John Barry dies at 77

http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/9730/johnbarry718.jpg

What a sad news when legendary British composer John Barry (pictured, right, alongside Jane Birkin) has died at the age of 77. Barry won five Oscars during his career and is probably best known for writing the music for many of the iconic James Bond films.

AP- Five-time Oscar-winning composer John Barry, who wrote music for a dozen James Bond films, including “You Only Live Twice” and “Goldfinger” but couldn’t persuade a jury that he composed the suave spy’s theme music, has died. He was 77.

Barry died in New York, where he had lived for some time, on Sunday, his family said. The family did not release the cause of death.

Though his work on the Bond films is among his most famous, the English-born composer wrote a long list of scores, including for “Midnight Cowboy,” “Dances with Wolves” and “Body Heat.” He was proud of writing both for big action blockbusters and smaller films.

He won two Oscars for “Born Free” in 1966, for best score and best song. He also earned statuettes for the scores to “The Lion in Winter” (1968), “Out of Africa” (1985) and “Dances with Wolves” (1990).

His association with Agent 007 began with “Dr. No” in 1962, although his contribution to that film was not credited and is in dispute.

Monty Norman, who was credited as the composer for “Dr. No,” sued The Sunday Times in 2001 for reporting that Barry had composed the theme, working from scraps of Norman’s work. Norman won the case, collecting 30,000 pounds ($48,000).

Barry testified that he was paid 250 pounds to work on the theme music, developing the guitar line from part of Norman’s song “Bad Sign, Good Sign,” but agreed that Norman would get the credit. He was asked whether Norman wrote the theme and responded “absolutely not.”

In later years, Barry limited his comment on the case to saying, “If I didn’t write it, why did they ask me to do the other ones?”

He subsequently wrote music for “Goldfinger,” “From Russia with Love,” “Thunderball,” “You Only Live Twice,” “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” “Diamonds are Forever,” “The Man with the Golden Gun,” “Moonraker,” “Octopussy,” “A View to a Kill” and “The Living Daylights.”

Born John Barry Prendergast, he recalled growing up “exposed to the fantasy life of Hollywood” at the eight theaters his father owned in Northern England.

“Rather than talkie-talkie movies, I liked films with excitement and adventure, because they were the ones that had the music,” Barry said in an interview with The Guardian newspaper in 1999.

“It was nice to have the very commercial Bondian thing ... and then at the same time have these smaller movies which were artistically more interesting to do,” he said.

Other films included “Robin and Marian,” “Somewhere in Time,” “The Cotton Club,” “Peggy Sue Got Married” and “Howard the Duck.” He was also nominated for Oscars for his scores of “Mary, Queen of Scots” in 1971 and “Chaplin” in 1992.

Barry trained as a pianist, studied counterpoint with York cathedral organist Francis Jackson, and later took up the trumpet. He founded a jazz group, the John Barry Seven, in 1957.

The group teamed with singer Adam Faith, scoring hits with “What Do You Want?” and “Poor Me,” and Barry moved into film work when Faith was tapped to star in “Beat Girl” (titled “Living for Kicks” in the United States).

“The James Bond movies came because we were successful in the pop music world, with a couple of big instrumental hits. They thought I knew how to write instrumental hit music,” Barry said in an interview with The Associated Press in 1991.

In an interview in 2008 with The Irish Times, Barry said his success “was not that difficult.”

“If you hit the right formula, if you have an instinct for music, if you apply it, if you have the good fortune to meet with certain people who teach you well ... I didn’t find it all that difficult,” he said.



Farewell sir, you are in my heart. Thank you for all the fantastic times.

Oscar Nominations 2011 Full List

http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/7664/oscars2011.jpg

So it’s The King’s Speech that sits high and mighty as the recipient of the most Oscar nominations, a whopping 12, including Best Picture, Best Director (Tom Hooper), Best Actor (Colin Firth) and Best Supporting Actress (Helena Bonham Carter) and this signals that it could now prove to be the film to beat, more so than The Social Network (8 noms), which for a long time was seen as a lock.

True Grit managed a surprising 10 votes and the Old-fashioned Western is proving much more well liked than at the Globes.

Elsewhere, the voting went pretty much as we expected with very few shocks, except perhaps that Chris Nolan wasn’t nominated for Best Director! His film Inception was (8 noms in total), but Nolan’s place instead was taken by the Coens (True Girt) and David O Russell (The Fighter) who were both seen as relative outsiders. Speaking personally and I know you all think I’ve got a hard-on for Nolan but I think it’s a mistake that the Coens have been given the nod here for what was a modest picture for them, compared to Nolan’s adventurous magnum opus.

Sadly, the performance vehicle picture Winter’s Bone took the last Best Picture slot over Ben Affleck’s The Town and Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island. I was half hoping Blue Valentine would sneak in too.

