Stars: Phoebe Fox, Helen McCrory, Oaklee Pendergast, Jeremy Irvine, Leanne Best Writer: Jon Croker based on a story by Susan Hill Director: Tom Harper Distributor: Relativity / Hammer Films Original Release Date: January 2, 2015 One of the better haunted house films in the last ten years was 2012’s THE WOMAN IN BLACK – an eerie period film that was produced by the newly rejuvenated British film company Hammer. Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, starred in that film which was a great, old school British horror movie with just the right amount of scares and a truly great film ghost […]Read On »

CD Review: OUR MAN FLINT and IN LIKE FLINT soundtracks

OUR MAN FLINT and IN LIKE FLINT soundtrack | ©2014 Intrada Records

In the ying-yang universe of deserved film score karma, Jerry Goldsmith might have ended up with flying with SUPERGIRL instead of SUPERMAN, or battling a SWARM of killer bees as opposed to climbing THE TOWERING INFERNO. But that never meant that Goldsmith didn’t give his musical all to some truly wacky wannabes, especially when it came to putting on a lady killing outfit for America’s Z.O.W.I.E. agent Derek Flint (as opposed to musically tailoring that certain other British spy). But as 60s-jazz as John Barry might have gotten with Her Majesty’s Secret Service, one couldn’t imagine that composer scaling the […]Read On »

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING composer Johann Johannsson gets scientific – Interview

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING soundtrack | ©2014 +180 Records

One could say it’s the cold, volcanic icescape of the earth’s most forbidding land mass that have often infused Johann Johannsson’s music with a beautifully foreboding presence. Like his innovative countrywoman Bjork, Johannsson received art-music acclaim by merging modern classical and alternative music to haunted and mesmerizing effect, creating a series of conceptual albums like “Englaborn” and “Dis” at the same time he began scoring a myriad of shorts, features and documentaries – usually involving brooding, disaffected characters he could apply a psychologically-minded musical style to (even giving ennui to prairie dogs in the process). With his songs playing a […]Read On »

Movie Review: OPEN WINDOWS

OPEN WINDOWS movie poster | ©2014 Cinedigm

Rating: R Stars: Elijah Wood, Sasha Grey, Neil Maskell Writer: Nacho Vigalondo Director: Nacho Vigalondo Distributor: Cinedigm Release Date: November 7, 2014 OPEN WINDOWS declares its intentions right from the start, when we appear to be watching an especially cheesy horror movie starring scream queen Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey). Then it turns out we’re watching a trailer, being watched at a convention, which is in turn being streamed live on the computer of Nick Chambers (Elijah Wood). We can’t say we weren’t stylistically warned that the film is going to play more than a few tricks on its characters and […]Read On »

Edgar Ramirez is THE LIBERATOR – Exclusive Interview

Edgar Ramirez as THE LIBERATOR | ©2014 Cohen Media Group

With few exceptions, Latin American actors have rarely had the chance to play the hero in major Hollywood epics, let alone for historical pictures that explored a time well before the lethal morass of troubles that stand for the sad state south of the border. But over 200 years ago, the entire continent promised to be united as a shining, freedom-respecting star to the world in the tradition of the American and French Revolutions – a dream led by the dashing figure of Simon Bolivar. Born in Venezuela and educated overseas, this one time, aimless member of the upper class […]Read On »

CD Review: KILLER FORCE / THE CORRUPT ONES – 500 limited edition soundtrack

KILLER FORCE / THE CORRUPT ONES soundtrack | ©2013 Music Box Records

Sure they might release such elegantly prestigious Euro scores as Georges Delerue’s THE CONFORMIST and Philippe Rombi’s WAR OF THE BUTTONS. But Music Box Records is perhaps even more fun when handle kitschily entertaining works by such composers us Yanks have never heard of like Michael Magne’s EMMANUEL 4 and Serge Franklin’s LE GRANDE PARDON. Now of particular, disco-ish delight is George Garvarentz’s score to 1976s KILLER FORCE (aka THE DIAMOND MERCENARIES), one of those all-star Anglo thrillers that provided fun South African vacations to such Americans as Telly Savalas, Peter Fonda and O.J. Simpson, here ripping off some precious […]Read On »

CD Review: THE SALAMANDER soundtrack

THE SALAMANDER soundtrack | ©2013 Prometheus Records

An entertaining, obscure 1981 political thriller that stands as one of the nuttier pictures that Jerry Goldsmith scored is now just as remarkable for becoming one of the best, and boisterously re-performed soundtracks that the legendary composer has gotten. That’s thanks to the always-excellent triple-threat of album producer James Fitzpatrick, conductor Nic Raine and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, who follow up their recent take on Goldsmith’s HOUR OF THE GUN with an album that will completely blow fans away. This musical masterwork accompanied Franco Nero as a hapless Italian police whose investigation into a series of […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Terrence Howard, Maria Bello, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano Writer: Aaron Guzikowski Director: Denis Villeneuve Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: September 20, 2013 PRISONERS is a two-and-a-half-hour thriller that raises some difficult questions, making them intense and uncomfortable enough for us to ponder even after the film is over. It also boasts strong performances by leads Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, as well as a potent supporting cast headed up by Terrence Howard and Viola Davis. However, director Denis Villeneuve and writer Aaron Guzikowski wind up downplaying a number of central issues […]Read On »
