The last remaining Goldsmith/Dante collaboration awaiting an official expansion, here at last! Major kudos to Intrada for this fine release, and yes you can expect a very special Goldsmith Odyssey Soundtrack Spotlight covering this soon...

I truly enjoy the collaboration Goldsmith had with Joe Dante but if I had to make a list from best to least favorite then Matinee is unfortunately the one that is my least favorite. However with that said I might change my mind after hearing the expanded release. Well, that have happened before that I originally was not a fan of a score but hearing the expanded release made me change my mind so if that can happen to other score(s) then it can happen once more, who knows?

Great to complete the Goldsmith/Dante collaboration.
Not my favorite collaboration between them (this would be Gremlins, Gremlins 2 or The Burbs) but all of them are unique and great.
My least favorite probably is Looney Tunes but I still like it very much.

Certainly a winning score from Goldsmith, this is a nice surprise!

I think that may happen for you on this. Is it my favorite Goldsmith/Dante? No...not even in my top 3. But it may just be the most sweet and charming of all their collaborations! It's also quite a bit more complex than most people realize, with a surprising number of different varied themes that get developed throughout.

My least favorite Goldsmith/Dante is easily "Boo!", the Amazing Stories episode they collaborated on. It's...fine?

Love scratching off these titles from the complete grail list! That list is getting so small now…

Cool! I remember being impressed by an unreleased military theme in this score - I look forward to hearing it in all its (brief) glory. As always, much gratitude to Intrada.

Yup -- "Mobilization", Roger and Doug's favorite cue in the entire score which was left off the original album!

Roger really stumped me with it a few years back, when he put it in the fun "That unreleased cue" thread at the Intrada forum. I was POSITIVE it was an unreleased cue from Twilight's Last Gleaming! Very cool that Goldsmith channelled his 60s/70s side for that.

Niiiice. Yeah, total Twilight's Last Gleaming vibes.

Another score I assumed was a Varese perp title.
On the Dante/Goldsmith scale (and discounting the brief/annoying Boo AS episode), this one sits just above Loony Tunes at the bottom of the list.
It's okay, but very repetitive on the old album.
Kinda the way Rudy skips from A theme to B theme for the duration.
I remember a few brief action tracks in the film and some pseudo old style Monster Music for the film within the film.
It will never trouble their classic collabs (Gremlins, Explorers, The Burbs, Innerspace) in my most played chart.
But pleased for the nuggets around here who have craved this one.

I think this plays as MUCH less repetitive in complete form, Kev. There are actually quite a few different varied themes that get developed throughout the score, and it's got more range than you remember (or demonstrated by the previous album). Much more complex than Rudy, honestly (much more thematic material).

Yes the missing action music is here and it's wonderful. The "pseudo old style Monster Music" is NOT here because it's not pseudo: "Mant" was tracked by editor Marshall Harvey using a late 50s LP re-recording of *actual* Universal Monster Music! He talks about it in our imminent Soundtrack Spotlight podcast episode.

As for "The Shook-Up Shopping Cart", we all assumed Goldsmith wrote that fun bit, but in our Spotlight conversation, Marshall and Joe (Dante) set the record straight and revealed it was actually Alexander Courage.

Very nice to see this get the Intrada treatment but thought this would be a Varese title.

Thanks for the info, Yavar.
I wonder why the non Goldsmith and source music isn't included?
Love Field had all the additional music by that other dude.

Where did I say it wasn't included? The Shook-Up Shopping Cart was written for the film and IS included in the main program, along with the new recording of Steiner's A Summer Place and a few other things in the Extras section.

The Mant score is not included because it was tracked in from an old 50s LP, not written for the film.
