It's an absolutely stellar release - one we were told might never happen, and yet here it is. I have to say, these past 2 years since Airplane was released, heck ever since the Blue Box really, have been magical.

My only complaint............. I hope they increase the size of the CD cover thumbnail on their site for use in iTunes or other music software. 600x600 would be ace wink

Still can't believe this is coming out at long last I really thought this would be stuck in limbo for eternity! Gives me hope for other grail releases like The Black Hole and Salem's Lot smile

Those sound samples for Slipstream sound amazing!

AFAIR this was one of the best of the "later" Bernstein scores, especially in view of the many mediocre ones he churned out during the 80s (Legal Eagles, Three Amigos, Spies Like Us, etc). It's great that the music to this flawed but interesting Mark Hamill-starrer finally gets a release. Count me in. smile

Who are these "LeHah" and " Slipstream" people of whom you speak?

I don't think I've ever come across these names on this message board before?

PS: Ordered

I'll have a listen to any samples I can find for this later.

But since it was initially mentioned about a month ago, I watched the movie for the first time so that I could sample the score.

Dreadful film, and I can't actually remember hearing much score throughout.
Although I'm not sure if this was clouded by the fact that I wasn't enjoying the movie.

This'll have to do for now...

I saw this film when it first came out on video and have avoided it since. HOWEVER the music made an immediate impression right from the very beginning of the titles, it was pretty much the only thing that got me through all nine grueling hours of this 102 minute film.

This is without a doubt one of Bernstein's best scores. Perseverance should be commended for getting it out there, finally!!!

All I ever hoped for and then some.

I preordered a copy. I just hope theres some still available on the 13th... I'd like to make this into a gift for a couple people.


So pleased for you Lehah!

Will have to wait till this evening to hear the samples, when the kids aren't screeching around.

Here's a better one - that one's a bit dark/blurry - the color/brightness/contrast etc have been corrected to match the final artwork....

^Where'd you find that?

This is one of those films that I probably never would've heard of if it wasn't for forums like this. I watched the film on YouTube (it's on there in its entirety with commercials) and, despite a few interesting ideas (and the score), I have to say it was quite boring. The best part of the film is Bob Peck and it's such a shame he passed away at the young age of 53. His career, at least in this country, should've soared after his role in Jurassic Park as the game warden. Hell, his line "clever girl" has become an Internet meme.

It's funny how history treats films. I learned that when I was working at MGM as a studio temp, organizing the CEO's personal DVD collection. So many films come out, vanish after a week, and are never heard of again. No filmmaker intentionally sets out to make a movie that'll just vanish into the ether but sometimes it just happens.

Anyone here who hasn't done so should go out and watch the BBC miniseries Edge of Darkness. Pronto. His performance is jaw-droppingly good.

...on my hard drive! I designed the booklet/tray/etc for this one. A very kind thanks goes out to Robin for the opportunity to do so!
