  1. Williams' Superman is a seminal masterpiece. Ottman's Superman Returns is the definition of mediocrity. There is no comparison.
  2. Star Wars Day? Has the board been reprogrammed again? A New Hope Hm, guess not.
  3. There's a theme in Emperor's Tomb that sounds a lot like the motif from Fast Streets of Shanghai in ToD. I'm not sure if it's a deliberate quote or not but sure sounds like it.
  4. Quoted for truth. I've had very, very short stints watching both Simpsons and Family Guy, I quickly tired of both. But I'm always coming back to South Park. This last run was great.
  5. I've felt that way about some other Goldsmiths I've picked up over the years (not Gremlins). But recently I listened through my whole collection, and even in the ones I never enjoyed all that much I found new worth in. One or two have even worked their way up to regular listening status. EDIT- Of course I'm right, Jay!
  6. Is the level of message board discussion really proportionate to how much people enjoy the release? I don't think so, personally, and don't see it as a very big deal. Plus, it's human nature to spend more time talking about what we don't have, or what we're looking forward to or expecting, than what we already have in our hands.
  7. I think both of those are just due to the nature that these types of releases aren't really new anymore, they're now the norm. Great music and great releases to be sure, but ones that we've come to expect now.
  8. Great music indeed. And Twilight Princess is even greater IMO.
  9. Masada is fantastic. The main theme is one of Jerry's best. I still need to pick up The Great Train Robbery and The Sand Pebbles from Intrada.
  10. I'm listening to Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb for the first time in a long while. Any fan of Williams' Indy scores needs to get this. It's probably a better Indy score than the last Indy score.
  11. This instantly became one of my favorite Goldsmiths as soon as I listened to it for the first time, I hardly knew anything about it beforehand. I remember posting on FB on my second or third listen, asking just what in the hell Jerry did to those cats to make them make those sounds they made.
  12. In the last week: The Cabin in the Woods- I'm not a horror aficionado, but I am a huge Joss Whedon fanboy, and I was thoroughly satisfied. Big congrats to Whedon/JJ Abrams protoge Drew Goddard, who actually directed it, for nailing his first feature. Mission Impossibe IV- Eh. Kick ass Giacchino score. The movie was in parts engaging, in parts tedious. The whole Kremlin sequence was good, and the double impersonation meetings in the Dubai hotel was extremely well done. Simon Pegg remains one of the most entertaining men in the world, no matter what he's doing.
  13. Ever since high school Patton has been one of my hands down, all time favorite films. One of the greatest biopics and war films ever made. The score is also one of my favorite Goldsmiths. Easy winner on both questions.
  14. John Takis has just posted on Facebook that Joel Goldsmith has gone to join his father....There is also a thread on FSM confirming it: http://www.filmscore...mID=1&archive=0 I'm in shock. That this would happen right after the wonderful complete release of First Contact, which he had a huge hand in making so great...
