The Best Bourne Yet

27 July 2016 11:06 AM, PDT

By Mark Cerulli

The series’ fifth installment explodes on the screen as Matt Damon returns to the role he originated way back in 2002.  The Bourne in this film is a bulked up, bare knuckle street brawler, earning money to support a humble off the grid existence. While never chatty and light, this Bourne incarnation is – if possible – even more grim and purposeful than before. (Supposedly Damon has only 25 lines of dialogue in the entire film!) His old CIA ally, Nicky Parsons (played by the wonderful Julia Stiles) tracks him down, offering freshly hacked information that will finally put the missing pieces in Bourne’s identity puzzle. When he learns that his own father was deeply involved then sacrificed, this chase becomes personal. Let’s just say you don’t want to get in Bourne’s way when it’s personal…

As important as Damon’s return to the franchise is, »

Review: "Masters Of Venus" (1962) Region 2 DVD Release From The BFI

26 July 2016 3:48 AM, PDT

By Tim Greaves

Between the early 1950s and mid 1980s the Children's Film Foundation was a non-profit making establishment behind dozens of films aimed at a young audience, most of them screening as programme constituents at Saturday morning 'Picture Shows'. I didn't catch many of these during my own childhood. But I do recall a couple of particularly enjoyable ones that I did get to see in the early 1970s: Cry Wolf (1969) and All at Sea (1970), both of which are conspicuously absent from the half dozen or so collections issued on DVD to date. Many of the Cff’s films had a run-time of around an hour, although there were also a number of serials in their catalogue. Masters of Venus was one such production. Comprising eight 15-minute instalments, it arrives on DVD in the UK in a restored release from BFI.

Review: "Is Paris Burning?", 50th Anniversary 2-cd Set From Tadlow

25 July 2016 3:50 AM, PDT

By Darren Allison

Is Paris Burning? Composed by Maurice Jarre, The 50th Anniversary Recording of the Complete Score. A Special Collectors 2 CD Edition featuring a brand new recording by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra Conducted by Nic Raine. Released by Tadlow Music, Price: £16.95 TADLOW023, Date: August 25th 2016 Anniversary of the Liberation of Paris.

It’s always exciting to receive the latest release from Tadlow music. When award winning producer James Fitzpatrick and respected conductor Nic Raine join forces and combine their talents, you know the result is always going to be good. Maurice Jarre’s music is, of course, nothing new to the long standing partnership. Together in recent years, they have overseen triumphant new recordings of Jarre’s Lawrence of Arabia (1962) and Villa Rides (1968).

Is Paris Burning? (1966) is their latest collaboration and features the complete 69 minute film score including previously unrecorded cues. A great deal of Jarre’s patriotic score is heavily militaristic, »
