The latest release from Intrada is a two-disc edition of Danny Elfman's score for author Cliver Barker's second feature as a director, the wild horror thriller NIGHTBREED, with Disc One featuring the full score and Disc Two featuring the original 1990 CD sequencing plus 21 minutes of extras.


La-La Land has announced two new releases for April, expected to begin shipping next week -- a CD pairing two scores by Oliver Nelson (The Six Million Dollar Man, Zigzag) -- the Western DEATH OF A GUNFIGHTER and the adventure film SKULLDUGGERY; and an expanded version of Sylvester Levay's score for NAVY SEALS, featuring the stereo tracks from the original Intrada release plus previously unreleaed cues from mono sources.


The latest of Caldera's releases of rare David Shire music presents music from three of his 1970s TV projects -- the pilot score for the short-lived TV series THREE FOR THE ROAD, and cues from two TV movie scores, THE GREATEST THING THAT ALMOST HAPPENED and DADDY, I DON'T LIKE IT LIKE THIS.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MAGICAL NEGROES - Michael Abels
 
"From there, Aren becomes Roger’s new recruit for the society, whose hidden headquarters they teleport to via some secret door. (And the Hogwarts-adjacent references don’t stop there.) Thankfully, Libii’s world-building here is pleasingly cinematic as Aren and Roger make their way through production designer Laura Fox’s attractively dressed and lit, chandelier-heavy alternate universe. Accompanying them is Michael Abels’ majestic score that embraces and hints at something more mystical and enthralling than the movie deserves. Soon, a punch-drunk Aren learns the basics of his new job at a training session: He is supposed to treat every selected nervous white person like a valued client and strive to be acceptable to whites, while staying authentically Black in ways the whites would approve."
 
Tomris Laffly, IndieWire 

CABRINI - Gene Back

"Rather than sully its heroine with any tension of her own, Barr’s script offloads most of the drama to the film’s disposable supporting cast, who include a sex worker with a heart of gold (the winning Romana Maggiora Vergano) and a street urchin who finds a loaded gun he isn’t afraid to use. These people have their own troubles, but Cabrini is happy to float in the air just above them, her black frock always an inch or two above the ground as if suspended by the unwavering golden wail of Gene Back’s orchestral score."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 
 
"Despite the strong cast, decent sets and costume design, the film falls short when capturing Cabrini’s life overall. The film is too long in certain instances and too short in others that could have been expanded. The tone is frequently too pompous and the music far too pretentious. Despite the scenes that pique your interest and compel you to finish the film, this biopic is relatively forgettable and one that you watch once and move on."
 
Zofia Wijaszka, The Wrap 

CLUB ZERO - Markus Binder
 
"Taken as a bone-dry satirical comedy, this would be a cruelly glib treatment of material sensitive enough to merit a trigger warning in bright yellow prior to the opening credits. But this agonizing tour through private agony deserves to be taken more seriously than that; the bloodcurdling revelation of a hidden Tupperware full of vomit touches too precise a nerve to be dismissed as rib-elbowing just because a dog starts lapping it up moments later. The nattering, pulsating score that evokes tribal musical traditions gives away the real game here, Hausner’s focus most squarely placed on the stomach-turning efficacy with which insular thought protects and perpetuates itself. It’s an eerily appropriate conceptual foundation for a film bound to drive away those not on Hausner’s frequency, pitched at such a piercing high that it could make blood trickle out the ears of all those able to hear it."
 
Charlie Bramesco, The Playlist 

"Along with the percussive twang of Markus Binder’s score, which supports almost every major beat in the movie with an extra comic pop, the two-tone surreality of Hausner’s set and costume design also works to ensure that impressionable audiences don’t take 'Club Zero' too literally. The film is still destined to be labeled as 'dangerous,' but its various buffers and backstops start to become all the more important once it begins to seem like Ms. Novak might be onto something."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 
 
"Written by Jessica Hausner and Geraldine Bajard and directed by Hausner -- who has expressed her interest in the fairytale, 'The Pied Piper of Hamelin' -- 'Club Zero' is similarly fable-like, all unnatural colours and heightened reality. (A few visual details seem to nod to other fairytale-like movies, such as 'The Witches.') And the soundtrack is suitably hypnotic and church-y."
 
