CD Review: MAMA soundtrack

If hell hath no fury like a familial ghost scorned, then one quickly rising composer who knows how to play a potent mix of the demonic and paternal is Spain’s Fernando Velázquez. First impressing with the chilling score for a mother’s encounter with ghostly tykes in THE ORPHANAGE,  and then opening up a world of satanic suspense within the confines of an elevator for DEVIL, Velázquez has lately explored the real-life terror of THE IMPOSSIBLE, wherein a family’s bond overcame a Tsunami’s catastrophe. The elements of shock and emotion mix very well for MAMA, who’s not exactly welcoming of her […]Read On »

CD Review: IDENTITY THIEF soundtrack

Ask Danny Ocean and David Holmes, and they’ll tell you that r & b funk goes with comic crime like a blowtorch and a safe, or in the case of IDENTITY THIEF‘s Internet skills and some poor shmuck’s I.D. There’s also no better way to play a sad sack in way over his head in the white trash boonies than a rocking country-western sound, as Danny Elfman more than proved with MIDNIGHT RUN. Both musical caper sounds combine to rambunctiously enjoyable effect for Chris Lennertz, who’s paying far more homage to these styles than scoring a big rip off. Where […]Read On »

CD Review: LES MISERABLES soundtrack

LES MISERABLES soundtrack | ©2012 Universal Music

Even when musicals deal with less savory subjects like dueling New York gangs or starving English orphans, there’s always a romantic layer of production polish to give our delicate sensibilities a comfort zone from the muck and grime of real life, but by immersing viewers in a sewer of excrement along with its lovestruck duets, LES MISERABLES shouts aloud that it’s a stage-to-screen game changer. There’s an unheard level of primal scream singing here that throws us into the gutter along with Victor Hugo’s period Parisians, who sing about the lack of justice (or the psychotic belief in it) for […]Read On »

CD Review: HOOSIERS soundtrack

HOOSIERS soundtrack | ©2012 Intrada Records

Jerry Goldsmith was always pushing the musical boundaries of every genre he scored, sometimes applying seemingly anachronistic approaches where only a symphony would seem right. Perhaps no movie is a bigger case in points, or passes for that matter, then 1986’s HOOSIERS, in which Goldsmith applied the kind of synthesizers he’d most often used for sci-fi to the holy Midwestern sport of basketball. Along with Vangelis’ Oscar winning “Chariots of Fire,” Goldsmith’s Oscar-nominated work here would help change the game of scoring sports movies, creating a soundtrack as venerated as his similarly, boldly stylistic work on PLANET OF THE APES […]Read On »

In Part 2 of our exclusive interview with Sam Witwer, the actor talks more about playing vampire Aidan on Syfy’s BEING HUMAN, plus Darth Maul on Cartoon Network’s STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS and more. ASSIGNMENT X: How did you get into acting? SAM WITWER: When I was a kid, I wanted to be an actor. I was like, “That’s what I’m going to do, I’m going to grow up, I’m going to be an actor, I’m going to live inL.A.” And then as I got a little bit older, I was like, “You know, that’s not realistic at all.” […]Read On »

Interview: WARM BODIES and A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD composers Marco Beltrami and Buck Sanders write music to die for

A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD soundtrack | ©2013 Sony Music

If Marco Beltrami’s ever-growing resume of work makes him one of the hardest working composers in score business, then consider Buck Sanders as the session man who’s made the prolific number of IMDB entries possible (they currently have their work on display in the recent releases A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD and WARM BODIES). After assisting Beltrami since the beginning of his career in roles ranging from synthesist to sound design, score producer and additional music writer for such stylistically diverse titles as THE MINUS MAN, I ROBOT and SOUL SURFER, Buck Sanders finally got to step into the […]Read On »

Perry & Joe Fazzio Director: Stephen Schwartz Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: February 17, 2013 At last, at last, we get to find out who died when the Amanda went down, as we saw in the season premiere of REVENGE. And, in fact, “Sacrifice” starts as it did at the beginning of the season, with the divers and the hand with the wedding band. Now, I have been writing all season that I thought it would be Aidan (Barry Sloane). It made sense, since Aidan clearly was […]Read On »
