This forum has  a "report post" feature and this is now the most reported post we've ever had in the entire history of this forum.   This post is a reply to one short sentence: "Seems like 2

I understand you're rightfully proud of the work your company has done, but why did you think it was necessary or appropriate to respond to his comment in such a disproportionately extreme way? 

An owner of a specialty label whom we all spend money at calling one of their customers a dumbass on a public forum is the quality content I come here for.   Never change, JWFan!

Seems like 2015 is when the BF slate started having really high profile releases.

 

2015 had Braveheart, which was the first 'big' title that came as a proper surprise to me, then (IMO) 2016 started the current phase of at least one 'Oh. My. God.' release in each batch. Just my assessment of the shift we've seen in how 'big' the 'big' releases have become.

Looks like Tomorrow Never Dies is definitely not a surprise release, as that would be 2CD and $30 like TWINE and DAD

 

I think your logic's being a bit strict there. Just because the other two were $30 doesn't mean TND has to be as well.

The 4CD set is probably THE X-FILES: VOLUME 4.  They were originally planning on releasing it in 2018 and then in May of this year they said it was in the final stages

 

I have no clue what any of the other titles could be.


it could also be the last Batman Animated Series release, which was close enough at one point to include it on one of their flyers.

MV already told us no WB scores were coming this year.

 

And wow, it's been a while. That was revealed on the 500 Releases banner from July 2019

I wish there were a few Williams title in this batch but I believe those will be relegated to quarter 1 of next year.

 

MV has hinted earlier that nothing jaw dropping in this batch (according to him)  but unless he is just playing with us.. :P

 

But 6 releases definitely mean that there will be something exciting for someone !

Isn't that score short enough even expanding it to complete form would only need 1 disc?  If true, then it can't be one of the titles, as that would surely be limited to 3,000 copies or more.

MV has already posted that they finished their Top Gun album but can't release it until after the sequel comes out

 

Tried to find a link to the post but can't find it

Has LLL ever stated such or is this just an assumption on your part?  Link?

What do you mean?

 

Oh, the quantity thing?

TV scores are the only John Williams they've ever done less than 3,000 copies for

John Williams sells.  They could easily move 3,000 copies of BO4J or Always or whatever

OK, I get it, but that does in no way mean that they will never have a movie release with fewer than 3,000 copies.  Yes, the chances are pretty good that 3,000 is the minimum but let's be honest, BOTFOF is not exactly an in-demand expanded score.

Usually if two CDs are "filled out", its a $30 title.  If its longer than 1 CD but doesn't come close to filling up 2 discs, its a $25.  This is by no means concrete and definitive, but its a trend I've noticed
