A new documentary, new tour dates ... a new album?
For a few weeks now, the original members of the rock band L7 have been teasing a possible reunion with the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund a planned live performance documentary about the band called L7: Pretend We’re Dead. Yesterday, the original members of L7 announced officially that they are reuniting to play a pair of shows this year … with the promise of a full tour to follow. All of this news is fairly new so there aren’t much details about the tour nor is there any info about a possible new album but it sounds like the members of L7 are very excited about this reunion so I’m guessing anything is possible.

So happy together?
Back in November we learned that Frances Bean Cobain, the only daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and still alive and kicking Courtney Love, was executive producing a new documentary film about her father titled Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck. Yesterday, at the Sundance Film Festival, Montage of Heck was world premiered … and Frances Bean was reunited at the event with her estranged mother. For the most part, it looked like everyone was all smiles for the event … in a seeming show that hatchets have been buried and all is well betwixt Frances and Courtney again. More »
"Until you are in it, you really can't wrap your brain around it"
Back in 2010, MTV aired a Nicki Minaj documentary titled My Time Is Now. Well, it is — apparently — Nicki‘s time again because on Sunday January 18, MTV will air a second Nicki Minaj documentary titled My Time Again. As you can see in the just-released trailer above, My Time Again will showcase events in Nicki‘s life over the past half year as she worked toward the release of her new album The Pinkprint. Barbz and Kenz, this doc is for you.
'A Dad's Dream'
Snoop Dogg and his son Cordell Broadus have signed on to appear in a 5-part docu-series for ESPN that will chronicle Cordell‘s journey from high school football player to NCAA college football player. The first trailer for this new docu-series, titled Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream, has been released and you can watch it in full above. From the look of this trailer, it would appear that we are going to see two sides of Snoop‘s personality … the doting dad who is proud of his son’s success and the doting dad who is also a music icon who is proud of his son’s success. I don’t really watch ESPN but this looks pretty great. The series will premiere on January 17 and I think I’ll be tuning in, will you?
"This is my first world tour ever"
Jennifer Lopez has a treat for fans this New Year’s Eve night because that is the night she will release her new documentary film about her Dance Again World Tour. J. Lo toured the world for the first time and she brought along cameras to catch all the most important parts. I’m guessing she was going for a Madonna: Truth or Dare sort of thing but my guess is that it won’t be quite that exciting. Still, I’m sure this doc will be a must see for Jennifer Lopez fans around the world. Set your DVR now because Dance Again: World Tour will premiere on HBO on 12.31.14 at 9PM.
"What do you do when you're a full grown man in a boy band?"
Earlier this month we learned that Backstreet Boys are releasing next month a documentary that will cover their 20 year history titled Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of in theaters and on Video On Demand. Today we get to see the official trailer for the doc and, I have to admit, it looks pretty damn good. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first heard this documentary was coming out but now that I’ve seen the trailer, yes, I am interested in checking it out. Watch the trailer above to get a good sense of what this BSB documentary is all about and determine if it’s something you’d like to see when it is released on January 30. It looks good, right?
Yes, really, a BSB movie
For the past year or so, Backstreet Boys have been quietly promoting the production of their first movie, a documentary film that has been titled Backstreet Boys: Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of. Today we learn, at long last, that the film has been given an official release date! As I understand it, the doc has been screened for a select few fans in recent days ahead of the release date announcement. Show ‘Em will be released in traditional movie theaters as well as on Video On Demand and then, eventually, basic cable. Click below to learn more about this exciting BSB news! More »
The TV Guide
The night before Thanksgiving is commonly known as the Biggest Bar Night of the Year … so naturally, I spent my Thanksgiving Even laying on the couch watching TV. Yesterday was one of my trademark No Shower DaysTM where I lounged around in my comfies, only venturing out in public to forage for food, before I settled in to do absolutely nothing at all. I managed to catch a showing of the HBO documentary Banksy Does New York which chronicles the street artist’s month-long residency in NYC in October of 2013 and I finally started watching the Twin Peaks TV series all over again. Honestly, ’twas a very nice night, indeed. More »
'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck'
HBO has announced that it will air a new documentary on Kurt Cobain in 2015, which is fairly interesting news … but the really exciting part of this announcement is the revelation that Kurt‘s daughter Frances Bean Cobain will executive produce the project (making this new doc the first ever to include cooperation from Cobain‘s family). Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is a documentary project that director Brett Morgen has been working on since 2007. With Frances‘s involvement in the project, it would appear that HBO finally saw fit to procure the rights for this documentary … which is a brilliant move on their part, I must say.

MUST SEE TV
Last weekend, Lifetime aired their much-ballyhooed made-for-TV biopic movie about Aaliyah which Timbaland hated, Twitter hated, everyone hated. This weekend, VH1 comes to our rescue because they are re-airing Behind the Music: Aaliyah tomorrow night as a brilliant (yet SHADY) way of making up for the horrid Lifetime movie. Behind the Music is a documentary series that tells the stories of some of our favorite artists using interview footage of the artists themselves, as well as people who worked with the artists, family and friends. If you want to see the real deal when it comes to Aaliyah‘s life story, you’re gonna wanna tune in and watch Behind the Music: Aaliyah tomorrow night. More »
