MacGyver (written by Randy Edelman). Let me put it this way: if you weren't pumped by the time that "dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-daaaaah" played, accompanied by MacGyver's name flying out of a cheap 1980s TV explosion, then you weren't really living

MOVIE REVIEW | 'LEAP YEAR'; Ireland in February, With Romance in the Air, Manure on the Ground
NYTimes - about 7 years
A few weeks ago I resolved, in the spirit of the season, to adopt a more positive outlook in the new year. In particular I vowed to break the habit of seizing on every bad movie as a sign that civilization was collapsing. There is already so much doomsaying and apocalypse mongering going around. Why add to it? Then I saw ''Leap Year.'' The worst

At the beginning of ''27 Dresses,'' Jane (Katherine Heigl), a serial bridesmaid with an almost pathological devotion to other people's nuptials, spends a long night shuttling between two weddings. One is in Midtown Manhattan, the other in Brooklyn; one has an upper-crusty, white-bread look, while the other appears to be a Jewish-Hindu

The last movie I saw before I went on vacation was ''Hot Rod,'' about a tall, skinny loser who dreams of rising to glory as a stuntman. The first movie I saw upon my return was ''Balls of Fury,'' about a short, stubby loser who seeks glory in the world of competitive Ping-Pong. It's like I never left! And while I have nothing against either film --

A motherless boy, a graceless dog and a witless script propel ''Underdog,'' a live-action resurrection of the 1960s television series about a canine superhero who speaks in rhyme while fighting crime.

FILM REVIEW; Computer-Animated Mayhem
NYTimes - about 12 years
Jim Carrey's 1994 vehicle ''The Mask'' should demand a paternity test to divest itself once and for all of any responsibility for this mutant spawn. Where ''The Mask'' was a thinly drawn bank-heist comedy saved by Mr. Carrey's antic gifts, ''Son of the Mask'' is an irredeemable mess, a computer-animated Punch and Judy show without wit, heart or a

In its first half-hour, ''Surviving Christmas,'' Hollywood's fizzled opening salvo in this year's seasonal sweepstakes, appears to have found a clever way to use Ben Affleck's disagreeable qualities.

The brassy cross-dressing farce ''Connie and Carla'' shows that Hollywood still gets the jitters about gender-bending. Forgetting that a daily parade of sexual and sartorial hybrids troops through the country's living rooms on shows like Jerry Springer's, it exhibits Hollywood's usual two-faced attitude when dealing with gender and sexual

FILM REVIEW; Gory, Glory Hallelujah: Not Just Whistlin' 'Dixie'
NYTimes - about 14 years
''Gods and Generals,'' a lumpy three-and-a-half-hour glob of Civil War history, occupies a narrow but self-important cinematic genre that might be called American History Pageant. As it follows more than two years of Civil War strife, from early 1861 through 1863, the film sustains a tone of grave, high-minded seriousness. This is history with a

While some of the films scored by Edelman were not commercial successes, the music was often reused elsewhere. Themes he wrote for Dragonheart, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (particularly the movie's love theme Bruce and Linda), Gettysburg and other films have been widely used in television advertising, film trailers, Disney movies including Mulan, and during the Academy Awards. In particular, the rousing yet heartwarming theme of Dragon, featured in "The Premiere of THE BIG BOSS" and "The Dragon's Heartbeat" have become synonymous with tear-jerking films of bittersweet yet triumphant rises to glory, featuring prominently in trailers of films like Patch Adams, The Truman Show, In Love and War and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone film. Themes from his score for Come See the Paradise have been used in film trailers more than cues from any other film soundtrack.
