    Ok, just received the reply from LSO!
    The symphony was never recorded!

    Beauty and the beast, 1991.
     
    The remake is definitely better. I know you're supposed to love this one because it's a classic and all that, but I just couldn't like it. The biggest problem for me was its pacing: some parts just felt too rushed, especially the father-Belle exchange in the castle and I think they could have done a much better job if they hadn't wasted so much time singing. At times, it felt like they had a checklist of things they had to get out of the way while they really should have been telling a story. Having said that, I really liked Paige O'Hara, although I'm still not a big fan of vibrato and my first impression of her was a YouTube video of her singing extremely operatically. Sometimes she was rather bland (as were most of the voices), but then at other times she was downright brilliant. Part of me still prefers the auto-tuned Emma Watson, but Paige is a much better and lovable speaker. I was always going to prefer Emma Thompson to Angela Lansbury, though, the Beast's American accent was annoying and the fact that I didn't know any of the other actors didn't help either, but even if I had known them, you can't outdo Ian McKellen.
    Now, the score. I'm becoming more demanding by the day when it comes to appreciating music, but the romance in this one is absolutely exquisite. I couldn't fully appreciate all the music because of the bad audio quality of the source file and didn't like all the action music, but will investigate the score as soon as I can.

    Hello everyone.
    I'm posting here the main titles for CORNERED! (2009), a horror film with Steve Guttenberg and James Duval.
    Nothing fancy, just a sound-design-y, atonal score. (my first attempt at that).
    The sequence is dialogue driven since we were listening to various newscasters announcing the news about a serial killer.
    (and that's why the music is simple and - I believe - serviceable)

    It will be a collection of "Johnny Williams" music from his comedy 1960's period.

    Nice to know that. I still miss the a good old track-by-track analysis, with slates, dates, what portions were used or dropped, etc. Kind of reminds me of Intrada's 2007 "Alien", one the best booklets ever written.

    I find that whole opening to be an amazing sequence, that immediatly sets up a tone that only the Indy movies have been able to pull off. One of my favorite details is how Wille actually stands in front of the movie title. It's just incredibly well done tongue-in-cheek
