November - December 2020
11/22/20 Traumfabrik   (Philipp Noll)
All New Review
Buy it... if heartwarming romance scores with touching themes highlighted by piano and choir are your ticket to happiness, this work an impressive breakthrough for young German composer Philipp Noll.
Avoid it... if you loathe unpredictable interludes of over-the-top parody music, for this film required a unique collection of source-like score cues to represent the movies being produced on screen.
11/15/20 A Hidden Life   (James Newton Howard)
All New Review
Buy it... for the gorgeous, lyrical, and intimate romanticism of James Newton Howard's main theme for this otherwise understated but still accomplished score.
Avoid it... if the melodic portions of The Village and Defiance failed to capture your heart, for A Hidden Life matches their highlights, albeit briefly.
11/7/20 Terminator: Dark Fate   (Tom Holkenborg)
All New Review
Buy it... if you have a high tolerance for the flailing redundancy of this franchise and its music, Tom Holkenborg basically sufficing but not always excelling at resurrecting the concept's most famous thematic identities.
Avoid it... if you still await a composer who can provide the heartbreaking main theme for Sarah Connor with proper, authentic dramatism in the face of tired "slash, slur, and clang" techniques for each successive terminator foe.
