Sci-fi addicts need little introduction to Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s memorable ‘70s series SPACE: 1999 (aprx. 40 hours, 1975-77), which makes its way to Blu-Ray this month in a marvelous package from Shout! Factory – one that also debuts the series’ second season in a U.S. format release for the first time.

Film Score Friday 7/5/19

The latest CD from Intrada is a remastered, re-edited re-release of Jerry Fielding's score for the revenge Western CHATO'S LAND, starring Charles Bronson and directed by Michael Winner.


When director Cary Fukunaga was hired to direct the latest, still-untitled James Bond thriller, fans were understandably curious as to who would compose the film's score, especially since Fukunaga's relatively brief resume means that he's only worked with a handful of composers -- Marcelo Zarvos (Sin Nombre), Dario Marianelli (Jane Eyre), Dan Romer (Beasts of No Nation, Maniac) and T. Bone Burnett (True Detective) -- and it's just been announced that it is in fact Dan Romer who will score the film. Since his credits so far has been almost exclusively documentaries and other arthouse films, one might assume his "Bond 25" score will be a low-key effort a la Serra's GoldenEye or Arnold's Quantum of Solace, but either way he's a wild card-choice and I'm intrigued to hear what he brings to my favorite film music franchise.


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited a whopping 842 filmmakers, actors and publicists to join their organization, including the folllowing Music Branch invitees: composers Michael Abels, Nathan Barr, Kris Bowers, Jane Antonia Cornish, Annette Focks, Ludwig Goransson, Rupert Gregson-Williams, Hildur Gudnadottir, Jed Kurzel, Anne Nikitin, Heitor Pereira and John Swihart; songwriters Adele Adkins, Lady Gaga, Annie Lennox, Mark Ronson, Jadon Ruder, Roxanne Seeman, Scott Wittman and Andrew Wyatt; and music editors Missy Cohen, John Finklea, Richard Ford, Bryan Lawson, Peter Myles, Arthur Pingrey, Sherry Whitfield and Robin Whittaker

Aisle Seat 7-2: A Fourth Celebration
Posted By: Andy Dursin 7/1/2019 - 9:00 PM
American director Delbert Mann helmed a series of literary adaptations for both film and TV in the early ‘70s, including KIDNAPPED (107 mins., 1971, G). The Scottish location filming and delineation of the Jacobite Rising provide this take on the Robert Louis Stevenson novel (as well as a portion of its sequel) with a different flavor than the earlier Disney screen version, yet there are times this production could’ve used an infusion of its predecessor’s youthful swashbuckling.
