Quartet has announced two new upcoming CDs: the LP tracks from John Addison's lovely score for the 1965 period comedy THE AMOROUS ADVENTURES OF MOLL FLANDERS, starring Kim Novak, Richard Johnson and Angela Lansbury; and the first-ever soundtrack release to the 1995 satirical comedy CANADIAN BACON, about a U.S. war against our neighbor to the north, starring John Candy and Alan Alda. Canadian Bacon is the only non-documentary directed by Oscar winner Michael Moore, and featured a score composed by the great Elmer Bernstein and his son Peter Bernstein, and conducted by Elmer.

The next CD from Kritzerland brings together the surviving score tracks from three previously unreleased Franz Waxman scores for Paramount films: the Ceylon-set romantic drama ELEPHANT WALK, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Peter Finch; the high-seas adventure BOTANY BAY, starring Alan Ladd and James Mason; and Billy Wilder's WWII comedy-drama STALAG 17, which earned William Holden the Best Actor Oscar.

Intrada plans to release two CDs next week.

On June 15, the Golden State Pops Orchestra will present a concert of "Music from the Star Wars Universe," including classic John Williams pieces such as "The Asteroid Field," "The Forest Battle" and "Luke and Leia" as well as music from Joel McNeely's Shadows of the Empire concept album and cues from Star Wars video game scores.

AFTER EARTH - James Newton Howard

"As if to counterbalance the outsize dynasty-building ambitions of the movie’s producer/co-star, Shyamalan scales back at key moments. Will Smith’s centerpiece monologue, for instance, is composed in chiaroscuro static shots, which lends the scene ambiguity. The crash sequence plays out without any music; when James Newton Howard’s score does come in, it’s frequently modernist and dissonant -- not exactly the sort of music you’d expect in a father-son bonding movie. Shyamalan’s sensibility may not be enough to turn 'After Earth' into a great (or even very good) film, but it does yield interesting -- and at times strikingly realized -- results."

Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, The Onion

"There are any number of other quibbles one might make regarding 'After Earth,' from its second-rate CGI to its generic score to its empty references to 'Moby Dick.'"

Christopher Orr, The Atlantic

THE EAST - Halli Cauthery (score), Harry Gregson-Williams (themes)

"From d.p. Roman Vasyanov’s widescreen cinematotraphy to Andrew Weisblum’s and Bil Pankow’s editing to Halli Cauthery’s pulsing score (with themes credited to Harry Gregson-Williams), the production feels crisply tuned in all departments."

Justin Chang, Variety

NOW YOU SEE ME - Brian Tyler

"But Leterrier -- who previously did such over-the-top actioners as 'Clash of the Titans,' 'The Incredible Hulk' and two 'Transporter' films -- can't seem to sit still, particularly when he's sitting behind the camera. He's constantly, pointlessly, swooping all over the place, turning everything into a vertiginous blur. Add to that a brassy score by Brian Tyler that's so atrociously corny I hoped it was ironic, a pointless car chase, real-life 'illusions' that are more like impossibilities and a third-act twist that just makes nonsense of most of what's already happened and -- well, the movie may think it's pulling a rabbit out of a hat. But it's more like a turkey."

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger

"Composer Brian Tyler’s big, brassy, Lalo Schifrin-esque score stands apart from an otherwise serviceable tech package."

Scott Foundas, Variety

"'Now You See Me' is a superficially diverting but substance-free concoction, a would-be thriller as evanescent as a magic trick and one that develops no suspense or rooting interest because the characters possess all the substance of invisible ink. Propelled by hyperkinetic action, constantly swooping camera moves and a techno score that never quits, this attractively cast caper makes such a big point of things not being what they seem that, by process of elimination, you can hardly help guessing who's really behind everything."

Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

SHADOW DANCER - Dickon Hinchliffe

"The gray-green color palette (offset only by the bright red trench coat Collette wears throughout the movie, the one touch of the femme fatale accorded to this otherwise unglamorous spy) and the spare, defiantly unbombastic score by Dickon Hinchliffe (who also scored 'Red Riding' and 'Project Nim') suit the project’s mood."

Dana Stevens,

"Much of this opening stretch is wordless, with Dickon Hinchliffe’s score -- melancholy strings trellised by repetitive guitar and piano lines -- serving as connective tissue."

Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, The Onion

"Dickon Hinchliffe’s score nicely enhances the sense of unraveling mystery."

Justin Chang, Variety

Thanks, as always, for the great work you do putting these posts together, Scott. Just one small correction.

"Metsan Tarina - Palo Aalito - MovieScore Media"

It should be Panu Aaltio

Thank you for the compliment and the correction, will fix. Even though I have one or two of his CDs, I almost certainly managed to combine his name with the California city Palo Alto.
