CD Review: ONCE UPON A TIME soundtrack

ABC’s fractured fairy tale show couldn’t have asked for a better composer than Mark Isham to tread between fantasy land and the “real world” of Storybrooke. Now with ONCE UPON A TIME’s yarns looking like they’ll be flipping for a while on Rumplestiltskin’s wheel, Intrada compiles the best of Isham’s episodic enchantments for an album the show’s fans will appreciate, as well as those appreciative of his cinematic stories. And therein lies TIME‘s best spell at fully bringing together those two worlds with Isham’s lush, yet melodically delicate sound. For while he might not have scored this kind of live […]Read On »

CD Review: DARK SHADOWS soundtrack

Of all the great, Gothic love affairs that have been artistically going on in the cinema, easily the most enjoyable, and enduring partnership belongs to composer Danny Elfman and filmmaker Tim Burton. Birds of a bizarre feather from Elfman’s joyously demonic rock band Oingo Boingo to Burton’s twisted scribblings for a Disney, it was fate that these kindred, oddball spirits would immediately hit it off from the clown hell that tormented Pee Wee Herman’s BIG ADVENTURE in 1985. The Burton / Elfman a circus of audio-visual horrors that would mostly grow increasingly frenetic through the likes of BEETLEJUICE, BATMAN RETURNS, […]Read On »

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Cynthia Cidre Director: Michael M. Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: June 13, 2012 It wouldn’t be DALLAS without backstabbing, betrayal and blackmail but this is ridiculous. As the depths of the characters’ relationships are slowly revealed in “Hedging Your Bets” (the second of the two hour series premiere) we see one twist after another, which begs the question, is anyone being truthful? J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) suddenly comes out of his comatose state when his son John Ross (Josh […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Ryan McPartlin on DAYBREAK, the end of CHUCK and CSI: MIAMI

Captain Awesome is back – and a badass. Ryan McPartlin, who endeared himself to five seasons of CHUCK viewers as the title character’s brother-in-law Devon, aka Captain Awesome, has a new gig. However, neither the role itself nor the venue for the show is typical. DAYBREAK, produced by Tim Kring of HEROES and TOUCH and directed by 24 veteran Jon Cassar, looks exactly like a pilot episode of an action mystery TV series, but instead of airing on network or cable television, it is running – one ten-minute episode every Thursday night at Daybreak2012.com. The Web series is sponsored by […]Read On »

Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: June 13, 2012 Growing up watching the original DALLAS series and just hearing the theme music play again for the newly rebooted DALLAS, I have to admit it put a smile on my face. Back in the ‘80s I anxiously waited ‘til Friday every week to get my Ewing family drama fix and the thunder of the theme song booming through my TV speakers only accelerated my excitement.

Cameron Diaz has played everyone from kick-ass heroine in the CHARLIE’S ANGELS movies to a terrible teacher in BAD TEACHER. However, playing a pregnant woman was brand new to her in her new comedy WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING (based on the best-selling book of the same name). In the film she’s a weight loss fitness show host and a contestant on a DANCING WITH THE STARS-esque series who is paired up with GLEE’s Matthew Morrison as one of the many baby-making couples in the movie. “I was so lucky to be able to, you know, be [Matthew’s] partner […]Read On »
