I wanted to post this review last week, but the sudden death of James Horner made it necessary to write a post about him. I still cannot believe that he is dead and that there will be no more soundtracks by James Horner!

„The Witches of Eastwick“  (1987) is one of my favorite scores by John Williams. Based on a novel by John Updike, “Mad Max” director George Miller brought an amazing cast together. Jack Nicholson as Daryl Van Horne gives one of his best performances, and Cher, Michelle...
