Rating: PG-13 Stars: Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin, Bill Camp, Jaeden Lieberher, Danielle Rose Russell, Dennis “Bumpy” Kanahele Writer: Cameron Crowe Director: Cameron Crowe Distributor: Columbia Pictures/Sony Release Date: May 29, 2015 There are some really wonderful things in writer/director Cameron Crowe’s ALOHA that are balanced out by some things that are mundane or even baffling (why, if it is important to the story that a character named Allison Ng is one-quarter Hawaiian, cast an actress who looks four-quarters Nordic? If you want to use her, great, just say she grew […]Read On »

CD Review: ST. VINCENT soundtrack

ST. VINCENT soundtrack | ©2014 Sony Classical Records

MARLEY AND ME composer Theodore Shapiro has always had a thing for the comedic underdog in such scores as DIARY OF A WIMPY KID, THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY and ONCE CHANCE, all while creating clearly distinct musical characters for these seeming losers, whether it be wacky percussion, dream-like melody or operatic triumph. But he’s likely never gotten a true, cantankerous schlub like Bill Murray’s boozing Vietnam vet who seems to be anything but ST. VINCENT. Yet like all of his previous life-losers, Shapiro finds a heart of gold underneath them with his catchy, rhythmic approach. The trick here […]Read On »

A great story, fantastic special effects, stellar imagination, sharp direction and a cast at the top of their comedic game, this 1984 classic stands tall. No one has ever been able to top it (not even the 1989 sequel) and no one likely will. Now both films have been remastered in 4K and reissued on Blu-ray to honor […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Bill Murray, Laura Linney, Samuel West, Olivia Colman, Elizabeth Marvel, Eleanor Bron, Olivia Williams, Elizabeth Wilson Writer: Richard Nelson Director: Roger Michell Distributor: Focus Features Release Date: December 7, 2012 HYDE PARK ON HUDSON is the name of a real place, the country home in upstate New York where President Franklin Delano Roosevelt lived with his mother when he wasn’t in Washington, D.C. It’s pure coincidence that there’s another famous Hyde in the public consciousness – as in DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE – but this movie has a sense of that second Hyde’s schizophrenia. When HYDE […]Read On »

CD Review: SCROOGED (3,000 edition)

SCROOGED soundtrack | ©2011 La La Land Records

Danny Elfman has never made any bones that the holiday has always been a dead man’s party for him, particularly with his cheerfully demonic, and demented holiday score that updated Ebenezer into a miserly, public-hating and altogether sleazy TV executive. Just as circus music is ingrained into Danny Elfman’s musical DNA, the holiday trimmings of sleigh bells, caroling and snowflake-like melodies have kept showing up in the Hanukkah-celebrating composer’s work, even when his scores weren’t about Christmas. But among the soundtracks that have directly dealt with the holiday like EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, BATMAN RETURNS, THE NIGHMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and FAMILY MAN, […]Read On »
