- Film Score Friday #1: “On the Waterfront” (1954) - A game-changing score for a game-changing film: a look at Leonard Bernstein's music for "On the Waterfront".
- Film Score Friday #2: “Ghost in the Shell” (1995) - Mamoru Oshii's 1995 animated masterpiece gets the appropriate treatment from composer Kenji Kawai.
- Film Score Friday #3: “The Thing” (1982) - Ennio Morricone helps ramp up the chills for John Carpenter's Antarctic-set 'ultimate in alien terror'.
- Film Score Friday #4: “Ran” (1985) - A great meeting of minds as Toru Takemitsu contributes a suitably lugubrious score to Akira Kurosawa's historical epic.
- Film Score Friday #5: “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (1965) - The "Peanuts" gang's festive-themed first animated outing set the tone for a long and successful series, thanks in no small part to Vince Guaraldi's jazz piano score.
