    Brundlefly got a reaction from Mr. Who in Villeneuve's DUNE   
    I was like "Who is that actress?", because her filmography has never really made her stand out or given her a chance to use her potential.
     
    I had to make sure that I hadn't taken any drugs, because the experience was so transcendent. This is an absolutely imposing spectacle which, nevertheless, has nuances to offer that blockbusters are rarely able to.
     
    However, it was way too short. It just ended in the middle. I could have watched Part II right after that. Five hours like three hours.

    I'm totally fine with filmmakers attacking the MCU, but if I were Villenueve I'd wait until my movie actually makes good money before I criticize movies that regularly make a ton of money; not to mention before I risk alienating their large fanbase.

    Brundlefly reacted to Thor in Your stories of how you met John Williams   
    I also "sorta" met him during the concert itself, I remember now. When he received standing ovations at the end, everybody applauded, but I gave him a thumbs-up instead. Since I was sitting very near the stage, he locked eyes with me and gave me a thumbs up back. I think that's as close as I'll get.

    Brundlefly reacted to Yavar Moradi in 2021: Most wanted Deluxe Edition treatment for a Jerry Goldsmith score by Varese Sarabande?   
    That's actually not clear now. Back in my 2019 Goldsmith Odyssey interview with him Robert claimed that Masters Film Music still controlled Lionheart, The Final Conflict, and a few other titles... but then Varese put out Lionheart: The Deluxe Edition (though they later had to add his name and the Masters Film Music logo to the packaging). I think it's possible Townson doesn't control The Final Conflict after all... but bizarrely he *does* (confirmed by Varese) control The 'Burbs! Varese can't do a new edition of that one.
     
     
    Raggedy Man was a straight reissue (some say remastered for the worse), not an expansion.
     
     
    While I think Criminal Law is complete (or very close to it) on the original album, I actually learned this past year that Fierce Creatures is not! We have long heard that the album has multiple cues Goldsmith wrote specifically for the album, right? Well, what hasn't been widely known is that many of them were extended album versions of cues in the film -- of which there are several where the film versions (often noticeably different) remain unreleased! I haven't figured it all out myself but I think there might be 10 minutes or so of unreleased music which is in the film.
     
    Finally, to be more exact about a few of your numbers in the poll:
     
    Timeline on Varese is 47.5 minutes. Complete sessions leak is about 26 minutes longer.
     
    L.A. Confidential on Varese is under 30 minutes! (If you add Goldsmith's unique 22 second "Badge of Honor" from the song album it goes just over half an hour.) The sessions leak is about 46 minutes longer!
     
    For City Hall, in terms of what's in the film but not on album, 11:40 is unreleased (could be more with any alternates or unused cues):
    https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=110759&forumID=1&archive=0
     
    For Malice, it's 7:15 minutes in the film but not on album:
    https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=110814&forumID=1&archive=0
     
    For Rudy, there is an isolated score track on a DVD release of the film which only runs 12 minutes longer than the Varese album. (Again, there could be alternates or something, but I'd be surprised if there were 20 minutes unreleased.)
     
    The Varese album for Matinee is just shy of 38 minutes. I have a version which is 72 minutes with unused and alternates, so if Varese includes those an expansion would be 34 minutes longer.
     
    The Varese for Mom and Dad Save the World is 40 minutes. Terrible sounding sessions boot is 57 minutes -- about 10 cues are missing so most of those are fairly brief:
    https://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=113251&forumID=1&archive=0&pageID=1&r=500#bottom
     
    Oh, and Varese released the film recording of both Flint scores on CD in the 90s -- that's why they control them in perpetuity! Over half of each score is unreleased, because just like The Other they got Twilight Time iso score tracks which are significantly longer (but which actually omit some music released by Varese... it's possible each of those scores is approaching 70 minutes in length on its own).
     
    As for Angie and Mr. Baseball, we don't know how much is unreleased time-wise, but we do know how many cues are unreleased (and what their names are):
    It's 8 or 9 cues missing from Angie:
    https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=110814&forumID=1&archive=0
    Only 4 or 5 cues missing from Mr. Baseball:

    From MarkS:
     
    In addition the mix on album is extremely different from that in the film and I think a restoration of this score would be a revelation.

    Hope the extra info is helpful!

    There was a guy here at the forum that claimed he had dinner with John Williams' doctor. However, things escalated and the thread quickly became an all out war with FSM. 
     
    Sometimes I check this thread when I want to have a good laugh, it's hysterical.

    Brundlefly reacted to JohnTheBaptist in Your stories of how you met John Williams   
    I saw John Williams at a grocery store in Los Angeles last year. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
    He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
    I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
    The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
    When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

    This is so annoying, especially because we are aware of how close we were back in 2012. The complete score could be in my shelf for at least 7 years now.

    Yeah, a release that features three minutes of John Williams music isn't something that I would call "spectacular release from Williams".
