    HanZ, of all people, has the power to influence this shitty practice, which suspiciously enough has become worse under him.

    This is one of my main problems with HanZ: taking full credit when others have done quite significant contributions to the composing of the score. That, and his tendency of extreme self-plagiarism.

    Yeah... The Sherlock scores were solely credited to him, despite Balfe helping - and that probably costed Lorne an Oscar nomination (he'd be the first RC alumn to do it if he got credited as co composer for Sherlock, doing so one year before John Powell).
     
    Pirates 4, Lone Ranger, Rango, all of them are mostly Zanelli, I think. On the other hand, BvS is credited to him and Junkie, but apparently he worked way more on that score than Holkenborg, which was busy with Deadpool.
     
    Conclusion: being credited on something usually means next to nothing when it comes to these RC people. lol

    JW: You were the chosen one! You were supposed to write a Star Wars-like lighthearted, swashbuckling orchestral score, not something experimental and hard to listen outside of the movie! Bring balance to the film music industry, not leave it in Zimmer's hands!
     
    Hildur: I HAAAAAATEEEE YOOOOUUUU!
     
    JW: You were my sister, Hildur. And I loved you.

    Why no, hyping the score is much more important

    Featuring a full orchestra ? What for ? 
     
    Joke aside, if there are people interested, there’s nothing wrong  I even think it’s a good idea as it’c continuing the trend of LTP concert.

    JTWfan77 reacted to Thor in What's Desplat's most engrossing score?   
    'Engrossing'; I'm not quite sure what you put into that in this context.
     
    But my favourite Desplat scores (i.e. those I actually own in my digital collection) are GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING, THE PAINTED VEIL and L'ENNEMI INTIME. His work for Audiard is OK, and THE GHOST WRITER was very good in context (perfectly spotted). Beyond that, I tend to dislike Desplat more often than not. He's a bit of a 'one trick pony'. Extremely overrated and overused.

    Please can this thread not devolve into another whine-fest about the OT? It is what it is.
     
    Perhaps a multi-disc Mike Matessino 9-film soundtrack box set is in the works? It could happen.

    From: The Digital Bits:
     
    All right, we’ll have more to report tomorrow on The Bits, but I wanted to jump in here quickly this evening with word from retail sources that Disney will release Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga as a 9-film, 27-disc 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray box set on 3/31/2020.
     
    Here’s the thing: We know for sure that Best Buy will have an exclusive SKU (here’s a link to a Best Buy Canada listing for the title). What we don’t know yet is if the entire box set is Best Buy exclusive, or if Best Buy will just have exclusive packaging. But that obviously means Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will street on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 3/31/2020 as well.
     
    This set does not appear to include Solo: A Star Wars Story (which is already available on 4K), nor will it include Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, so Rogue One will likely be available on 4K separately that same day.
     
    We suspect that this box set is a Best Buy exclusive, and that all of the individual films will be available separately (and more widely) on 4K/BD combo as well.

    Re use fees are never needed to be paid for any synced to film situation.  Re use fees are only a thing for soundtrack albums

    Re use fees are fees you have to pay when you, well, re use the music recorded with union musicians for another medium.  IE, they were paid to record music to be heard in the film, if it it re used for a soundtrack album you have to pay them again.  You don't have to pay these fees for an isolated score track.  It's still synced to the original film.  It's the original use, not a re use.
