  1. Psst, I figured out the correct order for the first track: combine 1:55-end of "Decent Men" and all of "Bank Robbery". Pretty good list, overall, though. Now all we need is CJWilkie to go NUTS on his chronological list. Yeah, I'm working on it. That list is quite wrong I'm afraid My Batman Begins score sounds a lot better in chronological order. For starters, the first 1:40ish of I'm Not a Hero goes between Bank Robbery and Buyer Beware.
  2. Correct. It deserves the Oscar for being the best score of the year. Wall-E was better.
  3. The Dark Knight score is back in contention for an Oscar. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/the_big_pi...-the-acade.html
  4. Excellent job. By the way, did you count how many music in the film are still unreleased in the OST? Because we will have 50mins of new music. In this case, maybe we could (in other words, you could) calculate whether the End Title will be include in the 2CD set or not. Would you mind doing that? Well the current TDK CD is 1:13:32. Add "50 minutes of new music" and we get 2:03:32. According to IMDB the film is 2 hours 32 long including end credits. From this alone I cannot tell whether or not the new cd will include the end credits. The entire film is not saturated with music (the batpod chas
  5. That wasn't even analysing the score per se, it was merely pointing out what goes where... A little bit of Zimmer on a page of John Williams never hurt anyone ;-) Mind you, I love Williams' scores for not being a mish-mash like Zimmer's. I don't have to do what I just did for John Williams, but I've re-cut Pirates 1, Batman Begins and bits of TDK because of their stupid layout.
  6. TPM was Williams and the whole production team trying to hark back to the old days. AotC was them moving in a new direction and not doing a great job of it. RotS was them again moving in a new direction but this time doing a wonderful job. I think TPM had a good general "sound" to it - it sounds like Star Wars, though through a slightly different looking (hearing) glass. Duel of the Fates is a totally left field track that blows me away all the time too. Proof that Williams can score some serious poo. The problem with Attack of the Clones was that it wasn't a serious movie...or it was diffic
  7. Alright, let's do this. Here is the list of scenes from The Dark Knight, and the corresponding music that is in each scene too. I made this so that I could re-cut the score as I did with Batman Begins to put each track in order. Sure it's nice owning the original CD, but I am also a nerd for music in chronological order... 1. Bank Heist 2. Gotham at Night/Scarecrow Encounter I’m Not a Hero: 0:00-1:40 3. Gordon and Batman in the bank - 4. Stitching Wounds 5. Courtroom Gun/”If you’re not getting shot at” 6. Gordon meets Dent/Lau and Boardroom/Bruce wants a new suit
  8. Compare and contrast: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lord-Rings-Fellows...8779&sr=1-2 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dark-Knight-Specia...8787&sr=1-2 One real problem I have atm with the TDK "complete" score is we don't know exactly what the tracks contain. If it contains all the music from the film, a lot of it may be kept as suite tracks (example: Harvey Two-Face) in the original cd, and the extra stuff is just music that wasn't there before. Or they're going to expand on the original tracks. Like will "A Watchful Guardian" be the opening of A Dark Knight with a bit of Aggressive Expansion added o
  9. When you look at it realistically like I explained in an earlier post, it's a decent price. Don't compare it to Indy, because quality of music is irrelevant, and Indy was hella-cheap for what it was. Have you considered that the Blue Box is about 3 times the price of the Indy set, yet it only has 3 more discs of music? Now look who's being overpriced, JOHNNY WILLIAMS!!! Look at it this way then. I bought the Fellowship of the Ring complete collection (3 cds + DVD + book about the music/motifs + awesome case) which was a complete 3 and a half hour score with perfect presentation...for about £3
  10. An acceptable price would be less than the Indy collection. 3 and a half legendary almost complete scores verses one very enjoyable and apparently complete score.
  11. I love the TDK soundtrack, and Batman Begins too, and this is too over-priced for me.
  12. Ha, no problem. It's interesting how much film goes in between the two scenes (sick trike and the brachiosaur wake-up), and more importantly, how much music!
  13. I already have my holy grail: The Lord of the Rings: The Complete Recordings. Having said that there are two soundtracks after this Indy one that I would love to have a complete score for. Batman Begins(I've heard enough opinions about this already) The tracks on the official soundtrack are jumbled up, and despite me having recut and rearranged the entire thing, there are still cues and tracks from the film that should have been included, such as the suit up before Rachel visits Arkham, and the monorail fight. Jurassic Park One of my favourite soundtracks/films, though has its flaws. Again, li
  14. Thought I'd add King Kong (2005 - James Newton Howard) because it doesn't seem to have been done. Only some small changes, but the following is the chronological order of tracks: King Kong Defeat is Always Momentary Two Grand The Venture Departs A Fateful Meeting It's in the Subtext Last Blank Space on the Map It's Deserted Something Monstrous...Neither Beast Nor Man Head Towards the Animals That's All There is... Tooth and Claw Beautiful Captured Central Park The Empire State Building Beauty Killed the Beast I-V
  15. Anyone else looking forward to The Two Towers at the end of the year? I can't imagine a Christmas without Lord of the Rings. Wouldn't it be great if they released all the music from the first film too! I mean, I enjoyed the general release soundtrack and everything, but for me it just wasn't enough. Unfortunately I can't see anyone pulling out all the stops on a masterwork that's bound to be ignored...
