  1. Thor have you seen the extended cut which runs for about 3 hours and is available in an Arrow Bluray?
  2. Malick is one of my favourite directors too. Haven't seen this yet, but I'm planning to. But most of all I'm so looking forward to his next movie about the life or something of Christ. Imagine that Malick movie with a John Williams score! I think it would be something sublime!
  3. The River just announced by Kino for USA.
  4. I would ask if he he's interested in and has found elements for the totally unreleased Williams scores (besides Storia di una donna that has been found), and if he has, how he would go on convincing Williams to release them!
  5. I have seen this film once, perhaps 10 years ago, but I don't seem to remember anything of it.
  6. I edited my post. it's really a music & FX track. Unfortunately i don't have the bluray with me because I don't live at my home this year. I live in another city due to work. it was released on December of 2013. Wow! Has it been so many years already?! https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Long-Goodbye-Blu-ray/80397/
  7. I have the Bluray with the isolated score (well, really a music & FX track), but i haven't really listened to it to see if there is something there that isn't in the Quartet release.
  8. Ah, now I see. Well, yes, perhaps some examples could be written like this. Williams' music is sometimes complex that even that would be difficult. (like in the above first example I quoted from A.I.).
  9. They are melody and chords (full harmony), but I guess I went too far with it, staying true to the original thing. example from Rosewood:
  10. well, apart from the melody and the thematic unity chapters, they are not one staff examples. They are 2 or 3 staves detailed musical examples, thats it's obvious are not transcribed by ear. Here's an example:
  11. They could be regarded as such, but I don't think I would get away with it. The majority of the examples doesn't come from published material but from unpublished one....
  12. I don't think there is a chance. I'd like to publish it as a book in English, but there are so many written examples (and studios involved), that getting the rights would be a nightmare.
  13. Thank you! As I said, it will be in Greek. it's: The film music of John Williams (1975-2018):Melody, harmony, formal archetypes and thematic unity. It's 248 pages, incl. bibliography.
  14. I have finally finished my dissertation (since January) and I'm now in a state where I am waiting for my defense. Now with the coronavirus, everything is closed (including universities), so it seems I'm gonna wait for a while..
  15. Yeah, me too. I have the Criterion bluray. I prefer it over The Three Colors trilogy. * * * Fail-Safe (1964) "American planes are sent to deliver a nuclear attack on Moscow, but it's a mistake due to an electrical malfunction. Can all-out war be averted?" In the beginning I was bored a bit but thought to give it a chance till the end since it's so highly regarded. The second hour was quite suspenseful with the action taking place in only 2-3 rooms. Highly recommended! Wow!!!! I honestly have it in line to watch it tonight! Talk about coincidence!
  16. Ok, i listened now to the 2 different versions (not from this expansion so i cannot comment on that), and you're right. It's not a different composition but it's not an alternate take either. it's different orchestration! When we say alternate take, i assume the section is exactly the same, just a different recording.
  17. I haven't listened yet to the expansion but i remember it was a totally different composition. I'll check the sheet music too. there is an insert there that replaces some bars.
  18. Ah really? Didn't know about that. Thanks. I am almost sure this has an alternate section. are you sure they are just different takes?
  19. Does any European usually order from music box records? I'm thinking of ordering this from there, along with 4-5 other Williams expansions, to avoid customs.
  20. yeah, i also love some very long films, but I meant that given its subject i wasn't sure I could watch a film of such length. So, it turns out i avoided this film like the plague for years, and.......I was right. It did absolutely nothing to me. i was bored to death, also i slept for half an hour during the 3rd hour (). I wonder if i should watch Ran or Yojimbo or something but I'm afraid the results will be the same. (I had watched Kurosawa's High and Low and remember liking that very much)
  21. Has anyone seen Seven Samurai (1954)? I'm about to watch it since it's considered a milestone of world cinema, but I don't generally like samurai films and.... 3,5 hours???
  22. The minister of health just announced the closing of all schools and universities nationwide for 14 days in Greece, as a precaution measure!
  23. Although I'm not very keen on Williams' concert works (I prefer his film music), I would love a Jazz Piano concerto.
  24. I vote for Nixon. Hope it's paired with the other 2 Stone films for a box-set.
