Just forget the words and sing along

Well, I've got even more sad movie news to pass along today.  Jerry Goldsmith has passed away.  Goldsmith was one of the best composers in Hollywood, having written such classic movie scores as Planet of the Apes, Alien, Poletergeist, Gremlins (a personal favourite), Supergirl, the Rambo movies, and dozens of others.  He won an Oscar for the 1974 horror film The Omen

And, as all the Hollywood obituaries are saying, perhaps his best-known theme was the main theme he wrote for Star Trek: The Motion Picture.  He revisited the theme in four of the sequels (#5, 8, 9, 10) and the main theme was recycled as the theme for Star Trek: The Next Generation.  He also wrote the theme for Star Trek: Voyager, which won him one of his four Emmys. 

And even more sad movie news.  As we know, Pixar parted with Disney earlier this year and has been looking for a new movie studio to partner with ever since.  Well, after negotiating with all the big ones, it looks like Pixar has finally settled on...Disney.  That's right, they're going back to the abusive husband. 

Next Issue...Mourning
