    Ollie got a reaction from TSMefford in Are 99% of Mainstream Movies Today Garbage?   
    No, there have been plenty of garbage movies made since cinema began. It may feel that way because films are made differently these days, multiplexes allow for more films to be seen and social media/cable/ streaming also gives a viewer more chances than say 30 years ago. 
     
    But I’ve questioned why I’ve wasted 2 hrs watching films from the 30’s thru the 80’s just much as I have with cinema the last 20 years.

    Answering yes is the cowards answer.  Movies are an ever evolving craft. They don't necessarily speak to all of us but they speak to those its meant too.  The overtly cynical JWFans here will say yes but they are incorrect. None of us here see 99% of all films, hell none of us see more than probably 10 % of the films released each year.

    Would have been interesting to hear how he tackled them some 18 years later.

    Ollie reacted to May the Force be with You in Is Al Pacino an overrated actor?   
    Al Pacino is certainly not the most versatil actor because of his too strong attachment to Michael Carleone and Tony Montana who are both Mafioso but that doesn't make of him an overrated actor that's just what I'm saying
     
    Denzel Washington, Jack Nicholson, Tom Hanks, Anthony Hopkins, Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, James Stewart, John Wayne, Gene Hackman, Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn, Frances McDormand or Emma Stone have often all similar roles but that doesn't make of them overrated actors.
     
    They are stars with strong personality so that obviously reflects in their choice of careers and the resemblance of their roles.

    Ollie reacted to Jay in James Horner's STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN (1982) - NEW! 2021 2-CD La-La Land Records Remastered Edition   
    Another nice aspect of the liner notes (and radio discussion) is that it put into words things I sort of subconciously knew about the score, but hadn't ever directly thought about before.  Like the aforementioned sad, unfinished versions of Spock's Theme in Genesis Countdown and Amazing Grace.

    But also the winding, twisting nature of Khan's theme, how it can sort of endlessly loop through itself, perfectly encapsulating the inner turmoil of Khan.
     
    But what really cooked my noodle was realizing that the "danger motif" opening of Suprise Attack is not just a "variant" of Khan's theme, it's Khan's theme with the first 3 notes missing (so, its notes 4-7 of the theme).  Can't believe I never realized that before.
     
    I'm definitely going to read through the booklet again before it goes on my shelf.
     
    I finished disc 2 last night, heard all the bonus tracks.
     
    After all this time, hearing "The Eels of Ceti Alpha V" with its full clean ending was kind of amusing - turns out we weren't really missing much of it with the "Kirk In Space Shuttle" overlap after all.
     
    The alternate take of Buried Alive is cool, might be more musically interesting than the used take
     
    The alternate Amazing Grace just sounded wrong to me!  They were wise to go with the D version for the film, FSM CD, and LLL Main program.  The E-Flat version just sounds... well, wrong is the only word my musically uneducated brain can use to describe it.
     
    Wild Orchestra is pretty cool to hear, I wish the used take (the one mixed into Battle In The Mutara Nebula on disc 1) was included in this track as well.  Why not?
     
    The third Amazing Grace track uses the D version like the main program, but the bagpipes are digitally manipulated to no longer be playing in between D and E-flat.  I'd have to listen again to see if I prefer this over the main program version or not.  I actually realized when listening to this that what I personally would have ultimately preferred is a version of this track without the bagpipes at all, just the short Horner intro cue and full Horner outro cue nice and clean.  Oh well.
     
    The "Edited End Title" from the old 45RPM single is nice to have for completion's sake, but  not sure how often I'll listen to it.  I guess it's the right track to put on a compilation of Horner's best themes or something.
     
    Overall great release.  I'll listen to the main program a lot for the rest of my life.  And the bonus tracks are all great to have.

    Got mine today, first thing I did in iTunes was take the two separated cues, “The Eels…” and “Kirk in Space Shuttle” and move them to the main program. 😁
     
    The sound is improved, much more separation and clarity in the cues.
