TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Island of Dreams”

Claire Coffee in GRIMM - Season 1 - "Island of Dreams" | ©2012 NBC/Scott Green

Stars: David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, Claire Coffee Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Rob Bailey Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 31, 2012 NBC is not doing GRIMM any favors with constantly preempting it and sending it on long hiatuses. The show is one of their major success stories for the network this year – and it’s been doing it in the dead zone of Friday night programming opposite two other similar genre shows FRINGE and SUPERNATURAL. It’s a shame, because if they could find a …Read On »


CD Review: BACK TO GAYA soundtrack

BACK TO GAYA soundtrack | ©2012 Movie Score Media

As with the final works of such ailing composers as Jerry Goldsmith, Michael Kamen didn’t let sickness diminish the talents that first landed him on the Hollywood map, namely a flair for orchestral writing. And like the equally missed Goldsmith, Kamen’s memorable swan song would be for an animated film. BACK TO GAYA (otherwise known by its equally confounding titles of  THE SNURKS  or BOO, ZINO & THE SNURKS) is no LOONEY TUNES: BACK IN ACTION or the Kamen-scored IRON GIANT for that matter. And that’s one big reason why this otherwise terrific soundtrack has languished in obscurity until Movie …Read On »


Movie Review: INTRUDERS

INTRUDERS movie poster | ©2012 Millennium

Rating: R Stars: Clive Owen, Carice Van Houten, Daniel Bruhl, Pilar Lopez De Ayala, Ella Purnell, Izan Corchero, Kerry Fox, Hector Alterio Writers: Nicolas Casariego & Jaime Marques Director: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo Distributor: Millennium Entertainment Release Date: March 30, 2012 With a preteen girl and a small boy both flickering between the real world and a scary figure who threatens to drag them elsewhere, INTRUDERS has notes from movies as diverse as PAN’S LABYRINTH and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, while the suggestion that found objects can become deadly may remind some of BOOGEYMAN (the 2005 film co-written by Eric …Read On »



WRATH OF THE TITANS movie poster | ©2012 Warner Bros.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Edgar Ramirez, Toby Kebbell, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Danny Huston, John Bell Writers: Dan Mazeau & David Leslie Johnson, story by Greg Berlanti & David Leslie Johnson & Dan Mazeau Director: Jonathan Liebesman Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: March 30, 2012 WRATH OF THE TITANS is actually more or less okay, but there are a number of elements that offer themselves up for nitpicking criticism at the outset. For one thing, while “titans” was being used figuratively to describe large and imposing beings and monsters in this movie’s forerunner, 2010’s CLASH …Read On »


TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “Nothing As It Seems”

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Jeff Pinkner & Akiva Goldsman Director: Frederick E.O. Toye Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 After a couple of solid weeks, the “Nothing As it Seems” episode of FRINGE takes a detour in monster-of-the week territory that just seems to out-of-place in the FRINGE universe. “Nothing As It Seems” revisits a previous case from Peter’s original timeline about the man who turns into a monstrous humanoid porcupine. That case is revived in the new timeline, but things are drastically different. What we …Read On »

Aside from the classic Rankin-Bass stop motion animated productions in the early 1970s (THE EASTER BUNNY …Read On »


TV Review: COMMUNITY – Season 3 – “Digital Exploration of Interior Design”

Stars: Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, Chevy Chase, Jim Rash Writer: Chris McKenna Director:  Dan Eckman Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 29, 2012 CHUCK was shameless and appreciative of their association with Subway. The sandwich company was incorporated into the fabric of the show – which, along with the fans, was integral in keeping the series on the air as long as it did. Now COMMUNITY is biting the Subway hand that feeds with its hilarious new episode “Digital Exploration Of Interior Design.” A new sandwich shop …Read On »



KINGDOMS OF AMALUR: RECKONING soundtrack | ©2012 38 Studios

An undead knight is out for Kratos-level payback in this fantasy RPG, and it’s up to Grant Kirkhope to go Medieval with a far more mature bit of musical creature-trouncing than he’d dealt with in such previous child-friendly games as GRABBED BY THE GHOULIES and BANJO KAZOOIE. Thankfully for Kirkhope’s sake, KINGDOM‘s warrior will have everything on his lethal list of grievances except for this score, as Kirkhope does RECKONING‘s wrath proud with an exhilarating soundtrack that plays like equal parts LORD OF THE RINGS and STAR WARS – minus much of the dirge-like bits that go along with a …Read On »


TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “Safety In Numbers”

Danny Glover in TOUCH - Season 1 - "Safety in Numbers" | ©2012 Fox/Kelsey McNeal

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, David Mazouz, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Danny Glover Writer: Carol Barbee Director: Stephen Williams Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 Every time a show proves to be as good out of the gate as TOUCH, you almost fear that the inevitable downslide is coming. SMASH and ALCATRAZ are perfect examples of first season series that started off strong and faltered quickly. I’m hoping the bigger picture of TOUCH, since it has proven to be so focused, will be the exception to the rule. It appears it has a pretty detailed plan all mapped out in …Read On »


TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “Break on Through”

Torrey DeVitto in THE VAMPIRE DIARIES - Season 3 - "Break on Through" | ©2012 The CW/Quantrell D. Colbert

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Rebecca Sonnenshine, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Lance Anderson   Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 22, 2012 Hmmm, two episodes back in and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES still doesn’t feel like it’s quite up to its potential. This series has been one of my favorite guilty pleasures for a couple of years, but following on the heels of the original vamp storyline this season, it seems that the writers are at a loss as to what to do next (besides bodily harm to Alaric (Matt Davis). So …Read On »
