Review: Graft Dracula in Oberbayern, or Dracula Blows His Cool, is the one of the very best B-movie greats of the last thirty years, and we can say this without a shadow of a doubt! Not only is the premise of the cult comedy easily one of the most imaginative and quirky stories to have been made into a film, but Gerhard Heinz' soundtrack was a wake-up call from anyone into the sounds of disco and early boogie, back at the time. In fact, the movie has gained notoriety thanks to this very score, having diggers salivating manically for an original copy. However, it's not all disco sensibility; Heinz is a man who can construct even the most obscure of acoustic roles, but his specialty certainly rests in synthesizers and dance music. Absolute tip!
Review: My Neighbour Totoro is a 1988 critically acclaimed Japanese animated fantasy film, written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki for Studio Ghibli and Tokuma Shoten. The soundtrack, which has stood the test of time, is one of the contributing factors which makes the film so magical. Created by longtime Studio Ghibli composer Joe Hisaishi who is one of Japan's most prolific and celebrated composers, this soundtrack is one of the lightest in mood with the 20 tracks running in chronological order. Stunning, raw and powerful.
