THE GOOD PLACE, per NBC’s new Thursday-night comedy – which has a special premiere on Monday, September 19 – is where you go after death if you’ve been a wonderful person. Turns out that, in life, humans are graded by deed, and only the top percentage make it here. How good is the good place?

She’s here through a clerical error, but now desperately trying to be good so no one finds […]Read On »

From the poignantly realized rural Texas of Conan creator Robert E. Howard that comprised THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD to the epic fantasy realms of  THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA and the unforgiving western territory of SERPAHIM FALLS, English composer Harry Gregson-Williams has taken listeners into unique, and powerfully encompassing musical landscapes with a sense of invention. But perhaps no vast subject of of his is sung with the feeling of one man’s resourceful personality like THE MARTIAN, a film that marks Williams’ most surprisingly intimate teaming with stylist supreme Ridley Scott after his work on KINGDOM OF HEAVEN and contributions to […]Read On »
