It's all part of my ultimate goal to release as many scores from the Summer of '89 as I possibly can. smile

Dunno if year 1996 was another goal, but you've racked up a good few from that one as well. :-)

I don't understand the need for this at all; the film was pretty lousy and the score sub-par Vangelis at best. There's surely more deserving scores that deserve the La La Land 2-disc treatment.


So right!

I had a glimmer of hope that this thread's header was refering to Toru Takemitsu's music for 1989's BLACK RAIN directed by Shohei Imamura.



Alas ... it's about Hans Zimmer's soundtrack for that waste of celluoid by Ridley Scott.

When's the music of Takemitsu coming onto La La Land?

Let's not forget Zimmer's score for Bird on a Wire, I know Summer of '90, but still a fantastic score that deserve's a soundtrack release!

This is good news - La La Land will be re-issuing Antoine Duhamel's soundtrack for THE MAD MONKEY (premiered Sept 5th 1989)! smile

How about Jerzy Skolimowski's 1989 THE TORRENTS OF SPRING, which could be the debut of Stanley Myers on La La Land! smile

Good news about Black Rain looking forward to another classic Zimmer score.

James Horner?

Thanks so much.

Thanks MV for responding. Yeah I had a feeling about Willow unfortunately. What about Red Heat & maybe Glory? As for Red Heat this is a gulity pleaure. Perhaps remastered w/extra music and maybe a couple of bonus tracks of the Opening/Closing credits w/o the choirs?

How would one describe this score? Sounds like a cross between Zimmer's Broken Arrow and Top Gun.

First Breath is right, this one IS worthy of its own thread. I posted this on the other thread, so please forbear with me, I just want to be part of the Black Rain discussion. Actually I can't remember being THIS excited about a single release in a long time.


Black Rain is THE ONE Zimmer score I never stopped playing ever since I've seen the movie first. I can't really explain why, but movie and score hold a very special place in my heart. Yes I know, Black Rain is mostly an un-original, style-over-substance cop thriller and all negative that's been said IS valid - but still I find myself returning to this one more often than to any other Scott movie. It has a great cast (Michael Douglas -with unusual hairstyle- at the height of his career, a wonderful flashy Andy Garcia and an always somber Ken Takakura. I sure wish Ken had done more western movies, since his japanese features are hard to get here), fantastic camera and lighting and an intelligent and spot-on Zimmer score.

Unlike most of his other action scores of the late 80s/early-to-mid 90s (Broken Arrow comes to mind), where Zimmer constructed orchestral/synth noise around an admittedly lovely main theme (or left out the lovely main theme at all, like in Peacemaker) in Black Rain the action scoring never loses its melody and I love the moments where the gentle "Nick and Masa theme" shines through all the mayhem.

There are countless scenes where the music is spot-on (e.g. when Douglas pulls the gun out of its holster or in the final scene), no wonder future directors felt like they needed something similar in their features. Sadly, none of them ever made me feel the way like the one that started it all. Don't get me wrong, I do have many of the later Zimmer scores, but most of them make me feel tired after some time. Not so Black Rain.

I don't know how many times I have listened to the MCA album (having bought it immediately after my first viewing of the film), but ever since I regretted that the album only features a small suite. The Gregg Allman song is quite good (and the prospect of having the film version which is played during the opening titles is great too), but the rest of the pop stuff is pretty much forgettable, especially the UB40 song totally feels out of place, given the dark nature of the film (and it sure doesn't fit an Osaka skyline at night).

For the very first time I think of buying two copies of a release. CAN'T WAIT!!

Only much MUCH more thematically and musically consistent than Broken Arrow, at least to my ears.

In my opinion, Randy Edelman's Ghostbusters II is one of the worst scores ever to come out of Hollywood... Just watch the movie paying attention to the score... We DON'T need a release for that!

An expanded "Adventures of Baron Munchasen" by Michael Kamen would be wonderful. So much great music not on the CD. The CD has many different takes compared to the movie. It is also a great movie.

Cheers, Darren

LOL, yeah, I'm sure that Takemitsu-score will be a winner for La La Land! :-D

Great clip on Black Rain. Hadn't seen that one before.

this one IS worthy of its own thread.

Personal opinion aside, couldn't the '80s version of Basil Wrathbone have at least waited until closer to the release date? There are a lot of people excited about the second Batman: The Animated Series release and none of them jumped the gun.
