This week, Sarah, Bryan and Roxi discuss one of the most prolific film score composers of our time: Danny Elfman.
Those who’ve listened to the podcasts know that I am no stranger to theatre (<—the right way to spell it). So naturally, when I took my trip to New York last month, it would have been a crime against the humanities to not see a Broadway show. Of course, those who also know me personally know that next to film and theatre, I’m heavily influenced by comic books. And against the better judgement of my theatre friends, and anyone who saw the show, I decided that the first ever broadway show I would see would be none other than Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. And what did I think of this much talked-about (read: disparaged) musical?
I know what you’re thinking and I agree. Batman & Robin is one of the most terrible films to ever disgrace the silver screen, or any screen for that matter. The script is garbage, the acting is awful, and the production design was way over the top. However, a true Batman fan, comic book fan, or comic book movie fan can actually enjoy it and I will tell you how.
As the year winds down to a close, for most movie fans like me, this is the most thrilling time of the year. 2013 has been, at the very least, a very entertaining year with some critical and crowd-pleasing gems, some with controversy and some with a lack of fanfare/box-office bombs. Looking ahead on what’s to come, Here’s my list of twelve Fall/Winter 2013 films that I am most excited to see, starting with the month of October. The reason for the number twelve is because I tried to narrow down to ten, which I couldn’t, and then I tried to narrow the list down to fifteen and being the overachiever I am, I kept it short with twelve. I will include brief synopses and poster for each film, courtesy of imdb.com.
