Film Score Friday 3/24/23
Posted By Scott Bettencourt 3/23/2023 - 10:00 PM
Intrada has announced two new score CDs - John Debney's score for the 2023 comedy 80 FOR BRADY, starring acting legends Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field; and an expanded, two-disc edition of James Newton Howard's score for the charming, underrated, 2003 live action remake of PETER PAN.

The latest releases from Quartet are the music from the drama ALLELUJAH, based on the play by Alan Bennett and scored by his longime collaborator, five-time Oscar nominee George Fenton; and the score for the romantic drama L'ENVOL (aka Scarlet), by Oscar winner Gabriel Yared.

The latest releases from Music Box are a disc featuring music from four scores composed by Oscar nominee Philippe Sarde -- L'homme aux yeux d'argent (1985), Cours prive (1986), Une etrange affaire (1981) - all directed by Pierre Granier-Deferre - and Que les gros salaries levent le doigt! (1982), directed by Granier-Deferre's son Denys; and two Michel Legrand scores for 1972 films starring French legend Annie Girardot - LES FEUX DE LA CHANDELEUR (Hearth Fires) and LA VIEILLE FILLE (The Old Maid).

Kronos has announced three new releases - THE BIG CAPER from 1957, scored by B-movie great Albert Glasser; the 1959 crime drama COUNTERPLOT, scored by the team of Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter; and THE MUSIC OF GUNTHUER KAUER, featuring the composer's scores for Monstrosity (1963) and Cape Canaveral Monsters (1960), the latter scored with Douglas M. Lackey

This year's winners in the Oscars music categories were Volker Bertelmann for his Original Score for ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, and Chandrabose and M.M. Keeravani for their Original Song "Naatu Naatu" from RRR.

This is the first year in Oscar history where both of the music awards went to foreign language films. Past foreign language score winners are The Postman (Il Postino) (Luis Bacalov), Life Is Beautiful (Nicola Piovani) and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Tan Dun). The only previous winning song from a foreign language film is "Al Otro Lado Del Rio" from The Motorcycle Diaries; "Jai Ho" from Slumdog Millionaire is in Hindi, Urdu and Punujabi, but the film itself is in English.

Aisle Seat 3-14: March Madness Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 3/13/2023 - 10:00 PM
The “Golden Age” of Italian director Dario Argento has become well represented on 4K UHD over the last couple of years thanks to the collective efforts of labels like Arrow and Synapse Films. The latter’s superlative edition of his classic “Suspiria” remains one of the top catalog discs in the UHD format, and this month brings fans a newly restored release of a later Argento title that’s offbeat even by the director’s standards: PHENOMENA (116/110/83 mins., 1985; Synapse), which was released in the mid ’80s by New Line in a butchered form as “Creepers.”

Aisle Seat 2-28: Marathon Man 4K, New Kino Lorber Discs
Posted By Andy Dursin 2/27/2023 - 10:00 PM
One of the most exciting mid ‘70s thrillers, the all-star Robert Evans production of William Goldman’s novel MARATHON MAN (125 mins., 1976, R) became a box-office hit in the Fall of ‘76 and remains a suspenseful, superbly helmed ride from director John Schlesinger. One of many classics hitting 4K UHD this year, Kino Lorber’s new 4K scan of the Original Camera Negative results in a marvelous transfer with Dolby Vision HDR, adding fresh layers to Conrad Hall’s cinematography, including enhanced depth and shading absent from previous home video releases, even Paramount’s earlier Blu-Ray.
