For anyone born in the last quarter century who wondered whether Paul McCartney's allotted two-and-a-half-hour set would be "too much" for the 70-year-old Beatle was justly put to shame Friday night.
We make a mistake when we brand the National as broody or emotional and dark. It's distinctly music of the New Sincerity, the artistic movement of our time.
These con-artists use their former connections to legitimate people in the industry as a way to lure the desperate, eager, young singer-songwriters into their web; promising record deals, tours, radio play, etc., for a price. How do I know? It happened to me.
As Kanye's latest album, Yeezus, invades our eardrums, it's a good time to reflect on his many, many head-scratching quotes. Yet buried under the rapper's bravado and considerable megalomania are genuine bits of career wisdom.
I recently watched the Donner cut of Superman 2. The original was so cheesy that even watching it when I was little made me think Superman was kind of not right for the screen.
The world of pop music has changed so radically in my lifetime that I am not clear how society determines what "pop" is these days.
It was California Proposition 8 that pushed us to make -- perhaps angered us to make -- The Out List in the first place. It airs on HBO, June 27th, the 44th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

Since selling Lucasfilm to Disney, Lucas has stated publically that he will be a "creative consultant" on the upcoming sequels. I do think the new, Disney-owned Lucasfilm wants to distance itself from the prequels, judging from its decision to cancel The Clone Wars, a show that just won an Emmy. Show More Summary
There are times at Bonnaroo when, in-transit from one show to another, you realize that small armies of people are everywhere. Then there are times when, as Alt-J's ragtag of spectators proved, all of the festival is in a single spa...
David Bowie took a 10-year hiatus with a new album titled "The Next Day," released last March. But now his international retrospective of an entire important career is at London's Victoria & Albert Museum through August 11. One hopes it will come to America.
People are drawn to zombies for a variety of reasons. For some, it's just good, untidy fun. If your marksmanship is spot on, you'll be rewarded with a splash of satisfying gore.
"Extraordinary how potent cheap music is," Noel Coward wrote in his play, Private Lives. It certainly makes a difference in Paul Andrew Williams' Unfinished Song,...
Demme returns to the paranoid thriller with Line of Sight... John Lasseter digs into his studies for Monsters University... Don't go in that Abandoned Mine......
As two queer female filmmakers, we were interested in doing a series of interviews with queer women in the TV world. Over the next month we will be chatting with amazing women who have penned and directed your favorite shows. We decided to start with writer/director Jamie Babbit.
Man of Steel, possibly the tallest of all the studio's summer tentpole blockbusters, broke box office records in its opening weekend, making over $125 million...
This season's extravaganza 3D epic, WWZ based on Max Brooks' 2006 novel and directed by Mark Forster opens with a traffic jam in Philadelphia: a...
If I've learned anything from my experience shooting our show, it is that I much prefer the retouched facsimile to the unvarnished original. I could never do their job in real life; tight-rope walking on a razor's edge of endless moral ambiguity.
Ed Pressman is putting together what looks to be a very interesting and controversial feature film about Joe Paterno. Brian De Palma is set to direct and Al Pacino will play the legendary yet ultimately disgraced coach.
It's no different in any industry. Hunger is the key component to innovation. How well that Hunger serves you, though, relies heavily on a recipe of awareness, obligation, and strategy.
