    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Saw How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World last weekend. Thought it was quite good. My review. https://dailyuv.com/975879

    The Silence of the Lambs vs. Seven

    In terms of score, I prefer Silence of The Lambs, but neither are scores that I exactly revisit over and over again. They're effectively in the film, but less so on CD for me. I'm a fan of both films, and think they're excellent serial killer thrillers, but there's something terrific about the way The Silence of The Lambs handles its characters, and even the violence. It all feels so fleshed out, and the dialogue is quite rich. Makes the film even more rewarding to revisit. Speaking of which, Ted Levine doesn't get enough love as Buffalo Bill, he plays such a great psycho.

    R.I.P. Andre Previn - dies at 89

    If the only thing he ever wrote was the main title to Dead Ringer, he'd still be a fantastic composer. RIP.

    Planes, Trains & Automobiles is such a perfect comedy, and one of my favorite flicks. Heartwarming, funny, and yet most of all doesn't forget to make the audience feel for its character (John Candy was Oscar worthy IMO, I miss that guy). I enjoy some of his other films, but this is no doubt Hughes' finest film as a director. Not to mention, it's pretty much the only great thanksgiving film I can think of.

    In the Book it's based off, the title was meant to be a reference to the song "Beale Street Blues", so more of a figurative reference then anything.

    RIP Nick Redman

    Dammit, had no idea he was even that ill. He was a huge influence in score releases, especially some of my absolute favorites. RIP and respect to Nick!

    Saw Vice over the weekend. Strange film narrative-wise, but Bale's performance was, wow, quite good. My review. https://dailyuv.com/973035

    Saw Aquaman and Mary Poppins Returns over the holiday season. Enjoyed both, though Poppins was more delightful. My reviews. https://dailyuv.com/972351 https://dailyuv.com/972441
  11. Some of my favorites. My Best Friend's Wedding - James Newton Howard Groundhog Day - George Fenton Love Actually - Craig Armstrong Breakfast At Tiffany's - Henry Mancini Only You - Rachel Portman Joe Versus The Volcano - George Delerue Soapdish - Alan Silvestri Four Weddings and a Funeral - Richard Rodney Bennett Not my personal preference of film music, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that I had a soft spot for that swelling type of mushy romantic music with sometimes guitars playing in the background.

    New podcast with yours truly: THE GOLDSMITH ODYSSEY

    Just listened to it. Interesting score and discussion. I can't say I've ever heard of Studs Lonigan, and had no idea it was considered a top novel at one point. In fact I didn't even know the title until I explored Goldsmith's IMDb filmography years ago. Way way way before my time. As for the score itself, it sounds really good, but based off first impressions it probably wouldn't be considered top tier Goldsmith for me. I do see that even early on in his career he was exploring multiple different styles in a film. I think my favorite bit out of the music that I heard, was the "jauntier" version of the main title, which definitely reminds me of a western especially with that harmonic. Keep up the good work guys.
