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 »

CD Review: THE ARK AND THE DELUGE soundtrack

THE ARK AND THE DELUGE soundtrack | ©2016 Music Box Records

Few film genres allow composers to write tone poems in the guise of scores like nature documentaries, their music getting to chronicle the grace, joy and life or death struggles of the planet in all of its infinite musical equivocations of the life force. Gabriel Yared set out to sea to in 1993 to sumptuously chronicle the glorious ballet between ocean and air. Hearing this glorious wash of melodic impressionism, you’re reminded that this Oscar-winning Lebanese composer just might be film scoring’s answer to France’s Claude Debussy, his DELUGE a cross between the flowing, romantic strings of “La Mer” as crossed […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE NICE GUYS

THE NICE GUYS movie poster | ©2016 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling, Angourie Rice, Matt Bomer, Margaret Qualley, Yaya DaCosta, Keith David, Beau Knapp, Lois Smith, Kim Basinger Writers: Shane Black & Anthony Bagarozzi Director: Shane Black Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: May 20, 2016 At first, a comparison between the new release THE NICE GUYS and the 1974 classic CHINATOWN may seem incongruous. The older film, after all, is an Oscar-winning drama, while THE NICE GUYS is solidly within the tradition of its director/co-writer Shane Black’s trademark action/buddy comedies. But hang on – both are period pieces (CHINATOWN is set in 1937, GUYS in […]Read On »

CD Review: THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD soundtrack

Before he became the go-to TV superhero scorer for DC with the likes of ARROW, THE FLASH and SUPERGIRL, Blake Neely was spending much of his scoring time during the first decade of the new millennium in the company of sweet romantic dramas like FIRST DAUGHTER, THE WEDDING DATE and STARTER FOR 10. One of his most delightful scores before he put on his cape was playing the amazing, jazzy mentalist tricks of 2008’s THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD. Director Sean McGinly based John Malkovich’s rage-prone mental illusionist on his own stint with The Amazing Kreskin, putting himself in the personage of Colin Hanks’ personal […]Read On »

CD Review: THE INVITATION soundtrack

A truly versatile composer when not superbly cranking out comedy scores like SPY, ZOOLANDER 2 and the forthcoming GHOSTBUSTERS reboot, Theodore Shapiro has shown an inventive affinity for typewriter-clicking drama with TRUMBO and creepily ethereal horror when ogling JENNIFER’S BODY. But it’s with THE INVITATION that Shapiro proves like never before just how unfunny he can be upon entering a suicide cult’s dinner party, as staged by JENNIFER director Karyn Kusma. Given a bloody desert as served by hosts straight out Heaven’s Gate, Shapiro’s weapon of choice is a single, overdubbed violin to further ratchet the tension. Where string playing of this sort is usually […]Read On »

Approaching the end of its fifth season Fridays at 9 PM and renewed for a sixth, NBC’s GRIMM recently celebrated its hundredth episode. Bree Turner plays Rosalee, a foxlike Fuchsbau. When we met Rosalee way back in Season 1, she was an herbalist who inherited her brother’s quasi-mystical spice shop. Rosalee struck such sparks with Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), a Blutbad watch maker who is also the hero’s best friend, that the writers crafted a romance for the two. Now Rosalee and Monroe are married, but with all the danger swirling around them, they’re hardly settled down. At a SAG/AFTRA […]Read On »
