CD Review: TRON:LEGACY original soundtrack

It’s a cold, dark and mesmerizing world 28 years later on the game grid, so don’t expect any of the playfully lush themes that Wendy Carlos gave you geeks the first time out- unless you’re counting Jeff Bridges’ brief A Capella improv at the start of LEGACY. What you will get from electronica superstars-turned-masked composers Daft Punk is an icily epic sound that brilliantly matches the new, austerely Kubrickian imagery on thrilling display, while also delivering on the whiz-bang action pitched towards a young audience whose listening tastes have significantly evolved since the days of 8-bit Atari music- not that […]Read On »

With the American remake of the recent BBC series BEING HUMAN set to debut on Syfy on January 17, the cast and executive producers appeared today at the Winter 2011 TCA’s to talk about the similarities and differences between the two incarnations of the show. The basic premise remains: vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer), werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington) and ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) all share a loft together and try to get to the bottom of what it’s like to “being human.” “I would say if you’re a fan of the original, you’re going to see a show that starts much […]Read On »

While Conan O’Brien’s new TBS talk show CONAN has continued to impress in the ratings, while speaking to the press at yesterday’s TCA press tour, he reflected back on the whole Jay Leno/NBC situation in what should hopefully be the final word on the subject. In terms of Jay Leno (who we all know retired from THE TONIGHT SHOW, didn’t leave NBC and started a 10:00 pm talk show, that was canceled and then was responsible for Conan leaving THE TONIGHT SHOW and Jay taking over again), O’Brien says he doesn’t think much about it and has no interest in […]Read On »

At yesterday’s TCA session, George Lopez chatted about his TBS talk show LOPEZ TONIGHT, the actor-comedian-talk show host says he was happy to accommodate Conan O’Brien and his new talk show coming over to the network as his lead-in. In fact, he’s almost Zen about it. “I was replaced by cavemen on ABC,” says Lopez, referring to that network’s decision to cancel his sitcom THE GEORGE LOPEZ SHOW for a show about modern day cavemen. “To move an hour and bring in Conan – it’s nice to be at midnight and I was not unhappy. I’m here. He’s over there. […]Read On »

During today’s TCAs for Fox’s Studio Day, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER actress Alyson Hannigan commented on the recent news that BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER was going to be made into a feature film sans Joss Whedon. Needless to say, she isn’t too happy about it. In response to the question about would she like to crap on the movie, she responds: “A BUFFY [THE VAMPIRE SLAYER] movie without Joss, I would crap on that,” Hannigan told the press. “Joss was Buffy.” I guess that puts the kibosh on any guest appearance from Willow.

The last person you’d be expecting to star in a superhero movie would be comedian Seth Rogen. And the last person you would expect to be co-writing a superhero movie (with writing partner Evan Goldberg) would be Rogen too. Yet, on Friday, Rogen will make his superhero debut with THE GREEN HORNET, playing the iconic green-masked hero from the old radio serials who is given a modern-day facelift with comedy and crazy action. Think of it as SUPERBAD meets superheroes as Rogen plays Brit Reid, a wayward playboy and heir to his father’s newspaper empire. Realizing he wants to do […]Read On »
