  1. I just listen to the OST and the DVD easter egg isolated score. The suite on the Blue Max Tadlow re-recording is pretty sweet too.
  2. Flashed? Yeah, I get it. Everytime I post pics in the recent film purchases thread of used DVDs that I've picked up I get asked "but why didn't you buy the Blu-rays instead?" Answer: because they are much more expensive and hard to find where I live.
  3. It's small change. Besides if I sell three of them and the last one breaks...
  4. Not likely. I've already sold the six others I had (and I'm not even kidding) but decided to keep these as they are the cream of the crop.
  5. Very annoying that only TLJ gets this. Why couldn't they follow suit for TFA and TROS? Guess we have Rian Johnson to thank. Bad form JJ. You work Williams to the bone and couldn't even lobby for iso scores?
  6. Yes, I have a Toshiba Blu-ray player (multi-region for BD and DVD), an LG BD writer (external) and a PS3. I do plan to pick up a UHD 4K player or XBox One S (or possibly both) at some stage too, once I have a capable display. I also have two HD-DVD players, a DVD/HDD recorder, four Laserdisc players and two VHS recorders, but I doubt you care about those Where I live people who buy movies are considered odd, which makes me the king of odd.
  7. Mmm. Themeless. Moody. Atmospheric. Ambient. Howard Shore. It's all your fault.
  8. Well in fairness RC doesn't have to take on so many projects, it's their choice to do so. Greed perhaps?
  9. Which now begs the question, what percentage of each cue can HZ take credit for. Shit, we'll need a spreadsheet to keep track.
  10. Why no, hyping the score is much more important His ghost writers can do that other thing.
  11. The lack of deleted scenes on the Blu-ray release is...interesting. Perhaps Disney is hedging their bets in case they do decide to release an extended cut. 18 disc UK Blu-ray only set 26 hours of bonus features, I wonder if that includes the commentary tracks?
  12. So Disney coukld have given us full scores as isos for all the films on the forthcoming releases, without paying any reuse fees. Pity they didn't.
  13. New bonus feature from the forthcoming digital release of The Rise of Skywalker: The Maestro’s Finale – Composer John Williams reflects on his body of work for the Star Wars saga and shares insights on scoring Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Disney is set to release the Rise of Skywalker Blu-ray on March 31, with a digital release on March 17 https://www.slashfilm.com/rise-of-skywalker-blu-ray/ Note that this is a digital exclusive, it will not appear on the forthcoming Blu-ray releases.
  14. Specs released for ROS: https://www.slashfilm.com/rise-of-skywalker-blu-ray/ Bonus features include: The Skywalker Legacy – The story lives forever in this feature-length documentary that charts the making of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Pasaana Pursuit: Creating the Speeder Chase – Dive into the making of the movie’s epic landspeeder chase and discover how this spectacular sequence was brought to the screen. Aliens in the Desert – See what it took to create the Pasaana desert scenes, from the sheer scale and complexity of the shoot to its colorful details. D-O: Key to the Past – Explore the ship that connects Rey to the mystery of her missing parents and get to know the galaxy’s newest, irresistible droid. Warwick & Son – Warwick Davis, who played Wicket in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, dons the Ewok costume once more; this time joined by his son Harrison. Cast of Creatures – The team behind the film’s memorable creatures reveal the puppetry, makeup, prosthetics and digital magic that bring them to life! Digital Exclusive: The Maestro’s Finale – Composer John Williams reflects on his body of work for the Star Wars saga and shares insights on scoring Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. “digital exclusive” FFS!!!
  15. What about the case of the first two Alien films? Both got two iso tracks each on the Blu-rays, one of the complete score, another of the score "as heard in picture". Are reuse fees also not payable in the first case, simply because it's attached to the film (even though it wasn't the version that was released with the film originally)?
  16. I just thought it strange that they elected to included the MA one for TLJ. It's messing with my OCD. In any case, I thought post-2005 scores recorded in the US were prohibitively expensive to expand? Iso's seem to be a way around that (though admittedly somewhat flawed by the films editing requurements). I'd have settled for iso's on the ST as we have the OSTs and the FYCs. I miss the Golden Age of home video...
  17. Personally I was hoping (foolishly) for isolated scores for all 9 films, and fully post produced and restored deleted scenes in HD Also it seems Empire of Dreams is MIA That's what I plan to do

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will include audio commentary with director JJ Abrams on Disc One. The Bonus Disc will include the exact same extras found on the previous Blu-ray release. What we don’t know for sure yet is whether they’ll be the original Blu-ray (reviewed here) or the more deluxe extras found on the Blu-ray 3D package (reviewed here). [Editor’s Note: Sources indicate this will in fact be the bonus disc from the 3D Collector’s Edition, which includes previously retail and digital exclusive extras.] Star Wars: The Last Jedi will include audio commentary with director Rian Johnson and a MUCH welcome surprise: The Score-Only Version of the Movie that was previously a Digital exclusive. The Bonus Disc will include the exact same package of extras found on the previous Blu-ray and 4K version of the film (reviewed here). [Editor’s Note: Sources indicate this will include the Target-exclusive Meet the Porgs featurette.] And finally, the official details for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker have yet to be revealed. Here’s a look at the front cover artwork for each of them…[note: RoS still has placeholder art so not included] https://thedigitalbits.com/columns/my-two-cents/021820-1330
  19. So only one film out of nine gets an iso score? That is very disappointing. As are the expected other bonus features - no deleted scenes? Perhaps the feature list from the leak is incomplete. Also, they went for the expected fugly cover art:
