In previous decades, movies like this were common like FATAL ATTRACTION, THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE, THE AFFAIR and many more. THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN is all about smoke and mirrors, building a case that someone has committed a brutal murder without having all […]Read On »

Masked maniacs, ferocious fish, unhinged vigilantes and a wheelman from hell. Reading a list of Michael Wandmacher’s prolific credits feels like a particularly crazed membership drive for The Suicide Squad, a rogue’s gallery that he’s taken out for a spin with a distinctively energetic ability for pounding action where a metal attitude often hits the pedal. Starting his career in the rhythmic company of Jackie Chan with the English version scores for ARMOR OF GOD, TWIN DRAGONS and ONCE A COP. Wandmacher has brought his passion to CRY_ WOLF, THE KILLING FLOOR, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, PIRANHA 3-D, THE LAST EXORCISM:PART II  and PUNISHER: WAR […]Read On »

  Death and transfiguration are two themes that have often accompa-nied the scores of Fernando Velazquez. Powerfully embodying a new generation of orchestrally rich Spanish composers to steadily take root in Hollywood, Velazquez rose from numerous shorts in his na-tive country to impress Hollywood with his lush, alternately creeping and raging sense of old school melody for DEVIL, MAMA singing with a romantic sense of aristocratic doom for CRIMSON PEAK and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. A particularly resonant ferryman for Velazquez when coming to grips with the inevitable, as well as the potential radiant light afterwards, is filmmaker J.A. Bayona. […]Read On »

DEEPWATER HORIZON | © 2017 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. DEEPWATER HORIZON – A pretty good action thriller about the well-publicized explosion that happened on a deep sea oil rig known as Deepwater Horizon. Led by an impressive cast including Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich and Kurt Russell, it does a good job of balancing the action with how the oil companies treat their employees and their property and how it really is about the bottom line. But it also does a good job of tackling the human spirit and how people can do incredible things and […]Read On »