Liz Braun, Original CIN 
 
"Riddled with uncomfortable dialogue, audacious sequences, and a piercing score, 'Club Zero' has all the ingredients to become a future cult classic. It’s for a great reason, too. The film contains a terrifying yet wonderful performance from Wasikowska, it includes brilliant commentary on the dangers of following blindly, and it provides great entertainment. The quirky script may not be for everyone, but my best guess is that no matter what you will think of this holistically, something in 'Club Zero' will keep you talking."
 
Patrice Witherspoon, Screen Rant 

"'Club Zero' is a thriller because it’s based on our desire to see these children of the damned lured back from the abyss. The musical score, by Markus Binder, is a spooky yet satirical wonder, full of drums that sound like the background of Hare Krishna drone chants. The movie turns into a series of power duels between Miss Novak and the school headmistress, Miss Dorset (Sidse Babett Knudsen), as well as the parents, who the more outraged they are the more ineffectual they become."
 
Owen Gleiberman, Variety
 
DUNE: PART TWO - Hans Zimmer

"But, ultimately, such quibbles are crushed by the sheer audacity of Villeneuve’s execution. As Hans Zimmer’s propulsive score juices the drama and thrill of Paul’s quest, 'Part Two' achieves the sort of big-screen momentousness that is too rarely dared in contemporary cinema. Anyone swept away by the 2021 film will hunger to return for a second helping -- and be richly rewarded."
 
Tim Grierson, Screen Daily 
 
"Villeneuve has honoured that tone, in his own way. Josh Brolin, as Paul’s mentor Gurney Halleck, performs a brief ditty about how his 'stillsuit is full of p*ss'. And the film’s stacked with fiddly, HR Giger-inspired machines, like the desiccation pump that sucks vital water out of the Fremen dead. 'Part Two' is as grand as it is intimate, and while Hans Zimmer’s score once again blasts your eardrums into submission, and the theatre seats rumble with every cresting sand worm, it’s the choice moments of silence that really leave their mark."
 
Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent

"Meanwhile, Paul learns to take down spice harvesters and conduct raids, his pale skin covered in dark goggles and shawls. How are we to receive this gargantuan slab of occupation and racial cooptation? It’s a hand grenade of a question that will no doubt be lobbed at 'Dune: Part Two,' as it is, sometimes, at 1962’s soaring 'Lawrence of Arabia,' the origins of which were an influence on Herbert. The answer will vary from viewer to viewer, but to these eyes Villeneuve enters into what could have been toxic with a conscious, scene-by-scene sense of fatalism, Chalamet stirring his character’s rise with notes of rage, guilt, unhappiness and imposter syndrome. Composer Hans Zimmer’s drone-laden score never strikes a tone of triumphalism; so much of this movie’s tricky poise is his."
 
Joshua Rothkopf, Los Angeles Times
 
"Much of 'Dune: Part Two''s opening hour concerns Paul’s efforts to train with the Fremen and, in doing so, earn their trust and respect -- a difficult process given their view of outsiders, and one that only concludes when he successfully rides one of Arrakis’ giant sandworms. That feat is the first of a handful of showstoppers staged with muscular electricity by Villeneuve, who further establishes himself as one of the medium’s masters of massiveness. He creates a deft interplay between mammoth scale and up-close intimacy as well as light and dark, warmth and cold, and anxious silence and thunderous cacophony -- the last courtesy of Hans Zimmer’s chest-rattling score and its ominously euphoric main theme. In so doing, the director keeps tension at a fever pitch throughout, be he orchestrating huge battles between armies, showdowns between individuals, or quieter exchanges between Paul and his Fremen mates, whose love and loyalty for him are as hazardous as they are comforting."
 
Nick Schager, The Daily Beast 

"Beyond its breathtaking battles and galactic machinations, all soundtracked by a Hans Zimmer score in which the German composer seems to have set all the nobs turned to 'loudest possible', what’s most impressive about this seriously-impressive blockbuster sequel takes place beneath the surface. And it’s not the colossal sandworms."
 
