  1. I saw the film years ago and enjoyed it. Goldsmith's score has a nice theme and some nice quieter material during the later parts, but that's about it; I doubt I'm going to be interested in having more of it.
  2. Yeah, the Skull theme does little for me either. I mean, the A-section is a nice spooky motif, but the B-section loses it, and it starts meandering. I don't like Irina's theme either. Ironically, I actually enjoy the second part of Journey to Akator more than most of the score, and that's not good. That's before you get to the utter snoozefest that is almost all of tracks 11-15.
  3. Some of my favourite scores are for films I've never seen. Anyway, TFA is way better than KotCS. The latter really only has a few highlights for me, and I have a feeling that even Jungle Chase wouldn't have the reputation it does now if JW had put the whole thing on the album to begin with. TFA isn't perfect, but there's more to consistently enjoy, and it's a better film by miles.
  4. That's the bit that confused me at first in the breakdown - I assume that's the bit with the low key version of Han's theme as they bring the <name of chemical stuff>. I thought... I'm pretty sure that's not on the album. Normally I'd have been disappointed that it wasn't on the OST, but I watched the film about a week or so after this announcement.
  5. I'm pretty sure that my last 3 CD purchases (Enola Holmes, Wild Wild West, and this) all had CD text. The only flaw being that all of the track titles had '<Composer> / ' in front of the title, which is a bit of a faff to remove.
  6. I find that most of this type of scoring could be achieved very easy just using some library music. Most typical horror/psychological scores like this aren't really adding much to the existing scoring world, IMO. What I'm usually after, in true Thor-fashion, is the highlights, where the composer's actually come up with something interesting for the odd moment here and there. Of course, which moments those are, are unpredictable, so you want all (or most) of the music to start with.
  7. Don't know where you're getting Hook from, but I think you've got the rest right - some really good stuff won't be ready in time for BF, and the first few months of 201 could be good. But you don't need a tentpole Williams score to make a good BF.
  8. Absolutely yes, if it's causing a ripping issue then a replacement is needed. I'm just talking about fussing over purely cosmetic problems.
  9. Yes, but it seems that some people go rushing for replacements at the smallest cosmetic issue, especially if it's a JW score. It doesn't have to be perfect.
  10. Meh, this sort of thing is why digital releases feel so much easier. CDs get scratched occasionally in the mail, and I have cases whose teeth are half-broken.
  11. I'd be surprised if #3 got the same treatment, as I understand the album is nearly complete as it is, and I think it plays really well. Definitely want one for #2, especially as someone mentioned that they thought that the FYC wasn't complete. The fact that Solo is getting a complete release so soon after it first came out gives promise that perhaps we could at least get a digital version.
  12. I have the Newton Bros' score to a horror movie called Hush, and it's mostly just ambient wandering, with a handful of highlights that drew my attention in the first place. Bly Manor is already available digitally anyway.
  13. Bruce, when you start acting your age (whatever 'old' is) on this forum, whatever you're perceiving from me will stop. You're easily the most childish poster I've ever seen on this forum.
  14. It it were made by a 10 year old, I'd tell them to grow up.
  15. Can bruce's parents come and pick him up now please? (please, someone tell me he's not as old as he says he is)
  16. Nah, Thor has a maturity that bruce could only dream of.
  17. Then phew, no one's forcing you to buy eventual expansions. Stop moaning about others wanting them.
  18. Most of his albums are just a bunch of cues on a CD, without a lot of rearranging that I can see. Finding Nemo has 39 mostly short tracks.
  19. We've already got one Thor to handle; we don't need another reconceptualisation fanatic around here
