    “You know of course that we could never really be friends… Men and women can’t be friends, because the sex part always gets in the way.” That’s from the 1989 romantic comedy, “When Harry Met Sally.” But you already knew that. It’s a famous movie and a famous line, and in the 25 years since Nora Ephron’s classic swept the box office, people still love this hilarious and heartwarming tale of true friendship melting into true love.

    We saw Jersey Boys last night in our local movie theatre. It is the story of Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons, a singing group of the 1960s, and their rise to fame. It is an adaptation of a stage play. The movie is directed and produced by Clint Eastwood, which is eyebrow raising in itself because it does not seem like a typical Eastwood topic. I approached this movie with some trepidation because of the big, fat R after the title. Normally, I avoid R-rated movies; and I could not find out why it received this rating. However, the...

Orbit, who produced Brit’s track Alien, defended her auto-tune free warbling and insisted the pop princess had simply been warming up. ‘I’d like to affirm that ANY singer when first at the mic at the start of a long session can make a multitude of vocalisations in order to get warmed up,’ he wrote on Facebook.

Almost 3,000 audience reviewers rank the movie at 4.5/5 stars whereas a handful of professional critics give it a 12/100 score. Amazing the descrepancy until you read the critic's reviews. Clearly, we're dealing with a liberal leftest assessment of the material in the movie not...

To her, “Ant” was just a white photographer taking her picture. And she did not like that. Cumia liked being attacked even less. He called her lots of names -- the kind that would have gotten him fined had he said them on the air during his stint as a terrestrial radio star. But no N-bombs. That is all...

But Samson says it’s “based on 1994 sessions,” which would seem to indicate these will be old tracks goosed with new overdubs.

"Tapestry" launched Carole King's solo career in 1971, becoming one of the best-selling albums of all time. But what many don't realize about King's career is that the musician began songwriting for other artists in the 1960s, over a decade before she became a famous artist in her own right.
