  1. I was watching Toy Story 3 yesterday, and I was really impressed with the score. I enjoy listening to the other two scores, so I was expecting a decent score from Newman at the very least, but some moments really stood out. Track 14 is just epic, and one of my favourite cues this year. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen the movie, but those who have will know exactly what scene it's from. The first half reminds me so much of Goldsmith, especially at 0:38 when the strings play a ferocious little action melody, then it's immediatly passed to the trumpets. The rest of the score is enjoyable if you liked the other scores. The third track is another good action cue, and there are some unexpected Spanish influences dotted throughout a few tracks P.S. The link above is for track 14 on YouTube. The track name contains a spoiler, as do the comments. What do you guys think of the score, especially track 14?
  2. Wow, I thought there was a thread for this but unless the search engine is broken, there isn't. So here it is! Anyways, I just wanted to mention that for the next 13 1/2 days, you can purchase the Lethal Weapon boxset direct from LLL for $95.98 instead of the usual $119.98, a savings of $24! This essentially makes each film's 2CD Complete score cost $24 each instead of $30 each. http://www.lalalandrecords.com/LethalWeapon.html Offer expires on April 21st 2014 at 11:59PM PST!

  8. Well I wanted to find the Wyatt Earp thread to include some art I found online only to find there wasn't a thread, so here it is! http://www.lalalandrecords.com/WyattEarp.html http://www.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/25752/ http://www.moviemusic.com/soundtrack/M09023/wyatt-earp/ http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/it.A/id.8280/.f Anyways, what I wanted to point out was that you can get a high res version of the cover WITHOUT the WB banner - as well as glimpse some sample pages from the booklet - at Warm Butter's site http://warmbutter.com/cds/wyattearp.php

  10. Well we know for sure that it's being recorded in New Zealand again. On August 9th, Conrad Pope checked in on Facebook "Waiting to board. Next stop breezy, lovely Wellington" (link). On August 13th, he checked in at the Museum Art Hotel in Wellington, NZ, saying "Working and working and .....working" (link). And earlier today, JoAnne Kane Music Service posted "Air New Zealand to Auckland. Middle earth here we come!" (link). I haven't found anything on Doug's twitter feed about him being in either NZ or NY, though. ANYWAY, I hope everyone is excited for this score as much as I am! It will be the culmination of not only The Hobbit's story, but the entire LOTR/TH series as a whole. I expect we'll hear definitive versions of themes such as Smaug, Erebor, Thorin, House Of Durin, The Arkenstone, Tauriel, Tauriel/Kili, Girion and Lake-town. There will probably be a bunch of new themes, though I except less new themes than either of the prior scores introduced, and less than ROTJ introduced. The only major new character not yet introduced is Dain Ironfoot, and it's possible his thematic material was already introduced in AUJ (heard in the tracks "An Unexpected Party" [3:43] and "The Dwarf Lords". Beyond that, there could be a theme for The White Council (when Gandalf, Saruman, Galadriel, Elrond, and Radagast fight Sauron in Dol Guldur). There could be a new theme, or new variation on existing Sauron material for Azog and Bolg's orc and warg army. There could be a new theme for the eagles, maybe one for the Lake-town men in battle. There could be some kind of overacting theme for the Battle of Five Armies itself too. I think it's very likely we'll finally get to hear the full Beorn theme that was only hinted at in DOS too (the recent published sheet music show how it continues from what's used in the score to a cool ending reminiscent of Nature's Reclamation) I think the big question is which of the great themes introduced in AUJ that were completely dropped in DOS will return in BOFA? One of the coolest and most radically different from the sound of LOTR themes in AUJ was Radagast's Theme, which was completely absent from DOS despite his character returning. Will we hear it in BOFA? Bilbo had 3 major themes in AUJ - his Main Theme aka Baggins/Took Theme, his Adventure Theme, and his Fussy theme. Only the latter two returned, and only in small cameos. Will he hear the definite conclusion of his main theme? Shore wrote a great theme for Thorin's Company for the first film that was mostly replaced by Misty Mountains. Will either return in Part 3? What else can we expect from BOFA? What scenes from the book are people most looking forward to hearing the score for?
  11. Who else is excited for this score? Here's a clip of the movie with Powell's new score in it https://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-news/how-to-train-your-dragon-2-exclusive-clip-161523920.html?vp=1 EDIT: The music is not from the new score, it's tracked in from the first.
  12. It is half a year away, Howard Shore's fifth entry in the world of Middle Earth. I figured this news finally warrants to start a discussion about the upcoming score. From Conrad Pope's Facebook page: Also, a man named Clifford J. Tasner is probably also on board:

  16. There wasn't a thread for this release yet, so here we go. Anyways, I was looking for a thread for this, because I read these interesting comments on FSM: It definitely sounds fake in the LLL version, but it could also be that the album mix (rightly) buried the male choir in a way that conceals its fakery better than the LLL mix. If that makes any sense. But it's definitely way too pronounced on the LLL version. http://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=102269&forumID=1&archive=0 What do people here think about this?
  17. Hearing great things about this score!

  19. Roger has announced that Intrada will have a new release of Young Sherlock Holmes on Tuesday, April 1st (they will begin taking orders on Monday, March 31st sometime between 7-8pm EST) right here. But even better, our very own Olivier Soudé (EhTar), through the website underscores.fr, has revealed it is a 2CD set, and has the track list as well as sound samples! Here is the article, which also contains several paragraphs about the film and score. Check it out! http://www.underscores.fr/index.php/2014/03/news-young-sherlock-holmes-chez-intrada/ (Note: Scroll past the French to get to the English) Grand total time is 1:43:43 UPDATE: Intrada has now released a new 3CD version in 2019. See here! http://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/24269-bruce-broughtons-young-sherlock-holmes-new-2019-3cd-intrada-edition/&do=findComment&comment=1630521
  20. Just announced by Dan Goldwasser at the International Film Music Festival (Festival Internacional De Musica De Cine) currently taking place in Cordoba!!

  21. http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/it.A/id.10541/.f?sc=13&category=22848 Sadly the newly unearthed end credits is from a terrible tape dub but is an 80's heroic gem if there ever was one.
  22. The Specialized Soundtrack Market has it changed or stayed the same? For me it times have change. In 1997 when the RCA Victor Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition 2 CD Releases , The 2000 Superman The Movie Rhino Records 2 CD Release and the 8 Disc Superman The Music 1978-1988 Box Set came out those where the peak of the specialized soundtrack market. Buying CD Soundtracks and expanded soundtracks is not the same now as it was in 1997 most people are streaming or buying their music off of iTunes , Amazon Music , Google Play Music , listening to it via Spotify etc. Sure you have company's and labels like Varèse Sarabande , Intrada Records and La La Land Records who put out these Limited Edition CD Soundtrack Sets but the market for buying CDs has changed. What are your thoughts on this and what is your opinion on this?
