Quartet has announced three new soundtrack releases -- Michael Giacchino's score for the 2017 drama THE BOOK OF HENRY; Rachel Portman's music for the hit family film A DOG'S PURPOSE (both of these score were previously released as downloads by Backlot Music); and Fernando Velazquez' score for the comedy-thriller 70 BINLADENS.

Aisle Seat 4-16: April Assault '19
Posted By Andy Dursin 4/15/2019 - 9:00 PM
Kicking off this week’s Aisle Seat are two new, impressive restorations of vintage – and rarely screened – widescreen films from Flicker Alley: the German-produced 70mm travelogue FLYING CLIPPER, known as MEDITERRANEAN HOLIDAY upon its U.S. theatrical run (158 mins., 1962), and the once long-lost Cinerama feature THE GOLDEN HEAD (115 mins., 1965). The latter was never released in North America and ended its London theatrical run early, where it was replaced by “Flying Clipper” – now both of them have been collected in a pair of terrific new Blu-Ray combo packs, the latter with a 4K UHD presentation as well.

The latest release from Intrada is a two-disc set featuring an expanded version of what may not be Craig Safan's best known score but is arguably his finest work, SON OF THE MORNING STAR, the ambitious two-part CBS TV adaptation of Evan Connell's novel about General Custer and Little Big Horn, starring Gary Cole as Custer and adapted by Melissa Mathison (E.T.).


Varese Sarabande is expected to announce one new limited edition CD today.

Intrada plans to release one new two-disc set next week.


La-La Land has announced a tentative schedule of releases for the next several weeks.

On April 9, they plan to release the score for the 2019 indie THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT, starring newly minted Oscar nominee Sam Elliott with music by Joe Kraemer (The Way of the Gun, Jack Reacher, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation). That day they will also release John Williams' SAVING PRIVATE RYAN on vinyl.

On April 23, they will release Gil Melle's previously unreleased score to director Michael Winner's 1977 demonic horror thriller THE SENTINEL, as part of their recent partnership with Universal.

On May 14, they plan to release Dario Marianelli's score for the recent Transformers prequel BUMBLEBEE, and a two-disc set titled THE QUINN MARTIN COLLECTION VOL 1., featuring music from many of the TV productions from the 60s/70s small-screen icon, which included Barnaby Jones, Cannon, The F.B.I., The Fugitive, The Invaders, The Streets of San Francisco, Twelve O'Clock High, and the anthology series Quinn Martin's Tales of the Unexpected, as well as several movies-of-the-week (his only theatrical feature was The Mephisto Waltz). Composers represented on this set will be Bruce Broughton, Jerry Goldsmith, Dave Grusin, John Parker, Nelson Riddle, Lalo Schifrin, David Shire, Duane Tatro and Patrick Williams

On May 28 they will release another score from their Universal partnership, Harold Faltermeyer's music for the comedy-mystery sequel, FLETCH LIVES.

Aisle Seat 4-2: April Arrival Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 4/1/2019 - 9:00 PM
If you’ve been a regular Aisle Seat reader over the years, you know that one of my sources of cinematic kryptonite is the over-the-top horror/sci-fi extravaganza. Gems like “Lifeforce,” “Dreamcatcher” and John Frankenheimer’s “Prophecy” have gotten a fair shake in these quarters, even if my reasons for enjoying all of them have little to do with how the pictures were intended to be appreciated. In just a few weeks Scream Factory brings us another of these guilty pleasures — William Girdler’s massively entertaining, bizarre horror epic THE MANITOU (103 mins., 1977, PG), which answers the question “what might’ve happened if Blake Edwards directed a horror movie in the style of ‘The Exorcist’ the year after ‘Star Wars’ was released?”

Quartet has announced three new soundtrack releases -- a disc pairing two previously unreleased Hollywood romantic comedy scores from 1963, WHO'S BEEN SLEEPING IN MY BED?, composed by George Duning, and WIVES AND LOVERS by Lyn Murray; the first CD release of Francis Lai's score for the 1967 comedy I'LL NEVER FORGET WHAT'S 'ISNAME, starring Oliver Reed and Orson Welles and featuring the same cues as the original LP release; and DOLOR Y GLORIA, the score for the new film from Pedro Almodovar, written by his regular composer, three-time Oscar nominee Alberto Iglesias.


One of Kritzerland's new CDs features three previously released scores (now with improved sound quality) composed for stage productions by top feature film composers -- LAURETTE by Elmer Bernstein, RASHOMON by Laurence Rosenthal, and DEATH OF A SALESMAN by Alex North

Varese Sarabande has announced three new CD Club releases -- a greatly expanded Deluxe Edition of Leonard Rosenman's score for the 1990 sequel ROBOCOP 2 ("Ro-bo-cop...."); a two-disc Deluxe Edition of James Newton Howard's score for the Stephen King sci-fi/horror movie DREAMCATCHER (previously released as part of Varese's Stephen King boxed set); and an Encore Edition of one of the label's earliest -- and longest out-of-print -- Club releases, Jerry Goldsmith's charming score for the period drama RAGGEDY MAN (which is already out of stock from most sellers).


The latest CD from La-La Land is a remastered and slightly expanded release of James Horner's lively score for the sci-fi-tinged 1987 thriller PROJECT X, starring Matthew Broderick as a young Air Force pilot who becomes part of a government experiment involving chimpanzees.

Aisle Seat 3-19: March Madness Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 3/18/2019 - 9:00 PM
Big, colorful and refreshingly unpretentious, AQUAMAN (***, 143 mins., 2018, PG-13; Warner) finally sets the DC Universe on an upbeat, escapist course that’s far removed from the dread-inducing (and at times dreadful) Zach Snyder productions that characterized the post-Christopher Nolan era of the brand’s cinematic endeavors. Gone are the mopey Batman and guilt-ridden Superman, and in their place is Jason Momoa’s hard-drinking, charismatic Arthur Curry — the half-breed son of the Queen of Atlantis (Nicole Kidman) who finally battles for his rightful Atlantean throne just in time to prevent his half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) from igniting a war with the “surface people.”

Aisle Seat 3-12: Ridley Scott Revisited, Oscar Wrap
Posted By Andy Dursin 3/11/2019 - 9:00 PM
This year’s reigning Best Picture winner, GREEN BOOK (***½, 128 mins., 2018, PG-13; Universal), is a winning “road trip” movie that provides stars Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali with two plum roles. It also manages to be heartwarming and unpretentious, preferring a humanistic, at-times comic approach to its subject matter – and in a year that saw “Black Panther” somehow net scores of award nominations, it’s unquestionably one of the most rewarding pictures of 2018.
