CD Reviews: Cinderella Man and Kingdom of Heaven



Cinderella Man ****

THOMAS NEWMAN

Decca B0004561-02

25 tracks - 47:01

Hopefully, Oscars voters will not hold Cinderella Man at fault for opening in the wake of last year's triumph of the overrated Million Dollar Baby.

CD Review: The Ring/The Ring Two



The Ring/The Ring Two ** 1/2

HANS ZIMMER, HENNING LOHNER, MARTIN TILLMAN, ETC

Decca B0004405-02

12 tracks - 63:11

Horror movie audiences confound me. They want new thrills and chills, but also seem content to watch the same old ones wrapped up in new packaging. I guess it's the same for horror movie soundtracks.

Helter Skelter *

MARK SNOW

BSX BSXCD1001

19 tracks - 60:15

I have to admit that I normally wouldn't judge a CD by its cover, but this one looked just awful. Take a look at it. Does that guy even look like Charles Manson? No, he looks like an actor with a beard scowling into the camera. Manson is crazy. This guy doesn't look

CD Reviews: The House of Flying Daggers and Finding Neverland



The House of Flying Daggers ****

SHIGERU UMEBAYASHI

Sony Classical – SK 93561

20 tracks – 49:48

It's not my habit to begin a favorable review of a score by gushing over a song, but I have to make an exception here: "Lovers," the love song from Zhang Yimou's martial arts film, <

CD Reviews: Bernard Herrmann Compilation and Fitzwilly



Bernard Herrmann Film Scores: From Citizen Kane to Taxi Driver ****

BERNARD HERRMANN

Milan M2-36095

11 tracks - 69:57

With the recent passing of Elmer Bernstein, the good folks at Milan have seen fit to re-release a wonderful recording of theirs from 1992 which features Mr. Bernstein conducting

CD Reviews: The Cooler and Fog of War



The Cooler ** 1/2

MARK ISHAM/VARIOUS

Commotion/Koch KOC CD 5707

14 tracks - 50:01

The good news is that Mark Isham has a new score out -- the bad news is it only makes up half of this CD release. While it's hard to completely dismiss The Cooler, the half that Isham isn't

Brubaker ****

LALO SCHIFRIN

Intrada Special Collection Volume 10

33 tracks - 65:11

If variety is the spice of life, then Lalo Schifrin is one spicy dude. He's a whole lot more than the guy who wrote the Mission: Impossible theme. While most readers are probably
