Not to mention that very significant milestone anniversary in 2021........   It's so obvious now!                          

If Potter isn't announced on Friday, I'm going to buy 30 bags of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Jelly Beans, go through them each assiduously picking out just the vomit flavored beans, and mail them to La

Holy crap guys, it's finally happening!!!1!  

I bought Munster, Go Home yesterday in addition to Forces of Nature.  Been enjoying watching the original series with my daughter, including the music, and the expanded orchestral sound for this TV movie score sounds cool.  Plus, it's always nice to have more Halloween adjacent scores!

Basically, the Newman / Steiner / Korngold / Rozsa / Waxman / Friedhofer etc type stuff

 

Nothing Jerry or John or Mancini

Current studios that are in play for rest of 2020 are (not to say we aren't working with WB and MGM for 2021 titles)

 

Fox/Disney
Paramount
Sony
Universal

 

Due to the pandemic approvals are slow

 

Hopefully this will rectify itself in 2021 and we will be able to get some exciting titles out

 

In the meantime we hope to have some really great stuff out Dec 1 (our Black Friday batch). As of right now we have no idea what will be approved in time. We've done our part...its up to the approval Gods to answer our prayers

 

(No crazy pricey box sets though so you can rule that out)

Isn't Amistad and WotW DreamWorks movies? 

 

The state of who owns what from the Dreamworks library seems very complicated to me, but by the end of this paragraph I *think* Paramount owns Amistad right now??

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DreamWorks_Pictures_films

Quote

First film library spun off in DW Funding LLC and controlling interest sold to Soros Strategic Partners LP and Dune Entertainment II LLC. In February 2010, Viacom acquired the Soros stake.[1] (The sale only included films released through December 28, 2005, the latest film in the package being Match Point.) All animated films are currently owned by Universal Pictures via its acquisition of DreamWorks Animation which was spun off from DreamWorks in 2004 as a publicly traded company until 2016. And a majority of films that were co-produced by both DreamWorks and its sister studio Amblin Entertainment are now co-owned by both Paramount and Amblin Partners (The owner of both the DreamWorks and Amblin banners). The DW Funding library is now co-owned by ViacomCBS (through the Paramount Pictures unit) and Access Entertainment (since it has acquired RatPac-Dune, Dune Entertainment's successor).

MV mentioned that there were 2 Sony Music titles approved before the letter was sent out in February 2019, so it has been 19 months since he said that

 

'Approved' as in contracts signed, right?

 

19 months seems like ample time to commence & complete work (and finalize approvals) on a single score expansion. He did say no giant box sets so I'm guessing the BF slate will be single films.

I don't need any box set anymore, so not worried.

I've really never preferred box sets over individual releases when it comes to film scores.  I would have happily bought separate releases of the Jurassics, Potters, Disasters, Lethal Weapon, and Apes film scores.


TV is different, I love season boxes

How's the Lethal Weapon box?

 

I didn't grow up watching these films like I did with the Die Hards, so it was kind of a blind buy; I might have sampled one of the scores on Spottily beforehand, I can't remember.

 

I ended up liking it a lot!  There's a lot of really fun action music in these scores.  The scores are like a cousin of Die Hard's scores, but less serious and dour and more fun and well, saxophone-y

I find it hard to appreciate the Die Hard scores away from the films - perhaps the Lethal Weapon scores are better suited for that. I don't mind a good saxophone part!

It is indeed. It is the most satisfying from the musical narrative point of view. It does start slow but once it gets going it turns into the most consistently exciting score of the three. 

 

Lethal Weapon box set is good too. The scores share a lot of the same musical DNA with Die Hard but with other eclectic elements thrown into the mix as well.

The ' best' thing about these expansions is the previously op, htf,  and $$$ version become available.

I paid $5 for APOLLO 13, DOLORES CLAIBORNE

3 bucks for DH2 osts,  after the multi- disc sets came out!

Well, the difference is, these special Labels box set releases come out only as a box set. TV series (unless they're older) come out as individual seasons first, and then years later when the series is done, you get a box set. And then there's me with the first (or first two or three) seasons already bought, trying to decide whether to pick up the remaining ones individually or to get the box set. I'm still waiting for a good deal on the Fringe box set.

He hopes that the title(s) they want to release on the 28th will be approved and back from the pressing plant by then

 

LLL hasn't done the clue game for years, they just wait until things are at the plant then put them on a monthly flier, or don't do anything and just announce them about a week before release via a short Facebook/FSM post
