And finally, we will end our show with what we’re dorking out about this week, including Larry Wilmore’s new podcast and which SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE cast member should run for president.

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of Joss Whedon’s groundbreaking, cult-adored, academically-studied TV series BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. The series, which ran for five years on The WB and another two on UPN (both of which have since merged into The CW) starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy Summers, an initially reluctant Slayer who was destined to kill monsters and prevent the end of the world (a lot) in the town of Sunnydale, California. Camden Toy played three of Buffy’s most iconic nemeses, and then went over to the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER spinoff ANGEL to play yet another monster. […]Read On »

Composer Paul Haslinger gives a furious groove to RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER – Interview

When synth retro is all the rage in today’s scoring scene with the likes of STRANGER THINGS and IT FOLLOWS, Paul Haslinger can count himself as one of the O.G. genre gangsters whose exciting music for creatures, gunplay and kick-ass heroes has never stopped mutating. An Austrian bandmate in the seminal progressive synth-rock group Tangerine Dream during such seminal soundtrack likes as NEAR DARK and MIRACLE MILE, Haslinger immigrated to Hollywood with a prolifically successful scoring career. He’d venture from the cool, teen-centric electronic grooves of such scores as CHEATERS, CRAZY / BEAUTIFUL and BLUE CRUSH to a career-making partnership with the vampiric Lycan slayer Selene on […]Read On »

Benjamin Wallfisch scores A CURE FOR WELLNESS – Interview

Madness and the curse of centuries-old grotesqueries have rarely been as elegantly conveyed as A CURE FOR WELLNESS, an auspicious entry into the time-honored genre of the sane man trapped in an insane asylum – or in this case a Swiss Alps spa seemingly dedicated to the spiritual, and physical health of its decrepit well-healed clientele. Much like a funeral director with obsessive detail to make an unholy mess spic and span, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and RING director Gore Verbinski has ensured that his institute resounds with old world, aristocratic class, all the better to hide the demonic suffering its delightfully […]Read On »

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we review THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, the eighth movie in the popular movie series.

In Part 2 of Assignment X’s exclusive interview with TOMMY’S HONOUR director Jason Connery, the filmmaker talks about class differences, making present-day Scotland look as it did in the 1800s, and how the movie reflects his relationships with his own father and son. ASSIGNMENT X: How did you find all of your locations in present-day Scotland that you could make to look like late 1800s Scotland? JASON CONNERY: Well, there are a number of things. We shot the film in thirty-three days, and we had fifty locations. So the opening shot, where you’re flying along over the sea and then […]Read On »

A father who is a master craftsman is eager to pass his wisdom on to his eldest son. However, the son, rather than follow in his father’s footsteps, longs to use what the father makes to blaze his own path. In TOMMY’S HONOUR, this classic tale of family tension in Scotland is fact-based. The film won the BAFTA Scotland Award for Best Feature Film. Thomas “Old Tom” Morris, played in the film by Peter Mullan, designed fifty classic golf courses during his lifetime (1821-1908), as well as being a master maker of golf clubs. His son Tommy Morris, played by […]Read On »
