Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd are DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 14 champs! Wow! OMG! You’re kidding, right? Never before have I been so surprised about the winner of DWTS than I was tonight.

I just had my money on William Levy & Cheryl Burke to take it all. I would …Read On »

CD Review: BEN-HUR soundtrack

BEN-HUR soundtrack | ©2012 Film Score Monthly

If the granite-jawed manliness of Charlton Heston made him the anointed prince of Hollywood widescreen pictures with THE BIG COUNTRY, 55 DAYS AT PEKING and THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY, then it was Miklos Rozsa’s ability to fill the screen with equally rapturous melody that turned him into epic court composer of KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE, KING OF KINGS and SODOM AND GOMORRAH. And while Heston and Rozsa would get in the Spanish saddle together for the mighty EL CID nothing would match the other teaming of these two larger-than-life talents like 1959’s BEN-HUR, the eleven Oscar-winning picture (including …Read On »

RYAN MURPHY: I was out of the country shooting [EAT PRAY LOVE starring Julia Roberts] when it sort of all happened.

CD Review: THE WAR OF THE BUTTONS soundtrack

THE WAR OF THE BUTTONS soundtrack | ©2012 Music Box Records

Cute kids go to fake war again in the fourth adaptation of Louis Pergaud’s 1912 novel THE WAR OF THE BUTTONS (LA NOUVELLE GUERRE DES BOUTONS), which was first made in France in 1962 before having its non-violent action moved to the Irish countryside for a 1994 version. Then in 2011, the story traveled back to its country of origin twice, which might be some kind of record for retelling the same story. For director Christophe (LES CHOIRISTES) Barratier’s version, Gallic composer Philippe Rombi takes up the musical charge from Jose Berghmans, Rachel Portman and Klaus Badelt with a score …Read On »

CD Review: NOWHERE TO RUN soundtrack (3,000 edition)

NOWHERE TO RUN soundtrack | ©2012 Perseverance Records

Jean-Claude Van Damme would get one of his best starring roles in this successful, if now relatively unsung 1993 film that sees his ex-con step into Shane-like shoes (via motorcycle), taking on the evil mining barons out to murderously toss out attractive homesteader Rosanna Arquette and her kids. RUN‘s impressively subdued and intelligent handling can be squarely credited to director Robert Harmon, who wisely reteamed here with his HITCHER composer Mark Isham. Where the composer had handled that picture’s visceral atmosphere with ethereal, electronic tones, NOWHERE TO RUN saw Isham significantly beef up his approach with the weight of a …Read On »
