  1. Do you enjoy Trash Cinema or Cult Films? Sleazy Italian Gialli? So bad they’re good Action flicks? Corman Rip-Offs? Sweaty Women in Prison garbage? Spanish Monster Mash-Ups? French Vampires? Drive-In Nudie musicals? Indonesian pandemonium?Arthouse on a budget? Sword and Sandal cheapies? Troma Trash? Euro Erotica? Full Moon rubbish? Chop Socky Kung Fu? Oh sure, you could post about it in the What’s The Last Film You Watched (Older Films) thread. But they won’t understand you there. They won’t embrace your illogical appreciation for Cinema of the Weird. I thought it might be nice to have a thread for the underdogs. The films that usually don’t start with much, but swing for the fences with gusto. Most of these types of films lean into genre rather than drama. Let’s watch and discuss bona fide Cult Classics and unknown gems lost to time. You won’t be judged for liking a film by Fulci, Rollin, Naschy, Meyer, Lenzi, Brass, or Martino or any other nameless Schlock. Anyone else want to celebrate the Cinema Absurd and appreciate the beautiful art of the Weird around the World? So What’s the Last Cult Exploitation Trash B-Movie You Watched?
  2. Tom Holkenborg (Junkie XL) to score ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ movie. Okay, now this is epic.
  3. This morning I listened to a 2014 recording by the BBC Concert Orchestra on Spotify. I don't think it correspond to a physical album. The playing is good, but it contains a way too much echo for me, but the thing is they recorded the End Titles from The Empire Strikes Back. Well, I think it's worth of mention. Except the Gerhardt version, I don't remember any other re-recording of this piece. Please feel free to share your own discoveries!
  4. I recently purchased my first Criterion Collection title (The Dr. Strangelove Blu-ray digipak). Awesome transfer, and the cover and supplemental material are great as well. Any recommendations for the best first titles a new collector should pick up? Your personal favorites?
  5. What is your favorite animated film? Whether it be traditionally animated, computer generated, or stop motion, I feel the medium of animation isn’t discussed much around here and I’d like to here your thoughts on it.
  6. Since the Oscars are soon coming up, I thought I'd go ahead and make this thread for discussion purposes. Oscars 2019: The Academy announces shortlist for ‘Best Visual Effects’. The shortlist includes: Ant-Man and the Wasp Avengers: Infinity War Black Panther Christopher Robin First Man Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Mary Poppins Returns Ready Player One Solo: A Star Wars Story Welcome to Marwen
  7. Which iconic 80s adventure film and score do you prefer; Spielberg/Williams' Raiders of the Lost Ark or Zemekis/Silvestri's Back to the Future?
  8. Which innovative sci-fi thriller and score do you prefer; the Wachowskis/Davis' The Matrix, or Nolan/Zimmer's Inception?
  9. 'Jurassic Park,' 'The Shining,' 'Brokeback Mountain', and 'Rebecca' Enter the National Film Registry, Deeming them Culturally, Historically or Aesthetically Significant.
  10. Thought this would make for a fun discussion, so here goes. What are some movie antagonists from this century that you believe will be remembered as some of cinema's most memorable, iconic villains years from now? Here's my top three. Anton Chigurh: No Country for Old Men (2007) Daniel Plainview: There Will Be Blood (2007) Gollum: The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-2003)
  11. Seeing as there has not been an official thread created for this film yet, I thought I'd be the one to do the honors. "The Incredibles 2 Teaser Trailer to Premiere With Coco"
  12. Which Spielberg monster movie (and respective score) do you prefer; Jaws or Jurassic Park? On a technical level, Jurassic Park handily beats the somewhat dated effects in Jaws, but so great is the power of the storytelling in Jaws that I personally find the later to be much more compelling. The suspense is crafted brilliantly. Every line of dialogue is pure gold. The characters are likable and well-written. The film has easily one of the greatest monologues in cinema history (Quint's story of the U.S.S Indianapolis). It succeeds not only as an entertaining popcorn flick, but also as a rich human drama and a chilling mortality tale. There's no doubt in my mind that Jaws is the superior film, by far. Williams' score for Jurassic Park is truly great and memorable, but Jaws just barely edges it out, in my opinion.
  13. So...I've never been a great fan of Jerry Goldsmith, but I think it's more out of a lack of familiarity than any perceived defect in his work. I'm also interested in experiencing for myself how his technique and approach differs from Williams. I think my lack of familiarity probably stems from the fact that he scored so many bad movies, or at least has that stigma. So I want to know--what are some of the best films that he worked on? Or films that would have been mediocre without his score? For a frame of reference, I've seen Patton and Planet of the Apes and liked them both (films and scores).
  14. For the past few months, I've been writing and managing my own personal blog about film music, called THE HOLLYWOOD SOUND. I started it back in July, and I've added to it since then. As a result of this blog, I've been writing CD reviews for FSM Online as well. I just wanted to let you all know about it, and to invite you all to read it: http://thehollywoodsound.blogspot.com Thanks everyone.
