In this edition of Throwback Thursday, we revisit Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly film, featuring score by Graham Reynolds! The album was released last year on vinyl via Lakeshore and Fire Records. Richard Linklater’s film based on a story by Philp K. Dick, which stars Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey, Jr., and Winona Ryder, was a visual delight produced in rotoscope animation and considered a commercial success at the time of its release in 2006. Hailed as “one of the most faithful movie adaptations of any Dick story to date” (Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune), its influence in pop culture endures to this day.
Fans of the film will surely prick their ears to discover stars Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder have reunited in their upcoming film, Destination Wedding (in theaters August 31). The film features score by triple EMMY® Winner William Ross (Ladder 49, Away and Back) — stay tuned for soundtrack release information on this!
In honor of Tom Cruise‘s birthday today, Lakeshore Records takes a look back at Tropic Thunder(rent it on iTunes), a highly entertaining film which stars Tom Cruise as the hilariously hotheaded movie producer, Les Grossman. Composer Theodore Shapiro (Blades of Glory, Marley & Me, Dinner for Schmucks) created a decidedly epic score which highlights the movie’s beautiful cinematography and explosive action sequences. The various artists soundtrack is the perfect playlist for this movie: Creedence Clearwater Revival (“Run Through The Jungle”), Edwin Starr (“War”), Ten Years After (“I’d Love to Change the World”), The Temptations (“Ball of Confusion”), MC Hammer (“U Can’t Touch This”), The Crystal Method and more.
Cruise’s comical turn as the hip-hop dancing man of excess is arguably the icing on the cake in Tropic Thunder. With an ensemble cast headlined by Ben Stiller (Megamind, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), Robert Downey, Jr. (Charlie Bartlett, Zodiac), Jack Black (Year One, Be Kind Rewind), Nick Nolte (Warrior, The Spiderwick Chronicles), Brandon T. Jackson (Californication, Fast & Furious) and Jay Baruchel (How To Train Your Dragon, Million Dollar Baby), this action adventure about a movie cast who are unwittingly thrown in the middle of a drug war in the jungles of Southeast Asia is not to be missed.
Summer is here! The Topic Thunder Soundtrack album is a timeless classic for summer fun. Featuring songs from a diverse and respected group of artists including The Crystal Method, CCR, Ten Years After, Ja Net Dubois, Edwin Starr, Enigma and others this album is a ready made mix tape!
Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. lead an ensemble cast in “Tropic Thunder,” an action comedy about a group of self-absorbed actors who set out to make the most expensive war film. After ballooning costs force the studio to cancel the movie, the frustrated director refuses to stop shooting, leading his cast into the jungles of Southeast Asia, where they enoucter real bad guys.
