THE ACCOUNTANT: Composer Mark Isham plays a unique set of action skills – Interview

  One might expect composer Mark Isham to have had a tender musical upbringing that resulted in a soft-spoken composer who carried a powerfully blown trumpet. No doubt he was given some very different life choices than Chris – a highly functioning autistic youth with a natural gift for math and an equally big bullying target on his back, one that makes his military dad train Chris and brother in the killer skills that mature a budding genius into “The Accountant’s” cross between Rain Man and The Punisher. Certainly one of the crazier Hollywood films to give socially challenged characters […]Read On »

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode we review the new western THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt. Is it as good as the original 1960 THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN? Is the 1960 version as good as Akira Kurosawa’s SEVEN SAMURAI from 1954? We talk about that, and the current state of westerns in Hollywood. In our second segment, we do a status check on two of our favorite shows of all-time THE SIMPSONS and SOUTH PARK. THE SIMPSONS just kicked off its 28th (!) season on Sunday, and “South Park” launched its 20th season two weeks ago.  […]Read On »

SULLY: Musicians Christian Jacob and Tierney Sutton bring soulful jazz to new Clint Eastwood film

Catastrophe and American heroism have long been passengers together in Hollywood, as square-jawed, macho men save the chosen few with the aid of scores as fiery as their commanding voices. But sometimes real life miraculously allows everyone involved in a disaster to not only survive, but to become a movie whose savior is as resonantly soft-spoken as his score. Such is the astonishing case to be seen, and heard in filmmaker Clint Eastwood’s gripping, and moving dramatization of “The Miracle on the Hudson,” when white-haired pilot Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger somehow managed to land U.S. Airway Flight 1549 in New York […]Read On »

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN: Composer Simon Franglen takes James Horner for a final ride – Interview

Few fans were aware of James Horner’s taste for daredevil thrills that made the soft-spoken composer rival just about any of the action heroes he scored. When Horner’s plane crashed into the desert far outside of Hollywood, a legion of admirers were at first astonished to find out how he perished, then swiftly overcome by the shockwave of just what the sudden loss of one of modern film scoring’s most notable signature voices meant. For where so many of Horner’s compatriots had fallen to the wayside over the decades when he first came to the fore, Horner had been on […]Read On »
