Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Ali Milner, Barbara Kottmeier, Jeremy Thorsen Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 10, 2015 Even on SUPERNATURAL, there have to be some episodes that are just so-so. Not great, not awful, not crazy, just the show doing what it does when nobody is feeling particularly inspired that week, though everyone is still perfectly competent. “Halt & Catch Fire” (not to be confused with the brilliant-every-episode AMC series of that title) is such an episode. Sam (Jared …Read On »

Gray) – to take over when he’s gone. Lucious’ ex-wife Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) returns from prison and would like to control the …Read On »

CD Review: GORKY PARK soundtrack

GORKY PARK soundtrack | ©2014 Intrada Records

James Horner’s career was taking off in 1983, due to a dynamic signature sound that often meshed impactful percussion with richly thematic melodies that paid homage to such modern classical Russian masters as Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky. So it was fitting that Horner’s music would journey to their Motherland with GORKY PARK, its unique story (by NIGHTWINGS‘ killer bat author Martin Cruz Smith) pitting a Soviet cop against a murderous American capitalist pig, with furry sables as the MacGuffin behind a skinned face triple slaying. One need not dig far to turn up Horner’s usual, impactful suspects with a score that …Read On »
