    "The Knight Bus" is horrifying, as is "Mischief Managed" I like their take on "A Bridge to the Past," though.

    Henry Buck reacted to Jay in Schindler's List - 2CD 25th Anniversary Edition from La-La Land Records (2018)   
    If you check out the session leak you can see (well, hear I guess) that they just kept re-recording The Money Exchange over and over again, with subtle changes to the orchestration in every take (and they didn't do the entire cue from start to end in every take either).  Recruiting is way more straight forward; They seemingly nailed this almost 9 minute cue in 2 takes!
     
    Anyway, the OST combined a different set of takes, edited in different places, than the final film did.
     
    The only thing that seems to have been recorded specifically for the album is Jewish Town (Krakow Ghetto - Winter '41) aka The Journey To Krakow (Introduction And Theme).  Even the Remembrances (With Itzhak Perlman) track one would assume was an album-only concert arrangement was clearly intended for the film originally as the sheet music has "20M4 End Credits" right on top.
     
     
     
    Here's some more detail I found, if you're interested:
     
     
     
    Remember the cues in question are
     
    2M3/3M1 The Money Exchange
    3M1B Recruiting
     
    And here's what's in the leak (on disc 1)

    08 2M3-3M1 Take 36 (Original) (5:53)
    09 2M3-3M1 Take 37 (New) (3:34)
    10 2M3-3M1 Take 63 (Rev) (1:55)
    11 2M3-3M1 Take 64 (Rev) (1:54)
    12 3M1 Take 38-39 (New) (4:09)
    13 3M1 Take 40 (New) (3:43)
    14 3M1B Take 41 (8:41)
    15 3M1B Take 42 (8:39)

    Henry Buck got a reaction from Will in Alan Silvestri replaces John Williams for READY PLAYER ONE   
    Electronic music is not a monolithic art that one either understands or doesn't. Williams has incorporated synthesizers and electronic instruments into many of his scores, so it's safe to say he's not totally ignorant of the electronic side of music. I think it's also safe to say that Williams doesn't have Hans Zimmer's fluency in modern digital audio production. There are some things he knows and there are some things he doesn't know. Yeah, he wrote Heartbeeps almost forty years ago. That doesn't mean he's fully equipped to write the kind of electronic music that's in vogue right now.

    Yeah, I kind of fell out of the editing loop around 2009, so while I have saved documents somewhere (on some external hard drive in storage, I think), they wouldn't be optimal. Others have done up to date work, though.

    Henry Buck reacted to DarthDementous in Red Letter Media Reviews (Plinkett & Half in the Bag)   
    okay satire of the people who really do give vapid reviews (ColliderVideos etc.).
     
    but my fucking God just take a look at that comment section to see the people coming out of the woodwork finally validated by their favourite review site (oh look, it's almost as if it RLM fanboys can be as equally worse and hypocritical as Star Wars fanboys) and hyperbolically proclaiming that Rogue One is the worst thing ever. I saw multiple people saying it was worse than The Clone Wars movie which is unfathomable to me.
     
    this pretty much cements the fact that the Internet is ruining my enjoyment of movies - in particular the discussion part of them - because a lot of people aren't thinking for themselves. did you not like Rogue One? great! are your reasons for not liking it linked to the commonality of not being able to connect to the characters and thus invalidating the whole movie? also fine, characters are the most critical parts of a movie.
     
    but here's the part that people can't distinguish from. 
     
    is your personal opinion that you couldn't connect to the characters an objective truth that everyone must share or else they're deluding themselves? fuck no. I'm no shmuck when it comes to movies and I'm pretty aware of what constitutes an engaging character to myself. I don't believe that a character can be objectively good or bad however. I know people that don't care about Han or Leia or Luke, and hell some people like Jar Jar Binks. Jyn was the most confusing to me in terms of motivations but literally all the others are pretty vivid in my mind to the point I had a big emotional response to the final act of the film. and no, I didn't give a standing ovation to every reference as if acknowledging Star Wars exists is reason for praise - they were the icing on what was to me a delicious cake, as Plinkett put it.
     
