    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Overwhelming piece, kind of Delerue's 'Hymn to the Fallen'. The film was shot forty years after the battle of Dien Bien Phu in Vietnam, which cost thousands of lives on both sides, for another pointless cause.The music adds poignant meta comment not on the different ethnicities involved but a general sense of loss and tragedy. Sadly one of the few worthy projects in Delerue's later career.

    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    We're only just begun, Richard. Yes, the middle one of the first set is from Five Days One Summer.

    Godzilla Cinematic Universe Thread

    Correct, especially in light of the tsunami and Fukushima disasters. The bit that made me laugh about that whole exchange was the irony of 'civilians must not receive fire' - because Godzilla pretty much killed those two people as it fled back to the ocean anyway.

    That whole exchange was apparently satire to lampoon the Japanese government's bureaucratic bedwetting excesses.

    Oh yeah, that thing. I forgot about that. It uses composite cables, right? I've also seen similar Atari units. I'll just stick with the Pi. Too many legacy units to find hookups for.

    Godzilla Cinematic Universe Thread

    I watched Shin Godzilla for the first time yesterday. I think it's really a rather fantastic movie. Leave it to the Japanese to do it right. The concept of the film is very basic, which is where its ingenuity lies, and the special effects are awesome. The wide shots of Godzilla in Tokyo look eerily realistic. At about 2 hours runtime, however, it could easily be 15-20 minutes shorter. The scenes with Godzilla are perfect, but the offender is the terrible and borderline absurd pseudo-political gibberish. Especially in the last 30 minutes, it drags the film down to near unwatchable depths, putting the worst pseudo-intellectual dialogues of the Heisei era to shame. General rule of thumb: don't produce a Godzilla movie with him as the main antagonist, with as much as 20 minutes of straight, uninterrupted terrible acting. Especially when you make the Japanese premier minister and his staff out to be utter buffoons. "Sir, this gigantic, hostile, unknown creature is annihilating our capital in record time, you may want to authorize the military to kill it." "But it may cause the creature to get aggressive!" "Sir, it's mowing down the city already!" "We can't have the military operate in the city, civilians may get hurt!" "Sir, they are being MOWED DOWN AS WE SPEAK!" "You want me to decide NOW? I need a good night's sleep over this!" "You're a worthless piece of trash, give us the okay now!" "I understand ..."

    The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    Batman ‘66 series, a last volume of Batman the Animated Series, Batman and Mr Freeze - Sub Zero, miscellaneous other animated shows (Batman Beyond, Beware the Batman, further volumes of Brave and the Bold, etc) , a small handful of animated movies (although MV has said he’s out of that game). We know at least that they plan on wrapping up B:TAS. maybe they’ll release the score for that picture of batman’s schlong that was released this week in Batman: Damned #1

    The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    You just listed four films right there - quite a bit to release by my estimation. All of the The Dark Knight Trilogy would have to be 2 discs each of score, right? That's not including Batman vs. Superman, and the yet to be produced Batman film.

    The Doctor Who Thread.....

    A lot of the comments, those that weren't anti-female Who, also agreed that the music was just the wrong choice. I couldn't stand the song when it was on the radio, and to hear it in what is an otherwise brilliant look at the new series is quite a dampener on that joy. There are shots in the trailer that look quite cinematic - perhaps the closest any of the seasons have come to looking like a film!

    Is there anything left to release besides Batman & Robin and The Dark Knight trilogy?

    Err, no. It’s one of the worst selling consoles of all time, discontinued after 3 years on the market.

  21. When you posted this nearly same post in the SPR thread earlier this week, my copy was on my doorstep when I got home that afternoon. Today, same story! My only comment at this point is, part of me just wants to frame and hang that gorgeous big album cover.
