El Topo Soundtrack Alejandro Jodorowksy photo: turntablelab.com El Topo is the kind of movie that should be seen by everyone simply due to its historical significance. It’s one of those movies that has nothing to lose. Some will love it and become interested in its creator Alejandro Jodorowsky and all his movies, others will like it, others will appreciate it for just how unique and strange it is, others will consider this movie homework and something a film buff ought...

Edge Of Tomorrow – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP By Christophe Beck It might be time for us to rehabilitate Tom Cruise. He’s long reigned supreme as America’s favorite weirdo actor celebrity, and it’s his own fault. Who could forget that appearance on Oprah years ago when we all realized just how strange of a bubble the man lives in. That just opened up a pandora’s box of oddness that directly relates to the shady organizations the man associates himself...

10 Cloverfield Lane – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP By Bear McCreary I’d be lying if I said the lovely Mary Elizabeth Winstead wasn’t reason I was initially interested in 10 Cloverfield Lane. Since breaking onto the scene with Deathproof and Scott Pilgrim, Winstead has developed an interesting career for herself as a “scream queen” of sorts. Whether this is on purpose or not, I wouldn’t know. But I didn’t quite believe that reputation until I saw 10 Cloverfield (Ln)....

Magnolia Motion Picture Soundtrack and Score Where does one even begin with a director like Paul Thomas Anderson? Where does one even begin with Magnolia? Yes, PTA has gotten the reputation of having his head up his ass. Does that have any merit? I don’t know. I do know that his movies are nothing if not thought-provoking, whether you love them or hate them. The man writes and directs his own projects and each of his movies are a unique...

Jaws Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by John Williams We can argue all night about what the best New England movies are, but for my money nothing comes close to Jaws. OK Second Sight might be a worthy contender, but the sheer terror of Jaws probably still overpowers it. Jaws is one of these movies that terrified us as kids and manages to stay with us in our deep consciousness. And for me, I also grew up on an island with...

Batman Returns Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Danny Elfman The Batman movies are more than great movies (for the most part). They’re a window into our soul. Let me explain. Picking your favorite Batman is like picking your favorite late night talk show host. There’s always been one we enjoy the most or can relate to the most and our choices are can tell us a lot about ourselves. The (arguably) five different Batmans are: Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val...

Back To The Future Part II – Original Score 2XLP By Alan Silvestri More complex movies do exist of course, but few are as transcendent or as satisfying as Back to the Future. It’s been said that the script is like a Swiss watch: so well crafted. The BTTF trilogy is such a monument to cinematic achievement that collectively we know all the parts to the movies, but still haven’t seen them enough to truly merit such academic scholarship. The...

Alien – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP By Jerry Goldsmith There are many scary movies out there, but few captivate their audience to a degree that they become their own franchise. That’s because few movies are as iconic as Alien. I can’t remember ever seeing the entire first movie until 6 years ago, but I already knew most of its iconic scenes. That chestburster scene must have been spoofed to death by now (get it?), and it even pops up...

Alejandro Jodorowsky The Dance of Reality (Original Soundtrack) Photo: popmarket.com Let’s talk about Alejandro Jodorowsky’s evolution as a filmmaker. If you compare one of his latest movies Dance of Reality with his earlier work like El Topo or Holy Mountain, you can clearly notice how Jodorowsky’s become a much more polished filmmaker while still staying on message. That message of course is to challenge his viewers, bombard them with iconography, make them think, and truly try to change the world...

Alejandro Jodorowsky The Holy Mountain (Original Soundtrack) Photo: Turntablelab.com Alejandro Jodorowsky’s movies are unlike anything else out there. To call them truly unique barely scratches the surface. Who could have guessed that the Chilean filmmaker would rise to such an infamous status and that he would still be so respected today? Even though his newest movies are definitely easier to digest and much more polished efforts, that bold and daring aspect still remains predominantly at the forefront. And nothing perhaps...
