  1. Didn't say it did. Weird that that's what you took from what I said. Oh well.
  2. Still great after all these years. Signed CDs available from LLL this Tuesday. Unsigned CDs on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Say-All-Battlestar-Galactica-Live/dp/B0941B4Y82 For anyone who didn't see the live shows or catch it on youtube, these versions are certainly quite different at times and may take some getting used to. On the other hand that means getting to dig in to some 'new' BSG for the first time!
  3. Just started listening. Big Elfman vibes!
  4. Nice! This actually had two CD releases scheduled for release back in 2018 before its distribution fell apart, one for the score and one for the songs (with two Bear tracks), so hopefully that score release will be forthcoming. https://www.filmmusicsite.com/en/soundtracks.cgi?id=66510 https://www.filmmusicsite.com/en/soundtracks.cgi?id=66475 This is one of the best cover images for a score CD in history!
  5. I see in your list, some titles from 'Rest Stop: Don't Look Back' which was Warner distributed. 'All That Remains' and 'Trapped' are also from the first 'Rest Stop'.
  6. It's so close I can almost taste it. To think that this next time last week I wasn't going (had hoped that London might reappear) and now I am going to experience a weekend of John Williams live in person for the first time. Wow. My bank balance may have taken an unexpected hit, but in the end I couldn't let the maestro pay a visit to Europe and not be there.

    Count me in. Last minute decision to attend but thankfully I've managed to get tickets and I'm all booked up.
  8. Indeed. Their connection is one of the reasons why this film (in my mind at least) is a good fit for Bear.
  9. 10 LLL releases for me this year, plus 2 on the maybe list... Pick of the bunch for me is the Disaster Movie Soundtrack Collection - never owned any of them before, 2nd hand prices were ridiculous so this was an unexpected delight.
  10. This was great! A much more satisfying end to a trilogy than other performances seen in December... Part 1 - 20th October 2017 https://www.royalalberthall.com/about-the-hall/news/2017/october/photos-and-reactions-michael-giacchino-celebrates-with-a-very-special-birthday-concert/ Part 2 - 18th October 2019 https://www.royalalberthall.com/about-the-hall/news/2019/october/exclusive-pictures-david-arnold-and-michael-giacchino-face-off-in-hope-of-settling-the-score/ Part 3 - 20th December 2019 https://www.royalalberthall.com/about-the-hall/news/2019/december/exclusive-pictures-our-first-ever-christmas-variety-show-with-michael-giacchino-and-friends/ Plus, who knew David Arnold could sing?
  11. I came across the above on youtube where this video from 2017 makes an interesting case for Rey being a Palpatine. When it came to the bit about the music I wondered if/when anyone from here had talked about the connections between the themes and was pleased to find this thread! It does of course seem to be unlikely that Williams was given pre-emptive knowledge of Rey's heritage before he wrote her theme, although it would be interesting to get a definitive answer from the man himself.
  12. Got to see this at Wembley Arena on Thursday. Couldn't turn down the chance to see Elfman perform live and he didn't disappoint. All the singers were great, Catherine O'Hara and Ken Page also reprised their roles from the film. The film is a bit light at only 76 minutes so they packed it out with a bit of a suite beforehand set to Tim Burton's original sketches and artwork, a Sandy Cameron led violin medley and an encore of Elfman performing Oogie Boogie's Song. Elfman's voice sounded great but also it was great to see him really get into the performance physically, inhabiting the character so well. All in all, a really fun night. You could tell that lots of people in the crowd really, really love this film - plenty of cosplay!
