  1. Then you bypassed a lot of movies.
  2. What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    The main theme of Georges Delerue's 'To Kill A Priest' - a movie depicting political/religious struggle in communist Poland as sung by Joan Baez ( guess whose side he is taking). The film, featuring Christopher Lambert as Father Popieluszko, is important to many polish people (presumably the only ones who saw it) and Delerue's high-strung musical comment (at least in its main title) borders on the same intensity as Williams' BOTF (or Morricone's 'Causalties of War' or Horner's 'Glory'). The late 80's were a fertile ground for composers giving political statement, it seems. And they all lept to it.
  3. Mercedes-Benz Arena... This is pretty much is THE reason to never watch one of those in Berlin.
  4. So this is finally a legitimization of watching 'Handmaid's Tale' beyond the premiere episode.
  5. Most of us listen to that stuff on the street and not in secluded hi-fi environments, so i don't see what harm a little loudness does. Generally the sound field is dramatically enlarged in the new releases, meaning you hear instrumental depth and detail mastering and recording techniques in the 70's could not cover. And i have listened to enough music in my life to differentiate between pure bullshit (the mastering of the original 'Matrix Revolutions') and discreet modernization ('Jaws 2'). What i read from the posters above me is idiot hyperbole.
  6. Though the Timeline process probably wasn't helped by a bad screening and a panicked studio. Donner would have signed off the JG score without ado but after the movie became a potential misfire (what should have been a surefire hit, Crichton bestseller and all) Goldsmith was an easy target. It's not that tyler wrote a more action-y score per se.

    Like Chuck Heston and Karen Black! and the nun that even 'Airplane' could not top.
  8. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    It's rather awful but that's kind of the point: has all the imprints of those 70's Universal disaster 'classics'.
  9. The official Smart Phones and Tablets thread

    Does devices and add-ons cover a variety of free escort services?

    Is it the time of the year again for.. ?

    Le Mepris - Georges Delerue Though nowadays hardly anyone remembers this old Godard old meta war horse (the age old battle between arts and business) about the tribulations of a screenwriter whose marriage to Brigitte Bardot goes to shambles, the role of Delerue's score cannot be underestimated. A young Scorsese was impressed enough by the impassioned commentary the composer weaves throughout to put the central 'Camille's Theme' into his own 'Casino' very prominently. But there's more: fateful strings that beat James Horner abound and the concise running time (15 minutes) prevents the bloat we are so used to nowadays.
