Aisle Seat 6-15: Indiana Jones, Godzilla & Kong on 4K UHD
Posted By: Andy Dursin 6/14/2021 - 10:00 PM
Freshly remastered in its most spectacular presentation yet on home video, INDIANA JONES: 4-MOVIE COLLECTION (Paramount) is unquestionably going to rank as one of the essential format purchases for 4K UHD owners. Paramount’s five-disc set – configured similarly as its 2012 Blu-Ray predecessor – includes the UHD, Dolby Vision-enhanced debuts of “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” on UHD with a fourth disc of extras and a fifth (“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”) that most fans likely feel is best left as a beverage coaster. It’s an eagerly awaited set that delivers the goods on every level: the Dolby Vision transfers offer the same crispness of Paramount’s Blu-Ray releases with the addition of finely-tuned HDR and a slightly cooler color tone, while the Dolby Atmos audio mixes are even more immersive than the Ben Burtt-mastered tracks from prior editions.

Next week Intrada plans to release a CD about which, given my obsessions with both Jerry Goldsmith and unused scores, I can only say OMFG!!!!. For those who don't mind soundtrack CD release spoilers, go to this Message Board thread.


The latest CD from Quartet is a remastered (and composer-approved) release of one of John Williams' most off-beat scores, his Oscar-nominated music for Robert Altman's surreal 1972 psychological thriller IMAGES, starring Susannah York and the late, great Rene Auberjonois. 


Music Box has announced three new CD releases: an expanded version of Maurice Jarre's score for the 1964 WWII drama WEEK-END A ZUYDCOOTE (released in the U.S as Weekend at Dunkirk); a CD featuring music from three Philippe Sarde scores, ALLONS Z'ENFANTS (1981), L'HONNEUR D'UN CAPITAINE (A Captain's Honor, 1982) and LA MAISON ASSASSINEE (The Murdered House, 1988); and a disc featuring three scores composed by Jean-Claude Vannier, LES CHEMINS DE KATMANDOU, PARIS N'EXISTE PAS (both composed with Serge Gainsbourg) and LA BETE NOIRE.


Varese Sarabande is expected to announce two new limited edition CD Club releases today.

Film Score Friday 6/4/21
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 6/3/2021 - 10:00 PM

The latest CD from Intrada is Jerry Goldsmith's score for SHAMUS. The 1973 mystery from director Buzz Kulik (Warning Shot, TV's Babe) starred Burt Reynolds (shortly after Deliverance and his Cosmopolitan centerfold finally made him a full-fledged movie star) as a low-rent NY private eye, with Dyan Cannon as his love interest. A minor star vehicle with a lot of personality, Shamus benefits from Goldsmith's funky, low-key score, featuring his usual inventive sounds and exciting action music, and presented here in its entirety and for the first time. The liner notes, discussing the film's production history, were written by me.


La-La Land has announced their slate of releases for this month.

Next week they will release a new edition of Jerry Goldsmith's lively score for the 1980 Casablanca homage CABOBLANCO, starring the Bogart and Bergman of the late 1970s, Charles Bronson and Dominique Sanda, and a 40th anniversary edition (that makes me feel really old) of Alex North's Oscar-nominated score for DRAGONSLAYER.

On June 22 they will release an expanded version of John Wiliams' score for Steven Spielberg's 1989 romantic fantasy ALWAYS, and will re-release their three-disc edition of what I personally feel is the greatest stand-alone score of the 21st century so far, Williams' A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

Aisle Seat 6-1: Revisiting EXPLORERS
Posted By: Andy Dursin 5/31/2021 - 10:00 PM
The summer of ’85 was a good time to be growing up and going to the movies. “Back to the Future” and “Cocoon” were two of the season’s biggest genre hits, and are just a couple of the many films from that year that are still entertaining viewers decades later (not to mention “Lifeforce,” of course!). Not every film released that summer was a hit, though, as the summer of ’85 had its share of box-office disappointments – one of them was Joe Dante’s EXPLORERS (106 mins., PG; Paramount), which was the genre auteur's highly awaited follow-up tpo his smash hit "Gremlins" from the preceding year.
