The 2015 L.A. Film Festival: Part 1 – The Entertainer

LAFF15_24x36_Poster_102914_v10.1

NOTE: As a film festival draws to a close I usually try to talk up as many films as possible. This year I’m trying something different, just three films, a horror comedy (THE FINAL GIRLS), a documentary (CAN YOU DIG THIS) and a teen comedy/drama (SEOUL SEARCHING). They have little to nothing in common but collectively speak to the state of indie film circa 2015. “How great is this theater?” director Todd Strauss-Schulson yelled while introducing his film THE FINAL GIRLS in the mammoth Premiere House theater of the Regal LA Live Stadium 14. “Feel free to laugh, yell, scream and just …Read On »

The universe of women in the comic-book industry expanded this May with the launch of Emet Comics. Former film executive Maytal Gilboa founded Emet with six female-created comics to counter the notion that women aren’t interested in the art form as either makers or consumers. The first title scheduled to be released from Emet is ROMEO & JULIET & GUNS, an action tale set in a “hyper-modern” Verona. Five more titles are due out shortly. Emet’s motto is “Dare to get in trouble.” As Gilboa explains, “Emet Comics is a publishing company creating young adult and new adult content, centered …Read On »

In AMC’s HALT AND CATCH FIRE, now in its second season Sundays at 10 PM, we’re in the middle of the Eighties and the technological revolution is in full swing.

At the end of Season 2 of NBC’s HANNIBAL last year, title character and stylist cannibal/serial killer/psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) escaped into the rainy night, leaving our heroes – FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), FBI Behavioral Unit director Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and FBI agent Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) – all critically wounded. Season 3, Thursdays at 10 PM, picks up with Hannibal in Italy, accompanied by his own psychiatrist, Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson), while the other protagonists struggle to put themselves and the search for Hannibal back together. Executive producer Bryan Fuller (creator of PUSHING DAISIES …Read On »

CD Reviews: 3:10 TO YUMA and THE GUNMAN soundtracks

3:10 TO YUMA soundtrack | ©2015 La La Land Records

With the NRA-approved likes of TERMINATOR 3, LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD and MESRINE: PUBLIC ENEMY #1, Marco Beltrami has shown his certain set of skills when it comes to using firearms, at least musically when it comes to a soft-spoken composer whose scores often make particularly loud bangs – no more so then with a fully loaded re-issue of his ode to spaghetti westerns, or his recent score that effectively turns the similarly circumspect Sean Penn into a weapon-blazing action hero. When hearing how Beltrami created a unique, and gnarly sound for James Mangold’s mighty good 2007 reboot of …Read On »

CD Review: GOING APE! soundtrack

GOING APE! soundtrack | ©2015 Intrada Records

 Though he’d never stopped scoring dramatic subjects like THE GREAT SANTINI and ZULU DAWN (not to mention SATURN 3‘s  hulking robot), the 1980s proved to be a three ring circus that proclaimed Elmer Bernstein as a king of comedy. He was certainly on a roll after the hijinks of ANIMAL HOUSE, MEATBALLS and AIRPLANE! scores that famously played their screwball humor “straight.” But definitely not so with the monkeyshines of 1981′s GOING APE!, which teamed TV’s TAXI stars Tony Danza and Danny DeVito with three mugging orangutans. While definitely not the most sophisticated comedy that Bernstein would ever score, the …Read On »

CD Reviews: GRABBERS and ROBOT OVERLORDS soundtracks

GRABBERS soundtrack | ©2015 Movie Score Media

Since throwing an executive team-building trip into a bunch of merc serial killers in SEVERANCE, Christian Henson has proven to be one of the more notably rising British composers with his particular talent for the genre, exploring an eerily time-trapping Bermuda TRIANGLE, then adding to the Sean Bean body count in the lethally atmospheric BLACK DEATH before playing one of history’s monsters for Saddam Hussein’s THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE. Movie Score Media has been a big proponent of this gifted and prolific composer, recently with MALICE IN WONDERLAND, THE SECRET OF MOONACRE, STORAGE 24 and his music for a new TV …Read On »
