La-La Land has announced two new CDs for next week -- the first-ever release of the original score tracks from Elmer Bernstein's beloved music to the Oscar-winning original version of TRUE GRIT, and the previously announced CD of Bill Conti's jazzy score for the 1982 remake of I, THE JURY.

Most of our readers probably already know this, but John Mauceri will be conducting a concert of Danny Elfman's music from the films of Tim Burton at the end of Ocotber at L.A.'s Nokia Theater, with Elfman himself performing in person. Ticket sales have been so overwhelming that there will now be three concerts, on October 29, 30 and 31st.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

THE FAMILY - Evgueni Galperine, Sacha Galperine

"The tone problem is evident in the overture, a quick but graphic massacre of a man, his wife, son, and daughter, after which the killer saws off one of the dead man’s fingers. The music is sprightly rather than grim, and Besson isn’t one to stop and linger on the tragic dimension of what we’ve seen. Bodies are just fodder to him. 'The Family' belongs to a genre of carnage comedy in which the violence is plentiful but neither wholly serious nor wholly facetious -- an ugly twilight zone that only the rarest films manage to make sense of."

David Edelstein, Vulture

INSIDIOUS, CHAPTER 2 - Joseph Bishara

"Much like 'The Conjuring,' the camera work becomes more urgent and threatening as the horror builds, as if one of demons were handling the cinematography. Joseph Bishara's piano-heavy score is appropriately menacing, and ties into the plot in a subtle but meaningful way."

Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle

"Specs and Tucker bumble their way through danger, supplying physically comical laughs in an otherwise dour downer of a thriller too reliant on Joseph Bishara's nerve-jangling string score and Wan's artless visual jolts to ratchet up the scares."

Dann Gire, Daily Herald

"Having found a successful formula in the original -- which made almost $100 million worldwide -- Wan sticks with the maxim of 'if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,' right down to the shimmering opening credits, the ominous score and the sudden scares."

Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star

JAYNE MANSFIELD’S CAR - Owen Easterling Hatfield

"Georgia-lensed production boasts a rich sense of place abetted by a twangy score and period-appropriate soundtrack."

Justin Chang, Variety
