I've never seen the movie, and thus never heard the score either. Williams is one of my favorites, so I'll be picking it up.

Which of Williams' scores does 1941 most closely resemble?

Superman if I had to pick one.

Which of Williams' scores does 1941 most closely resemble?

I'd say a cross between MIDWAY and Amazing Stories: THE MISSION but without ever taking itself too seriously, and with the Irish tune "The Rakes of Mallow" and some great big band dance numbers thrown in for extra fun.

If you like John Williams at all I think this score is impossible not to like. That Sousa-on-crack march alone is one of his most enjoyable compositions ever. Can't wait to hear the missing material and the overall improved sound.

The first 150 people to purchase THE CAPE soundtrack via the La-La Land Records website will get their copy autographed by composer Bear McCreary.

Throw in Summer Glau and I'll buy two!

For those who haven't heard it before, here's what you can expect (from the French dub). Enjoy.

1941 EXPANDED -- 2 Disc set
Music by John Williams


This is how I felt when I saw this announcement:

the funniest bit of the film has to be the jaws pisstake at the beginning with the periscope of the jap sub and the naked girl swimming.

That is priceless.

From that clip, you'd expect two hours of nothing but people screaming big grin.

Both are must buys. 1941 is a John Williams score, for a Steven Spielberg movie, in expanded form (that's three reasons), and that end credits piece sounds lovely. I have never seen the movie, so I'm looking forward to the first listen.

And Bear McCreary continues to give us good music. I've only seen the first episode of the Cape series and thought it wasn't very good, but listening to the music is something I'll definitely enjoy.

No, she is MINE! You hear me -- MINE! MINE! MINE!!!!

It's funny - I was probably a week too late in asking Fox for the Firefly sondtrack rights. If we had got the rights, we would havee had the Summer Glau Trifecta of Firefly, Terminator: SCC and now The Cape.

My favorite moment is when Slim Pickens first sees Axis commanders Toshiro Mifune and Christopher Lee together in the sub.

"Ah, knew it! Yer all in cahoots!"

My favorite exchange of dialogue from the film:

Colonel "Madman" Maddox: Identify yourself!
Captain Wild Bill Kelso: Captain Wild Bill Kelso, United States Army Air Corps. Where the hell am I?
Colonel "Madman" Maddox: Barstow. Where are you coming from?
Captain Wild Bill Kelso: San Francisco... been chasing a Jap squadron for a day and a half. I lost 'em somewhere over Fresno.
Telephone Operator: I'm from Moline, Illinois.
Captain Wild Bill Kelso: Tough Shit.

Why did the wrong Belushi have to die? frown
