  2. When I was saying good things are coming I was not being hyperbolic. We approached John about expanding this and he was enthusiastic and excited about it. The cool thing about working with him is his studio does it all. He oversaw the sequence, chose the alts and demos, and mastered it. Having this DE tie in with the book was an added plus.

  3. The former producer liked hiring a guy who brickwalled everything. Cary and I work with folks who level properly. In the case of this, 5 Cat Studios oversaw the whole process. John is a joy and knows what he wants.

  12. I've received it, good fellow. Now, I'm clearly biased with this one, because it is my favorite work of Mr. Kamen. But truly, this release is quite amazing. There isn't a HUGE difference in overall sound quality from the previous release, but it is definitely a rounder, fuller sound. There are quite a few pieces in which little details are more apparent. ie, all of the Music for the Merry Men, in which the dulcimer and Renaissance roots are very crisp. The treat here is having completed sequences that have been missing over the years. The new music really elevates the program, and illuminates

  14. The BrickLink webstore, mostly! It's mostly reassembled from LEGO's Harry Potter collection: the body is from Cedric Diggory; the head is from a recent Dumbledore; and the bald hairpiece is from Ernie Prang. Even the "baton" is Voldemort's wand! The metallic gold statuette appears in a number of sets. I considered adding the cloth tuxedo tails from the CMF Professor Flitwick minifig (which I do have), but they weren't all that visible, and the texture difference between the cloth and plastic didn't look great. Still, it's an option! Seconded! Mari

  17. And there is of course the opposite way. In The Witches of Eastwick I personally would have prefered Williams' composition for the ballroom scene. I almost hate what James Newton Howard did to Tschaikowski's wonderful ballet music. But it more or less in line with what the movie did to the story.

  23. I dislike the movie, but you can never EVER go wrong with Gotterdamerung (and a bit of Parsifal thrown in there for good measure). Nothing even comes close.

  25. Finally this afternoon, our friends at the excellent 4KFilme.de website have discovered new pre-order listings from online retailers (including here and here from jPc in Germany) for The Lord of the Rings: Motion Picture Trilogy and The Hobbit: Motion Picture Trilogy in 4K Ultra HD. We expect the discs to include both the theatrical and extended versions. Note that these are distributed by Universal in Germany and the street date is listed as December 3. https://thedigitalbits.com/columns/my-two-cents/093020-1200 All right, moving on... I mentioned The Lord of the Rings

  26. There's a famous story of how, at a pitch meeting for the film of AMADEUS, the writer recited the storyline, to which one "suit" replied: "That's fantastic! Now, who's going to do the music? My favourites would be: 2001 2010 FEARLESS EXCALIBUR ROLLERBALL THE ELEPHANT MAN

  27. SW Squadrons does seem to have a bit of unreleased music... there was at least one file I've come across that has material that's not been in a video game before (the full ending of Spare Canister Caper from AOTC). There are a ton of files so it's going to take a while to go through all of them. EDIT: Strange, I noticed some minor SFX in that cue. I compared it to my YouTube edit and they are exactly the same. I noticed something similar in Battlefront 2 last year... it's almost like they're taking files from my channel and just porting them into the game.

  28. Nope. Every cue that used this theme went unused in the final cut of the movie, which is a shame, it's a very touching theme.

  31. Of course a child might/would say something LIKE that! It's ONE effing line! What's the big deal? And, you correctly portrayed the knee-jerk reactions of medi But, the film itself has ZERO to do with 911( how can you compare two planes crashing into buildings, with an alien invasion aimed at eradicating the human race!?). It's about superpower imperialism. What happens.when the conquerors are conquered? What happens when invaders come across diseases they have no imm unity against.? You really expect me to click on a link with the tag " post-9-11american-cinema"?

  33. Sorry to hear it. It stands as a towering beacon of the 90s in my book. The 'Enya'-style parts, the love theme, the action music -- and the variations thereof. It added to the stupendous, visceral feel of 'being there' and a string of 'mini movies', typical of Cameron. I don't care diddly-squat if the Celine Dion-performed song version of theme is a cheeseball of gigantic proportions; there is so much else to this score. I must have seen the film some 15 times over the years. Whenever it's on the telly, I can't escape it. I'm instantly drawn in.

  34. Definitely not. I think AMISTAD is a wonderful score (especially on album), and I think the film is vastly underrated. Probably seen it some 7-8 times. But TITANIC is a bonafide masterpiece - both film and score - and deserved every award it got. Hosting the concert here in Oslo that played the theme (with choir) was a privilege, even if it took place while everyone else was in Vienna to see the man himself live.

  35. I listened to this this morning and I really do love it. Jerome Moross quickly became one of my favorite composers just in the past 6 months. I recommend giving it a shot if you've never heard it:

  36. I know what you mean. I like several parts of Nixon and Seven years in Tibet, and bits and pieces of other soundtracks, but on the whole I thought he was burnt out. Same 2005 -2010 after Geisha. Luckily he recovered again splendidly with Tintin and War Horse.

  37. I'm beyond thankful in the age of the decline of CD, that this was made available through Varese. It makes me wish that Solo had received a CD release too.

  39. This release is a great coup @BryonDavis, congrats to your team for making it a reality! Are you able to talk about how this project came together? Powell seems remarkably gung-ho about getting his scores expanded this year! I wonder if the spare time during the pandemic has allowed more composers to work on projects they're ordinarily too busy to produce.

  40. Indeed. Never understood what people's issues were with this. I guess I can understand it if you're a hardcore Godzilla fan, and the film was too radical a departure from the design or tradition of the old movies, but personally I never gave a toss about that. As a monster flick, it's very good!

  41. Great score, although only enjoyed in its original promo presentation of 49 minutes. The film is massively underrated, IMO. I prefer it over any and all of the preceding films, even the original Japanese ones (well, the ones I've seen, anyway, I've never been a big Godzilla fan, really). Loads of great little "mini movies", i.e. setpieces in the style of JURASSIC PARK at times. Fantastic build, like Emmerich always does well. But obviously also moments of 'hokeyness'.

    Film Music Is Dead.

    So what? He still pisses over the head of the majority (if not all) contemporary film composers in terms of pure musical creativity and talent. Not to mention the understanding of film language in terms of dramatic needs. It's fine to like today's film music and finding reasons to believe it's as good as ever (I'm on the opposite side). But I find rather pathetic to put these reasons as a kind of overarching apology, like you're doing here. If preferring to listen to well-crafted, thought-out and thoroughly composed (written!) music means that I'm a reactionary, well, call me this way. Better
