Film Score Friday 11/15/19
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 11/14/2019 - 10:00 PM
La-La Land has just released Tom Holkenborg's* score for the latest Terminator sequel TERMINATOR: DARK FATE, which returns Linda Hamilton and writer-producer James Cameron to the franchise. The label is also making available Lolita Ritmanis' score for the Latvian war drama DVESELU PUTENIS, known in English as Blizzard of Souls. (*when this column originally posted, I had stupidly attributed the Dark Fate score to Lorne Balfe, who actually scored the previous Terminator sequel; thanks to Bob DiMucci for the correction).


Kritzerland has just announced a CD of the music of concert and film composer GAIL KUBIK, featuring three concert pieces composed and conducted by Kubik -- Scenes for Orchestra (based on his unused score for I Thank a Fool), Scenario for Orchestra (based on his largely unused score for The Desperate Hours, the surviving tracks of which were featured on Intrada's Double Indemnity/Paramount noir set), and Stewball: Four Variations for Band.

The latest release from the BYU Film Music Archive is a three-disc set titled SADDLES, SAGEBRUSH AND STEINER: WESTERN SCORES OF MAX STEINER. Disc One features cues from Steiner's scores for Virginia City, Santa Fe Trail, San Antonio and Dallas; Disc Two features Rocky Mountain and The Charge at Feather River; Disc Three has The Lion and the Horse and Raton Pass.


La-La Land has announced two CDs to begin shipping this week -- an expanded and remastered edition of Michael Kamen's score for the 1989 cult classic ROAD HOUSE, featuring cues not included in Intrada's earlier release of the score (since my liner notes for the Intrada edition were not retained, I assume a massive letter writing campaign will ensue, and I thank my readers in advance), and a re-release of their CD of Harold Faltermeyer's score for the 1984 blockbuster action comedy BEVERLY HILLS COP.

- Carlo Savina - Saimel

Film Score Friday 11/1/19

The trailer for THE SONG OF NAMES, the new film from director Francois Girard (Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, The Red Violin, Silk, Boychoir), has an extremely unusual title card. Near the end of the trailer, after we get the expected title "FROM THE ACCLAIMED DIRECTOR OF THE RED VIOLIN," we get another title card:

ORIGINAL MUSIC BY
THE ACADEMY AWARD WINNING COMPOSER OF
THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY

I presume that the fact that Song of Names is a music-oriented film is a big factor, but I can't remember seeing  a contemporary trailer in which a score composer (at least, one who wasn't an otherwise already famous popular music figure) was used as such a prominent selling point, so good for Howard Shore.
