  1. Okay, here goes: BEST PICTURE The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Frost/Nixon Milk The Reader Slumdog Millionaire We can nix THE READER and FROST/NIXON. BUTTON wouldn't be bad, but it won't beat SLUMDOG or MILK. SLUMDOG has been getting more and more buzz lately, but somehow, I just don't think the Academy will award it here. It'll get almost everything else, but I think MILK has this one in the bag. SHOULD WIN: Slumdog Millionaire WILL WIN: Milk BEST DIRECTOR Danny Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire David Fincher, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Ron Howard, Frost/Nixon Stephen Daldry, The Reader
  2. As far as the best in terms of volume and quality: The LOTR Extended Editions The ALIEN Quadrilogy Panic Room 3-Disc Fight Club The Ultimate Bond Volumes There are also some films that are terrific special editions that have the just the right amount of features, without going overboard or being bare bones. The WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? 2-Disc Vista Series is one of my all-time favorite DVDs with just the right amount of extras, great menus, and an overall solid presentation.
  3. Wow, leave for a few days and the thread skyrockets! Has anyone else noticed that the opening of the "unreleased" part of "Indy's Very First Adventure" is still different from the film?
  4. Jeff confirms that the TOD End Credits on Disc 2 are identical to the album and that the "Return to the Village/Riaders March" does end on that odd note before the credits roll. Guess we'll still be missing that 0:25.
  5. Someone at FSM said this and I don't think it's been brought up here yet - Do you guys think that maybe the single release of RAIDERS was postponed BECAUSE the folks behind the set realized that "The Basket Game" and "Desert Chase" were edited, and are now going back to fix them in time for the box set? Yeah, it's a stretch, but it's no more ridiculous than all of the other unreleased material from the DCC album being present except for what was expanded. In short: Until we have official track times for the set and more news, all of this is speculation, nothing more.
  6. So judging by those track times, it appears that "The Poisoning" and "The Mummy Cave" are included!! Does this mean that the only unreleased Raiders music now is the Cairo source music?
  7. Is this a combination of "Escape in the Truck" and "Blasphemy/The Road to Berlin"?
  8. I don't want to get anyone's hopes up...but I think it's very possible we'll get 95% complete scores. After cutting down my iTunes lists of all the released material from my Indy tracklists, I've come up with the following: --25-26 minutes left of TOD unreleased. --26-27 minutes left of Last Crusade unreleased. This, of course, excludes alternates and source cues. Assuming that the interviews take up no more than 15 minutes (as speculated), we could also maybe get the concert arrangement of the Raiders March and maybe some other bits of Raiders (like Discovery of the Ark, if it's not on Disc 1
  9. If we are talking strictly about acting ability: Jessica Alba Keanu Reeves Jake Lloyd Halle Berry Denise Richards Regina King Dane Cook Paul Walker Lindsay Lohan Kate Bosworth David Hasselhoff Steven Segal Tara Reid Matthew Lillard Kristanna Loken I'm sure I know more, but I can't think of any.
  10. It's not one of Williams best sequel scores, but it's still great music and the release is about as excellent as all expanded Williams releases come these days. Chronological order, terrific presentation, great sound quality, etc. etc. Hell, the complete Arrival in New York is worth it alone!
  11. I'm in agreement with Neil on this one. Josh, you're right. Petty emails won't do the trick. However - respectable, friendly, and mature emails just might. You never know. Anyone who sent emails similar to what's been shown in this thread should be congratulated - you not only embarrassed yourself, but probably have given these people a poor indication of what we (the fans) are like.
  12. I can. It's a great movie. Batman Begins beats all of these films by a longshot. There's almost no comparison.
  13. TOD: Over The Himalayas Underground Heroics Water and Cliff Confrontation LC: The Portuguese Coast The Floor's On Fire! The Wrong Chalice/Papa Jones is Healed
  14. I believe that if FSM was to do for Indy what they did for Superman, the results would be the same.
  15. The only way to really do it and generate a profit for Lucasfilm is for them to release the scores in a way a la filmscore monthly's SUPERMAN boxset. Sell all three scores together at a high price to offset the reuse fees, make it a limited edition, and market the release date in advance so it will build hype. I, for one, did not expect the SUPERMAN release to go down the way it did. It sold out in a matter of weeks and in the first day, we crashed SAE's website. For a filmscore soundtrack release (even one as high-profile as Superman), that's almost UNHEARD OF. And hey, if it sells like craz
  16. I would imagine the theme to Back to the Future would be deadly, because every time I would hear it, I would feel like I had to get the car up to 88!
  17. Oh my. I just went on boxofficemojo.com and had a shock to my system. Take a look at this: RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK - Production Budget - 18 Million INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM - Production Budget - 28 Million INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE - Production Budget - 48 Million INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL - Production Budget - 185 Million 185 Million. KOTCS cost almost double the combined budget of the trilogy. And it's by far the worst of the four. ?????!!!!!!!!!!
  18. Here's the LC breakdown that seems to be causing confusion: THE GRAIL THEME is the motif heard during Donovan and Indy's first meeting, at the start of "The Penitent Man Will Pass," and during the finale when Henry Sr. and Indy see the Knight as the Temple is collapsing. It represents the Grail. THE KNIGHT THEME is the motif heard during Indy's first meeting with his father at Castle Brunwald, in "Ah, Rats!" when he says how his father is scared of rats, and it is the first theme stated after the main march during the end credits. It is also prominently featured in "The Last Knight." THE PAPA
  19. The first movement of Mendelssohn's 3rd symphony bears a striking resemblance to ANAKIN'S BETRAYAL (especially the beginning).
  20. The man composed the theme to Back to the Future. Along with many other great scores. Genius.
  21. Regarding missing music from HOME ALONE 2... --Source Music for the Plaza Hotel commercial. --Christmas Source Music in Duncan's Toy Chest (as Kevin checks out). --A six second insert from Kevin's Booby Traps (just before we cut to Marv with the Paint all over him). It should be noted that the first two above WERE FOUND by Michael Matessino during the re-mastering of HOME ALONE 2 for Varese, but were left off. Otherwise, every note of music is on the Varese set.
