Aisle Seat 5-24: Kino Lorber Memorial Day Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 5/23/2022 - 10:00 PM
Kino Lorber’s on-going round-up down the dusty trail of Sergio Leone’s Clint Eastwood westerns has already yielded a superlative 4K UHD of their greatest collaboration – “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly” – and that classic’s two “Dollars” predecessors receive similar restorative triumphs this month on both UHD and remastered Blu-Ray as well.

The latest release from Intrada is an expanded and remastered two edition of John Williams' score for the 1986 juvenile adventure SPACECAMP. They have also released a newly remastered edition of Craig Safan's THE LAST STARFIGHTER.

Their latest Kickstarter project will be raising funding to re-record two Bernard Herrmann scores - the thrilling ON DANGEROUS GROUND, and Alfred Hitchcock's remake of his own THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, the only Hitchcock-Herrmann score which has never received a commercial release (apart from re-recordings of selected cues).

Varese Sarabande is expected to announce their latest limited edition CD Club releases today.


A Gathering of Friends [film and concert music] 
- John Williams - Sony 
The Last Starfighter [remastered] - Craig Safan - Intrada
A Man in Love/Premier Voyage

Aisle Seat 5-17: May 4K Spins, Blu-Ray New Releases
Posted By: Andy Dursin 5/16/2022 - 10:00 PM
Dynamic 4K UHD of Bernard Rose’s quasi-classic 1992 thriller CANDYMAN (99 mins., R/Unrated, Shout! Factory) offers a spectacular new Dolby Vision grading of the movie – via a 4K transfer of the original negative – which enhances Anthony B. Richmond’s cinematography through the use of HDR. This Rose/Richmond-approved master brings “Candyman”’s home presentation – complete with both theatrical and unrated cuts – that much closer to matching the theatrical experience, while Philip Glass’ rightly celebrated score clicks with a multitude of audio options: 5.1 and 2.0 DTS MA mixes which have appeared on previous releases, along with a new Dolby Atmos soundtrack that adds height effects to an already-superlative audio experience.

Aisle Seat 5-10: Imprint, Arrow May Releases
Posted By: Andy Dursin 5/9/2022 - 10:00 PM
Being a movie buff and a Blu-Ray format enthusiast usually leads you to far corners of the globe in search of certain titles and limited-edition packages. Even though beloved labels like Twilight Time have closed up shop, others both here and abroad have taken up the reigns for the devoted, with Imprint Editions – an off-shoot of Australia’s Via Vision – having released dozens of wonderful titles over the last couple of years from studios like Paramount, Sony, and MGM, many of them debuting in HD for the first time, with others premiering exclusive new supplements. These Collector’s Edition packages are nearly always highly recommended, and aren’t difficult to find here in the U.S. either.

Aisle Seat 5-3: May Arrival Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 5/2/2022 - 10:00 PM
A nice diversity among 4K UHD catalog titles is on-tap this week, with studios bringing us lush new restorations of one of the great MGM musicals ever made – SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN (103 mins., 1952; Warner) – as well as one of the wildest forays into adult animation ever undertaken by a major studio, HEAVY METAL (90 mins., 1981, R; Sony), the latter in a spectacular Steelbook edition alongside its limp, in-name-only sequel “Heavy Metal 2000.”
