Aisle Seat 8-2: Imprint’s Latest, Mill Creek July Titles
Posted By Andy Dursin 8/1/2022 - 10:00 PM
Imprint’s latest releases include two ’60s seafaring adventures along with a Biblical epic more “serious” than Saturday Matinee in its overall tone. Each limited-edition Blu-Ray marks its respective picture’s premiere HD release, though some of the source elements vary in terms of quality. The films themselves, though, each come heartily recommended, offering a diversity of entertainment for movie buffs.

Posted By Andy Dursin 7/18/2022 - 10:00 PM
Kino Lorber released a dynamite 4K UHD of “In The Heat of the Night” back in April that also included both of the Sidney Poitier “Mister Tibbs” sequels on a Blu-Ray platter. Those sequels – previously available from the label in separate, standalone format releases – have been re-issued this month in a double-feature Blu-Ray reprising that disc from the UHD combo platter.

Aisle Seat 7-12: Vinegar Syndrome Wrap
Posted By Andy Dursin 7/11/2022 - 10:00 PM
The purveyors of the offbeat and eccentric, sometimes gloriously weird and occasionally wild – Vinegar Syndrome – have a full run of eclectic new titles in-store for Blu-Ray and UHD owners this summer. They’re highlighted by a dynamic three-disc UHD/Blu-Ray package of THRILLER “A Cruel Picture” (108 mins., 1973), which (like the other titles covered below) can now be ordered through Vinegar Syndrome’s site and goes “retail” at the end of this month. I previously reviewed Synapse’s BD of this movie a couple of months back, but VS’ release is a far more features-packed presentation with tons of extra content and a superior transfer, making it the more complete package for fans.

Film Score Friday 7/8/22
Posted By Scott Bettencourt 7/7/2022 - 10:00 PM
La-La Land has announced their June batch of releases, which are now available to order: a two-disc edition of John Williams' popular score for the original JURASSIC PARK; an expanded two-disc edition of James Horner's score for the third Jack Ryan film, CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER; and a re-release of their expanded edition of Horner's previous Jack Ryan score, PATRIOT GAMES.


The latest release from Quartet is a remastered reissue of Jerry Fielding's score for Sam Peckinpah's BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA.


Vintage John Wiliams quote of the week, from a Films and Filming intervew by Derek Elley, in 1978:

"Early next year I may also do a project called Alien, directed by Ridley Scott."

Goldsmith's Alien is one of my all-time favorite pieces of film music, but it's fascinating to ponder how Williams might have aproached the project. At the time of the interview he was composing the score for Superman, and the article mentions that he was also set to work on Quintet and Meteor, both of which were ultimately scored by other composers (Tom Pierson and Laurence Rosenthal, respectively). It has long amused me that during that period he was shrewed enough to bail on The Sentinel, Quintet, Meteor, Inchon and Heaven's Gate, but still ended up scoring Heartbeeps and Monsignor. It's almost as if his agent told him he couldn't bail on every bad film, or else it might seem like he was cheating.
