Film Score Friday 9/12/14
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 9/11/2014 - 9:00 PM
Last week Intrada released two new CDs -- an expanded and remastered edition of James Horner's score for director Michael Apted's 1983 film version of Martin Cruz Smith's bestselling mystery GORKY PARK, starring Wililam Hurt, Joanna Pacula, Brian Dennehy and Lee Marvin, a score that can be described as "48 Hrs. Goes to Moscow" (previous CD releases from Varese and Kritzerland only featured the cues from the original Varese LP); and the first release of the LP tracks from Michel Legrand's score for the 1977 romantic drama THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT, director Charles Jarrott's film version of Sidney Sheldon's novel, starring Marie-France Pisier, John Beck and Susan Sarandon. The label also plans to release two new CDs next


The latest releaeses from La-La Land are the first-ever release of James Newton Howard's score for director John Schlesinger's 1996 thriller EYE FOR AN EYE (released in theaters nearly simultaneously with two other Howard-scored thrillers, The Juror and the Oscar-nominated Primal Fear), with Sally Field as a grieving mother plotting vengeance against the man (Kiefer Sutherland) who raped and murdered her teenage daughter; and the soundtrack to the new Civil War drama FIELD OF LOST SHOES, scored by Frederik Wiedmann (Return to House on Haunted Hill, Son of Batman).


Quartet has announced two new CDs featuring scores from Paramount films from the 1980s -- a two-disc soundtrack of 1983's Best Picture winner TERMS OF ENDEARMENT, featuring the complete, Oscar-nominated Michael Gore score for the first time, plus the original soundtrack LP cues which featured both music and dialogue; and a two-disc set featuring Carl Davis' score for dirrector Bruce Beresford's biblical drama KING DAVID, with a controversially cast Richard Gere as the Old Testament leader, co-starring Alice Krige and Edward Woodward as Saul the Equalizer (and production design by the master, Ken Adam). The label also recently released a CD pairing two previously unreleased '80s comedy scores by Alan Silvestri -- Michael Apted's CRITICAL CONDITION, starring Richard Pryor, and Carl Reiner's SUMMER RENTAL, starring John Candy -- as well as a disc pairing two previously released Ennio Morricone scores, UN GENIO, DUE COMPARI, UN POLLO and SONNY & JED.


Steven Price has followed up his Oscar-winning score for Gravity with FURY, an action-adventure drama starring Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal and Shia LaBoeuf as the crew of a U.S. army tank behind German lines in the last months of World War II. The film is from writer-director David Ayer, whose Sabotage was released less than six months ago, and Varese Sarabande will release Price's Fury score on October 14.

On October 28, Varese will release the soundtrack to the '80s-set action drama REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS, scored by Mark Kilian (Rendition, Traitor, The Ward).

Aisle Seat 17th Anniversary Edition

I wasn’t up watching THE EQUALIZER when it aired back in the ’80s, so I didn’t really know what to think of the series when I popped in VEI’s limited edition DVD box-set that’s newly available this week. After just a few minutes, though, I could tell why fans have long raved about the CBS series, which set the standard – alongside “Wiseguy” and “Miami Vice” – for television crime dramas in the mid-late ‘80s.

I have only just got back from vacation, so in all likelihood I have not had time to update this column since I last dealt with it eleven days ago, so to you people in the future I send my apologies, and hope that the future utopia of September 5, 2014 is as glorious as we all had imagined, and not as squalid and depressing as the one in my beloved Snowpiercer

Aisle Seat 9-2: Back to School Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 9/1/2014 - 9:00 PM
A few months ago I was watching TCM when they ran one of those archival, fluffy promotional “Making Of” featurettes inbetween movies. I was captivated by it because I had never heard of the film – an early ‘70s MGM “hayseed drama” named LOLLY-MADONNA XXX – despite the film offering an amazing array of talent, including Rod Steiger, Robert Ryan and a dynamite young cast comprised of Jeff Bridges, Scott Wilson, Gary Busey, Randy Quaid, Ed Lauter and Season Hubley. This rarely-screened picture – which has never been released on video in any format – has finally made its way back into circulation courtesy of the Warner Archives, restoring the scope dimensions of cinematographer Philip Lathrop and director Richard C. Sarafian.
