  1. Just purchased my tickets to A New Hope LTP with the CPO. Now only 11 months to wait.....
  2. I'd missed the part at the bottom where Williams is listed as being there. You'd have to think it will end up like the 80th birthday celebration where Williams picked up the baton for the Imperial March. Much more interested in going again.
  3. Where was it noted Williams as a special guest? The release I read simply stated it was Williams' music conducted by Newman, which is disappointing from the standpoint of going to see a Stones concert without Mick of Keith. Even if they are sitting and listening with you, still not the same. My travel plans might be altered by this.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. About time they announced! Since I can't make Chicago for my own 40th this will be my celebration to myself.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Any A vs B poll that doesn't give you the options of Neither or Both is useless.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. The film gets better each time I see it. Patiently awaiting the complete OST and FYC combination track order.
  17. Is there not a complete listing of all tracks in chronological order, including all source music?
  18. I'm confused about some of the tracks on disc 2 vs the presentation and track names on disc 1. Is D2-18 E.T. is Dying is presented in alternate form elsewhere on disc 1?
  19. That wasn't a joke. A joke is something funny that makes you laugh. That was a ridiculous statement made out of the anus in a lame and rather pathetic attempt at humor. Even worse, the joke falls flat on it's ugly face when it's Williams who "seems" to have a love affair with Ridley, and not the other way around. Further, as I pointed out, there's no humor to be gained by making such a moronic post about any connection for financial gain between 2 wealthy individuals. Most of this thread is just super creepy anyways.
  20. WTF does Daisey Ridley have to do with the estimated net worth of John Williams? Do people really think she's getting paid scale to be in a franchise which will earn over $5 BILLION at the box office, never mind having her likeness included in merchandise that will go on long after she's likely gone? I think Miss Ridley is doing quite alright for herself. I'd also highly doubt that estimate as well. Williams has how many film scores to his credit, let alone other compositions he's been compensated well for? Then all his performances and appearances. His royalties and so on. His home alone would be at least 10% of that estimate.
