  1. I would love to hear more tin whistle in scores. Ocarina too.
  2. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    If they were bothered to reveal something like this in the trailer, I can only conclude that they have bigger and crazier "surprises" reserved for the film.
  3. Michael Giacchino's Zootopia (2016)

    I guess these articles better answer Mr. Big's question above. They are really "over-promoting" this picture and its score though. I've seen more articles about this film, and now its score, than what I usually see for this genre.
  4. Caught Inside Out the other day for the first time. I thought it was alright but it wasn't until the final act where it really started to work for me. Boy when these guys want to get my tears dropping they sure know where and when to strike. A solid concept and dare I say the best movie they've made in the 2010's so far, imo.
  5. I keep them. I really can't part with my CDs even if all they do for me is fill up my CD shelves. Sometimes it feels simply great to look at them sit up there and remember the day I bought them, how it felt like to listen to them for the first time, the frustrations I may have had when I realized a cue I wanted was not present, etc... That's priceless. Besides I can always salvage stuff off them in case the engineer of the expanded version had gone super-nova with peak levels and loudness while mastering the CD.
  6. The Hayao Miyazaki Retrospective Thread

    6.5/10 Well, I managed to read through the whole thing and that doesn't happen very often when it comes to reviews. Excellent work! I'm totally with you on all the points though this being one of my childhood favorites I would give it nothing less than 10. Nostalgia always wins!
  7. Michael Giacchino's Zootopia (2016)

    Or into his track titles at least - in some form.
  8. Michael Giacchino's Zootopia (2016)

    It appears that Giacchino's might have been working on this one for quite some time now: http://www.a113animation.com/2015/11/michael-giacchino-will-score-disneys.html "....the score has been carefully written thanks to the talent of the great composer Michael Giacchino, with complex sounds and also world music that fits perfectly the film's atmosphere." And I thought he said he was taking the rest of the year off.
  9. JWFan James Horner Listening Party

    I actually don't think I can visit any of his works right now - that will make me think of this incident more than the quality of the tune. Though I have to add that the "End Credits" cue from Braveheart was the first piece of music that came to my mind upon hearing the news. I guess listening to that score won't feel the same from now on. On a side note, all this time I was hoping Horner would turn up in his office any moment, grunting that his damned parachute got stuck to some ***damned tree all this time, etc, etc... if only... It is going to take a good while for me to get over this.
  10. Michael Giacchino's Jurassic World (2015)

    With all these crazy titles, I am surprised their creative juices ran out for the 22nd cue. Unless of course... it is so overt, its covert.
  11. They are putting out the soundtrack album of an animated movie about a month before the film's opening? Seems odd.
  12. Michael Giacchino's Jurassic World (2015)

    LOL. They sure ain't running out of whacky titles even when the writing schedule's quite tight. Curious how G and his team come up with these.
  13. Michael Giacchino's Jurassic World (2015)

    ...as well as Inside Out. Though they could be placeholder images.I took a look around that website and I understand it is designed and managed by a fan? If so then it is easily the best modern composer fan-site I came across till-date.
  14. Well... as long as he is not pulling another "Mirror Mirror" on us.
