    REMIXED & RESTORED: Jurassic Park

    So Hollywood director Steven Spielberg made a Steven Spielberg Hollywood director's choice? Got it. Hate on the director who contracted the composer and found a way to use the composed music to elicit the exact feeling the director, who hired the composer, wanted. This board is a good reason why classical music in general gets such a terrible reputation. You can't be nice about anything and rather have to interject your own nihilistic and complete fanboy-ish ideals onto everything. I don't listen to recording sessions and gleam over what was recorded and never used. If it's not in the film then it's the same as 12 frames cut off the end of a shot. It doesn't exist. If you choose to enjoy the music as written and recorded ONLY and ignore what is presented in the film then you have an extremely narrow mind because what wasn't used could be utter crap and you'd still stand behind it screaming loudly and proudly. Alternate cues are nice to have as a collection but both the original soundtrack and now the "complete" LL release do not include the music as presented fully within the film. I guess LL cares more about those who'll cry about mean 'ol George than about presenting what they claim to be doing. And for all the "expert" knowledge being spewed it is NOT a simple track-in from Journey to the Island. The timing doesn't line up. But yeah, keep telling us how smart you are and how beneath you anyone who doesn't agree with your head up your ass attitude are. The Rex WAS the hero. That's why the entire end sequence of the film was changed. And a hero deserves, and rightfully so go, a heroes fanfare. Enough of this garbage. I'm out. PS. What the indeed. This board is full of "how to edit your own specific playlist version of songs because what's released doesn't fit the film exactly as presented" threads. But again, your head is so far up your own ass you can't tell if it's shit you are eating or food you are shitting.

    Um, the "film version" is the version in the film. If we got a complete soundtrack of all the music for the film that SHOULD include the music that, you know, is actually in the film. And those whining that it's not better are only doing so because no matter who says what about anything if it isn't in the Maestro's original music sheets it will always be wrong to you. It's a triumphant moment that works perfectly as noted by the film maker himself who, you know, has a pretty damn good idea of what makes a film fantastic. There's no reason BOTH versions weren't on the LL release. But go on spewing your hate with nothing else to fill your lives. I'll have to edit the song myself so when I listen to the complete score I don't get disappointed each time I'm expecting the triumphant fanfare for the hero of the film.

    Sucks that there is no film version of T-rex Rescue and Finale on the LL release. It works much, much better than the original scoring. It gives Rexy the heroic fanfare she deserves.
  4. I have the Blu-ray. It is not. Nor on the 4K. Doubtful it will be on the 3D Blu-ray either. I mean they couldn't bother to put the Atmos audio track on the Blu-ray so why would they put this? Studios are stupid. 2nd Star Wars movie I am not purchasing and I own 5 copies of the OT on VHS.
  5. Have you discovered a place to obtain the "not available to Canadians" version? you can PM if it's too hush-hush for prying ears to discover.
  6. About time they announced! Since I can't make Chicago for my own 40th this will be my celebration to myself.

    John Williams' 2018 Concert Schedule

    Hollywood Bowl lists Movie Night for Sunday, Sept 2. Doubtful there's 3 Williams concerts this year as there have been for the past 2 years, if at all.
  8. Intrigued by the film. Hope Williams is involved. Can't wait for Indy 5 either. and this thread (like so many here) needs so much less of this.

    The Last Jedi vs. The Post

    Any A vs B poll that doesn't give you the options of Neither or Both is useless.
  10. Um no. It was as pretentious as Nolan insisted his film be in all facets to slap the audience in the face. The music was a major point my friend ripped apart as we were half-way through this BORE of a film and he broke the silence to question pretty much everything happening. Brilliant and Dunkirk are 2 words that should never be used together. Ever.
  11. Yay John. F the large lot of you!
  12. Signed. Though thinking about a spot for a cameo I think being the Master Codebreaker in TLJ would have been hilarious. He could have pumped up his own music cue to!

    Golden Globes live comments thread

    The music, like the film, was chaotic and insulting to the viewer. My friend was extremely vocal about how annoying and pretentious it was throughout. Both he and I are fans of Zimmer but this was a giant turd by Nolan and likely his direction towards the music as well. Just a horrible, horrible film with only a few things worth praising and the rest a giant slap in the face to anyone who's not a Nolan teet-suckling fanboy. It's pretty insulting to the thousands of British soldiers who saved 30,000+ stranded English AND French troops as well, rather than just Mark Rilance and a couple pleasure craft and commercial boaters.
