As expected, LA LA LAND won Oscars for Original Score (Justin Hurwitz) and Original Song ("City of Stars" - Hurwitz, Benj Pasek, Justin Paul).

Unless it was actually Moonlight. We're waiting for further updates.


The latest edition in Varese Sarabande's limited edition "We Hear You" series of CD releases of older scores pairs the LP tracks from two Neal Hefti scores for Oscar-nominated adaptations of Neil Simon comedies -- 1967's BAREFOOT IN THE PARK, starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda, and 1968's THE ODD COUPLE, starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. (The Odd Couple LP's contents included the main theme later popularlized by the long-running TV series, and dialogue tracks with -- gasp -- a laugh track).


Intrada plans to release one new CD next week.


On March 14, La La Land plans to release a two-LP set of one of Jerry Goldsmith's masterpieces, 1979's Oscar-nominated STAR TREK -- THE MOTION PICTURE. On March 28 they will re-release their 2-CD edition of Michael Kamen's original DIE HARD.


Composer Ibrahim Maalouf (Yves St. Laurent) won this year's Cesar award for Original Score for IN THE FORESTS OF SIBERIA

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

OUR BRAND IS CRISIS - David Wingo
 
"The insistent, intrusive music score by David Wingo doesn’t help matters, and neither do the too-many subsequent montages, all of which are of the always mistaken 'We Need A Montage' variety. What’s ultimately most frustrating is the evidence that the makers of this movie were fully capable of creating something as smart and ruthless as its lead character. They just decided to be ingratiating and sentimental."
 
Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
