  1. Well, only 20 minutes of score on the original release possibly might even be too short of an album selection for Thor. I’m pretty sure I ran by Free Willy 2 as an example (only three score tracks/10.5 minutes, or 9.5 minutes less than Shattered got) in one of our conversations on the subject years ago, and he agreed that something like that absolutely deserved an expansion. Yavar
  2. Is there something incorrect about my use of the word “technological”, relating to my lack of knowledge about film technology of the time (ie how long a reel was)? Yavar
  3. Indeed — and his live TV and radio output in the 1950s is kind of a great untapped treasure trove of goodies, which Leigh Phillips’s new Goldsmith Anthology project is hoping to tackle further, after recording everything we can find of Goldsmith’s output for General Electric Theater. While Goldsmith himself told Jon Burligame that he started on that show in the mid 50s while it was a live program, not long after he started Climax, the earliest episode we’ve been able to confirm him working on (by finding the actual written music) is “Hitler’s Secret” in 1959, which was a filmed episode. Incidentally that’s one of two more scores for the series which Leigh just recorded last week, and for anyone who likes Dark Jerry this will be a real treat, a powerful 9.5 minutes of concentrated brass and percussion tension. But yeah, it’s amazing to think that less than a year ago, it sure seemed like nobody would bother touching live TV/radio 50s Goldsmith, which would require re-recordings for super obscure material. And now a world of possibilities has opened up! His output in 1959 and 1960 for Playhouse 90 in particular is thrilling to contemplate because these were basically feature length stories (the “90” is for “90 minutes”, so these were basically TV movies of the 50s), and Jerry was afforded a larger orchestra budget and could afford close to 20 musicians, sometimes more… Yavar
  4. Thanks! It’s actually more than 100 scores if one counts each episode score individually (I just combined into one entry for each show, so The Waltons or Gunsmoke for example becomes one “score” rather than the six different scores they each are.) Yavar
  5. Why can’t a survivalist be gay, by nature? Shunned by society and shunning it in return.. makes perfect sense to me, whether or not fungi are turning people into zombies. (He was a gay survivalist before that event.) So…where exactly is the inconsistency, to you? Yavar
  6. Anyone else think it’s pretty weird for Jay to call me out like this? Jay, if nobody here cared about that “other website” (the frickin’ Internet Movie Database) and didn’t appreciate my comments about it, how come I got *14* positive reactions from my first two posts mentioning it? To me that indicated some interest here about the review bombing, so it’s not at all unreasonable that I would bring up it happening for an episode that hasn’t even aired yet. That said, despite your oddly directed criticism of me, I applaud and appreciate you for your much more detailed posts/reviews about each episode of this fine series so far (I’ve “liked” every one!) and I look forward to more. I’ll try to write more on the subject myself going forward. Yavar
  7. Wow, and now even though today’s episode doesn’t have Bill and Frank in it, it’s still getting ratings-bombed at IMDb in advance of it even being released later today. Yavar
  8. When did you try? I think they might be taking a vacation. Maybe give email one more shot, and then try the FSM board because they seem to answer inquiries there. Yavar
  9. How can you know without actually watching it? It’s a masterpiece with incredible acting performances, and since you strangely dislike Pedro and Bella in this, I guess you should know that they are only briefly in the beginning and end of the episode, not the focus of it at all. Yavar
