Didn't he also say it was better than an Oscar?  ;)

Just adding to KC's reply, I wanted to point out that this version of Dee Barton's High Plains Drifter is NOT the original recording and is instead a new recording probably by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus (conducted by Paul Bateman or Nic Raine.)

The original recording still remains unreleased. I just wanted to make this clear in the event that someone may purchase this double CD and not realising that these are not original recordings.

A Pretty enjoyable listen nonetheless, it was also released in the UK in a 4 disc version on the 20th Feb 2006

Hi All and a Happy New Year.
Good luck to all who have decided to undertake the dreaded New Years resolution, and for those who haven't 
Well, you're just being too damn good!  ;)

Kidding of course.

I was going to say my old smoking addiction (once again) ::)

But I wanted to get a jump on things this time around and actually smoked my last one nearly 4 months ago! Yes amazing as it sounds, I think the real thing that got to me was the guilt, a pure guilt and how much the people around me didn't like me smoking, everytime I lit up it felt like hell. Some 3 or 4 months ago I just really got fed up of smoking and I just decided to put a stop to it. Not very exciting to read I know, but just thought I would let Lilly, Lin and Satu know, as they especially expressed an interest last year, which I found extremely encouraging.

Regarding The Snowman:
After it's first showing in the UK on Channel Four and it's first showing on US TV, a different intro was sometimes used. David Bowie featured in these alternate versions with the same speech made in the previous intro by Raymond Briggs. Universals DVD The Snowman & Father Christmas, released in the UK in 2000 uses the David Bowie intro BUT the Bowie intro is missing from some Sony DVD's even though it is clearly marked on the packaging. I think Ch 4 have since also used another intro which was directed by Roger Mainwood, I think that's 3 different versions in all.
BTW There are also different versions in regards to the hugely successful song featured in the film 'Walking in the air' sung by Peter Auty, some versions do not contain a vocal performance at all and instead purely the instrumental score accompanies the sequence.

While I'm here Santa delivered:

Miami Vice Season II 6 disc

Schindler's List 2 disc (DTS)

Fistful of Dynamite 2 disc

Wait until Dark

Jackie Brown 2 disc (DTS)

Apollo 13 2 disc (DTS)

Tony Rome

The Detective

The Boris Karloff Collection 3 disc (Tower of London / The Black Castle / The Climax / The Strange Door / Night Key)

Boris Karloff Icons of Horror 2 disc (The Boogie Man Will Get You/The Black Room/The Man They Could Not Hang/Before I Hang)

100 years of Horror 5 disc

Hey! Good for you Richard, I still have my deck (Thorens) permanently rigged up to my Amp, which I updated a couple of weeks ago. Was test driving some of my vinyl just to hear how it sounds with the new amp, and some of that vinyl does beat the CD equivalent, no doubt about it. I don't tend to buy any new vinyl material but like to pick up some classics from time to time and still have a lot of my original vinyl collection. I think the last album I brought was Sammy Davis Live at the Coconut Grove from 62 or 63 I think?

Just to put a stop to any possible confusion, there is a German Bootleg an unlicensed CD that appears on ebay (rather expensively) which actually states Lennie Niehaus as one of the composers. Mr Niehaus has of course never composed a Dirty Harry Movie.
I've pasted an image below, but avoid at all costs and wait for the genuine releases

Dirty Harry Lalo Schifrin
Magnum Force Lalo Schifrin
The Enforcer Jerry Fielding
(The only reason Lalo did not score The Enforcer was because it clashed with Voyage of the Damned which he also scored and received an Oscar nomination)
Sudden Impact Lalo Schifrin
The Dead Pool Lalo Schifrin

The Enforcer CD is in the can and ready for release early 2007 that same year will see the release of Sudden Impact and The Dead Pool will follow in time.

You can take all this information as 100% gospel  :)

(sorry not been around for a while been busy happy Christmas to all members)

Thanks Agent, thanks Gant, had not seen the Parallax view for so long, watched it last night, very good to see it again.
Hemlock also love The Sand Pebbles, that's a nice edition, some good extra material on there.

I also have this on the way

BTW Does anyone own the 100 Years of Horror DVD collection? I think it contains some 20+ half hour episodes, wondered if it was a quality produced show or not? I think it is out on a 5 Disc Box set.

A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever
John Keats

Interesting Holden, I'm wondering if this is going to be a film that would ultimately benefit from a re-edit, incorporating Letters from Iwo Jima and by injecting some emotion via an accomplished composer. It's not that I haven't enjoyed Clint's last couple of movies, but I do tend to agree that emotional aspects sometimes seem almost "capped" by Clint's hesitance to let go when scoring. To be honest, I'm not a fan of Clint's contributions in the role as composer. In an ideal world, I'd love for him to employ the talents of a "John Williams" caliber of composer, maybe for just a spotting session and take on another point of view. It's surprising how the music score can shift the emotional aspect of a movie or a character. Clint's music is Melancholy, there's no better word for it, but I think that's due mainly to his lack of experience as a film composer, I'd much rather him stick to what he is best at, which is working behind or in front of the camera.
