    Cliff Martinez Got His Big Break In Film Scoring From 'Pee Wee's Playhouse'

    'Contagion' & 'Drive' Composer Talks Working With Soderbergh, Nicolas Winding Refn & Possibly Working On 'Only God Forgives'When we last sat down with composer Cliff Martinez, the Matthew McConaughey-starring "Lincoln Lawyer" was his last work, and the film, and score, were both warmly received. Mr. Martinez, familiar to fans of Steven Soderbergh for scoring several outstanding films in the director's filmography, including his standout score for "Solaris", was generous enough to sit down with us again - with two very well received films now in theaters (Soderbergh's "Contagion" and Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive"), we talked about his first ...

    'Take Shelter' Soundtrack Written By Ola Podrida's David Wingo Is Moody, Chilling & Unnerving

    Just recently when discussing composer Mychael Danna's excellent score for the humanist sports drama, "Moneyball," we lamented the fact that writing about soundtracks isn't always easy, as often they're not the sexiest topic in the world. However, maybe we'll be putting that theory to the test in th...

    Mychael Danna's Rousing 'Moneyball' Score Feat. This Will Destroy You & A Lenka Song Is A Big Winner

    Discussing soundtracks, especially scores can be, in some instances, sort of dull. It's easy to confabulate when a pop or rock figure like Trent Reznor ("The Social Network"), Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead ("There Will Be Blood") or Karen O & The Kids ("Where The Wild Things Are"), but aside from Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, Clint Mansell, Jon Brion and maybe John Murphy known for his great collaborations with Danny Boyle, there are very few "superstar" composers that mainstream audiences appreciate or generally want to read about. For example, Alberto Iglesias (known for his work with Pedro Almodovar) is probably, aside from Alexander Desplat, ...

    James Horner May Get Caught In The Web To Score 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

    Composer James Horner has seemingly done it all during his lengthy career. With seven Oscar nominations leading to one win (for "Titanic"), Horner has tuned up a wide variety of movies including "Wolfen," "48 Hrs.," "Glory," "Honey I Shrunk The Kids," "Braveheart," "Apollo 13," "Avatar" and even famously clashed with Terrence Malick over "The New World." However, aside from "The Rocketeer," he hasn't done much in the way of comic book movies. But all that may change very soon. In a recent interview with SCOREcast Online (via Film Music Reporter) music editor and frequent Horner collaborator Jim Henrikson revealed that the composer “is pretty ...

    New Pics From Jean-Jacques Annaud’s ‘Black Gold’ Starring Antonio Banderas, Tahar Rahim & More

    So, has Paul Thomas Anderson's "There Will Be Blood" found a double bill partner in Jean-Jacques Annaud’s forthcoming "Black Gold"? We'll know soon enough if the film will deliver the goods, but with a solid cast in front of the camera and a pretty interesting premise, the ingredients are there for ...

    Review: Gus Van Sant's 'Restless' A Sappy Misfire From A Director Capable Of So Much More

    Gus Van Sant has long been fascinated by young people – the way they interact with each other, the way they move, the way they emote, and, most importantly, the way they die (or at the very least face their mortality head-on – you could even lump his interesting, if aimless, "Psycho" remake in there). But he's never dared to make a movie as self-indulgent, pointless, mushy, and boring as "Restless," one that borrows heavily from movies much better than it ("Harold & Maude," "Love Story," "An American Werewolf in London," countless French New Wave flicks), and fails to leave even the slightest impression, beyond the thought of never, ever, eve...
