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.

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.
