The latest release from Intrada presents the score for DRAGONHEART VENGEANCE, the fourth direct-to-video followup to the Oscar-nominated 1996 fantasy adventure. As with the other sequels and prequels, Vengeance is scored by veteran composer-orchestrator Mark McKenzie.


Hildur Gudnadottir continued her remarkable winning streak by receiving BAFTA's Original Score award for JOKER. It is an unusual year when the front runner for the Original Score Oscar is a female cellist from Iceland.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

THE CATCHER WAS A SPY - Howard Shore
 
"Rudd does a fine job of capturing the character's casual coldness, starting in an early scene where he tells Estella that he's traveling to Japan; when she says she's always wanted to see Japan, he smiles subtly and says, 'I'll take pictures.' And he's credible as an intellectual who holds intolerant or less-educated people in mild contempt, but manages to keep it in check when he has to. We definitely get the sense that Berg is a restless spirit, possibly driven by a desire to prove himself to a gentile-dominated world by being smarter and more athletic than most of the goys ordering him around. But except in certain scenes, such as a brutal alleyway beating that Berg inflicts on a homophobic teammate, a certain necessary dark fire is missing from the character and the performance, and it's hard to tell if this is due to miscasting, insufficiently imaginative writing and direction, or something else. The cinematography, production design, costumes and music are all superb, but the direction doesn't do much more than showcase them, rarely reaching for an expressionist or surreal touch that might've given us a glimpse of Berg's emotional interior, however fleeting."
 
Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com 

"Shot in burnished tones by Andrij Parekh on attractive locations (many in the Czech Republic), 'Catcher' has the moody handsomeness of old-school espionage films, and Howard Shore contributes an orchestral score that would very nicely suit the kind of trenchcoat melodrama 'Catcher' aspires to be. Yet somehow the players never quite convince they have the world’s fate in their hands (Peace’s ramrod-stiff turn feels like an imitation of military bearing from old war movies, while Giamatti puts too much comedy in his scaredy-cat academic) or that they’re actually inhabiting the designated period."
 
Dennis Harvey, Variety

DAMSEL - The Octopus Project
 
"With the introduction of Penelope about halfway through, 'Damsel' shifts gears and becomes a totally different movie. Whimsical traces remain, but at this point, the Zellners seem interested in exploring a mood that’s more darkly funny, intense and ultimately sad. (But the low-key pacing, which is often languid to the film’s detriment, remains a constant.) Penelope is the voice of reason, the pragmatist—and she’s the only one who is in this weird world. The Zellners find humor in that absurd contradiction, but they also recognize Penelope’s inherent loneliness and isolation, and the string-heavy score from The Octopus Project heightens the feeling of melancholy."
 
Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com 

"This is a shame, as the brothers clearly have an affinity for the genre and for how to play with some of its tropes. All the locations are terrific, notably some seaside spots in Oregon. Especially good, too, is the score by The Octopus Project, an electrified combination of banjo, musical saw, fiddle, guitar and flute."
 
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
 
INCREDIBLES 2 - Michael Giacchino

"Pixar films are famously beautiful when it comes to character design and art direction, but 'Incredibles 2' is one of the most significant achievements in this regard. The word that I kept thinking of was fluid. I have three kids, so trust me when I say that this is not a common word when it comes to family entertainment, much of which shoehorns in messages between clunky comedy scenes with no concern for flow and pacing. 'Incredibles 2' just moves beautifully, sliding from one scene to another with such grace and momentum. And the action sequences are among the best you’ll see all year. There’s a sequence with Elastigirl and a runaway train that’s gorgeously conceived and executed, and the climax is better than most Marvel action sequences. It’s a movie that’s constantly in motion, surprising you with the way it so seamlessly flows from action to comedy to family and back again, buoyed by a jazzy, fantastic score by Michael Giacchino. It’s a testament to Bird’s filmmaking ability how effortless 'Incredibles 2' often feels. Nothing feels too eager-to-please, even the Jack-Jack material, which is surprisingly funny and fresh."
 
Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com 
 
"And it would be one thing if Bird were simply going through the motions, just swapping Helen for Bob (who in the first movie was similarly called away) and gussying it up with all the technological advancements 14 years of development and experimentation will give you. 'Incredibles 2' takes place in a world that will be familiar to fans of the first; all of the buildings are midcentury modern (the Parrs’ new house is a stunner) and everything swings to the orchestral bounce of composer Michael Giacchino."
 
Drew Taylor, The Playlist 

"As before, one of the key creative contributions here is the super jazzy score by Michael Giacchino. Essentially unknown at the time, the composer put himself on the map with his work on the first entry and he's been one of the busiest soundtrack tunesmiths in Hollywood ever since. At 118 minutes, the new film is just three minutes longer than the original."
 
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
"Additionally, Michael Giacchino operatic score rivals John Williams‘ classics and the work of Industrial Light & Magic, partnered with a surprising amount of practical dinosaurs from Legacy Effects, is eye-popping as always."
 
Drew Taylor, The Playlist 

"But director J.A. Bayona ('The Impossible,' 'The Orphanage') and the screenwriters don’t seem to trust the creatures, so they throw in lots of distractions, such as an erupting volcano in the movie’s first half (You think you can outrun a dinosaur? Try outrunning molten lava!) and a truly bizarre subplot involving a little girl, James Cromwell in a neckerchief and the criminally underused Geraldine Chaplin. (Watch Chaplin in 'The Orphanage' to see how she and Bayona can do much better, on far less of a budget.) But even the heavenly chorus that’s working overtime  on the soundtrack can’t drown out the lack of chemistry between Howard and Pratt. And the movie too often defaults to people running around screaming -- which is, to be fair, the backbone of this franchise, but it gets awfully old here."
 
Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times 

LEAVE NO TRACE - Dickon Hinchliffe
 
"'Leave No Trace' isn’t always a a gripping adventure, and its vagaries occasionally become so broad that Tom and Will lose the specificity that binds them to each other, but the film is consistently at its best when it’s attuned to a quiet sense of harmony between all things. In a largely apolitical story that’s only discernible issue is our collective apathy towards vets, Granik’s unobtrusive direction helps avoid an 'us vs. them' mentality (and overpowers Will’s paranoia) through more organic expressions of unity -- the healing power of animals; Dickon Hinchliffe’s minimalistic score; how an empty house can keep two strangers warm."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM - Mia Doi Todd

"But otherwise, Mott’s judiciously compacted 'Dream' has a lot of clever ideas nicely worked in, from the inevitable role of personal electronic devices to an inspired climax wherein the performance of 'Pyramus and Thisbe' becomes a film-class assignment haplessly reminiscent of 'Turkish Star Wars.' Though the press materials cite Baz Luhrmann’s 'Romeo + Juliet' as a reference point, this is a more organic update than the flashy pop-cultural mashups that the Aussie showman has made of classic sources. Its tonal and stylistic gambits mesh more fully despite their surface divergences (not to mention smaller budgetary resources), encompassing everything from the faeries’ Burning Man-boho attire (costumes by Kate Mallor) and environs (courtesy of production designer Glen Hall) to music supervisor Dan Wilcox’s mixtape soundtrack. There’s room for a couple of actual musical numbers, composed by musician cast member Todd, and they, too, feel like an integral part of the whole rather than self-conscious window dressing.
 
Dennis Harvey, Variety 
 
"Love requited and not plays out through the thrashing of keystrokes on computers, phones and the odd typewriter before the four converge in nighttime Topanga Canyon, the woods filtered through deep reds and purples as the resident spirits do their mischief. Actor and slam poet Saul Williams makes a tender and quietly fierce Oberon, the fairy king. As the queen Titania, singer-songwriter Mia Doi Todd is compelling, as well as being a captivating onscreen musical performer (she also wrote the film’s lovely, well-deployed score)."
 
Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

PUZZLE - Dustin O'Halloran
 
"Turteltaub’s direction finds drama in quiet moments: He allows his actors play their internal struggles as quietly and realistically as possible, letting composer Dustin O’Halloran ('Lion') do a lot of the heavy lifting. His score promises early on that Agnes’ puzzle obsession will lead to personal fulfillment, the kind that borders on magic."
 
