  1. Is it just me, or does this film look a little too grey, fresh, clean and synthetic?
  2. There's distortion in places on Revenge of the Sith - especially in Battle of the Heroes in the end credits. It sounds like static or the sound of the mix distorting when it's too loud.
  3. The first score release last year garnered a lot of praise and attention online and that was also praise for a physical cd. It would make sense that something as beloved as the HTTYD series would get a physical release in limited numbers knowing they'd sell to a larger audience than the typical film score CD enthusiasts!
  4. This is Williams giving The Speeder Chase some much needed representation after JJ snubbed its use in the film. The motif for that track is pure action-adventure and when I heard it for the first time I actually teared up thinking 'Yes! This is what I've wanted for so long!'.
  5. Hmm... I don't get why they don't release them concurrently or at least bundle them in some collector's edition.
  6. Anyone heard anything about a HD rerelease of Skyward Sword's OST? IIRC, the other games were treated to new OSTs upon their HD release...
  7. I think there's an aspect of adventure, discovery and danger, and a yearning to strive towards better ideals - Star Trek's music captures that, but here's a selection of tracks that I associate with space: Star Trek Voyager Main Theme Alien Main Theme Star Trek Beyond Yorktown Theme Wall-E: The Axiom Star Wars - Imperial Attack (Escape Pod section) Star Wars Princess Leia's Theme Star Wars The Force Awakens - Arrival on Takodana Cowboy Bebop : Space Lion
  8. The DCEU is now the DUNC Detective Universe of Non Cinema
  9. I live in Australia, all international purchases are prohibitive. Shipping costs the same as the price of a CD and more meaning a single CD from Varese Sarabande could cost me well over $70 for a $17 title. For this reason, it's always difficult to justify buying one cd from LLL or Intrada or Varese. It's gross and unfair why I have to pay double or triple what my US or UK comrades do, and now that fate is worsened for Europeans and non-EU customers. When something is a limited edition, you take the risk of purchasing it with a chunk of your paycheck or holding out for a time when it's more convenient to buy at which time it's gone out of stock.
  10. I think season 3 was a setup for the eventual host uprising. I agree with sentiments regarding the season as a whole, though, and thought it was a little too contrived and seemed to be contained to the one city. Hoping this coming season gets things back on track.
  11. Sad to hear - I was hoping one day his insights into the Disney SW films would be released.
  12. For better or worse, I've had empty or near-empty theatre experiences several times. After the busy opening weekend, the theatres are mostly devoid of life especially during the middle of the day during a school term.
  13. Leto looks like Steve Carell and Pacino looks like Will Ferrell.
  14. Does anyone else, like me, find that they don't care about all this trivial stuff relating to the film, and the only thing worth getting excited for is the score? I think it was a different feeling when Star Wars was returning in 2015. Don't get me wrong, I love Indiana Jones.
  15. I'm glad to see the response has been largely unanimous across the board, and I must say I feel disappointed for Whittaker. Bring on Michael Sheen!
  16. I haven't thought about it until this thread was bumped. Can't imagine listening to this score on its own.
  17. @Tom Guernsey The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Up are perhaps some of his least subtle work!
  18. Strange to see the dislike of Desplat. All three are today's finest film composers and all three have hits and misses. I love Powell's lush orchestrations, Giacchino's themes and Desplat's attention to the small details and orchestral sensibilities.
  19. A bit of what feels like a recycled score going on. Zero themes worth a damn, Inception-esque rhythmic action and recycled soundfonts. Quite possibly the worst MCU score. Balfe has done better, but this sounds phoned-in. I wonder what Desplat would've done...
  20. Is it a Sunshine pun?
