    Interview…Junkie XL on the Mondo Box Set of ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’

    It’s been a while since we chatted with Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL), and boy how his career has soared. It wasn’t enough to follow George Miller to the ends of the ear and destroy the sonic landscape with such raw and powerful drums. As an artist, he had to push farther, and we’re so glad he did. His signature blend of rhythms – a style that comes from deep down in his DNA – can be heard in all his scores no matter how far apart they seem on the surface. Are we saying that Mad Max: Fury Road, Mortal Engines and Sonic the Hedgehog are the same? Yes.…

    Interview…Author Eric Maikranz on ‘The Reincarnationist Papers’

    One of the biggest films hitting screens this years is the Antoine Fuqua-directed actioner Infinite. As far as recent heady sci-fi, it’s as wild, imaginative and complex as it comes. The story is adapted from a novel by D. Eric Maikranz and is part of a series where a handful of people recall their past life memories and reincarnate over and over again. These 28 people created a secret society called the Cognomina centuries ago so that they could associate with each other from one lifetime to another. They are, in effect, near immortals — compiling experiences and skills over diverse lifetimes into near superhuman abilities that they have used…

    Interview…GoSeeTalk Contributor Federico Furzan

    Hey, film fans. Hope you’re doing well. Can you believe it’s already June? I can honestly say that 2021 is, even at the halfway mark, tremendously better than 2020.

    G-S-T Review…’Nobody’

    Do this experiment: Remove Bob Odenkirk from Nobody. And try to see the film again without his presence. Is it actually a good film without its most prominent element? I believe it is, and this is how the film goes past its well-planned advertising campaign in which we simply saw a comedy actor in a role that wasn’t supposed to be his. Nobody is a surprise and not because it delivered an irreverent role. It’s a good film because its narrative works, the story is interesting enough, and it never stops to ask too much questions. It’s exactly what we look for in an action film. Nevertheless, of course Odenkirk…

    G-S-T Review…’The Water Man’

    When it comes to films dealing with tragedy and loss, it’s not very hard to identify some blueprints that every piece of the plot follows. It seems Hollywood is set on showing a final moment, a grief stricken character that can’t let go, and the burning sensation of “it was all for nothing”. I’m sure not every film has to meet these rules, but it’s part of a general, manipulative trend. Death appears to sell. In The Water Man, we feel like we’re part of a known scheme. This is something that can clearly be identified in its first act. However, as the plot is unraveled we come to understand…

    Sweet Trailer…Season Two of ‘Ted Lasso’

    One of the most surprising things to come out of 2020 was the ever-charming Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso. And who says you can’t have a jolly good time in a pandemic. What the show has going for it – aside from the cast, the writing, the chemistry of the leads, the care-free charm of Jason Sudeikis, the gorgeous cinematography, and Dani Rojas, Rojas, Rojas – is simple: it is delightful up, down, and sideways. As such, it should surprise no one that a new season is on the way, so all you Lassoites (yes, I made that up just now) don’t have long to wait to get back to…

    Sweet Trailer…’Take Out Girl’

    We’re always on the look out for something different. If, like us, you’re a little burned out on super heroes, sequels and zombie films, then look no further. This impressive looking film is inspired by real events, and it feels pretty real in the trailer. Actress/Co-Writer Hedy Wong and Indigenous Director/Co-Writer Hisonni Johnson choose to amplify their AAPI/Indigenous voices by focusing on commonalities in their upbringing. They came together on this project to show how their shared familial bonds, poverty, and the lack of upward economic mobility, led to crime in their minority communities. Take Out Girl tells the story of Tera (played by Wong), a 20-year-old Asian-American woman who parlays her family restaurant delivery expertise into a…

    G-S-T Review…’Minari’

    It took me a while to begin writing Minari’s review. As entrapped as I was in its fine and safe depiction of a social setting, at first I wasn’t able to understand the force of its simplicity, the strength in its silent but provoking statement. Sometimes praising comes in strange ways. Forget about the awards and the social imperatives that continue to arise. This is a straightforward portrayal of a basic fact. However, the definite tone of the film is commendably welcoming. Even though we are dealing with drama, and typically, tragedy sets in in the genre, I remained with a smile from start to finish. And this is something…

    Interview…Chandler Poling and Thomas Mikusz from White Bear PR

    One of the best parts about running this site is the opportunity we’ve had to speak with people in the film business. Over the years, our staff has been fortunate enough to meet some of our heroes: actors, directors, and composers. Now I’ll tell you up from that GoSeeTalk wouldn’t have half our current interview content if it wasn’t for the help of PR firms handling the public relations on any particular campaign. It should be no surprise to you readers that we hold composers and film music in high regard. We do our best to shine the brightest light on the talent. However, it all goes back to the…
