As a non follower its hard for me to imagine the excitement to be felt by so many at the announcement of the new film “Springsteen and I’, just looking at this clip does nothing for me at all- II suppose its similar to the kids who lined up for a Justin Bieber film- but just much older and less cute

By Alyson Camus | May 25, 2013

What I get from this short one-minute-and-half tease, is a feeling of togetherness expressed by all these people, who are all united under the same unconditional love for the boss.

The Clash 'Rude Boy', Reviewed (sorta)

By admin | December 25, 2012

By Helen Bach | May 31, 2012

By Helen Bach | March 21, 2012

Paul Dano Musical Inspirations

By Alyson Camus | March 1, 2012

‘Even if you’re playing someone in the 1700s in France, you might listen to hip-hop, if it’s an energy thing for the character. Or you can listen to what the character actually listened to.

By Helen Bach | February 29, 2012

Russell Crowe In 'Les Misérables', The Movie

By Helen Bach | February 25, 2012

By Helen Bach | February 20, 2012

Taylor Swift In Yet Another Les Mis Revival

By Alyson Camus | January 6, 2012

"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" Reviewed (More Or Less)

By Iman Lababedi | December 28, 2011

The entire Reznor/Ross score is electronic plus organic mayhem and is most effective at its most tense. Still there is nothing as brilliant as the walk across the Harvard campus in “The Social Network”.

'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' Reviewed

By Alyson Camus | December 27, 2011

There were so many people sniffing and weeping in the theater that the moviemaker should be a little ashamed to have exploited loss and grief so much.
