What do we associate most closely with March 17, known for centuries as St. Patrick’s Day? Why, horror movies about leprechauns, of course. Syfy Channel is obliging this tradition with its original movie LEPRECHAUN’S REVENGE, which premieres Saturday night at 9 PM. The telefilm, directed by Drew Daywalt (ABSENTIA) and written by Anthony C. Ferrante (BOO), stars William Devane and Billy Zane as father and son, Pop O’Hara and Sheriff Conor O’Hara, who wind up combating the homicidal Celtic creature. Devane, born in Albany, New York, began his acting career on stage and debuted on Broadway in THE WATERING PLACE. …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: GAME CHANGE writer Danny Strong on Sarah Palin, politics and more

GAME CHANGE is an apt title for what happened in the 2008 election when John McCain, the Republican nominee for President of the United States of America, selected then-Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin as his running mate. Even people who see eye to eye on nothing else can agree that what followed was not quite like anything else that had ever happened on the national stage. The book GAME CHANGE by Time Magazine editor-in-chief Mark Halperin and political journalist John Heilemann encompasses the entire 2008 election, including the Democratic contest between then-Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The HBO film …Read On »

CD Review: STAR TREK IV: THE VOYAGE HOME: Ultimate Edition soundtrack

Hardcore fans might be loathe to admit that the most popular entry in the STAR TREK film series (at least until J.J. Abrams re-booted it) was the “save the whales” picture STAR TREK IV: THE VOYAGE HOME that had the least to do with Gene Roddenberry’s mythology – let alone the movies’ majestically adventurous musical character that had been established by Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner. But dismissive purists aside, there’s no denying the one-off pleasures that abound in the lightweight, character-driven VOYAGE HOME especially in director Leonard Nimoy’s decision to bring a seriously avant-garde composer like Leonard Rosenman aboard …Read On »

CD Review: BATMAN FOREVER: LIMITED EDITION soundtrack (3,500 limited edition)

BATMAN FOREVER soundtrack | ©2012 La La Land Records

Where it seemed that the first two scores in the BATMAN franchise were as crazy as you could get with the Wagnerian approach to superhero scoring, then Elliot Goldenthal’s next two entries made Danny Elfman’s brilliant, demon circus takes seem positively somnambulant in comparison. If anything, Goldenthal’s BATMAN FOREVER and BATMAN AND ROBIN scores are like two alarm clocks, screaming through your senses as they mash together the 60’s jazz kitsch that Neil Hefti gave to the television show, along with the brash, brassy experimentalism of John Corigliano’s concert hall works in the 80’s- modernism that changed the face of …Read On »

I have to admit, my interest in the new THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN movie hasn’t been as rabid as my interest in the other superhero movies this summer (and you know who you are). Maybe it had to do with loving the Sam Raimi incarnation, or maybe it just felt that the Spider-Man world had been exhausted in the film world. Yet, today, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios offered up a special global sneak preview of the new film (opening July 3) with the filmmakers and actors in attendance in one of the many select cities across the globe so fans …Read On »

Some actors do one-man shows based on all the characters they’ve played over their career. Australian actor John Noble could probably do a one-man show based simply on all the variations he’s played on his FRINGE character Walter Bishop. Walter is introduced in Season One as a brilliant scientist who has had a breakdown and become deeply eccentric, owing to secrets having to do with his son Peter (Joshua Jackson) and FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv). We learn that Peter is actually from an alternate universe, taken by Walter to save his life after Walter’s son Peter died in …Read On »
