INTERVIEW WITH LUKE GOSS [ACTOR]

GHOSTBUSTERS (2016): Be afraid of this one.

Beware!  There be spoilers ahead!

The new GHOSTBUSTERS is not funny or imaginative.  You kind of need those two main ingredients for a good Ghostbusters film.  The jokes falter due to over reliance on improvisation casting suspicion that there wasn't much of a script to begin with.  The jumbled, poorly paced, nearly incoherent story is evidence of that.    Worst yet the characters have very little on screen chemistry and provide absolutely no laughs no matter how hard they try.  Being a Ghostbusters fan I wanted to love this movie but I couldn't.  To put it bluntly this film insults the fans of the old generation while dumbing down the new.

As the film plays before your eyes you can't help but imagine better ways to tell a story about the Ghostbusters.  It would be so easy to put out a third film in the franchise and still have the four protagonists be the new all female Ghostbusters.  We wanted a sequel.  What we got is remake that is suppose to reboot the franchise.  Oh, goody!  We get the same old story of four friends getting together to form a business about catching ghosts and at the end a big giant thing stomps through the streets of Manhattan.  I guess that is the only story that can be told about the Ghostbusters in movie form.  They have told this story three times now!  If you stay to the end you get a mention of Zuul during a post credits scene.  Oh, no!  Ghostbusters is a prequel!!!  What is the deal with Sony and their reboots?  It takes two movies to tell one story that has already been told in a previous film.  It took two new AMAZING SPIDER-MAN movies to equal the amount of narrative put to screen in the first Sam Raimi Spider-Man.  CLICK HERE TO READ THE REST.....

Well Go USA Entertainment: KILL YOUR FRIENDS [Blu-ray & DVD] #​KillYourFriends @wellgousa


Based on the best-selling novel by John Niven, KILL YOUR FRIENDS debuts June 7 on Blu-ray™ and DVD from Well Go USA Entertainment. Set in 1990s London at the height of the Britpop music scene, KILL YOUR FRIENDS stars Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy, Mad Max: Fury Road) as a 27-year-old misanthropic A&R executive burning his way through London’s music industry. Fueled by greed and drugs, he’s searching the globe for the next megahit as he freely indulges in an unending orgy of self-gratification. But as the hits dry up and the industry begins to change, the only way he’s going to salvage his sagging career is by taking the concept of “cutthroat” to murderous new levels. Bonus materials include interviews with Nicholas Hoult, James Corden, writer John Niven and more.

As the twentieth century breathes its very last, with Britpop at its zenith, twenty-seven-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox (Hoult) is slashing and burning his way through London’s music industry. Blithely crisscrossing the globe in search of the next megahit—fueled by greed and inhuman quantities of drugs and alcohol—Stelfox freely indulges in an unending orgy of self-gratification. But the industry is changing fast, the hits are drying up, and the only way he’s going to salvage his sagging career is by taking the idea of “cutthroat” to murderous new levels.

Good-bye to a Friend, Terry Plumeri!


Multi-Platinum and Gold Record recording artist, Terry Plumeri, has recently completed his first in a series of four concert DVDs as composer/conductor of the Moscow Philharmonic. Johnterryl Plumeri and The Moscow Philharmonic Live at Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow will be available in the Fall of 2012. His 2009 release of Romance For Clarinet, Strings and Harp - The Chamber Music of Johnterryl Plumeri – Volume I, has garnered, “Hauntingly captivating…A high level of poise, polish and proportion…A sound world of poetic poignancy that casts an enthralling spell!” from Fanfare Magazine

Terry’s 2007 recording of the 4th, 5th and 6th Symphonies of Tchaikovsky as conductor of the Moscow Philharmonic has received such words of praise as “Exquisite sound…Haunting sense of tragedy… Vivid virtuosity…Exquisite balance…Ingenuous grace. Plumeri's Tchaikovsky is fashioned in the grand style of the Russian school. It permits him and his Moscow Philharmonic any number of shining moments." from Audiophile Audition. In regard to Terry's recordings with the Moscow Philharmonic of his original compositions, Fanfare Magazine has said, "These well-prepared composer-conducted performances and recordings are both technically and esthetically stunning. The emotional curve of Plumeri's music has a dramatic inevitability that carries the listener along without questioning and leaves him fully gratified, very much like the best of Tchaikovsky's efforts." The Washington Post has said of these recordings, "Plumeri conducts the Moscow Philharmonic in a performance sensitive to the music's smallest nuances."

Terry's innovative style of bowing jazz solos on the acoustic bass has garnered comments like "Stunning…a very high level of music" from the Washington Post. "Terry Plumeri's bowed bass work is endlessly compelling" from allaboutjazz.com. "Extraordinary bowing facility" from Jazz Improv Magazine. "Extraordinary bowing skill" from Jazzreview.com. In speaking about his latest jazz release Blue In Green, Audiophile Audition has said, “Blue In Green may well be a disc unique in the history of jazz. The sheer virtuosity of Plumeri’s arco bass often astounds.” In speaking of Terry’s recording with pianist Herbie Hancock, allaboutjazz has said, “The landmark release, He Who Lives In Many Places, is nothing short of Magnificent!”

