Mine are:

 

4 Indy's 

 

HTTYD 2 and 3

 

All 9 Star Wars

 

Tomorrow Never Dies (With all this NTTD postponements it feels like it never will be released)

 

 I'm actually fine with all this bootlegs, isolated scores and other stuff that is avaliable now, but official release is official release

Your thread title asks for "not released yet" expansions, then in your main post 8 of your 16 examples have already received expansions.


So you want us to list titles we'd like to be re-expanded, not just receive premiere expansions?

          I want them too but like I said I was limiting each list to only 10 titles and they didn't make the cut for 10, largely because we have almost all of the missing music from video games and fans have made brilliant albums out of all the bits.

          If forced to pick only 10 out of the 60 I initially mentioned to get a definitive edition to my liking, my ultimate top 10 would I guess be

           

          • Star Wars
          • The Empire Strikes Back
          • Raiders of the Lost Ark
          • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
          • The Return of the Jedi
          • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
          • Earth Star Voyager
          • Hook
          • The Fellowship of the Ring
          • The Rise of Skywalker

          Those hit the sweet spot of needing access to elements fans just don't currently have / needing proper, professional work done to those elements that fans just wouldn't be able to do / and are just goddamn great, classic, amazing, legendary scores*.  Definitive editions of these scores would basically just get a ton of playtime for me and make me a very happy film score fan.

           

          Many of the other scores I mentioned are in one of these categories:

          • well, we have most of it already from various places, and fans have assembled pretty great albums to listen to for now
          • well I know I like the albums, so I assume I'd like an expansion
          • well, I liked what I heard in the film/show, so I'd probably like it outside of that
          • well, I like most of this composers stuff, so these scores from them I haven't heard yet are probably good too

          But the 10 I singled out stand taller above the rest for me.

           

          * (OK I know ESV isn't a legendary score but I really really really want it and would listen to it a lot)

          I suspect my boring 10 of expansions (not premieres) would be nine Williams Star Wars expansions and one IJ & the Temple of Doom expansion.

           

          Most scores, I don't know if much of anything exists outside of the OST - so I have no idea if expansions would be valuable in most cases.

          Usually if I watch a film after I already like the score album I notice if there's cool music in the film that isn't on the CD

           

          Like when I watch Temple of Doom "man, this music for Indy talking to Shortround is amazing"

           

          Of with Hook "Man, this music for the Never-feast is even better than the album version!"

           

          Or with TROS "man, this is the best version of Rey's theme I've ever heard"

           

          etc

          It's pretty rare that I'm acquainted with a score before I see a movie.  Usually it's one of two things:

           

          1)  Watches movie, buys score

          2)  Buys score, never watches movie.

           

          Usually when I watch a movie for the first time I'm not paying much attention to the score, and I rarely rewatch movies (except kids' movies).

          I wasn't talking about the first time I see a movie, I specifically said when I watch the movie (again) after I know the score album

           

          I watched the Star Wars and Indy films over and over again as a kid

          Yeah, I thought you were responding to my post above yours where I mentioned that I never have a clue whether there's more music, and was relating why that never really worked for old Mike - sorry if ! misread!

          My answer is pretty boring: all Star Wars films, followed by all Indiana Jones films. These are scores that really benefit from expanded releases, and really the only one I'm pretty satisfied with is Raiders. The SW OT is mostly complete, but the sound quality of course needs significant improvement. All the other scores have had good transfers of the elements for their albums, but they're missing awesome stuff.

          As of now, we've waited longer than Sirius Black was imprisoned in Azkaban...

           

           

          With latest Manakin Skywalker version of the score there is pretty much no reason to wait till official expansion

          There most definitely is, as much as I like Manakin's edit, it won't be nearly as comprehensive and as clean as a proper MM release would be. Same goes for any official expanded release coming from MM...

           

          The only time I've been fine with a fan edit was the awesome SonicAdventure masters of the Harry Potter sessions leaks almost a decade ago.

          For me it's Star Wars, Star Wars, Star Wars and perhaps Star Wars :lol:

          I want at least 18 CD box set by MM. Please don't wait the 50th anniversary to do it, it's too far, far away....
