    Poltergeist II is not a bad score at all. The opening cue is fantastic. Karol

    It's an enjoyable film too. Karol

    It is my favourite Silvestri. Having said that, his music in general is rarely well served by expanded releases. His craft is absolutely solid but there is no real architecture to his storytelling. It's a far cry from the likes of Horner or Goldsmith who had an impeccable sense of architecture. To be honest, even Williams, for all his brilliance, can't touch these two in this department. Karol

    We have a splendid Tadlow recording. It was a perfect solution and it is the end of this subject for me. Karol

    Well it does and doesn't. You seem like a clever educated bloke who can tell things apart. But will an average audience member? Karol

    I'm not a fan of what you'd call a historical film...mostly because they're all lies...one way or another. It's what happens when you have to tell a coherent "three-act" story based on real events and be faithful to those said events. Pretty much impossible and thus renders the entire genre pointless. History is better served by non-fiction books. Fiction is more honest in cinema. Karol

    Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park back to back. The first one is action adventure score with a wilder/darker jungle material on the fringes whereas the second one is a dark and wild hunting horror/monster music with fantasy/adventure elements on the fringes. The first one has better memorable/iconic crowdpleasing highlights but the second one is a more satisfying listening experience in its entirety. Karol

    I wouldn't disagree with @Chen G. and @KK. But there's a place for films like this as well. Not everything needs 10 layers of meaning. Sometimes simplicity is just the best way to go. Karol

    I watched it first on the opening day and it didn't work for me that well. Then went to IMAX and realised "oh this is what they were going for". And then I watched it twice on the 4K Blu-ray. It does help the transfer is absolutely stunning and the film being shot "for real" really adds to this experience. It is not my favourite Nolan film. Far from it. Think going for PG-13 was a cheat still. And there's something about the very ending that feels abrupt and at odds with the rest of it. But yeah, it does get better for me. I enjoy the dryness of it. A lot of historical films get on my nerves with their overt sentimentality or "on the nose" ideological backdrop. So this one was refreshing in this respect. Karol

    Dunkirk, oddly, gets better with each viewing. Karol
  11. So it's bad because you were expecting something else? I liked it precisely because it avoided fancy visuals. It's more interesting and original. There's nothing more unsettling than horrific stuff happening in the seemingly mundane world. Karol

  13. I watched the new Suspiria remake not long ago. It is a surprisingly good movie with a personality of its own. It doesn't just retell the same story but also takes a completely different approach. It's not perfect by any means but might be a new favourite of mine. Good stuff. Karol
