A timely podcast for a change.
After a bit of trouble getting started (we forgot the magical hard drive that contains all our scores), we began to cobble together this week's show from old podcast sound clips and scraped-together scores we happened to have on-hand; much like the film Frankenhooker. After seeing a retrospective today over at Cinemassacre.com, I demanded the Boom Operator play the score to Supergirl, the second-dumbest film Peter O-Toole has ever been in. This provoked waves of nostalgia and an incipient boner as I remembered my crush on a young Helen Slater. We got off on a tangent about how film trailers have become more "filmic" than the actual films they precede. How very Baudrillard! We concluded by reviewing the Beckinsale-bootyganza: Underworld VII: The Requickening, and Soderbergh's action-film-as-dowdy-realism Haywire. Both films got a firm, distended thumb in no particular direction. They exist.
We heard music from:
Supergirl, 1984 - Jerry Goldsmith
Electric Dreams, 1984 - Giorgio Moroder
The Dark Crystal, 1982 - Trevor Jones
Pitch Black, 2000 - Graeme Revell
The Informant, 2009 - Marvin Hamlish
