Transformers: The Last Knight

Dan Goldwasser Graphic Design

Just like with Baywatch, I had the good fortune to work on the soundtrack for another current film title, this time for Steve Jablonsky’s score to Transformers: The Last Knight.  Once more, role was more of a coordination role between the studio, La-La Land Records, and the ad agency that was handling the artwork.  Some of the workflow issues we had with Baywatch were resolved this time around, but there was a creative change at the last minute which required some …

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Dan Goldwasser Movie Reviews

I honestly don’t even know where to begin with this one.  When I saw Transformers back in 2007, I felt that it was one of the most kick-ass fun stupid movies of the summer.  The visual effects were awesome, the sound design was loud and punchy, and the story and acting were “whatever”.  So now comes the inevitable sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.  Everyone who worked on the first one is back for the sequel, and this time everything …

Friday the 13th

Dan Goldwasser Movie Reviews

Ah yes, Platinum Dunes is back at it again!  Michael Bay’s production company has taken to remaking most of the classic horror films of the 1970s and 1980s, and no franchise is safe!  They started with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, moved on to The Amityville Horror and now take on Friday the 13th.  (Next up is A Nightmare on Elm Street – goodie!) Everyone knows the basic story from the original film.  It’s June 13th, 1980, and someone is terrorizing Camp Crystal …

I’ve never been a big fan of Transformers. That isn’t to say I wouldn’t enjoy the television show, toys, or original animated film; I just never got into it. So when I saw the new Michael Bay live-action version of Transformers, it was not from the standpoint of a long-time fan. The story is pretty straightforward. The Autobots (good guys) and Decepticons (bad guys) have been waging war against each other for a long time. The “All-Spark” apparently came to …

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Dan Goldwasser Movie Reviews

It’s official – Texas seems to be a breeding ground for some truly sick freaks. Some I’ve even met. But thankfully, even those jackholes aren’t as sick as the disturbing family seen in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Produced by Michael Bay (yes, that guy), this remake of the classic 1974 horror film is disturbing, thrilling, and (ultimately) fun to watch. Aside from Alien, it’s probably the only real Halloween movie coming out this October. I’ve got to admit, I couldn’t …
