Disney In Depth Banner

The tale as old as time is timeless, and so is its music. With the recent release of Disney’s smash success Beauty and the Beast, let’s unpack the music box that is the film’s soundtrack. With all of the original tunes from the 1991 film, as well as some new additions, this new version blends classic and contemporary almost seamlessly, with a few exceptions.

Here is my review of the soundtrack for the 2017 version of Beauty and the Beast.

John Legend and Ariana Grande Sing Beauty and the Beast Title Song

In the days leading up to the release of Beauty and the Beast you’ll be seeing a lot of press junket material and reviews. To keep things short regarding the latter, it’s an okay movie on a narrative level, but the chemistry between the cast, the music, and production design are out of this world. Of course, since the film is so faithful to the original, you can expect contemporary covers of songs like “Beauty and the Beast.”

Disney has released the official music video for the title song, this time sung by John Legend and Ariana Grande. Check it out below.

La La Land

La La Land
Director: Damien Chazelle
Screenwriter: Damien Chazelle
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, J. K. Simmons
Distributor: Summit Entertainment
Rated PG-13 | 128 minutes
Release Date: December 9, 2016

There’s really no simple way to put this, but La La Land is one of those rare, unforgettable movie going experiences that will be talked about for years to come. And that doesn’t even sum up how good it is. Damien Chazelle‘s follow-up to Whiplash reminds us of why we go to the movies, and believe me, this is a movie that needs to be seen in a theater.

The film pays homage to the days of Hollywood where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers graced the screen with beautiful songs and elegant dances. But it is also a love letter to the luster and sparkle of Los Angeles, which attracts the hopeless romantics and the dreamers hoping to find love and reach for the stars, all the while learning that the city can also be crushing and unforgiving. In the end, Chazelle’s latest film is a true work of art that cannot be missed. Check out the full review below.

Now Summit Entertainment has released the second teaser, this time with Emma Stone at the mic singing the melancholic “Audition.” Check out the new teaser below.

La La Land starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling

Judging by the look of Damien Chazelle‘s (Whiplash) La La Land, you would think that the film took place in old time Los Angeles. The music and the fashion just ooze it. However, the film actually takes place in modern-day where a jazz musician (Ryan Gosling) and an actress (Emma Stone) are star-crossed lovers who deal with their daily struggles of trying to make it big in Hollywood by singing and dancing.

Now Summit Entertainment has released the first trailer for La La Land, and if you are looking for a break from blockbusters, then don’t worry about that exciting feeling that will course through your veins after watching the trailer. Check it out here below.

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

La La Land will be Damien Chazelle‘s follow-up to his Academy Award winning drumming drama Whiplash. But rather than be just another film about the gritty and sometimes demoralizing behind-the-scenes look at competitive jazz band, Chazelle’s upcoming film might have a lighter fare, as it will be a musical set in modern-day Los Angeles. It will star Crazy Stupid Love duo Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. The two have quite the on screen chemistry, having also appeared together in the crime drama Gangster Squad.

The film marks the third time that they’re paired together in a film. And now we are getting our first look at the two dancing against an L.A. backdrop as the sun sets. Check out the first image below.

Spike TV’s ‘Lip Sync Battle’ Renewed For Season 2!

Lip Sync Battle Mike Tyson

Spike TV’s biggest show ever, Lip Sync Battle, has just been renewed for a second season, after just four episodes. This viral sensation, which started out as a Jimmy Fallon bit, first on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and then on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, got its own show that premiered on Spike on April 2nd, 2015. That was quick, right? It is no surprise though. The show is mindless fun.

The game pits two celebrities (not B, C, or D-listers either) against each other for two rounds of songs. The audience picks the winner. It is not just lip syncing to songs that are sometimes incongruous to the person performing. The production goes all out, with costumes, props, backup dancers, and sometimes guests.

Check out some of those videos below.

Lip Sync Battle Jimmy Fallon vs The Rock Spike TV

Spike TV has turned one of Jimmy Fallon‘s best bits into its own show with Lip Sync Battle. Hosted by LL Cool J, the object of the game is to out lip-sync your opponent, with as much accuracy and excitement as you can.

Check out the videos below.

My personal favorite of all time, back on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, was when Joseph Gordon Levitt did “Superbass” by Nicky Minaj. That was magic.

And this new Spike show recreates this magic. Because who doesn’t want to see Dwayne Johnson lip-sync to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”?
