Interview…Le Matos on Outrun, RKSS, and Mondo/Death Waltz Vinyl Releases

Last month, we had the great pleasure to speak with a team of composers we’ve admired for some time. Hailing from Montreal, Le Matos has found their way into the hearts of ‘80s fans around the globe with their energetic sound – one that is as catchy as it is perfect for the films to […]

Sweet Trailer…’Fisherman’s Friends’

Sometimes we all need to get away. In the latest from Samuel Goldwyn Films comes a delightful little comedy about enjoying the little things. And when are we not going to highlight anything with James Purefoy? Anyway, this is the kind of small film that we think will have a big impact, similar to hilarious […]

Sweet Trailer…Wes Anderson’s ‘The French Dispatch’

Can you believe that this year we’ll get to see Wes Anderson’s 10th film? Better yet, can you imagine a world without Wes Anderson? It’s tough to do even if some people *cough, Honest Trailers, cough* think his movies are all the same. True, he has his style, and that’s what makes him, for close […]

Sweet Trailer…Natalia Dyer in ‘Tuscaloosa’

From writer/director Philip Harder (from the novel by Glasgow Phillips) comes the powerful film Tuscaloosa. It’s a story about set against the civil rights movement in the ’70s.

Interview…Nathan Johnson on the Lush Orchestral Score to ‘Knives Out’

One of our favorite composers, and one we’ve been fortunate enough to speak with several times over the years, is Nathan Johnson. With each film score, he’s continually gained an audience with a signature and stylistic approach to his work. That’s partly because he and his cousin are a package deal. Nathan and long time […]

Interview…Giancarlo Vulcano on the Surrealism of USA’s ‘Briarpatch’

Composer Giancarlo Vulcano has years of experience in television writing music for long running series. The trick, so he tells us, is to have a system to getting his cues put together. As Michael Giacchino told us long ago, TV is a non-stop grind.  Writing music for film can be a thankless job. Moreover, what […]

G-S-T Review…Uncut Gems

We’ve all seen plenty of after school specials and PSAs telling us that crime doesn’t pay, and tons of films where playing to and with criminals doesn’t end well…even in Guy Ritchie flicks. But why not throw a log another log on that fire? A few years ago, The Safdie Brothers (Josh and Benny) cast Robert Pattinson […]

G-S-T Review…Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Few franchises have such enduring longevity and cultural awareness as Star Wars. For those either brought up on the affairs in a galaxy far, far away, or new to the series, the anticipation (and expectation) of a saga-capping generation-defining final chapter have rarely been higher. And it’s not like the creative team didn’t know that […]

Sweet Trailer…’Top Gun: Maverick’

It’s been a long time since Tom Cruise took to the skies in Top Gun. After 33 years, this film joins the list of all the other properties from the ’80s seeing a remake, soft reboot, or a continued story line. How will this fare? Even as die hard fans of Tony Scott’s classic we’re […]

Exclusive…BBC/Netflix’s ‘Bodyguard’ Theme Remixed by Paul Hartnoll from Orbital

In what should be news to no one, Netflix’s original content has been steadily increasing in both quantity and quality.
