You'll Fall in Love With Listening to Tegan and Sara's "Heartthrob!"
By: Sarah Messer
Tegan and Sara's 7th album release is far from what you would expect from this veteran duo. Most fans know their signature indie style that feature deep cutting/emotional lyrics. Hearthrob isn't necessarily a change from the style, but merely just a different point of view or maybe, dare I say, style evolution.
Fans of the beloved album, "The Con" may find themselves somewhat at a lost at first, but no doubt it won't be long before they come around. It isn't guitar filled tracks; its melodic, hip, pop meets hipster driven beats. Each song is unique with the only similarities being how every song keeps your toe tapping, or head bouncing with its catchy constructed tunes.
Some definite stand outs on this album after a first listen are "I Was a Fool," a power ballad that is sure to win over even the toughest critic. Lyrically, this song is a wonderful, honest, story and the listener can definitely feel what Tegan is trying to convey.
"Drove Me Wild," is one of the catchiest tunes on the album. Every time this song comes on, one can only picture people standing in front of their mirror or in their bed room jumping around singing with their make-shift microphone.
"Love They Say," is an acoustic-style ballad. Again, another lyric driven song, you start to really see that this whole album is very personal.
Last but not least, there's "Closer.," Obviously, this track stood out from the day it was released as the first single. It quickly became one of the most popular songs on the radio. This song speaks for itself.
Fall in love with this album today! You can pick it up at most places where music is sold or download it on Itunes. You can also order it here:

The "Sound of Music Live" Brings Beautiful Music To Your Holiday Season!
Broadway shows, Carrie Underwood, "The Sound of Music,"... these are a few of our favorite things! Naturally, we were thrilled when NBC announced that they would be airing a broadway version of this beloved story live on television and that it would feature Carrie as "Maria".
Millions of people tuned in to watch the action unfold live but now the magic and the music have arrived on Blu-ray and DVD for fans to watch over and over again. Songs that are part of our childhood like "Do-Re-Mi" and "My Favorite Things," are given new life by an incredibly talented cast that combines Broadway veterans with fresh new faces, all of whom are worth getting to know.
Though the story remains the same (A young governess falls in love with the father of the seven children she is caring for), the cast and venue is different than the movie that has stood the test of time. "The Sound of Music Live" features a great cast, beautiful music and a production that should make the crew proud! Share this wonderful story with your friends and family this holiday season!
You can pick up this musical event at most of the places that sell home entertainment or you can order on-line here: The Sound of Music Live!
The Masked Man Is Worth Riding With! "The Lone Ranger" Rides on to Blu-ray and DVD!
By Derek Samms
December 17th sees another classic franchise revived on Home Entertainment with Disney's The Lone Ranger, based on the old Western hero of radio and television fame. Audiences have been both worried and excited about this one. We all love the masked man, but we've also seen beloved characters and their stories ruined by studios looking for their next summer blockbuster. Fortunately, the talented cast and the bold creative team give us far more delight than disappointment.
Attorney John Reid (Armie Hammer) heads to the town of Colby on the still-under-construction transcontinental railway to do his part in bringing justice to the West. After a thrilling train ride in which he narrowly escapes murderous thief Butch Cavendish (William Fichtner) with the help of Tonto (Johnny Depp), a mysterious Comanche warrior, John is recruited by his brother Dan (James Badge Dale) to ride with his band of Texas Rangers and bring Cavendish and his men to justice. Things turn sour in a hurry, though, and the situation leads John-at the urging of Tonto-to don the iconic mask and go after the bad guys himself. What follows is an action-packed adventure somewhere between a classic Western and Pirates of the Carribean.
See a clip from the film below:
That's no surprise given the names behind this movie. The film is made by the same team that brought us the Pirates series: producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Gore Verbinski, and writing team Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, with the addition of screenwriter Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road). This band of storytellers has earned a reputation for sweeping adventures that are pure, popcorn-munching fun, and that's what they provide us again here.
Ranger certainly has a lot going for it. It's entertaining from beginning to end, thanks to an engaging story and a reliable cast. Tonto and brothel-owner Red (Helena Bonham Carter) bring the same level of quirkiness we've come to expect from Depp and Carter. Given the talent surrounding him, 26-year-old Hammer has a lot to live up to, but he dons the mask with aplomb, giving us a hero we can both root for and laugh at. Indeed, the antics of Reid and Tonto stand out in this picture, giving credit to the skill of both Depp and Hammer at playing the physical comedy. The chemistry between the two also works well-a necessity for such an iconic duo.
Their relationship might have been a concern for some moviegoers. When one thinks of Tonto, what comes to mind is usually not a respectful portrayal of Native American history and culture, but a cliched sidekick of few words. To improve on this for a new audience, Depp and the creative team made him the storyteller and a key player in the story, taking care not to make him a stereotype while still paying homage to the original character. It's a fine line, but they managed to walk it. Tonto doesn't stray too far into the silly or the sagely. Instead, he has enough flaws and insight to make him both mysterious and relatable, a very human sort of character that a lot of films fall short of when portraying Native Americans.
Here's another clip
There are still a few aspects critics will not like. For all the Union Blue on screen, we don't see much honor among the soldiers, and some of the dialogue sounds more like 21st-century America than the Old West. A number of characters, shots, and plot points seem familiar too. In fact, certain pieces of the story seem identical to elements in one of Elliott and Rossio's previous films (to avoid potential spoilers, we won't say which). But if the filmmakers are reusing old tricks, it's because they work, and this story has enough originality to avoid feeling formulaic.
In the end, The Lone Ranger is just what you want it to be. It's loyal to the classic series but still has a fresh take to keep it interesting. There's comedy, drama, action, beautiful Western landscapes, and several unforgettable sequences atop train cars. That classic William Tell Overture even shows up in the score a few times, just enough for you to enjoy it. The film may or may not be Oscar fodder, but it's the perfect treat for family fun this holiday season!
Bonus features on the Blu-ray and DVD combo pack include a blooper reel, deleted scenes, and multiple behind-the-scenes looks at the making of the movie. See a sneak peak BTS below.
