Life on the road can be tough for a musician. Faced with constant rejections from venues, friends and lovers, some musicians are also forced to face off against tour managers that have rather disturbing personality traits. For one musician, the best way to deal with all of this, is to simply accept it, and move on with his career - no matter who he offends along the way. His obsessive germ phobia doesn't help. Singer Jack Antonoff and the members of his band, Bleachers, give a little bit of insight into the life of a touring band, blurring the lines of reality and comedy.

There are some great animated movies due to come out in the future, but could Christina Ricci's 'The Hero of Color City' possibly be the best kids' movie of 2014?
There’s a whole lot of upcoming animated movies which we’re excited about. The Incredibles 2, Cars 3 and Finding Dory are just a selection looming on the animation horizon that have got us more excited than kids at Christmas, but it just feels like the release dates are soooo long away. We need some kind of animated fix, stat!
'The Hero of Color City' is due out in October 2014
Fortunately, we’ve just seen the trailer for ‘Hero of Color City’, starring Christina Ricci and Rosie Perez, and it looks like it could help us to pass the time. You know what, scrap that, it looks like it may even be the best kids’ movie of the entire year! It looks freakin' ace! Basically, each night when Ben goes to sleep his crayons burst into life in their very own city of color. But when Ben turns off the light without finishing his night time artwork, the unfinished drawing threatens to block the source of their color meaning the crayons must set out to save their city before it fades into colorless obscurity.

Forget 'Toy Story': prepare to emit a hearty bellow of "Hurrah" as your real childhood friends are brought to life.
Ever seen a crayon with eyelashes? You will have after you've watched the brand new trailer for kids animation The Hero of Color City, a hot new movie with a rather unique premise. The visual equivalent to giving your kids E-numbers, the imaginative and - some might say - psychedelic action adventure is drawing (sorry) steadily nearer to its official release in fall.
You Can't Afford To Miss '...Color City': The Breakout Children's Film Of 2014.
Dubbed "An unforgettable adventure about finding your true color," the film follows a pack of crayons who leap out of their box when little Ben is asleep and head through a magic portal to the wondrous City of Color. There, they socialise with other colors and revel in the unending, multi-hued joy of their existence.
Ben is a young boy who, like any other kid his age, loves to spend his time coloring his carefully constructed crayon drawings. However, much unlike any other's crayons, Ben's come to life every night when he's asleep and venture into their crayon box world of rainbows and vibrant adventures. One night, their multihued fun is threatened by two brutal unfinished drawings named King Scrawl and Gnat, who plan to drain the color from the city by blocking their rainbow waterfall. Determined to stay bright, the crayons embark on a mission to save themselves from a lifetime of black and white - the only problem is, they have to rectify the blockage before Ben wakes up in just a few hours' time. Can the crayons restore their chances of staying colorful in time? Or will they be doomed to dullness forever?

This film proves that all the right ingredients don't necessarily make a movie work. Even with top-drawer filmmakers and actors, this dramatic thriller simply never grabs our interest. It looks great, and everyone is giving it their all, but the story and characters remain so badly undefined that we can't identify with either.
The story's set on the US-Mexico border, where a slick lawyer (Fassbender) known as "the Counsellor" has slightly too much going on in his life. He has just proposed to his dream woman Laura (Cruz), while he's planning to open a nightclub with Reiner (Bardem). For extra cash, he's organising a massive cocaine shipment with Westray (Pitt). And it's this drug deal that goes wrong, creating a mess that engulfs Reiner and Laura, as well as Reiner's shrewd girlfriend Malkina (Diaz). As his life collapses around him, the Counsellor scrambles to salvage what he can, even as he realises that it'll be a miracle if anyone survives.
There are problems at every level of this production. McCarthy's first original script is simply too literary, putting verbose dialog into the actors mouths that never sounds like people talking to each other. Fassbender and Bardem are good enough to get away with this, but Pitt and Diaz struggle. Both Fassbender and Cruz bring out some wrenching emotions in their scenes, but their characters are never much more than cardboard cutouts. In fact, no one in this story feels like a fully fleshed-out person. And the little we know about each character makes most of them fairly unlikeable.

