UTG LIST: Individual Staff Members’ Best Of 2012 (Albums, EPs, Film)

Last week UTG brought you our Top 10 favorite albums of this year, as nominated and voted on by the staff. Well today we’re pleased to give you each member’s individual picks for the best of the year.

However this list does something a little different: not only does it count down the top 10 albums, but it also shows our favorite EP’s or films of the year. Certain staff members opted for just choosing films, but regardless our lists are not just comprehensive, but spanning a wide variety of genres as well. We at UTG like to think our …

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: November 9-11

I do not think it is a surprise to anyone that the new James Bond movie topped the charts this weekend. It has been met with stellar reviews and everyone everywhere wants to see more spy action from the iconic hero. Skyfall managed to displace the fantastic animated movie Wreck-It Ralph, which still made a ton of money and held on to a number two slot. You can see the full top ten list and how much the movies made after the jump.

MOVIE REVIEW: Skyfall

Movie: Skyfall
Director:
Sam Mendes

I’m not sure if this is a minority opinion, but I’ve often considered the Bond franchise to be a rather divisive property. For everyone I know who loves the gadgetry, the intrigue and espionage, there’s another who resents the cheese and vainglorious posturing of the early days and the emotionless gloss of the latter ones. Granted, these complaints were largely put to rest following Daniel Craig and Martin Campbell’s brilliant reinvention of the franchise with 2006’s Casino Royale, and yet some detractors seem to linger – perhaps justifiably so following the largely lukewarm reception …

STREAM: Adele – “Skyfall”

It was confirmed within the last two weeks and tonight we have the premiere of Adele’s theme for the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall. Written with Paul Epworth, Adele’s signature elegance breathes larger-than-life qualities into this one, and I think it fits nicely alongside the other legendary themes in the Bond cannon. You can stream the single after the jump.

Skyfall hits theaters this November…

Preview of Adele’s “Skyfall” theme released

The theme song to the upcoming 23rd James Bond picture “Skyfall” may not be released officially till Thursday, but a short preview of Adele’s song was just released. The preview, clocking in at just under two minutes, recalls the older themes from the Sean Connery days of James Bond, and with everything that’s happening, people might just need a little old fashioned.

Adele to Sing Theme Song in Newest James Bond Movie

According to reports from TheFilmStage, it’s certain that British pop-star Adele will be the voice of the theme for the newest James Bond movie Skyfall. She apparently has been in Abby Road Studios with the composer for the film Thomas Newman recording a single song.

This choice makes so much sense, and I’m not surprised even in the slightest. The singer has some of the best pipes in pop music right now, and since she’s from where Skyfall is set (Britain in case you have never seen the first twenty-two movies), it’s a match that fits the spirit of England’s …

Daniel Craig Confirmed To Play Bond in Two More Films

UTG-staffer Dane Sager just read the headline and had heart palpitations. While this was suspected but not confirmed, I’m really happy to post that MI6-HQ has confirmed that Daniel Craig will reprise his role as legendary British spy James Bond in two more films following the upcoming movie Skyfall. This is really fantastic to hear, as I think that Craig has given the franchise a breath of fresh air, both as an actor and stylistically. While Quantum of Solace definitely isn’t everyone’s favorite Bond movie, I think Skyfall has some real opportunities for a fun ride.

For those who …
