#1 Post by AndyDursin » Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:09 pm

A delightful visit with Joe Dante's MATINEE plus the newest Kino Lorber Studio Classics and Twilight Time releases in the first Aisle Seat of 2018!

In before the storm (lol)...

Pre-ordered Matinee (although have yet to receive any shipping notification :x), and am looking forward to another viewing. I don't believe I've sat down and watched it since its initial VHS release almost 25 years ago.

Picked up Matinee from the post office today, and gave it a watch tonight...what a charming, sweet and funny movie. :) The young leads are on the bland side (and the "greaser" boyfriend character seems very grafted on just to give the movie a modicum of "drama"), but the loving evocations of 50's and early 60's-era schlock cinema are hilariously spot-on, and John Goodman is wonderful. Just odd that the clip of Jerry Goldsmith's score that plays under the end credits of each interview segment sounds like it's being played underwater. :? Did I just get a bad copy, or something? The movie itself and the interviews sound fine, but the music under the interview end titles sound horrendous.

Didn't notice it...could be compression. It's the music running under the interview endings, so either way it's definitely not a big deal.

Not a dealbreaker in any way, but it's just odd. The music sounds like a tinny, mono score recorded in 1956, so maybe that was the intention...?