    for Episode 8 I'm going to shut myself off completely from the Internet hype machine, the speculation and horribly pointless nitpicks of small moments in trailers that don't end up meaning anything in the end. I'll even ignore all discussion for a year until I've made up my own mind and it'll have sunk in enough for everyone else in order for them not to hyperbolically declare it the best or worst thing ever. I'm only going to watch the Teaser trailer as I believe that's the most modest view of the film that'll allow me to keep my expectations in check like with the Force Awakens teaser. additionally, I probably would've enjoyed Rogue One a hell of a lot more seeing those amazing shots and moments for the first time that were spoiled in the trailer all for the sake of generating hype at the detriment of your enjoyment of the actual film.

    Henry Buck got a reaction from Will in The Quick Question Thread   
    Yeah, the big downside with the 2CD release is just the sound quality. There were some hiccups in the production process that made some of the tracks, particularly in the latter half of the score, come out sounding very compressed and degraded. The source material is still in good shape - I believe that was proved by the remastering of one track for the "Musical Journey" CD in 2005 - but the production of the set garbled it. That said, if you're dealing with the roar of a car or plane engine, you might not notice much of a difference.

    Hi! Well, I think there are several who could swoop in with more comprehensive answers, but in the meantime: It's about 95% complete.
     
    The 2CD release doesn't include the two source pieces that were replaced in the Special Edition: "Lapti Nek" and "Ewok Celebration" (of which there are three, I think, versions, two of which were included on the 4CD Arista Records Anthology set). It's also missing an alternate version of "Leia Breaks the News," which is included on the Arista set.
     
    There are then a couple pieces which have never been released, and the recordings are believed to have been destroyed. These include the concert suite "Jabba the Hutt," another source cue from Jabba's Palace, and a six-second insert recorded for the Battle of Endor.
     
    But part of the "Jabba the Hutt" concert suite is edited into the track "Han Solo Returns" on the OST. Or on the Arista set, maybe.

    Henry Buck got a reaction from DarthDementous in SPOILER TALK: Rogue One by Gareth Edwards   
    One motif that I haven't seen any discussion of is the film's treatment of technology. It's faithful to the technical imagination of the 1970s, which seems quaint now in many ways. (Why didn't Leia just immediately upload the Death Star plans to Rebel Alliance servers all across the galaxy? Why did Obi-Wan have to physically shut down the tractor beam instead of hacking the Death Star's wi-fi network and doing it remotely?) The clunkiness of the 1970s is constantly throwing obstacles in the heroes' path. Bodhi can't get in touch with the Rebel Fleet because the communication cable isn't long enough. Jyn and Cassian have to alert the Fleet to open a special channel because the schematics are too large to be sent through normal means. I think it was totally self aware. And I loved that the Master Switch is a big, goofy lever.

    Loved it. New favorite bad movie. It was the cinematic equivalent of a raucous college party. Self-destructive and regrettable, but fun in the moment. Worth it alone for Vader's final scene.
     
    Minority opinion: I concur with Quint about Tarkin. I'm not bothered by the ethical implications of this Frankenstein monster. I just thought it was really cool to see a classic villain again. For what it's worth, I thought Stephen Stanton did a better impression of Peter Cushing on Clone Wars/Rebels, but I understand that they wanted to go with the same person for both the motion capture and the voice.

    Ugh what? The transmission(s) WERE beamed to a ship. The ship she was in was docked to the ship that 'received' the transmission. So you wanted the Tantive IV to be the receiving ship, giving away the fact that Leia is at the battle long before the very end, and to completely eliminate the amazing Vader in the hallway scene? 
     
    It's an argument of semantics and it's ridiculous and frankly pathetic. But it gives a voice to those who have nothing better in life to do than cry foul on the internet. A huge reason why I don't partake in internet forums anymore. There's far to many morons chatting "LOCK HER UP" and the real honest and valid discussion fades quickly into the background.
