Sundance Hit “CODA” Comes Home (Review)

Loosely based on a 2014 French Film called "La Famille BĂ©lier," the second feature film from director Sian Heder introduces us to a family in Gloucester, Massachusetts where a teenage girl named Ruby (Emilia Jones) is the only member of her family who isn't deaf. In classical music, a coda is the part of the composition that ends the piece or movement. Here, it stands as an acronym for "child of deaf adults" although it does double duty musically in the story as well. Ruby has grown up in her family's fishing company, working alongside her father and brother on the boat and helping her mother with the administrative side of things. She is not only well versed in the business, but also acts as a de facto interpreter for them in situations where they have to deal with others who don...

Apple TV+ Launches ‘Watch The Sound With Mark Ronson’ Today (Review)

First things first: it would be impossible for me to be impartial when it comes to all things Mark Ronson. I fell deeply in love with his early production work for Nikka Costa. I played tracks from his first solo album "Here Comes The Fuzz" on the air at 97X/WOXY-FM in my past life as an alt-radio programmer. I put on my headphones religiously to stream his weekly East Village Radio show "Authentic Shit" in the mid-aughts. I have spent far too much money on collecting vinyl of his albums and remixes. All of that to say, when I got the press release for his new Apple TV+ docuseries called "Watch The Sound With Mark Ronson," I couldn't wait to watch. I was fortunate to be able to watch the full series early and am happy to say it doesn't disappoint. Mark is undoubtedly a ver...

Apple TV+ Premieres “1971” Series on Friday (Review)

A phenomenal new docuseries entitled "1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything" is premiering on AppleTV+ this Friday, May 21. Using David Hepworth's book "Never A Dull Moment: 1971 The Year That Rock Exploded" as inspiration, an award-winning team of filmmakers has crafted a highly bingeable eight-part series that intertwines the music and politics of this volatile and highly creative moment in history. I've been able to preview the first five episodes of the series, which was executive produced by Asif Kapadia and James Gay-Rees ("Amy," "Senna") and really wanted to put this on people's radar because even as a music lover since childhood, this was absolutely packed with footage and stories I had never seen before. Each episode hovers between 45 and 50 minutes, but manages ...
