Robert Rodriguez isn’t the only filmmaker who makes highly individual movies from the SPY KIDS franchise on the family side to the EL MARIACHI/DESPERADO/ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO trilogy, the MACHETE and the SIN CITY movies on the mature end, and he’s not even the only one to have his own production facility, Troublemaker Studios, which is located in Austin, Texas. However, Rodriguez is perhaps the only writer/director/producer to head up his own cable television network. El Rey Network has several original series on its roster: FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, the vampire/crime drama based on the film directed by […]Read On »

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

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 »

The third and final season of Starz’s DA VINCI’S DEMONS, Saturdays at 8 PM, sees Leonardo Da Vinci, still a relatively young man played by Tom Riley, making weapons of war to defend Italy from the Turks. David S. Goyer, who created DA VINCI’S DEMONS and is one of the executive producers, originally turned over the show-running reins for the third season to John Shiban because he was up to his eyebrows in other projects, including writing the screenplay for the much-anticipated BATMAN V. SUPERMAN and creating/running NBC’s CONSTANTINE, the TV series adaptation of D.C. Comics’ HELLBLAZER. However, as Goyer […]Read On »

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

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 »
