Though his gloriously grandiloquent music was best known for having homicidal maniacs menace innocent women, or throwing gigantic beats onto the breach with valiant sailors, one of Bernard Herrmann’s most impressive, if least recognized scores pitted Yugoslavian partisans against the Nazi war machine for 1968’s THE BATTLE OF NERETVA. Essentially self-exiled in England by the time he landed this Yugoslavian-produced, Hollywood-style tribute to their country’s war effort, the always-defiant Herrmann went out with an bang for this type of epic movie, providing a score of fearsome, patriotic power, its themes raging with the sound of courage and sacrifice, as well …Read On »

CD Review: FRANTIC soundtrack

FRANTIC soundtrack | ©2011 Film Score Monthly

American star Harrison Ford ventured to France in 1987 for Roman Polanski’s fish-out-of-water thriller, as it would’ve been a legal drama of a whole different kind for them to team the other way around. A vital player in uniting their suspense sensibilities of Hollywood and Europe was Ennio Morricone, then riding high with his Oscar-nominated score for THE UNTOUCHABLES. That soundtrack’s edgy jazz sensibility would get an even more sinister, and strenuous work out with Ford as he navigated the mean streets of Paris in search of his kidnapped wife- with Polanski’s own young amour Emanuelle Seigner as his punk-ish …Read On »

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 »
