  1. By the way, a piece of trivia is the Norwegian title of the film, which I always found clever. In Norway, the title of Spielberg's JAWS is HAISOMMER (literally translated as SHARK SUMMER). And the title for TREMORS was MARKSOMMER (WORM SUMMER). Neat way to tie associations between the two, I thought.
  2. This film is loaded in nostalgia for me. I remember we "screened" it on VHS for the entire class at some point in the early 90s. Our head teacher was rather dismayed, I remember, as she was rather conservative and didn't care for the violence. I saw it up again just last year, and it still holds up. I never checked out the Troost/Folk soundtrack, though -- I believe it was already available on a hard-to-find CD?? Or maybe it was a promo?
  3. SUGARLAND EXPRESS for the first poll question. None for the other. So I can't really vote. I'm hoping someone gets to SUGARLAND EXPRESS in my lifetime.
  4. Can't you be happy in Belgium? I certainly am, every time I go there. Great, beautiful cities. Fantastic beer. What's not to like?
  5. How it came. While that is sufficient for me, I wouldn't be opposed to creating a....let's say 50-60 minute playlist album out of the oodles of material on these discs.
  6. Dissonant stuff! But Goldsmith always manages to make it interesting. I have to prepare mentally for that, though. I have no idea about various releases. I have the Varese.
  7. It's OK. Coplandesque, as one would expect. But I hardly ever play it.
  8. Oh, be my guest. I have what I need -- the original release of the first, and the re-release of THE FINAL CONFLICT. Was never a big fan of 2, so I sold it years ago. Might re-acquire it digitally at some point.
  9. 2 and 3 have been re-released on CD, just as the first, but maybe even the re-releases are getting hard to find these days, I don't know.
  10. There's a funny link I've been thinking about. Both Prowse and Arnold Schwarzenegger were bodybuilders that had early film cameos as muscular bodyguards in films by auteurs - Prowse in Kubrick's A CLOCKWORK ORANGE and Schwarzenegger in Robert Altman's THE LONG GOODBYE. But except for Darth Vader, their careers and success went in very different directions.
