  1. I haven't missed anything. I have them all! But yes, I don't care for any of the big blockbuster things. Had it not been for my completist 'condition', I would never have bought them or had them on any want list. But some of the smaller things; I don't mind getting those in CD format too.
  2. I do. In file format (the one that was included with the Blue Box). But I need to have it in physical format. In fact, I own ALL of the titles on my want list in file format. But I need to have them physically, if I am to continue my completism regarding these artists and composers that I started decades ago. As you can see, I've been severely slacking off in the Elfman department the last few years.
  3. FIFTY SHADES FREED by Elfman. This is my want list at the present time: John Williams - Goodbye Mr. Chips John Williams - Stanley & Iris/Pete'n'Tillie John Williams - Superman IV: The Quest for Peace John Williams - Star Wars, Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Danny Elfman - The End of the Tour Danny Elfman - Avengers: Age of Ultron Danny Elfman - Goosebumps Danny Elfman - The Girl on the Train Danny Elfman - Before I Wake Danny Elfman - Fifty Shades Darker Danny Elfman - Fifty Shades Freed Danny Elfman - The Circle Danny Elfman - Tulip Fever Danny Elfman - Justice League Danny Elfman - Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot Danny Elfman - Dumbo Danny Elfman - Eleven Eleven etc. Danny Elfman - Men in Black International Danny Elfman - The Grinch Danny Elfman - Dolittle Elliot Goldenthal - Othello Symphony Elliot Goldenthal - Symphony in G Minor Elliot Goldenthal - A Midsummer Night's Dream Alan Parsons - The Secret Rammstein - Rammstein
  4. I looked through their catalogue, and alas I only found ONE item on my want list. So the deal is not worth it for me, I'm afraid.
  5. Yes. I've been aware of them for years. Sorry to hear them go. I see that they ship without jewel case internationally -- which is great, because it reduces some of the insane costs of shipping internationally these days. Perhaps I'll use this opportunity to FINALLY buy a new CD. I haven't done so in ages. Let's see if I find anything on my relatively small want list.
  6. It is. I see no reason why they would change the iconic poster art.
  7. No, no. The movie is great, one of the best that year. The score is just icing on the cake (great icing, though).
  8. If there's a filmic universe I'm in love in, I want to stay there for as long as I can. Which is why I prefer the extended version of ALIENS too, or the LOTR movies. But in the case of ALIEN, I prefer the original cut, so that's a counter-example.
  9. Most of the time, my colleagues act well, and there is a lot of space for each individual -- depending on which cinema is being used (varies from very small screening rooms at the distributor to using the Cinemateque theatre). It's a 'no-no' to take a seat immediately in front of another critic, for example, and there is almost always at least one seat free on each side. But I've experienced troublesome press screenings too. There was one time, during Asghar Farhadi's THE PAST (a mellow movie), where a young critic behind me decided to eat a couple of CRISP BREADS(!) during the screening. I mentioned this in the podcast we were recording afterwards, and a few weeks later I ran into that same critic at some event. He had heard my complaint in the podcast, and wanted to apologize. Also, some big films -- like STAR WARS or whatever -- usually has lots more 'press' than usual, so that's more like a regular screening, really.
  10. Hmmm. Let's do a rundown: SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY is the best one for me, I think. Powell managed to reference Williams while keeping his playful, more homophonic action writing. JURASSIC PARK III is good too, just for the sheer pleasure of hearing Davis with his dense tone clusters occasionally reference Williams' style, which is rather different from his own. Ken Thorne did an admirable job on SUPERMAN II and III, with a more limited and less skilled orchestra. Courage is even better than Thorne in the adaptation department, but obviously, that score has the advantage of new Williams themes to pull from. I've completely forgotten what Ottman's SUPERMAN RETURNS sounds like. I have both JAWS 3D and JAWS: THE REVENGE, but I find them rather harsh and shrill. As for ROGUE ONE, my hatred of that score runs so deep, you don't even want to hear my opinion. There would be lots of expletives!
  11. I agree with rough cut. There's something about the ritual itself, of going to the cinema. Film is always best in the cinema, no doubt. Of course, I'm lucky to be able to see films at press screenings, without annoying audience members, but no amount of home cinema I've seen (and I've seen a lot of fancy setups) have been able to replicate that.
  12. Not really. Although the action music in the film is fun, my main attraction is the exotic textures. Tracks like "Swimming" is what it's all about to me. I sampled the expansion once, and then deleted it quickly before it tainted my appreciation of the listening experience (which happened with Arnold's GODZILLA, for example). I have no intention of revisiting it any time soon.
  13. The extended version, without question. Gives much needed context surrounding the city's rise to the surface at the end; that it's about more than just giving him a "ride".
