CD Review: TITANIC soundtrack (2CD Anniversary Edition)

TITANIC soundtrack | ©2012 Sony Classical

“My Heart Will Go On,” and on and on and on with the popularity of the most waterlogged movie to win Best Picture, especially for the concurrent 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking and the 15th years since the movie’s release. So what better time to make hay of all things musically TITANIC than with multiple releases of its Oscar-winning score and song? While a four-disc soundtrack set offers copious source music and extra instrumentals, chances are TITANIC non-fanatics will be more than sated with this 2CD anniversary edition, which contains the lion’s share of Horner’s score, and, of course, …Read On »

CD Review: GALAXY QUEST soundtrack (3,000 edition)

GALAXY QUEST soundtrack | ©2012 La La Land Records

If there was ever a geek desert island movie, and score, then it would be 1999’s GALAXY QUEST. Beyond its brilliant high-concept of throwing Classic Trek’s “ has-been actors into a real outer space adventure, what made the movie work was just how much love it really had for Kirk and company- a determination to make the premise anything but a shabbily extended SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE skit. For with just a few less degrees of satire, one could actually, almost buy these actors being on a spiffed-up Enterprise bridge, fighting Gorn to David Newman’s trumpeting theme for a cult TV …Read On »

Watching them in three big lumps (while cool), takes some of the …Read On »

In what has become one of the most boring AMERICAN IDOL competitions since Lee Dewyze and Crystal Bowersox battled it out on Season 9, the reality show competition whittled down the contestants from three to two with Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez. That meant the powerhouse singer with the golden Gospel voice Joshua Ledet was eliminated. Jennifer Lopez was in tears as Ledet sang his swan song, “It’s A Man’s, Man’s World” and brought his mom up on stage. Meanwhile, Phillips and Sanchez breathed a sigh of relief going into next week which, not surprising, will see Phillips take the …Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson, Rihanna, Jesse Plemons, Gregory D. Gadson Writers: Erich Hoeber & Jon Hoeber, based on the Hasbro game Director: Peter Berg Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: May 18, 2012 There is nothing wrong in basing a movie on a board game or a toy, or even an amusement park ride (for example, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN). For one thing, it’s been done many times before by now, so there’s no reason to attack BATTLESHIP to be the latest in this line. There is something a little startling in BATTLESHIP’s physical …Read On »
