His 90's output wasn't very good but this is quit good. Of course not buying this, they just want our money, it doesn't sound that much better.

Yes,  he was nearest to ordinary film music but thank god he is so much above it. Thank for the other decades!! 

Jurassic park always ruins my live concerts, like in Vienna. Great score with the film. 

Such typical modern day JWFan talk. Depressing. I though this was a site for the fans of his music but I guess I was mistaken.

Hey Guys,    I just checked on good old Mike Matessino during this global pandemic crisis and inquired about his well being. He indicated that I should pass on the message that he is all wel

There it is, guys:   NEW PODCAST EPISODE! - Guest host Tim Burden presents an exclusive interview with Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains about his work and collaboration with John Willi

The little video with Tim Burden is great, it'd be nice to do that for the future releases as well!

As you very well know, it's a site for OCD collectors.

I was just trying out Pasi' usual line of commentary that he sometimes dishes out in his fervor but it didn't feel like it really is in my idiom. I am not so concerned about the current state of JWFan that I would really have to bemoan every comment people make contrary to my own tastes.

You just need more practice! :)

It seems Pasi rage-quitted the forum (again).

 

Hopefully he comes back. I need more fellow Finnish fans here.

I just opened my OST case to play the disc and noticed the back side of the liner notes has the same image that will be used on the cover of the LLL set.  Same image is also on the back of the case.  Very cool, totally did not remember what the OST had.  If anything it's a good trip down memory lane to go through the OST liners on other releases. :)

It's not really the label it's the producer.  A Mike Matessino Intrada title will probably be more comprehensive than a Didier Deutsch LLL title, ya know?

 

Of course, but even the producer has to stick to the limitations set by the label management.

I don't know what you mean by that.  You don't think Jaws or Apollo 13 didn't come out exactly how Mike wanted them to?

I'm talking about resources. Budgets. Time and money. And MM is a special case, since he's in a position where he can pick and choose, and he probably wouldn't accept a project if it didn't have a budget he thought was sufficient to create a quality product. He also get the high prestige projects, which usually are expected to sell well and therefore get a good budget.

Nice! 

 

Does anybody happen to know how much music was missing on the OST album?

Didn't they just upload the wrong file to the website, and the printed booklets were always fine?


I don’t think there’s any reason to assume that. Intrada has released several scores with badly photoshopped covers. It could just be that the airbrushing is hard to see on the printed booklets because of the ink and or glossy paper they use.

I've only seen it once, in the hands of an average director it would have been total shit, but I think Howard did fine with it.

 

Isn't the one thing about Howard that everyone agrees on that he is a very good average director?

Is there anyone that loves the film too? Or is it only me?

I think it's one of the last films that reminds of the old classic Hollywood and I love it for this.

I like it well enough.

"Love" is a strong word, I suppose, but it's got a good time setting, adventure, a good look, great music.

Can't think of any reason to be excessively critical of it.

It does fit my general movie preferences. :D

No it doesn't

Was there any other source music found that is not included on the new release?

There were two pieces of source music that John Williams wrote which he did not want included. There were various other things as well that were recorded but not considered for the release: instrumental backing for “I Honestly Love You” and “Having My Baby,” plus mono bits of Beethoven, Mozart and Hoffstetter, all used for the first town beach scene. There was also the kids’ band in the street rehearsing “Semper Fidelis,” lifeguard whistles, and things like that. But it was great to find two Williams-composed marches that we were able to include.

Wow, nice surprise coming back from a trip

 

In case anyone was wondering why I wasn't posting (I doubt it), I was on a Disney Cruise with a Star Wars day and Galaxy's Edge

 

K.m. Who hope he didn't catch the corona virus

No one was wondering where you were since you already post so sporadically and mainly in video game threads. But you certainly chose one of the worst possible times since Titanic to take a cruise.
