  1. I just wish they'd cut the Sulu joke afterwards.

    By having Sulu screw up and delay the Enterprise joining the rest of the fleet saved the ship from being immediately destroyed.

    And not to derail this thread, I love everything about the Hanover Street album.

  2. 5 second google search:

    I always wonder why people have to add this particular phrase?

    "duuhh somebody's to stupid to ask the allmighty google, so I have to show him what a great guy I am in telling how big I am...."

    seriously I don't get it.

    May be he didn't know about this site.

  3. Another sic cue was 'The Great Dual [sic]'

    Correct. "Sic" indicates that an error has been made but it's being retained. In this case it should be "Duel" not "Dual". It means the author is aware an error was made by someone else.

  4. Sometimes when you hear that something is the best all the time your expectations do get built up. I hope you continue onto season 2 though, as I did recently with the Blu-ray set. There are some really good ones to look forward to. I won't name them though, for fear of making them seem too good. I hope you enjoy it though.

    I will say I don't think there is anything as bad as "The Alternative Factor" in season 2, but some get close. <_<

  5. Star Trek III's chronology was shuffled around in post-production. The shooting script started with the Grissom arriving at Genesis (which is why it's the only sequence in the movie with an on-screen stardate). They find Spock's coffin and report back to Starfleet. That's how everyone knows that Spock is on Genesis. In the final edit, Kirk asks to go back to Genesis before the coffin is discovered!

  6. Apple Lossless and AAC at 128 kbps. I rip the CD once and then use iTunes to convert the lossless files to AAC. The lossless files are for listening on my stereo and the AACs are for my iPod. Smart Playlists in iTunes makes sure I don't see an album twice.

    I have two 1 TB drives. One is my main drive and the other is the back up.

  7. For whatever reason the previous thread discussing Intrada's new Back to the Future CD became corrupt and the last page would not open for me, despite trying it with different browsers on different machines. I kept getting the same error message, "Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /var/www/vhosts/jwfan.com/httpdocs/forums/admin/sources/classes/bbcode/custom/defaults.php on line 690" whatever that means. Anyway, the discussion can hopefully continue in this thread.

  8. Regarding AOTC, Diego, the thing is that even though there was no official score album for BTTF, there was the boot, as well as some very decent re-recordings that presented many highlights. The net result is that there isn't a huge amount of music that couldn't be heard cleanly, with the exception of the early version of the score.

    That statement is not entirely correct. The Varese album recorded cues from the earlier sessions!

  9. I had NO FREAKIN' IDEA that Silvestri did any scoring on the earlier version of BTTF, so this is a double treat for me. The original stuff sounds really cool.

    If you're implying he scored a movie with a different lead actor that would be incorrect. Silvestri wrote a score for the movie that was recorded. He then went back and re-worked the cues and re-recorded the score. The details on why this happened are covered in the liner notes. The casting change was not the reason for this.

  10. I had no inside knowledge or photos from Trek until that trailer showed up (though I could be seen in some spy photos posted on AICN). Until I showed up in that trailer, I didn't even know if you could see me in the movie, though I suspected it would be possible, because I got such a great seat.

    And if you watch one of the special features on Disc 2 (I think it's the casting one) they talk about the day we filmed that scene, with Nimoy on the set. It was really an awesome experience. And yes, I got to see Nimoy in Spock make up.
