The annual summary for 2021 is published:

https://www.filmtracks.com/news/updates.cgi?read=78

It was a fantastic year for the site in terms of review production. Things have been a little rockier so far in January, with the family battling COVID infections we got when returning from Montana to Seattle on December 30th. It ended up seeming like an annoying head cold for me, personally, but at least we're all through with it now for this round.

Note that most of the all-new reviews of older titles written last year have not yet debuted on the site. Likewise, there are another 20+ re-writes still to debut as well. I'm not yet sure how I'll pace their publishing, but I'll have to speed them up.

As for my criteria for reviewing older scores at this point, I'm generally looking at four metrics:

1. Unreviewed scores most entered into Filmtracks' internal search engine.
2. Unreviewed scores that are part of major franchises for which the others were reviewed.
3. Unreviewed scores for box office successes from 2015-2019 that slipped by.
4. Unreviewed scores from major composers that typically see demand on all their reviews.

For that last group, look for additional coverage on lesser Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, and (maybe a few) James Newton Howard scores, as well as possible coverage of John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith titles from 1970 to 1975.

Despite some marginal demand, I don't plan to review classics prior to 1970. I could picture myself spending a couple of days arranging coverage on Spartacus and having it read less than a new Lorne Balfe review. (No offense to Lorne Balfe.) I need to stick to the established scope of the site.
