RAIDERS!: Documentary directors Jeremy Coon and Tim Skousen roll a home-made boulder of Indy boys to men – Interview

It’s a story that even Hollywood couldn’t make up, and a film urban legend until it was finally proven to be true. No doubt hundreds, if not thousand of children had their lives irreversibly altered upon their first, then repeated viewings of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, setting creative life goals in a way that went beyond play acting Indy in their friends’ back yards. But for a ragtag group of still-pubescent youths led by “indy” Chris Strompolos and director Eric Zala, it actually meant spending their lives straight into college re-creating RAIDERS shot-for-shot. Put away into their private warehouse, […]Read On »

POP SHOW PODCAST – Episode 23: GAME OF THRONES mid-season review

POP SHOW PODCAST | © 2016 AssignmentX

There was a bit of a production snafu in this episode of the POP SHOW PODCAST starring Anthony C. Ferrante, which resulted in the loss of some takes on pop culture forever being lost in the ether of the universe. This was mostly Anthony going off on various tangents. So if you enjoy that portion of our podcast, we apologize that you’ll never get to hear it. If you don’t like that portion of our podcast, well congratulations you won’t hear it either. Luckily (Hodor), we do have a really good discussion about GAME OF THRONES (Hodor!) that has already had […]Read On »

If Tom Hiddleston’s acting work on its own were somehow not enough to make him rate highly, consider this. AMC’s limited series THE NIGHT MANAGER airs Tuesday nights at 10 PM.

Hiddleston shot to fame playing the villainous but witty Loki in the THOR and AVENGERS movies. He’s starred as a depressed vampire in ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, as an impoverished nobleman with a devastating secret in […]Read On »

GREEN ROOM: Brooke and Will Blair on taking a soft scoring approach to punk ultra-violence – Interview

GREEN ROOM soundtrack

When it comes to wreaking musical mayhem, film scores from micro-budgeters to multiplex tentpoles have beaten the band with percussive savagery, raging strings and knife-stab samples. But where these soundtracks have tried be even more murderous than the slashing blades, gun shots and assorted blunt instruments they accompany, Brooke and Will Blair have shown that one can effectively conjure brutality by speaking softly and carrying a big ambient stick. The Blair’s talent for lethally hypnotic minimalism has been an especially potent weapon in the films of Jeremy Saulnier. Mutually beginning their careers with 2007’s humorously sadistic indie thriller MURDER PARTY, the […]Read On »
