So Amazon US has it as an import, or had it as an import? I don't see it anywhere on Amazon US. If it is currently available for import on Amazon US, could someone provide a link?

If it isn't available there, where would be the best place to order it from, as I live in the US? The Germany site? Is that Amazon Germany?

Sorry for all the questions, I do not have a lot of experience ordering internationally.

Is this CD definitely pressed, and not someone burning a CD-R and trying to pass it off?

Thanks!


I guess the German Amazon site is the only one where you can order the CD right now:

I donĀ“t know whether it is a CD-R - but on the site it says it is distributed via Sony Classics.

Sorry if my post was unclear...I was stating that Amazon US had KON TIKI as an import now, when originally I had to get the CD at Amazon.ca.
So far, Amazon US does NOT have the CARRIE CD even as an import (maybe later?). But for now, anyone can order it from Amazon.de. I'm in the US and order from .uk and .fr all the time with no problem. (Just costs more in postage).
I have no idea if it is a CDR or not, but KON TIKI was a pressed CD.

UPDATE: I tried ordering the CARRIE CD from Amazon.de and it won't let me order because it says the item cannot be shipped to my address. I never had this problem with .ca .uk or .fr.
Don't know if the problem is peculiar to Germany or to this CD.
It's possible that since the release date is not until Nov 29, maybe it will allow it after that date (or not).
I guess I'll have to be patient and see what happens then.

Can you try Amazon Japan? It's same item number.

This is encouraging but weird. Amazon now has for pre-order an import red vinyl LP (Dec 12).
I'm hoping this means that eventually the German import CD will be made available.

That is one awesome looking presentation.

So this film turned out completely forgettable like, the remakes of FRIDAY THE 13TH, HALLOWEEN, THE FOG, BLACK CHRISTMAS... Hollywood never learns. How is it possible to NOT remember Donaggio's score to CARRIE. It's one of the best scores, ever!

Agreed about the remakes, but while Donaggio's score is the better one (IMHO) Beltrami does a better than decent job nonetheless.

I was casting no aspersions on Beltrami's score.

It's currently listed on us amazon too as another shitty CD-R.

http://www.amazon.com/Carrie-Marco-Beltrami/dp/B00GCWDJ3U/ref=pd_sim_sbs_m_1

Has anyone received the CD in/from Eu yet? I am still waiting for mine to show up since it took amazon de forever to ship it and I had to re-order from UK instead. Can anyone confirm if the EU version is actually pressed?

My shipment was delayed to December 19.

Fortunately, iTunes Germany finally offered it for download last week. So at least I can listen to it now.

My order seems delayed (I ordered it on Amazon.de). The item is out of stock since its "supposed" release date, on Nov. 29th. I'm afraid this release is about to be canceled. frown

I have just checked with the seller of the CD I ordered through Amazon UK - he hasn't shipped it yet and will double check if it is actual score album and if the disc is pressed and if there is any problem he should let me know - and I'll let you all know too...

I guess nobody has actually seen the CD yet?

During the night, I received an email from Amazon.de
I didn't speak German since 1993 but I understood that my order is delayed until Dec. 19.
At least, it hasn't been canceled ...

Wait til you see the film. You won't even notice any score!!!

OK... just got my shipping notice from Amazon UK seller... no more messages from him so I suppose it should be a pressed score CD... ordered it from this seller:

www.amazon.co.uk/Carrie-Marco-Beltrami/dp/B00GCWDJ3U/ref=aag_m_pw_dp?ie=UTF8&m=A38ABQRLD368KU

If you want to wait for the clarification I'll definitely post confirmation as soon as my package arrives.

Pretty sure it's CD-R, not pressed.

Just ordered mine from Amazon US, where it's listed as CD-R on demand.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GCWDJ3U/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's listed as an import, label Sony Classical, I am pretty sure this is the only format. I haven't heard any plans for a pressed CD for a very long time, so I am confident it isn't happening.

This must be THE MOST POINTLESS remake ever!
It's actually not that bad, with good performances all round, neat, unfussy direction and decent special FX.
BUT, in comparison to DePalma/Donaggio's classic original, it pales in every way.
It's mainly scene-for-scene and has the same dialogue, but it worked so much better in the 70's than it does today.
The other main problem is, in the original, Spacek was believable as the gawky, plain Carrie (who did blossom later on with the help of make-up etc) but Moretz is already too pretty and attractive to start with, so I never bought into it quite as much (she's arguably much better looking than the rest of the cast from the outset!!).
The weak score was really felt (by me) during the final battle between Carrie and her mum. Where Donaggio had that amazing little spooky piano piece running under the attack/stair tumble, all we get here is the usual trademarked sound design, that kills pretty much everything it underscores these days.
I didn't catch any Carrie theme by Beltrami, just some piano? and guitar moments that attempted to be heartfelt. This isn't a slam, I like Beltrami and have hope for him in the future, but this is quite lame and the whole film is stillborn to me.
