  1. The OST is great. It has all the highlights of the score, arranged in a order that makes for a great listening experience.

    The expanded release is very, very long. If you're in love with the score as presented on the OST, you'll probably love it. If the expanded release is your first exposure to the score at all, you'll probably be overwhelmed and not like it.

    So I'd recommend the OST if you've never checked out the score before. And the movie's not that bad. Certainly better than its reputation

    What he said. When I want to hear this score I play the original album. The complete thing is like eating all icing and no cake.


  2. So you're not a geek? Judging by the fact you have close to 15,000 posts on a forum about a film composer and by your avatar, I humbly beg to disagree.

    Oh I'm totally a geek and I'm looking forward to Star Trek. It has the potential to be the greatest movie ever made!!!! That's why I have that avatar. But trust me, it's not for geeky reasons. And I won't be going to see Watchmen just to see the new Star Trek trailer.


  3. The trailer made it seem otherwise. And the running time just seems too much. I'm now getting a King Kong/Superman Returns vibe from this thing. Never a good sign for me. I hope people enjoy it, but I'll be staying far away.

    And as for the person who linked to RottenTomatoes, not the best idea. I took a look and the movie is at 76%, which is alright, but then I clicked on "Top Critics" and it wasn't too pretty. One out of six of them liked it but of course he writes for a Warners publication. Maybe that'll change by Friday, but right now, it's not so good.


  4. I have no opinion on this one way or the other. I haven't read the graphic novel and I have no investment in any of it. It doesn't look like something I'd enjoy (nearly 3 hours of CG) but considering how beloved a property this is to its fans and how long it's taken to get made and the legal drama with Fox I guess I was hoping for it to be better liked.

    I will say that the review I posted commented on the advertising, specifically the "visionary director" line and that's been driving a buddy of mine nuts since the first trailer.


  5. I never realised The Kurgan was a SW nerd.
    Dressing up as a character from the "Expanded Universe" is the bottom of the barrel.

    I'm still not convinced it's any worse than dressing as Trip Tucker or Harry Kim or Captain Janeway.

    Oh no, it is. Those are recognizable mainstream characters. These other guys are made up for the books and you have to be super hardcore to know who they are. I was proud that I didn't know who Darth Nihilus was until the Stern show bit.


  6. As geek properties, they're even.

    Nah, Star Wars has never reached the fantastic heights of Trek in terms of geekiness. Star Trek is really the epitome of geekiness in terms of entertainment, I can't think of one film/TV show/franchise that is more geeky.

    No, Star Wars has surpassed Star Trek. Just listen to

    . Dressing up as a character from the "Expanded Universe" is the bottom of the barrel.

    By the way, that clip may not be safe for work. It's a clip from the Howard Stern show.
