Movie Review: THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING

THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING | © 2014 Anchor Bay

Rating: R Stars: Shane Johnson, Ella Anderson, Carla Pifko, Julie McNiven Writer: David Jung, story by David Jung & Tedi Sarafian Director: David Jung Distributor: Anchor Bay Release Date: August 22, 2014, theatrical/ August 26, 2014, VOD and iTunes THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING plays mix and match with its initial found footage set-up. Director/writer David Jung, working from a story he crafted with Tedi Sarafian, makes the switching back and forth fairly seamless and unobtrusive, though people who don’t like found footage probably won’t find this to their taste. The protagonist, Michael King (Shane Johnson), is followed by a …Read On »

Movie Review: IF I STAY

IF I STAY | © 2014 Warner Bros

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chloe Grace Moretz, Mireille Enos, Jamie Blackley, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, Stacy Keach Writer: Shauna Cross, based on the novel by Gayle Forman Director: R.J. Cutler Distributor: Warner Bros./New Line/M-G-M Release Date: August 22, 2014 Chloe Grace Moretz as Mia Hall is so luminous that she actually persuades us that budding rocker Adam (Jamie Blackley) the coolest kid in a Portland, Oregon high school, would fall hard at first sight for her solitary cellist. What’s even more amazing is that we continue to give credence through this as we get to know Mia better. She is meant …Read On »

CD Review: THE CASE AGAINST 8 and THE WEDDING DATE: THE RECEPTION EDITION soundtracks

THE WEDDING DATE: THE RECEPTION EDITION soundtrack | ©2014 Buysoundtrax

Now best known for putting propulsive arrows in the Green ARROW‘s quiver, Blake Neely seeks musical justice in a far more subdued, but equally powerful manner when it comes to overturning America’s legal prejudice against gay marriage. Marking another dramatically effective documentary score after chronicling The Challenger’s MISSION OF HOPE, Neely once again conveys a poignant, human face on landmark events. His CASE AGAINST 8 takes on an ethereal, subtly Americana tone as heard for rhythmic beds of guitars, piano, strings and poignantly sampled atmospheres. This score isn’t about winning the fight against voter and government-mandated prejudice with fist-waving, but …Read On »

DEFIANCE star Jesse Rath talks Season 2 – Exclusive Interview

Jesse Rath as Alak Tarr in DEFIANCE | © 2014 Ben Mark Holzberg/Syfy

In Syfy’s DEFIANCE, now in its second season Thursdays at 8 PM, it’s been thirty-five years since seven different species of aliens crash-landed on Earth and began interacting with the human population. The Castithans, all white with golden eyes, are among the most prominent – and certainly the most class-conscious – of the off-world races. Jesse Rath plays Alak Tarr, son of Datak Tarr, played by Tony Curran, and Stahma Tarr, played by Jaime Murray. With Datak as a lethal, social-climbing gangster and Stahma as an outwardly proper, privately manipulative poisoner, one might expect Alak to be not very nice, …Read On »

CD Review: IN YOUR EYES soundtrack

IN YOUR EYES soundtrack | ©2014 Lakeshore Records

A guitarist and arranger for such composers as Brian Tyler and Harry Gregson-Williams, Tony Morales has been impressing with his suspenseful, action-heavy scores for THE BAG MAN and ENEMIES CLOSER, while also netting an Emmy nomination for co-scoring the hellbilly hootenany of the HATFIELDS & McCOYS along with John Debney. Perhaps that’s why Morales’ romantic score for IN YOUR EYES  sounds like it could be taking place during a Van Damme face-off, as well as a mesmerizing mind-eye bridge where boy meets girl via psychic connection. Morales’ programming chops, not to mention melodic talent, add much musical atmosphere to this …Read On »

CD Review: GOLDEN NEEDLES and THE FOURTH PROTOCOL soundtracks

THE FOURTH PROTOCOL soundtrack | ©2014 Buysoundtrax

From spies to a certain magnum-blasting cop, Lalo Schifrin can be certified as one of Hollywood’s most versatile men of musical action – though it’s likely to be his lightning fists of Chopsocky jazz-Fu which will go down as his most popular score (along with Bruce Lee’s most popular film) for 1973s ENTER THE DRAGON. But perhaps an even cooler contender would be the soundtrack for director Robert Clouse’s 1974 follow up GOLDEN NEEDLES, which had seven treasure hunters of various moral shadings pursuing an idol whose “seven forbidden acupuncture points” all kick ass with Schifrin’s distinctive take on exotic …Read On »

CD Reviews: THE HILLS HAVE EYES and KNIGHT RIDER soundtracks

KNIGHT RIDER soundtrack | ©2014 Perseverance Records

Don Peake is one of the musicians who’ve jumped on board of Perseverance’s new “composer distribution series,” which allows artists to use the label as a proxy for titles they’ve always wanted to release. Among the titles to spring from the former Everly Brothers guitarist are FRANKIE AND JOHNNY ARE MARRIED and two volumes of KNIGHT RIDER. But horror cultists will most certainly get their primitive fill for Peake’s run through the cannibal-infested desert of Wes Craven during the director’s way grittier days, a grindhouse talent that had memorable brute force in 1977s THE HILLS HAVE EYES. This since way …Read On »
