In TNT’s MURDER IN THE FIRST, Mondays at 10 PM, the San Francisco police homicide squad works on a number of cases, but always circles back to the investigation of the murder of a young woman who worked for a super-wealthy entrepreneur (Tom Felton). Ian Anthony Dale plays Detective Jim Koto. This is hardly Dale’s first go-round as law enforcement – he and fellow MURDER IN THE FIRST actor Taye Diggs previously played police partners in the series DAY BREAK. The Minnesota native also starred in the science-fiction series THE EVENT, has a recurring role on HAWAII FIVE-0 and appeared …Read On »

Interview: SNOWPIERCER composer MARCO BELTRAMI is on the right sound-track

SNOWPIERCER | ©2014 The Weinstein Company

Among the genre-centric composers who’ve carried on the torch from Jerry Goldsmith, few stand out for blazingly inventive sci-fi and horror scores like the maestro’s USC protégé Marco Beltrami. Just as his mentor used his memorable thematic talents for orchestrally, and electronically conveying psychopaths, aliens and futuristic adventure, Beltrami has jumped on a similarly imaginative and prolific bandwagon. Since the psychopathic score for the smash 1996 hit SCREAM stabbed Beltrami into the Hollywood map, the composer has used every trick from chilling melodies to thunderous percussion and angelic choruses to embody the fantastical and fearful, music capable of rapturously symphonic …Read On »

But should we really be surprised? It’s 24 for God’s sake. Everything is always bleak and toward the end it really ramps up the bleakness. So not only does Cheng Zhi (Tzi Ma) have the override device but he also now is control …Read On »

Interview: EARTH TO ECHO composer Joseph Trapanese phones home

EARTH TO ECHO soundtrack | ©2014 Relativity Music Group

Listen to such pulsing wavelengths as Fall on Your Sword’s ANOTHER EARTH, Nathan Johnson’s LOOPER Nima Fakhara’s THE SIGNAL or Steven Price’s Oscar-winning GRAVITY, and you’ll pick up loud and clear on the burgeoning film scoring genre I prefer to call “alt. sci-fi.” It’s a plane of electro-orchestral existence where traditional symphonic melody (or at least the spirit of it) gets fused with an acoustical rock and roll vibe that can veer from psychedelia to grunge. Organic samples of everything from scraped metal to car engines are warped into new, unearthly entities, joining with electronic percussion and atmospheres that can …Read On »

Interview: FARGO composer Jeff Russo makes his own musical hit for FX’s reinvention

FARGO soundtrack | ©2014 Sony Music

With the winning likes of such improbable fim-to-tv adaptations as HANNIBAL, the boob tube and its scoring seem to have gotten significantly smarter and edgier than it’s been in the last several decades – or at the very least since the 16 years that FARGO first hit movie theaters. This North Dakota-set film noir represented the Coen Brothers at the height of their gleefully twisted irony, as a horrifically violent kidnapping-gone-wrong played out amidst cheerful salt of the Midwestern earth types. And only a humble (and very pregnant) female sheriff has the horse sense to figure out that this escalating …Read On »

Beau Bridges gleaned a Guest Actor nomination for his performance as the fictitious Dr. Barton Scully, a friend of Masters who loves his wife but is sexually drawn to other men; Allison Janney has been nominated as Guest Actress for her work as Scully’s wife …Read On »

Not only have they continued the ongoing interest in the Russians getting ahold of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) but they have brought the Chinese back into the mythology with Cheng Zhi (Tzi Ma). You remember him right? The dude that kidnapped …Read On »
