  1. That just means some opinions aren't as valid as others, like with literally anything else.
  2. Yes. This show aired during my last couple years of high school / first couple years of college and I loved it! I was beyond thrilled to buy the album when it finally came out (and get a signed copy no less!) and parts of it still get a lot of play in my car.
  3. I did too! Brighton, Colorado, that is.
  4. No one really did much in Season 8.
  5. Sounds neat! I may have to try something similar one of these days.
  6. Is Horner's AVATAR expandable or would that be prohibitively expensive?
  7. ^ I agree with all of this and rank them thusly: SW ESB TPM ROTJ TFA ROTS AOTC TLJ There's not a single one I dislike, but my love for some is much greater than for others.
  8. No, not really. Lots of remakes (and sequels for that matter) take something key about the original and change it up, making something new and different, but familiar enough to bring the fans of the original back. There is something to be said for this. Some of the negative reviews are no doubt from people who expected the same things as you. Others probably hoped for something fresh and have given their negative reviews out of genuine disappointment.
  9. John Oliver had nothing to do with the Special Edition.
  10. I was about to say, I always dig through eBay listings that have actually sold for an item to get an idea of what I can make back. Sometimes it's 50% of retail. Sometimes I've made three times what I paid or more.
  11. How the fuck do people find the score to Star Wars boring? And Return of the Jedi more interesting? What?
  12. Of course we don't. It was as groan-inducing as the rest of the movie. Partly this. The whole movie feels like an insult to the ones that came before. It doesn't come across as deconstructing things out of love like Galaxy Quest, but out of genuine spite, like some SNL sketches.
  13. That’s because he didn't. Olly killed Ygritte. Jon just held her as she died.
  14. Why'd you respond more than a year later?
  15. ^ My answer as well. Who are you? Jerry Goldsmith?
  16. Never owned this one. Ordered along with The Sand Pebbles which I was also missing.
  17. You're just full of ridiculous opinions, aren't you?
  18. Perhaps? Has a "temporarily out of stock" item ever just suddenly switched to "out of print?" Ever?
  19. Well strictly speaking, MIddle Earth is just Europe, not the whole world. Think "Mediterranean."
  20. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade has been my favorite film since my early teens. I don't really know why. It just hits me in all the right ways somehow. The humor works for me and the whole thing just makes me feel young and happy. I wholeheartedly agree. Raiders and Doom are great -- Doom has the best recording of the Raiders March -- but the Crusade OST is just flat out brilliant. It's one of the very first soundtrack albums that I actively sought out as a teenager and for the next couple years, it was one of very, very few soundtracks I wanted to listen to from beginning to end (along with LOTR). Crusade is also one of the first soundtracks that made me realize score releases typically aren't complete. I noticed right away that "The Boat Scene" and "Wrong Choice, Right Choice" weren't present. That didn't much diminish my enjoyment of the album, but I was still overjoyed to see both pieces released a year or two later. I find your assessment of Skull very interesting @Thor because this is a score that I think proves album producers don't always know best. The album has LOTS of boring bits, yet omits LOTS of great material. The complete score makes it obvious to me that a much better album could easily have been assembled. Hell, it could have been shorter than what we got and still been better.
