Alan Menken – who penned the music (with the late Howard Ashman) to the original film – is on board as well. Review 33. A Cure For Wellness Gore Verbinski's last film was Disney's unfeasibly expensive western The Lone Ranger , but with A Cure For Wellness , he returned to the creepier, smaller-scale territory he explored in his Ring remake. The movie stars Dane DeHaan, who heads to a remote clinic in the Swiss Alps to find the whereabouts of his company's missing boss. That sounded not unlike Bram Stoker's Dracula to us, albeit with a modern, medical twist: everyone at the clinic has some kind of illness, and it's discovered that DeHaan's Mr Lockhart also has the same mysterious affliction. Jason Isaacs (hello) and the brilliantly-named Mia Goth also starred. Review 32. Murder On The Orient Express Kenneth Branagh’s last three films have been blockbusters of varying sizesJack Ryan: Shadow Recruit , Cinderella , Thor – but now he’s trying something a little smaller, and potentially a lot more playful.

I had an opening score, opening titles and credits. And I got in like a G-string and danced naked to '80s music with this leather jacket and crazy glasses," he explained. "That night, Thursday night, I sent it off. I said to my team at 3 Arts and WME, I was like, 'Dudes, this is crazy, literally the industry is going be like who the hell is this guy, or they're going to love it. Hopefully the Duffers can handle this.' I didn't sleep Thursday night and I got the call Friday morning saying, 'The Duffers want to Skype you on Sunday morning and they want to fly you to L.A. next week for the test deal.' I was like, 'Holy shit!' I Skyped the Duffers Sunday morning and we got a call Monday morning [saying] the test deal is off the plate, it's an offer. And I was standing with my mom and I was like, 'Are you kidding me?!' And we can expect Montgomery's new character to feel very familiar to horror fans.

“No one to that point had seen a White girl sing the blues like she sang it. And she was a tough Texas girl, she lived really tough, she drank tough, she did drugs, too many and too tough. But as a vocalist, her performance at Monterey was also one of the great concert performances of all time.” That’s famed music and film producer Lou Adler talking in 2007 about Janis Joplin and her performance 40 years before at the Monterey International Pop Festival . After those three days of music (June 16-June 18, 1967) in the Summer of Love , many of the acts catapulted to fame. The Who exploded stateside, The Jimi Hendrix Experience essentially launched their career from that stage, Ravi Shankar got introduced to Americans, and Otis Redding played to a mostly white audience for the first time. Laura Nyro and Canned Heat became famous overnight. And then there was Big Brother and the Holding Company, fronted by a 24 year-old Janis Joplin.

It has volume control, radio station seek, and four buttons that allows quick access to memorized stations. The source code shows how it is possible to control the Si4703 FM tuner chip to suit your needs. As for ICs, not everything is new, [Patrick] still used the good old LM386 amp to drive the speaker, which is almost 35 years old by now. As we can listen in the demo video, it can still output some seriously loud music sounds! Sadly, due to the FM receiver band constraints, you can't listen to Jupiter on this one.
