Has anyone got his copy of DH3?

Yes, I picked up my copy at last Monday's "Star Trek" event here in Hollywood. I have enjoyed listening to the score, what was unused in the film and the bonus tracks. The full 2 hours of score is a lot to get through, so I will make a shorter playlist of highlights for further listens, but it's all neat stuff.


Is there a chance to contact you outside this forum? smile


Depends on what the question is... wink


;-) I'll tell you, do you've any instant messaging tool like Skype? my mail is kusi81(at)gmx.net

What cue from Die Hard 3 was taken from Kamens episode from Amazing Stories?

What cue from Die Hard 3 was taken from Kamens episode from Amazing Stories?

Technically none. Kamen only re-recorded the majority of the "Zombies" cue from MIRROR, MIRROR, actually a distorted orchestral demo of his, for the finals of DIE HARD 2 ("Fight On the Wing Continues") and 3 ("Holly / Celebration" "Oh, Canada!").

So what is the deal with "The Foundry" cue? Did Kamen compose this for another film and was tracked in? What part of the film is it supposed to score? Wish the liners explained the bonus cues...

"The Foundy" is a piece of music composed by Alexander Mosolov, not by Kamen, which I don't think is noted on this release but is on the original album credits. If you read earlier in this thread, you can see where I asked the same question and Mutant answered. There is no further info in the noted on why this was used, unfortunately.


How could they not note this on the new release? I was interested in how this piece came to be. It's on the disc, credited correctly on the otherwise abysmal RCA release. How could this be overlooked?

Now that's interesting to learn... I haven't listened to that "Amazing Stories" score by Kamen since that album was released, so I guess I should check it out! That climactic "Fight On the Wing Continues" from DIE HARD 2 was an amazing surprise for me when I got the expanded Varese edition, as I never really recalled that cue from the film (It had been years since I had seen it).

Got this in Saturday and have been listening to it ever since. My first chance to have a good listen is at work because I work overnights.

I have to say so far my favorite tracks are, "Taxi Chase" "Subway Part 1 and 2"
"Infiltration" "Bank Invasion" "Johnny Comes Marching Home" and "Ode to Johnny"

But I still haven't gotten to all of Disc 2 just yet, so I'll comment more on those tracks later as I'm sure I'll find some great ones too.

As mentioned by another user some of Kamen's work is best presented as an album presentation rather than C&C. For this movie, I'm glad we got C&C and I love it all, but I'm sure I'll be making a shorter playlist sometime in the future.

I gotta be honest, I was always mesmorized by the Johnny Comes Marching Home music from the film since I saw the movie as a kid. Because of this movie I've spent many times humming that tune whenever I'm in a really creative mood.

There was a reason we didn't discuss "The Foundry" in the booklet--and that's about all I'm at liberty to say. At any rate, I wasn't able to glean any specific reason for the use of the track in the movie in my research. It may have just been Kamen's idea of a joke as he tended to add quite a lot of musical in-jokes to the DH scores.

This is stretching, but maybe he used the Iron Foundry there because the villain had just "found" the "Iron" shards that were switched for the real gold bars in the double-cross? Again, I know this is stretching...

It's just so odd that they would pay for the rights and have it appear so briefly. For like, 3 seconds before being cut off by more DH 1 temping. Weird.

It is indeed a great track, a summation of the Beethoven's 5th quote from DH1, "Johnny Comes Marching Home" and McClane's theme all in one grand cue. Any idea if this was intended for use in a specific scene?