William Bibbiani, The Wrap 

"In line with the film’s generally understated vibe, most of the technical aspects are inconspicuous, apart from a fetching score by Dustin O’Halloran and the use of different versions of the apt canonical favorite 'Ave Maria,' sung memorably at one point on a subway by countertenor Matthew Shifrin."
 
Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
SHOCK AND AWE - Jeff Beal
 
"With elements of courtroom drama and high-level corruption investigation mixed into the heroes’ journey of four crusading reporters pursuing the truth about WMDs and Iraq when so many others became mouthpieces for the Bush administration’s hidden agenda, it seems Reiner is aiming for a sort of 'A Few Good President’s Men.' And everything from the old-fashioned score from Jeff Beal to the unobjectionable cinematography from Barry Markowitz, which relies heavily on gliding tracking shots to inject some dynamism into otherwise staid dialogue scenes, reinforces that impression. But 'Shock and Awe' lacks the fire of Reiner’s own 1992 hit, as well as the single-minded intelligence of Alan J. Pakula’s Watergate thriller, so despite its solid craftsmanship, it only sporadically reaches the dramatic heights of either."
 
Jessica Kiang, Variety 
 
SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO - Hildur Guonadottir

"The follow-up to the 2015 triple Oscar nominee has lost a few key players, including Oscar nominees Johann Johannsson and Roger Deakins, along with star Emily Blunt and director Denis Villeneuve. To say their absence can be felt is an understatement. On the one hand, it’s somewhat unfair to compare the current crew to that talented quartet, but director Stefano Sollima so often mimics the first film that it’s impossible not to do so. For example, the extended shots of helicopters along the US-Mexico border return, along with an imposing score, and a few road-set shootouts. And so we’re constantly reminded of elements that were simply done better in the last film and of the importance of craftsmen like Johannsson, Deakins, and Villeneuve."
 
Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com 
 
"'Soldado' features a similar pattern. Villeneuve’s A+ clinical, brutalist composure is what made 'Sicario' a hit and fan favorite. Continuing his ruthlessly efficient vision is Stefano Sollima (known for Italian crime thriller’s like 'Suburra' and Netflix’s 'Gomorrah' series), replete with Hildur Guðnadóttir, a collaborator of Jóhannsson who unfortunately phones in a carbon copy of the anxiety-riddled score of bassy doom blasts straight from the center of hell (original, it was panic-inducing, now, it’s rote).
 
Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist
 
"The plan, which uneasily reveals itself against the ominous rumble of Hildur Guðnadóttir’s bass-driven score, involves kidnapping the 12-year-old daughter (Isabela Moner, terrific) of cartel kingpin Carlos Reyes in plain daylight and letting everyone think that the Matamoros cartel was responsible. Reyes, according to the 'Sicario' backstory, was the super-boss who ordered the assassination of Alejandro’s wife and family (above even the jefe he avenged in the first movie), although it’s never satisfactorily explained why 'this time it’s personal' if 'last time it was personal' as well."
 
Peter Debruge, Variety 
 
"Rough real locations and Dariusz Wolski's highly mobile cinematography provide ample atmosphere and verisimilitude. Deep and disturbing echoes of the original film's overwhelming score by the late Johannson are to be heard in the new music by one of his proteges and creative colleagues, Hildur Gudnadottir."
 
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
 
SORRY TO BOTHER YOU - Tune-Yards
 
"Things get even crazier once Cassius is invited to a house party/orgy hosted by Clearview CEO Steve Lift (Hammer) and makes a wrong turn on the way to the bathroom, uncovering the company’s darkest secret. Except, by this point, the movie has left the realm of cautionary tale and spun off into some sort of sci-fi fever dream, complete with eerie zither score (courtesy of Tune-Yards), as Cassius becomes an overnight internet sensation. (Why is it that movies never seem to understand how viral videos work? Here, a protester pegs him in the head with a can of Soda-brand soda, and the next thing you know, America’s children are buying bandaged-fro wigs and dressing as Cassius for Halloween.)"
 
Peter Debruge, Variety
