CD Reviews

Very Bad Selections
H TERESA K | 10/16/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

""War is Hell: Battle Music from the Movies" is far below average. The selections are poor. For a major orchestra the performances are very weak. And what is A FEW GOOD MEN doing on a CD of motion picture WAR music? I thought A FEW GOOD MEN took place during peace time."
Surprisingly Poor CD from Bill Broughton
Alamo_guy | 10/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very poor entry from Bill Broughton's "Magic of the Movies" series. The "Wild, Wild Westerns" album was outstanding. This album is a huge disappointment for two reasons. Primarily the selections themselves are just mundane and seem to be all over the lot. For instance APOCALYPSE NOW contained a very good original score. Instead Bill Broughton gives us "The Ride of the Valkyries" a classical piece and he does so again with "Adagio for Strings" used in Platoon. Secondly the orchestrations and performances are substandard. "Hymn to Red October" is very poor and does an injustice to that great composition. The GETTYSBERG Main Theme is equally inferior. Bill Broughton should have left the finale to A FEW GOOD MEN off this album altogether. "Song of the High Seas" and "Guadalcanal March" from VICTORY AT SEA are acceptable but are still marginal at best. The only standout on this CD is Elmer Bernstein's THE GREAT ESCAPE. The march is played exceptionally well and true to the film.

Incredibly Bad Album and a Real Misnomer
acinehermoso | 10/16/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"What happened here? I was expecting some really moving themes from war movies. This CD is a dud. Some of the selections don't seem to qualify. THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER and A FEW GOOD MEN should not be on here because they are not War movies. They are military movies, but not War movies. The recordings per say are rather flat and uninspiring. Perhaps the themes from THE GUNS OF NAVARONE or WHERE EAGLES DARE could have helped.
