Aisle Seat 2-9: Kino, Criterion & Crimson Peak
Posted By Andy Dursin 2/8/2016 - 9:00 PM
Tim Matheson might’ve been over the hill by the time he starred in UP THE CREEK (**½, 96 mins., 1984, R), a surprisingly watchable Orion Pictures release with Matheson and fellow “Animal House” alum Stephen Furst vying to win a white water rafting contest. Yet this Samuel Z. Arkoff release still boasts genial fun for ‘80s comedy fans, even if it never quite reaches the level of hilarity its premise suggests.

Film Score Friday 2/5/16
Posted By Scott Bettencourt 2/4/2016 - 9:00 PM
The latest CD from Intrada presents the soundtrack to the 2013 horror sequel HATCHET III, with music by Scott Glasgow (Bone Dry, The Gene Generation, Lo, Riddle). They have also released a 2-LP set of their recently expanded version of Jerry Goldsmith's WARLOCK.


Varese Sarabande has announced three new limited edition CDs of contemporary film scores which are expected to begin shipping next week -- the soundtrack to DEVIL'S KNOT, director Atom Egoyan's docudrama about the child murders covered in the Paradise Lost documentary trilogy, starring Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth and scored by Egoyan's regular composer, Oscar winner Mychael Danna; the Chinese period action drama RISE OF THE LEGEND, with music by Shigeru Umebayashi (Hannibal Rising, Curse of the Golden Flower, House of Flying Daggers); and the soundtrack to the recent animated film from Japan, GAMBA, scored by Benjamin Wallfisch (Desert Dancer, Hours, The Escapist).

Aisle Seat 2-2: Martial Arts of a Different Kind
Posted By Andy Dursin 2/1/2016 - 9:00 PM
The martial arts film genre underwent a series of changes in the 1980s, from the introduction of ninjas as a focal point in Cannon’s long-running, cult-favorite series to both low-budget knockoffs and major studio productions alike embracing the current fads in the post-Bruce Lee era. Two very different films – one a studio production from a veteran director, another a low-budget labor of love that was both unreleased and thought lost to the ravages of time – come to Blu-Ray this month, offering genre fans a pair of contrasting viewing experiences that are each entertaining in their own respective ways.

La-La Land announced two new CDs for release this week: a remastered edition of Jerry Goldsmith's action-packed score for the 1975 Western TAKE A HARD RIDE, with an eclectic cast including Jim Brown, Fred Williamson, Jim Kelly, Lee Van Cleef, Barry Sullvan and Dana Andrews; and a greatly expanded version of Arthur B. Rubinstein's score for the 1995 "real time" thriller NICK OF TIME, with Johnny Depp (in perhaps the most normal role he ever played in a feature) as a loving father pressured into performing an assassination, featuring 38 more minutes of score than the original Milan release.


Next week Intrada plans to release one new CD as well as an LP of a previously released CD.


Varese Sarabande plans to announce their latest batch of limited edition releases this coming Monday.

Aisle Seat 1-26: Twilight Time, New Releases
Posted By Andy Dursin 1/25/2016 - 9:00 PM
Twilight Time kicks off the new year with a handful of fine new Blu-Ray additions, from a pair of glossy, widescreen studio productions to more adult, frank character studies from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.

Film Score Friday 1/22/16
Posted By Scott Bettencourt 1/21/2016 - 9:00 PM
Intrada has announced two new CDs this week -- the first commercial release of Charles Bernstein's emotional orchestral score for the surprisingly good 1983 film version of Stephen King's CUJO, featuring cues not included on the previously released composer promo of the score, which paired it with Bernstein's Covenant; and the LP tracks from Paul Glass's score for director Otto Preminger's stylish psychological thriller BUNNY LAKE IS MISSING, starring Carol Lynley, Keir Dullea and Laurence Olivier (as a police detective, no less -- what a franchise that could have made).


Quartet has announced their slate of January releases. The latest releases are a two-disc set of Gato Barbieri's jazzy score for the controversial modern classic LAST TANGO IN PARIS, featuring both the complete score recorded for the film and the album tracks; and Diego Navarro's score for the recently released animated feature CAPTURE THE FLAG. Next week they are releasing Gabriel Yared's score for the brand-new French drama CHOCOLAT, starring Omar Sy (Jurassic World, The Intouchables), and the soundtrack to the new Danish film TORDENSKJOLD & KOLD, scored by Henrik Skram.


The latest release in Varese Sarabande's subscription LP-to-CD series is John Scott's music for the 1986 miniseries (which aired on Masterpiece Theater) MOUNTBATTEN: THE LAST VICEROY, with Nicol Williamson and Janet Suzman as Lord and Lady Mountbatten, and Ian Richardson (in the kind of color-blind casting we don't see any more, for good reason) as Nehru.

Aisle Seat 1-19: January Chiller Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 1/18/2016 - 9:00 PM
We may be just a few days into 2016 but already there’s a candidate for “Unknown Movie Discovery of the Year” on Blu-Ray: FIGURES IN A LANDSCAPE (**½, 110 mins., 1970, R), an altogether weird film that, by my count, has never been released on home video in any format in this country. Joseph Losey’s strikingly shot tale of two prisoners (played by Robert Shaw and Malcolm McDowell) trying to escape a country with a helicopter in endless pursuit has never received wide distribution since its original Cinema Center Films release over 45 years ago, making Kino Lorber’s Blu-Ray a stunning visceral experience for first-time viewers.
