BBC Radio 1 Is Rescoring ‘Drive’ With Chvrches, Jon Hopkins, The 1975, SBTRKT, More

Remember how cool the soundtrack for Drive was? It was almost as cool as Driver’s jacket, all 80′s-chic electric goodness, and it was one of the biggest reasons audiences fell in love with the film. That CD is still in my car as I type this. Now, BBC Radio is giving something that was already great another go.

Radio 1 Rescores: Drive – Curated By Zane Lowe will feature music from The 1975, Baauer, BANKS, Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, Chvrches, Eric Prydz, Foals, John Hopkins, Laura Mvula, The Neighborhood, SBTRKT, and ZZC. All but one song is brand new. …

‘Top Five’ Trailer Proves Chris Rock Is Still The King Of Comedy

There are many icons in the world of stand-up comedy, but many of those who have been given that title are no longer among the living. There are only a few ‘greats’ still walking around in 2014, and of those even less are actively doing comedy in a live setting. Chris Rock has not toured for several years, but in his latest film he digs deep into his history to present a story that could very much be a reality for someone in his position.

Top Five introduces the world to a man (played by Chris Rock) whose fame has …

‘Fury’ Runs Over ‘Gone Girl’ on the Path to the Top

Despite the fact that October tends to be relatively packed full of horror films, Brad Pitt’s return to the silver screen has been met with an enormous response. Thanks to the $23.5 million that it had made on its opening weekend, Fury has knocked Gone Girl from its chart-topping position. Sales aren’t the only thing going for the WWII action film; on top of that, Rotten Tomatoes currently reveals that Fury has an 80% aggregate rating out of over 140 reviews.

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Fury’ Offers A Haunting and Thrilling Vision Of World War II

Film: Fury
Starring: Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman
Directed By: David Ayer

Fury is a violent film about bad men doing bad things in the heart of Nazi-occupied Germany at the tail end of World War II. It’s the complete opposite of a feel-good film, but it just might be one of the year’s best cinematic experiences.

The men who inhabit the tank known as Fury are not a group of people you would normally think to pair together. You have a fearless leader who’s seen it all, the war-worn young man clinging to the hope that God has good plans …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Stretch’ Is One Hollow Ride

Film: Stretch
Starring: Chris Pine, Patrick Wilson, Jessica Alba
Directed By: Joe Carnahan

In a scene from Joe Carnahan’s micro-budgeted Stretch that was dropped from Universal Pictures’ release schedule abruptly, David Hasselhoff questions the protagonist (who is his chauffeur) on if he is or is not a ‘punk-ass motherf****r.’ Yes that’s right, the main character then goes on to prove that he is not indeed a ‘punk-ass motherf****r’ for the rest of the runtime. Dealing with the basic thematic weight of any story about ‘becoming a man’ or ‘stepping up to the plate,’ Stretch tries to instigate laughs from depravity …
