CD review: CARS 2 original soundtrack

CARS 2 soundtrack | ©2011 Walt Disney Records

Though not  nearly as well reviewed a Pixar film as UP, but a whole lot of fun to listen to in any case, is CARS 2. Where Randy Newman’s more straight-laced approach was more fitting for the original’s desert-bound setting of Radiator Springs, Giacchino’s now taken over the driver’s seat with a considerable shot of adrenalin for this commercially flashy, globe-hopping sequel. Fans of Giacchino’s spy stylings for THE INCREDIBLES, ALIAS and MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 3 (not to mention his ultra-help sore for SPEED RACER) will be happy with the oodles of hip 007 / Derek Flint / Austin Powers action …Read On »

CD Review: HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2 soundtrack

HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2 soundtrack | ©2011 Warner Bros.

Alexandre Desplat is back in the HARRY house to weave his musical spell with HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2. But if things seemed more than a bit wispy and time-biding after the last two POTTERS, nothing will prepare you for this literally smashing wrap up, especially with a spectacular musical finish that brings John Williams’ spirit back to the Halls of Hogwarts like never before. Having impressed with the epic franchise fantasy scores for THE GOLDEN COMPASS and THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, Desplat thankfully raises the scoring stakes with his second POTTER big time, his brew …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Eric Balfour finds safety in Syfy’s HAVEN

Based very loosely on Stephen King’s novella THE COLORADO KID, Syfy’s series HAVEN is now airing its second season Friday nights at 10 PM. The title enclave is a small town in coastal Maine where most of the residents are a bit more than human. FBI Special Agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) came to Haven in the first episode to investigate a murder, but has stayed on to look into various strange events, including the town’s ties to her own past. One of the few people Audrey meets who doesn’t seem to have some sort of supernatural ability is Eric …Read On »

TV Review: WILFRED – Season 1 – “Anger”

Jason Gann in WILFRED - Season 1 - "Anger" | ©2011 FX/Ray Mickshaw

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Nestor Carbonell Writers: Sivert Glarum & Michael Jamin, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Victor Nelli, Jr. Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 11, 2011 Given how WILFRED as a series sends up everything, almost the last thing one would expect in an episode is a note of sincere emotion, but that’s just how “Anger” ends. On its way, it deals once more with Ryan’s (Elijah Wood) awesome passivity in the face of verbal/emotional abuse, Wilfred’s (Jason Gann) diabolical behavior, some …Read On »

Movie Review: FINAL DESTINATION 5

FINAL DESTINATION 5 movie poster | ©2011 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Nicholas D’Agosto, Emma Bell, Miles Fisher, Courtney B. Vance, Tony Todd Writer: Eric Heisserer, based on characters created by Jeffrey Reddick Director: Steven Quale Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: August 12, 2011 When the first FINAL DESTINATION came out in 2000, it had both the gift of novelty and inventiveness. The notion of people who “cheat” death only to have it make more grabs at them via bizarre accidents was relatively fresh, and the accidents themselves were wonderfully convoluted, as well as very gory. There was also at least a semblance of plot as the remaining characters …Read On »

On the set with the FINAL DESTINATION 5 actors Emma Bell and Nicholas D’Agosto – Part 3

Nicholas D'Agosto, Emma Bell and Miles Fisher in FINAL DESTINATION 5 - actors 2 | ©2011 Warner Bros.

Death is nowhere to be seen on the set of FINAL DESTINATION on this chilly December afternoon. In fact, Death is perhaps the cheapest actor working on the long-running franchise, that’s because Death is an unseen force – manipulating the kills in very complex and clever ways, but never showing his (her, its) face. Of course every actor working on this latest installment (once again filmed in 3-D and hitting theaters nationwide tomorrow) is excited by what kind of horribly, gruesome ways Death has engineered for them to die on screen. For Emma Bell and Nicholas D’Agosto, they reveal that …Read On »

TV Review: TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY – “The Categories of Life” – Review #2

John Barrowman in TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY | ©2011 BBC Worldwide Limited

Stars: John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Mekhi Phifer, Alexa Havins, Lauren Ambrose, Kai Owen, Bill Pullman, Arlene Tur, Candace Brown, Tom Price, David Grant Wright, Mark Saldana Writer: Jane Espenson Director:  Guy Ferland Network: Starz, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: August 5, 2011 Well, I love TORCHWOOD in pretty any size, way, shape, or form, but the thing I feared the most is blatantly clear in the fifth episode of MIRACLE DAY entitled “The Categories of Life.” The fear that I am addressing is the way a show can lose steam if they are focusing on one single storyline instead of …Read On »

TV Review: WAREHOUSE 13 – Season 3 – “3…2…1”

Jamie Murray in WAREHOUSE 13 - Season 3 - "3...2...1..." | ©2011 Syfy/Steve Wilkie

Stars: Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek, Genelle Williams, Allison Scagliotti, Aaron Ashmore, Jaime Murray, Ashley Williams Writer: Robert Goodman Director: Chris Fisher Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: August 8, 2011 This week’s WAREHOUSE 13 was an interesting episode in the simple fact that “3…2…1” told a multi-part story through several different time periods with Agents of the Warehouse that we were already familiar with. It is nice to see the series tie together Helena’s (Jaime Murray) 1800’s time period with Jack (Chad Connell) and Rebecca’s (Alex Paxton-Beesley) 1960’s and then bring it forward to the current Warehouse …Read On »

TV Review: WILFRED – Season 1 – “Pride”

Jane Kaczmarek in WILFRED - Season 1 - "Pride" | ©2011 FX/Ray Mickshaw

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Jane Kaczmarek Writer: Jason Gann Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 4, 2011 One measure of a television series’ originality is whether its episodes could conceivably be done (with slight variations) on other shows. WILFRED usually answers this with a resounding “No!” This is certainly the case with “Pride,” where Ryan’s (Elijah Wood) reluctance to ask his sister Kristen (Dorian Brown) for financial assistance leads him into a strange predicament, with the whims of Wilfred (Jason Gann), as usual, at the root of it all. Ryan is hurting …Read On »

TV Review: FUTURAMA – Season 6B – “Mobius Dick”

Stars (voices): Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Writer: Josh Weinstein  Director: Stephen Sandova Network: Comedy Central, airs Thursdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: August 4, 2011 In “Mobius Dick,” the FUTURAMA gang blandly pays homage to the big three of seafaring classics as the crew goes on a mission that incorporates JAWS, MOBY DICK, the biblical Jonah story and a bit of inter-dimensional rocketeering. Our story starts out as Farnsworth (voiced by Billy West) intends to have the family of his first crew at a memorial service to commemorate their first mission in which they …Read On »
