  1. I understand that, Koray, and ordinarilly, I would love to get my paws on some of them, too, but HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO it's called "stealing".
  2. Call me stupid, but why would you want these leather-bound scores?
  3. I love that score! And I like the movie. Not nearly as bad as it's said to be. Matthau is brilliant. I want a Blu release. Right on, Marian. The film has "a certain charm", does it not? Walter Matthau is splendid in this. I'm not sure that you will understand this, but I couple "Pirates" with "Quick Change" - not in style, but in "feel", in vibe, but it's probably just me...
  4. I know that I am showing my ignorance, but when you talk of "files", do you mean whole CDs, or individual tracks? Hey Richard, Just tracks, of course. If anyone here has 41K albums/CDs, then I feel sorry for their hard drive! I'd go through and count the different albums, but that would take forever. Lots of my albums aren't film scores, they are classical recordings of things from Aaron Copland works to Elliot Carter's String Quartets, pop music, jazz, etc. I've had to become more rounded and versatile in my listening than I ever thought I would have to be, which is why I may be listening to "Alexander Nevsky" on the way to work, and Ludacris on the way home. haha That's an awful lot of music, which most people can only dream of owning. Even if the average CD had 10 tracks, it still means that you would have in excess of 4000 CDs - no mean feat. P.s., I've just Googled "Ludacris". He's a bit of a 180 from "Alexander Nevsky".
  5. I saw this film in 1976. In the U.K., it was called "The Scarlet Buccaneer". I'd agree with Mark; I'm not sure how I would describe this score. Before I set out to post this, I YouTubed some of it. To me, it sounds like Western music. What I heard was nice, but did not linger long in the memory. For an alternate "swashbuckling" experience, try Philippe Sarde's "Pirates".

  7. So, were there any changes in mixes for "ESB", and "ROTJ"?
  8. Whatever gets you through the night (is all right). Most definitely. At that point in the film I was already so appalled, but that ended it right there. Do you mean that funny little dance that Johnny Depp did? Didn't the music for that come from "CATCF"? Can anyone tell me where?
  9. Even if you managed to put together an expanded version of "Blade Runner" from the 2-disc release, you would still need tracks from the Esper Edition to complete it.
  10. I only meant it as a joke, Pixie, just to illustrate the slightly absurd (if not fanatical) nature of some of these threads. Perhaps I should have said "Jaws? Pure crapola!!!!!!!!!" So, apologies, etc., if my humour is a little esoteric at times. P.S., I love "Jaws". Do you mean Ted Grossman?
  11. I hear you, Quint. I can't remember a more over-hyped film (or, for that matter, a film that I have less interest in watching).
  12. Must respectfully disagree, there, Charlie; "Nemesis" looks absolutely georgeous! P.s., Loving your new avatar. There's one thing wrong, though: J.W. should be well and truly in the centre. Please rectify asap.
  13. This "Robin Hood" is very nice - with only a hint of thatsong. It does sound as if it could have been arranged by J.W., or, at least, in the style of J.W.
  14. Yeah, it is slow, but I still like it. In the end, I guess that it really doesen't matter who likes what, Joey, as long as films and music are being discussed. That's the important thing. Actually, it's 180mns., but since DVD runs at 25 fps...
  15. Wow, I didn't think there was anyone who would admit to it. The scores are too close for me to rank, but this might be my order. I've got to admit that the alien sounds of KOTCS is the only music ever that has genuinely scared me. You mean that "The Abduction Of Barry", doesn't make you fill your pants?! Wow, I didn't think there was anyone who would admit to it. The scores are too close for me to rank, but this might be my order. I've got to admit that the alien sounds of KOTCS is the only music ever that has genuinely scared me. I think you should listen to Jaws more! Or at least Alien. Or perhaps Mariah Carey. Admittedly, the alien/Skull music is by far the most interesting of the score. I saw Mariah Carey once, up in the Birmingham NEC. She made a sound I would not want to hear twice in my life.
  16. Shame on you, Mark! You can NEVER have enough good music!
  17. What with the complete "Moving Pictures" in May, and hopefully another Doctor Who prom, my Summer of music is looking good.
  18. I'm more into story based movies (if the expression makes any sense). Strangely enough, the 2011 film I want to see the most is The Tree of Life I've been wanting to see Psycho for the last few days but unable to do so. Me. too, funnily enough "TROL", and "DH pt.2", are the only films that are interesting me so far; "DH" because I want to find out how it all ends (don't tell me, please!!!!!!), and "TROL" because it's Terrence Malik..'nuff said. As for "Psycho". Nah! Save yer money, and watch "Psycho II", instead; a much more entertaining film. I mean it...No, I really do mean it...Yes I am serious.
  19. My first impression was "so far, so what", but then I saw "TWOE". Ah! I've never heard "Dance Of The Witches" live, and if they play "The Seduction Of Suki and The Ballroom Scene" (fat chance, but a man can dreamn can't he?), I'd probably have an orgasm right there and then; not only be embarrassing, but also messy. I would love to hear the "Prolugue and Main Title" from "Superman" (with the extra 2 bars before the main theme), but it's another dream. I might combine this with the Anthony Hopkins concert the next evening, which looks just as enticing.
  20. Getting on for 200 J.W., 100 for J.G., and about 50 each for Horner, and Barry. 25 or so for J.N.H., and about 15 each for Elfman and T. Newman. Added to that, I have the odd 2-3 scores by composers, and other stuff, so I would say approximately 1000.
  21. 4 hours?! What version are they advertising? The reigion 2 DVD running time is only 170 mins. Actually, Soderdergh assembled a longer cut, but then trimmed it. I understand that the docking sequence was meant to be twice as long, with the main titles playing over it. Anyway, it's not "dull, boring, and slow", it's leisurely, stately, and extremely moving. You have to look with better eyes than that. Not sure what you mean, Chaac. Can you explain? Does anyone know whose voices are on the English dubbed version.