'The Counsellor' tells the story of a naive lawyer who holds the belief that dabbling in drug-trafficking is the best way to earn a little extra cash. However, that dabbling evolves into full-blown dealing which consumes his life and infects with all the corruption, betrayal and pain he thought he could avoid. Now with some seriously ruthless criminals on his tail, he begins to realise that there is nothing that these people will not do to get what they want and the odds on his life begin to get higher and higher. Unless he can work out who his friends are, he has no hope of returning to his normal life, but in a world where disloyalty affects everyone's relationships, he begins to wonder if he really has anyone there for him at all.
Directed by the triple Oscar nominated Sir Ridley Scott ('Prometheus', 'Gladiator', 'Alien'), this high-energy, gritty thriller is all about corruption and how smalls mistakes can lead to major consequences. The screenplay has been written by novellist Cormac McCarthy ('No Country for Old Men', 'All the Pretty Horses') and it features an exciting, star-studded cast ensemble. It is set to reach UK cinemas everywhere on November 15th 2013.
Franklin Franklin is a wig-donning, Swiss wannabe loner who lives alone in a small apartment having previously lived with his mentally deranged brother Bernard. He's not the only eccentric character at the complex, however; his wacky neighbours include the Liquor store worker Tommy Balls, Tommy's herpes ridden girlfriend Rocky, the beautiful Simone and the ill-tempered Mr. Allspice. One day, Franklin finds himself in a spot of bother when he accidentally murders his landlord Mr. Olivetti when he pays him a visit about the rent (of lack of it). In an attempt to cover up the homicide, he clumsily stages it as a suicide, which the cops become very suspicious of. Things don't get any easier either, as his Franklin's brother dies suddenly from a brain tumour and he ends up getting badly beaten in the street. Will Franklin find that future that he dreams of? Or will his tedious life gradually spiral further out of control?

Relentlessly quirky and strange, this pitch black comedy manages to combine its outrageous silliness with some surprising emotional resonance. Swedish filmmaker Akerlund (who directed Lady Gaga's Telephone) keeps the film's pace snappy as it lurches through a series of crazy situations that aren't remotely believable. But the starry cast manages to hold our interest.
Everything centres on a run-down apartment complex in Los Angeles, where Franklin (Lucas) lives in his dumpy flat, dreaming of someday moving to Switzerland to play his alpine horn in the mountains. Clearly unhinged, Franklin desperately misses his brother Bernard (Marsden), who went away but still sends him a daily audio-tape message. Then on the first day a tape fails to turn up, Franklin's whole life starts to unravel, starting with the fact that his landlord (Stormare) is lying dead on his kitchen floor. Franklin's attempt to get rid of the body draws the attention of two detectives (Crystal and Koechner), who start quizzing the neighbours (Knoxville and Caan). But this is only the start of Franklin's big adventure.
The story is structured as a series of wacky set-pieces set apart by luridly colourful flashbacks and fantasy sequences that fill in the back-stories for each of the characters. As a result, everyone on screen bursts with personality as well as motivations for everything they do, which makes watching them a lot more interesting than we expect. Crystal and Caan emerge as the most engaging people on screen, but even nuttier characters like Lundgren's "Brain Brawn" pop psychologist are fun to watch. By contrast, Lucas gives Franklin an eerily blank face: this is a man who still hasn't figured out who he is.

The first major Latin American group to emigrate to the American mainland, Puerto Ricans in the States number about three million today, though ignorance of where they're from and what they're about is endemic. To illustrate this ignorance in her documentary Yo Soy Boricua, Pa'que tu lo Sepas!, Rosie Perez tells a story about being asked while she was in college where Puerto Rico was. Thus the reason for her film - which she co-directed with Oscar-winner Liz Garbus - which mixes Perez family history with that of the island and its people in general. It's sort of an elaborate home movie mixed with social studies, but an impressive effort, nonetheless.
