    "A model of economy and judicious spotting, the score clocks in at little more than a half hour in length"

    Judicious spotting is one of Jerry Goldsmith's trademarks. Only a handful of his scores don't fit on a single disc.

    Only guest on Little Fluffy Clouds I know of was Joni Mitchell, who features in a sample talking about her childhood taken from an interview she gave.

    And with today being Mancini's 100th birthday, let me again point to where I think its syncopations originate:

    Top 10, maybe even top 5 Silvestri for me. Nobody could do glorious Synclavier stuff like he did! Film is also a huge nostalgic favourite, one of my earliest cinema memories (partly shot in Norway, no less!).

    Another great album (my cover is different), but again -- it's from 2010. He hasn't released anything since RATTLE THAT LOCK in 2015, except that Ukraine song and another song with his daughter.

    I hated what they did to John Connor in Dark Fate. They really did him dirty on that movie, only to replace him with a bland character and a new renamed Skynet. And what the heck was that awful Terminator getting married and having kids or whatever?
     
    Never finished that piece of crap, and never will. Screw this franchise. I'll act like T2 is the canon ending of the Terminator saga and everything that came later was a nightmare Sarah Connor had while they were hiding in Mexico.

    I kinda like Salvation more than T3 tbh. Salvation is flawed but I like that it at least tried to do something different. From T3 I love the truck chase, but aside from that that movie is crap.
     
    Genisys is pure and complete dogshit.

    I've never seen it, I meant I like all the films Cameron has directed
     
    It is depressing that every single time anyone makes another Terminator movie, they ignore every sequel that came before it and do another direct sequel to T2, and that they are all bad films in different ways.  At least the Sarah Connor Chronicles TV series was decent, and the ending of T3 was kinda cool.  Salvation and Genisys though, yikes.

    Apparently Steven Wilson, who recently remixed Richard Wright's Wet Dream (recommended - check it out on your streaming service!), is now remixing David Gilmour's debut album.

    "David Lynch’s adaptation was disappointing. It was missing the power of Herbert’s novel. Villeneuve’s films are much more convincing. The characters are sketched out, they are very identifiable. It’s pure cinema. I speak regularly to Denis, filmmaker to filmmaker. We record our conversations, like Trufaut and Hitchcock." - James Cameron

    A 1957 film with Elizabeth Taylor, and Montgomery Clift, Gone with the wind like.
     

     
    It's included  in the 100 essential film scores of the 20th century.

    It holds a special place in my heart because it was the first soundtrack I've ever heard (I mean as an album, apart from the picture) and the reason I'm now a film music lover.
    I also think the Love theme is my favorite love theme ever! (more even than any of Williams's love themes)
