba", which I think we can all agree is a FANTASTIC name for a huge, terrifying mountain of stone and hair.

They say “familiarity breeds contempt”, but the more I hear that phrase, the more I dislike it. And not just because I’m a pathetic, desperate contrarian idiot – the phrase is wrong. Wrong. Familiarity doesn’t breed contempt. It breeds comfort, warmth, and eventually nostalgia. New things are awful, and potentially dangerous, and sometimes have questionable odours. Shun new things. Avoid them. Instead, you should wrap yourself in the comfortable blanket of the safe and familiar,…

Severed Ways: The Viking’s Answer to Napoleon Dynamite

Severed Ways Poster

Today, I’ll be reviewing Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery of North America, a movie whose long and drawn-out title should say it all, but in case it doesn’t, I’ll explain a little: it is a movie that follows the struggle of two battle-weary Norse warriors to rejoin the rest of the exploring party following a massive battle against Native Americans. My first impression after reading the back of the packaging was one of anticipation. After…

Contest: win Transformers Soundtrack + loads of Linkin Park merch!

Transformers O.S.T.

Topping this week’s Box Office, the second installment in the Transformers franchise, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” is one hell of a blockbuster. Being a big Transformers fan myself since the early cartoon days, I just couldn’t have left the theater not loving it, although I have to admit I kinda prefer the first one. If you saw it too, chances have it you weren’t just impressed by it’s multitude of stunning visuals, but also…

A collection of Bond theme song covers

James Bond

Currently, the hippest name out at the box office today, is none other then the new James Bond flick, Quantum of Solace. I got the chance to see the movie last week at the mall with some friends and it rocked our socks off. A bit too much gore and less charm from Daniel Craig (he only shagged just one woman after all..), but an awesome film, nonetheless. Anyway, I just stumble across a cool…

I found myself pleasantly surprised this morning when I found out Jack White and Alicia Keys will produce and perform the next 007 theme song, “Another Way To Die,” for the upcoming James Bond uber flick Quantum Solace. For the noobs out there, Quantum Of Solace, directed by Marc Forster and staring Daniel Craig as James Bond, will be released theatrically on November 7th 2008. The Keys/White…

Serj Tankian working on musical

serj_tankian-arsineh_khachikian

Oh well… I wouldn’t have imagined this could actually be happening but… impossible is nothing, right? So, according to spinner.com, SYSTEM OF A DOWN frontman Serj Tankian is collaborating with playwright Steven Sater on a musical called “Prometheus Bound”. How come a (or at least what should be a) heavy metal titan is doing a musical based on a Greek tragedy? Beats me. But, according to the same source, he has already finished eight songs…

Last night’s Oscars…

2008 Oscars

Were pretty fun. Wasn’t able to watch the event live, because of the whole time frame and stuff, it was something like 4 AM here when the Oscars aired. But I somehow managed to refrain myself from finding out the winners, as I find the element of surprise to create suspense and I love suspense; anyway I watched a rerun of the Academy Awards, a few hours ago. My general impression was somewhat favorable, maybe…
