No, I mean I missed the order window. At least you have one coming. My hope now is for a third pressing or some 'sane' price on eBay.

Tears In the Rain - Hans Zimmer & Benjamin Wallfisch... How can they be credited as composers on a Vangelis original track ???

Vangelis was credited in the end credits of the movie.

This isn't anything new. Don Davis and John Ottman are credited for the tracks in JPIII and Superman Returns respectively that use material originally written by Williams, and James Newton Howard isn't credited on The Dark Knight Rises, though I'm sure at least some of his Batman themes must have been used in the film.

I know I said I was not going to see this, but my husband forced me into it because he had free tickets from work and he wanted to see it. Oh my, could we just be a little bit longer and please turn it up, I can not hear the 6 year old banging on a synthesizer in his parents garage!! The worst movie experience I have had in several years! Nothing like seeing viewers covering up their ears as the sound (some people try and call it music) vibrates everything in a 10 mile radius and then walking out! 3 people left 25 minutes in, then another group of 4 left 40 minutes in, then another couple left 1 hour in, leaving my husband and myself and one other couple to finish the movie. They say Zimmer/Wallfisch were paying homage to Vangelis? I would call it more of an insult. The most laughable part, my husband was the one that wanted to see it, I had to elbow him 3 times for snoring and the other times he fell asleep, he was woken up with BRAAM!

Agree so far as it pertains to the music. I always bring ear plugs with me to movies because they are almost always too loud. But on occasion the audio in the movie being mixed too loud caused me to miss some dialog that wasn't audible behind the music while wearing ear plugs. Not to mention those ridiculous gunshots that were crazy loud. I enjoyed the film quite a bit but the score not so much.

You view movies with ear plugs in???

I wish I lived in your area. I have the exact opposite problem. The audio in films is usually too quiet, causing you to sometimes have to strain to make out dialogue. This becomes especially annoying when people in the theater are talking. Count your blessings over having to cope with crazy loud gunshots when you can at least follow the narrative in peace.

Wow, the Ebay guy sold 68 cd sets for $190 each, this guy is a real pro!

Actually, he didn't.
He sold most of them for 'only' $50-$70. If you click on -68 sold-, there is purchase history.


He just sold his final copy for $250. Crazy

For me the film got the score it deserved.

It is boring, overlong, with a magnificent surface and some great ideas that lose their power quickly because the story stumbles around, making big exclamation points when a lot of it is just hot air.

Villeneuve did not understand the original filmĀ“s appeal at all. In a way, he made the same mistake that Scott made with his two ALIEN prequels.


Felt very much the same way after seeing it this past weekend. SO much wasted opportunity (I had pretty much the same reaction after seeing Arrival/.

And yes, it was too damn LOUD in spots, for no apparent narrative or aesthetic reason.

That said, It looked fantastic. Perhaps Roger Deakins will finally get an Oscar.

Yeah I have concert ear plugs that I bring with me everywhere because movies are generally too loud and also my church I go to most weekends. They let me hear most detail without problems. The ridiculously loud movies in theaters is part of why I like to watch movies at home more often. I can adjust the audio to whatever volume I want and turn on subtitles so I don't miss stuff.

I'm the same way actually with preferring to wait a few months to watch movies at home these days. But again, for the opposite reason: I can't stand low theater volumes and especially people chatting over the movie. Plus it's usually cheaper to buy the Blu-ray than it is to purchase a ticket, for whatever reason.

But he somehow did know there wouldn't be a 3rd limited pressing. .....that stinks a bit don't you think? Also the announcement of a regular 2-cd edition is right after he sold his final copy on Ebay. This can't be a coincedence. Am I the only one thinks something is not right with this whole limited edition story.

So now a regular retail release is coming with identical contents for $14. Truly the most bizarre score release of the year...

Do you think I can sue the record label for cheating/lying/robbing me by persuading me to buy the first (limited) edition for a higher price? I'm taking my coat and go looking for a good lawyer... smile frown

The big losers are those that are paying big bucks on Ebay for a so called limited edition.

How can there be a limited edition when the same album contents are made generally available within a few weeks?

I admit I bought the "limited edition" from Epic but my 320 kbps download wasn't available because download limit had been reached. They don't respond to emails. I've now purchased the lossless download from 7-Digital and will donate the CDs to Cancer Research UK if/when they arrive and learn the lessons of this experience.

Well, it WOULD be Blade Runner. Instead of waiting 12 years for an album, we get a download, TWO limited editions and then a standard release- and they are all IDENTICAL (other than perhaps some packaging detail). Yes, bizarre but it's Blade Runner. Should have been expected.

It's up on Amazon as well.

https://www.amazon.com/Runner-Original-Motion-Picture-Soundtrack/dp/B076DQVT9Y/ref=sr_1_7?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1508246253&sr=1-7&keywords=blade+runner+2049

If this wasn't this sad, it would be hysterical.

I'm saving up all my frustrations, and laughter for when that first pressing arrives in the mail. It will be "interesting" to see what actually arrives.
