    Interview…Film Composer Steve Jablonsky On Collaboration and the New Sound of Transformers

    Fresh off the plane from London, film composer Steve Jablonsky is just starting to wind down from his last project. And why wouldn’t he? Working on Transformers: Age of Extinction (which came out just four weeks ago and will very soon be the first movie of 2014 to reach the $1 billion mark) over the last 6 months has been a whirlwind. Like most other Michael Bay pictures it was a mad dash to the finish line but that’s how it goes when you work on projects of this size and scope. Steve Jablonsky is synonymous with big, bombastic scores yet while the energy and emotion to his music runs high, Jablonsky is…

    Honestly, Does Anyone Really Live Happily Ever After??

    (Note: This was written last year but since this post originally focused briefly on elements from theTransformers series, I thought I’d revisit it because the latest installment still kind of helps prove my earlier point.) Here’s something I’ve wondered ever since I’ve started watching films. What happens to the characters after the credits?? It’s something most children ask their parents after they see (or hear) that all encompassing and cliche phrase at the end of a film…”And they lived Happily Ever After“. And since children are among the most inquisitive people on the planet, we should probably take a cue from them and not expect that just because the credits roll that…

    G-S-T Review…Transformers: Dark of the Moon

    2011 finds more and more movies following the trend that places some of the plot in the 60s and why not? It adds a level of depth and intrigue to the story right? In the case of X-Men First Class, yes. In Cars 2, not so much. Here, it’s an inspired move but the idea of using the Space Race and Moon landing as a way of covering up the arrival of the Autobots didn’t quite come around as impacting as it led on in those trailers. But it does make for a lead in to one helluva great action piece delivering the “Bayhem” and overly over-the-top style you’d expect…

    Off the Shelf…’Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’

    Cinema in 2011 has been so far so good as we’ve seen the most anticipated films knocking film fans right out of their socks (Green Lantern not withstanding). On Wednesday Michael Bay will unveil his final installment to the epic Transformers franchise. As I like to do my homework before a sequel hits theaters, this weekend I rewatched the first two Transformers films. Without fail, 2007’s Transformers delights with the added bonus of looking simply stunning on Blu Ray. It’s so good I really don’t need to waste any time gushing over it. But like any film that was “the first one” maybe it unfairly get put on too high…

    Sweet Trailers…’Super Bowl XLV Ads’

    For those of you who saw the Super Bowl you’ll know there were some pretty dope spots for this year’s . This morning I heard a radio announcer say that “in two weeks, a majority of those who watched it will forget the score, but the commercials will live on“. Good point, however I believe the same can be said for a few of most of those Movie Spots. But whether the movie in question will actually be any good (or live up to this hype) is another thing entirely. So whether you missed the Super Bowl and this is your first time them or if you just want to see…

    G-S-T Top 10 – Scenes I Could Watch Over and Over and Over…

    Taking huge inspiration (read: ripped off the idea) from Ruth at FlixChatter, I have decided to compile my own of the scenes I love to watch. These, as the headline suggests, are sequences in some of my favorite movies that I think I could watch on never-ending repeat. But before we begin, I would like to apologize up front for the varying quality of these videos (and in some cases the non-existent video of the sequence I’m referencing)…although it is YouTube after all right? So while this is about all the exposition a post like this requires, let’s get on with it, shall we?

    G-S-T Top 10 – Best Films of the Decade (Round 2)

    Hey All, this is the last minute contribution from Rob, your friendly neighborhood foreign correspondent chiming in with my thoughts from downtown Yokohama, Japan. In the end, the 2000’s may be most notable for two things, “comic book movies” and “re-movies“.  We’ve definitely run the gamut of superheroes and gone from the A tier hero’s, the D tier wannabe’s in comic book movies and with Re-movies being the remakes/reboots/rehashes of more things than should be legally done in the space of 10 years.  With that said, mine is going to be a rather predictable list, but stopping to think of what I liked over the last ten years (and there are some hard hard…

    G-S-T Review…Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

    In a country known to be fairly late on getting the new movies, Japan has scored a coup this time around with being the first country to show the new Transformers movie. Scheduled for June 20th, they even decided to move that up a day to the 19th. And you bet I was there to be one of the first in the world to see it. PREMISE: In the highly-anticipated sequel, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) again joins with the Autobots against their sworn enemies, the Decepticons.  Decepticon forces return to Earth on a mission to take Sam Witwicky prisoner, after the young hero learns the truth about the ancient origins…
