Intrada has announced two very different releases this week -- a greatly expanded version of Jerry Goldsmith's score for writer-director Stephen Sommers' hugely entertaining, guilty pleasure monster movie DEEP RISING, about a group of thieves who board a cruise ship only to discover the passengers have been massacred by an undersea beast; and THE TWELVE CHORUSES, a new recording of choral pieces composed by Miklos Rozsa, based largely on his classic scores for Ben-Hur and King of Kings.

The next release from Kritzerland features the surviving score tracks from one of the most beloved films of all time, Frank Capra's 1947 classic IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, scored by Dimitri Tiomkin (a re-recording of the score was released in the late 1980s, conducted by David Newman).

On August 5, Varese Sarabande will release Brian Tyler's score to the upcoming tornado disaster film INTO THE STORM.

This September, Ireland’s Pulse College will offer a one year’s Masters Degree program in Scoring for Film and Visual Media, with tutors including composers Conrad Pope and Richard Bellis. To help launch the course, they will be hosting a live Q&A event next Monday, June 16th, with a panel of experts covering several topics including Career Paths for Composers of Film/Visual Media.

THE CASE AGAINST 8 - Blake Neely

"With its action taking place primarily in the beige-walled, wood-accented environs of legal offices and courthouses, 'The Case Against 8' compensates for its visual blandness with good old-fashioned storytelling (and an occasionally obtrusive, blatantly heartstring-pulling score)."

Genevieve Koski, The Dissolve

"Assembly is pro if a bit blah, and overly dependent on studio-shot talking heads. Blake Neely’s score strikes a generic inspirational tenor."

Dennis Harvey, Variety

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS - Mike Mogis, Nate Walcott

"The settings are all-purpose suburban, and often cozier than you’d expect from the book. Setting the couple’s text messages on screen in word balloons infects even witty digital dialogue with a terminal case of the cutes (especially when the balloons disappear like twinkling stars). How can Boone include a dig at Peter Gabriel when he engages his own composers, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott (of the indie-rock band Bright Eyes), to pile pseudo-poignant feelings onto his movie’s touchy-feely montages and travelogues?"

Michael Sragow, Orange County Register

"Nuance isn't part of the production's program. The director, Josh Boone, goes for maximum emotional impact most of the time, and usually gets what he's after. (The music, by Mike Mogis and Nate Walcott, should come under the campaign to outlaw large, sugary drinks.)"

Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

"But for every subtle observation about life with cancer or being in love as a teen, there's an over-the-top moment or some ridiculously manufactured development that destroys the authenticity Boone is trying to create. This is felt most strongly in a subplot where Hazel and Gus go to Amsterdam to visit a reclusive author (Willem Dafoe) they both admire, resulting in a series of scenes that are so patently false and so obviously designed to sow the seeds for later emotional crescendos that you feel mugged and betrayed. (And this isn't even mentioning the Bon Iver-channeling score by Bright Eyes members Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott that lets us know when we need to be feeling things at every moment.)"

Tim Grierson, Deadspin

"Boone’s appropriately light touch emphasizes the underlying literary material, foregrounding the performances with occasional underplayed visual humor and reserving stylistic nuance for more contemplative scenes, attractively framed by cinematographer Ben Richardson. Mike Mogis and Nate Walcott’s score somewhat literally underlines the overly insistent, folky-leaning soundtrack selections from the likes of Tom Odell, Lykke Li and Ray LaMontagne."

Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter

FILTH - Clint Mansell

"In effective contrast to the bleak goings-on, the technical contributions are positively zesty. Matthew Jensen’s bright, restless lensing opts only for exaggerated graininess during a grimy lads’ weekend in Hamburg; Clint Mansell’s typically ambient scoring often cedes the spotlight to knowingly tacky pop selections on the soundtrack. Costume designer Guy Speranza evidently had fun kitting McAvoy out in a peacockish range of clashing shirt-and-tie combinations -- like much else in 'Filth,' all in the best bad taste."

Guy Lodge, Variety
