(Similarly, having been without movie theaters for 4 1/2 months, I still have no desire to start streaming movies. Am old.)

I'm all about theatrical movies and blu-ray presentations, Scott, but have to say, I do love the Criterion Channel! :-)


I love that streaming exists, and that so many people can use it to watch great and rare films. It's just not for me; at least, not yet.

I thought this score would never get released. It’s been on my wish list for so long I expected it to be the last one that never got crossed off!

Didn't LLL recently mention/confirm this, when they answered a question about it, saying they had enquired about it, but Sony had something planned themselves?

It was something to that effect, and IIRC it was in regards to the Ghostbusters franchise in general. Sure enough, a few months later, Sony released the original film's Bernstein score.

I believe the majority of scores released on the Masterworks imprint are CDR’s/on demand at least those released in the U.S. I prefer a pressed cd. Let’s hope that’s what we get!

In fact there was a classical CD on the Sony label that came this year that turned out to be a CDR (thankfully I got it from Amazon so I could return it no questions asked)....and those in/who bought it from Europe said theirs was pressed.

You "own" the movies you purchase via iTunes and can watch them in perp. There's no monthly subscription charge either. Its the only streaming model I use.

I have no recollection of Ghostbusters II but I like just about everything Randy Edelman does. Hopefully there's a CD release.

Great news to hear and so glad that the masters were found! This is one of my few remaining holy grails still left, so I am really looking forward to it. Edelman's score is not as amazing as Bernstein's, but it is still a really fun listen and has some pretty good dark and foreboding and ominous cues that should be a treat to hear for the first time!

Here's the "Finale/ End Credits" that somebody ripped from the blu-ray. The editing is rough, but it will give those who don't know or don't remember this score a good idea of what it's like:



I've always liked this score, which is loaded with themes - it has an enjoyably light love/family theme, a fun heroic theme, a bouncy "comedy" theme, a swirling "supernatural" theme, and a number of other touches. I'm happy that it's finally getting released after over 30 years.

1989 was a great year! We had BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II, GHOSTBUSTERS II, INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE, BATMAN, LETHAL WEAPON 2 and WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S. I started 7th grade that year too. Good times!

Henry, don't forget Jerry's Star Trek V. Those first couple bars in the video above your post gave me the V vibes.

I don't know how I forgot STAR TREK V? Especially since the house that we moved into in 1989 had the house number 1701, just like the Enterprise!smile
