  1. King Solomon's Mines (1985) I bought the bluray (along with its sequel Allan Quatermain and the lost city of gold). Well, it surely isn't a very good movie. It's a bit entertaining but I had it in my mind from my childhood as something better. I enjoy though the Jerry Goldsmith score and especially the theme which I like almost as the Indiana Jones theme. One thing I don't like about the score though it's that he used a Ride of the Valkyries variation as the Germans' theme.
  2. Hello. I wanted to ask a technical question. My replies in a personal conversation keep merging and I don't want that to happen. Let's say a person reads my last message, then I write something else and my reply is merged with the last one, so the person doesn't see my last message. Isn't that so?
  3. Sorry if it has been mentioned before (i haven't really watched this thread): Have you @Jay done any spreadsheet for the first 2 Harry Potters?
  4. This is among my favourite 5 scores of all time and it just has been released as a complete sheet music score by Omni! https://omnimusicpublishing.com/product/danny-elfmans-batman-returns-full-orchestral-score/
  5. 1. E.T 2. Hook 3. Schindler's List 4. Superman 5. The Empire strikes back
  6. It's from Kino. They don't do iso scores.
  7. 2 pieces of news: for whoever already bought Kino's Nixon and Shout's Earthquake, there are replacement programmes due to out of sync audio in the extended cut of Nixon, and wrong aspect ratio of Earthquake. Secondly: The Secret Ways comes in Bluray from a 4K scan of the original negative. (i hope that means that a cd release is imminent!) https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p=16521083&postcount=31930 This will be the earliest Williams film available on Bluray.
  8. Well, in the film I hear it only as source music and nothing more... Although from what I remember some motifs from it are used later in a dramatic context.
  9. Just for everybody's information, BATMAN has a brand new audio remix with new effects and no inclusion of the original mix. (edit: Oh, I see it was mentioned earlier) Also, I'd say I prefer the old blurays based on comparisons like this in which the new one has black crush: http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/659/picture:4
  10. here's a review of the bluray with screenshots of the TV version as well. that one is in 1.33:1 ratio. https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Earthquake-Blu-ray/232090/
  11. I think Shout's Blurays are usually Region A locked.
  12. NONE BUT THE BRAVE is coming from Warner Archive: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p=16418496&postcount=11004
  13. Can anyone provide timestamps for the Van Helsing motif that I just read in the liner notes, which is in "Grave trampling and the asylum", "into the crypt" and "van helsing's solution"? (I just got my cd )
  14. EARTHQUAKE is coming in a collector's edition from Shout on May 21st!

  15. I just noticed that if you take the first 2 phrases of Rey's theme and put them under the first 2 phrases of the force theme to sound simultaneously they perfectly fit. I don't remember, is there any instance in TFA or TLJ of such contrapuntal statements where the 2 themes sound simultaneously?
  16. If it's an expansion I'd love a Nixon expansion, or else I would LOVE a Johnny Williams unreleased score!
  17. I'm not sure about this film as I don't know it so well, but I usually prefer the theatrical cut, as there's a reason for cutting some scenes in the first place.
  18. The Paper Chase from TT is cancelled! It's coming from another label, but we don't know which. (so, no iso score option unfortunately) https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=314694 In other news, Nixon theatrical cut is released for the first time on Bluray by Kino, on May 21st, in a 3 disc set that will contain both cuts https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/posts/4704561/
  19. Apart from the new sound, this doesn't include anything that isn't in the blue box, right?
  20. Kino announced they have Heartbeeps! (unknown date of release) https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p=16073458&postcount=28188
