REVIEW

Gremlins 2: The New Batch (ENGLISH)

Gremlins 2: The New Batch (Jerry Goldsmith). The soundtrack of Gremlins 2 supposes an insipid enough repetition of the first part of Gremlins. The best themes continue being the ones already listened in the first 1984 movie, with new ones that does not specially stand out. The component of terror that was abounding in the first movie and in Goldsmith's score gets lost in this second part in favor to accentuate the comedy, which reduces the dramatic quality that was present in the first part.

The second parts always have the problematics of surprising with original themes, and, in this case, it turns out to be bored for counting with main themes already known and few innovations worth being highlighted. In spite of it, it is welcome that Varèse continues releasing expanded editions for soundtracks from the past and, though it is late, it compensates for the not publication of this music in the original edition of the soundtrack.

The expanded edition takes advantage of the 25th anniversary of the movie to be published, reaching 39 minutes more than the original soundtrack. The expanded score and a few bonus tracks brief and slightly insipid shape this anniversary edition.

Gremlins 2: La Nueva Generación (ESPAÑOL)

Gremlins 2: La Nueva Generación (Jerry Goldsmith). La banda sonora de Gremlins 2 supone una repetición bastante más insípida que la primera parte. Los mejores temas siguen siendo los temas ya escuchados en la película de 1984, con alguno nuevo que no destaca especialmente. La componente de terror que abundara en la primera película y en el score de Goldsmith se pierde en esta segunda parte en favor de acentuar la comedia, lo que le resta el dramatismo del que sí gozaba la primera parte.

Las segundas partes siempre tienen la problemática de sorprender con temas originales, y, en este caso, resulta aburrida por contar con temas principales ya conocidos y pocas novedades dignas de ser resaltadas. A pesar de ello, que Varèse siga editando en formato extendido bandas sonoras del pasado siempre es bienvenido y, aunque tarde, resarce por la no publicación de esta música en la edición original de la banda sonora.

La edición expandida aprovecha el 25 aniversario de la película para publicarse, aportando 39 minutos más que la banda sonora original. El score expandido y unas pistas extras breves y algo insípidas conforman esta edición aniversario.
