    And her last name is pronounced as 'Vice.' 😳

    The Howling It's clever but not that scary. Rather boring, actually. The sequel was actually more entertaining.

    I wasn't even aware of them until 3-4 years ago, lol.

    Hollywood '95 It still sounds great. The Horner and Goldsmith suites (particularly "Casper's Lullaby" and First Knight's "End Credits") feel like the original composers were at the podium, and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra's performance is on point. I'm surprised that ensemble hasn't been used more often in recent years, their playing is comparable to the L.A. and London session players.

    The Voice of the Turtle Who would've thought Ronald Reagan was a better actor than a hideously overrated President. It's a shame most of his filmography consisted of either chick flicks or World War II propaganda films, but this is a pleasantly entertaining screwball romantic comedy. Eve Arden and Eleanor Parker are absolutely delightful.

    It's too good to be a Netflix original. I imagine if it were to be made today, it would be produced by Alcon and released by Warner Brothers, i.e. Blade Runner 2049. Or released through a smaller label like Bleeker, IFC Films or Lionsgate.

    Gattaca I forgot how good this was, but also how much of a slow burn it was. Had it been released today, it wouldn't have been released through a major studio like Sony. There's a lot of thematic richness and attention to detail, and it still feels relevant even today. I know Ethan Hawke is better known for his collaborations with Richard Linklater, but this is one of his best leading roles for a major studio film. Michael Nyman's score is beautiful but incredibly repetitive.
  8. RBG Whether your political views lean conservative, liberal, or somewhere in between -- this documentary shows a very nuanced and funny portrait of judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I appreciated that they highlighted her friendship with the late conservative judge Antonin Scalia in addition to her earlier work against sex-based discrimination.
  9. According to an interview with editor Martin Walsh, he talked about how Patty used Zimmer's music as a temp track in the score (which Rupert Gregson-Williams obviously followed). Or maybe Zimmer saw Wonder Woman and went, "Damn, I passed on this?" If that was the case, Patty had no problem nabbing him for the sequel. Personally, I would be happier if Zimmer kept his word on never scoring comic book movies again.

    RIP Aretha Franklin

    RIP. Her duet with the Eurythmics was my personal favorite.

    X-Men - Michael Kamen The majority of the score is hit-and-miss for me, but "Logan Holds Rogue" is always a treat. Just beautiful and haunting.

    First time I've listened to Goldsmith's Supergirl theme. Absolutely wonderful! Do I listen to the full score or is this the main highlight?

    The Grudge 2 - Christopher Young The Journey of Natty Gann - James Horner
  14. Three Identical Strangers It's an absorbing documentary, and that truth is stranger than fiction (and just as heartbreaking). At first, it seems like a happy instance of reunification but as the brothers, their family, and friends reveal -- much more was going on behind their separation. You'd never look at an adoption agency the same way again, and just as infuriating as the Magdalene laundries debacle in Ireland.

    The Whale - Debbie Wiseman Silva Screen didn't issue a soundtrack release for the TV movie, but that's OK. The main theme encompasses the best bits. Haunted - Debbie Wiseman The album is repetitive and the ensemble she used here sounds small. The suite in her album is, again, better due to the larger orchestra and distilling all the best parts into a nice meaty suite.
