STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON | © 2016 Universal Home Entertainment

Business is picking up in the video realm with some good stuff out this week and things will continue to get better in the coming weeks as studios get over the holiday hangover of virtually nothing coming out. Movies: STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON – We have seen a number of docudramas come out regarding the rise to fame of some of the most famous rock groups out there but the back stories of the rap world (except for maybe Eminem) have gone without any documentation. But now we get the behind-the-scenes look at one of the most famous rap groups of …Read On »

This said, THE 5TH WAVE has the benefits of moving at a fast …Read On »

In Season 1, we’re a few thousand years in the future, when technology is a distant memory, magic is in use and elves dominate the world (humans are rarer and less valued). Demons have long ago been banished to a realm called the Forbidding, but as the guardian tree Ellcrys loses its leaves, the monsters break free one by one. Elf maiden …Read On »

THE X-FILES is returning for a six-episode run on Fox, beginning Sunday, January 24 after the football game, then settling into its regular timeslot on Monday, January 25.

Composer George Fenton parks with THE LADY IN THE VAN – Interview

If one might have the cliched attitude of old school English composers as adhering rigorously to the classically imperious music of Queen and Country, then they likely haven’t heard much of George Fenton’s prolific work over the last four or so decades, let alone had a crotchety, crazy old lady parked in their driveway for fifteen of them. Not only has Fenton contributed one of his most delightfully attitude-filled scores to represent THE LADY IN THE VAN, but he also has the distinction of having actually met the fearsome Ms. Shepherd, a curmudgeonly homeless woman who became a grudgingly accepted …Read On »

Composer Charlie Clouser invades earth for CHILDHOOD’S END – Interview

CHILDHOOD'S END soundtrack | ©2016 Lakeshore Records

Among practitioners of torture horror, Charlie Clouser’s razor-sharp industrial grinds and nightmarish, metallic atmospheres were the anti-tunes to inflict utter doom with in such nastily effective soundtracks as DEAD SILENCE DEATH SENTENCE, RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION and the SAW franchise in particular. Beatific music this wasn’t, even as the Nine Inch Nails keyboardist and award-winning hard rock producer showed that he had more than one stylistic hatchet at his scoring disposal when it came to television, especially in his rhythmic calculations for NUMB3RS and the surreal suspense that filled WAYWARD PINES So forgive us for thinking that Charlie Clouser has seen …Read On »
