James Horner Secretly Composed ‘The Magnificent Seven’ Score Before He Died Last month brought the tragic and surprising news that Oscar-winning composer James Horner had died in a plane crash at 61 years old. It was certainly a crushing blow to the world of cinema that had been so touched by his incredible scores for films such as Titanic, Braveheart, A Beautiful Mind, Aliens, Field of Dreams and more.

And if we included nonfiction, then the Up series wins.

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Poltergeist Director Gil Kenan! It takes a brave filmmaker to take on remaking POLTERGEIST. Thankfully, the fine gentleman who brought us MONSTER HOUSE and CITY OF EMBERS decided to have while still paying respect to the original. While the new film certainly has a different tone from Tobe Hooper directed, Steven Spielberg produced classic, in many ways this feels like a homage to it. And it also happens to feature a strong cast, with Sam... Read More...

Two of my favorite actors today happen to be Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt. And frankly, they give everything they do some serious credibility. So when you place them in the roles of the terrorized parents in POLTERGEIST, it already makes you care about the characters more. While the original film will always be one of my all-time favorites, I was surprised at how much fun I had with this new film and much... Read More...
