Watchmen Cast Become the Washmen in New PSA!

Watchmen Cast Become the Washmen in New PSA! At this point, a new season of HBO’s Watchmen probably isn’t happening, at least not with Damon Lindelof at the helm. Lindelof confirmed earlier this year that he was officially bowing out of the series. Regardless, that hasn’t stopped him from revisiting the show for a special PSA to address the novel coronavirus pandemic. In order to encourage good hygiene during this stressful time, Lindelof rounded up several Watchmen cast members for a short v...

Nine Inch Nails Release New Albums Ghosts V: Together & Ghosts VI: Locusts For Free

Back in 2008, right after parting ways with longtime label home Interscope, Nine Inch Nails released Ghosts I–IV, a quadruple-album of ambient instrumentals described by Trent Reznor as "a soundtrack for daydreams." It marked the beginning of a new phase of NIN, with Reznor operating outside the traditional rollout cycle and outside the rock radio … More »

Watch the lovely trailer for Soul, the new film from Pixar

My only complaint about Pixar's new film Soul is that is doesn't come out until June 19. Here's the description: Joe Gardner is a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious s...

‘Soul’ Trailer: ‘Inside Out’ Director Pete Docter Looks Inward Again in Pixar’s Latest

Onward may have underperformed at the box office this past weekend, but Disney is already looking ahead to the release of Soul, Pixar’s second original movie of 2020. Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey lead the film’s voice cast, and after a beautiful but vague teaser trailer debuted last November, we now have a better sense of what to expect when this film arrives this summer. Check it out below. Soul Trailer 25 years after Toy Story and 23 movies into their filmography, Pixar has finally made a f...

Thank Goodness for TV Superheroes

Superhero movies have become the easiest way to make a blockbuster. The Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe have 31 released films between them, with at least a dozen more on the way. This glut of superhero cinema has burned out even some of the most tried-and-true comic book fans. While DC’s universe occasionally has a more adult edge, the MCU has bombarded viewers with family-friendly, epic storytelling for over a decade. Comic book fans wanting a more mature look into w...

Sampling culture: How has it evolved and how much of modern music uses samples?

Sampling has developed as an art-form in itself and laces genres and artists through evolving patchworks of music; but when the paintbrush is sodden in legal and ethical questions how does it prevail and where does it stand? The art of music sampling is a storied and mostly modern tale. It’s evolution is found in the essence of all autered creation: to take inspiration from the creators and artists who came before and wield that power to paint your own picture with the methodology and visi...

How Lil Nas X’s Grammy-Nominated ‘Old Town Road’ Was Made for 50 Dollars

“There are so many layers to the song,” Columbia Records chairman Ron Perry says of “Old Town Road.” Just scratching the surface of its beat alone uncovers the connection between a 19-year-old Dutch Internet producer and veteran industrial act Nine Inch Nails, who are now forever intertwined in pop culture — along with Billy Ray […]

If ‘Old Town Road’ Wins a Grammy, Will Nine Inch Nails Share the Award?

Nine Inch Nails, a banjo and Lil Nas X made unlikely bed partners in the genre-bending mega-smash “Old Town Road,” which included a track from NIN’s largely instrumental 2008 album “Ghosts I–IV.” But while Trent Reznor and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross receive co-producer/co-writer credits for having created the hit’s hook, don’t expect their names to […]

Trent Reznor Really, Really Hated Working on ‘Bird Box’

Last year, Bird Box became Netflix’s biggest hit movie, setting the streaming giant’s seven-day records and inspiring dangerous memes. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock, takes place in a post-apocalyptic world that has been overrun by monsters that cause people who look directly at them to kill themselves. For a movie that’s all about sight (or lack thereof), Bird Box would have to rely heavily on sound. But one of the key composers behind that sound, Trent Reznor, who composed the Bird Box ...

The Best Movie Music of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) Film may have started as a visual medium, but from its earliest days music has been used as a fundamental aspect of its presentation. From tack piano and organs to sweeping orchestral suites, through to modern electronic soundscapes and hipster-approved needle-drops, the soundtracks to our favourite films play an indelible role in our appreciation of these remarkable movies. Some use music as a fundamental narrative point, while others d...

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The 2010s will mark the decade when cinema as we know it started changing drastically. The movies themselves aren’t really changing, but the manner in which we get to see them is in the middle of a drastic overhaul. In some ways, it’s easier than ever to watch a movie. But along with that, it’s also gotten harder for movies to find their audience, let alone get made. Even so, the 2010s were full of movies that will stick with us for years...

Chris Evangelista’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) Narrowing down a top 10 list for one year is hard enough. An entire decade? It’s almost impossible. Almost. I hemmed and hawed my way through this task, debating with myself as to what titles would go where, and what titles would make the list at all. The bottom line: it was a great decade for film, and don’t let anyone claim otherwise. As of this moment, I am happy with this list. But check back in with me in a week – I may have changed ...

Hoai-Tran Bui’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

I went and graduated college during that time, and began to form a movie opinion of my own outside of the one the film classes would impose on me. And in my opinion, the last decade of movies was fantast...

Tasting Notes

Just some quick hits on my media diet of late... Television Watchmen - I was skeptical; who was really hankering for a sequel to the Watchmen graphic novel? I may be biased because of my general distaste for sequels, but I gave the series a shot, and it's steadily been chipping away at all my reservations about the show. It hits a lot of "prestige TV" notes and starts off by just dropping you into a world that isn't quite familiar (even if you've read the comic book). A lot of it still feels ...
