Cool Stuff: The Ultimate Collection of John Williams Music from Steven Spielberg’s Films

Steven Spielberg and John Williams score collection

You’d be hard pressed to find such an iconic pairing of director and composer as Steven Spielberg and John Williams. The two enormous talents have been working together for 42 years now, starting all the way back with The Sugarland Express in 1974 and stretching up through The BFG last year. The only two Spielberg movies that don’t have a score by John Williams are The Color Purple and Bridge of Spies. And now a new collection will assemble some of the greatest music from their long history of collaboration.

Find out about this new ultimate Steven Spielberg and John Williams score collection below.

John Williams & Steven Spielberg: The Ultimate Collection is an updated sampling of critically acclaimed, award-winning, chart-topping compositions that come from some of the most iconic films ever made. A collection like this has been made available before, but now it has a third disc made up of new recordings of tracks from films such as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Amistad, The BFG, Lincoln, The Adventures of Tintin, Minority Report, Catch Me If You Can, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Saving Private Ryan, War Horse, The Terminal, Munich and even Spielberg’s 1999 documentary The Unfinished Journey.

In addition, the collection will include a DVD with a new documentary by filmmaker and film historian Laurent Bouzereau, who has been documenting Spielberg’s work for more than twenty years. Three discs of music and a special documentary will cost you $ 30, and it’s available on Amazon for pre-order right now.

Ashton Kutcher blew a kiss at John McCain and lol what is happening?

TwitterFacebook

What the world needs now is love, sweet love — and if we need to rely on John McCain and Ashton Kutcher to help us achieve that, then so be it.

On Wednesday morning, Kutcher, dreamy actor and chairman of Thorn, a tech company that builds software to fight human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children, attended a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing in D.C. to speak about how to end modern slavery.

After Kutcher’s speech concluded, however, the world was given a quick glimpse at an, um, unexpected moment between him and Sen. John McCain.

It started with sass and ended with a kiss … Read more…

‘LEGO Batman’ Tops ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ & ‘John Wick 2’ With $55.6 Million

It was the best weekend at the 2017 box office so far, led by WB’s The LEGO Batman Movie along with fellow newcomers Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick: Chapter Two topping the box office in that order. But along with the new releases, five of the weekend’s holdovers, especially Lion, held on extremely well, dropping 35% or less compared to last weekend. Overall the weekend top twelve came in just a fraction below our overall expectation of $ 180 million as the top twelve combined for an est…

Interview (Written): John Michael McDonagh

A revealing Q&A with the outspoken U.K.-based writer-director.

John Michael McDonagh

The Quietus interview with John Michael McDonagh whose writing-directing credits include The Guard, Calvary, and War on Everyone.

Do you mind being compared to your brother, since you have a somewhat similar cinematic voice? Do you feel competitive with each other?

I don’t mind being compared with him, even though it’s a really banal and pointless journalistic tic. As for feeling competitive, once my debut feature The Guard became the most successful independent Irish film of all time, I felt like I’d accomplished all I wanted to accomplish, so that was that.

Might the two of you collaborate on a film someday?

No, never.

What do you think of the critical reception the film (War on Everyone) has had?

Some critics say, “I really like this film.” Other critics say, “I really hate this film.” At the end of the day, it’s all meaningless. I got paid, and we’re all going to die.

For the rest of the interview, go here.

Review: ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ is a Perfect, Blood-Soaked Action Sequel

John Wick: Chapter 2

John Wick can come back any time he damn well pleases. That was the message delivered by the 2014 action hit that not only saw the eponymous assassin returning to his death-dealing ways, it was a return of sorts for the film’s star, Keanu Reeves. Keanu is back, John Wick is back, and the film that follows, John Wick: Chapter 2, is a perfect, action-packed, bullet-riddled, blood-soaked sequel. The follow-up does precisely what a sequel should do. It’s bigger than its predecessor, and more elaborate than the efficient, streamlined actioner it follows. It isn’t necessarily better. That would truly be an impossible task, but John Wick: Chapter 2 delivers on all this new franchise promises, an action extravaganza that keeps us amped for more. ›››

Listen to the New ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Theme Song by John Legend & Ariana Grande

Beauty and the Beast Theme Song Remake

You can hear John Legend on the La La Land soundtrack, playing the kind of jazz music that Ryan Gosling’s character actively hated until it provided him with a steady paycheck. So it only seems appropriate that John Legend cashes in himself by taking on a classic Disney theme song with another chart-topping singer.

Beauty and the Beast has one of the most famous theme songs from any animated movie, and it was all over the radio back in 1991 (and even 1992) thanks to Céline Dion and Peabo Bryson. Now John Legend has been tasked with remaking it along with fellow best-selling artist Ariana Grande (who hosted Saturday Night Live nearly a year ago). Does their rendition of the classic theme song shake a stick at the original?

Listen to the Beauty and the Beast theme song remake after the jump to find out.

While the vocals for the song are outstanding, there are moments when the instrumentals sound like some kind of karaoke backtrack. Then again, that can also be said of the original pop recording by Céline Dion and Peabo Bryson, so maybe that’s what they’re going for. There’s no denying that Legend and Grande have genuine talent, but I feel like if you love the original song already, this new one isn’t going to do much for you.

However, I really hope that we get to see one of these music videos with Legend and Grande singing the song in a recording booth, surrounded by an orchestra, with clips of Beauty and the Beast playing throughout. They just don’t make enough music videos like that anymore. If you don’t remember what the original was like, here you go:
