  1. It's not a proper release of BotFJ unless it has Tom Cruise reciting his penis monologue.
  2. Kylo and Rey form the new order of the Summer Knights. And apparently there's a track called "Prologue" I now also have visions of the film opening with the voice of the late Alec Guiness saying "Previously, on Star Wars..." as we spend a hour recapping the earlier movies, and THEN we get the title and crawl. Or Ian McDairmid announces, "Star Wars was filmed before a live studio audience..."
  3. Avoiding cue titles for sake of spoilers but then glimpse "We Go Together"... ... cannot get the song from Grease out of my head. Wonders if final scene in SW9 will be cast singalong and big production number in theme park as Kylo and Rey (now dressed as Olivia Newton John) soar above the gang in their space ship and go off into the clouds
  4. I still use it a lot, but only to buy books and CDs. Never had a problem, but that doesn't mean to say there aren't problems. Maybe it could depend on from where the stock comes or the type of item being bought
  5. There's also Fishpond.com.au over here - the local competitor to Amazon
  6. Ah... thanks very much for that. I've never seen a variation on the official artwork other than the covers on the LP and the FSM cover. This is good to know (and Steve McQueen still looks like his mum mated with that tall alien from Close Encounters)
  7. Some members here commenting on the price of this set. I'm happy it's as cheap as it is. I expect that with more than the usual number of copyright owners that there'd be more than the usual set of licensing fees. And it seems they couldn't get the original artwork for TI and had to pay extra for cover artwork to be created. And then there's the issue of getting permission to use the actors' likenesses on the cover (although Steve McQueen looks like his mum mated with that tall alien from Close Encounters). And then there's MM's work in improving the audio, which sounds like he did way more than the usual excellent effort. I would not be surprised if LLL's profit margin on this box set is small. I'm grateful to all involved for bringing this out and I'm looking forward to adding this set to the earlier releases I already own
  8. Agree, but maybe.. 1. this is a dummy cover used only for promo purposes, 2. the blue didn't work with the original black cover per Eps 7 and 8, and Disney wanted to stick with the blue 3. it reflects some massive shift that happens in the movie 4. Disney is just messing with us
  9. JW: "I actually had MM do proper treatments for Sugarland Express, Storia Una Donna, and everything else before Jaws, but I'm keeping them unreleased just for the giggles." ASM: "Yass Queen! That's so on fleek!"
  10. These are just amazing. Thank you for doing them and sharing them. IN AWE.
  11. I recall hearing part of "Back to America" from Angela's Ashes at one of the Oscars, but I can't remember if it was for "In Memoriam" or another sequence. More knowledgeable minds please clarify. Thanks.
  12. One of the problems was the way it was marketed and promoted, which created false expectations in the buyers. I think if Sony had sold it as nothing more than "the score as heard in the film" there would have been less outrage. But the wording and marketing implied we'd also get unreleased stuff like music for the film before it was re-edited. There was good stuff left on the editing floor and we knew about it, and thought we'd be getting it based on marketing. I don't mind the 2CD release - once I accepted it for what it is and not for what it was marketed to be.
  13. Our Channel 7 has been using NBC's news theme for it's own news theme for years now, beginning with the original arrangement. Many locals have no idea Williams wrote it or that it was written for NBC. Variations and loops like the above sample are used as underscore for the "breaking news" announcements or "up next on Seven news..." tags. They are no surprise to us as we're so used to hearing them. I just figured that when NBC licensed the theme outside the US that local channels are allowed to arrange the music to add a more local flavour or to otherwise suit their needs. It's also possible the above sample is part of a suite of tags and bumpers that are provided by NBC exclusively to non-US users and the local channel can choose from them.
  14. Good stuff. When I read the thread title I thought you missed out on buying them, as where I'm from "lucked out" means "bad luck" or "missed opportunity" Oh the English language!
