CD Review: TAG: THE ASSASSINATION GAME soundtrack

TAG: THE ASSASSINATION GAME soundtrack | ©2012 Buysoundtrax Records

For a label that’s continually unearthing a certain generation’s cult obscurities like HARDLY WORKING and STARCHASER: THE LEGEND OF ORIN, Buysoundtrax makes one of their most pleasurably eccentric discoveries with 1982’s TAG: THE ASSASSINATION GAME. Written and directed by former Shape star Nick Castle to capitalize on the then-phenomena of “Assassin” games sweeping college campuses, TAG of course has those suction cup hijinx turn to real ammunition, the game going awry to the alternately satirical and lethally chilling strains of composer Craig Safan. Like the crazy kids who play at being as cool as the murderous big boys, Safan is …Read On »

CD Review: FROM INSIDE soundtrack

FROM INSIDE soundtrack | ©2012 Lakeshore Records

If you’re a pregnant woman on a post apocalyptic train ride to hell, then the least you deserve is a first class ticket, especially when it comes to setting the musical mood while traveling past oceans of blood, festering corpses and nuked landscapes. Much like the expectant mother who can only watch in transfixed horror, composer Brett Smith conveys a sense of nightmarish wonder to match the beautiful, depressing damnation of graphic novelist-turned animator John Bergin’s award winning feature FROM INSIDE. There’s nothing easy about absorbing INSIDE‘s shocking, Francis Bacon-like imagery. But far from reveling in the excesses of the …Read On »

Stars: Louie C.K. Writer: Louie C.K. Director: Louie C.K. Network: FX, Thursday nights Airdate: June 28, 2012 While WILFRED really got a lot of press last year on FX for being strange, groundbreaking, funny and utterly perplexing all rolled up in one, it’s taken three seasons for people to finally discover what a brilliant, unique and bizarre FX show LOUIE is. I caught a Season 2 episode one night on FX and was totally sucked in. It was suberverive, strange and very funny. And that’s why I was excited to see what comedian Louie C.K. had in store for the …Read On »

Verrone Network: Comedy Central, Wednesday nights Airdate: June 27, 2012 It was a smart move by the FUTURAMA writers to use this year’s election to do their own sci-fi take on campaigning and how society views on voting for a President just never change. And “Decision 3012” is a smart piece of political satire, even if it isn’t the type of laugh-out-loud funny we come to expect from the show. The concept is simple. The …Read On »
