Far from a comfortable option, youll find yourself getting ear fatigue after an hours listening. These arent particularly versatile headphones, either. Not comfortably enough to wear to watch a tablet-based movie, theyre also too awkward and bulky to be your new running companion. Final Verdict The Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear Wireless headphones prioritise sound over style, and while thats the sensible way to go, a bit more thought on the look and feel of the things wouldnt go amiss. Sound quality is solid without ever reaching unexpected heights and will fit with most musical tastes. They sound about right for their $199.95 (169.99 / AU$299.95) asking price and while lacking the intricate clarity and noise cancelling of the more expensive Bose QC30s, they do edge the Beats X in terms of audio performance.

The event was filmed and this footage was later incorporated into the assault on Las Vegas scene in Mars Attacks! 7. DANNY ELFMAN’S SCORE WAS A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE GOLDEN AGE OF SCI-FI CINEMA. Elfman—who’d provided the soundtrack for every previous Tim Burton film with the exception of Ed Wood (1994)—gave Mars Attacks! some decidedly old-school background music. “The goal was to invoke the ‘50s and that sci-fi sound that Tim and I both grew up on,” he told Vulture . To pull this off, he made liberal use of one of history’s first electronic instruments , the theremin. Invented by (and named after) Russian scientist Leon Theremin, it produces an eerie, humming wail. Throughout the 1950s, film composers embraced the aural gadget as a perfect mood-setter for science fiction and horror pictures. Due to its usage in such movies as The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Thing From Another World (both released in 1951), the public came to associate theremins with stories about extraterrestrial visitors.

It's musical chairs time for the NBA 's elite, with major movement again occurring inside the top 10. There's even a new team occupying the No. 1 spot. It's a tricky time on the basketball calendar, with clubs prioritizing everything from rest to draft lottery ping-pong balls to get this actual wins. While all three pursuits make sense in the right circumstance, the latter is the only one that can help clubs scale our digital ladder. These are on-court assessments only, meaning the rankings are based on traditional metrics, advanced analytics, team health and the eye test. And there's a built-in recency bias, since totem-pole position is meant to depict how these teams are presently performing. Begin Slideshow

She encouraged him to move to Los Angeles, where he did work in commercials and television, looking the part of the all-American. He auditioned for Lucille Ball, who was organizing a team of in-house players. Lucy loved him, signed him to a contract. It was Ball who eventually recommended that he do something useful with all of the obscure facts in his head. "We have enough actors," she told him. His first book, Academy Awards Illustrated , was published in 1965. In retrospect the Osborne book and its subsequent editions seem like templates for Turner Classic Movies. Both the books and the cable channel devote their attentions and enthusiasms to domestic films of a certain period: the Golden Age of Hollywood during which the major genres (gangster, musical, horror, comedy, Western, melodrama) were established and the iconic screen personae (Cagney, Hepburn, Leigh, Astaire, Roberts, Garland, Wayne, Davis, Stewart, Grant) were made famous.

We didn't see this parody coming, but now that it's here it seems like a very obvious mashup that needed to happen. Of course, we could easily see Deadpool being the star of his own musical. And of course, the song "Gaston" from Beauty and the Beast is a perfect fit for Deadpool to proclaim his own Deadpool-ness. Yet another unnecessary parody that is necessary now that it's been made.

It looks like there might be hope for the live-action adaptation of Mulan to be a musical after all! As you're probably still enraged over, the film's director Niki Caro recently said the Disney classic will not feature any songs "much to the horror of my children." And to the horror of everyone else, bb! Related: Selena Gomez Says She Was Bullied During Her Disney Days After getting quite a bit of heat from fans, Caro followed up on her comment by insisting that no final decisions have been made, telling the Los Angeles Times : "I don't know where that's come from. We've never talked about songs, and no decision has been made...I haven't even started working on it yet ... It is exciting that people are this passionate." Quit playing games with our hearts, and just keep the original songs! Please and thank you!

What do you imagine when you hear the phrasecat piano”? Some kind of whimsical furry beast with black and white keys for teeth, maybe? A relative of My Neighbor Totoro ’s cat bus ? Or maybe you picture a piano that contains several caged cats who shriek along an entire scale when keys are pressed that slam sharpened nails into their tails. If this is your answer, you might find people slowly backing away from you at times, or gently suggesting you get some psychiatric help. But then, imagine that such a perverse oddity was in use by psychiatrists, like the 18th-century German physician Johann Christian Reil, who—reports David McNamee at The Guardian —“wrote that the device was intended to shake mental patients who had lost the ability to focus out of a ‘fixed state’ and into ‘conscious awareness.’” So long, meds.

However, Disney 's Beauty and the Beast remains strong with an estimated $11.4M yesterday, -36% from Tuesday. The Bill Condon-directed musical easily slotted the best Wednesday in March ahead of Passion of the Christ ($8.4M second Wednesday), Batman v...
