  1. I'm curious now. Does anyone here have that? Those exist by the Kanagawa Symphony Orchestra. Pretty sure there's a CD release of that, but I cannot find it on the internet right now. Anyone here who can help out?
  2. Cool! Very cool! Here's to hoping (they don't get sued).
  3. Watched this Saturday evening with my family, which included my very picky Lion King enthusiastic mum. The cinema was packed and there was a lot of excitement and applause going on. We all thought the movie was pretty well done and it was certainly an evening well spent. (Still... I like The Jungle Book better and am more looking forward to Mulan later on. And, apparently, TREASURE PLANET!!)
  4. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hnJyL-CHMCKKUV4R7ERS1LXOBJgyikTy I've got a vague memory that the one I've got was done by @GoodMusician after I requested it, but I might be wrong there. I myself have combined and split tracks at will here and there, with little regard to how they were recorded. For example, my "Over the Himalayas" ends early; before the spooky bit for the introduction to the Indian village starts. That part I merged instead with the next cue in "The Starving Village", which seems to flow together beautifully. In theory, I suppose these two tracks should've been one; but with the tone changing so drastically midway, this split seems to make the most sense to me. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ErTbnRl0dCv2CR8BjuQScIu4TdjNt4Df I do something similar with "Water! and The Bridge", which ends right after the British fanfare. "Return to the Village and End Credits" then starts with the happy/relieved music right after. My reasoning is again similar: The music flows well together, but the resulting track is too long and changes pace drastically. The first bit is extremely intense and exciting, while the denouement is basically the exact opposite. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1UZfGv3uLetrdmxRzH43gcSOBUb7t_7S1 https://drive.google.com/open?id=173RRl743lw0mGE40N0qZaWP60ro7Cpvh
  5. Someone once made a version of Map that includes the film version AND the alternate in one. That's my favourite! I wonder what people here would think of such an approach.
  6. Sometimes they do make things better. Especially when it merges similar-sounding short tracks from different parts of the movie. On their own, they might not make much of an impact; but grouped together, they can. Even some of the micro-edits do work well. But more often than not, they're silly and cut out the best bits. Shame, really.
  7. Finally!! Only thing missing is a jeep of some kind. The original, smaller LEGO Ideas version did have one and I think that added a lot. Hopefully they'll release that separately then...
  8. I'm no expert here, but... Lair was pretty ambitious, no? That one is still my favourite non-film score I think.
  9. I do like OST track combinations to be maintained when they make musical sense, such as "You Are the Pan". Those two really do fit well together.
  10. For me, it has a really nice variation on Hedwig's Theme that isn't found anywhere else.
  11. In addition, how about: "Ugh, Vines! (Alternate)" from Indiana Jones 4. "Prologue (Alternate)" from Hook. "The Firebolt (Alternate)" from Harry Potter 3. "Sail Barge Assault (Alternate)" from Star Wars VI. "Prelude and Main Title (Alternate)" from Superman.
  12. Michael Giacchino, if IMDB is to be believed.
  13. And that's the truth right there! (Or at least... part of it. )
  14. "Better" is a big word. But "seeing good overcome evil against overwhelming odds" in the media inspires me to keep doing the right things myself, even in difficult situations.
  15. Yup! And (apart from musicals), those are exactly my favourite ones. Especially adventure.
  16. Nope, definitely not. They often feel artificial and fake to me. Even where they seem more realistic, I've already got real life to show realism. I like being inspired to see how real life could be better than it is. I agree with @Chen G.; that does indeed sound very tragic.
  17. I like to be inspired by the media. Sometimes that means being educated by it. Sometimes that means being entertained by it. "Immersion", for me, comes from that inspiration. Dark, dreary and negative content does not inspire me. Therefore I always keep feeling detached from that sort of media.
  18. Here's something along the lines I was thinking: 1941 The Battle of Hollywood (consists of *???* expanded edition tracks) End Credits (used as basis for "March from 1941") A.I.

I've done enough for today. May continue again some other time.
  19. Ah, gotcha. In that case: I'm interested in both.
  20. There is a difference? That's indeed what I was getting at... Well, I'm trying now. Let's see how that goes.
  21. Very cool! But shouldn't Coruscant and Naboo be swapped around for TPM and AotC?
  22. Hey all, Is there a list somewhere on which tracks on the various OST CD releases are concert suites rather than in-movie tracks? Most are fairly self-explanatory, but sometimes it's really quite fuzzy. Any and all helps would be welcome.
