THE THING [2018] Vinyl 2LP Soundtrack Music By Ennio Morricone – Alan Howarth – Larry Hopkins

THE THING[Buysoundtrax]

A NOTE FROM ALAN HOWARTH : The final score as it is heard in the film is actually an amalgamation of Morricone’s original orchestral music, his subsequent electronic material (the pulsating “Thing Theme”), and the droning ambiences created by Howarth and Carpenter. “Other than that one session I really didn’t have that much involvement with it,” said Howarth. “I just helped John make those cues, and then it was really up to John to sit down and cut all that stuff in and say I want it here and I want it there.” Click on the image below for buy the double vinyl

REVIEW :SOUND QUALITY 5/5 ARTWORK AND PACKAGING 4/5

MY FAVS/Best Tracks:

SIDE ONE 01.Main Title 02 Despair

SIDE TWO Humanity 03 Burn It 04 Solitude

SIDE THREE 01 Fucks – 02 To Mac’s Shack*

SIDE FOUR 01 Eternity 02 Contamination 03 Bestiality

In my view the pulsating “Thing Theme” Here available and named AT TRACK 2/3 SIDE ONE MAIN THEME – DESOLATION – HUMANITY II [Originally HUMANITY II TRACK 8 OF MCA CD] compared to the previous material from original Album is a little bit different and could not be so great on electronic beats at first hearings but have something of good and improved in to orchestral arrangements,this feature reflected in every orchestral part of this new edition.Instead The electronic droning ambiences tracks created by Alan Howarth and John Carpenter are amazing,powerful,deafening and ARE the real core of the SENSE OF DREAD AND TERROR OF THE movie as we heard in THEATERS IN TO 1982 ,so in my part this LP is a must have.

GHOST IN THE SHELL

2017 Bring one of best movie never seen since years , I need movie like this , peace and enjoyment for my eyes and yes ,speaking about futuristic AI subjects, I’m one of those people that did not like BLADE RUNNER 2049; this one GHOST IN THE SHELL from Rupert Sanders is far better in my view, has the same charm of Alex Garland ‘s EX Machina and contains unforgettable moments (like the jellyfish scene ) but really the experience is boosted starting from a linear well written story(forgivable in little parts) and OUTSTANDING Top notch Craft  and continuing with casting choices, I LOVE Scarlett globally talking as I loved the choices of Juliette Bionche,Takeshi Kitano and the short uncredited cameo of Michael Wincott ;so let’s quote again the special EFX from Weta and other crew (Art Dept,Make up,Practical and CGI) , Academy Award Jan Roelfs at Production Design , AMAZING Jess Hall BSC Cinematography dealing with Alexa 65 and “Super Panavision 70” shot at 65mm 5-perf film , and the bloody Soundtrack by Lorne Balfe and Clint Mansell(Grab Here) and last but not the least of Course Rupert Sanders Direction(And yes I hate Snow White and the Huntsman) so If you HAVE NOT GIVE YOUR CONSENT at Theaters please take your copy of BLU RAY everywhere and Enjoy the outstanding Experience of GHOST IN THE SHELL.

Scarlett Johansson plays Major in Ghost in the Shell from Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures.

HEAT BLU RAY

2017 Is going to be memorable, finally Warner Bros./Regency/Forward Pass/20Th Century Fox Release an Outstanding HEAT DIRECTOR DEFINITIVE EDITION Blu ray, in this post some tips and how deal with that
The white cover is the UK version REGION BUPC Bar code 5039036075992 this version is “.. Pristine Restoration personally supervised by Michael Mann ” or better this new one features remastered video from a 4K scan supervised by himself,it also contains some great new and recent extras(check Amazon or other sites for understand what I mean)

The black cover is the US version REGION A or region 1UPC Bar code 024543271321 and also this version is “.. Pristine Restoration personally supervised by Michael Mann ” or better this new one features remastered video from a 4K scan supervised by himself,it also contains some great new and recent extras(check Amazon or other sites for understand what I mean)


Meanwhile in Italy CG home Video (Cecchi Gori) is going to set a Start UP (19 June 2017) for release an Italian version of the Blu Ray,saving a great work at dubbing soundtrack using Giancarlo Giannini(Al Pacino) and Ferruccio Amendola(Robert De Niro)and I hope at least featuring also English original language and subtitles (Italian and English),I dont’know which master are going to use but is a step far from the zero of these years in Italian home video market,however for any tests in BLU RAY quality matter CHECK HERE

 

Off topic; Last but not the least enjoy my Mixcloud about the rest of music used on HEAT , I called HEAT B SIDE and I think is ” ..a great research for show the great tastes and Musical Genius of Michael Mann!”

