Aisle Seat 10-8: 4K Frights!
Posted By: Andy Dursin 10/7/2019 - 9:00 PM
4K owners have a quartet of new Warner releases ideal for Halloween viewing to select from this October, starting with genre favorites GREMLINS (***½, 106 mins., 1984, PG) and Stanley Kubrick’s take on Stephen King’s THE SHINING (***, 146 mins., 1980, R), more a piece of visceral, technical achievement than an engaging dramatic experience. While one benefits a bit from the 4K enhancement, the other receives a jaw-dropping transfer that ranks among the best in the format.

Film Score Friday 10/4/19
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 10/3/2019 - 9:00 PM
La-La Land has announced an impresssive slate of new releases for October 17th -- their highly anticipated release of the original tracks from Franz Waxman's classic, groundbreaking score for BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN; an expanded two-disc soundtrack for Steven Spielberg's 2002 Philip K. Dick adaptation MINORITY REPORT, whose score by (of course) John Williams balances typically gorgeous melodies with thrilling action cues evocative of his 1960s sci-fi TV music; a second volume in their Quinn Martin Collection series, focusing on the music for the sci-fi classic THE INVADERS, with contributions from Domnic Frontiere, Sidney Cutner, Irving Gertz, Richard Markowitz, and Duane Tatro; and Lorne Balfe's score for director Ang Lee's imminent sci-fi action thriller GEMINI MAN, starring Will Smith...and Will Smith!!!


The Varese Sarabande CD Club has announced three new limited "Deluxe Edition" releases, expected to begin shipping next week -- a greatly expanded two-disc release of the final score for the hit 1997 thriller AIR FORCE ONE, composed by Jerry Goldsmith with additional music by Joel McNeely, based on Goldsmith's themes (the film's first, unused and still commercially unreleased score was composed by Randy Newman, of all people); the first-release of the score for the 1975 True Grit sequel ROOSTER COGBURN, which paired screen icons John Wayne (reprising his Oscar-winning title role) and Katharine Hepburn (in an homage to her classic The African Queen) in a light-hearted Western adventure with music by Laurence Rosenthal; and a re-release of their two-disc edition of Michael Giacchino's score to the hit 2009 franchise re-starter STAR TREK


Quartet has announced two new soundtrack CDs, both featuring the first-ever score releases for two Paramount films with music by Oscar-winners -- ROUGH CUT, the 1980 romantic caper comedy directed by Don Siegel, written by Larry Gelbart (who was so unhappy with the end result he used the pseudonym "Francis Burns," a reference M*A*S*H fans should appreciate), and starring Burt Reynolds, Lesley Ann-Down, and David Niven, with the legendary Nelson Riddle adapting the music of the equally legendary Duke Ellington for the film's score; and HARLEM NIGHTS, the period gangster comedy-drama which was the directing debut of Eddie Murphy, pairing him with Richard Pryor and feturing a score by Herbie Hancock

Aisle Seat 10-1: Kino Lorber, Holocaust on Blu-Ray
Posted By: Andy Dursin 9/30/2019 - 9:00 PM
Kino Lorber’s September slate of Studio Classics offers movie buffs a number of fascinating titles debuting on Blu-Ray: a DeMille color epic from the early ‘40s, two Hitch-like Universal ‘60s thrillers, and a trio of comedy classics that would instantly define “the Ealing touch” in screen comedy.
