Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 10, 2012 Did SUPERNATURAL really need to call this episode “What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?” Yes, it’s a parody of the title of Woody Allen’s dubbed Japanese spy parody WHAT’S UP, TIGER LILY?

CD Review: BODY HEAT soundtrack

BODY HEAT soundtrack | ©2012 Film Score Monthly

Few composers personify all things sex like John Barry. Not just the carnal act, but the romance and burning desire. It’s scoring as skin on skin, pure pleasure made through the jazzily lush fusion of brass and strings. When listening to this composer’s classic Kama Sutra, there’s no chapter that captures this mix of eroticism, emotion and danger with the sensuality of 1981’s BODY HEAT. Lawrence Kasdan made a surprising move from penning the PG likes of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK to writing and directing this then temperature-raising R update of classic 40s-style film …Read On »

CD Review: RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION and THE APPARITION soundtracks

RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION soundtrack | ©2012 Milan Records

Horror scoring seems to be rapidly transforming into some ungodly beast, composed of mutated sound effects, shrieking percussion and shards of what stands for melody. Not that this raging sonic flesh is such a bad thing, especially when in the hands of Tomandandy. Known to their relatives as Tom Hajdu and Andy Milburn, this duo has been responsible for any number of innovative works for the genre, including THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES, RIGHT AT YOUR DOOR and THE HILLS HAVE EYES. Now after accompanying Alice against the Umbrella corporation for RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE, the composers make that adventure seem positively sedate …Read On »

Two big fan favorite characters from the Robert Kirkman/Tony Moore/Charlie Adlard created comic will also be joining Season 3 including the villainous The Governor (David Morrissey) and warrior …Read On »

Once again Kate McKinnon rises to the top as one of the most promising new performers as the series relies heavily on Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis to wring laughs out …Read On »

Movie Review: SINISTER

SINISTER movie poster | ©2012 Summit Entertainment

Rating: R Stars: Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance, Fred Dalton Thompson, James Ransone, Clare Foley, Michael Hall D’Addario, Nicholas King, Vincent D’Onofrio Writers: Scott Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill Director: Scott Derrickson Distributor: Summit Release Date: October 12, 2012 Sometimes a horror movie’s success can be best judged by how jumpy a viewer is on the way back to the car after the screening. SINISTER has a few strong jump scares, but mostly it’s a build of tension and what-the-hell-is-going-on-here. It has a few holes in its mythology, including just how all this got started in the first place (maybe the …Read On »
