While the 85th Annual Academy Awards was short of surprises (or for that matter an truly engaging telecast), it did have Billy Crystal returning as host for the ninth time). Although he played it safe, and came dangerously close to crossing the line at others, he still provided a polished sheen that kept the proceedings afloat. Should he have been funnier? Probably. Was he better than James Franco and Anne Hathaway last year? Definitely, yes. However, the Oscars are really about the winners, so without further ado, here is the master list of who got what including the slam dunk …Read On »

CD Review: MAN TO MAN soundtrack

MAN TO MAN soundtrack | ©2011 Movie Score Media

Patrick Doyle’s longtime association with French filmmaker Regis Wargnier on such sometimes exotic, history-based epics as INDOCHINE and EAST-WEST has brought out many of the composer’s most impressively lush works. Traveling to Africa to bring two pygmy tribespeople back to “civilized” Scotland results in a culture clash of symphonic nobility and age-old ethnic percussion for this 2005 score. But more than some soundtrack relic, the soaring MAN TO MAN serves as a hugely impressive warm-up to Doyle’s far-more violent musical conflict between barbaric civilization and those it torments in RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Doyle’s talent for hearing …Read On »

CD Review: ANSWERS TO NOTHING soundtrack

ANSWERS TO NOTHING soundtrack | ©2012 Lakeshore Records

In such omnibus films as FRIENDS WITH MONEY, THE GYMNAST and KING OF KONG, Craig Richey’s proven he has a subtle, often dream-like way of musically getting into characters’ conflicted thoughts. It’s a talent that serves him well in the CRASH-like stories that make up ANSWERS TO NOTHING. Richey hears an alternative sound for acoustical instruments, piano and troubled samples, conveying a tone of both understanding and apprehension at the missing person’s case that links the film’s disparate characters. Richey’s work is subtly mesmerizing, his mellow groove powerfully contrasting with the rock overload of Nico Vega. Her raw songs scream …Read On »

CD Review: THE SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA soundtrack

THE SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA soundtrack | ©2011 Buysoundtrax Records

Future KOJAK composer John Cacavas made a notable horror scoring debut aboard 1972’s HORROR EXPRESS, a classic thrill ride that combined mod rock stylings with an orchestral sensibility as old as a fire-eyed Siberian missing link. Cacavas applied an even groovier approach the next year to one of history’s greatest fiends, hearing him in service to an even more evil master as The Count tries to wipe out humanity with the bubonic plague. These SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA would also turn out to be the swan song for Christopher Lee playing the Count at Hammer films, though his nemesis Peter …Read On »

CD Review: ANIMALS UNITED soundtrack

ANIMALS UNITED soundtrack | ©2011 Perseverance Records

If there’s a musical king of the funny animal jungle, then David Newman can hold the title with the likes of ICE AGE, the SQUEAKQUEL to ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS, two SCOOBY DOO flicks and DR. DOOLITTLE among the various CG and live-action creatures that have opened their mouths for a hip joke. That original language is German in KONFERENZ DER TIERE or ANIMALS UNITED as it’s known over here. But no matter if the dubbing’s in Deutsch or English, the wonderfully antic voice of Newman’s comedy music is loud and clear. While he’s capable of such relaxed scores as …Read On »

CD Review: HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS: LIMITED EXPANDED EDITION

HALLOWEEN IV soundtrack | ©2011 Ahi Records

Some serial killers need a right hand knife, especially when they also happen to be the director and composer. Such was the assistance John Carpenter required after not only making HALLOWEEN. but also creating the most notorious, and toe-tapping theme in horror score history. That’s how sound designer-turned-composer Alan Howarth was brought into the series with HALLOWEEN 2 and given the “in association” credit for his teaming with Carpenter. Skillfully abetting that film’s far more visceral shocks with eerie atmospheres and relentless rhythms, the collaborators next turned to computer-generated horror for the series SEASON OF THE WITCH. However, HALLOWEEN‘s most …Read On »

CD Review: UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING soundtrack

UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING soundtrack | ©2012 Lakeshore Records

It’s time again to defrost ninja vampire warrior Selene from deep sequel freeze. And though Marco Beltrami gave her a more traditional orchestral horror score approach the last time out in UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION, it’s certainly cool to welcome the series’ original composer Paul Haslinger back into the ongoing Lycan-bloodsucker feud, which gets joined by humans hell-bent on wiping both clans out for Selene’s future AWAKENING. Going for a creepily ambient approach that reflected his Tangerine Dream roots in the first UNDERWORLD score, and then bringing an epic scope to the series’ impressive historical prequel RISE OF THE LYCANS, Haslinger goes …Read On »
