    Ollie got a reaction from John in Danny Elfman's JUSTICE LEAGUE (2017)   
    It’s not vintage Elfman but it’s a step in the right direction compared to what came before it.
     
    Its not like DC can go any lower. Since they started they’ve had one good film out of 4, or 1 out of 5 if you counted Green Lantern. And as good as Wonder Woman was, the music was dreadful. I especially don’t know what they were thinking when the end credits were scored.
     
    it seems with addition of Matt Reeves for the solo Batman film and list of possible directors being discussed for MOS 2, DC is headed in the right direction. But if JL bombs, who knows what will happen.

    New arrivals.  The first pressing of the VERTIGO from the Mercury label  has a great dynamic sound that was not so orderly in the Varese expansion issue.
     
    Decided to hunt the Varese rerecording of North' s 2001 A Space Odyssey - after  being impressed by the Filmusicte concert that Varese did.
     
    The Herrmann cd and Korngold DVD-A being upgrades for me.
     
     
    Still no sign of ET 2CD set.

    You’re identifying with this character a little too much for comfort.....

    Ollie reacted to crocodile in What Is The Last Score You Listened To? (older scores)   
    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by Patrick Doyle. I will never quite understand why people dislike it so much. Surely, it is the most distinctive of non-Williams sequels. I know it does adjust some things in Hedwig's theme but at least it sounds like someone doing their own thing instead of slavish aping. Complexities of that approach aside, at least it is artistically viable. It is also a very well put-together album (I'm ignoring songs, of course).

    It repeats key moments of the first, but the bulk of the score is original, and quite different in character.

    People have been calling Williams a genius for decades, it isn't anything new. That's because he is one.

    They put out batches like this that have "very limited appeal" in very limited numbers.  There was a time ten, fifteen years ago, that all of these would have received wide CD releases in stores nationwide - especially the animated movie.  Now, even big blockbuster movies are moving away from wide releases.  Blade Runner (a ZIMMER FRANCHISE score!) had limited CD pressings.   The CD pressing of the score to IT (now the highest grossing horror movie of all time) is a limited FYE exclusive release in the U.S., as are two recent DC Comics animated film scores.
     
    Varese makes no secret of what their "Limited Edition" line is for - CD releases of recent films in limited numbers with likely limited interest.  Presumably if there was zero interest, they wouldn't release them.   The disappointment in a batch of new Varese "Limited Edition" titles is built completely on unrealistic expectations of what that line is, in spite of Varese's transparency.
     
    When Varese announces a "Club" batch, that's where your big Goldsmith, Williams, Horner, Silvestri, Elfman, Zimmer, Giacchino, etc etc expansions will pop up some day.

    There’s just some about Rey’s theme, it feels as if Williams was more taken with this character than any in the prequels.
