Composer Harry Gregson-Williams guns for THE EQUALIZER – Interview

THE EQUALIZER soundtrack | ©2014 Varese Sarabande Records

Harry Gregson-Williams has often been a man on a mission of dark righteousness. Sure he’s done far gentler scoring for the likes of ANTZ, SHREK, THE TIGGER MOVIE, ARTHUR CHRISTMAS and the first two NARNIA movies, where he even essayed the voice of Patterwig the Squirrel. But if you cross the side of justice, just hear Williams’ family-friendly orchestral voice set its watch to 60 seconds, and become a distinctive sound of simmering electronics, imposing strings, slicing rock guitars and beds of raging percussion – melodic, often hallucinatory music that builds for characters’ with haunted pasts to explode into body count …Read On »

NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, the second spin-off of the long-lived and still top-rated NCIS, airs on CBS Tuesdays at 9 PM, right behind its progenitor. The U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service in New Orleans is a little more laid-back than its East Coast counterpart, or even the Southern California branch we see in NCIS: LOS ANGELES (now in its new night, Mondays at 10 PM). Audiences originally met Scott Bakula’s Special Agent Dwayne Pride and some of his crew – Special Agent Christopher LaSalle (Lucas Black), Special Agent Meredith Brody (Zoe McLellan) and coroner Dr. Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder) – on …Read On »

In ABC’s new comedy BLACK-ISH, Wednesdays at 9:30 PM, executive producer Anthony Anderson stars as Andre “Dre” Johnson. Dre is a successful, self-made man with a wife and three children.

Dre’s character and his familial issues are close to home for family man Anderson, who wound up having BLACK-ISH creator Kenya Barris incorporate a real-life incident into the series pitch and the body of an episode – …Read On »

Composer Imran Ahmad travels with THE DEAD from Africa to India – Interview

THE DEAD2 soundtrack | ©2014 Howlin' Wolf Records

When zombie apocalypses are all the rage in every conceivable medium, it seems difficult to come up with a new spin on the undead, let alone a new sound. Yet that’s precisely what Howard and Jonathan Ford did back in 2010 when they switched the usual American-English terrain to the African outback. It was a haunted land to begin with where walking bodies seemed like the natural outcome for the continent where life began. Adding immeasurable atmosphere to their  DEAD was the score by Indian-born composer Imran Ahmad, an unearthly mélange of ethnic percussion, voices and the more recognizable “horror …Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Oscar Isaac, David Warshofsky Writer: Hossein Amini, based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith Director: Hossein Amini Distributor: Magnolia Pictures Release Date: September 26, 2014 If Alfred Hitchcock were in a low-key mood – no crop-dusters or briefcase bombs – he might have made something like THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY, the directing debut of Hossein Amini, who adapted the screenplay from Patricia Highsmith’s novel. In fact, Amini has taken pains to make JANUARY look as though it was made in the year it takes place, 1962, when Hitchcock was still active, with …Read On »

TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 8 – “Time Heist”

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Steven Moffat & Steve Thompson Director: Douglas Mckinnon    Original Telecast: September 20, 2014 Network: BBC America I’ll admit that I was surprised to see the negative press rolling out of the UK about this latest episode of DOCTOR WHO, before it aired over here. “Time Heist” isn’t the strongest episode of this new series, but it was enjoyable and I’m really not sure where all of the anger is coming from. Basically the setup involves The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) trying to break into the most heavily secured bank in the known …Read On »

Fall Television Preview 2014: NBC

The much beleaguered NBC has thrown pretty much everything at the wall to see if anything will stick and a lot of it hasn’t. But, that said, there has been some pretty good stuff that has emerged from the once mighty peacock in the realm of HANNIBAL and THE BLACKLIST. So going into the new fall season, NBC seems to be taking a less of a throwing things at wall approach and more back to trying to find more things like THE BLACKLIST that will appeal to a wide market with a strong premises. Now, going into the 2014-2015 season, …Read On »