  10. I found a number of things to add even there. Here's my expansion of your list, but in the ones I've added I'm skipping speculation about how well they'd sell... also I've added purple to signify "completely unreleased": Potential Releases: Timeline - only OST exists, surefire seller Soarin' Over California - only ride cue commercially released, loading and unloading (what they call "fill and spill") cues remain unreleased though there's a YT upload of the former Disney's The Kid - never recorded but Goldsmith wrote two dozen cues which exist at the Academy's Margaret Herrick Library, and a new recording could be produced The 13th Warrior - only OST exists, must be licensed out by Disney, surefire seller Mulan - only OST and FYC exists, must be licensed out by Disney, surefire seller Fierce Creatures - only OST exists (several film cues remain unreleased) 2 Days in the Valley - only posthumous OST exists, moderate seller Angie - only OST exists, moderate seller City Hall - only OST exists, good seller Babe (the Gallant Pig) - never recorded but Goldsmith wrote 17 cues (covering over 80% of the film) which exist at the Academy's Margaret Herrick Library, and a new recording could be produced Malice - only OST exists, moderate seller Six Degrees of Separation - only OST exists, bad seller The Vanishing - expansion almost complete, moderate seller Medicine Man - only OST exists, must be licensed out by Disney, surefire seller Mr. Baseball - only OST exists, bad seller Mom and Dad Save the World - only OST exists, moderate seller Not Without My Daughter - expansion almost complete, however: lost elements, bad seller Brotherhood of the Gun (aka Hollister) - theme only (several versions); score composed by Joel Goldsmith H.E.L.P. - theme only (format music including Main Title); scores composed by Joel Goldsmith Gremlins 2 - expansion complete, but sound is inferior to the original album thanks to Labson mastering Leviathan - only OST exists (potential expansion by Quartet), surefire seller Link - only OST exists, commercially (expanded boot has poor sound) Innerspace - expansion almost complete, surefire seller Supergirl - expansion almost complete, must be licensed out by Silva, surefire seller Under Fire - only OST exists (Twilight Time Blu-ray iso track is music & effects) The Secret of NIMH - expansion only added a single cue (almost 10 minutes still missing) Raggedy Man - only OST exists The Final Conflict - expansion almost complete, surefire seller MacArthur - only (re-recorded) OST exists, surefire seller Twilight's Last Gleaming - only OST exists, good seller Damien: Omen II - expansion already complete, surefire seller The Cassandra Crossing - expansion already complete, good seller High Velocity - only OST exists, good seller Damnation Alley - Intrada had to re-record synth elements; score is OOP and especially deserves a re-release if original synth elements are ever uncovered Ransom (aka The Terrorists) - only (terrible) OST exists Only in America (aka The Best of Times) - only four brief cues (two minutes) released by LLL in 2022 taken from the pilot film's mixed audio track; complete score would probably require a new recording Indict and Convict - score for TV movie starring William Shatner and Eli Wallach The Waltons: "The Foundling", "The Typewriter", "The Star", "The Ceremony", "The Literary Man", "The Love Story" - Goldsmith wrote the series theme and scored these six episodes;

(I've confirmed at least three) CBS Radio Workshop - at least six extant episodes including the masterpiece "1489 Words" CBS Suspense - at least four extant radio episodes CBS Romance - at least seven extant radio episodes Hallmark Hall of Fame - at least three extant radio episodes Columbia Workshop - one extant episode (his first original radio score, in November 1951) I daresay it's a pretty comprehensive list now! Maybe time to launch a 2023 thread, @Brundlefly? Just this past Monday Leigh Phillips newly recorded two more General Electric Theater scores: "Hitler's Secret" and "The Legend That Walks Like a Man", which should be released to Kickstarter backers in 6 weeks or so, and to the general public in a few months...

  11. Wow, since my post it’s dropped even further to a 7.9 now, compared to 9.2 for the first two episodes. And Ms. Marvel, one of the best Disney+ MCU shows, is sitting at a 6.2. Really sad how much bigotry exists, isn’t it? Yavar
  12. I agree with everything positive said about episode 3, the best of three (great!) episodes so far IMO. My wife was crying like I’ve never seen her cry when watching something. I looked at IMDb less than 24 hours after the episode aired and it was a 9.6/10 on IMDb, and I thought that was about right compared to the first two episodes in the lower 9s. But now I see it’s in the low 8s thanks to a lot of haters review-bombing it with 1s. Sad. And I think we know why most of these people are rating it THAT low… Yavar
  13. Contact their customer service and I’m sure they’ll fix it. Yavar
  14. Shang-Chi and Black Panther 2 I liked more than some of the D+ shows, but definitely not as much as the best D+ shows. Those have generally been MUCH stronger than the movies in Phase 4 though, IMO. Yavar
