  1. Managed to grab a stalls ticket. The above tweet from the lso might give hope for more dates, or maybe not...
  2. The film was OK. If I was younger and hadn't seen similar/better films I would probably rate it higher. The score on the other hand is fantastic. The choral work is great, reminiscent of Da Vinci's Demons. Plenty of variety in this one, not sure whether it beats 10 Cloverfield Lane for me but we'll see after a few more listens. Apparently a fourth Cloverfield movie will be released nearer the end of the year. Would be nice if Bear continues with the series.
  3. Well, I went through the entire set in just over a week and it was a lot of fun. Barring the Spielberg albums my favourites were American Journey and Summon the Heroes. That said, there is so much to take in that I'm sure that some of the others will gain in appreciation on repeated listens. I think the Gershwin album was pretty cool and I knew nothing about his work going in although I had heard the name. Anyway, the set was money well spent as far as I'm concerned having only owned the Spielberg stuff separately. Is this all the Sony albums that have been released? Also, does anyone think a collection of the Philips stuff is likely or possible? If you get it at that price you are very lucky!
  4. The Bear McCreary Thread

    I was just about to post this myself! 10 Cloverfield Lane was pretty great and this film is possibly in the neighbourhood of Europa Report so I'm expecting good things from Bear here.
  5. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    Nice little sale. A.I. is down to $25. I went for that along with Stepford Wives and Passion of the Christ.
  6. Yep. I think this is what often happens with these type of card slipcase boxsets. One of the drawbacks of not getting the original albums.
  7. The booklet is nice and thick but I don't think it is anything special in its own right. There is a 5 page general overview on Williams career titled 'John Williams - Working Musician and Celebrity Composer' by Steven Ledbetter. This was also in German and French since this is the EU edition. There're also a few pictures that feel familiar (probably reused) and the rest of the booklet is simply the tracklist and album cover for each album.
  8. Received this today. As someone who only owned the three Spielberg albums this was a no brainer. I'm going to go through it in order. Some stuff I'm familiar with and some that I don't know what to expect at all. Quite exciting really. Plus the Box looks pretty damn nice on the shelf!

  11. Nice to see some love for Colossal. The finale always gives me goosebumps and when I finally saw the film it was great to see that it worked great there as well. Also, don't worry, I think Outlander Season 3 OST will be coming out fairly soon.