Terry Plumeri began music at the age of 10 and went on to attend The Manhattan School of Music in New York City on scholarship. It was here that Terry studied with Robert Brennand, principal bass of the New York Philharmonic. Later, during his period as a bassist with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington D.C., he studied composition and conducting with the Hungarian conductor/composer Antal Dorati, himself a student of the legendary Bela Bartok.

During the past 15 years he has written the music to 57 feature films, which includes the score to the award winning crime story One False Move, which has recently been added to "The New York Times List of the 1000 Best Films Ever Made". His score for One False Move was nominated for, Best Score by the IFP Spirit Awards.

Terry's lectures on music have been heard at the Smithsonian Institute, Georgetown University, Maryland Art Institute and University of Southern California as well as in his private classes in the Los Angeles area on the Vocabulary and Psychology of the Music of Bernard Herrmann in the Alfred Hitchcock thriller, Psycho.

Terry has played with such jazz greats as Cannonball Adderley, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Quincy Jones, Arthur Prysock, Frank Sinatra, Joe Williams, Les McCann, Yusef Lateef, John Abercrombie and Woody Herman. Notable performances include Carniegie Hall/New York City, Albert Hall/London, Herodicus Atticus Theater/Athens, Tchaikovsky Hall/Moscow, as well as the Newport, Monterey and Montreux jazz festivals.

Such a talent... gone to soon!

Walker Stalker Returns to Chicago This May [2016]



Chicago, IL – Walker Stalker , a zombie and horror themed fan fest, will be held at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Chicago, Illinois on May 28th & 29th, 2016. Fan access to celebrity guests will be the primary focus of this event.

Walker Stalker returns for the third year to Chicago. In March of 2014, Walker Stalker made its debut in Chicago, where it assembled more “The Walking Dead” cast members than any convention ever before, along with other actors from zombie and horror films.

Confirmed guests for the event include (with more to be announced):
Chandler Riggs∙ Michael Cudlitz∙ Josh McDermitt∙ Christian Serratos∙ Katelyn Nacon
Emily Kinney∙ Chad Coleman∙ Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.∙ Giancarlo Esposito∙ Scott Thompson
Aaron Abrams∙ Katharine Isabelle∙ Jay Bonansinga

About Walker Stalker
After a last minute decision to take a trip to Senoia, GA, James Frazier and Eric Nordhoff were given the opportunity to venture on the set of The Walking Dead and meet the actors of the hit television series. The duo became enamored with the show and its subject matter and created a podcast to discuss all things Walking Dead. The topic eventually arose of a convention focused around recreating the very same experience that the cast and crew of the show endure every single day. And thus the concept of Walker Stalker Con was born.

The full event schedule can be found at http://walkerstalkercon.com/chicago/. Keep up with the happenings by finding us on social media: Twitter: @WalkrStalkrCon / Facebook: Walker Stalker Convention / Official Hashtag: #WSChicago

The correct order to watch the STAR WARS movies!

For some strange reason there seems to be profound confusion as to exactly what order you should watch all the STAR WARS movies.  Back in the old days this was not a problem.  It was simple.  You watched STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE followed by its sequel THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK which naturally makes you want to see how this whole space opera ended in RETURN OF THE JEDI.  But then came the extremely unnecessary prequels and ruined a whole generation of Star Wars fans who just do not know any better.  The scary thing is that several generations are going to still be ruined as long as the nerdos out there insist that the prequels are canon.  Potential fans are turned away from the franchise because they started watching the odd and clunky prequels first.  I am here to stop that if possible.  I will show you the way and hopefully explain why you should watch the movies in this particular order.  Get ready for a long, rambling, incoherent rant on this one, folks.

INTRADA RELEASES: CUJO and BUNNY LAKE IS MISSING!

BUNNY LAKE IS MISSING [1965]
Composed and Conducted by PAUL GLASS

For the 1965 Otto Preminger film Bunny Lake is Missing, composer Paul Glass not only created a memorable and highly original symphonic score. Glass worked with general serialism and even strict 12-tone techniques for his more atonal sections, moving effortlessly between intense sequences and those with firm tonality. This is showcased best during the film's climactic sequence, the score’s dramatic highlight, where Glass melds both aggressive, dissonant ideas and genuine tonality into a singularly unique and powerful experience lasting nearly six minutes. In the intense, powerful segments of the score, Glass spares nary a single instrument in the virtuoso activity. Virtually every player is called upon to contribute to the violence, be it muted trumpet or fortissimo trombone, jabbing clarinet or stratospheric piccolo, pounding snare drum or demented xylophone.

