It's been six years since Cameron Crowe's disappointing "Elizabethtown" but if 2011 goes as planned, it should mark one helluva comeback year for the director. With three movies slated to hit before the end of 2011, he's never been busier. His Elton John/Leon Russell documentary "The Union" recently opened the Tribeca Film Festival, he's got "Pearl Jam Twenty" coming in September and he'll cap off the year with the sure to be Oscar contending "We Bought A Zoo."

That’s right, 2010 is already in our rear view and we’re looking far, far ahead into 2011. If 2010 was the year of audiences rewarding original, smart blockbusters (“Inception”) and punishing glossy, but empty big-budget tentpoles (“The Tourist,” “Tron: Legacy”) the new year will find studios hoping once again that comic franchises and sequels can bring in the big bucks. No less than five comic-book movies are on the way with “Thor,” “Captain America,” “Green Lantern,” “Green Hornet” and “X-Men: First Class” all swinging into theaters, while tried-and-true franchises get sequels with “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” “Transformers 3,” “The Hangover 2” and “Sherlock Holmes 2” among the films looking to bank on previous successes.

Features "A Lot Of Eddie Vedder, A Lot Of Neil Young"A former Rolling Stone journalist and pop obsessive, few filmmakers have ever used popular music quite as effectively and prominently as writer/director Cameron Crowe. Films like “Say Anything,” “Singles,” “Jerry Maguire” and “Almost Famous” became as widely known for their carefully curated soundtracks as for the films themselves, and as the director gears up to shoot his latest effort, "We Bought a Zoo" early in the new year, it looks like we can expect another batch of songs to carry us through the film.

It's perhaps not hugely surprising, considering we started as a blog focusing on the place where movies and music meet, but we have a real affection for much of Cameron Crowe's work. A former Rolling Stone journalist, and pop obsessive, few have ever used popular music quite as effectively, especially as the background of top-quality bittersweet comedies like "Say Anything," "Singles," "Jerry Maguire" and "Almost Famous."
