It is hard to believe I attended the world premiere of Copperhead last June (watch my coverage here) and now it is available on Blu-Ray & DVD! I received an advanced copy of the film last week and let me tell you the film transfers nicely to digital. Warner Home Video blu-ray discs offer resolution six times higher than standard definition DVDs, as well as extraordinary vibrant contrast and color and beautifully crisp sound.

Film #33 of 2014: Adult World (2013)
Amy, a naive college graduate who believes she’s destined to be a great poet, begrudgingly accepts a job at a sex shop while she pursues a mentorship with reclusive writer Rat Billings. The sex shop is aptly titled “Adult World” – a great pun for the film.
The Fifth Estate (2013)
A dramatic thriller based on real events that reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century’s most fiercely debated organization.
The Fifth Estate runs along the same vein as The Social Network, about a real life computer wiz, only this time instead of Zuckerberg we have Julian Assange who created WikiLeaks.
Why the bloody hell did they remake Carrie!
A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White, a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother, who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.
It’s “House of Cards,” with a werewolf/vampire hybrid instead of a charming but ruthless Southern senator. Which, in these hyper-partisan times, just might work. –LA Times

The Divorce is the sophomore comedic en-devour by New Brunswick filmmakers “Let Em Laugh Productions” (LELP).

The Copperhead original motion picture soundtrack, composed and conducted by Laurent Eyquem, is now available on iTunes.
Laurent Eyquem’s beautiful music, like the film, takes you to another place. The pain of the characters is reflected in the notes you hear coming from the melancholy score. -Breakaway Daily
“In conceiving the musical canvas for the film, Ron Maxwell and I decided to build the score around three core ideas – emotion, melody and subtlety.

I had the opportunity to catch Blake McGrath while he was in my neck of the woods on his way to the first stop of the So You Think You Can Dance Canada auditions.

Blake was nice enough to take some time away from his busy busy schedule to talk to me about his debut album Time to Move where he co-wrote almost every song and enjoyed the creative process of putting it together.
