Transcendence – April 17, 2014
So apparently when you give technology a mind and a personality, you’re toying with an apocalypse. Weird. But fascinating. Isn’t that, like, the formula for a Johnny Depp movie?
Lucy – August 8, 2014
Scarlett fights bad dudes with telekinetic powers and freakish strength without being weighed down by a love interest… this film will give new meaning to “chick flick” and it’s long overdue!
Transformers: Age of Extinction – June 27, 2014
Sure, I’m pretty burnt out on Michael Bay’s Transformers films, but Marky Mark and the high quality visual action might make this one worth seeing.
Maleficent – May 30, 2014
Hold up wait a minute put a little live action Disney in it. Sleeping Beauty is a classic, but it’s time we take a look at why Maleficent was such a heartless villain. Plus I get the impression this’ll have an awesome soundtrack!
X-Men Days of Future Past – May 23, 2014
I don’t care what you say, you loved Bryan Singer’s X-Men movies and you’re going to see this intense all-or-nothing showdown featuring some of Hollywood’s finest actors and actresses.
Godzilla – May 16, 2014
I can’t even form legible sentences on how intense and spine-tingling the trailer is. The computer generated imagery in this film will be first class. And I just really really love Aaron Johnson, ok? Every trailer for this is amazing.
(It’s a big improvement from past Godzilla films, that’s for sure.)
Our 5:40 Flashback featured Dolly Parton’s “Old Flames Can’t Hold a Candle to You” today on the KORN Morning Show.
Dolly, Dolly, Dolly (1980)
I requested the 35-year-old song specifically. Not because I’m Dolly fanatic, but because it was written by the mother of my all-time favorite pop star, Kesha!
Rosemary Patricia “Pebe” Sebert is a country songwriter from Brentwood, Tennessee, best known for this “first dance”-ish song picked up by Joe Sun in 1978. In 1980, Dolly released a cover and it shot straight to #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles.
Pebe’s eldest daughter, Kesha Sebert (ya know, Ke$ha?) has released three official albums and topped international charts since her first single, “Tik Tok” …with the help of her talented songwriting mother, of course.
On Kesha’s recently released EP Deconstructed she recorded her own version of one of her mama’s most beloved accomplishments. Those Tennesee roots are really startin to stick out! (Warning: this one’s kind of a tear-jerker)
Sidenote: After completing a rehabilitation program for an eating disorder, Kesha recently announced that she’s dropping the “$,” making a fresh start, and taking a new direction with her music – under her actual name, Kesha Rose. <3
