  1. My tracking says it's in Australia and en route to me, but I find with any tracking as soon as it's in Australia it's a black hole and I've just got to wait patiently.
  2. John Murphy is reteaming with James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3. Not sure what the deal is with Tyler Bates but it appears he no longer has any high profile gigs.
  3. I'm with you Disco Stu. I got into the revival with Capaldi, then went back to the beginning. But series 9 stands out as an absolute ripper of a run. Production, writing, music, Capaldiness - all brilliant.
  4. I'm really impressed with LLL, this is why I've been an avid supporter for over a decade. Makes me look forward to what the rest of the year will bring from them. Next time there's an Intrada release I want, I'll email them and see if they could use the same alternative as LLL.
  5. I got a shipping notification from La La Land yesterday for my order of Stripes, Glory and Star Trek II. It says they use Global Post Standard International to Australia, which according to Google has not been interrupted by the USPS restrictions to Australia.
  6. So I guess I killed this thread. Seems to happen a lot to topics I post in.
  7. I really like it up until the final few tracks. What I presume is the third act. And it's not that I dislike the final tracks but they seem the most derivative for me. But my bigger issue is that the Spectre album had the same problem - the final act devolves into a wall of sound, continuous churning with not much variation. On the other hand, Cuba Chase is a wonderful return to Arnold's style and feels like where Arnold was heading with Quantum of Solace. I also really enjoy Message From An Old Friend - there's something interesting in the way it builds up to what I assume is the big action set piece shown in trailers. I also appreciate that Zimmer wasn't tempted to overuse Johnny Marr as a gimic, ala the drum circle in Man of Steel. I find Marr's contributions accentuate the greater whole. I'll be having this album on repeat for a while. My only wish is that the final set piece had gone balls-out like Arnold used to do (see All In A Day's Work, Submarine and Perla De Las Dunas). One other gripe. The score kind of just ends. The final track is an emotionally manipulative Time from Inception lift. It's pleasant enough but doesn't resolve. I presume the film will end with a Bond theme rendition, which I suspect will be Arnold's arrangement since it featured so heavily in the official podcast for the film.
  8. And in a phenomenally strange turn of events, Russell T Davies is returning as showrunner! I couldn't be more excited, especially if it means he brings Murray Gold back with him (and thus inspires Mr Gold to release the soundtrack to Series 10).
  9. Messages sent to Disney Music Emporium, Disney Music and Bruce Botnick.
  10. Is there anyone from Australia who knows what the deal is with USPS suspending shipments to Australia? What does it mean for orders placed?
  11. The nightmare is over... https://www.doctorwho.tv/news/?article=jodie-whittaker-chris-chibnall-leave-doctor-who I hope, hope, hope this also means Segun Akinola is out and that Natalie Holt has her phone close by.
  12. I'm pretty sure Roger's beginning of the year composer announcement also included Zimmer, which makes me think they might also be releasing Boss Baby: Family Business, in line with their other Dreamworks release The Croods: A New Age.
  13. I have a suspicion the Elfman title might be the premiere release of "The Woman in the Window", given the 20th Century Studios (Disney) connection. But who knows!?
  14. I know they were already announced but I still enjoyed hearing about them.
  15. I listened to Alan Menken's episode of Score. Hunchback doesn't even get a mention! But he did tease a few upcoming projects, including the live action Little Mermaid, Enchanted sequel Disenchanted, a Beauty and the Beast prequel for Disney + and Spellbound, an animated musical from John Lasseter's new animation company. He's going to have a busy few years! But perhaps this Menken renaissance is what's prompted Disney Records to revisit the Legacy Collection.
