This week I got to speak with Emmy-nominated composer Cindy O’ Connor about her beginnings in the entertainment business and the processes of making music for film and television. Cindy’s musical and vocal excellence can be heard on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” Wreck-It Ralph, and Dolphin Tale. One of her upcoming projects includes the Adam Thomas Anderegg WWII film Instrument of War.

Adam Schiff and I sat down to talk about his career, from keyboard player in South Africa to composer in the collective known as Bleeding Fingers Music which was co-founded by thee Hans Zimmer. His latest work can be found on the Netflix film The Package, a cautionary tale about the one thing that men fear the most: losing their most prized possession.
Now, for me that means my stunning good looks, but for others it’s something a bit more … dangly.

The Package is currently available on Netflix. The teen comedy is directed by Jake Szymanski and stars Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers), Daniel Doheny, Sadie Calvano, and Luke Spencer Roberts.

I am a child of the ‘80s. Growing up in the back of a VHS rental shop with nearly every movie at my disposal, there’s no mystery as to why the action and horror genres were my favorites. There is a magic that came along with the ‘80s that cannot be replicated in today’s action films. The balance of overblown machismo, unlimited ammunition, and violence on tap worked only during that decade of decadence. Attempts to recreate it in recent years, while OK, just can’t match the brawn of Arnold, or the steely stare of Stallone in their prime.
While I could wax nostalgic for quite some time, the visual medium is far more effective at conveying my love for these films. Over the years, we’ve seen a number of indie and amateur filmmakers emerge in the digital realm to scratch our itch for the action flicks of old. On YouTube, where thankfully the time of the ‘Angry Reviewer’ has come to a close, what has taken their place is far superior in quality. As I mentioned in my Kim Justice interview, this new batch of genre fans is turning streaming sites into the true next gen landscape for documentaries.
I reached out to one such creator, Oliver Harper. Like myself, Oliver grew up during the heights of the action genre and saw it slowly fade from greatness. His YouTube channel is loaded with several great retrospectives, and he can cut together one hell of a trailer. Now, he is putting those skills to good use by creating a documentary that will no doubt please all of us who were raised on muscles, huge guns, and big explosions: ‘In Search of the Last Action Heroes.’
Oliver and his producer, Ti Singh, sat down with me to discuss how this project came about, and the tough road that any documentary filmmaker faces.

A few years ago I was on the set of Christopher Lawrence Chapman’s film Inoperable and met former WWE wrestler and actor Chris Hahn. The man who once wrestled under the name Johnny Paradise has seen a huge spike in his career in the entertainment industry, in part to collaborations with our mutual friend Jeff Miller (executive producer extraordinaire) and his appearance on ABC’s “The Proposal.”
Having seen the number of projects Chris was working on recently, I decided to reach out to the Ax Giant actor to talk about these upcoming films and the hard work he puts in to not only landing roles, but in maintaining his signature look.

Welcome true believers to the first episode of our new podcast focusing on the MARVEL cinematic universe, its characters, and its future as we head into Phase 4. Joining me is fellow FanBolt contributor Christine Cenon.

In this inaugural episode, we will be taking a look at the fallout from The Infinity War. Will the MARVEL universe be forever changed? How will the deaths of major characters shape the landscape for future, less known heroes? Is Captain Marvel up to the task to carry this juggernaut into the 2020s or will there be a little bit of brand confusion when another hero with the same name attempts to save DC films from harsh criticism?

The day of the angry reviewer has thankfully passed on YouTube. No longer do profanity-laden diatribes hold prominence when it comes to retro video gaming and classic films of the ‘80s and ‘90s. From the ashes of AVGN and Nostalgia Critic have come a group of creators who focus on the more detailed aspects of our favorite pastimes. Folks like DJ Slope, Guru Larry, Oliver Harper, and Kim Justice have taken up the mantle of suppliers of retro-focused information with documentary styled videos that are rife with facts, yet retaining that perfect degree of charisma that keeps us from clicking elsewhere.
This week I sat down with Kim Justice to speak about a bevy of topic: how to deal with the ups & downs of being at the whim of YouTube’s arbitrary rules and the evolution of acceptance and representation of trans people in media.

Tarik Lewis stopped by the Syxx Sense studio to talk about his career as a stand-up comedian, writer, and actor. In my recent interview series, we’ve been looking at the topics of representation in film, and social media’s influence on the entertainment we consume.

Earlier this year Meagan Navarro (Bloody Disgusting), Zach D Roberts (ComicBook.com), and I got to visit the set of 'Hell Fest.'

During this set visit, a lot of information was on hand that could be considered a spoiler: who dies, who survives, who the killer is, what weapons our villain uses, etc. If you’re like me, then spoilers take away all the fun from a horror flick. So, we’ve tailored this set visit to be quite spoiler-free.

From the highway on this cold winter day, a particular seasonal water park appears to be alive. Lights are ablaze. Bodies are moving to and fro. Fog is building between the pine trees and the various rides. A telescoping boom lift can be seen slowly maneuvering the twisting walkways with its precious cargo of high-powered lighting rigs. Yes, there is life in this park, but not sparked by thrills seekers. The commotion is result of an ongoing film production from CBS Films!

Gregory Plotkin, the director of ‘Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension’ and the man responsible for editing 2017’s seminal masterpiece ‘Get Out’ helms the theme-parked slasher, ‘Hell Fest.’ Set amongst the tall pine trees, Plotkin and his team have disguised a cheery waterpark into a believable Halloween-themed event, where not all the scares are manufactured by ghastly props or masked employees.

There is a bubble in Hollywood that is unlike anywhere else in the world. Where privilege are plentiful and consequences are few. Where the good times are endless, as long as they’re not on your dime. Where young people lose their innocence and are molded into creatures of indifference, operating on an almost primal survival mode if their life of luxury is threatened.
This is the story of The Grand Son, the moody and beautiful Robert Logevall film about a brother and sister who find their wealth and status threatened when their aging celebrity grandmother reaches the end of her usefulness in Hollywood. The feature stars Rhys Wakefield, Fabianne Therese, and the legendary Lesley Ann Warren.
This week I had the opportunity to talk to Rhys Wakefield, who you will recognize from The Purge and “True Detective.” Rhys portrays Tod, one of the siblings who resides with his grandmother in a palatial estate in the Hollywood hills. Check it out below, and you can catch The Grand Son on VOD August 14th and on DVD November 6th.
(Interview video)
Synopsis:
High in the Hollywood Hills, Tod and his sister, Lani live a charmed life in mansion of their grandmother, a former movie star now hosting a home shopping show with failing ratings.
