A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD soundtrack | ©2013 Sony Music

If Marco Beltrami’s ever-growing resume of work makes him one of the hardest working composers in score business, then consider Buck Sanders as the session man who’s made the prolific number of IMDB entries possible (they currently have their work on display in the recent releases A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD and WARM BODIES).

Interview: Atli Örvarsson ain’t scoring no HANSEL AND GRETEL fairy tale

HANSEL AND GRETEL WITCH HUNTERS soundtrack | ©2013 La La Land Records

More than ever, Hollywood is behaving like some hyperactive, post-hip kid tapping a pencil in history class or being put to bedtime, envisioning those usually boring world changers and fairy tale cherubs as pumped-up, sword-swinging, axe-hacking and shotgun-toting avengers who are anything but the stuff of their parents’ musty books.

Carroll’s Victorian England. Now it’s time …Read On »
