Tomorrow is the last day KOTM will be on a screen here in Zurich. Very sad this came so fast. Good thing to have Bear McCreary's gorgeous score to keep the images of the movie alive until I can play it in glorious 4K @home big grin

Zurich? Lucky devil! smile

Just FYI, FYE is still selling the pressed discs. I ordered mine online and received it this week.

Managed to see this and loved every second. Daughter's Father's Day treat. She enjoyed it enough too though her mother sank into the seat for most of it wishing she was watching Rocketman. Same problem as some on here two and a half hours of big monsters bashing each other! So, what's not to like?

Loved the score too, and managed to get the real thing on cd. Can't get that damn Ifukube Godzilla theme out of my head, nor the Blue Oyster Cult cover. Full marks to McReary for incorporating these and other themes into his own score. Goes to show that some composers put the subject and the fans first and keep these things together. Just what I said should have been done with Elfman's Batman theme on further Batman films...

Just a word about track running order. I see by some reviews and the listing at Screen Archives that it's slightly different to mine. The Blue Oyster Cult cover and the classic Ifukube Main Title are tracks 6 and 9 on my second disc, whilst King of Monsters is track 5 and Mothra's Song and Ghidorah Theme are 6 and 7.

Other than that it's fine and has the 'Disc Made in Mexico' stamped on the case.

Saw the film a few nights ago, absolutely dreadful. Lame jokes, terrible one liners and a frankly stupid plot. Score was very good though.

I just bought the only 3D copy at Best Buy this morning. It also comes with the 2D version.

First screening of G:KOTM since it's cinematic run - got it yesterday on iTunes (4K, Dolby Atmos). I already noticed it before but it became painfully clear at home: Bear McCreary's awesome score got a back seat in the mix. His music so much deserved to be more up front! A serious flaw in this otherwise very enjoyable movie. Damn!

Yeah, I’m still loving this score and still play it regularly. It didn’t get designated to the ‘dusty shelf’ like so many after a few plays.
Still got a week or so to go here before the Blu-Ray comes out and I’ve got the 4K and 3D version ordered.
Reeeeeally hope that Bear gets the Kong vs Godzilla assignment.

Hey guys. Where can I get a real pressed CD at this point? (not a CD-R)

Are the ones dispatched from Amazon UK pressed or MOD?

It took me a little bit to really dig into this score and I am totally obsessed with “Rodan.” It’s a hell of a cue. It starts off feeling like something Elliot Goldenthal would have done and then at about the 2:32 mark, becomes this awesome rhythmic chant of the title of the cue. I can’t stop listening to it. Amazing work by Bear McCreary.
