  1. Three films, three butchered scores, and a notorious reputation for his treatment of actors and crew. Most definitely Jim Cameron.
  2. Jim Henrikson said there was never any plan to because the film was cut so much that Horner's intended score doesn't fit the final version anymore, with few exceptions. So they were literally stuck with having to recreate the butchered edits. As for restored score excerpts, I'm working on that and have been for a while. I'm also busy. I did "Leaving Port" and the Trailer already. Also (slightly related) take a wild guess as to who was uninvited from the memorial service....here's a hint: no one wanted him there. At all. And none of James' team wants to deal with this pe
  3. Southampton and all that main theme stuff in the score and film are my favorite. The film completely butchers it, yes. For me the revelation of the LLL album was that all of the shorter 4-note statements of the choral theme which was always my favorite version of it, compared to the longer versions on the OST. The trailer had it, but I'd never known the complete 'Leaving Port' since so little of it is used in the film.
  4. Yeah you're all welcome by the way. Having had the opportunity to actually listen to these pieces of music, especially the action / suspense-driven "sinking" sequences live, right in front of me in a concert hall, I guarantee that anyone in an audience listening to that film edit-turned live performance would think "this is shitty music" because of how awkward the edits are, the loops, tracks, everything. It is a frightfully disjointed experience that so often does NOT make any musical sense. It's just a badly edited film score and no one's memories of it - hey I "grew up" wit
  5. The film edit is dog shit. Why people scramble to find ways to make it or even want to listen to it are beyond me. Not even worth my time to entertain anymore.
  6. http://jameshorner-filmmusic.com/important-james-horner-missing-pieces-and-a-book/ Four years ago today James was lost. We are looking for some testimony from those in the industry, those who aren't but came to know him anyway, and will be utilizing as much as we can for our project.

  8. I’m down for that. What was your biggest challenge so far? That Leaving Port sequence was mine. I added back in the following cues: -portions of Distant Memories -My Drawing -Relics and Treasures (I really like this one...it's like a precursor to Deep Impact in approach) -Leaving Port (the hardest of all the cues to do because of Leo DiCaprio and Danny Nucci's brief dialogue which as you heard, still has the chimes bleeding through -Rose's Suicide Attempt -Abandoning Ship (my name for the ending to A Building Panic) -portion of the ending to Trapped on D De

  10. I don't have a very advanced video editor, so essentially I was doing all of this without the visual and had to mix them together separately. I'll make an adjustment to the music timing. EDIT: Updated link with the revision above in the original post.
  11. I made another attempt at this with better results: EDIT: Video Link Replaced with updated version (better sync)
  12. The First Contact / DS9 uniforms were easily my favorite of every Starfleet uniform. Nothing beat those before or since to me.
  13. On behalf of the James Horner Film Music association, I contacted LLL to not only let them know about the concert itself, but to specifically ask if they were interested in having the 20th anniversary album there. I even crafted a mini-poster template they could use for social media if they would like to. If they decide to use it, great, if not, that's fine too. In the end, they said they are indeed interested in having the album available on-site. We were asked by the New West Symphony to spread the word to our readers since...well it is a James Horner website after all.
  14. Copies will be available at TITANIC LIVE on June 22 in Thousand Oaks.
  15. http://jameshorner-filmmusic.com/titanic-live-west-coast-premiere-one-night-only/ Titanic Live-to-projection event coming to Thousand Oaks, California on the fourth anniversary of James Horner's passing. Details at the link, and hopefully more coverage will be happening.
  16. Actually back in 2015, DeputyRiley on the FSM board did a full breakdown: https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=110259&forumID=1&archive=0
  17. Horner's own team called it the 'danger motif'. It might've originated with them or it was just common enough that they picked up the term.
  18. Batman and Robin is dog feces covered in glitter. Time has been kind to it? What time? What dimension or reality? Come on. There's a thread idea: Dumb and Dumber versus Dumb and Dumberer vs Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd.
  19. The music is cut down to be shorter to fit the scene, but it's when the stern is rising up out of the water and Jack says "we have to move!" and he and Rose make their way over the railing to avoid falling. The screenshot of that YouTube video is actually taking place seconds before the music you're asking about. Back it up to 5:09 or so, and the screenshot and music are in sync with each other in the film.
