The Heat
It's actually been a little while since we've had a good comedy at the multiplex (sorry "The Hangover Part III"), but Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are hoping to provide some laughs in a few weeks with "The Heat." The concept is simple and promising: the pair play mismatched Boston cops, and hell, we're still not sure what the actual plot is, not that it matters. But until we can weigh in on the movie, it looks like it'll be bringing an interesting batch of tunes to the table.

Eschewing the normal rock-doc mythmaking benchmarks for an intensely focused record of electro-rock outfit LCD Soundsystem’s final Madison Square Garden show, “Shut Up and Play The Hits” was indeed a hit when it first premiered at Sundance, as well as the one-night-only screenings held nationwide for the film’s release last month. However, most fans will be waiting for the Blu-ray/DVD release to catch up on what they missed at those quick screenings -- while fragments of the entire MSG concert were shown theatrically, audiences will be able to experience the whole thing on the home video release of the movie.

Few thought that when Beastie Boy Adam Yauch set up distribution label Oscilloscope Laboratories to put out his 2008 directorial debut "Gunning For That #1 Spot," it would turn out to be anything other than a vanity side-project. But in fact, the company has evolved over the past four years to become one of the most forward-thinking indie distributors around, having released films like "Dear Zachary," "Wendy And Lucy," "Treeless Mountain," "The Exploding Girl," "Howl," "The Unloved," "We Need To Talk About Kevin," "Bellflower," "The Messenger," "Exit Through The Gift Shop" and "If A Tree Falls," the latter three all turning out to win Oscar nominations for their trouble.

You wanted it, you got it. Whatever you think of this weekend's outrageous found footage party movie "Project X" there is no denying that the filmmakers provided a serious playlist to accompany the debauchery on screen. And while 13 of those songs were collected for the official soundtrack that was released earlier this week, we've heard from more than a few readers that they want to know every song that was featured in the film. Well, we've tracked down that list and here it is: all the music that rocked your eardrums in "Project X."

We can't remember the last time a concert movie caused quite as much excitement as "Shut Up And Play The Hits." But given that the film is a document of the final gig of James Murphy's LCD Soundsystem, one of the most acclaimed bands of the last decade, it's easy to understand. Despite reaching a point where they were more successful than ever before, the dance-punk-glam-rock group, Murphy decided to call it a day while still on top, breaking up the band after two sold-out gigs at Madison Square Garden last April.

It's beginning to look like this year's Sundance Film Festival will be very James Murphy-heavy. It was already announced that the LCD Soundsystem frontman/all around super-genius will appear in the comedy called, er, "The Comedy," with Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, of "Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" fame/infamy. And today (via Pitchfork) it was revealed that a full-on LCD Soundsystem concert movie, awesomely titled "Shut Up And Play The Hits" and centered around the band's final show at Madison Square Garden will also debut at Sundance as part of the out-of-competition "Spotlight" series. Somehow not being able to attend that final concert (despite all our scheming) doesn't seem like so much of a letdown anymore.
