INTERVIEW: World War Z Composer MARCO BELTRAMI

To capture the Zombie-Essence, musically speaking, composer MARCO BELTRAMI went to extraordinary lengths to create music that complimented a Zombie apocalypse.  Listen to find out what instruments he used that weren’t really instruments at all. You’ll be amazed.  I’ll give you 3 hints: Teeth, bones & skulls.  It’s awesome.  Enjoy the interview.  If you want your movie stuff served without all the BS, follow Leo Quinones on Twitter @leoquinones.  Gerry Lane, a former United Nations Investigator & world saver does.



STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS MOVIE REVIEW

Director J.J. Abrams knows how to slap together a fun movie. “Star Trek Into Darkness” has most everything. Sometimes I enjoy simplicity.  The movie has a beginning, a middle & an end.  Less interpretation, more up on the screen.  I will say, in this installment, character development was scrapped over more action sequences.  But hey, I’m OK with that. It’s time for a summer popcorn movie & it’s not Oscar Season. The heartbeat of the movie is the complex friendship between The Human: Kirk & The Vulcan: Spock.  Chris Pine & Zachary Quinto provide the spark that ignites the entire movie.

The Crew of the Starship: Enterprise, headed by Captain James T. Kirk has been given their latest mission.  But it’s really less of a mission and more of a Black OP.  NO SPOILERS HERE. Trekkies will absolutely love subtle and notso subtle references to the original 1960’s TV series.  Maybe they should call him James T. KINK.  He just goes for it, every single time & I dig that.  I advise you to seek passage aboard the Enterprise & strap in for it’s 5-year mission.   I had a complete blast.  Just like Scotty, Bones & Ohura you can certainly follow me on Twitter @leoquinones.  Q-Out.

Movie Review: Battleship **NO SPOILERS**

Battleship is getting torpedoed by movie critics. It’s what they do.  The movie is far from perfect, and is a lot better than I thought.  I’m fully aware the dialogue in the movie had challenges.  But here’s one of my pet peeves: Rudeness in movie theaters.  When a lousy line is uttered, I just kinda roll my eyes & think to myself, “That was so cheesy.”  But again, this is me, thinking to myself.

I can’t stand when someone, who gets to see these movies for FREE has the tenacity to outwardly laugh at bad dialogue. It’s the most selfish thing you can do in a movie.  It serves 2 purposes: (1) You’re attempting to show everyone how smart you are & you know a bad line when you hear it. (2) It pulls anyone out of the film who’s enjoying it.

Regular movie going folks with enjoy Battleship. Based on the 1931 Hasbro game,  it has less to do with real strategic war at sea & more to do with aliens taking over Earth.  I will say the sound design was perfect.  On the other hand, it feels like whole scenes were lifted from other movies like, “Officer & A Gentlemen,” “Independence Day,” and of course, “Transformers.”

Battleship is a long journey from perfection, but I still had fun.  My favorite thing about the movie were the ‘Old Salts,’ World War II vets who actually served on the battleship USS Missouri was very cool.  Rated PG-13.  You can follow me on Twitter @leoquinones

 



REVIEW: Marvel’s The Avengers *NO SPOILERS*

Published by in Movie Review on May 4th, 2012 | Comments Off on REVIEW: Marvel’s The Avengers *NO SPOILERS*

Marvel’s The Avengers defies all logic.  Writer/Director JOSS WHEDON gets the credit with bringing his cinematic vision to life.  On top of that, six generations of Marvel Comic Book writers get their day in the sun, as they should.  Here’s the assignment.  Take Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Nick Fury, Black Widow & Hawkeye and put them all together in one film that makes actual sense.  In a covert world, this is called, “The Avengers Initiative.”  I’d say the mission was a complete & utter success.

The reason is layered.  Let’s tear right into it.  Good Storytelling. Formidable Foes.  Good Acting.  Eye-Popping Special Effects.  Just enough back story on each character.  Genuine Excitement. Smart Humor.  Perfect Tone.  If there’s anything wrong with The Avengers, let someone else bring it to the table.  I was just jacked up on adrenaline.  What’s happened here is a movie miracle.

There’s so much riding on a movie like this.  Not for the studio, but for the fans.  When a comic book movie comes out & falls short of hitting the mark, who always gets burned, the fans.   The Avengers gives Fanboys & Fangirls the right to pump their fists & revel in the fact that their beloved Marvel characters were well taken care of by Mr. Whedon.

Go see The Avengers in theaters. If you’re lucky enough to afford paying full freight, go see it in IMAX 3D. You will not be disappointed.  I can’t imagine anyone not liking this film.  This is what movie-going is all about.