Phil de Semlyen, Time Out
 
"In these and other scenes requiring computer-generated imagery -- for example, in the rendering of this world’s organic-looking spaceships or the dragonfly-like 'ornithopters,' which transport characters on Arrakis from place to place -- the images have a solidity and texture that’s unusual in the context of the outer-space blockbuster genre. Combined with Hans Zimmer’s literally unearthly score -- its booming, jagged chords seem to emerge from the same barren vistas as the dunes, the rock cliffs, and the building-sized worms -- the geography and technology of this fictional world strike the viewer as genuinely new and strange, no easy task in an era when fictional space exploration is so common the outermost reaches of the galaxy can sometimes feel routine."
 
Dana Stevens, Slate.com
 
"Visually, 'Dune: Part Two' builds on what the first movie has offered. It looks similar, but everything is just a little bit more lavish and striking. The battles are bigger, the sandstorms more violent. When Chalamet, as Paul Atreides, finally gets to show off how he mastered riding the sand it makes for a truly exciting moment that will have many jump out of their seats. Unfortunately, when the story calls for thousands of people cheering, charging ahead, or surrounding the main character, they appear as visibly computer-generated effects. Hans Zimmer’s thunderous score is another impressive feat that adds dramatic heft to the proceedings. Yet the most memorable moments are the smaller hand-to-hand, sword-to-sword fights, and in particular a climactic one between Atreides and Feyd Rautha."
 
Murtada Elfadl, The Onion AV Club

"While the plotting in 'Part Two' is undeniably richer than the first film, its greatest assets are once again on a craft level. Greig Fraser, who won the Oscar for cinematography the first time, tops his work there with stunning use of color and light. It’s in the manner the sun hits Chalamet’s face at a certain angle or the wildly different palettes that differentiate the Harkonnens and the Fremen. The browns and blues of the desert culture don’t feel arid as much as grounded and tactile, while the Harkonnen world is so devoid of color that it’s often literally black and white -- even what look like fireworks pop like someone throwing colorless paint at a wall. Hans Zimmer’s Oscar-winning score felt a bit overdone to me in the first film, but he smartly differentiates the cultures here, finding more metallic sounds for the cold Harkonnens to balance against the heated score for the Fremen. Finally, the effects and sound design feel denser this time, and the fight choreography reminds one how poorly this has been done in other blockbuster films."
 
Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com 

"These early scenes represent the very best of what Villeneuve can bring to this story, as they viscerally bring to life 'a place where nothing can live without faith.' It’s because the arid deserts are so merciless that we can understand why the Fremen suck the moisture out of their enemies’ bodies and honor their own dead by pouring their water into a giant pool, and it’s because of an indelible new track from Hans Zimmer’s semi-recycled score -- a bittersweet wail that cuts deeper than any of the music he wrote for 'Part One' and sustains the emotion of this movie long after the script has run out of steam -- that we can parse the complicated roles that anger, pride, and resentment play in the Fremen’s need for outside help. And then, of course, there’s Chani. The skeptical and self-reliant Fremen was the patron saint of everything that didn’t work about the last movie, as Spaihts and Villeneueve reduced her character to a living reminder of all the sacrifices their adaptation had to make on its way to the screen. In 'Part Two,' Chani is allowed to take her rightful place at the heart of Paul’s story, even as she questions whether or not it should belong to him (and even as the script dramatically streamlines her role in it).  Zendaya is more than up for the challenge. Not to belittle Chalamet, whose furrowed brow sows doubt in all the right places, but the most interesting thing about Paul’s trajectory is how it’s reflected across Zendaya’s face. So much of this increasingly interminable film is spent on slow-motion shots of silhouettes walking towards the sunset as Zimmer goes ham over the soundtrack, but all it takes is a single reaction shot of Chani for the drama to snap back into focus."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 

"Running close to three hours, 'Dune: Part Two' moves with a similar nimbleness to Paul and Chani’s sandwalk through the open desert. The narrative is propulsive and relatively easy to follow, Hans Zimmer’s score is enveloping, and Greig Fraser’s cinematography offers breathtaking perspectives that deepen our understanding of the fervently sought-after planet. All these elements make the sequel as much of a cinematic event as the first movie."
