SHAME (2011) Film Review

Check it out... if you seek a film which handles socially-reputed ideals and concepts with maturity, honesty and poignancy

Skip it... if you consider yourself too highbrowed to be subjected to nudity nor vulgarities usually shunned by the masses within cinema, for Shame has no shame in regards to how it handles its heavy metaphors and themes

WOLF HALL Score Review

Check it out... if you seek a Gothic-flavored work reminiscent of last year's Penny Dreadful, strings and pianos once again controlling the direction of the composition in dark and harrowing forms 

Skip it... if you're not one to partake in solo extravaganzas, much of Wolf Hall dedicated to developing cadenza-styled passages that feel fragmented in contrast to the rest of the album

Check it out... if you have had doubts in the past as to whether or not you favour the style of Patrick Doyle, Cinderella being a score which will most likely cement your opinion in the approval ranges

Skip it... if even a hint of over-sentimentality is off-putting to your ears, Doyle often evoking excessive emotion even in the best of instances

CHAPPIE Score Review

Check it out... if you're an adamant fan of the retro Zimmer-age, and are elated by the prospect of another all synthetic score from the composer, despite any compositional detractors that remain due to the man's own methodology

Skip it... if you desire even a semblance or hint of intellectual composition, Zimmer discarding any notion of complexity, melodic variation, inspired instrumentation nor intelligent leitmotific conception from the moment the score initiates

Check it out... if you've embraced Henry Jackman's recent endeavors, namely Big Hero 6, or appreciate big, bold and brash undertakings that successfully incorporate the mannerisms of spy scores gone-by without sacrificing fun 

Skip it... if you require a level of substantial diversity from your action releases, Kingsman: The Secret Service an appreciable but marginally faulted effort in regards to originality and imagination
