  1. Awesome. Thanks for confirming that!
  2. Just a heads up. I am seeing indications that this music was not done by Zimmer. It's possible the trailer uses elements of the score and mixed them into the trailer-house-produced music, but in my circles I have seen other people attributed to the music by the company who created the trailer. Just trying to nail down for sure.
  3. Trailer was far too long. Over 3 minutes? Ridiculous. That being said. Looks cool! I'm in.
  4. Sounds far more promising than WW1984 did. Maybe I'll like this one!
  5. I mean. Like Aspect Ratios...it depends on the movie and the reason for doing it. Some things simply don't call for bright oversaturated colors, I certainly don't want everything to look like that. If it did, we'd all hate it. So yeah, sometimes "desaturated" colors are great. Sue me. Do I think it's done too much? Sure. Doesn't mean I hate the concept and sometimes it's done wonderfully. Ugh. You're one of those people are you? Lol. Just get a TV for every aspect ratio and you're good to go.
  6. Are you crazy? I don't have a dinosaur shaped TV! I want the image to fill my Millennium Falcon shaped television!
  7. How the hell have I never noticed this thread before? I love it. I also love all aspect ratios. Personally, my favorite is 2.35:1 but typically I just prefer the Director's intention, whatever that may be. I don't give a damn if it "fills my screen" or not. I hate pan & scan and I also hate when they add the sides back on to something that was framed and intended to be in 4:3. It's interesting to compare, but I would likely never watch the film more than once in an open matte format either vertically (2.35:1 to 16:9 or even 1.33:1) or horizontally (4:3 to 16:9).
  8. I've found some false info in GEMA before. Granted, I don't know if I can blame GEMA in the case I'm referring to as the film itself credits the incorrect recordings of certain songs in it's end titles.
  9. If you get crucified, then I'm right there with you. As someone who has literally never seen any other Star Trek content, and don't care to, the Kelvin films are great. Fun, Well-Acted, and Directed. I enjoy the hell out of them. I don't care if they're not "Star Trek" because I don't even know what that is. For me, they are Star Trek. lol.
  10. Maybe you're joking? But that's not at all what he's saying. He's talking about how much resolution and detail from 35mm, etc. fits into a 4K frame ("drawer") vs 1080 frame ("drawer"), etc. Essentially: The digital equivalent resolution of 35mm film isn't quite big enough to fully fill a 4K sized frame ("drawer") and is also too much to properly fill a 1080p sized frame ("drawer"). As far as Star Wars. I don't really care. I've watched the 4K fan version of Episode 4. It was fine. If Disney ever puts out the original originals...fine. But I do agree with this:
  11. Finally got mine in the mail today! What a nice surprise! Now I can check this score out. Haven't heard more than a couple seconds of it yet.
  12. No way to confirm confirm, but does the Work ID share significant similarities to the other cues?
  13. Yeah that's probably it. I don't see how something would get released from an actual label without going through the proper channels.
  14. We are also people with emotions and not robots and it's perfectly acceptable for me to think that Hans Zimmer is being an ass. We are only human after all. Also 'someone else has said something worse once' doesn't diminish stuff like this in my eyes. Both are bad. I don't have to think this is acceptable because someone else has said something worse.
