Film Score Friday 9/13/19
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 9/12/2019 - 9:00 PM
La-La Land has announced a historic upcoming CD release -- the original score tracks from one of the most important and influential film scores of all time, Franz Waxman's groundbreaking BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN. It will first go on sale at a screening of the film on October 13 at the Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival in Tarrytown, NY, which will include a Q&A featuring the composer's son, John Waxman, and soundtrack producer/restorer Mike Matessino. The disc will be available from the label's website at a later date.

This week the label has two new releases -- an expanded, two-disc release of Danny Elfman's thrilling score for Brian DePalma's 1996 franchise-starter MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, featuring the original soundtrack release sequencing on Disc One and the score as heard in the film on Disc Two (plus alternates); and Harry Manfredini's score for what is arguably the best of the Jason Voorhees franchise, FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI: JASON LIVES (featuring the same cues as on the label's Friday the 13th boxed set).


The latest re-recording from Tadlow, due in late October, features the complete scores for two groundbreaking horror films from England's Hammer Film Productions, THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN and HORROR OF DRACULA, with Nic Raine conducting the music of Oscar winner* James Bernard.

*(yes, I know, Bernard won his Oscar for co-writing the story to Seven Days to Noon, not for his music. Still, that's one more Oscar than you or I have, bub).

Aisle Seat 9-10: 22nd Anniversary Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 9/9/2019 - 9:00 PM
Boasting an all-new “Final Cut” as well as director Francis Ford Coppola’s prior theatrical and “Redux” versions, Lionsgate’s truly spectacular 4K UHD/Blu-Ray edition of APOCALYPSE NOW (***½, 147/183/202 mins., 1979, R) is unquestionably the year’s most impressive home video catalog release to date. Coppola’s troubled yet intermittently brilliant, surreal film has never looked or sounded as dazzling as it does here, thanks to a UHD format release that marks another technological upgrade for Coppola and cinematographer Vittorio Storaro’s sumptuous widescreen images.
