Film Score Friday 11/26/21
Posted By Scott Bettencourt 11/25/2021 - 10:00 PM
Varese Sarabande has announced two new Deluxe Edition CD Club releases - a two-disc expansion of the score for David Lynch's classic BLUE VELVET, which re-introduced Angelo Badalamenti to the world of film scoring (he had scored films in the 1970s as Andy Badale); and an expanded version of John Debney's score for the 21st century Christmas perennial ELF, the first of several scores Debney has composed for director Jon Favreau (Zathura, Iron Man 2, The Jungle Book).

La-La Land was scheduled to announce their latest batch of Black Friday CD releases today. Since I am currently on vacation, you can probably find up to date information about them on our Message Board.


Blue Velvet: The Deluxe Edition - Angelo Badalamenti - Varese Sarabande CD Club
Elf: The Deluxe Edition - John Debney - Varese Sarabande CD Club
The United Way - George Fenton - Gearbox

Aisle Seat 11-23: Mad Max & Middle Earth in 4K; Paramount Remasters
Posted By Andy Dursin 11/22/2021 - 10:00 PM
Director Milos Forman’s RAGTIME (154 mins., 1981, PG; Paramount) may have been a film that didn’t entirely live up to its lofty aspirations, yet seen afresh in Paramount’s 4K-mastered new Blu-Ray transfer, it’s a beautifully mounted, sumptuously designed adaptation of E.L. Doctorow’s celebrated novel, spectacularly shot by the great Miroslav Ondricek and memorably scored by Randy Newman.

Aisle Seat 11-9: An Autumn Catalog Harvest
Posted By Andy Dursin 11/8/2021 - 10:00 PM
Halloween may be over but Fall is still the season for creepy cinematic happenings, with Warner Archive jumping into the fray with a number of genre titles debuting on Blu-Ray. Among them is the weird MGM/Filmways production EYE OF THE DEVIL (96 mins., 1967), a troubled shoot that saw star Kim Novak reportedly squabble with producer Martin Ransohoff en route to her departing the movie deep into filming. Novak was replaced with Deborah Kerr, who mostly goes through the motions in a moody yet tension-free piece that would be one of the studio’s last to be shot in black-and-white.

Aisle Seat 10-26: Kino Lorber October Cornucopia Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 10/25/2021 - 10:00 PM
Three directors, two cinematographers, several writers and all kinds of production trouble made THE PURSUIT OF D.B. COOPER (104 mins., 1981, PG) a problematic movie that somehow made its way into theaters to meet Universal’s promised November 1981 release date. One of those films that’s more interesting for what happened off the screen than on it, this Polygram Pictures product kicks off Kino Lorber’s October release slate, one that’s filled with a varied array of titles from the pre-Code era through the late stages of Michael J. Fox’s box-office appeal.
