Still, what a way to go out. Ms. LaBelle was shake, shake shakin’ it! Truly, she was a positive spirit in the ballroom. Also uplifting were Riker Lynch & Allison Holker’s amazing …Read On »

UNFRIENDED | © 2015 Universal Studios

Rating: R Stars: Shelley Hennig, Moses Jacob Storm, Renee Olstead, Will Peltz, Jacob Wysocki, Courtney Halverson, Heather Sossaman Writer: Nelson Greaves Director: Levan Gabriadze Distributor: Universal Release Date: April 17, 2015 There is nothing new about vengeful ghosts, but there is certainly novelty in setting a horror story entirely in a multi-person Skype/Facebook chat, which is the case in UNFRIENDED. Apparently unworried that its users may be too creeped out to continue to use the social media site after seeing the film, Facebook has allowed its features to show up prominently here, as do YouTube, Google and a number of …Read On »

TREEHOUSE movie poster | ©2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Rating: Not Rated Stars: J. Michael Trautmann, Dana Melanie, Nick Herra, Clint James, Daniel Fredrick Writers: Alex Child, Miles Harrington & Michael Bartlett Director: Michael Bartlett Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date: Blu-ray DVD, March 31, 2015 TREEHOUSE is one of those low-budget horror movies that starts off so slowly that it seems like it’s never going to pick up speed. Unfortunately, unlike some other genre entries that lull us in order to make the jolts that much more impactful, TREEHOUSE continues as it begins. It takes 25 minutes to get into the treehouse, where we wind up feeling more trapped …Read On »

CD Review: ELMER BERNSTEIN: THE WILD SIDE soundtrack

ELMER BERNSTEIN: THE WILD SIDE soundtrack | ©2015 Varese Sarabande Records

No composer embodied the pure movie swing of jazz during the art form’s mainlining into much of film scoring during the 50s and 60s like Elmer Bernstein. From the hot sax heroin rush that flooded into Frankie Machine’s veins in THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM to the lustful brass catfight of WALK ON THE WILD SIDE or the salacious gossip beat that stank of  THE SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS, Bernstein tapped into the energetic transgressiveness of music that promised a rawness that the Hayes Code-enforced movies could only hint at. So it’s only natural that Varese head Robert Townson …Read On »

The cost was high and the dips were low but all nine couples threw themselves into character for a chance to feel like a part of a bona fide classic Disney feature. Some worked extremely well, others lacked the typical Walt Disney flair. Robert Herjavec & Kym …Read On »

CD Review: 1864 and ALLIES soundtracks

ALLIES soundtrack | ©2015 Movie Score Media

Movie Score Media’s quality releases continue to be not only a major source for discovering new composers whose attendant projects barely hit U.S. shores, but also a great way to hear relatively obscure foreign soundtracks done by sometimes eminent American musicians – in both notable cases here performed in the key of war. Early on in Marco Beltrami’s career, the composer wrote one of his most interesting psycho-killer scores for a deranged female cellist, albeit in the guise of a period costume drama for Norwegian director Ole Bornedal’s 2002 thriller I AM DINA. Now Beltrami reteams with him for a …Read On »

Sheppard, Jim Beaver, Ruth Connell, Curtis Armstrong Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Rashaad Ernesto Green Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 1, 2015 Although it’s generally not a good thing on SUPERNATURAL when Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are separated for much of the episode, it actually works in “Inside Man.” Although the brothers come together at a few points, Sam is mostly off with Castiel (Misha Collins), still trying to figure out how to rid Dean of the Mark of …Read On »

Stars: Noah Galloway, Robert Herjavec, Patti LaBelle, Nastia Liukin, Riker Lynch, Michael Sam, Suzanne Somers, Chris Soules, Rumer Willis, Willow Shields Network: ABC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: April 6th, 2015 It’s inevitable every season on DANCING WITH THE STARS. Rumors fly of a hook-up between one or more of the couples. Sometimes it’s true, sometimes we are lead to believe it’s true for ratings. Either way Val Chmerkovskiy has had his fair share of  tongues wagging, first with Kelly Monaco in the all-star season and then last season with Janal Parrish. Derek Hough publicly hooked up with Shannon Elizabeth his …Read On »
