  1. Ugh, the last time this happened, we got the Psycho remake with Danny Elfman ape-ing Bernard Hermann. No thank you. Does it really matter who gets it? But I'll throw my two cents in...maybe John Ottman or Thomas Newman.
  2. Thanks, Luke! Okay guys, I think I ALMOST got it...check it out...

  3. I may at some point. Jesh. I just figure for now, I'd rather hear some of the music without the edits. There are some cues on it I really do want though, such as Anakin is Free. As it turns out, I looked at the complete cue list again, and it actually did give me most of the info I needed. Here's what I know so far...

  4. Okay, I just got TPM OST (my library apparantly alows us to take out CDs, this being one of several I borrowed last night). I'm loving it, but does anyone happen to know the chronological cue list for it (one that is like the one potsed for REVENGE OF THE SITH)? I know there's the *complete list* on the site, but most of that refers to the Ultimate Edition (which unless I can burn, I don't see myself investing in anytime soon, as it seems to me like nothing more than the purchase of a high quality bootleg) and not the OST. Here's what I do know... Track 2 - Duel of the Fates (Concert) Track 3
  5. Wouldn't this be "Grievous and the Droids?" The scene is when Grievous abandons the ship. Whoever created the chronological cue list properly referred to this as "Grievous Abandons Ship." Plus, there is no record of it being recorded, and most of it was cut from the film, with the "Escape From Naboo" music playing almost around the same scene, so it's a good bet that this was the original music for that scene. Hope this helps.
  6. Well, when Silvestri did the Mummy Returns, did he remain loyal to any of Goldsmith's material from the first film?
  7. Ender, my reaction to this news was identical to your own. Still, it's understanable, considering how badly Danny's score for SM2 was treated in the film. However, seeing as Silvestri is probably my favorite composer, I would not be at all against him being brought in.
  8. The end credits of the film lists who was responsible for the rescored tracks and what they scored. Aside from the CDs for both films, the SM2 DVD has been the greatest source. For example: In the music section, there is a shot of the COMPLETE cue list (although the alternates are missing, they are discernable from other spots both in the film, on CD, and in the doc). The documentary's background music also play NUMEROUS unrelreased/unused segements, which is how I came to hear the unused original opening for "Pizza Man" and realize that Elfman's version does play over Spider-Man's appearance
  9. Here's the way it apparantly went down: After the film had been scored, two crucial problems hit it, 1) Sony decided last minute to heavily re-edit the film before its final release and 2) As a result, temp tracking became an issue as well. Elfman was asked back to re-score the film, but declined, saying he felt the score was fine, as well as being firmly committed to other projects as well (Sam Raimi supposedly felt the same, one can only speculate how he felt about the re-edits). Several musical sequences were dropped entirely, tracked with music from earlier in the film or from the first fi
  10. Eastwood last year criticized RETURN OF THE KING as being about ?nothing but effects.? I don't care how good Million Dollar Baby is. The man is not the god of film the Academy seems to think he is.

  12. Jaws, without a doubt. The theme is great, but apart from the film, only in certain cues does the music do anything for me.
  13. It seems to be that way. I mean, just listen to what he says. He and George would actually discuss what was going to happen and argue over certain points as opposed to Rick McCallum who says, "Yes, George", when Lucas decides that a subplot involving Midichlorians is appropriate. I would include Kirschner in there as well, as he seemed to also stand up to George along with Gary. And Gary knows what's happening. He's seen the prequels and just from having worked with George before, he knows how it's all being handled. Lucas is now surrounded with a crew of yes-men who would sooner turn Anakin i
  14. Breathmask - http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/376/376873p1.html and http://www.filmthreat.com/Interviews.asp%3....inc&amp%3BId=8 The second is from Filmthreat.com.
  15. I just posted this over at Don's Diner on Superman Cinema and wanted to know what you guys thought as well... I just re-read both Gary Kurtz interviews (one at filmforce and another elsewhere that escapes me), in which he delves into some of the original details that were planned for Return of the Jedi following Empire before he left his spot as producer of the films. Such plot details include... - Sticking to the original plan of nine films. - Killing Han Solo. - No new Death Star. - Having Leia wind up becoming Queen of whatever remained left of the galaxy. - Making the Luke/Vader conflict r
  16. I haven't bought it either. Haven't had the desire to really.
  17. Is it just me, or did Varese's shipping charges go up? I could be going crazy, but I do not remember their shipping charge being so high ($6.50). Can someone help?
  18. Re: most of the topics... Score: It's great Williams was nominated, but somehow, I doubt he will get it. My personal pick would be the Passion by Debney, but I have a feeling it will most likely go to Finding Neverland. Here's hoping. Direction: If Scorsese gets screwed by the Academy again, then I just have no words. Only bile. Visual Effects: It's a crime that Sky Captain wasn't nominated. I didn't see Harry Potter or I Robot, but I thought Spider-Man 2 had great special effects and it gets my vote. Still, I would not be surprised if the award went to Potter.
  19. The Matrix Revolutions: Garbage. The worst ending to a major trilogy ever. Period. Superman III: A guilty pleasure, but understandbly, it is not a good film. Back to the Future Part III: Has much more heart than its predecessor; not as good as the original and arguably duller than the zany II, but still a great film on it's own. Return of the Jedi: Jedi actually used to be my favorite of the trilogy when I was younger. It's a bit lighter and doesn't mesh as well with the dark tone set by Empire before it. In spite of the problems, it still tells the Darth Vader story damn well, which is ultim
  20. Anyone else think that this question should be reversed?
  21. No one is saying that Neil. Just remember that for some people, Star Wars is a non-factor in their lives.
  22. I would write something, but Lord Maurizio just said nearly word for word my thoughts exactly. I'm not a fan of the changes either guys. But what will any of us get by whining and complaining about them? Let Lucas tinker with his movies. They're HIS movies. He could blow up Tatooine, put Jar Jar in the originals, and have Luke turn to the dark side. Star Wars is HIS shit. Instead of despairing over it, let's enjoy what we've got, shall we? Many of us still have the original versions. We have our 2-CD John Williams sets. I will reiterate what I've said before - if the fans had even ATTEMPTED t
