In Epix’s political satire GRAVES, Hudson plays another Jacob, Jacob Mann, who is an adviser to former U.S. president Richard Graves (Nick Nolte), whose wife Margaret (Sela Ward) has ambitions of her own.

Movie Review: RUN ALL NIGHT

RUN ALL NIGHT poster | ©2015 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Ed Harris, Vincent D’Onofrio, Bruce McGill, Genesis Rodriguez, Nick Nolte, Common, Boyd Holbrook, Holt McCallany Writer: Brad Ingelsby Director: Jaume Collet-Serra Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: March 13, 2015 RUN ALL NIGHT is one of those movies that could be a lot better, but it could also be a lot worse. If one can accept the colossal coincidence that fuels the action, it has solid emotional underpinnings, a strong cast and a snazzy visual style courtesy of director Jaume Collet-Serra. On the flip side, writer Brad Ingelsby’s on-the-nose dialogue tends to undercut the […]Read On »

In Fox’s GRACEPOINT, which has its first-season finale tonight, Thursday December 11 at 9 PM, the small California coastal town has been all but ripped apart by the murder of young Danny Solano. As in BROADCHURCH, the U.K. series that is GRACEPOINT’s source material, an out of town reporter is one of those most responsible for stirring things up, to the point where one local commits suicide due to a campaign of harassment in the press. Here, the reckless journalist is called Renee Fleming. She’s played by Jessica Lucas, who was also one of the leads in last season’s CULT […]Read On »

GRACEPOINT, the ten-episode miniseries airing in weekly installments on Fox beginning Thursday, October 2, is based on the eight-part British miniseries BROADCHURCH. In both, a young boy is found murdered in a small coastal town and in both, an outside police detective is brought in to supervise the case. He works with a local female police detective whose young son was the victim’s best friend. One more similarity between the two versions – in both, David Tennant plays the new-to-town detective (called Alec Hardy in BROADCHURCH and Emmett Carver in GRACEPOINT). Dan Futterman and his wife and frequent writing partner […]Read On »

CD Review: NORTH DALLAS FORTY soundtrack (2,000 edition)

NORTH DALLAS 40 soundtrack | ©2010 Film Score Monthly

One of the more curious composer-to-picture match-ups in the 70’s was throwing John Scott, a genteel English composer renowned for such classically lush scores as ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA and THE COUSTEAU ODYSSEY, into the very macho game of football- and we aren’t talking the Euro definition of guys kicking around a pigskin. Yet it’s exactly that strongly thematic sense of drama that let NORTH DALLAS FORTY make a memorable touchdown as one of America’s better sports films. Credit Canadian director Ted Kocheff, who’d worked with Scott on the equally unlikely Aussie thriller WAKE IN FRIGHT to let the composer make […]Read On »

CD Review: 48 HRS. soundtrack

48 HRS. soundtrack | © 2011 Intrada Records

While James Horner showed he could go where no Enterprise scorer had gone before with his breakthrough, nautical-styled space adventure for 1982’s STAR TREK II, it would be that year’s 48 HRS. which truly showed him off as being far from a one-note composer. If audiences hadn’t seen this kind of hilariously foul-mouthed, squib-filled “buddy cop” movie before, then they certainly hadn’t heard the vibrant, ethnic spin that Horner put on the genre – a ferociously energetic approach that made KHAN’s musical wrath sound positively sedate by comparison. Horner likely keyed off of the manic urban energy that filled Eddie […]Read On »
