Aisle Seat 8-21: Kino Lorber Rundown & Scream Madness
Posted By: Andy Dursin 8/20/2018 - 9:00 PM
The fall of 1984 brought movie-goers three different pictures all related to the struggle of American farmers – one a period picture (Robert Benton’s “Places in the Heart”), the others contemporary pieces (Mark Rydell’s “The River” and the Jessica Lange/Sam Shepard drama “Country”) that even share identical sequences of farmers, unable to pay back their loans, having to suffer the indignity of seeing their equipment sold off at auction. Their politics aside, however, it’s interesting to note that the film that received more mixed reviews – namely, Rydell’s Sissy Spacek/Mel Gibson vehicle – is actually a notably superior film, offering a grander cinematic scale than COUNTRY (108 mins., PG), which mostly plays out in a slow-going malaise before its grandstanding climax.

Aisle Seat 8-14: August Assault Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 8/13/2018 - 9:00 PM
There’s a certain irony involved with Warner Archive’s long-awaited Blu-Ray release of SUPERGIRL (**½, 125 mins., 1984, PG) this month. Warner Bros. was supposed to release the film in the U.S. during the summer of 1984, but decided after seeing the final product that they’d be better off not to. Tri-Star – then a fledgling studio funded by the triumvirate of Columbia Pictures, CBS and HBO — then rescued the movie, but cut some 20 minutes out of the completed print and released it during a busy Thanksgiving season during which it was all but lost in theaters.

The latest release from Intrada is a greatly expanded, two-disc edition of Trevor Jones' symphonic score for the 1983 swashbuckler NATE AND HAYES, starring Tommy Lee Jones and Michael O'Keefe.


Varese Sarabande has announced a limited edition CD of Gary Chang's score for FIREWALKER, the light-hearted 1986 action adventure from director J. Lee Thompson (The Guns of Navarone), teaming Chuck Norris and Lou Gossett Jr.; the CD features the same cues as Varese's original LP.

Intrada plans to release one new CD next week.


La-La Land has announced their planned slate of releases for August. On August 14th, they will release a two-disc set of Lorne Balfe's score for the just-released blockbuster sequel MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT, and the first soundtrack release of Henry Mancini's score for the 1979 comedy remake of THE PRISONER OF ZENDA starring Peter Sellers, the second in La-La Land's new "Universal Heritage Collection" partnership.

On August 28th, they will release an expanded version of John Williams' Oscar-nominated score for Steven Spielberg's 1998 WWII epic SAVING PRIVATE RYAN; a CD of Ramin Djawadi's music for the new Amazon TV series JACK RYAN, with John Krasinski playing the Tom Clancy analyst-turned-field-agent character previously played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine; and a two-disc LP of John Williams' classic score for E.T.
