Aisle Seat 10-31: Halloween '17 Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 10/30/2017 - 9:00 PM
Kicking off Kino Lorber’s October releasesTHE FLAMINGO KID (***½, 100 mins., 1984, PG-13) is a winning slice-of-life comedy from “Happy Days” creator Gary Marshall, starring Matt Dillon as a Brooklyn kid who gets a job as a cabana boy at a posh Long Island beach club during the summer of ’63. Richard Crenna plays a car dealer and local card shark who tutors Dillon in the game and life itself, much to the consternation of Dillon’s blue-collar dad Hector Elizondo, who is troubled by his son’s fascination with people from a “higher class.”

The latest release from La-La Land is the first CD of Alex North's score for the 1956 evil-child thriller THE BAD SEED, which earned Oscar nominations for actresses Nancy Kelly, Eileen Heckart and Patty McCormack. The La-La Land Bad Seed features the original LP tracks plus five additional cues.

The Bad Seed is currently planned to be the label's final release for the year until they close out 2017 with their annual "Black Friday" releases of high-profile and in-demand scores and box-sets, to be announced the day after Thanksgiving (Friday, November 24).


Varese Sarabande plans to announce their latest batch of CD Club releases next week.


On Sunday, November 5 at Santa Monica's Aero theater, the American Cinematheque has scheduled an advance screening (in 70mm!) of Kenneth Branagh's remake of MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS, and composer Patrick Doyle is currently scheduled to join the film's screenwriter, Michael Green (Logan, Blade Runner 2049, American Gods) in a discussion following the film.

Aisle Seat 10-24: Superman, Spider-Man & The Old Dark House
Posted By Andy Dursin 10/23/2017 - 9:00 PM
After five Spider-Man movies, you might wonder what was left in the tank of Peter Parker’s webslinging adventures to translate to the big screen. Sony’s newest “reboot,” SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (**½, 133 mins., 2017, PG-13)may not provide overwhelming evidence that its existence was actually necessary, but the film still overcomes a bumpy start and a bland overall feel to provide an appealing enough ride for fans.

Intrada has announced two new releases this week, both featuring scores from horror films from the 1980s -- a remastered version of director Frank LaLoggia's lush, Bernstein-esque score for his cult classic ghost story LADY IN WHITE (this two-disc set also includes LaLoggia's concept album "Frankie Goes to Tuscany"); and the first CD release of Richard Band's TERRORVISION (limited to 500 units.)


Varese Sarabande has announced three new CDs in their Limited Edition (500 units each for this batch) of contemporary scores, all from this year's films and expected to begin shipping next week: the animated sequel NUT JOB 2: NUTTY BY NATURE, scored by Heitor Pereira (the Despicable Me/Minions films); the period thriller THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM, starring Olivia Cooke, Bill Nighy, Douglas Booth and Eddie Marsan, scored by Johan Soderqvist (Let the Right One In, In a Better World, Kon-Tiki); and the score for the romance HAMPSTEAD, pairing Brendan Gleeson and Oscar winner Diane Keaton, directed by Joel Hopkins (Last Chance Harvey) and composed by Oscar winner Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love, Billy Elliot).

Aisle Seat 10-17: Shout! October Wrap
Posted By Andy Dursin 10/16/2017 - 9:00 PM
At the head of the class among October’s catalog releases is Shout Factory’s “Shout Select” Blu-Ray edition of THREE O’CLOCK HIGH (***½, 90 mins., PG-13), director Phil Joanou’s underrated 1987 high school gem that was stealth-produced by Steven Spielberg, who either couldn’t – or wouldn’t – put his name on the film, depending on whose story you believe.

Aisle Seat 10-3: October Arrival Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 10/2/2017 - 9:00 PM
The modern preoccupation with belated film sequels and remakes has trickled down to even “Blade Runner,” Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi classic that drew neither widespread critical kudos or commercial acceptance when it was first released in 1982. A cult favorite that’s obviously been more warmly embraced as the years have passed, Scott is onboard as a producer of BLADE RUNNER 2049 (***, 163 mins., R), an ambitious follow-up from one of its predecessor’s original writers and director Denis Villeneuve, architect of glacially paced works like “Sicario” and “Arrival.”
