I'm not recalling many late 80's teen comedies that are bittersweet. Maybe Say Anything? Can't Buy Me Love seems like the best guess so far.

More third rate titles. What a disappointment Intrada has become!

Partially agree. I haven't bought anything from Intrada for several months now. Kritzerland has been getting all my money. BUT I think Intrada will redeem themselves soon. It seems ON THE WATERFRONT is coming and (maybe? possibly? hopefully?) THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (based on rumors).

I doubt that Aug 20 titles will hold any interest for me. (Unless "Peggy Sue Got Married" is one).

Please god let one of the two be Men Don't Leave. The movie is wonderful and the score really stands out.

Somehow I am hoping it won`t be PARADISE because I am still hoping for a release which couples PARADISE with Newman`s GROSS ANATOMY. Both by David Newman and both are Touchstone. And both would fit easily on one CD. PARADISE is around 32 minutes and GROSS ANATOMY is around 28 minutes. And both are fantastic melodic orchestral scores. PARADISE is a great americana score while GROSS ANATOMY is a score with a great Bach like main title and some wonderful sentimental piano passages. It also incorporates some nice electronic elements. Both scores have musical similarities and are only 2 years apart (1989 and 1991). That would be a perfect pairing.

Has there been some announcement regarding On The Waterfront?

GROSS ANATOMY slipped my mind (and the minds of most, I would assume). However, I think Roger mentioned that the two scores come from different composers.

Still, that would've been an awesome double-header.

That`s why I said that I hope it isn`t Paradise smile Since Intrada indeed mentioned that the scores are from 2 different composers. If it would be Paradise it couldn`t be coupled with Gross Anatomy.
Btw Paradise coupled with Mr. Destiny (also both Touchstone and both americana scores) would be a nice future release.

I'm endlessly amused that some people are saying Intrada has fallen to releasing "lesser" material. What dull perceptions people have of the world and their expected entitlements. There is a bucket of ice water to soak your head with in the corner of shame. Get to it.

What LeHah said.

Intrada has had a great year and while I wish they'd do more Golden Age stuff too, I appreciate the variety they have from all decades. Far more often than not they put out something very interesting, no matter when it was written.

Infantilism posing as sophistication.

Agree with SchiffyM. I'm actually more interested in semi obscure scores from the 70s, 80s, and 90s than I am in all the blockbuster holy grail titles that people seem to want.

It really amazes me how a simple statement of opinion and personal preference like this can result in name-calling and outraged posts verging on personal attacks. Some folks here have pretty thin skins or low thresholds for outrage if this feels like an attack on your tastes.

I only partially agree with the above statement (due to my PERSONAL PREFERENCES), because I realize that many folks here like the recent releases. But, jeez, give the guy a break...give him the benefit of the doubt that he wasn't trying to insult you (at least before he started getting called names).

I've seen plenty of attempts to disparage other folks' taste on this board and this didn't strike me that way at all.

Ray, respectfully, I see it differently. It is the quote you cite that is the attack. And it's a completely groundless and ignorant attack, given that one of the two CDs is unknown to us. How exactly are we supposed to find that "opinion" worthy of this forum?

Furthermore, a statement like "more third rate titles" without even the courtesy of the slightest explanation is not a statement of personal preference -- it's a blanket dismissal offered as if it's an obvious truth. Does he not care for television scores? Or the work of iZLER? Or any scores (no matter what they turn out to be) from the '80s and '90s? He offers no such insight. Again, hard to find much use for that.

By all means, anybody is free to criticize any release. Something like "I don't care for synth scores" or "I'd prefer something from the silver age" or "I listened to this and find it wanting"… anything. But the aspersions cast here without even the courtesy of the slightest clarification is not a statement of opinion or preference, but a useless sucker punch. I don't see what there is to defend in it.

Even if he provided a five paragraph essay backing up his opinion, he would have been tared and feathered by some on this board.

I'm mainly criticizing the form of the response. It's perfectly OK to disagree with his statement or say it doesn't add much to the discussion.
I'm just saying that I don't find much use for calling the poster "infantile"...that doesn't really add much to the discussion either and as I said, verges on a personal attack, when the original poster did not target anyone specifically.

If you had responded the way you posted just now. I would have no qualms. (BTW, I wasn't just picking on you...your posts are often interesting and well-thought out. There was a least one other post that seemed more interested in calling out the perceived personal failings of the original poster and insulting him then in answering his opinion).

I suppose I should lighten up...this is the internet after all. :/

Oh please. If someone were to go into the latest Kritzerland thread and post the exact same comment about the latest boring Golden Age release, i doubt very much you'd be defending the poster from the cane-wielding mob (who would be on the attack and throwing a fit (especially the thin skinned underwear guy)) the same way you're doing so here. It's no coincidence the crybabies in this thread are Golden Agers - they are the biggest whiners on this board.

Given the whining from the 80's music fans on this thread or any other when they think their music is under attack (it isn't...especially not from me), I don't think your generalization holds water.
I'm not a Golden Ager anyway, I like film music from every era, including the 80's. If anything my favorite scores probably fall as much Silver Age as anything.
Again, I'm just arguing against rude postings...yours included. But I'm tilting at windmills.
Flail away boys, I'm done here.

Are film score fans the biggest whiners period?

Ooh, the label does not release something that I´m interested in - so I have to bash it!

Ooh, this other guy likes music that I do not like - so I have to bash him!

Ooh, someone proposes to be fair - how boring! I have to bash him!


These responses seem to be standard among film score fans.

Tragic.
