Film Score Friday 1/18/19
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 1/17/2019 - 9:00 PM
The latest release from Intrada is a two-disc set of James Horner's score for director Ron Howard's Oscar-winning 1995 docudrama APOLLO 13. Horner was nominated for the film's score as well as for Best Picture winner Braveheart, but the disappointment of losing the Oscar to Luis Bacalov's Il Postino was probably pretty well forgotten two years later due to his work on a little film called Titanic. MCA's original soundtrack release of Apollo 13 was a frustrating mixture of score cues, period songs and dialogue excerpts, while a score-only CD was available only as a hard-to-find promotional release. Disc One of Intrada's Apollo 13 features the complete film orchestral film score followed by Horner's electronic cues, totalling 76 minutes, while Disc Two features the cue sequencing of the promotional CD.


The latest soundtrack CD from Kritzerland presents the first-ever release of the score for the 1971 horror film THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD. The film was produced by Amicus Productions, which specialized in anthology horror films like Dr. Terror's House of Horrors, Tales from the Crypt and The Vault of Horror. Despite its title, The House that Dripped Blood was a not-especially-gory entry from the studio and told four horror tales, written by Psycho novelist Robert Bloch, revolving around the same house -- Denholm Elliot played a thriller writer who believes his murderer character has come to life; Peter Cushing becomes obsessed with a wax museum; Christopher Lee has a mysterious relationship with his seemingly innocent young daughter; and Jon Pertwee plays the star of a vampire film whose costume causes him to take a "method" approach to his role. The score was composed by Michael Dress [1935-1975], whose few other scores include the Amicus-produced science-fiction drama The Mind of Mr. Soames, starring Terence Stamp and Robert Vaughn.


Next week, La-La Land will be releasing a two-disc set of music from Seth McFarlane's hit sci-fi comedy series THE ORVILLE, featuring the show's main theme by nine-time Emmy winner Bruce Broughton, plus selections from the episode scores by Broughton, Andrew Cotttee, John Debney and Joel McNeely.


The latest limited edition release from Varese Sarabande presents the LP tracks from Lee Holdridge's score for the 1978 romantic docudrama sequel THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN, PART 2. Marilyn Hassett reprised her role as Jill Kinmont, a champion skier paralyzed in an accident, and the sequel depicts her romance with her eventual husband, played by Timothy Bottoms. (Beau Bridges played her ill-fated love interest in the first film, scored by Charles Fox who received an Oscar nomination for its song, "Richard's Window." Fun biopic trivia: the first film, released in 1975, takes place in the mid-late 1950s, while its sequel was made only 3 years later but takes place 20 years later)

Aisle Seat 1-15: January Rundown Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 1/14/2019 - 9:00 PM
Ringing in the new year with one of my favorite unsung movies of the mid ‘90s is Kino Lorber, whose Blu-Ray (eagerly awaited – at least by me) of Roland Joffe’s THE SCARLET LETTER (135 mins., 1995, R) gives viewers another chance to evaluate this handsomely produced, “freely adapted” take on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel – one that was derided both for the casting of Demi Moore as heroine Hester Prynne and ample alterations from its source material.
