CD Review: JOHN WICK soundtrack

JOHN WICK soundtrack | ©2014 Varese Sarabande Records

Any Russian mobster who watched THE MATRIX would know better than to mess with Keanu Reeves. Fortunately as THE EQUALIZER reboot recently proved, these enduring villains du jour don’t seem to watch a whole bunch of familiar former hit-man movies. And their latest f-up of killing a bad ass’ puppy gives DEVILS REJECTS Tyler Bates, BEYOND THE MAT‘s Joel J. Richard and an assist by Dyland Eiland (i.e. the DJ known as Castle Vania) carte blanche to get some rocking payback. Starting off with some slow-burn ambience to get across “John Wicks” retired killer street cred, Bates, Richard and Eiland …Read On »

Not that POKER NIGHT is a straight anthology; in fact, here the framing device is the main story, with a number of vignettes spicing it up and making good use of the supporting cast.

CD Review: ANONYMOUS REJECTED FILM SCORE soundtrack

ANONYMOUS REJECTED FILM SCORE soundtrack | ©2014 Taped Noise

Many composers have re-purposed scores that either were tossed because they simply were too smart for the movie they were intended for, frankly didn’t work with the picture or became the victim of studio politics that shelved the scores for spite. But whatever the reason the music didn’t see the official light of day, that doesn’t mean it isn’t worthy of release on its own, whether it’s John Corigliano turning EDGE OF DARKNESS into “Music from the Edge” (on Perseverance), Jerry Goldsmith transforming the main electronic melody from his blackballed ALIEN NATION way down to earth as the jazz love …Read On »
