CD Reviews: THE BLUE MAX: THE LIMITED EDITION and THE LIST OF ADRIAN MESSENGER soundtracks

THE BLUE MAX: THE LIMITED EDITION soundtrack | ©2014 La La Land Records

Jerry Goldsmith came roaring out of the gate in the mid-60s to impress Hollywood with his seemingly boundless talent to play any number of genres. And two of his best scores from this furiously creative period couldn’t be more apart, or more in demand from Goldsmith collectors than 1966s THE BLUE MAX and 1963s THE LIST OF ADRIAN MESSENGER, one a soaringly romantic exercise in the nobility of battle, and the other a playfully insane game of all-star masquerading murder suspects that at last get the releases they’ve long-deserved on special editions from La La Land and Varese Sarabande Records. …Read On »

Interview: Elias Koteas on CHICAGO P.D. Season 1

Elias Koteas in CHICAGO P.D. - Season 1 | ©2014 NBC/Paul Drinkwater

NBC’s CHICAGO FIRE was such a hit of the 2012-2013 season that it took barely a year for it to launch a spin-off, CHICAGO P.D., Wednesday nights at 10 PM. The two series share characters and authentic Chicago locations, as well as executive producer Dick Wolf. On CHICAGO P.D., Elias Koteas plays undercover detective Alvin Olinsky, a master of blending into the background. Koteas, a native of Montreal, studied acting in New York. He had an early role as a skinhead in John Hughes’ SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL. Since then, he’s been in a number of notable feature films including …Read On »

CD Review: SECRET SHARER soundtrack

SECRET SHARER soundtrack | ©2014 2M1 Records

A Polish sea captain finds himself way underwater in desire, and danger when he takes on an adrift woman in the South China Sea for this modernization of Joseph Conrad’s short 1910 story. But perhaps the classiest passenger on board this otherwise rusting ship is English composer Guy Farley (MODIGLIANI), who gives beautiful, moody elegance to this unlikely, and potentially lethal romance between burned-out hero and his potentially lethal catch. A musician definitely worthy of discovery on this end of the pond, Farley has impressed in both thrillers (THE FLOCK) and romance (CASHBACK). Now SECRET SHARER showcases both styles with …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Benjamin Stockham puts the boy in ABOUT A BOY

Benjamin Stockham in ABOUT A BOY - Season 1 | ©2014 NBC/Chris Haston

Actor Benjamin Stockham is only thirteen years old, but he’s been acting since he was five. Not only is he a film (QUARANTINE, SIMON SAYS) and television (1600 PENN, SONS OF TUCSON) veteran, he’s also remarkably quick with ad-libbed one-liners. At a Q&A panel with the Television Critics Association for NBC’s new series ABOUT A BOY, adapted for television by Jason Katims from Nick Hornsby’s novel, Stockham is seated with Katims and cast mates Minnie Driver, David Walton and Al Madrigal. When someone says to Stockham, “You’re either an exceptional young actor or you’re just like your character. Which is …Read On »

CD Review: POMPEII soundtrack

POMPEII soundtrack | ©2014 Milan Records

Paul W.S. Anderson is popcorn personified when it comes to such muscular entertainments as EVENT HORIZON, SOLDIER, RESIDENT EVIL and DEATH RACE getting powerful scores by the likes of Michael Kamen, Joel McNeely and Paul Haslinger that have ranged from heroic strings to terrifying electronica and twisted metal. But while his latest work might have turned to ash at the box office, POMPEII stands for me as Anderson’s most ambitious, and purely enjoyable old-school film, a blazing mash up of GLADIATOR and WHEN TIME RAN OUT that sought to achieve an epic dramatic quality amidst its historical disaster film arena. …Read On »

CD Review: ELMER BERNSTEIN: THE AVA COLLECTION soundtrack

ELMER BERNSTEIN: THE AVA COLLECTION soundtrack | ©2014 Intrada Records

Though taken for granted by today’s collectors, being able to get the actual, original tracks for a film score has only been a relatively recent development. What most fans received for decades were performances done after the fact by the likes of Henry Mancini, Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams, who took the most melodically accessible tracks from a given film, then lushly arranged them for albums that barely topped the half hour mark. Before Elmer Bernstein specifically marketed these types of re-performances specifically for the soundtrack appreciator market with his “Film Music Collection” label (whose Film Score Monthly box set …Read On »
