Hans Zimmer been composing for major motion films since the 1980’s. If you do not know him, just think of films with scores that stand out.

His style and influence has impacted over 150 films, while earning Academy awards, Golden Globes, and Grammy’s among others. Though I absolutely loved the soundtrack to Dunkirk, I wanted to highlight my personal top 5 film scores by Hans Zimmer.

Eric’s Guide To Watching the ‘Planet of the Apes’ Series

Most of my stories of movie watching involve my dad, but for ‘Planet of the Apes’ I associate it with my mom. We happen to catch the original “Planet of the Apes” on TV. Afterwards, we decided to pick up the other films. Over the course of the following weekends we slowly bought the other movies. So with the new film currently in theaters I thought it may be fun to do another one of these ranking guide articles to celebrate. We have a lot of films to get through so let’s get started.

Top 5 Daniel Day-Lewis Performances We COULD Have Gotten

Now he has retired before, but was brought back. Who knows, maybe he will pull a Miyazaki. In the meantime while others make list of his best roles I thought it may be fun to look at the roles we could have gotten, but for one reason or another never happened.

New Han Solo Film in Need of New Directors

Directors Phil Lord & Christopher Miller have left their jobs as directors of the new Han Solo film. Disney has been kept us chock full of new Star Wars films. The idea was to make an anthology series to go along with the main saga. The next is a spin-off showing the origin of Han Solo. We’ve had photos and other news that seemed to indicate the production was moving along smoothly. Recently that all changed as it was announced halfway during the making of the film, they lost their directors. This isn’t terribly unusual as directors and studios part ways all the time. However, usually it happens earlier in pre-production before cameras start rolling. The fact this is happening essentially at the midpoint of production is very surprising.

How’s Universal’s Dark Universe Going?

Universal is off to a less than desirable start with their new Dark Universe. This was originally going to be an extra section in my main review for “The Mummy” much like how I did with my TBT review of “Howard the Duck.” However, there seemed to be enough stuff to talk about the Dark Universe so I decided to do a separate article dedicated to it. Plus I’m waiting a bit for those who plan on seeing it to view it. So SPOILERS ahead. The other nice thing about doing it this way is that it gives me more of a chance to see the fate of this film. Let’s just say that my review of calling it “meh…” is basically the closest it has to a glowing review… yeah.

Top 5 Best Step Families in Film

Families are a funny thing. They can drive us so crazy, but at the same time we never stop loving them. It’s the old saying that blood is thicker than water. But not always. I like many people in this day and age come from an extended family. Some are related by blood, some are not. Compared to a lot of other people (and Disney films) I had a great relationship with my step parents. For this Mother’s Day I thought it would be nice to honor the best step families on film. Let’s get started, but before we do there probably will be some SPOILERS in these entries.
