CD Review: BAD MILO soundtrack

BAD MILO soundtrack | ©2014 Movie Score Media

Ted Masur is an ass clown in the truest sense of the world with a memorable physical soundtrack debut that poops out his delightfully twisted score for BAD MILO about a monster that emerges from a nebbish’s butt to unleash hell on his master’s tormentors. Packed with devilish fury and eccentricity to spare, Masur’s music is a clever delight as it not only goes rampaging about in Elfman-esque fashion, but channels horror-indie energy into a uniquely comic sound that would be perfect for some Mike Judge movie down the line. There’s lunacy to spare in the off-kilter clocks of a …Read On »

CD Review: LA BUCA soundtrack

LA BUCA soundtrack | ©2014 Quartet Records

Fans of Pino Donaggio can only visualize Brian De Palma’s frequent suspense music consigliore holding up a butcher knife composed of lush orchestrations for such scores as CARRIE, BLOW OUT and BODY DOUBLE given his work that hits stateside. Undoubtedly, they’ll get a big musical shock if they hear how he’s equally adept at handling the styles of George Gershwin and Stephan Grappelli with the finesse he usually gives to Bernard Herrmann. The latter two are the jazzy partners in musical crime for this Italian comedy that finds a shady lawyer using hook and crook to reverse the record of …Read On »

And that’s a good thing considering winter finale’s need to have an impact. It’s a better thing for show such as AOS that at times seems to drag its feet on a lot of its storylines or misses the boat entirely. The first half …Read On »

CD Review: DRACULA UNTOLD soundtrack

DRACULA UNTOLD soundtrack | ©2014 +180 Records

Between the sword and sorcery that helps seat the GAME OF THRONES to the tongue-sucking plague brought on by THE STRAIN, Ramin Djawadi has been having a hell of a time giving eerily adventurous production value to genre TV. Now with DRACULA UNTOLD, Djawadi gets to unleash a truly epic supernatural score that bat wings its way to the top of his work. Vlad the Impaler gets his most emotionally vulnerable treatment a la that other not-so villainous revisionist movie MALEFICENT the horror springing from the character’s humanity. Djawadi powerfully responds by giving Dracula a memorably bold, darkly heroic theme …Read On »

Stars: David Bailey, Tiffany Bolling, Randy RobertsEdd Byrnes, Scott Brady, Diane McBain, Madeleine Sherwood, Roger Bowen, Arthur O’Connell Writer-Director: Richard L. Bare Distributor: Warner Archive Suggested Retail Price: $18.95 One of the great things about the Warner Bros. Archive Collection is the company digs up some truly obscure films to put out On Demand. Whereas the profit margin for a standard DVD or Blu-ray release would not be worth it, this formula seems to benefit interesting and bat-crap crazy films that would otherwise gather dust on the shelves. WICKED, WICKED is one of the more interesting Warner Archive releases as …Read On »

THE HERO OF COLOR CITY soundtrack | ©2014 Varese Sarabande Records

Varese Sarabande continues to diversify to different audiences, in these two cases musically appealing to the younger set. The wee ones, particularly children with a thing for crayons, should enjoy repeated listening to THE HERO OF COLOR CITY. There’s a sweet, gentle enjoyment they’ll find in the songs and score by ex Ziggy Marley drummer Angel Roché Jr and Zoë Poledouris-Roché, who helped her dad Basil cook up an especially important theme for the way-more adult CONAN THE BARBARIAN back in her younger days. Tunes like “Color the World” and “Heave Ho” have cleverly rhyming lyrics and catchy melodies perfect …Read On »
