Aisle Seat 3-1: March Arrival Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 2/29/2016 - 9:00 PM
Folks seem to have forgotten that the original “Species” was one of the bona-fide sleepers of Summer ‘95, raking in an impressive $60 million (a solid figure for 20 years ago, back before the benefit of 3-D and IMAX) and spawning a slew of sequels. Scream Factory brings those follow-ups to Blu-Ray this month with all new special features, offering fans a high-def trip back into the gooey world of sex, blood and H.R. Giger’s half-alien/half-human creatures.

Intrada has just released two new LPs - a two-disc set of Laurence Rosenthal's rousing score for CLASH OF THE TITANS, and Vince DiCola's score for the beloved '80s sequel ROCKY IV. For those who'd like a heads-up about what CDs they may be releasing next week, go to this thread.


Varese Sarabande plans to announce four new CD Club releases next Monday.


Creature Features in Burbank will be holding two film music related events tomorrow, February 27th -- a panel discussion and CD signing for THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER, currently scheduled to feature composer Bruce Broughton and director Mike Gabriel, at 2:00 p.m; and a restrospective and CD signing for the imminent [SPOILER!] Intrada release of music from the 1980s revival of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, hosted by our own Lukas Kendall and currently scheduled to feature composers Dennis McCarthy and William Goldstein and writer-producer Alan Brennert, at 4:30 p.m.

Anyone else going through infant potty training? Believe me, it’s a drain on movie viewing! Without any further discussion of my personal life, here’s a look at what I’ve been able to sample over the last few days – with some tasty exploitation favorites on Blu-Ray being first and foremost on the list.

Intrada announced two new CDs this week -- an expanded version of the soundtrack to Disney's 1990 animated sequel THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER, featuring more than twice as much Bruce Broughton music as in the original soundtrack release (this was the project that kept Broughton from scoring Home Alone); and the score for the 2013 India-set drama SIDDHARTH, composed by Andrew Lockington (City of Ember, Journey to the Center of the Earth, San Andreas).


The latest release from Varese Sarabande's subscription LP-to-CD series is Jay Ferguson's score for 20th Century Fox's Nightmare on Elm Street-ish 1988 horror film BAD DREAMS, starring Jennifer Rubin, Bruce Abbott, Richard Lynch, Dean Cameron and Harris Yulin, which was the first feature from writer-director Andrew Fleming (Threesome, The Craft, Dick, Hamlet 2).


This year's Grammy winners included Antonio Sanchez's BIRDMAN score for Score Soundtrack for Visual Media; Lonnie Lynn (Common), Cle Smith and John Stephens (John Legend) for Selma's "Glory" for Song Written for Visual Media, and GLEN CAMPBELL: I'LL BE ME for Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media. Fifty Shades of Grey's Oscar-nominated song "Earned It" won R & B Performance for The Weeknd.

Aisle Seat 2-16: February Freeze Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 2/15/2016 - 9:00 PM
Shout Factory’s first Blu-Ray volume of THE VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION has quickly become one of the most collectible releases in its format’s history. The 2013 anthology combined various films from the American-International library and went out of print a year ago; now fetching over $200 on the secondary market, its value is likely to increase over time, even if the individual movies within it are re-released piecemeal. For that reason alone, fans are advised to snap up Shout’s second volume, as well as the all-new VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION VOLUME III, which streets next week.

Aisle Seat 2-9: Kino, Criterion & Crimson Peak
Posted By Andy Dursin 2/8/2016 - 9:00 PM
Tim Matheson might’ve been over the hill by the time he starred in UP THE CREEK (**½, 96 mins., 1984, R), a surprisingly watchable Orion Pictures release with Matheson and fellow “Animal House” alum Stephen Furst vying to win a white water rafting contest. Yet this Samuel Z. Arkoff release still boasts genial fun for ‘80s comedy fans, even if it never quite reaches the level of hilarity its premise suggests.

The latest CD from Intrada presents the soundtrack to the 2013 horror sequel HATCHET III, with music by Scott Glasgow (Bone Dry, The Gene Generation, Lo, Riddle). They have also released a 2-LP set of their recently expanded version of Jerry Goldsmith's WARLOCK.
