Danny Elfman will score Justice League now

After Wonder Woman turned out to be so good I was kind of getting my hopes up that Justice League wouldn't actually be a total mess, but things are getting shaken up too much for me not to be worried. Obviously Zack Snyder handing...

[Editor's Note: This feature has been re-posted in honor of Power Rangers Month on Flixist] Pop culture is full of different kinds of media, but the ones with the most lasting power all do a very important thing: build mythos. "Mythos" is e...

Watch the fantastic "You're Welcome" from Disney's Moana

If you didn't get to catch Disney's newest dynamo Moana over the Thanksgiving holiday, Disney has helpfully (and awesomely) given a little preview. Although I didn't get to gush about it as much as I wanted to in our review, Dwayne Johnson'...

 
 
Review: Gimme Danger photo

Review: Gimme Danger

Iggy Pop and Jim Jarmusch sound like an unlikely pairing. One's the primal frontman of proto-punk legends The Stooges, the other's a mellow, measured indie auteur. But maybe there's something magnetic about their respective brands of Midwes...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
RIP David Bowie photo

RIP David Bowie (1947-2016)

David Bowie passed away yesterday after an 18-month battle with cancer. He was 69 years old. It's unreal to write those sentences, and it's enough to bring tears to my eyes, but David Bowie is dead. This is just days after the release of hi...

Review: Junun

How do you review a home movie with a great soundtrack? In a lot of ways that's precisely what Paul Thomas Anderson's Junun is. Anderson shot the footage earlier this year, chronicling a month-long recording session between Radiohead's Jonn...

Steven Universe's extended opening theme is the best

Over the last year, Steven Universe has blown up to magnificent proportions on Cartoon Network. It was confident enough in its long game to build a literal "universe" of well rounded characters, strong and more adult themes (as it fights ag...

Sam Smith to sing Spectre's title song

It's a time honored tradition that some big artist belts out a title song for a Bond film (except for the all orchestral opening to On Her Majesty's Secret Service). In the past the songs became massive hits, but Bond had had a slump in tha...

 
 
 
Jem Movie photo

Listen to the Jem movie's first original song "Youngblood"

I'm rooting for Jem and the Holograms. Firstly because there's a good chance this film will inspire other films like it, and we need more girl power band films, and secondly, I don't feel like we've got a good look at the film until now. T...

 
 
Horror major key photo

Listen to horror movie/TV theme songs redone in a major key

Some of the most iconic horror movie scores are creepy in and of themselves. Listen to "Tubular Bells" from The Exorcist and it recalls Linda Blair's scarred face and twisting noggin. Or listen to John Carpenter's theme from Halloween and y...
