  1. Man Sisko should bitch-slap that song outta existence. There was one, I think Digital Bits, that had some good examples using Terminator 2, Titanic, Independence Day (that one full of hard-matted effects that didn't benefit from Super 35 the way the rest of the film did) if I recall. But any type of mass-marketing campaign was rare. Fox had their "Widescreen Series" VHS releases with promos showing side-by-side comparisons. Minor stuff.
  2. taking a dump on a pile of shit? Josstice League is a fun, somewhat harmless dumpster fire, and Whedon took plenty of time (allegedly) to dump all over Snyder's work so meh. Complaints about the AR make no sense to me, given people have been watching CinemaScope movies with horizontal black bars on TVs for years now. Letterboxed content. Also, I've been watching a shit-ton of Star Trek so I'm just seeing pillarboxed material all the time now. If anyone wants to fill their TVs with 16:9 content using Snyder Cut, just zoom in to approximate a center crop of the image you'
  3. Alexander's Ragtime Band is different, yes. Crossfade "Post" with "My Heart Will Go On" and you have the intended end credits. It's a direct continuation.
  4. Not to mention filming in and giving thanks to (for permission to film in) a Chinese concentration camp for their Mulan remake.
  5. Don't forget to shrink the embedded cover art, it'll cut the massive file size down quite a bit.
  6. I'm the opposite, in that I love when he uses the electronics and occasionally makes it a kind of "Star Wars goes Gangsta" sound. Love it.
  7. BALTO is my ultimate Christmas-sounding but not actually a Christmas score. The vast majority of the score is full of that holiday season sound.
  8. Had a miniscule, teeny-tiny bit of involvement in this one behind the scenes a while back. Glad to see it come to fruition.
  9. Congratulations to Chris for a job very well done, and it was indeed very challenging.
  10. The Batman theme from this score is one of my son's favorite pieces of music.
  11. I did the entire film's audio mix, AND I did separate sequences. I've been doing them for years. I sent you an email with a link to the film with the restored score.
  12. Not at all, no. I wish Horner scores got that type of info in their booklets like Goldsmith scores did.
  13. Correct. It's a joke title, a riff on "Shrimp on the Barbie" from Paul Hogan in the 90s.
  14. Three of us spent all weekend pouring over it to get it right, and one of our designers made the splash art specifically for the article.
  15. Take out that completely utterly fucking stupid joystick on the bridge and that film isn't that bad.
  16. Yeah they're off the FYC, though if you play them at a loud volume you can still hear the birds. More dialed down very low than completely removed. Westenra's vocals are entirely removed on that FYC though. So basically it's like this: disc 1 1. The New World (OST version) 2. First Landing 3. Nature (Forest Textures on FYC) 4. A Flame Within 5. An Apparition in the Fields... 6. Journey Upriver 7. Of The Forest (Bird Demo on FYC) 8. Pocahontas and Smith (FYC has slightly longer oboe intro) 9. Forbidden Corn 10. A New Life (Rolfe Proposes 1 on FYC) 11
  17. I am the guy who made the combined FYC / OST album. I can't believe that was 8 years ago I did that. I titled that cue "Nature" because I didn't really care for the name "Forest Textures". Same with the cue "A New Life". I don't like the names "Rolfe Proposes 1" and "Rolfe Proposes 2" so I gave the former a new title. Just made sense at the time. Adding in the bird / vocal-less versions of cues as bonus tracks off the FYC seemed like the natural thing to do. Below is the custom back cover I'd done for the back of a theoretical CD years ago.
  18. I think he's pretty spot-on. One cannot compare this to any other film series musically, especially its endurance in the public consciousness. Lord of the Rings / Hobbit for example, six films with one composer but that has not and will never resonate as much as Star Wars. Nothing really ever will, nothing has ever come close.
  19. It was never going to be anyone BUT Franglen and he’s worked with James for years. Titanic first, then from Avatar right up to the end of James’ life.
  20. You and me both...thankfully a friend is gifting me a copy. I couldn't have been able to get it otherwise.
