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 »

Movie Review: A CURE FOR WELLNESS

A CURE FOR WELLNESS | © 2017 20th Century Fox

Rating: R Stars: Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth, Harry Groener, Celia Imrie Writer: Justin Haythe, story by Gore Verbinski & Justin Haythe Director: Gore Verbinski Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date: February 17, 2017 A CURE FOR WELLNESS plays like Roman Polanski and Terry Gilliam had a cinematic baby – which got kidnapped and reared by Roger Corman in the last third. WELLNESS goes from beautifully photographed, slow-burn suspense to a Gothic gonzonana finish. The spooky part is mostly a worthwhile experience (with a few caveats), but it has a jaw-dropping change of tone that obliterates the earlier mood. […]Read On »

It’s not that it defies big-budget tent-pole movie conventions. Indeed, it has all sorts of set-pieces that are indebted to previous films, including but not limited to the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN series that so gainfully employed star Johnny Depp, director […]Read On »

Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films held the World Premiere of THE LONE RANGER at Disney California Adventure Park at Disneyland in Anaheim on June 22nd.

The carpet ran down the Park’s iconic Hollywood Blvd. and screened in two theaters – Hyperion Theater and The Silver Theatre. If you are old […]Read On »

CD Review: RANGO Original Soundtrack

Rango soundtrack | ©2011 Anti Records

After scoring 2-D critters in the African savannah, under the sea and bounding about the tropics of Madagascar, Hans Zimmer takes a three dimensional trip South of the Border to come up with his most delightfully hip soundtrack yet for funny animals- in this case the pistol packing cold bloods and carrion who inhabit the range of RANGO. Applying the same in-your-face zest that gave a major shot of new musical life to the warhorse of SHERLOCK HOLMES, Zimmer has his way with the old west’s movie music clichés, infusing the shoot-out trumpets, electric guitars, player pianos and every other […]Read On »

Paramount Pictures held the Los Angeles Premiere of RANGO on February 14 at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood, CA. Fans were everywhere and when Johnny Depp arrived the screams were deafening. Johnny took the time to go to each section and sign as many autographs as he could. The carpet was a sand color to match an “Old West” theme that was the backgrounds that ran the carpet. RANGO is from the director of THE PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, Gore Verbinski, and features Depp in an original animated comedy-adventure that takes place in the Wild West. The story follows […]Read On »
