There’s never been a better time to be a fan of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. For those who have never had the chance to give it a spin, the Game of the Year edition is set to launch tomorrow, which includes both the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansions, along with all of the game’s free pieces of downloadable content.
These expansions are some of the best we’ve played in recent memory, but The Witcher 3 itself was one of the best game’s of last year. You can check out our original review, in which I gave the game 5 stars out of 5, which we only hand out to a handful of games each year.

Sean Wilson chats exclusively to multiple Emmy nominee Robert Duncan, veteran composer of shows as diverse as Castle, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Lie to Me, getting to the heart of the essential question: what makes a truly great soundtrack?
Robert, it’s a privilege to chat to you. To begin with, you were born into an extraordinary lineage of illustrious musicians – as I understand it, your great-grandfather composed music for silent movies, is that correct?
He did, yes, in London. He would take excerpts of classical pieces and pull out the pages of the applicable part and line them up on the music stands. He then had a little foot switch that connected to the lights on the musicians’ music stands. So he would step on the switch, the light would flicker and they would know to turn the page and start playing the chase music; then he would »

Are these the faces of the future of film scoring?
Earlier this month, 12 young composers each got the chance to stand on the 20th Century Fox scoring stage, conducting a 65-piece orchestra playing their own music. It was the culmination of their participation in the Ascap Film Scoring Workshop, a four-week immersion into the high-pressure, high-profile world of movie music.
As participant John Carey put it: “It was like getting to jump ahead 20 or 30 years in your career for a night, to a mock scenario where you would be scoring a major blockbuster film. Imagine being a quarterback in high school and suddenly getting to be in the NFL for a day; it’s just surreal.
“And after stepping off the podium my first thought was, ‘I have to figure out how to come back here and do this again.’”
Carey was one of four Americans chosen from among 300 applicants for this year’s program. »

By now you may have heard of a relatively new Netflix series called Stranger Things, and if you haven't, what on Earth have you been doing with your life? The show is a brain child of siblings Matt and Ross Duffer that serves as one giant homage to 80s entertainment. The series, which stars Winona Ryder, launched on the streaming service with little fanfare on July 15, but quickly grew in viewership as positive word of mouth spread from fans.
Not only was Stranger Things a great love letter to Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, and old-school geek culture, but it was a gripping story as well. To top it off, the direction was distinct and solid, the acting (especially from the surprising child talent) was on point, and the overall execution was as good, if not better, than we've come to expect from a Netflix show.
So how well has the series been doing for Netflix? »

Back in January, Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo made headlines when they teased in an interview that the movie, and its currently-untitled follow-up, will feature a whopping 67 characters. They later backed away from that finite figure, but it has long been believed that practically every character that has been established in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far will be featured in the movie. Today we essentially got confirmation that one specific character, Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes, will return.
The news comes buried within The Hollywood Reporter's piece on Sebastian Stan joining the adaptation of Shirley Jackson's We Have Always Lived In the Castle. At the end of this report, it is revealed that Sebastian Stan will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Avengers: Infinity War, with the actor slated to start shooting "early next year." Previous reports revealed that shooting on Infinity War will begin in November, »
While there are quite a few new shows centered around time travel this Fall, Frequency is worth a look. Not only does the CW series include some very interesting sci-fi elements, but it also has a hearty dose of mystery and drama. If that doesn't sell you, it's also created by Supernatural writer/producer Jeremy Carver. Who's Starring? Peyton List (remember Jane from Mad Men?), Riley Smith, Mekhi Phifer, Anthony Ruivivar, Lenny Jacobson, Devin Kelley, and Daniel Bonjour What It's About The reboot of the 2000 film of the same name is about a woman (List) who accidentally alters the present when an old ham radio helps her get in contact with her deceased father who is 20 years in the past. First Impression After watching the first episode, I'm hooked; the pilot has plenty of twists and turns that left me wanting the next episode.
