RAR is a movie review and entertainment news podcast that is not afraid of spreading spoilers or rumors. We review new films as well as yesterdays soundtracks that still resonate with us. Tune in for what’s hot and what’s not on the silver screen.
Here at RAR we love a good music flick. Greetings from Tim Buckley tells the story of Jeff Buckley coming to New York to perform at a tribute concert for his father, Tim Buckley. Jeff, having never truly know his estranged father, struggles with the concert, his fathers legacy, and his own overflowing talent that had yet to be discovered. This biopic takes us from the height of Tim Buckley’s career to the start of Jeff’s and shows us what it means to carry on… or at least that is what they were going for. Written and Directed by Daniel Algrant this film gives us likeable and true to life characters, but a lack luster script that left us wanting more.
As you can see, we were concerned with this one:
For Rewound Soundtrack we had the ever chill DJ Margaret join us to talk about the nuances in the eerie and psychological soundtrack from Apocalypse Now (the Redux for those who want clarification.) Originally composed by Francis Ford Coppola’s father, Carmen Coppola, the Redux featured a remastered version of the original score as well as added synthesizers to some of the key tracks as well as introduced new songs for the deleted scenes that were added. Check out the introduction to the film with The Doors song The End:
Lastly, be sure to check out the Mystery Science Trailer at the end of the program for our commentary on the upcoming romantic drama As Cool As I Am.
