Cineploit Records launches two new releases“Omaggio al Maestro Ennio Morricone” (Cine 20) and “Omaggio a Joe D´Amato e Marcello Giombini” (Exploit 01) 7″ Ep to mark their 5 year anniversary.

Cinema Retro picked up on Cineploit’s talents very early in the day. I've been reviewing their releases now since those very first humble beginnings. When it comes to labels that are dedicated in keeping retro genre film music alive - Cineploit are arguably the very best. Never afraid to explore new avenues or indeed breathing new life into classic Giallo or Poliziotteschi film scores, the label has decided to celebrate their anniversary with the release of a tribute album ‘Omaggio al Maestro Ennio Morricone.’

Fear The Walking Dead season 2 episode 7 review: Shiva

The group is forced to separate in the latest episode of The Walking Dead prequel, Fear The Walking Dead...

This review contains spoilers.

2.7 Shiva

One of the things The Walking Dead does every season is scatter the survivors to the four winds for mid-season finales, then they bring them back together over the course of the next half of the season. Taking a page from Hershel's farm once again, Fear The Walking Dead ends the episode with the cast scattered around the Mexican countryside. On one side, there are zombies. On the other side, angry workers looking to get revenge for their dead relatives. In the middle, as always, Victor Strand and his allies, who find themselves on the outs after wreaking a little havoc in the supposed safe zone.

The cracks appeared almost immediately. After all, Celia worked pretty hard at extracting Nick, the most vulnerable one of the group,

Fear The Walking Dead season 2 episode 6 review: Sicut Cervus

Fear The Walking Dead revisits a plot familiar from its parent show in its latest episode, but handles it even better...

This review contains spoilers.

2.6 Sicut Cervus

One of the problems that Fear The Walking Dead is going to face is that it's several seasons behind the parent show. That gives the spinoff a little more breathing room to include some luxuries, like television and electricity/water, but it also means that it is going to have to work harder not to accidentally recycle plot lines form the original series. Or, in some cases, they can recycle the plot but do it better than in the original series.

The second season of The Walking Dead is the farm season. The gang spent a whole season just hanging out on Hershel's farm while looking for Sophia. Well, in case you've forgotten, Sophia was there on the farm with them,

The crew of the Abigail try a risky play this week, but they can't seem to stop screwing up...

This review contains spoilers

2.5: Captive

The boaters on board the Abigail are increasingly facing tough decisions. They're trying to hold onto old-world values, but they're increasingly running into post-apocalyptic problems. An injured man isn't just an injured man anymore; he's now a liability, a ticking zombie time-bomb. Two episodes ago, Strand disposed of the ticking time bomb that was Alex (whose name has changed from Charlie during her first appearance, apparently) by cutting her loose, quite literally. As it turns out, turning your back on those in need can either save you or end you, and turning your back on family is just not something to even be considered. When you have someone who you trust to watch your back, you stick with them like glue, even

Fear the Walking Dead recap: season two, episode five – Captive

Travis and Alicia find themselves locked up thanks to someone from their past, and Madison is hellbent on coming to their rescue

Madison and the Abigail’s crew on a daring raid of the Dread Pirate Connor. A zombie switcheroo involving a hood and some dirty work. And yet something was missing from this episode, like a Blt without mayonnaise: all the ingredients in place but missing that special sauce to hold it together and make the whole sandwich worthwhile.

Fear the Walking Dead is a show without a mission. Everyone’s trying to make it to a sanctuary in Mexico, but is their true hope really to escape into some corner of this new world, or to adapt within it? Most of the moral dilemmas they’ve faced about survival and sacrifice have come straight out of the original Walking Dead’s recipe, and Fear has yet to find

With more episodes in its second season, Fear The Walking Dead has the time to slow down and let plot developments breathe...

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 Blood In The Streets

With an expanded second season, Fear The Walking Dead seems to be able to let things breathe a little more than we got in the first season. The beginning felt kind of rapid fire, things happening one after the other after the other until we end up in a burning mansion on the California coast with a mysterious guy in a suit and his $10 million dollar boat. It made for interesting television, and it kept things moving reasonably well, even if they didn't linger enough on the things I wanted to see for reasons of time or budget.

However, the second season seems to be taking a different pace. It wasn't all that long ago that Alicia

Fear Twd Recap: You Don't Know Jack
Just when we were sure that we had Strand figured out, kaboom! Fear the Walking Dead torpedoed our misperceptions this week, revealing that we didn’t know diddly about the Abigail’s enigmatic captain. What’s more, “Blood in the Streets” introduced Alicia’s “radio crush,” Jack, in the flesh, unveiled a more cunning side to Nick’s sister (and wasn’t it about time?) and renewed our faith in Madison’s instincts. And that was just for starters. Read on, and we’ll go over all of the hour’s highlights!

