Review: “Midnight Special” (PG-13)

(NEW YORK) -- The simple, modest-budget, indie sci-fi look and feel of Midnight Special is certainly part of its appeal,  but that’s hardly what defines writer-director Jeff Nichols’ first studio film. Michael Shannon plays Roy, the father of a young boy named Alton (Jaeden Lieberher) who has powers not of this world. The story begins with Roy and his childhood friend, Lucas (Joel Edgerton), kidnapping Alton from “The Ranch,” which resembles some sort of commune but turns out to be more of a cult, devoted to Alton, whom they believe is their savior. Mind you, they don’t blindly believe the…

Review: “Miles Ahead” (R)

(NEW YORK) -- Don Cheadle turns in a virtuoso performance not only as the star of Miles Ahead, but also as the director and co-writer of this non-linear, beautifully disjointed biopic of the late jazz great, composer and trumpeter Miles Davis. The story introduces us to a chain-smoking, raspy-throated Davis, who sits down for an interview with Rolling Stone journalist Dave Brill (Ewan McGregor). Davis chides Brill for what he perceives to be a weak approach, encouraging him to, perhaps, embellish a bit.  Davis takes over the interview, which serves as an entry point for Cheadle and friends to this…

"Batman v Superman" Composer Hans Zimmer Done with Superheroes

(NEW YORK) -- Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer is hanging up his cape: he's retiring from scoring superhero films following his work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Zimmer tells the BBC of the Zack Snyder film, "This one was very hard for me to do, to try to find new language." Zimmer had previously scored three Batman films for Christopher Nolan, as well as Snyder's Man of Steel, and Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. While there's evidently no superhero fatigue at the box office, it seems there is for the 58-year-old. "I did Batman Begins with Chris [Nolan] 12 years…
