Bad guy Nicholas Quinn (Angus Macfadyen) thinks he’s got Chuck (Zachary Levi) …Read On »

HALO: COMBAT EVOLVED ANNIVERSARY soundtrack | ©2011 Microsoft Studios

It’s been ten years since The Master Chief took on The Covenant to essentially create the modern video game industry. And through numerous sequels, spin-offs and rip-offs, the legend of the HALO name brand has been the one ringworld to rule them all. But just as importantly, HALO helped show the non-gaming industry that music for the medium could rival the musical quality, and production values heard on television and film. Credit for that can be given to HALO composers Martin O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori, the distinct voices that have been heard through all the main HALO games. While it …Read On »

Relatively few actresses create three indelible characters in their careers, but Alyson Hannigan has managed this hat trick and may well enact more in her future. Hannigan, born in Washington, D.C.and raised in Atlanta, started her career early, appearing in commercials before moving into films (including MY STEPMOTHER IS AN ALIEN) and television (FREE SPIRIT). Then, in 1997, Hannigan began her seven-season run as BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’s Willow Rosenberg, who started as a shy brainy high school student and became a very powerful witch, along with achieving real-world lesbian icon status when the character came out. Willow lives on …Read On »

Stars: Kate Beckinsale, Stephen Rea, Michael Ealy, Theo James, India Eisley, Charles Dance Writers: Len Wiseman, John Hlavin, J. Michael Straczynski, Allison Burnett Directors: Mans Marlind, Bjorn Stein Distributor: Screen Gems UNDERWORLD, much like the RESIDENT EVIL franchise (also distributed by Screen Gems),  seems to have a standard formula providing just enough gore, monsters,skin and women in tight leather to warrant an endless amount of sequels that’s high on action and low on plot. And yes, this formula seems to work and the boxoffice continues to support these films with UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING being no different. The fourth installment of the …Read On »


CD Review: THE IDES OF MARCH soundtrack

THE IDES OF MARCH soundtrack | ©2011 Varese Sarabande Records

In the midst of a very busy year that’s included THE TREE OF LIFE, EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE,  the finale of HARRY POTTER and the ironic opening and closing titles of CARNAGE, French-gone-gloriously Hollywood composer Alexandre Desplat found time to expose our nation’s king-making machine during the month of THE IDES OF MARCH. Far more serious in tone than his previous, ironically offbeat political takedown for GHOST WRITER, Desplat lets his Americana flag fly here, and at low, concerned mast. A Copeland-esque orchestra reveals George Clooney’s potential president as yet another moralist full of hot air, with a trumpet …Read On »

CD Review: I MELT WITH YOU soundtrack

I MELT WITH YOU soundtrack | ©2011 Lakeshore Records

Forty-something guys behaving badly get a beguiling collection of ’8o’s era American punk, new wave and English beat songs for an album that plays like a Goth hell version of ST. ELMO’S FIRE. You can practically see the black eye shadow dripping from the emo singers whose music made for the characters’ best years, songs whose guitar-driven angst thankfully took pop b.s. into the rabbit hole for the birth of alt. music a couple of decades ago. Now their brooding, vibrant melodies for addiction, suicidal tendencies and sexual dysfunction make MELT‘s twisted beach get-together anything but a blanket bingo. Effectively …Read On »


CD Review: SHAME soundtrack

SHAME soundtrack | ©2011 Sony Masterworks

SHAME director Steve McQueen (soon never to be confused with the actor) takes us on the musically eclectic predilections of a sex addict’s listening tastes, both from Brandon’s utterly confident position as a vinyl-obsessed pick-up artist to expressing the unrelenting carnal drive whose reasons are never expressed in the film. A bit more of a glossy cousin to the sensual, s & m likes of 9 1/2 WEEKS than SHAME would like to admit, McQueen’s choice cuts lend class to the unseemly, ranging from Glen Gould’s vocalized Bach playing to the seductive retro beats of Blondie’s “Rapture” and Chic’s “I …Read On »
