  7. Hey, so I was thinking the other day that we don't really have a thread for TV shows that don't generate enough discussion to warrant their own threads, but you might want to discuss them when something important happens or whatever. Like for example, the other day there was random discussion of "Breaking Bad" buried in the "what was the last film you watched?" thread, that will never be easily found in a search. Of course the individual threads should continue, so I'll link them here. If I missed any let me know! http://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=9334'>24http://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=14990'>Battlestar Galacticahttp://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=6934'>Doctor Whohttp://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=14059'>Dollhousehttp://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=18143'>Fringehttp://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=16204'>Heroeshttp://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=9342'>LOSThttp://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=17571'>MythBustershttp://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=15084'>The Office (US)http://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=16850'>Scrubshttp://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=16367'>South Park I'll kick it off: This season of Big Love is excellent!

  8. She looks amazing, yea, especially with glasses
  9. For me its Giacchino's main theme to Jurassic Park Chaos Island, after listening to that score today
  10. Hello! This thread is to discuss the Last Jedi score as heard in the film. No spoiler tags are needed but you're welcome to use them in the early days now before it's opened wide. @Oskar has already kicked off the discussion, you can read it here, and let's continue it here!
  11. Did you all miss Publicist sharing that Roger clue already, and the discussion that followed because of it? As per this quote, it's hard not to revert back to Roger Rabbit.
  12. Bruce Kimmel, the head of Kritzerland Records, posts on FSM under "haineshisway". Bruce Marshall ("Mr. Marshal" on FSM) is just some guy. Not a label head lol. Anyway, the complete session leak of Roger Rabbit with all the alternates is only 1 hour, 50 minutes, and the three Roger Rabbit shorts are only 7 minutes each. It would fit on 2 discs EASILY. Unless they are contractually obligated to include the other composer's shorts on a separate platter from Silvestri's work, or they are slapping the OST on the third disc, still seems odd to me.
  13. His name is Bruce Kimmel, not Bruce Marshall. And that's a dickhead move to spoil another label's title like that. Why would he do that? And Broughton only scored two of the three Roger Rabbit shorts, Tummy Trouble was by Horner.
  14. Definitely. Not an "action masterpiece", but fits all other clues if the RR shorts spill things over to a third disc. I honestly would not be surprised if the total time would fit on two discs but they did three anyway, like their Great Escape.
  15. I'm a completist but I'll likely never have the time and money to track down every old rare, OOP item. I just hope every score he wrote I don't have on CD yet eventually comes back on CD before that format goes away entirely.
  16. The Intrada release already sounds fine, so its not like its any kind of massive upgrade or anything. It just, to me, feels fuller and warmer.
  17. Alan Silvestri - Predator (Varese) I've decided the Varese CD is better than either Intrada CD. I think Intrada had good intentions using the digital source recorded at the time, but digital recording wasn't exactly optimized in 1987 yet, and a 1987-era 16bit/44.1khz digital recording is just never better than a fresh modern digital transfer of a nice tape recording. Varese's CD sounds great, and they don't have the issues the Intrada versions had like overlapping cues inside tracks for no reason. And what a powerhouse of a score! Nice length too, you're at the end before you realize it. Alan Silvestri - Predator 2 (Varese Deluxe Edition) One of my favorite sequel scores ever. Takes everything from the first one and kicks it up a notch. The drums are more tribal! The action is more furious! It's longer! The themes from the first are reworked in cool new ways! I love this score a lot.
  18. The Star Wars prequels are at least unique stories, and didn't try to just mimick the beats of the OT. But those stories are so horribly realized on screen in just about every way, it ends up not mattering
  19. Yup. It's like Rian Johnson had no interest in anything JJ Abrams came up with, so just wrote it all off and told his own story. And JJ is likely to do the same thing right back to him in Ep 9!
  20. Yea, exactly. That's another problem with a show as a whole, it started out as a "fairly" light comedy set in a darker situation, but over time the comedy became less and less and they got more violent and dark and did more "social issues" type stuff and lost a lot of the fun. Crazy eyes went from comedic relief to a tragic character, multiple people have been killed off, etc Plus, my biggest complaint: Piper is the worst character! She is so full of herself, and constantly makes situations worse, and is a shithead to everyone she dates. The actress is good, but she should leave the show behind and move on to better things, and let the show become the ensemble show is basically already is.
  21. You know what? I more or less agree with everything you say. How about that.
