I was only 10 years old when comedian Chris Farley passed away in 1997. And I remember that day pretty vividly actually; I read it in the newspaper that morning and then heard it on the news shortly after. Yeah, that’s kind of a reflection of the times, but the death actually shook me. I had seen Tommy Boy already and loved everything about Farley. The movie, and much of the rest of Farley’s work, has aged gracefully for me personally and fans of comedy everywhere.
So naturally, an official Chris Farley documentary is something I’m very interested in, especially considering it took years of work to get approval and everyone together. Below is the first look at the trailer for the doc with the film seeing a theatrical release on July 31st (and a digital download shortly thereafter.)
Cameos and commentary from the likes of David Spade (who has the most heart-wrenching snippet in the trailer), Adam Sandler, Christina Applegate, Dan Aykroyd, Lorne Michaels, Mike Myers, Molly Shannon amongst others. I’m in even more after this first look. R.I.P. Chris.
Daft Punk has long been one of the world’s most recognizable mysterious artists (paradox, I know) and so any feature-length documentary would naturally intrigue the duo’s fans, myself included.
Daft Punk Unchained is just that, and available for full 90 minute stream below. The caveat is that it’s in French, with no subtitles, so that defeats the purpose for people like me who don’t know a lick of French.
However, if you fast forward to the 49 minute mark, you’ll catch Kanye West’s appearance and can hear his few comments on Daft Punk in English (before it’s dubbed over in French.) Even better, some cool footage of Kanye performing the Daft Punk co-produced “On Sight”. That actually got the juices flowing to run back Yeezus tonight. Enjoy!

The-Dream & Tricky Stewart have been one of pop’s most successful production and songwriting duos of the past decade and it should please longtime fans that they’re keepin’ at it… and “scratching the surface of what we’re capable of.”
That’s what Tricky says in this great new mini-doc with FADER that takes us into the studio for a detailed studio session and sit-down interview. Both Dream and Tricky have some quotable gems as they both touch on their own individual creative process and how they work with each other.
For instance, The-Dream talks about creating from a completely free platform, which is probably the most core element to take out of the doc. Tricky elaborates on their chemistry and how him being from Chicago and Dream from Atlanta allows for two different perspectives and genres of music they grew up on creating a unique merging of ideas, sounds, and tastes. There’s only so much to paraphrase that I really suggest you take a full watch of the quick 5 minute video.
We’re on a nice run of NBA documentaries here on Gowhere. Recently it was Penny, Steph, and now KD who teams up with Revolt for this 22-minute look at all things ball, his relationship with the media, and even serious plans for rap. Naturally, KD’s D.C. homie Wale narrates.
But right now, it’s rest and rehab for Durant whose season was unfortunately cut short due to the aching right foot of his. Today, he underwent successful surgery and just posted and uplifting instagram from the hospital. Get well, KD. The playoffs won’t be the same without ya.
In 2008, we were all introduced to who may well end up the 2015 NBA MVP.
Steph Curry took his Davidson College Wildcats to the Elite 8 in a magical, Cinderella run through the NCAA Tournament that saw Curry pour in 40 points, then 30, 33, and 25 versus the favored Gonzaga, Georgetown, Wisconsin, and Kansas respectably.
Curry was the talk of the tournament, donning a cover of Sports Illustrated, eventually winning ESPY Breakthrough Athlete of the Year, and showing us our first glimpse at the off-the-dribble deep 3s and twisting layups we’re used to seeing today.
I was one of the many swept up in Curry’s game and Davidson’s run so, with March Madness in full swing, Bleacher Report produced this fascinating 10 minute mini-doc on the 2008 Tourney. It features all the rare footage of the best highlights and sit-downs with Curry, Davidson coach Bob McKillop, and CBS commentators Jim Nantz and Gus Johnson who called Curry’s memorable moments. In fact, it was Nantz’ recollection of a small, but touching moment in Davidson’s first game versus Gonzaga that drove home how special this run was.
Any Steph Curry fan will really appreciate this, so click here to watch (unfortunately, can’t embed.)
The late and legendary rocker from Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, has long been one of music’s most fascinating figures since the early 90s. I enjoyed Nirvana’s music as I grew older and his suicide remains a sad day from his many loyal fans.
Now, coming in May, HBO is set to premiere the definitive Cobain documentary ‘Montage of Heck’ and the first trailer is below. It’s, as you’d imagine, a fascinating and dramatic look behind the scenes and into the mind of Kurt Cobain, especially as he grew as a rebellious adolescent. He represents how it feels to be alone, which as it’s illustrated in the trailer, was his greatest fear. He loved his family, child, and kittens in the previously unseen home video. I’m hooked from the well-produced trailer and now can’t wait to see the film.
Complex just released this new, fascinating documentary sit-down with Eminem, Dr. Dre, and 50 Cent talking about all things Shady Records. Need I say more?
Carve out 30 minutes today and watch up above. I’m about to do the same.
