CD Review: PARASOMNIA soundtrack

PARASOMNIA soundtrack | © 2011 Buysoundtrax

Director William Malone gave the somnambulist thrills of THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI a slasher spin for his horror flick PARASOMNIA, his imagination especially inspired for its German expressionist dream sequences. But perhaps PARASOMNIA’s most bizarrely remarkable contribution is its surrealistic score by Nicholas Pike, who’s previously conjured musical nightmares for SLEEPWALKERS, THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS and LOVE OBJECT (let alone BUD THE CHUD). His own partnership with Malone has been no les fearfully fruitful with credits including FREDDY’S NIGHTMARES, TALES FROM THE CRYPT, MASTERS OF HORROR and FEARdotCOM- a score whose nerve-jangling creepiness stands as a piker when …Read On »

CD review: UP original soundtrack

UP soundtrack | ©2011 Intrada Records

If Michael Giacchino brilliantly stepped into the shoes of John Barry and Henry Mancini to musically embody a family of superheroes and one rat’s exceptional taste buds, then 2009’s UP was the Disney animated extravaganza where Giacchino’s own, nostalgic voice rang loud and clear to the tune of an Oscar. Where I’ll be in the crotchety, Carl-worthy minority of those who’d want to take a cane to the unabashed cuteness of what awaits an old grumpus and an antically annoying boy scout on top of the forbidden mesa they float to, there’s zero denying the tear-jerking brilliance of UP’s life …Read On »

GLEE is an undeniable phenomenon. It’s a hit musical comedy-drama series on Fox, now going into its third year; it’s a series of original cast worldwide live concert tours; it’s GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE, now in theaters.

Elijah Wood and Jason Gann in WILDRED - Season 1 - "Isolation" | ©2011 FX/Ray Mickshaw

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, George Coe, Eric Stoltz, Peter Stormare, Kelli Williams Writers: Steve Baldikoski & Bryan Behar, 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 18, 2011 Judging by the list of name actors in “Isolation” – George Coe, Eric Stoltz, Peter Stormare and Kelli Williams – let alone the whole series so far, WILFRED is clearly a popular destination for guest-starring gigs. Coincidentally, popularity, and the lack of it, is the topic of “Isolation,” which breezily …Read On »

CD Review: MONTE CARLO original soundtrack

MONTE CARLO soundtrack | ©2011 Varese Sarabande Records

For as impressively big as Michael Giacchino can get, it’s often his small, unsung scores that are just as impressive. MONTE CARLO tween chick-aimed romance fits the bill nicely indeed. As opposed to imagining three young women finding their Prince Charmings in a jet set fairy tale kingdom, Giacchino’s alternately delicate lyricism and jazzily prancing rhythms might make you thinking you’re hearing that long-awaited RATATOUILLE sequel wherein the rodent Remy falls in love. It’s a measure of how much Mancini-esque caviar also appears here, with a more-than-healthy seasoning of Burt Bacharach to boot. You’ll definitely know your way to San …Read On »

CD review: THE GOLDEN CHILD soundtrack (3,000 limited edition)

THE GOLDEN CHILD soundtrack | ©2011 La La Land Records

After putting out a 3-CD set of Basil Poledouris’ numerous pit stops towards ultimately “fixing” his score for the Kurt Russell classic BREAKDOWN, La La Land goes the troubled creative process one better by releasing a second triple album that charts another Paramount movie’s long road to its final score. This time it’s both John Barry’s elegant, tossed work, along with Michel Colombier’s final, and far funkier soundtrack for Eddie Murphy’s THE GOLDEN CHILD- a far less-regarded star vehicle that’s foremost a winner for soundtrack fans as the discs contrast two disparate musical approaches. Using John Barry’s slow, jazzily elegant …Read On »

The episode “Compassion” gets into the back story for Ryan’s personality when we meet his free-spirited mother Catherine (Mary Steenburgen), who has just spent twenty years in an upscale psychiatric facility. Catherine’s doctor …Read On »

Movie Review: FRIGHT NIGHT

Stars: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, David Tennant, Toni Collette, Imogen Poots, Christopher Mintz-Plasse    Writer: Screenplay by Marti Noxon Based on the story and film FRIGHT NIGHT by Tom Holland Director: Craig Gillespie Distributor: Touchstone Pictures & Dreamworks Pictures Release Date: August 19, 2011 I was too young to see the original FRIGHT NIGHT in theatres when it was released. I saw it like a lot of children of the 80’s, on VHS. I liked the original flick and thought it was fun and I had always loved Roddy McDowell, but I didn’t have any kind of deep attachment to …Read On »