Here’s the full list, I would love to hear your reactions;

Homeless street art from Michael Aaron Williams

http://img535.imageshack.us/img535/8343/homelessstreetart1.jpg

Street artist Michael Aaron Williams purposely puts up his homeless street people in places where others will find them. He doesn’t glue them up, rather, he simply tapes them to the walls so that anyone who passes by might want to stop, take them off the wall, and bring them home. And if no one does? “They will cease to exist,” Williams says. “They will be destroyed and blown away in the wind or other forces that will rip them down and throw them away.”

Ultimately, it’s up to the viewer to decide on the fate of these characters; whether they’ll end up discarded, trampled on, and thrown away or lovingly taken home.

2011 Golden Globe Award Winners' List

golden-globe-nominations-2011

The Social Network won top honors Sunday at the Golden Globes with four prizes, together with best drama and director, solidifying its position as an Academy Awards favorite.

Winning the dramatic lead-acting prizes were Colin Firth for the monarchy saga The King’s Speech and Natalie Portman for the psychosexual thriller Black Swan.

Lead-acting honors for the Globes’ musical or comedy categories went to Annette Bening for the lesbian-family story The Kids Are All Right and Paul Giamatti for the cynic tale Barney’s Version.

The boxing drama The Fighter got both supporting acting Globes, for Christian Bale and Melissa Leo.

Toy Story 3, the top-grossing film released last year won the Globe for animated films, making Disney’s Pixar Animation unit five-for-five in the category since it was added in 2006.

The Fighter Soundtrack [2010]

http://img696.imageshack.us/img696/6808/thefightersoundtrack201.jpg

The Fighter tells the true story of Boston fighter “Irish” Micky Ward and how he was helped to the world lightweight championship by half-brother and his trainer Dicky Ecklund.

Ecklund was a journeyman fighter who sent Sugar Ray Leonard to the canvas in 1978. His career was derailed by drug addiction and a prison sentence. Upon his release, he convinced his younger brother, Ward – who had retired from boxing at 26 after losing four straight – to get back in the ring. Under Ecklund’s tutelage, Ward won the WBU Light Welterweight title and engaged in one of the greatest fight trilogies in history with Arturo Gatti.

http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/2691/thefighter52.jpg

http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/5339/thefighter61.jpg

Wahlberg plays Ward, a fighter who was losing bouts and was ready to hang up the gloves when his brother came back into his life. Ecklund turned his life around and helped his underperforming brother find the spark for a remarkable run that led to the world title.

Also stars Melissa Leo, Dendrie Taylor, Jack McGee, Jenna Lamia, and Bianca Hunter. The script was co-written by Paul Tamasy (Air Bud, Walking Across Egypt) and Eric Johnson with Scott Silver (Johns, The Mod Squad, 8 Mile).

The Fighter arrived in cinemas on December 10th 2010.

Take A Hard Ride Soundtrack [1975-2005]



Take a Hard Ride is a 1975 Western directed by Antonio Margheriti, starring Jim Brown, Lee Van Cleef, and Fred Williamson.

Pike, a stone faced cowboy, meets up with Tyree, a dishonest gambler. Together with a mute Indian scout, Kashtok, the trio attempts to transport $86,000 across hundreds of miles of Western wasteland to deliver it to the widow of Pike's former employer.

The film is notable among 1970s B cinema for being both a blaxploitation film (one of a number teaming Brown and Williamson) and a spaghetti western, co-financed by Italian producers and filmed on location in the Canary Islands. Director Margheriti had attempted a similarly ambitious genre hybrid the previous year with The Stranger and the Gunfighter, a spaghetti western kung fu adventure, also starring Van Cleef.

Plot
Pike (Jim Brown), the right-hand man of cattle rancher Bob Morgan (Dana Andrews), is entrusted with a mission to deliver $86,000 across the border to the Morgan Ranch in Senora, Mexico after his boss dies. Pike teams up with dishonest gambler Tyree (Fred Williamson) and are forced to trust each other while being pursued by various outlaws and gunmen trying to possess the money, including the ruthless bounty hunter Kiefer (Lee Van Cleef) and a corrupt sheriff (Barry Sullivan).

Along the way the duo comes across a prostitute (Catherine Spaak) in need of rescuing and a mute Indian scout skilled in martial arts (Jim Kelly) who help them on their journey. After numerous gun battles and chase sequences, Pike and Tyree reach the end of the line at an abandoned mine, where they duke it out over the money, yet finally settle and work together after getting word of the approaching gunmen. They devise a plan to escape by using explosives to blow up the mine shaft behind them, killing all their pursuers except for Kiefer, who decides to forgo his bounty and let the men continue their quest to reach the ranch.

Rosemary's Baby / The Fearless Vampire Killers Soundtrack [1967 - 1969]

These two soundtracks are really hard to find. They are by Roman Polanski's friend the late Krzysztof Komeda. The first part is the soundtrack to Roman Polanski's film 'Rosemary's Baby' and the second one is the soundtrack to his brilliant and but sadly flopped film 'The Fearless Vampire Killers'.

The latter being one of only a few films in which Polanski's wife, the tragically murdered Sharon Tate played a part.

During the recording of the 'Rosemary's Baby' soundtrack while at a party, Komeda was involved in a never fully explained accident which would lead to his premature death in 1969, he was 38 years old.
