Because Fox is now part of Disney?

Before the buy, Fox releases his music through Sony Classical or Milan Records, but now is part of Disney, i'm not surprise no physical releases by his part.

Quartet Records gave Book of Henry a physical CD two years after it's digital release, hopefully they can do the same for this (though we are still waiting for a physical releases of Black and Earth Days)

Black and Earth Days???

Black is really a Chris Tilton digital release though.

Thanks. Really helps.

By the way Earth Days now out of print (aka gone from) US iTunes store.

A very low key score. Theme nothing overly interesting. Similar to what Giacchino has done before. Chorus resembled Medal of Honor. Some very short cues that back in the old days would have never been released. Overall nothing happens. The lengthy cues are a non event sadly. Just nothing really there. Still you got to celebrate these kinds of scores are signed off and get released. Respect to Giacchino for delivering what was needed.

Yeah pretty meh score, even the main theme doesn't do too much for me.

I thought the article below was rather interesting. Giacchino talks about this score. What surprised me was that he said he usually waits, "to see a movie before deciding to do it." He accepted JoJo Rabbit just based upon its script. I thought most composers accepted a scoring assignment before being able to actually view a movie.

So far it seems some of our members aren't too thrilled with this score. I'm really interested in hearing what our members think of the movie. (Seeing Hitler as a comedic or satiric character is mind-boggling to me, but a lot of critics seem to have liked it.)

It wouldn't be a first time to imagine Hitler that way.

A few short decades ago some "genius" over in Britain decided a comedy series involving Hitler and his wife was a good idea. Somewhere close to a dozen episodes were made, but after the pilot aired, it so offended everybody it was canned after one episode.

And if you think the poor taste stopped at the series premise, it also included the name of the show:
"Heil Honey I'm Home!"

Justin, that sounds very tasteless. Glad it bombed.

So, you've never seen The Producers? The Great Dictator?

I have to say, I had no idea what this film was before tonight, other than looking at my screener and thinking it was an animated film of some sort. Well, it's pretty great. It walks a very difficult tightrope almost perfectly and the kid gives one of the great child performances ever. But everyone is wonderfully cast and the film has huge laughs and then gets you right in the gut, which is no mean feat. I would normally hate the anachronistic songs, but I was pretty amazed that they work perfectly. The score works wonderfully in the film. Obviously, it's not going to be for everyone, but it rises right to the top of what I've seen thus far. Last night, it was Marriage Story, a movie every critic is falling all over themselves about, which I found well acted but overlong and quite tedious - what I didn't find it was "searing" "devastatingly honest" - I mean, when a character is a director of extremely avant-garde theater in New York, do I believe for a second that he can get up and sing note perfect Being Alive from Company complete with the dialogue from the show? No, I don't. But this film, while quirky in an obvious way, just grabbed me and kept me involved from start to finish. Highly recommended.

I saw the film last week and loved it. It's very funny and touching, although it has some very dark moments in it. Overall it has a very light tone, and visually leans towards Wes Anderson films at times. Just a lot of fun mocking Nazis. Great.

The score is suitable and works very well in the film, and is very good. I think it's my favourite film of last year.
