Burning Fields #1

Writer: Michael MoreciTim Daniel

Artist: Colin Lorimer

Colorist: Joana Lafuente

Publisher: Boom! Studios

Price: $4

We’ve talked about the work of artist Colin Lorimer more than once in the past here at Destroy The Brain. He was the artist on sci-fi thriller Blackout as well as a contributing artist on Hellraiser: Bestiary and the consensus is that he’s one of the best comic book artists working in horror right now so when it was announced that he would be doing a brand new horror comic with Hoax Hunters creator Michael Moreci, I was keen to see the results, as their work together on the under-appreciated werewolf horror book Curse deserved more attention than it got (certainly, I’m to blame for ignoring it completely). Now that Burning Fields has rather quickly arrived in my hot little hands, let’s look at how »

Whiplash review – drumming up the tension nicely

18 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The struggles of a young drummer at an elite music school make for surprisingly gripping viewing, solos and all

Q: How do you know if there’s a drummer at your front door? A: He knocks three times then comes in late. Badoom tish! The perennial butt of countless muso-jokes, drummers have long been the source of morbidly outlandish legend, from tragicomic screen-gags about the Thamesmen’s timekeeper dying in a bizarre gardening accident, to tales of Spinal Tap’s Peter “James” Bond spontaneously combusting on the Isle of Lucy. Even in documentaries, drummers have been portrayed more as wildlife than musicians; think of Beware of Mr Baker, which opens with Cream tub-thumper Ginger Baker whacking his interviewer across the face with his cane, breaking his nose. No wonder Animal from the Muppets struck such a chord.

Three cheers, then, for one-time aspiring-drummer Damien Chazelle, writer/director of this whip-smart »

Reinhold Heil details his progression from Rock Music to Television and Film.

16 January 2015 4:04 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Reinhold Heil stood at the precipice of an evolving Berlin soundscape. Him and his fellow singers and musicians formed what is now referred to as the New German Wave (working with the likes of Nina Hagen and the band Spliff). Toted as one of the best keyboardist in Europe, Heil has taken his multi-instrumental talents to film, lending his hand to great titles like Run Lola Run, Cloud Atlas, and now the Syfy series Helix. Garret and I collaborated to dig deeper into the Golden Globe nominated composer's time behind the scenes.  

 

 

Garrett: What was it like being a successful writer and performer in a rock band in Germany during the 70’s and 80’s? How did it feel to be at the forefront of a rapidly changing musical landscape? 

 

I think I didn’t appreciate it enough at the time. Sometimes a city becomes the center for development in rock or pop music. »

Whiplash: the film that puts the drummer in the limelight, at last

11 January 2015 | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

After years of being the butt of musicians' jokes (Q: How do you know a drummer's at the door? A: The knocking speeds up/He doesn't know when to come in), at last the figure in the shadows to occupy front and centre of the cultural stage, courtesy of the indie film Whiplash, which opens on Friday. In the movie, student-sticksman Andrew Neiman (Matt Teller) competes for a coveted drumming job in his music college big band, only to be terrorised by abusive band-tutor Terence Fletcher (J K Simmons, in bullying sergeant-major mode). »

Taken 3 Review: Forest Whitaker Solves Crimes With Solid Deduction and Hot Bagels

9 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Once upon a time, almost a half century ago, in a ramshackle pastry shop outside a small village in rural France, a muscular baby boy was birthed from an even more muscular vagina. His parents, being big fans of cinema, christened him after their seventeenth favorite actor, and no one was surprised when the boy became a young man and the man became a movie director. His passion was for action films — usually ones with a number in the title — and his name was Olivier Megaton. Well, his name still is Oliver Megaton, and when someone with a name like Oliver Megaton makes an action movie it feels like the kind of perfectly inspired pairing that only comes along once in a millennium. Like if someone named Fanny Shytles grew up to make Adam Sandler comedies. How do you turn away from that divine promise? How do you know where to draw the line and say enough »

Box Office 2014: Action Pics Shoot Up With ‘Guardians’ & ‘Mockingjay’ While Other Genres Take A Hit

5 January 2015 3:04 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Most film genres at the 2014 domestic box office saw big declines, so before you stop writing that comedy or drama screenplay, know that this trend is largely a result of the annual B.O. of $10.35 billion taking a 5.2% hit as reported per Rentrak Theatrical. That said, there were some interesting spikes in a swampy year, particularly in the action realm as well as sci-fi, Ya novel adaptations and comic book titles.

Just because a genre drops at the B.O., though, it is not necessarily cause for alarm. One talent agency B.O. bean-counter says, “We typically look at one specific film as a representative of what’s working in the market place for a genre, such as 2013’s The Conjuring (137.4M) or this year’s Annabelle ($84.3M) as elevated horror films.”

While some have observed that there was a problem with sword-and-sandal films at the B.O. this year »
