Aisle Seat 1-16: It, Blade Runner Debut in 4K
Posted By: Andy Dursin 1/15/2018 - 9:00 PM
The modern preoccupation with belated film sequels and remakes has trickled down to even “Blade Runner,” Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi classic that drew neither widespread critical kudos or commercial acceptance when it was first released in 1982. A cult favorite that’s obviously been more warmly embraced as the years have passed, Scott is onboard as a producer of BLADE RUNNER 2049 (***, 163 mins., R; Warner), an ambitious follow-up from one of its predecessor’s original writers and director Denis Villeneuve, architect of glacially paced works like “Sicario” and “Arrival.”

The latest release from Intrada is a greatly expanded, two-disc edition of composer Michael Kamen's biggest box-office hit, the revisionist 1991 swashbucker ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES, starring Kevin Costner, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Morgan Freeman, Christian Slater and the late Alan Rickman as the Sheriff of Nottingham. The original soundtrack release on Morgan Creek featured 50 minutes of Kamen's score; Intrada's edition features 110 minutes plus 24 minutes of extras (though it does not include the film's hit song "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You", which earned Kamen his first Oscar nomination).

The latest release from La-La Land is STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE VOL. 2,  a four disc set featuring episode scores by Paul Baillargeon, David Bell, Jay Chattaway, Dennis McCarthy and Gregory Smith.

Varese Sarabande has announced three new soundtracks in their Limited Edition series of contemporary score CDs - the National Geographic Iraq War docudrama series THE LONG ROAD HOME, scored by five-Emmy winner Jeff Beal (House of Cards); the 2017 documentary MULLY, scored by Benjamin Wallfisch (Blade Runner 2049, Hidden Figures, It); and the adventure film THE RENDEZVOUS, scored by Austin Wintory (Captain Abu Raed, Grace).

BAFTA has announced their 2017 award nominations, including Original Music:

BLADE RUNNER 2049 - Benjamin Wallfisch, Hans Zimmer
DARKEST HOUR - Dario Marianelli
DUNKIRK - Hans Zimmer
PHANTOM THREAD - Jonny Greenwood
THE SHAPE OF WATER - Alexandre Desplat

Last weekend, Desplat's Shape of Water won the Golden Globe for Best Original Score - Motion Picture, while Benj Pasek and Justin Paul won Best Original Song - Motion Picture for The Greatest Showman's "This Is Me."

Aisle Seat 1-9: January Freeze Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 1/8/2018 - 9:00 PM
Shout! Factory kicks off the new year with a most welcome Special Collector’s Edition of Joe Dante’s MATINEE (***½ , 99 mins., PG), a charming character piece starring John Goodman as Lawrence Woolsey, a William Castle-esque B-movie producer heading down to the Florida Keys right as the Cuban Missile Crisis is about to play out. His efforts to sell his newest epic – the B&W chiller “Mant!” – are contrasted with the lives of local teenagers, including an army brat (Simon Fenton) whose little brother is as excited about watching Woolsey’s new flick as he is terrified by its subject matter of a “half-man, half ant!” creature running amok.
