We’ve just checked, and no, it isn’t April 1st. Apparently, once upon a time and not in a galaxy far, far away, there was such a thing as a Victoria Beckham hip-hop album.

Just as it sounds on the face of it, the project is not something that anybody involved with it is particularly pleased to remember, but now fans can get the hear what became of the sessions when 17 unreleased demo tracks were leaked online earlier this week, which can now be found on YouTube and SoundCloud, according to Digital Spy.

Director Lee Daniels (Precious, The Butler) has come under fire from hip hop mogul and Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon Dash.

Backstage Review


Bad
What goes on behind the scenes at big rap shows? It's exactly what you think. And it ain't worth watching.

The Woodsman Review


Very Good
For sheer guts alone, one has to applaud the makers of The Woodsman, who must have suffered ear damage from all the doors slamming in their faces when they went around trying to get the film made. "Well, you see, it's about this pedophile..." Although guts won't get you everywhere, and they're no substitute for having something to back it up, the courage apparent in The Woodsman's balanced and humane story of monstrous behavior helps it skate over more than a few thinly scripted passages.

Simply put, Walter (Kevin Bacon) is back in town after serving a 12-year stretch for molesting young girls. He gets a job at a lumberyard where the manager (David Alan Grier, in a rare yet welcome stab at dramatic acting) makes it clear that he only hired Walter due to a family favor. Antisocial to a fault, Walter goes about his work with sullen determination, retreating to his depressing apartment to share the occasional beer with his brother-in-law, Carlos (Benjamin Bratt), the only family member who will even speak to him. Walter goes to a therapist who tries, without much success, to get him to dig a little deeper and to deal with his problem. In the meantime, Walter tries not to stare at the pre-teen schoolgirls who ride the bus he takes to work, and stares sullenly out his window at the schoolyard across the street ("the only landlord in town who'll take my money" he remarks to Carlos's bafflement at his suspicious choice of living quarters).

Fade To Black Review


Weak
Throughout Jay-Z's Fade to Black, the rap superstar talks about the importance of making his final album great, and about how big his November 2003 concert at Madison Square Garden needs to be. Both are profiled in the film. It would have been nice if the man they called Jigga, put a little of that focus in helping to make an absorbing chronicle of those heady times. Fade to Black, for all of the cultural hoopla involved, isn't much different from a concert DVD with some extra footage thrown in.

I'm sure fans of Jay-Z will be enthralled as his improvised rhymes and speedy eloquence join forces with an array of talent from the hip-hop community, including Missy Elliott, R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, and Pharrell Williams. Everyone else will feel like they're watching a movie that's perpetually halfway over.
