X-MEN: FIRST CLASS is now in theaters! Many of you might read this series of editorials before you see the movie, and some after, but be warned there are some spoilerish elements in play. Basically, our idea was to create a series of character guides to the main players of FIRST CLASS, to give people a bit of a working knowledge of where the characters in the movie have their comic book origins, and how those origins compare to their big screen counterparts. This is a taste of the comics for those who haven’t spent their lives reading and archiving […]Read On »

Interview: THOR composer Patrick Doyle wields the mighty musical hammer

Thor soundtrack © 2011 Buena Vista Records

Save those puny electronic action scores for mere mortals. For if there’s one composer who’s brought down the symphonic thunder of the composing gods, then his name would be inscribed as Patrick Doyle. Receiving his musical and acting education in his native Scotland, Doyle’s dual artistic threats would strike up a winning collaboration with Kenneth Branagh, whom Doyle beat for an actual billing when both starred in CHARIOTS OF FIRE. Branagh would scantly toil in the background for long, as his theatrical flair allowed him to take a 9 million dollar gamble behind, and in front of the camera with […]Read On »

THOR - Sif teaser poster | ©2011 Marvel/Paramount

THOR has wowed fans and casual moviegoers alike with its ability to weave the high-falutin’ Asgardian mythos into the otherwise Earthbound and technology-driven Marvel movie saga. Of course we’ll be seeing the Thunder God swinging Mjolnir with a variety of costumed cohorts and once more dealing with the dastardly doings of Loki when THE AVENGERS arrives in theaters next year. Since there are so many other solo adventures the son of Odin might yet embark upon, where will Thor go next when it’s time for the inevitable THOR 2 sequel? Who will he meet? Who will he battle? Who will […]Read On »
