Aisle Seat 7-19: Scorpion, Superman & The New World
Posted By Andy Dursin 7/18/2016 - 9:00 PM
Before it becomes a wan recycling of its classic 1984 predecessor, Paul Feig’s GHOSTBUSTERS (**½, 117 mins., PG-13) is, if nothing else, an energetic attempt at revitalizing one of the most popular – and certainly groundbreaking for its genre-bending mix of humor and cutting-edge special effects – comedies of all-time.

Film Score Friday 7/8/16
Posted By Scott Bettencourt 7/7/2016 - 9:00 PM
Last week's new release from Intrada is a two-disc set featuring James Horner's rousing music for the 1991 pulp adventure movie THE ROCKETEER, with both the complete, expanded score as well as the original CD sequencing.

The label plans to release one new CD next week.


The latest release from La-La Land is a reissue of the two-disc remastered edition of John Debney's old fashioned symphonic score for the lavish 1995 pirate swashbuckler CUTTHROAT ISLAND. It is expected to begin shipping next week.


The latest release from Kritzerland is of unusual historical importance  -- the unused score for the 1971 drug addiction drama THE PANIC IN NEEDLE PARK, which gave Al Pacino his first starring role. The film was ultimately released with no score, but an original score was actually composed and recorded for the film by none other than Ned Rorem, the acclaimed concert composer and equally acclaimed memoirist.


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is inviting a record 683 actors, filmmakers, executives and publicists to join their membership, including the following prospective music branch members: score composers Lesley Barber, Wendy Blackstone, Kathryn Bostic, Carl Davis, Fitzgerald Diggs (RZA), Germaine Franco, Peter Golub, Deborah Lurie, Heather McIntosh, Marcus Miller, Antonio Pinto, Raphael Saadiq, Joseph Trapanese, Shigeru Umebayashi, Fernando Velazquez and Marcelo Zarvos; songwriters Mary J. Blige, Sia Furler, Taura Stinson and Will.i.am; and music editors Joseph S. DeBeasi, Joanie Diener, Amanda Goodpaster, Tanya Noel Hill, Jim Schultz and Del Spiva.

Aisle Seat 7-4: Festive 4th Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 7/3/2016 - 9:00 PM
Kicking off the 4th of July fireworks this year is Kino Lorber’s “42nd Anniversary Edition” of Joseph Sargent’s tense, terrific 1974 thrillerTHE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE (****, 105 mins., R). For those unfamiliar with this classic New York City-set picture, Walter Matthau stars as a subway transit chief plunged into a terrorist situation when a trio of armed robbers (led by Robert Shaw, just before he set sail in “Jaws”) take hostage of a subway train. Shaw’s plan? Extortion, of course, but despite being assisted by Martin Balsam and Hector Elizondo, Matthau has a few tricks up his own sleeve that prove to be a bit more than the terrorists can handle.

Aisle Seat 6-28: Movies! Olive & Twilight Time
Posted By Andy Dursin 6/27/2016 - 9:00 PM
James Wan’s arguably even more confident follow-up to his 2013 horror smash, THE CONJURING 2 (***½) isn’t just a superior sequel: it’s one of the creepiest, and all around most-satisfying, supernatural thrillers since the original “Poltergeist.” Bucking the trend of disastrous horror follow-ups like “The Exorcist II” and “Poltergeist III,” Wan here tackles the controversial “Enfield Haunting” of the 1970s, wherein a working class British family was allegedly attacked by a poltergeist, garnering worldwide media attention in the process.
