THE ZERO BOYS | © 2016 Arrow Video

Cast: Daniel Hirsch, Kelli Maroney, Nicole Rio, Tom Shell, Jared Moses, Crystal Carson Writers: Robert Gilliam, Nico Mastorakis Director: Nico Mastorakis Distributor: Arrow Video THE ZERO BOYS is so 80s it hurts. Filled with numerous clichés that filled the decade, the film takes them all and packs them into an action thriller. From the big hair, to the horrendous treatment of women as objects, to the loud synthesized music and bad outdated references, it is a time capsule for the decade in a variety of ways. The film focuses on a group of paintball zeroes that worked hard and became […]Read On »

DICKENSIAN and RIPPER STREET soundtracks – CD Reviews

RIPPER STREET soundtrack | ©2016 Silva Screen Records

    The music of Victorian-to-Edwardian England has never been more interesting given the likes of Hans Zimmer’s SHERLOCK HOLMES, Charlie Mole’s MR. SELFRIDGE and John Lunn’s DOWNTON ABBEY. When given the spirit of such TV dream-team mash-ups like PENNY DREADFUL, the antiquated approach becomes positively hopping, especially as heard on English label Silva Screen’s releases of the BBC soundtracks to Debbie Wiseman’s DICKENSIAN and Dominik Scherrer’s RIPPER STREET, shows whose desperation-caked cobblestones ring with exciting, unbuttoned vibrancy. DICKENSIAN is turns the Marvel Universe into the Charles Dickens one as literary superheroes from such classic novels as A CHRISTMAS CAROL, GREAT EXPECTATIONS and THE OLD CURIOUSITY SHOP search for the […]Read On »

Good, if not excellent things can come to those who wait, which can be especially frustrating when it comes to a world where instant, visual gratification always comes first before music that can be equally as gratifying (if not more so) than the game it’s attached to. Now finally after three years, listeners will finally get to dive into Lorne Balfe’s terrific score for the 2013’s BEYOND: TWO SOULS. Game creator David Cage’s attempt to break down the line between movie and controller by having the player make choices that would creates fateful ripples across the rest of his experience – […]Read On »

LINK and POWDER soundtracks – CD Reviews

LINK soundtrack | ©2016 La La Land Records

here Jerry Goldsmith was lionized for any number of inventive, mainstream scores like BASIC INSTINCT, TOTAL RECALL and THE WIND AND THE LION, the composer had an equal knack for embodying idiosyncratic characters for movies well below the widely accepted radar like UNDER FIRE, THE SALAMANDER and THE TRAVELING EXECUTIONER. Goldsmith’s creativity flowed with noticeable enthusiasm for these soundtracks where he could show off his devilishly clever humor and emotional resonance, whether accompanying an orangutan manservant or a mystical albino. In his follow up to PSCYHO II for director Richard Franklin, Jerry Goldsmith was given the opportunity to play a not-so obviously lethal killer. Instead, […]Read On »

THE JUNGLE BOOK soundtrack – CD Review

With his father Louis Debney playing his part in the birth of Disney animation, it was only natural that his musically talented son John would get his start at the studio on his way to turning its beloved 1967 toon into an astonishing example of live action flesh and CGI fur. You can certainly hear the love tonight in Debney’s epic valentine to his alma mater, as well as the inimitable tunes of its greatest songsmiths The Sherman Brothers by reading THE JUNGLE BOOK as it scales new heights for the composer. Debney has done an impressive job segueing from Mickey […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE STUFF

THE STUFF | © 2016 Arrow Video

THE STUFF is one of those classic 80s flicks that has a lot going for it. First of all it is a mixture of both THE BLOB and zombie flicks but also a crack in the ribs at consumerism that was one of the general themes of many horror flicks back during the era. The plot is pretty interesting as well and not something we have seen used often as a trope among horror flicks. A weird goo oozes out of the ground in a remote location, so what’s the logical thing to do? Taste it, of course. Amazingly it […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE REVENANT

THE REVENANT | © 2016 Fox Home Entertainment

  THE REVENANT is a pretty amazing film from a variety of perspectives. Not only does it capture the beauty of the American Pacific Northwest during winter in the 1820s where pelters are encroaching on Native American territory, but it also captures the harsh and brutality of the wilderness and the danger involved in such endeavors. From the opening sequence that sees the Americans being attacked by a horde of Native Americans in one continuous brutal scene to the escape but not out of hot water yet as the Indians travel to kill the remaining men. Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), […]Read On »
