When it comes to the sound of military heroism, few of today’s movie composers can signal an old-school orchestral brass salute like Alan Silvestri. From bombastically playing the dark march of Stallone’s JUDGE DREDD to capturing the steely commando skills of Schwarzenegger in ERASER and PREDATOR, this one-time synthesist for the easygoing motorcycle cops of CHiPS has become the go-to composer for the epic sound of super soldiers, most recently with the wisecracking adventure of THE A-TEAM and the techno-symphonic gadgets wielded by the G.I. JOE squadron. For a composer who always brings out the big thematic guns in the […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Dominic Cooper, Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones Writers: Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely Director: Joe Johnston Distributor: Paramount Pictures Release Date: July 21, 2011 There’s nothing terribly wrong with CAPTAIN AVENGER: THE FIRST AVENGER as these things go.

Alas, Steve doesn’t meet the U.S. Army’s health requirements, but he is ultimately brought into an experimental unit. Thanks to a […]Read On »

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 »

With the new Marvel comics adaptation of THOR hitting theaters today, the film has not only created one new rising star with Chris Hemsworth as the titular character, but also with Tom Hiddleston who plays the villainous Loki (and brother to Thor).

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 »
