Doctor Strange End Titles Score

I’d be the first person to admit that the scores for most Marvel Studios movies have been less than memorable (at this point only two tracks from Henry Jackman’s theme to Captain America: The Winter Soldier stick in my mind at, and those are ‘Winter Soldier’ and ‘Lemurian Star’) and that’s taking into account ALL […]

Postmortem: The Fury (1978)

I am mystified why Brian DePalma’s The Fury (based on the novel by John Farris) hasn’t been remade because not only would the movie benefit from a more timely interpretation (in these days of government programs we often don’t completely understand, but fear a reboot could potentially find a very receptive audience) and a more […]

Tron: Legacy Sequel On The Way!

I’ve been saying that there would be a sequel to Tron: Legacy for the longest time–despite the fact that the Joseph Kosinski-directed sequel to 1979’s Tron was pretty uneven and didn’t actually make all that much money, relatively speaking. It earned $400 million on a $170 million budget, which isn’t by any means a failure, but […]

Tron 3 Shooting This Fall?

I’ll believe it when I see it. Take this with a huge grain of salt, for two reasons.  First, the last I heard Joseph Kosinski was aiming to shoot Gran Turismo (a racing video game), which means that that if the sequel to Tron: Legacy is indeed shooting this fall, the likelihood that he would be […]

Jersey Boys Trailers 1 & 2

Here are the latest trailers from Clint Eastwood‘s film, Jersey Boys, purportedly the story of Frankie Valli (considering his original name was Francesco Stephen Castelluccio ‘Frankie Valli’ rolls off the tongue much, much easier) and The Four Seasons.  It’s not the type of movie I am typically drawn to, but if it happened to be on television […]

‘Mummy Calls,’ To My Surprise, Is A Real Band

A large part of my enjoyment of Joel Schumacher‘s The Lost Boys came from the music it featured.  Schumacher always had an eye, or should I say an ear, for matching popular music to his productions, and The Lost Boys was no different.  The soundtrack contained some great songs by artists like Gerald McMann, Echo And […]

‘Pacific Rim’ Effects Video

The visuals of this clip are provided by Mirada Studios, about the making of the prologue from Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pacific Rim.  Those effects are pretty impressive, though what seems to be lost amongst all that visual wizardry is the music behind the trailer, which is provided by Ramin Djawadi (pronounced Java-dee). The track is […]

A ‘Horse’s Mouth’ Worth Looking Into

The old proverb says “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth,” though Cy Curnin’s latest solo release “The Horses’s Mouth” is well worth closer inspection. The album, produced by Curnin and Nick Jackson, is thematically more optimistic than 2012’s “Solar Minimum.” Though I don’t imply that “The Horse’s Mouth” is the first time that […]
