CD Review: POLLYANA soundtrack

Eleanor H. Porter’s adorable, eternally optimistic sprite has been showing up on big and small screens since 1920, most popularly in Haley Mills’ effervescent form via Disney in 1960, and most recently in 2003 on the U.K.’s ITV. With the character’s roots transported from New England to England proper, it’s only right that a classically-minded composer like Christopher Gunning be giving the musical job of making the sun shine as bright as the little girl’s smile (never mind that he impressively got his start on such bloodthirsty scores as GOODBYE GEMINI and HANDS OF THE RIPPER). Thankfully, Gunning knows how …Read On »

OUTLANDER: Sam Heughan discusses the season finale – exclusive interview

Sam Heughan in OUTLANDER - Season 1 | ©2015 Starz

Starz’s series OUTLANDER, adapted by executive producer Ronald D. Moore from Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling novels, has its first-season finale Saturday, May 30 at 9 PM. The success of OUTLANDER has been such that renewal for a second season was assured pretty much by the time it premiered. The season finale promises to be tense, with time-traveling WWII British Army nurse Claire, played by Caitriona Balfe, still in eighteenth-century Scotland, trying to rescue her Highlander husband Jamie, portrayed by Sam Heughan. Jamie is the prisoner of English garrison commander “Black Jack” Randall (Tobias Menzies), a sadist who intends to hang his …Read On »

CD Review: KING SOLOMON’S MINES (1,000 edition) soundtrack

KING SOLOMON'S MINES soundtrack | ©2014 Quartet Records

They were musical equals in my opinion. Yet for the better part of the careers of John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith, it always seemed that the latter was chasing the coattails of the first when it came to picture quality. For if John got Irwin Allen’s THE TOWERING INFERNO, then Jerry received that producers’ dog called THE SWARM. While John flew with SUPERMAN, Jerry remained earthbound in the enjoyably silly company of SUPERGIRL. But perhaps no second-cousin removed picture that Goldsmith got to score was a ludicrously close to aping a way better picture than when it came to comparing …Read On »

Movie Review: ALOHA

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin, Bill Camp, Jaeden Lieberher, Danielle Rose Russell, Dennis “Bumpy” Kanahele Writer: Cameron Crowe Director: Cameron Crowe Distributor: Columbia Pictures/Sony Release Date: May 29, 2015 There are some really wonderful things in writer/director Cameron Crowe’s ALOHA that are balanced out by some things that are mundane or even baffling (why, if it is important to the story that a character named Allison Ng is one-quarter Hawaiian, cast an actress who looks four-quarters Nordic? If you want to use her, great, just say she grew …Read On »

CD Review: EX-MACHINA soundtrack

EX-MACHINA soundtrack | ©2015 Back Lot Music

28 DAYS LATER and SUNSHINE writer Alex Garland makes a gradually impressive directing debut in front of the lens with this beautifully appointed, but at-first sterile adult sci-fi picture that gradually builds to end on a memorable high note. And it’s exactly the film’s overwhelming, creepy blankness that co-composers Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury are effectively playing to. It’s an interesting, and impressive dynamic, with Barrow essentially making his scoring debut here after writing tunes that have appeared in such films as TANK GIRL, THE CRAFT and LORD OF WAR, while Salisbury is the more seasoned component with his copious …Read On »

CD Review: OLD BOYFRIENDS soundtrack

OLD BOYFRIENDS soundtrack | ©2015 Intrada Records

In one of the more ironic scoring assignments, David Shire was put in the position of scoring his then-wife Talia as a character who sorts her romantic love life out on screen, here playing a psychiatrist who flees her husband, bounding about the county to do some serious self-therapy with a rogues gallery of exes that include the acting likes of Richard Jordan, Keith Carradine and even John Belushi. With the actress capitalizing on her ROCKY role as Adrian to show she had far more range in this and her other star vehicle WINDOWS, one might expect a somewhat treacly …Read On »

CD Review: AFTER THE FALL soundtrack

AFTER THE FALL soundtrack | ©2014 Lakeshore Records

Marc Streitenfeld has provided muted, morally ambiguous scores before to oil workers facing off against killer wolves in THE GREY and a professional hitman wanting his pay in KILLING THEM SOFTLY, scores filled with truly interesting “ambiences” and unexpected instrumentation. But perhaps none of Streitenfeld’s experimentally minded scores of this nature hits more weirdly, or more effectively at home than AFTER THE FALL, wherein Wes Bentley’s suburban dad truly goes off the criminal rails to avoid falling into poverty after his firing. Perhaps one way to describe Streitenfeld’s unique work at its most effective here is to imagine Carl Orff …Read On »
