  1. YES! One of my favorite Elfman scores along with Mars Attacks (strange pick, I know, but I love how balls out he goes with the Hermannisms on there). How can I get this/preorder this? This will be the first time I'm able to jump on a release of this nature.
  2. Oh, you were speaking in terms of the film mix. Yeah, modern film mixes are absolutely atrocious. Compared to the sound mixes of the first films in these respective franchises (Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark), films like The Force Awakens just sound so...bad. There's just no other way to describe it.
  3. Anthem of Evil plays pretty heavily throughout TROS. Limited grand statements, but when I listen to the soundtrack it seems like I hear Anthem of Evil in almost every track on the CD.
  4. As far as horror film scores go, I'm partial to Herrmann's Psycho, Zombie by Fabio Frizzi, Halloween, Goblin's Deep Red, Day of the Dead by John Harrison, Phil Glass' Candyman, Scream by Beltrami...I could go on. I love the restored score for Nosferatu 1922 by Erdsmann (and Gillian Anderson by proxy) I love The Shining's score but I feel like it's less a score and more extremely effective ambience texturing, and I can't quite listen to it on it's own. As much as I am a huge fan of horror I've still missed out on some "classics" such as Re-Animator and Night of the Demo
  5. Poll is now closed! Wow! I'm surprised so many people prefer Giacchino's video game score to that of the movie!
  6. I do! Those were fun times. I mostly just listened to the music because the game was not fun for me at all.
  7. The Mummy Returns is an absolutely fantastic soundtrack. I love Goldsmith, but I think Silvestri's score suits those characters and that world better. The standout theme for me is the one you call the Main Hero Theme A. Such a wonderfully rousing theme that rivals the Raiders March in how much it calls me to adventure. Appreciate this write-up. Let's talk Mummy scores!
  8. Re: SNES score remasters. I first learned people were doing this when my boy Sam Miller started his DKC restoration project. Since then I've learned that people are doing it to N64 games as well. This Youtuber is doing an excellent job of restoring the scores in higher quality sound, but he's emulating how they are heard in game as best as he can as opposed to following official CD release mixes. He answers questions about his process in this thread on ResetEra: N64 Music Remastered in High Quality (Video-Game OST HQ) | ResetEra
  9. How long does the sale go on for? I was going to buy another single instrument but I might get Kontakt when I get paid next.
  10. Yes, that's Gordy referencing himself. There's stuff he did on Kinect Star Wars and The Old Republic that gets brought back in Battlefront. There's a passage at the end of Prologue and the Escape from Battlefront 2 that ends up being the theme for Merrin (or Dathomir in general) in Jedi Fallen Order, and he brings back the Crait Loader music from Battlefront II for a brief passage in Star Wars Squadrons. It's akin to John Williams using what the forum members call the "Ludlow Motif" when writing themes for different movies, or James Horner putting that brass line in nearly every on
  11. That's a great eerie version of the Anthem of Evil. Love how it crescendos a little bit in brass at around 3:33 before turning into the Emperor's theme. Anthem of Evil was one of the highlights for me in the new scores if you don't understand my enthusiasm in this post.
  12. I think Star Wars has plenty of scale outside of the very specific thing I'm referring to. Hell, we begin the movie with the best example of scale, which is the great shot of the Star Destroyer absolutely enveloping the screen as it chases the tinier corvette. Then there's the aforementioned shot of the Millenium Falcon entering the Death Star but one of my favorite things that is done in the OT as far as providing scale is showing ships we thought were absolutely massive against objects or ships that are even larger. There's a shot of the Imperial Cruiser we saw chasing the corvette speeding
