Film Score Friday 9/17/21

The latest releases from Music Box are a CD featuring music from three films scored by Philippe Sarde and directed by Pierre Granier-Deferre -- ADIEU POULET (The French Detective), L'AMI DE VINCENT and L'ETOILE DU NORD; Philippe Rombi's score for the new thriller BOITE NOIRE; and a remastered reissue of the score for the 1982 comedy DEUX HEURES MOINS LE QUART AVANT JESUS CHRIST, composed by Jean Yanne and Raymond Allesandrini

The latest soundtrack release from Quartet is a re-release of their two-disc edition of Jerry Goldsmith's Oscar-nominated score for BASIC INSTINCT

I think the best thing about this week in movie music is that though I'd never heard of composer Jongnic Bontemps until now, he has two movies opening in Los Angeles theaters this week, Last Night in Rozzie and My Name Is Pauli Murray.

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has announced this year's winners in the Creative Arts Emmys, including the following music categories:

Aisle Seat 9-14: 24th Anniversary Edition!
Posted By: Andy Dursin 9/13/2021 - 10:00 PM
As we kick off the Aisle Seat’s 25th season, September is shaping up to be one of the most exciting – and priciest – months for Blu-Ray/UHD owners in recent memory. And, frankly, we’ve earned it: the horrific last 18 months have been a nightmare in more ways than one, especially where movies and the art of the theatrical experience are concerned. With more and more audiences staying home – because of COVID, or content, or for some of us, both – studios seem to be seizing the moment, remastering classics and cult favorites for both high definition formats in brand new transfers that let them shine in new and exciting ways.

Aisle Seat 9-7: Warner Archive, Paramount Presents Catalog Wrap
Posted By: Andy Dursin 9/6/2021 - 10:00 PM
Warner Archive’s Blu-Ray release of Savage Steve Holland’s nutty 1986 romp ONE CRAZY SUMMER (93 mins., 1986, PG; Warner Archive) marks a splendid way to cap the unofficial summer season: a guilty pleasure with high-spirited fun and plenty of laughs. A sequel of sorts to Holland’s semi-classic teen comedy “Better Off Dead,” “Summer” reunites stars John Cusack and Curtis Armstrong in a tale of a high school graduate who ventures to Nantucket for the summer.

La-La Land has announced two new releases for the week of September 14 - an expanded, two-disc edition of one of James Horner's finest scores, for director Edward Zwick's 1989 Civil War epic GLORY, starring Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman, Cary Elwes, Andre Braugher, and an Oscar-winning Denzel Washington; and an expanded and remastered version of one of Elmer Bernstein's great comedy scores, for the Bill Murray vehicle STRIPES.

Varese Sarabande has announced two new Deluxe Edition score releases from their CD Club: Jerry Goldsmith's score for the 1992 period drama LOVE FIELD, which earned Michelle Pfeiffer a Best Actress nomination, featuring an expanded version of Goldsmith's score (previously released on CD by Varese) as well as the additional music by Bill Payne that replaced several of Goldsmith's cues in the final film; and a two-disc edition of the soundtrack for DANTE'S PEAK, the 1997 volcano thriller (not to be confused with the competing Volcano), featuring the score by John Frizzell which includes two themes composed for the film by James Newton Howard (who had originally signed on as the film's composer until a scheduling conflict intervened) as well as cues co-written with Jeff Atmajian, Brad Dechter, Steve Porcaro and John Van Tongeren. 

The latest release from Caldera features Zbigniew Preisner's score for the brand-new religious biopic MAN OF GOD (definitely not to be confused with the just-released Ted Bundy movie No Man of God).

Dragon's Domain has announced their latest batch of new releases - WEBS AND OTHER WONDERS, a collection of music for nature documentaries composed by John Scott; THE DAVID SPEAR COLLECTION VOL. 2, featuring two scores composed by the veteran composer-orchstrator, Mortuary Academy (1988) and Kiss Daddy Goodbye (1981); and a re-release of the score for MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE MEN, with Laurence Rosenthal adapting the music of Thomas De Hartmann.
