Blu-ray Review: GODS OF EGYPT

GODS OF EGYPT | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

Cast: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gerard Butler, Chadwick Boseman, Emma Booth, Rachael Black, Elodie Yung, Brenton Thwaites, Courtney Eaton Writers: Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless Director: Alex Proyas Distributor: Lionsgate Home Entertainment My experience with GODS OF EGYPT differs quite a bit from the lambasting it has taken from the critics when it first arrived in theaters, but I may have those same critics to thank for it. I had such extremely low expectations going in and that may have contributed to actually enjoying an amazingly over-the-top CG laden film that fictionalizes the powerful deities place among mortals. When I first saw the […]Read On »

Tamara Taylor is now in her tenth year of playing Dr. Camille Saroyan on BONES. The romantic comedy/drama procedural on Fox Network, currently Thursdays at 8 PM, is in its eleventh season; one year after BONES debuted, Taylor joined the cast as the head of the forensics lab at Washington, D.C.’s prestigious (albeit fictional) Jeffersonian Institute.

For another, the lab’s entomologist, and Cam’s friend, Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne), has lost the use of his legs in an […]Read On »

The BONES Season 11 episode “The Murder of the Meninist” takes exception to this notion, while still finding examples of a couple of areas where […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE FINEST HOURS

THE FINEST HOURS | © 2016 Disney Home Video

Interesting that Disney has done something that doesn’t involve their fairy tale franchise, Marvel or LucasFilm. Not often we see a standalone movie from the massive corporation that doesn’t have any ties to the stuff that makes it the big bucks. But with THE FINEST HOURS we have an action film based on true events about the Coast Guard saving a merchant sea vessel after it gets split in half and those that survive are restlessly keeping it afloat. The visuals are pretty cool because how the hell does a boat stay floating after it has been sliced literally in […]Read On »

CD Review: THE ARK AND THE DELUGE soundtrack

THE ARK AND THE DELUGE soundtrack | ©2016 Music Box Records

Few film genres allow composers to write tone poems in the guise of scores like nature documentaries, their music getting to chronicle the grace, joy and life or death struggles of the planet in all of its infinite musical equivocations of the life force. Gabriel Yared set out to sea to in 1993 to sumptuously chronicle the glorious ballet between ocean and air. Hearing this glorious wash of melodic impressionism, you’re reminded that this Oscar-winning Lebanese composer just might be film scoring’s answer to France’s Claude Debussy, his DELUGE a cross between the flowing, romantic strings of “La Mer” as crossed […]Read On »
