A few musical cues and news today, so let's jump right in. Brit pop star Jessie J has recorded a new song for "Silver Linings Playbook," which takes the usually bland approach of literalizing the characters and themes of a film to a whole new level. Grammy Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren (nominated for six Oscars including Aerosmith's "Don't Want To Miss A Thing" from "Armageddon") has penned "Crazy About You." A movie about two people going through some personal pain that has affected their mental health -- and who fall for each other -- featuring a song called "Crazy About You"? Genius.

There’s an argument – and it’s an argument that this writer subscribes to – that ever since “The Sixth Sense” each of M.

So that being said, hands up if you’re excited for “After Earth”!

Ah, ye olde "scheduling conflicts," a catch-all excuse usually utilized to cover up more nefarious frictions between creative types, but in the case of "The Hunger Games," it seems to be the real deal.
