Part of the reason I haven't been posting much lately is that I'm just not watching any movies right now. I used to watch several movies a week, and now... maybe a couple a month? And those have either been re-watches, or not been worth writing about, for the most part. I'm also burnt out from work, and from sitting in front of a computer all day, and the last thing I want to do in the evening is sit on the couch some more. I'm done sitting!
Instead of watching movies, I've been listening to movie soundtracks. This lets me stay up and active around the house - cleaning, exercising, playing with the cats, anything but sitting - but still enjoy one of the things I love most in life. I recently decided to run through all my Jerry Goldsmith scores, A-Z. Like most of us, I tend to get stuck in ruts, and I've got twenty or so scores of his I listen to all the time, and some quite often, some I love but wore out years ago, and some... almost never. A revisit lets me re-discover some of the music I own that I've forgotten about.
So, I thought I'd post very quick reviews as I run through the scores. Not that many people will be interested, I'm sure, but it'll be good for me, so I can refer back to the list at some future point, when I need it. If there's a particular cue I really love, and it's on youtube, I might post a link.
I own over 150 scores by Goldsmith... so have some tea and settle in. Or feel free to wander away for awhile! My feelings won't be hurt! :-D