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Episode 4 Recap: Boarding Party

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Episode 4 Recap: Boarding Party
Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you haven’t seen season two, episode four of “Fear the Walking Dead,” titled “Blood in the Streets.”

The fourth episode of season two of “Fear the Walking Dead” opens with the first real “what the hell is going on” moment of the season. Nick is seen struggling to shore with some debris (maybe the Abigail?) and upon making landfall sees a helicopter fly overhead and head out toward the water where there are many more ships, most of which seem to be manned and operational. Nick heads deeper inland and finds a startlingly large, and unshockingly empty, camp. It doesn’t take long for a walker to start tailing him but with the help of a tent, it is easily taken care of. The trusted “cover yourself in zombie guts” strategy Nick learned about in last week’s episode is utilized and once he’s sufficiently covered,

Ennio Morricone to Score Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

Ennio Morricone to Score Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'
Quentin Tarantino revealed that composer Ennio Morricone would provide the score for the director's upcoming Western The Hateful Eight during that film's Comic-Con panel in San Diego. With The Hateful Eight, Morricone is returning to the Spaghetti Western genre for the first time in four decades. The Italian composer previously provided the legendary scores for classic Westerns like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West and My Name is Nobody.

Second Language: A decade of pop music on TV

The third track on one of my favorite rock records of the last decade, Okkervil River’s The Stage Names, is called “A Hand to Take Hold of the Scene.” Without context, its lyric is a bit of a tough nut to crack. Will Sheff sings about events unfolding on a TV screen in the first verse, recaps a dream in the second, and seems to outline the narrator’s innermost wishes in the third. What’s not immediately apparent is that the first verse outlines scenes from two completely different TV shows – scenes that happened to be scored by Okkervil River songs. The first half of the verse refers to “It Ends With a Fall” (from Down the River of Golden Dreams) and its use on the reality series Breaking Bonaduce. (I don’t have that clip handy.) The second half, and probably the more illustrative of the two in any case,

Ennio Morricone is not feuding with Quentin Tarantino over 'Django' song -- Exclusive
Just two months ago famed composer Ennio Morricone presented Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino with a lifetime achievement award in Rome. But last week, American outlets picked up on a small story in the Italian press where Morricone had allegedly told a group of students at Rome’s Luiss University that he did not care to work with Tarantino again, and that he was unhappy with how he used his song “Ancora Qui” in Django Unchained.

Known for his Spaghetti Western scores for Sergio Leone, and his work on films such as Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven and The Good,

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

Lawless; The Girl; The Imposter

Australian-born film-maker John Hillcoat is an often underrated auteur whose arresting filmography spans the broiling prison rebellion of Ghosts… of the Civil Dead, through the rugged western terrain of The Proposition to the bleak apocalypse of The Road, the last beautifully (but unpopularly) adapted from Cormac McCarthy's famously "unfilmable novel". Collaborating frequently with writer and composer Nick Cave, Hillcoat returns obsessively to themes of familial loyalty and modern mythology, with a quasi-biblical sense of archetypal justice and retribution often firing the infernal engine of his dramas.

Fittingly, family, mythology and vengeful justice are all at the heart of Lawless (2012, Momentum, 18), screenwriter Cave's adaptation of Matt Bondurant's visceral historical novel The Wettest County in the World. Handsomely set in prohibition-era Virginia (Benoît Delhomme's location cinematography conjures a perfect blend of pastoral lyricism and brutal violence), the film follows the changing fortunes of the Bondurant brothers,

'X Factor': Caitlin Koch, rugby coach, makes us all 'Stop (In the Name of Love)'

"The X Factor" welcomed Caitlin Koch to the stage Thursday night (Sept. 22). She is a willowy blonde rugby player/coach who knocked a out a slow-jam version of "Stop (In the Name of Love)." It was awesome.

Simon says, "When you were singing, you were almost losing control at the end, you took it down somewhere else. You did something with the song I've never heard before and that's why I like you."

And Paula praises her "great individual, authentic voice." Absolutely. SHe's so pretty, too. She could do very well in this competition. What did you think, "X Factor" viewers?

'X Factor': Xander Alexander caps off a terrible episode

How did you like the premiere of "The X Factor" Wednesday night? We aren't really sure the show actually has the x factor it is looking for - what did you think?

We did love, love, love Chris Rene, though.

Bienvenido a Miami

Ashley Sansone is our first audition. She's a little crazypants, so I'm not optimistic about her vocal stylings. I do fully expect her to bust, "No time! There's never anytime! I don't have time to study! ... I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I'm so [sob] scared!" Seriously, lay off the speed, girlfriend. Predictably, her singer is awful. Moving on.

She leads into a whole montage of crazypants Miami folk. "Feisty" is not the word I would use, L.A. Reid.

Randomly, Gloria Estefan is there to work the crowd. Maybe she can come be Steve Jones' warm-up host in Los Angeles when they get to the live shows.
