The Runners-Up and Composers to Watch of 2016 The Runners-Up CAPTAIN FANTASTIC  (Alex Somers / Lakeshore) More proof that those in touch with Iceland’s musical spirit animal are blessed with an ability to capture profound emotion through unusual means, American-born Alex Somers’ work with the band Sigur Ros (and its essential continuation with its bandmate as Jonsi and Alex) now yields a score of singular spirituality as Somers tracks a family of ultra liberals who’ve have truly gone off society’s reservation. His soundtrack’s beautifully ethereal melodies are a unique mix of alt. rock sampling, angelic choruses, Native American winds, accordion […]Read On »

TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 9 Premiere – “The Magician’s Apprentice” and “The Witch’s Familiar”

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Michelle Gomez Writer: Steven Moffat Director: Hettie Macdonald Original Telecast: September 19th & 26th, 2014 Network: BBC America The first season of DOCTOR WHO where a new regeneration of The Doctor is introduced is always a bit of a dicey phase. The Doctor is never really who is he is going to be with his new face, and you kind of have to get around all of the more unstable parts of his personality post regeneration. Having said that I did enjoy Peter Capaldi’s first season as the new 12th Doctor. The writing wasn’t completely […]Read On »

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Steven Moffat  Director: Rachel Talalay  Original Telecast: November 8, 2014 Network: BBC America Once again I find myself faced with writing a review of DOCTOR WHO and having to drop all kinds of spoilers to do an effective job. I usually shy away from spoilers, but I just have so many questions buzzing around in my head after “Death in Heaven” that I have to bring up things that we game changing, or even just confusing in this season’s finale. Again, let’s just start with Danny Pink (Sam Anderson) is dead. Still dead that […]Read On »

Rated: PG-13 Stars: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Mackenzie Foy Writer: Melissa Rosenberg based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer Director: Bill Condon Release Date: November 16, 2012 **SPOILER ALERT – If you haven’t read the books you may read things here you didn’t already know** Could OMG! OMG! OMG! suffice for a movie review?  From the moment the credits opened in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 I had goosebumps.  The film opens where Part 1 ended, as we see the world through Bella’s (Kristen Stewart) newborn red, vampiric eyes seeing for the first time floating […]Read On »

Stars: Lauren Ambrose, Steven Pasquale, Joe Morton, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods, Richard Dreyfuss, Geena Davis Writer: John J. McLaughlin based on the book by Robin Cook Director: Mikael Salomon Original Telecast: August 5, 2012 Network: A&E If the first night of the two-part, four-hour COMA miniseries wasn’t enough torture, A&E delivers a second half that’s more excruciating as the first. Why, oh, why did this suck so bad? Here’s an example of how COMA fails miserably: whenever something interesting or suspenseful happens, suddenly the characters start looking at charts and talking ominous about what’s on the page. Or in other […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Final Judgment, Part 2” – And the Top 24 is …

AMERICAN IDOL Season 11 Final Judgment Part 2 | (c) 2012 Fox

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 23, 2012 The drama was thick in the previous episode of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, as the judges narrowed the competition to just 24 semi-finalists. All the while the drama was playing out they walked contestants through a dark hallway, through smoke and flashing lights and into the rotunda of doom. A very silly ending to the show that begins the live performances next week. While most of the people that were eliminated we had seen […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 15, 2012 Seacrest last week said that this final round of “Hollywood Week” on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, would be the “most drama ever” – yes, taking a page out of THE BACHELOR’s book o’ promotions. Well, it was dramarific for sure with the culmination of the dreaded group night where every year singers crash and burn under the pressure, the rehearsal and having to work with others. And to no one’s surprise it was full […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 9, 2012 Was the first episode of Hollywood Round a new low for the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL? I was reading a slew of reports about showing Symone Black falling from the stage and ending the show that way didn’t do the shows credibility any favors because it showed it wasn’t really interested or caring toward the individuals of the show. Credibility? Really? We are talking about a show that basically tells a bunch of amateur singers […]Read On »
