T'was the night before Christmas and all was quiet, well actually It's the 5th December but stay with me.  Let's rectify that and make it even more like Christmas with ten festive tracks by John Williams. Merry Christmas.

Lets start with a classic from the movie, Home Alone.


We'll return to Home Alone later.  Next up it's a real treat.  John Williams conducting Sleigh Ride with the excellent Boston Pops.


Over to Home Alone 2 now with Christmas at Carnegie Hall.


All aboard the Hogwarts express now as we head to the magical land of Harry Potter for Christmas, floating candles and all.


Staying within the Harry Potter universe we have this wonderfully majestic piece from The Chamber of Secrets.  Has a magical Christmas feel.


Back to Home Alone now.  We couldn't do a John Williams Christmas list without this one.


A short track now from John Williams' soundtrack, The Book Thief.


Finally lets have a really traditional medley of Christmas music.  Thanks for reading and listening.  Merry Christmas everyone.







I have added all the above videos in one playlist for your enjoyment.  Click here.

Alice The Librarian

Sad news as we here the veteran stage actress, Alice Drummond has died at the age of 88.  Ghostbusters fans will remember her as Alice the librarian at the beginning of the film.  In the scene we see her doing her day to day library duties only to witness the first ghost of the movie and end up being traumatized as a result.  The Ghostbusters end up interviewing her and asking some rather personal questions.

She died on Wednesday at her home in the Bronx due to complications following a fall that she survived two months ago, according to the New York Times.



Her first break into Hollywood came in 1967 when she landed a role on the ABC soap opera “Dark Shadows.” Later Drummond would appear on other soaps including CBS’ “Where the Heart Is” and a short stint on “As the World Turns.” She would go on to enjoy a healthy film and television career spanning more than four decades.

Take some John Williams and add some Star Wars and everyone is guaranteed to smile.  Especially when it's a new Star Wars soundtrack.  Yes, according to Variety, John Williams is to begin recording Star Wars Episode VIII this month.  Yes, it's that close!  The composer also discussed working on The BFG and the disappointment in the box office takings the film took but enjoyed creating the wonderful soundtrack for the Spielberg movie:
“I loved doing it,” says Williams of “BFG,” “because it was a change from a lot of the things we’ve done. It was done with such feeling and such humanity that it represented a charming palette for me.”
Williams concedes that he had hoped for greater commercial success for “The BFG,” which was deemed a box-office disappointment after its July 1 release. His next film, however, won’t be: He begins recording “Star Wars Episode VIII” in December and expects to record off and on through March or April 2017.

Forget relying on faceless robots – matching users with similar interests is the way forward, says new recommendation app itcher

The Bearded Trio recommends a new app called itcher.

While most online entertainment services have their own ‘similar to’ recommendations, they’re not always accurate. This means you can easily waste time and money on something you don’t end up enjoying. Instead, itcher uses its passionate community by matching their taste profiles, to help users find what they’re looking for, no matter how varied their interests.

itcher is an exciting new community-driven app that provides users with accurate and personalised movie, book music and game recommendations, making it perfect for planning entertainment at the weekend.

For those who are new to itcher, the innovative app cleverly taps into its passionate community by matching their taste profiles, helping users find what they’re looking for no matter how diverse their interests.

Whilst most online entertainment services have their own ‘similar to’ recommendations, sometimes they can get it wrong, meaning users can easily waste their time and money on something they don’t end up enjoying. itcher makes suggestions based on the tastes of users that like the same things – rate a few titles and it matches your interests to others to find the musical artists, films, videogames and books that you’re yet to discover.

Recommendations are personalised to each user, and suggestions begin after rating just five titles – just by telling itcher which films, books, music, and games you love, and which ones you hate, and your profile will start building.

It’s no surprise then that many users are seeking inspiration on itcher ahead of the weekend, although we’re not sure their bosses will be too pleased!

lego jurassic park

By now we're all pretty used to the idea that the Jurassic Park franchise is back in full force. Spinning off of the legendary Steven Spielberg series, 2015's Jurassic World was about as strong a revival as any studio could have hoped for. The movie delighted critics and audiences, raking in $1.6 billion worldwide at box offices. Naturally there's a sequel on the way, and for all we know we could be on the cusp of a sprawling new branch of the franchise.

Even before Jurassic World reached theaters, we were seeing something of a rebirth of Jurassic Park-related entertainment through the gaming industry. Back in 2011, Telltale Games produced Jurassic Park: The Game, a few years before the studio really exploded onto the console scene to become a recognized pioneer in narrative gaming. Looking back, it feels like a trial run for Telltale as it was criticized for not living up to the film, but also noted by other critics as being more of a cinematic experience than a playable one. For the most part, people seemed to enjoy the game as a somewhat random and unexpected homage to the original movie, but as little more than that. Telltale took a few more years to strike a balance between gameplay and narrative exhibition. Nevertheless, it was fun to see a Jurassic Park game of any kind pop up in 2011.

Another somewhat surprising Jurassic Park tribute game that appeared before Jurassic World ever materialized was an online slot arcade designed with approval from Universal. Listed among the game offerings from numerous prolific casino platforms, the Jurassic Park game employs imagery and music from the original film (including John Williams' iconic theme) to make a traditional slot reel a little bit more interesting. It's not a unique game in that there are many others like it that make use of popular movies or shows, but it still felt a little like a random tribute to Jurassic Park. It was further evidence that even before Jurassic World, people were still holding onto the franchise.

In 2012, we also saw the emergence of Jurassic Park Builder, a mobile game described as a thrilling interactive journey where players could design their own parks. The game took advantage of a few common formats in mobile gaming like city building and creature capture to create a full-fledged Jurassic Park construction and management experience. While somewhat simple from a graphics standpoint, it may have been the most immersive Jurassic Park gaming experience we'd seen by that point.

Then we reached 2015, and along with the release of Jurassic World several new games came out based on the new movie while building on the ideas of the previous titles. Jurassic World: The Game is a mobile experience not unlike Jurassic Park Builder, and LEGO Jurassic World—which we wrote about before—was a large-scale, playful adventure that follows the plot lines of all four Jurassic Park movies.

Add it all up and that's five games since 2011—three of which came out before the reboot was even on people's radar! Given that the film series doesn't seem like it's dying out any time soon, we can probably expect more games like these in the coming years. In the meantime, it's cool to look back and realize that the Jurassic Park revival actually started before Hollywood got involved.
