CD Review: HANNIBAL Seasons 1 and 2 soundtracks

HANNIBALS Seasons 1 and 2 soundtracks | ©2014 Lakeshore Records

To label the sonic nightmare that Brian Reitzell has cooked up for television’s most lethally elegant doctor-gourmand as “music” is way to simple a way of defining the wildly experimental stew of sound design and occasional shards of melody that infuse a show that by rights shouldn’t be anywhere near network television, especially scoring that could lead to seizures in more tender viewers foolish enough to tune in. But the psychological incisiveness with which Reitzell conveys the sound of insanity is like nothing else that’s ever been done within the psycho-killer genre, be it on the big or small screens. …Read On »

CD Review: STAGE FRIGHT soundtrack

STAGE FRIGHT soundtrack | ©2014 Lakeshore Records

Pulling off a musical satire, let alone one based around horror movies is fraught with a lot of unintentional peril, efforts that can go as unheard of as a bear relieving itself in the forest (does anyone remember Vincent D’Onofrio’s indie band slaughter DON’T GO IN THE WOODS?). But when it really works, as in the case of PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE and THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, the lyrics usually satirize the conventions of rock and roll as opposed to horror. While STAGE FRIGHT is punishably guilty of that sin, it’s scattershot satirizing of every other musical form from …Read On »

Movie Review: INTO THE WOODS

INTO THE WOODS movie poster | ©2014 Walt DIsney Pictures

Rating: PG Stars: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, Johnny Depp, Mackenzie Mauzy, Billy Magnussen, Christine Baranski Writers: Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, based on their stage musical Director: Rob Marshall Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures Release Date: December 25, 2014 Not to name names, but transferring stage musicals to the screen can be risky business. This is especially true when there are magical elements in the original, because what looks splendid done live can look either cheesy (if copied from the stage) or jarringly …Read On »

Elliott Gould in MULANEY - Season 1 | ©2014 Fox/Joe Viles

Elliott Gould has had a busy and diverse year. On Showtime’s drama RAY DONOVAN, which concluded its second season and has been renewed for a third, he plays Ezra Goldman, boss of Ray (Liev Schreiber) until the last episode, when Ray wreaked havoc. On Fox’s half-hour comedy MULANEY, Sundays at 7 PM, Gould plays Oscar, the ever-upbeat across-the-hall neighbor of comedian John Mulaney (played by the series creator of the same name). Gould is a prolific acting veteran, having starred in such influential films as Robert Altman’s MASH and THE LONG GOODBYE and Paul Mazursky’s BOB & CAROL& TED & …Read On »

CD Review: THE MAZE RUNNER soundtrack

THE MAZE RUNNER soundtrack | ©2014 Sony Classical

Starting off his career as an assistant to Jerry Goldsmith on STAR TREK NEMESIS and THE SUM OF ALL FEARS, John Paesano has certainly been busy with DC animation, DV action and friendly children’s stuff with such work as SUPERMAN BATMAN APOCALYPSE, S.W.A.T. FIREFIGHT and ANOTHER CINDERELLA STORY. But given the chance to crush kids on a major Hollywood playing field, Paesano blazingly takes off with THE MAZE RUNNER to land in a zone of body-crushing walls and prowling creatures – attacking the opportunity with terrific excitement and character-oriented melody to boot. Where the YA sci-fi genre has given a …Read On »

GOTHAM actor Cory Michael Smith on being the future Riddler – Exclusive Interview

Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma in GOTHAM - Season 1 | ©2014 Fox/Michael Lavine

In Fox’s GOTHAM, Mondays at 8 PM, we are in the DC Comics-originated world of Batman before Batman exists as a superhero. Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is still a youth, just beginning to think about how he’d like to fight crime in this corrupt city; James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is not yet the police commissioner, but possibly the only honest homicide detective on the Gotham police force; Selena Kyle (Camren Bicondova) is a homeless teen who loves cats and is great at climbing, but she’s not yet Catwoman. Of Batman’s eventual foes, only Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) – who …Read On »

CD Review: RECLAIM soundtrack

RECLAIM soundtrack | ©2014 Silva Screen Records

Israeli composer Inon Zur is a rock star when it comes to scoring dozens of videogames from LORD OF THE RINGS to EVERQUESTand SOULCALIBER, But success in one genre can often lead to a prison-like sentence from those who can’t see movie scoring talent from the sword-swing PS3 trees. Thankfully, Zur has gotten to break out with exceptional results in the far more realistic realm of child trafficking for RELCLAIM. John Cusack can certainly lay claim to that title as he keeps getting pulled back into the VOD arena as a bad guy, this time as the deceptively calm villain …Read On »

CD Review: RELENTLESS JUSTICE soundtrack

RELENTLESS JUSTICE soundtrack | ©2014 Buysoundtrax Records

David A. Prior, the Z-movie commando who gave the world the hilariously brutal DEADLY PREY is back in the woods with a one-person army who happens to sport a killer figure and an Australian accent. While I don’t know if Victoria De Vries beats someone to death with their own dismembered arm, at the least she’s got Chuck Cirino as her musical wingman when it comes to racking up a body count. A composer who’s been to the ‘Nam of countless schlock movies, Cirino can be counted on to give his all to this sort of insanity, from the killer …Read On »

CD Review: THE SPIDER soundtrack

THE SPIDER soundtrack | ©2014 Kritzerland Records

As the soundtrack label that’s taken up the torch for golden age score releases, one can see the blazing “Nordic Noir” light that attracted Kritzerland to release a soundtrack that’s practically unknown to American ears – and one that should be placed their promptly. For in composer Soren Hyldgaard’s music for this 2000 Danish TV miniseries about Copenhagen clawing its way out of the physical, and moral wreckage of WW2, one thrillingly hears the era’s blazingly melodic Hollywood scoring of Miklos Rozsa and Bernard Herrmann (as well as latter day masters like Jerry Goldsmith and John Barry,) as taken to …Read On »
