True, there are some peculiar edits in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES, director/writer Burr Steers’ film version of Seth Grahame-Smith’s undead-enhanced rewrite of Jane Austen’s original …Read On »

In space, your crewmates actually can hear you say something to the effect of, “I think the ship may be falling apart.” This is one of the many hazards on Syfy’s new series THE EXPANSE, now in its first season Tuesdays at 10 PM and renewed for a second. Based on a series of best-selling novels by James S.A. Corey, THE EXPANSE has multiple interwoven plot threads. One of these concerns the Canterbury, a spaceship that is not exactly in ship-shape as it hauls ice across the solar system two hundred years from now. This is physically perilous work in …Read On »

Composer George Fenton parks with THE LADY IN THE VAN – Interview

THE LADY IN THE VAN soundtrack | ©2016 Sony Classical Records

If one might have the cliched attitude of old school English composers as adhering rigorously to the classically imperious music of Queen and Country, then they likely haven’t heard much of George Fenton’s prolific work over the last four or so decades, let alone had a crotchety, crazy old lady parked in their driveway for fifteen of them. Not only has Fenton contributed one of his most delightfully attitude-filled scores to represent THE LADY IN THE VAN, but he also has the distinction of having actually met the fearsome Ms. Shepherd, a curmudgeonly homeless woman who became a grudgingly accepted …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: NIGHTMARES

NIGHTMARES Blu-ray | ©2015 Shout! Factory

Stars: Cristina Raines, Emilio Estevez, Lance Henriksen, Richard Masur, Veronica Cartwright Writers: Christopher Crowe, Jeffrey Bloom Director: Joseph Sargent Distributor: Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $29.99 Despite its uneven quality, 1983’s NIGHTMARES has been a much desired film to get a much-deserved Blu-ray release. Originally salvaging rejected scripts from the 1981 anthology TV series DARKROOM (because they were too intense), producer (and writer of three of the stories) Christopher Crowe took the scripts and transformed them into a four-part anthology film. With all anthology movies, the entries a pretty hit and miss – and the lengths vary as well – …Read On »

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA: Composer Roque Baños on scoring the seas – Interview

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA soundtrack | ©2015 WaterTower Music

If you madly hunt for great composing talents the world over, chances are you’ll hear the particular, vast melodic abilities of one Roque Baños. Hailing from Spain where he’d notably engage in the Spaghetti Western pastiche of 800 BULLETS,  the artistic classicism of GOYA IN BOURDEAUX and the bad cop antics of TORRENTE among the numerous movie he’d score in his home country, Baños first caught American ears with his romantically twisted crime stylings for 2000’s SEXY BEAST and the Herrmann-esque doom of 2004’s Theremin-possessed  THE MACHINIST. It’s been a long, prolific journey to our shores over the years before …Read On »

KRAMPUS: Composer Douglas Pipes unleashes music for the anti-Claus – Interview

KRAMPUS soundtrack | ©2015 Back Lot Music

If Douglas Pipes comes knocking at your door with a bag begging for candy, or drops into your chimney with a sack of toys to give, it’s best to run the other way from a composer with a knack for turning child-friendly holidays into hell. But for those Scrooges who delight in hearing merriment tuned to the key of frenzied misery, Pipes’ seditious way of playing two of the year’s most beloved days as humorously black-hearted apocalypses is music to the ears – no more so than on the happiest eve of all as he twists all that is musically …Read On »

In Fox Network’s GOTHAM, which just aired its winter finale, Bruce Wayne is a young teen who is not yet Batman, though he gives every indication that he will be one day. David Mazouz, however, has thoroughly embodied Bruce from Day One of the dark series, adapted by Bruno Heller from the D.C. Comics. Los Angeles native Mazouz (first name pronounced Dah-veed), now age fifteen, had previously starred as the preternaturally gifted son of Kiefer Sutherland’s character on two seasons of Fox’s TOUCH. The audience could hear his thoughts, but he only spoke aloud to other people at the very …Read On »
