Film Score Friday 10/12/18
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 10/11/2018 - 9:00 PM
Quartet has announced three new upcoming score CDs -- Alexandre Desplat's score for Jacques Audiard's just-released dark comedy Western THE SISTERS BROTHERS (reportedly, rights issues with a U.S. label may make this CD difficult to obtain for U.S.-based collectors); a remastered and slightly expanded version of John Barry's romantic suspense score for the 1988 mystery MASQUERADE; and Victor Reyes' score for the recently released horror film DOWN A DARK HALL, starring AnnaSophia Robb and Uma Thurman.

Aisle Seat 10-9: The Other Side of Halloween
Posted By: Andy Dursin 10/8/2018 - 9:00 PM
Fox went into the summer of ‘77 thinking THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT (166 mins., R; Twilight Time) would be its top ticket, relegating a little movie named “Star Wars” to secondary status on the studio’s promotional radar. What they got instead was a picture that has attained a certain level of affection among “Golden Turkey” fans, though truth be told, the movie is neither as campy or fun as its reputation suggests.

Film Score Friday 10/5/18

The latest limited edition release from Intrada presents Richard Band's score for the 1993 kids-and-dinosaurs fantasy-comedy PREHYSTERIA!, starring Brett Cullen and Austin O'Brien (Last Action Hero).


The latest limited edition release from Varese Sarabande presents the LP tracks from the little-seen 1977 film 9/30/55 (ultimately released in theaters and on home video as September 30, 1955). The film from writer-director James Bridges (The Paper Chase, The China Syndrome, Mike's Murder) tells the story of a group of young people whose lives spin out of control when their hero, James Dean, dies in a car accident. The great Gordon Willis was the cinematographer, and the impressive cast includes Richard Thomas, Susan Tyrell, Lisa Blount, Tom Hulce, Dennis Christopher and Dennis Quaid. Composer Leonard Rosenman was a close friend of Dean's who scored his films Rebel without a Cause and East of Eden, and for 9/30/55 he adapted his music from those films for his score; the Varese release is limited to 1500 units.

Aisle Seat 10-2: So Bad They're Good
Posted By: Andy Dursin 10/1/2018 - 9:00 PM
Ridiculed as one of the all-time “Bad Movies,” EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC (117 mins., R) stormed theaters during the “Star Wars” summer of ’77 and made an unholy amount of money at the box-office in its opening weekend. However, once word got out that the expensive, hotly anticipated sequel was a dud of epic proportions (stories surfaced that audiences threw popcorn at the screen around the country), director John Boorman immediately took scissors out, cut seven minutes and had new prints shipped just days after its release. By then, though, it was much too late to try and save the ship: “The Heretic” set a new standard for major-studio botch jobs, a Golden Turkey that’s lost none of its ability to bewilder and horrify viewers (for all the wrong reasons) on their first viewing.
