Film Score Review – War For the Planet of the Apes

Tony Black reviews Michael Giacchino’s score for War for the Planet of the Apes

After the very recent high adventure of Michael Giacchino’s score for Spider-Man: Homecoming [read our review here], which saw him deliver a blast of thematic joy to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Giacchino switches gears and comes a little back down to earth for his score to War For the Planet of the Apes. Over recent years, Giacchino has been feted for a wealth of scores from major franchises but oddly enough his lyrical strings for 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes got a little lost in the shuffle and in listening to War, you realise for a start just how strong a score Giacchino delivered for Dawn and then how much of an evolution the same themes and leitmotifs present in War are. From an underrated, strong score for the previous film, his composition for War

Blu-Ray Review: Avoid Dull Trip to ‘Couples Retreat’

Chicago – It seems ironic that “Couples Retreat,” a film about a group of friends who think they’re going on a peaceful vacation but get hoodwinked into couples counseling, is itself a bait-and-switch, advertising a sexy comedy and delivering a dull trip. Avoid this awful excuse for a comedy.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.0/5.0

Like a couple headed for divorce, “Couples Retreat” starts promisingly, goes through a few bumpy patches, and ends in a final act so unfunny, poorly made, and ill-conceived that it nearly approaches “so bad you should see it” categorization. The final act of “Couples Retreat” with its endless character revelations and awful resolutions is unbearably written, directed, and performed.

Couples Retreat was released on Blu-ray and DVD on February 9th, 2010.

The set-up isn’t bad and the cast is clearly talented (or at least displayed talent in the past, although one would never know

How Xena’s India Storyline Changed My Life

Throughout its six seasons, Xena: Warrior Princess featured an enormous array of world mythologies, but my absolute favorite was the four-episode arc dealing with Gabrielle's spiritual quest in India, which is why that particular storyline earns the most esteemed award we here at TheTorchOnline can bestow: The India Storyline Five Torches (Out of Five) The first episode, called "Paradise Found," takes place before they even arrive in India, but introduces the element that most affected me: Gabrielle begins to feel peace by focusing on her breathing and practicing Yoga. Sure, it sounds hippie-dippie and new age-y, but anyone who's truly thrown themselves into the practice of Yoga understands its healing and soothing effects. Unfortunately, Gabrielle is guided along the beginning of her path by a guru named Aiden, who is actually a demon who feeds off the goodness of the people who come to his island paradise.

Campana hangs prod'n shingle

PARIS -- French producer Georges Campana, who left Vivendi Universal subsidiary Le Sabre in July, is setting up his own company, Breakout Films, and has put together an initial slate of English-language movies and miniseries. Breakout is one of the three main shareholders in production entity Screensaver International, alongside German producer Peter Paulich and Australian director-producer Mario Andreacchio. The three previously partnered on the movie Paradise Found, in which Kiefer Sutherland starred as painter Paul Gaugin. "The ambition is to make feature films and event miniseries, always with at least one major partner in Germany, Australia, the United Kingdom and so on," Campana said recently. Ignoring the movie adage about never working with animals or children, Campana's first project as producer involves working with baby animals. Five of them. The family movie Two Brothers Running, directed by Andreacchio, is scheduled to start shooting in South Africa at month's end. "It's a sort of road movie centered on two baby elephants who have to make a journey through the African bush," Campana said.

Starz Encore nets expand originals

The Starz Encore Group of themed cable channels is beefing up its slate of originals with three feature film acquisitions and a new weekly series devoted to the business of moviemaking. Starz! Cinema, the Starz Encore channel devoted to indie and offbeat films, has acquired the world premiere rights to the 2003 Peter O'Toole starrer The Final Curtain; the romantic comedy All I Want, starring Elijah Wood and Mandy Moore; and the Paul Gauguin biopic Paradise Found, starring Kiefer Sutherland. Final Curtain, produced by Christopher Young Films, stars O'Toole as the reigning king of TV game show hosts who slowly loses his grip to a younger rising star played by Aidan Gillen. It'll debut on Starz! Cinema in June, followed in July by Paradise Found and in August by All I Want.
