Film Score Friday 10/21/16
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 10/20/2016 - 9:00 PM
The latest release from Intrada is a two-disc set featuring the first-ever commercial release of the score for 2003 horror comedy THE HAUNTED MANSION, which failed to match the success of Disney's other theme park-based film from that year, the first Pirates of the Caribbean. The film, starring Eddie Murphy and Terence Stamp, was scored by Mark Mancina, and the Intrada set features 83 minutes of score including unused cues and interpolations of "Grim Grinning Ghosts" from the original ride.

Next Monday, the Varese Sarabande CD Club plans to announce two new releases.

Aisle Seat 10-18: A Harvest of Discs!
Posted By: Andy Dursin 10/17/2016 - 9:00 PM
The magic’s gone in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE (**, 144 mins., 2016, PG-13; Fox), the ninth (is that even possible?) X-Men film that’s easily the weakest from director Bryan Singer, who seemingly remained too long at the franchise party this time around.

The latest CD from BYU features the first-ever release of Max Steiner's score for Raoul Walsh's 1948 World War II adventure FIGHTER SQUADRON, starring Edmond O'Brien and Robert Stack.

This week, along with their previously announced release of Mike Higham & Matthew Margeson's score for Tim Burton's brand new MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, La-La Land has released a two-disc set of music from the classic 60s animated TV series JONNY QUEST, scored by Hoyt Curtin, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, and a CD of Blake Neely's music for season four of TV's ARROW.

Intrada plans to release one new CD (a two-disc set) next week.

Aisle Seat 10-11: Of Exorcists, Slugs & Vamps
Posted By: Andy Dursin 10/10/2016 - 9:00 PM
Late in August of 1990, William Peter Blatty’s anticipated THE EXORCIST III (***, 110 mins., R) arrived in theaters. The Morgan Creek production, released by Fox, drew strong initial interest from audiences – and even a few positive reviews – before crashing quickly in the dumping grounds of late summer. Now a cult favorite, Blatty’s own adaptation of his novel “Legion” has been resurrected as a Scream Factory Collector’s Edition, complete with a reconstruction – from the best surviving sources – of Blatty’s initial cut of the film, completed before anxious studio executives mandated a punchier, effects-laden conclusion be shot.

The latest release from Intrada is a pet project of the label's mogul Doug Fake, a complete, two-disc version of Alex North's powerful score for director John Ford's final Western epic, 1964's CHEYENNE AUTUMN, starring Richard Widmark, Carroll Baker, Karl Malden, Edward G. Robinson, James Stewart, and those noted Native American actors, Sal Mineo and Ricardo Montalban. The Intrada set features the complete 79-minute score as well as more than 30 minutes of extras.

Quartet has announced their currently planned slate of releases for October, including a five-disc collection of Alberto Iglesias film music and a disc pairing Philippe Sarde's score for Jerry Schatzberg's REUNION with Sarde's unused score for the director's MISUNDERSTOOD, starring Gene Hackman and Henry Thomas.

Aisle Seat 10-4: THE THING Strikes Again
Posted By: Andy Dursin 10/3/2016 - 9:00 PM
One of the fondest memories I have, growing up during the Summer of 1982, was going to see “E.T.” eight times in theaters – and being utterly freaked out by the trailer for John Carpenter’s THE THING (****, 109 mins., R), Universal’s other big movie that summer, which was attached to prints of Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi classic. While Carpenter’s film would eventually become the classic in its own right that it deserved to be, “The Thing” was initially pegged as a major disappointment that threw the director’s career off-track to such an extent that it never entirely recovered.
