    Cindylover1969 got a reaction from JW collector in Ecoutez le cinéma John Williams release - The Legend of John Williams 20CD box set   
    Just so those can't get the set can have a taste of this title. (Warner Bros. owns the National General Pictures library it looks like...)

    Which is why we need Mike. Disney would listen to him, since he has connections in the industry, including John Williams himself. And he could explain them even better the value (financial or otherwise) of having a definitive presentation of 14 of the most beloved film scores of all time.
     
    Again: Disney won't listen to a two dozens of film music diehards. For them, we're even more insignificant than those guys petitioning Disney to remake The Last Jedi a few years ago. But they may listen someone with connections and contacts in the industry.

    Also I'd like to address one of the films biggest controversies - the banquet scene. 
     
    In the film the characters are presented with a selection of....unusual plates, now an audience that is perhaps ignorant of the cuisine of India would take this as being the norm. Snake surprise, eyeball soup and chilled monkey brains are so readily enjoyed by the guests that someone who doesn't know that Hindus are primarily vegetarian wouldn't think twice about what was happening on screen. Now this was such a big problem that the film was banned in India for some years because of it. But in the script there was a scene following the banquet that would of clued audiences in - 

     
    Now I don't know if this follow up scene was filmed but if this brief exchange had happened during the banquet instead it probably could of helped inform the audience that things weren't right, and certainly delt with one of its biggest controversies.

    Temple of Doom has really grown on me.  I've come to appreciate it more over the years, and judge it on its own terms rather than as a sequel to Raiders. The opening musical number, and the entire opening scene in fact leading up to the plane escape in particular, is fantastic.  It's certainly not in the same league as Raiders, and while I personally prefer Crusade, I'll give TOD points for originality and taking a risk.  It's also one of those instances where a reappraisal makes the film look better in comparison to more recent entries in the series.
     
    I've also come to like Willie Scott more, and now actually find her less annoying than Marion. 
     
    As to whatever sensitivities people may have developed regarding this fun flick over the years, to paraphrase the brilliant Stephen Fry, "You're offended? Well so f*cking what"?

    I remember sampling this score when it came out, and it didn't do much for me. It was Silvestri doing his best Herrmann schtick (which he's good at, I'll give him that).
     
    Still hoping for premiere releases of more pre-ROMANCING THE STONE scores. Or stuff like SHE'S OUT OF CONTROL. Or PAR OÙ T'ES RENTRÉ? ON T'A PAS VU SORTIR. Or OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE. That kind of stuff.

    What Lies Beneath is a DreamWorks/Fox co-production. (So maybe it got through because DreamWorks has the US rights.)

    Alan Silvestri – What Lies Beneath (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Deluxe Edition CD)
    UPC: 888072574021
    Release Date: May 3, 2024
    Regular price$ 20.00
    Expected to ship the week of May 3, 2024.
     
    What Lies Beneath (2000) was a first for filmmaker Robert Zemeckis: a serious, adult-minded ghost story starring Michelle Pfeiffer and, in a rare turn (and twist) as the villain, Harrison Ford. Originally developed for Steven Spielberg, the film was a Hitchcockian throwback of slow-burn suspense, with gorgeous Vermont locations supporting the A-list talent.
     
    Scoring What Lies Beneath was, as always for Zemeckis, his long-time collaborator, Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump). Silvestri conjured up a dark, moody soundscape of suspense, orchestral violence and eerie beauty for the supernatural hauntings and real-life threat that is closer than the heroine realizes—ably recalling the spirit of the classic Hitchcock–Herrmann partnership, with Silvestri’s own vernacular and modern dramatic sense.
     
    Varèse Sarabande released What Lies Beneath as a 9-track, 30-minute program at the time of the film. This long-awaited Deluxe Edition premieres the complete score in a 25-track, 60-minute program, with new liner notes by Daniel Schweiger interviewing screenwriter Clark Gregg.

    Varese never said "horror"; they said "scary" and I think WLB definitely qualifies there.
     
     
    Huh. I'm not a big Silvestri fan in general but I really enjoyed this score in the film itself; he is channeling his inner Bernard Herrmann big time:
     
    I confess I never bought the original Varese album, because it was one of those that was *under* half an hour long! So I'm interested in this...

    Wonder if this release bodes well for a BOT4J 35th anniversary expansion coming this July?
     
    There's been quite a few instances where pairs of Cruise/LLL expansions are released within the span of a few months, likely due to Cruise approving their artwork at the same time (and he's a busy guy, so I imagine that only happens once or twice a year).

    Also, for the record, the end credits suite is compromised of various cues edited in post-production.  They are:
    Main Titles (0:00-1:28) -- Crossfade to:
    The Kitty Waltz (0:00-1:18) -- Crossfade to:
    To the City (0:00-0:59) -- Crossfade to:
    Let There Be Light (0:00-3:08)
     
    Total Time:  6:52 Minutes.

    I should know because I have heard this piece countless times.  It was the only piece of Folk's score I could hear in the film without any of the dialogue until now.

    Will they go for the Kelly McGillis/Paramount triple and expand Witness?  It's too bad there's not enough John Morris scoring in Dirty Dancing to make a release  viable.
     
    Here's comment from one of my Twitter mutuals: "It won’t feel authentic unless every third track is Highway to the Danger Zone".
