  1. It isn't a matter of appreciation, it's just the idea that these sets weren't any form of long-term investment, they're something to fill out the market. Look how amazing and positively marketed and received the LLL Williams expansions have been and wonder how so much more positive and resounding it would be to have the same treatment for Star Wars, scores that are more iconic than any of the other expanded scores. Not repackages or remasters, full-blooded expanded sets that celebrate the music as it was and should be.
  2. Not if you ripped it to FLAC first!
  3. I might buy ESB, but I will save my money for the expanded sets when they come. On the original release or the remastered? 😉
  4. I found Shape of Water to be a more enjoyable listen overall than The Last Jedi, but there are specific cues in Williams' score that are what I live and breathe for.
  5. Remasters of the First 6 Star Wars Soundtracks Coming May 4

    Not surprising, it was only a matter of time before Disney hit that 'Milk it' button. It's easier to slap new artwork on the cover than it is to invest in something like expanded sets. Disney = Hackfrauds
  6. I have been skirting with the idea of buying the blue box for a while, but if they choose to release a standalone score for the first film then that shall be a more enticing and economic choice!
  7. Doesn't go anywhere? The score develops three or four central themes that intermingle and grow organically as the narrative progresses. From the escape sequence onward, Desplat juggles all of them in interesting variations that are often quite beautiful.
  8. Yes, such an odd comment. The Shape of Water is a brilliant score, one of my favorites from last year.
  9. Cinematic Universes and endless sequels mean one story lasts years now.
  10. Harry snapping the Elder Wand was disappointing. Deathly Hallows established the importance of wands and the connection between their owners. In the books Harry repairs his own wand with the Elder Wand (the only wand that could do so) and then agrees with Dumbeldore's portrait that its power should die with Dumbledore and to replace it in his tomb. Nope, the film is too long already, gotta snap it to wrap up the story right now.
  11. Star Wars Prequel VS. Sequel scores

    AOTC > Every other score.
  12. 42 hours and 30 minutes will suffice for me.
  13. What? Each of the directors maintained a working relationship, were briefed and had constant consultation from Rowling, the direction the series took and the quality of the films we got is entirely down to that collaboration, and in many cases it was Rowling who had the opportunity to improve her own work.
