Shock Waves [1977]: proved to be a film of several firsts. It was the first of the "Nazi zombie" films which has entered and stayed in the pop-culture mainstream, firmly establishing itself as a fan favorite since its premiere. It opened up the territory for other Nazi zombie pictures , including Zombie Lake (1981), The Treasure of the Living Dead (1982, also known as Oasis of the Zombies), Hard Rock Zombies (1985), Horrors of War (2006, aka Zombies of War), Outpost (2008) and Dead Snow (2009), not to forget the highly-popular manga and its spin-off anime, Hellsing (1997-2009).

First feature for director Ken Wiederhorn, as well as composer Richard Einhorn. Wiederhorn's thesis film at Columbia University, Manhattan Melody (1973), had previously won the Student Academy Award for Best Dramatic Film in its inaugural year. Shot on a shoestring budget, with the gracious participation of two film heavyweights in Peter Cushing and John Carradine, It proved that one didn't over-the-top effects or technical perfection to create a movie of chilling psychological horror.  
The Toy Soldiers [2014]: Written/Directed by Erik Peter Carlson   Starring Constance Brenneman, Chandler Rylko, Najarra Townsend, Jeanette May, Nick Frangione, Samuel Nolan, Thatcher Robinson, Megan Hensley, Andre Myers, Izzy Pollak, Kevin Pinassi and Amelia Haberman.

On one evening in a decade of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the innocence of youth and family unravels. Five parallel coming-of-age stories dramatize the stages of grief. A youthful mother in a custody battle over her children, finds tranquility with the bottle. The abuse of her ex-husband still haunts the children; a nineteen year old drug addict, and his younger brother, a bullied closet homosexual.There's the story of the dog; a teen who offers sexual favors to gain acceptance, the challenged classmate who would do anything for her love, and the redhead beauty, haunted by a secret, tragic past. These lives and others will change forever on this final evening before their hangout, The Toy Soldiers Roller Rink, closes its doors for the final time.

Just Announced! For more information on these two releases, please visit "HOWLIN' WOLF RECORDS".  One is a classic horror film "SHOCK WAVES" released in 1977 and the other is "THE TOY SOLDIERS" a current film.

Varese Sarabande: CHUCK (TV) [2015] - Tim Jones

Varese Sarabande | http://www.varesesarabande.com
 Varèse Sarabande Records will release CHUCK – Original Television Soundtrack digitally and on CD April 7, 2015.  The album features the show’s original score by Tim Jones (Human Target, Cult), with three performances by Jeffster, featuring Vik Sahay: “Take on Me”, “Fortunate Son,” and “Fat Bottom Girls.”  The digital version of the soundtrack will contain additional score tracks and two bonus Jeffster songs, “Leaving on a Jet Plane” and the hilarious “Mr. Roboto.”

“CHUCK was really a hybrid of many different genres,” said Jones. “My instructions were to bind them with a score that would bring together all the disparate elements. Nearly every episode saw the introduction of a new sound or feel to match the action. It was a great deal of fun.”

Tim Jones is a composer for film and television. While best known for his work on Chuck, other network shows include Human Target and Cult. He recently finished work on the feature documentary, The Abolitionists for executive producer Gerald Molen. He majored in film scoring and graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Film projects include Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball, The Death and Life of Bobby Z, Wicked Little Things, Vampires: The Turning, and The Forsaken. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.

CHUCK was a beloved high-concept action comedy that followed Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) as the Buy More computer geek turned secret agent. When Chuck unwittingly downloads a database of government information and deadly fighting skills into his head, he becomes the CIA's most vital secret. This sets Chuck on a path to become a full-fledged spy, assisted by the stoic Colonel John Casey (Adam Baldwin), Chuck's best friend, Morgan Grimes (Joshua Gomez), and the CIA's top agent - and now Chuck's wife - Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski). With the help of this unlikely team and his unorthodox techniques, Chuck is ready to take Operation Bartowski freelance. Featuring an amazing ensemble cast and action unlike anything else on television, there is no mission too impossible for CHUCK.

One of the fan favorite storylines featured Buy More employees Jeff Barnes (Scott Krinsky) and Lester Patel (Vik Sahay) as the cover band Jeffster.  When talking about the whirlwind that formed Jeffster, lead vocalist Sahay (Lester) said “Well, initially, it came up as a wee subplot for me and Jeff, in us wanting to play at Ellie's wedding. Once we had done a song or two, we performed at Comic-Con. I feel like that really ‘made’ it for us. Something happened there that is very hard to describe. Beauty and mania!” 

Now you can relive the Jeffster-mania, along with the your favorite moments from the show, with the CHUCK – Original Television Soundtrack, available digitally and on CD April 7, 2015.
It's about damn time... I watched this show! Many of us loved this show, some even hated the ending of it... it doesn't mean we didn't care. We did and now a few years after it ends we get the special treat of CHUCK vs. THE SCORE from Varese Sarabande. I didn't even mention JEFFSTER, what could be better...

MovieScore Media: Releases TWO new scores by Composer Christian Henson...

MovieScore Media | http://moviescoremedia.com/
MovieScore Media marks its latest collaborations with composer Christian Henson with the simultaneous release of two scores he wrote for the films of director Jon Wright: Robot Overlords and Grabbers. The soundtracks are released to coincide with the UK premiere of Robot Overlords, the third collaboration between director Wright and composer Henson. Starring Gillian Anderson and Ben Kingsley, Robot Overlords is set in a dystopian future where Earth has been conquered by powerful robots from a distant galaxy. The human survivors are confined to their houses and must wear electronic implants, risking incineration by robot sentries if they move outside their designated homes. A revolt ensues... 