ALIEN C O V E N A N T – WHAT ARE MY CHANCES ?

A L I E N  Covenant

So let’s talk about Sir Ridley Scott and his upcoming A L I E N COVENANT , coming out in ITALY 11 MAY 2017, in the previous 2 movies ALIEN and PROMETHEUS we have seen TWO spacecrafts named Juggernaut , a massive spacecrafts constructed by the Engineers( royal pricks of high-bred origins ),for whom know the saga that spaceships are derelicts, one on the moon LV426(ALIEN) and the other in LV233(Prometheus),both are planetoids(moons) of Zeta2 Reticuli IV system ; however , Now this time alien COVENANT show a third derelict spacecraft in to a another unknown terr-alike planet(PLANET 4),smashed in to a wood and with this premise, hoping not only a pilot’s issues, i’m sure it will be A remarkable Pandora’s vase in that amazing SCOTT’s filmic universe.

For who’s looking for other clues about this feature I can say most locations are from New ZeAland ; the cinematography is by Darius Wolski ASC (Prometheus) COVERED WITH ARRI ALEXA XT WITH PANAVISION LENSES(Probably ANAMORPHIC C Series or SOMETHING OF ACTUAL)  and some aerial shoots been covered with RED EPIC and THE HYDRA AERIAL CAMERA system

the TERRIFIC soundtrack is composed by jed kurzel(Macbeth-BABADOOK) and will BE released on Milan Records LP CD AND DIGITAL DOWNLOAD

Composed by JED KURZEL(1976, Australian composer , singer) ALIEN COVENANT SOUNDTRACK is integrating some original elements from JERRY GOLDSMITH’s A L I E N (check 02 The Covenant-05 Sail -06 Planet 4/Main Theme – 08 Wheat Field – 16 Face Hugger and 22 Alien Covenant Theme ) and something of really new mixing electronic with classical music that reach its best in the outstanding tracks 01 Incubation, 15 Command Override , 17 Chest Burster(BEAUTIFUL TRACK FIT IN TO A DISTURBING SCENE) ; while the top notch is the tracks 19 CARGO LIFT – 21 Terraforming Bay thanks to a sort of percussions that really enanched the scene and bring me to something structured and listen around James Newton Howard’s Collateral(Vincent hops train). THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING SCORE,A MUST AND SHOULD NEVER LACK TO ANY SOUNDTRACK COLLECTOR AND LOVER OF THIS MOVIE.

MY LIGHT REVIEW ALIEN COVENANT

ALIEN COVENANT could be poorly named Alien 2017,loosing all the philosophical meaning of the word covenant and later paradise lost ,so i like think about that as upgraded new begin and as      a l i e n  lover I can’t notice the many homages and reference to 1979 FILM , including The T E R R I F I C Soundtrack by Jed Kurzel that has in ITs Musical DNA many Jerry Goldsmith sounds and score.In that outstanding work of art the message is clear this is a new movie about fear of Unknown, fear to face our fears , about choices and mistakes.The feeling of dread and that something of tremendous is coming is constant , those features fit and set in all the acts of the story ,well written  directed and act (outstanding Fassbender and Waterstone)also supported by a state of art cinematography , production design , visual and special effects; this level of realism and beauty in my view was never reached in any other films of the saga(Alien and Prometheus except Which this film is the sequel ). Paying attention to details help  making the differences in suspense terms how could be try to close an automatic door in front a bloodthirsty evil creature but our feet accidentally  is blocking that function or run escaping from something and slipping over blood stains. Covenant is also a magnificent walk in the silence of the depth space but also a close up of acoustic meatus attacked by the black goo.A film of spaces there are introspective view Vs. the vastness of breath taking panorama or unsettling wastelands,with this visual synergy the feeling of being hunted make its play and leave its punch in the stomach . I saw this film twice in 24 hours and I’m still thinking about what i saw,so RIDLEY SCOTT’s Alien Covenant is working and I can’t wait for the next step in the story.
