FSCT Playlist #4 – I Am the Law!
It was yet another slow week of soundtrack listening, which mainly consisted of listening to certain scores over and over again for reviews (hopefully) later on. Thankfully, the week was full of wonderful music, old and new. How about you?
- LAST TRAIN FROM GUN HILL (1959, Dimitri Tiomkin)—Not top-tier Tiomkin (though a typically memorable main theme), but it always amazes me how well Tiomkin’s Russian sensibilities meshed with those of the American West.
- THE TREE OF LIFE (2011, Alexandre Desplat)—I don’t think any more needs to be said.
- TARAS BULBA (1962, Dimitri Tiomkin)—Review coming soon.
- SUPER 8 (2011, Michael Giacchino)—Review coming soon.
- BURNT OFFERINGS (1976, Robert Cobert)—Mediocre, unfrightening flick with a surprisingly effective and melodic horror score.
- CARS 2 (2011, Michael Giacchino)—Review still coming soon.
- KING KONG (1933, Max Steiner)—The one that basically started it all.
- GAME OF THRONES (2011, Ramin Djawadi)—Haven’t watched the series, but the music makes the perfect aural backdrop to my reading of the book.
- METROPOLIS (1927, Gottfried Huppertz)—Review coming soon.
- GRACE QUIGLEY (1985, John Addison)—Though he occasionally lapses into those awful ’80s synth sounds, Addison still manages to keep his distinctive quirky voice for this unfortunate swan song for the great Katharine Hepburn.
