Fox’s new series GRACEPOINT, Thursdays at 9 PM, is an American remake of the BBC’s BROADCHURCH, with some changes. In both, a young boy is murdered in a small coastal town – English in BROADCHURCH, Northern Californian in GRACEPOINT – and in both, just about everyone is a suspect. Also in both versions, David Tennant plays in a police detective, brought in from outside by the local force to head up the investigation. One of several changes, however, is that the dead boy’s family in GRACEPOINT is Episcopalian. Kevin Rankin plays the Reverend Paul Coates, who has a close relationship […]Read On »

Interview: WRATH OF THE TITANS composer Javier Navarrete fights for gods and men

In WRATH OF THE TITANS, a menagerie of ancient beasts and angry gods are unleashed upon the world of men, all due to the declining prayers directed at Zeus and his brethren on Mount Olympus. However, Hollywood’s cinematic worship towards ancient Greece’s supreme being, let alone legendary deities in general, is more than boisterous given the current films inspired by the mythic clashes of old. Not only are these pictures a boon for today’s CGI effects wizards to indulge in their Ray Harryhausen-inspired love of stop-motion giant monsters, but they’re equally heaven-sent for composers to unleash the own musically epic […]Read On »

Movie Review: WRATH OF THE TITANS

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Edgar Ramirez, Toby Kebbell, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Danny Huston, John Bell Writers: Dan Mazeau & David Leslie Johnson, story by Greg Berlanti & David Leslie Johnson & Dan Mazeau Director: Jonathan Liebesman Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: March 30, 2012 WRATH OF THE TITANS is actually more or less okay, but there are a number of elements that offer themselves up for nitpicking criticism at the outset. For one thing, while “titans” was being used figuratively to describe large and imposing beings and monsters in this movie’s forerunner, 2010’s CLASH […]Read On »
