For your reading pleasure, I present to you an entirely 100 percent Charlie Sheen-free column (well, except for the headling and the photo to the left). Don’t say I don’t ever do anything nice for you. And you’re welcome. ‘VOICE’ OF REASON Singer Christina Aguilera has signed on to be a judge on NBC’s AMERICAN IDOL rip-off THE VOICE. Considering she’s been spending most of her week in front of a judge, this is a big step up for Aguilera. This is great news for the contestants, too. Finally, someone can give them useful real-world advice about how to behave […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Shane West is after the femme of NIKITA

If the title of the CW’s NIKITA, airing Thursdays at 9 PM, sounds a bit familiar, that’s because it started life as the 1990 French feature film LA FEMME NIKITA, which was remade in English as the 1993 POINT OF NO RETURN, then turned into a TV series that ran from 1997-2001. The series concerned a young woman coerced into being a ferociously effective assassin for a mysterious group. The new NIKITA is a sequel of sorts, with Nikita, played by Maggie Q, having forcefully parted ways with her erstwhile employers and now seeking to bring their entire operation down. […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: BAMBI – Diamond Edition

BAMBI DIAMOND EDITION | © 2011 Walt Disney Home Entertainment

Suggested Retail Price: $39.99 Release Date: March 1, 2011 As modern day children’s films continually shoot for bigger, better and eye-strain inducing 3D, there’s something to be said for simplicity. BAMBI, the fifth full length animated film from Walt Disney Studios and originally released in 1942, has stood the test of time with its beautiful hand-drawn animation and the elegant beauty in creating a forest and woodland creatures that still resonate today. I’m not arguing that artistry doesn’t go into CGI animated features or even the occasional hand-drawn animated film that slips through the cracks -–but with Walt Disney (the […]Read On »

CD Review: THE YOUNG RIDERS soundtrack (1200 edition)

THE YOUNG RIDERS soundtrack | © 2011 La La Land Records

Whether it’s ROAR or THE CAPE, television has unabashedly turned every big screen hit from BRAVEHEART to BATMAN into show’s whose themes were just discernable enough to avoid legal outrage. Such was the case of this YOUNG GUNS-esque adventure that ran from 1989 to 1992. The concept here was to turn teen outlaws into equally hot Pony Express riders, whose saddles would be filled by the likes of Stephen Baldwin and Josh Brolin. Another growing talent would be John Debney, who was sowing his musical oats on such movie spin-off shows as FAME and POLICE ACADEMY before taking on RIDERS […]Read On »

CD Review: FIRST BLOOD soundtrack

This might not be the first time that Jerry Goldsmith’s inimitable action score has been released, but it likely won’t get better than Intrada’s “ultimate” edition, whose two CD’s feature FIRST BLOOD’s original cues and composer-sequenced soundtrack album. While Goldsmith would grow with Rambo’s transformation into a muscle-packed fighting machine, perhaps none of the composers’ three scores for the series packed the vulnerability, and even dare say tenderness, of a character that started off as a killable human being. It doesn’t take long for this mournful trumpet and guitar compassion to give way to Goldsmith’s way with the gracefully pounding […]Read On »

Stars: Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest Network: Fox, airs Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays Original Telecast: March 2, 2011 So last night was a mixture of good and very bad on the greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. But tonight the chicks are in the spotlight and as we have seen in the prior episodes, after you separate about five out of the men, the women have the most talent this year. So I am going in expecting big things and a much better overall performance from the ladies. Bah, you don’t care what else I say, so let’s get […]Read On »
