Happy Monday

I hope it’s good. I really do. It seems like it will good. It’ll be good, right? Everything will be great! Maybe. Maybe not?

Ladies and gentlemen, these are the thoughts that run through our minds laying in bed late Sunday night through Monday morning’s annoying alarm. Nobody likes Mondays, except for that one fictional character in ‘Office Space.’ Anyways, tonight is unlike other Mondays in the limited scope of a brand new limited series on TNT titled ‘I Am the Night.’

Starring Chris Pine, India Eisley and directed by ‘Wonder Woman’ director Patty Jenkins (the quotes can be removed from the ‘Wonder Woman’ movie title and still be applicable), this series focuses on a revelation regarding the Black Dahlia Murders in Los Angeles. The trailer appears to indicate a captivating story with the potential for twists and turns that will evolve into something great. However, only time will tell.

Well, limited tell will tell.

To prepare for the series premiere below is a special insight into the story with star India Eisley.

I am watching ‘I Am the Night’ tonight at 9 p.m. ET.

And I’m hoping it will be good. It’ll be good, right? Maybe. It seems like it’ll be good.

The Sound of Returning to Yellowstone

Movie and TV soundtracks are a musical art form reliant on imaginative pressure points and successful through emotional connection. Somewhere between the macro and the micro of the sound is the sweet spot of where we find ourselves between the intricately placed notes of the composer.

And in the case of the Paramount original series ‘Yellowstone,’ it’s composer Brian Tyler who has created a theme song as unique as the famed western escape.

For me, the ‘Yellowstone’ theme song draws me in by the past of Yellowstone yet I remain for the prospect of exploring a place like Prospector, Utah in the future.

From Smart to Dumb & Dumber to Smarter

Everyone thinks they know ‘Dumb & Dumber.’ It was an absurdly goofy movie from the ’90s. Case closed.

But that masterpiece was so much more.

Without diving into my veritable dissertation on the aforementioned comedic classic, it’s best to briefly let Jeff Daniels (“Harry Dunne”) give us fresh insight into the very real barriers he faced for wanting to act in…a comedic movie.

In some strange way, we have to be dumb–or perhaps a more polite combination of being humble with an eagerness to learn and try things–before we can genuinely realize if we are indeed smart in some cases.

Paul Rudd?

Apparently, yes. What’s more is that the affable Paul Rudd may have taken the right role for transitioning into a dramatic role.

While the ending shot subtly suggests that Mr. Rudd may not have completely escaped into this serious story, without seeing the full film, it’s tough to write his effort off as a dramatic role in name only. There are some comedic actors who can seamlessly transition into a variety of characters akin to Daniel Day-Lewis. Can everyone’s best friend extend his range all the way back to the 1940s?

Totes magotes We’ll have to wait and see if people will love it, man.