CUJO [1983]
Composed and Conducted by CHARLES BERNSTEIN

Charles Bernstein's score to the 1983 film Cujo takes a lyrical approach, drawing on the intimacy of piano and winds or using a lush orchestra to create a sympathetic portrait of the Trenton family and their seaside town. But for all of the bucolic warmth that Bernstein’s melodies conjure, something is amiss. Bernstein links the unhappy lives of the Trentons and Cujo’s far less well-off owners, the Cambers. Percussion often echoes without resolve, adding to the melancholy that hangs over Cujo well before its terror begins.

Intrada: UNIDENTIFIED FLYING ODDBALL Composed and Conducted by RON GOODWIN


Composer Ron Goodwin had previously scored five films for Disney and producer Hugh Attwooll: two for television (Diamonds on Wheels and Born to Run) and three for theaters (One of Our Dinosaurs Is Missing, The Littlest Horse Thieves—a.k.a. Escape From the Dark—and Candleshoe). Unidentified Flying Oddball marked his last feature for Disney, and was a fairly light affair, being a family comedy loosely inspired by Mark Twain’s 1889 novel A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.

Goodwin delivered an energetic score that mostly plays the action straight. The greater part of the score is a showcase for the composer’s vivid themes, injecting space-age pluck and dynamism into the film’s cheerfully anachronistic vision of early medieval Cornwall. Most of the score’s themes relate directly to the eponymous oddball spaceman, Tom Trimble. Foremost is a sparkling misterioso motif that opens the film in flute and bells over hushed tremolo strings.  As the film moves into more adventurous territory, Goodwin beefs up the orchestration and reworks the motif into a propulsive action setting. Finally, the line is absorbed into a heraldic theme that confirms Tom as the tale’s triumphant hero.

This premiere release of Ron Goodwin’s bright and action-filled score for Disney’s Unidentified Flying Oddball was made possible by the discovery of the original stereo session mixes, surviving on ¼˝ two-track tape. The rolls of tape were in very good condition and included everything that Goodwin recorded for the film, allowing Intrada to present his entire score as intended, including a handful of cues recorded but ultimately not used. The recording features a crisp stereo image, with the profuse action sequences for brass in the latter part of the score being especially vibrant.


Happy-go-lucky NASA scientist Tom Trimble (Dennis Dugan) is tasked with creating an intelligent android to pilot a faster-than-light spacecraft.  At the last minute, the android gets cold feet, and Trimble boards the craft and is inadvertently launched into orbit. The pair hurtle through time and wind up in England in the year 508, where Tom’s spacesuit causes him to be mistaken for a monster by the lovely maid Alisande (Sheila White). He is swiftly taken prisoner by the deceitful Sir Mordred (Jim Dale) and brought to Camelot. Tom regales King Arthur (Kenneth More) with a befuddling crash course in world history, but is nonetheless sentenced to burn at the stake...

Intrada: THE SETTING SUN Composed and Conducted by MAURICE JARRE


Composer Maurice Jarre was no stranger to the Far East by the time he scored The Setting Sun in 1992. He had traveled musically back in time to feudal Japan for the ten-hour miniseries of James Clavell’s bestseller Shogun in 1980. A few years later, he underscored the warring factions of the nineteenth-century Hong Kong opium trade in a feature film adaptation of Clavell’s Tai-Pan (1986).

Maurice Jarre scored The Setting Sun as an epic musical tapestry depicting events leading into WWII and Japan’s pending invasion of Manchuria. He wrote a large-scale, lavishly percussive and florid orchestral work, featuring both grand and tender themes. The orchestration included additional winds and brass, harps, pianos and other keyboards, a synthesizer and other electronics such as the EWI and EVI (Electronic Wind Instrument and Electronic Valve Instrument), played by Judd Miller and Nyle Steiner, the inventor of the instruments. The massive forces of the percussion ensemble included seven percussionists covering orchestral timpani, two large bass drums and a range of double-sided Japanese drums—two taiko, one odaiko, and a da-daiko— which often played in unison.

Jarre scored The Setting Sun with his customary musical continuity, allowing Intrada to construct the album by fashioning the shorter cues into lengthy, cohesive set-pieces that followed the overall picture narrative while playing as musically complete “movements” unto themselves, just as Jarre would have done. The score was recorded at Royce Hall on the University of Southern California campus and subsequently mixed by Shawn Murphy at Sony Pictures Studios. The digital masters survived in pristine condition.

First-time director Rou Tomono wrote the script for The Setting Sun based on his novel Rakuyô (the Japanese title of the film) about a Japanese soldier (Katô Masaya) who helps financially support his country’s military invasion of Manchuria and falls in love with the leader of a Chinese rebel force (Diane Lane). When they are drawn deep into the illegal opium trade to finance Japan’s imperialist mission, he collides with the ruthless leader of the Chinese mafia (Yuen Biao).
