Aisle Seat 6-20: 1492, June Horrors
Posted By Andy Dursin 6/19/2017 - 9:00 PM
In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. In 1992, two big-budget movies sank like a stone at the global box-office, failing completely to find an audience as the world celebrated – more or less – the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the New World. The two competing pictures – Ridley Scott’s expensive 1492: CONQUEST OF PARADISE and Alexander Salkind’s “Christopher Columbus: The Discovery” – were heralded at Cannes as far back as 1989, when the Salkind picture was first announced.

Aisle Seat 6-13: Lawnmower Man, Shout June Wrap
Posted By Andy Dursin 6/12/2017 - 9:00 PM
For reasons I still don’t understand, THE LAWNMOWER MAN (108/141 mins., 1992, R) opened in Rhode Island during February 1992, several weeks ahead of the rest of the nation. Even the Boston Globe’s review, from a critic who was sent south to cover the film, mentioned this oddball fact, enabling those of us in the Ocean State to brag about seeing the Pierce Brosnan/Jeff Fahey virtual reality thriller before everyone else. If only social media was prevalent back in the early ‘90s, we could’ve also warned the movie-going public to avoid this goofy turkey, which nevertheless managed to gross a potent $30 million on a budget that threw nearly all of its funding behind then-cutting edge CGI animation.

50 Years of Elmer Bernstein: Peter Bernstein and John Landis host Concerts in Dublin & London
Posted By Tim Burden 6/10/2017 - 9:00 PM

----------------

Peter Bernstein conducts 2 very special concerts of his father's music this month in Dublin and London, featuring director John Landis. Appropriate when you think of the unique history both of these cities have with EB's music. Many scores were recorded in Dublin and London during the 70s, 80s and 90s, with Elmer especially enjoying the lush surroundings of the Emerald Isle whilst owning a house there.

Aisle Seat 6-6: Wonder Woman, 4K Wrap
Posted By Andy Dursin 6/5/2017 - 9:00 PM
The fact that we haven’t had many female super-hero flicks makes WONDER WOMAN (***, 143 mins., PG-13) a novelty by itself – and within the parameters of the genre, this lavish DC Comics adventure is a sturdy and well-made fantasy that pits the Amazon Princess against the German forces of WWI…or, to be more precise, Aries, the God of War, whom Diana (Gal Godot) believes is the source of all of mankind’s horrifying military struggles.

Film Score Friday 6/2/17
Posted By Scott Bettencourt 6/1/2017 - 9:00 PM
The latest release from Intrada is Max Steiner's Oscar-nominated score for the classic 1954 military drama THE CAINE MUTINY, starring Humphrey Bogart (as the unforgettable, paranoid Captain Queeg), Jose Ferrer and Fred MacMurray. The film originally inspired a non-score LP that was yanked from release, making it a legendarily rare item; only a small amount of Steiner's score had ever been released, and Intrada's Caine CD is the first release of the film's complete music from the original tracks.


Tadlow has announced two brand-new soundtrack CD releases of particular historic importance: the original tracks for Elmer Bernstein's final score, the documentary CECIL B. DEMILLE: AMERICAN EPIC, and a re-recording of Dimitri Tiomkin's score for the notorious 1946 romantic Western DUEL IN THE SUN, starring Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones, with Nic Raine conducting the City of Prague Philharmonic Ochestra & Chorus.


The latest release from Quartet is an expanded, two-disc version of Ennio Morricone's score for the 1990 gangster drama STATE OF GRACE, starring Sean Penn, Robin Wright, John Turturro, Burgess Meredith, John C. Reilly, Ed Harris and Gary Oldman (because apparently they couldn't afford any good actors). The Quartet State of Grace features both the complete score that Morricone recorded for the film as well as the sequencing featured on MCA's original soundtrack CD.


The latest CD in Varese Sarabande's We Hear You series will be Dave Grusin's score for the 1974 thriller THE YAKUZA, starring Robert Mitchum, directed by Sydney Pollack and written by Paul Schrader, Leonard Scharader and Robert Towne, a score whose only previous release was from the Film Score Monthly label.


This Saturday, June 3rd, at 2:00, composer Geoff Zanelli will be signing CDs of his brand-new score for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES, at Creature Features in Burbank, CA.

Aisle Seat 5-30: Memorial Day Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 5/29/2017 - 9:00 PM
For a studio that must have dollar bills plastered all over its walls, it’s disappointing how poorly Walt Disney has treated its live-action back catalog, particularly on Blu-Ray. The studio that once broke away from “kiddie product” to form Touchstone Pictures back in the mid 1980s has absolutely turned its back on that mission from decades ago, eschewing “adult fare” for a steady diet of animated films, Marvel comic-book flicks, and Star Wars sequels. That has left a void in the care of its box-office hits that weren’t aimed at little tykes, with even blockbuster smashes like “Three Men and a Baby” – the singular highest-grossing film of 1987 – still never having been released in widescreen on home video at all, much less Blu-Ray.
