  1. I got my copy a few days ago. but beware my case was all cracked!
  2. I got my Jewelcase set and it was badly cracked in places! But thats Amazon.
  3. Enough of the Box sets! Give me stand alone issues of film score albums (STAR WARS & INDY JONES not withstanding)
  4. I think both JFK and BOTFJ are monumental scores deserving of separate releases rather than the box treatment because of their Oscar worthiness. These are major box office movies with leading stars and if the artwork approval policy falls in their domain as in most Tom Cruise and Kevin Costner cases then dont expect an easy timeline to get them approved.
  5. Anyone noticed that THE RARE BREED is coming out on blu ray in a few months. Here is hoping that this reissue may help change Williams mind. https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Rare-Breed-Blu-ray/257997/#
  6. MV has commented on JFK more than once but I said in a post earlier (somewhere) they have been so preoccupied with other major Williams titles that JFK hasn't been their focus understandably. The last time I checked with Matessino he hadn't even considered the project. And MV (to me) had expressed on the various licences involved in getting this tackled. So here is hoping to see if there is any movement for this year.
  7. Anyone know whats with DARKMAN, it got delayed or something? I suppose we will see it in a few months.
  8. Going to pick the Prequels now because the prices are so reduced and understandably so. The current upgrade with its many demerits may certainly help as a case to Disney to redo these albeit as complete and definitive proper error free editions (under Matessino's guidance) and specially now that the entire saga has wrapped up.
  9. I hope Natascha Atlas's vocals on 'Giza,1928' are mixed better than the previous albums. They were so low and buried in the orchestra specially the old Milan album. I hope they are brought out more in the front. She has such a lovely voice.
  10. Iam so late to this party. Have started ordering now.TROS and REVENGE (Remastered) ready to ship. STARGATE and DISASTER will ship via Intrada when they resume their offices next week.So All this stuff should come to me in a few weeks from now. Jay do share your review of STARGATE on its thread page (if not done already). Ok. Just saw that now. Iam looking so forward to that set.
  11. I missed reading about it. Good to know there was a thread already. Going to order it. Seems pretty decent for an orchestra and conductor Iam unfamilair with.
  12. From the samples the performances seem pretty good. Anyone got this set yet? Its on the Sony label so it does appears to be a good compilation. I'd go for it because of the Han and Leia (Revised) recording.
  13. I suppose he would do this way after he has settled down to complete maybe next year. I hope he gets a new film project in next year.
  14. So right. We became die hard fans of the previous scores because we saw the films on VHS and DVD to the point we absorbed the film score. This 'gestation' time period is so important for us to develop and embrace what we have first. Bring the expansion a decade later. We will be ready by then. It will be fun and exciting the way JURASSIC PARK, HARRY POTTER, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, JAWS became for us.
  15. Ok good then. But I'am now thinking the intentional way the whole Finale is crafted or 'edited' is probably how Williams is seeing this now as a closure of this entire 9 film saga in the same way Wagners's Ring cycle did. The intrusion of the Main Title Fanfare in between sort of implies musically how he is now closing the saga with the very same iconic bars that started it and now ending it. Thoughts?
