However, the season finale ended on such a note of “Holy !!!!” that it almost didn’t matter what preceded it. Given this preamble, Season 7 hits the ground running with “Are You […]Read On »

CD Review: UNFORGETTABLE soundtrack (1100 copies limited edition)

UNFORGETTABLE soundtrack |©2011 Perseverance Records

It seemed only natural that Christopher Young’s talents for melodic darkness would evolve from the satanic strains of his HELLRAISER-ish scores, and put him on the more “respectable” map of the romantic mystery thriller, a genre he was particularly prolific with in the ’90’s in such scores as COPYCAT, DREAM LOVER, HUSH and JENNIFER 8. Perhaps Young’s most interesting, and romantically yearning score during that decade was 1996’s UNFORGETTABLE. John Dahl’s now-cult film saw Ray Liotta using a memory regressing drug to ferret out his wife’s killer, a process whose elements of sci-fi and horror allowed Young to use the […]Read On »

TV Review: DEXTER – SEASON 5 – “Hop a Freighter”

Michael C. Hall in DEXTER - Season 5 | © 2010 Showtime

In “Hop a Freighter,” things come to a head, with Dexter (Michael C. Hall) discovering the surveillance equipment ex-cop Liddy (Peter Weller) has planted in his apartment. Wrongly believing the spy cameras were planted by Deb’s (Jennifer Carpenter) current partner/love interest Quinn (Desmond Harrington), Dexter tries to catch him in the act. Instead, Liddy catches Dexter, but of course Liddy seriously underestimates the table-turning abilities of our guy.

TV Review: DEXTER – SEASON 5 – ‘Circle Us’

The DEXTER episode “Circle Us” may be a good indicator that when Dexter (Michael C. Hall) is mulling things over rather than reaching epiphanies, the episode tends to feel like its holding back, even when its action lunges forward. Such is the case here.
