James Cameron is usually the type of filmmaker to keep to himself, but recently the brilliant mind who gave us Titanic and the best Terminator films opened up to fans via a Reddit AMA. There are dozens of headlines making the rounds about things mentioned, but we think the following tidbit is by far the most interesting […]

A Heavily-Accented Philip Seymour Hoffman Leads The ‘A Most Wanted Man’ Trailer

“It takes a minnow to catch a barracuda, a barracuda to catch a shark.” The voice of Philip Seymour Hoffman – weighty, measured, and thick with a German accent – dominates much of the trailer for A Most Wanted Man. He is only ever interrupted by a suspicious Robin Wright and a very post-Inception soundtrack; even when he is, its […]

Watch Breakdown Of Sanity’s Video For “Hero”

I personally feel that Breakdown Of Sanity are one of the most under appreciated metal acts out there right now. They’re based out of Bern, Switzerland, and last October they released a killer thirteen track album titled Perception. One of the singles off that album is “Hero,” and yesterday the band revealed the powerful music […]

LYRIC VIDEO: Yellowcard – “Today” (The Smashing Pumpkins Cover)

One of the covers on the album is by Yellowcard, and they recorded their version of The Smashing Pumpkins‘ hit single, “Today.” Less than 24 hours ago Fearless went ahead and […]

The Summer Set’s Bassist Covers Ryan Adams
