If there's one movie that seemingly everyone is talking about, it's "Zero Dark Thirty." "Hurt Locker" director Kathryn Bigelow's harrowing account of the ten-year chase for Osama Bin Laden. The film is quickly accumulating a number of significant critics' prizes, topping many year-end lists and generating a deafening amount of Oscar buzz. One of the unsung heroes of "Zero Dark Thirty," though, is composer Alexandre Desplat, who creates the richly moody score for the film, which really comes into play during the movie's last act, swirling during the raid on Bin Laden's compound like some low-lying fog. And today, we are thrilled to give the first listen to this unique and atmospheric score.

A bounty of "Django Unchained" material was unveiled last night. Not only did a new trailer arrive, but the soundtrack details for the movie debuted as well. And as folks already know, Quentin Tarantino isn't shy about referencing his influences, and his films tend to be gateways to discover all kinds of genre fare.

While it looks like Frank Ocean didn't make the cut, the full tracklisting for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming "Django Unchained" once again reveals a director who isn't afraid to liberally borrow from his influences. With music from "Two Mules For Sister Sara," Klaus Kinski's "My Name Is King," Sergio Corbucci's original "Django," early '80s Gene Hackman/Nick Nolte flick "Under Fire" and even a reprise of a song we heard before "Kill Bill Vol. 1," it isn't to say there aren't any surprises.

But for this writer, December can't pass without sitting down and watching Kevin McAllister survive the holidays from the hapless bandits, Harry and Marv.

Music rights are complicated, and as such, often official soundtrack releases don't include all the songs that are featured in a film. And so it goes for David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook." While the official disc runs fourteen tracks and includes key tunes by Stevie Wonder, Dave Brubeck, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and more, the movie features even more.
