    Who's the most famous person you have met?

    I've seen Danny Glover, Alfonso CuarĂ³n, Emmanuel Lubezki, Jeffrey Wright, Rami Malek, and John Doman in person when I worked for the Tribeca Film Festival, but I actually met and talked with David Costabile, the actor who played Gale in Breaking Bad and who currently co-stars in Billions. Lovely, down-to-earth chap
  2. True that! Maybe I should have said, "At the time of the 90s..."

    Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Live to Projection Concerts

    I would have given a kidney just to see/hear that! Also nice to see that they restored most of the original End Credits music, if not all of it
  4. Finally had some time to gather my thoughts about this music, which I call a masterpiece of melodic dissonance. In hindsight, I'm amazed by how much free reign Goldenthal was given by the filmmakers. With the exception of maybe CETK and snippets of Images that I've heard, this level of experimentation was rarely heard in Hollywood at the time, and certainly not these days. As often happens when revisiting a great (or long) score, one becomes aware of little themes or motifs that were not noticed before, but were always lurking underneath. Apart from the love theme that I already knew, it was cool to discover that Dillon was assigned a theme, and realize that there was a recurring theme for the Sulaco all this time, heard in Main Title, The Wreckage, and Wreckage and Rape. And, as also happens, one comes to appreciate musical arcs from the film that were truncated by the OST, and here there is one really good arc, starting with It's A Long Sad Story/Clemens Dies and ending with (the full) Explosion and Aftermath. In short, I'm just ecstatic that Nick Redman, Mike Matessino, and LLL made this music available to us in complete form the best thing that can happen with this sort of release is that it helps sway opinions about the score's diversity (or lack thereof)

    The Official Varese Sarabande Thread

    I understand it to mean that the admin has inside knowledge. Remember how just before Total Recall was reissued, he asked how many score fans would be excited by a 2-disc Total Recall?

    The Official Varese Sarabande Thread

    Well, the admin did reply at one point that he doesn't think any of the "Big Three" candidates for expansion will be in this batch

    The Official Varese Sarabande Thread

    There's a guessing game going on at the Jerry Goldsmith Online Facebook page, with the admin encouraging fans to "think smaller" than Air Force One, Small Soldiers, or U.S. Marshals

    Vangelis' Chariots of Fire vs. Blade Runner

    Blade Runner, without question. Although I was introduced to Vangelis' sound via the Chariots of Fire album (and grew to love it), Blade Runner's music just exists in perfect symbiosis with the images. It's almost like Vangelis left a part of his nervous system with that score. Too bad only Chariots of Fire received an isolated score I also love Missing! That main theme works like gangbusters

    The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    A prediction for the mystery title that just occurred to me is a complete Apocalypse Now. "Meh" for some people, but it would imply that LLL now has access to the American Zoetrope archives, and that could lead to complete Godfather scores, Dracula, etc.

    Dune (1984)

    I purposefully haven't sought out the fanedits, but my recommendation would be to watch the theatrical cut and then splice in the introduction and "water of life" scene from the Alan Smithee version. Oh, and get rid of all the voiceovers