The score is a hybrid of electronic and orchestral elements, written from the perspective of the child protagonists. The music dares to be bombastic and overpowering, or as the composer put it, he wrote what sounds true for those kids who grew up under the robot yoke. As Henson explains: “A lot of modern action scores today are descriptive by merely creating a musical impression of what is onscreen. We tried to populate the score with 'the truth' for all the players - this means when we are scary, we’re impossibly horrific. When we’re tragic, all is is lost. And when we’re heroic, we’re totally shameless. And like all kids,we had the ability to turn our emotions on a six-pence in the moment."

The second release next to Robot Overlords is Grabbers, a 2012 alien invasion film set on a small island off the coasts of Ireland. Starring Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley and Russell Tovey, the action/horror/comedy starts out like any good alien invasion film with blood-thirsty, sea-dwelling aliens arriving to Erin Island. Their path of terror is marked by whale carcasses and mysterious disappearances, but a full-on attack is thwarted by an unlikely escape route to our heroes. The aliens can’t tolerate alcohol, so as long as the residents of the island can fend off the invaders while they’re drunk enough, they may have a chance of survival.

The music from the previous Wright/Henson collaboration, Grabbers is released as part of MovieScore Media’s Discovery Collection. Just like Robot Overlords, the music for Grabbers follows the "bigger is better approach" with bombastic action cues and picturesque faux-Celtic music playing an ode to the composer’s own childhood memories. As he recalls: “This score is dedicated to my father and the Saturday afternoons we spent together watching all of those great movies of the 70’s, an homage to my entire childhood film heritage. This score leaped off the page on first reading. It struck me that an immersive, thematic line was needed to help the viewer escape into the movie like the good ol’ days was what was required. We needed a shameless celebration of movie music and the sheer enjoyment of cinema.” Both score were recorded at Air Studios, London.

Christian Henson is a UK based BAFTA and Ivor Novello nominated composer. Ever since setting up his first West London recording facility to work with best of London underground music scene (such as The Freestylers or LTJ Bukem), Christian wrote music to some 45 films, including his recent credits like the heart-wrenching French holocaust epic La Rafle (2010), the conclusion to the Poirot franchise (2009-13) and the hit video game Alien Isolation (2013), co-written with The Flight. His previous releases with MovieScore Media include Gabor Csupó's fantasy The Secret of Moonacre (2008), Simon Fellows’ modern day Lewis Carroll adaptation Malice in Wonderland (2009), the seabound thriller Triangle (2009), the Medieval horror Black Death (2010), the military thriller Storage 24 (2012) and the television version of Sinbad (2012).
Just Announced: I am a huge fan of composer Christian Henson work, looking forward to discovering something great... from the latest works on MovieScore Media!

When an artificial (Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian’s mercenaries and a cop (Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down VICE, and stopping the violence once and for all.
I liked it... kind of a Westworld meets Blade Runner meets some car chase film... it had it's moments.

Academy Award® winner Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables, The Devil Wears Prada) and Johnny Flynn (Something In The Air) star as strangers who connect under unlikely circumstances when Song One releases on Blu-ray and DVD March 24 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and The Film Arcade. The film has been available on Digital HD since January 23.


Legendary action star Jason Statham (The Expendables franchise, Transporter franchise) headlines the action-packed thriller Wild Card, showing its hand on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on March 31st from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film is currently available via On Demand. An extended version of the film, featuring 10 additional minutes not previously seen will also be available on Digital HD on the same date.  Featuring an all-star cast including Michael Angarano (Cinemax’s “The Knick”), Milo Ventimiglia (TV’s “Heroes”), Dominik García-Lorido (STARZ’s “Magic City”), Anne Heche (HBO’s “Hung”), Sofia Vergara (TV’s “Modern Family”), Max Casella (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) and Jason Alexander (TV’s “Seinfeld”), with Hope Davis (TV’s “Allegiance”) and Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games franchise), Wild Card is “Statham’s coolest action flick since The Transporter” (Comingsoon.net).

Nick Wild (Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a sadistic thug beats his friend, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes...and this time, it's all or nothing. 

From a screenplay by two-time Academy Award® winner* William Goldman, based on his novel, Heat, the Wild Card Blu-ray and DVD are packed with bonus features including an exploration of the film’s character ensemble and the ways in which Las Vegas defines them, an evolution of the Wild Card screenplay and a director’s commentary with Simon West (The Expendables 2).  

Okay I watched it, it was different... I like my STATHAM a killing machine and don't get me wrong he was... it was just the messy rest of the film. There is a great plot wanting to happen, it just never forms into anything of substance. Yes, look at all the stars in this film... for the minute or two they actually have any screen time.

Magnolia Home Entertainment: LIFE PARTNERS [dvd/blu-ray]

At 29, the most long-term relationship Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs) have ever been in is with each other, using their co-dependent friendship as an excuse not to venture out into the dating world alone. But when Paige meets nerdy Tim (Adam Brody) and starts to get serious for the first time, the nature of their friendship begins to shift. Fearing she’s being cast aside, Sasha tries to keep their relationship the same, but does growing up also mean growing apart? 

It's not what you think, well okay maybe it is... though it's more about a friendship over being in love or infatuated.
