The Year’s Top Ten Tales Of Science Fiction 8 edited by Allan Kaster (audio review).

Confusingly, the stories on the discs of ‘The Year’s Top Ten Tales of Science Fiction # 8’ aren’t in the same order as set out on the cover. First up is ‘Today I Am Paul’ by Martin L. Shoemaker. Imagine a super-android who can adjust his features, height and eye colour and become a perfect […]

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter: music by Paul Haslinger   (CD review)

I’m at a slight disadvantage here, having only seen the first five ‘Resident Evil’ films, so treating ‘The Final Chapter’ purely as a piece of music. Mind you, considering the film isn’t being released until the 3rd of February, I’m probably ahead of everyone here by a couple months listening to the music. I should […]

Outlander Season 1, Volume 2 (Original Television Soundtrack) by Bear McCreary (CD review).

This is the second album of music released from the television series ‘Outlander’, based on the series of books by Diana Gabaldon. It’s an enjoyable hour or so of music and is an album I often find myself putting on while I’m working. It definitely evokes a sense of Scotland and Bear McCreary has made […]

Suicide Squad: Original Motion Picture Score by Steven Price (CD review).

First, I must confess when I started this review I had not yet seen the ‘Suicide Squad’ film, so it was without any prior knowledge that I pressed play. So I listened to this score as a piece of music, hoping that it could transcend its source material and work on its own the way […]

Chappie soundtrack by Hans Zimmer   (CD review)

If you think you already know exactly what a Hans Zimmer soundtrack sounds like and, in your head, you’ve got the famous sweeping orchestral sounds of the ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ or ‘Gladiator’ themes, prepare yourself for a surprise. The soundtrack to ‘Chappie’, a Science Fiction film about a law enforcement robot who gets kidnapped […]

The Music Of DC Comics Volume 2    (CD review)

For every super-hero, there is a corresponding theme that is meant to set to the heart-pounding and the blood racing. From John Williams stirring score for ‘Superman’ to the childishly simple yet brilliantly catchy opening to the 1966 ‘Batman’ TV show, all swirling around the minds of many super-hero fans, music has always played an […]

The Witch: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack music by Mark Korven (CD review).

From time to time, I review soundtracks without being able to see the original film for one reason or another. ‘The Witch’ is one of these. If you want to be really spooked then play this one late at night as I expect the finale of track 4, ‘Hare In The Woods’, will positively have […]
