Listening to "Anderton Escapes" and "The Conveyor Belt" now.

Unbelievable, this is a stunning improvement over the original album!!!!

This score truly is one of Williams's masterpieces, just as the film is one of Spielberg's most towering achievements.

Sorry, which segment is that? I'm just letting the whole thing wash over me at the moment. smile

I was absolutely obsessed with this film when it came out. I saw it 6 or 7 times, I had the toy 2054 Lexus on my desk. I got Colin Farrell's suit from the studio prop/costume auction from my dad as a birthday present.

I also obsessively tracked down every single one of the classical/pop songs used in the film, going as far as calling Fox Music and having them search through their licensing paperwork to find exactly which recording of "Moon River" was used for the brilliant shopping mall sequence.

I created a chronological sequence for the album, which of course turned out to be slightly inaccurate, haha, but I did my best, and burned my own 2-disc album including all the other music too. smile

This new album is a dream come true!!!!

Your enthusiasm is infectious lol! It’s towards the end of the album as an additional track... I am most intrigued by this cue.

Haha, glad to hear it!! smile

The new album is a revelation! I'm hearing so many instruments that were buried in the old album. The clarity is astounding!

I'm listening to the CDs all the way through, I'm only about 3/4 of the way through Disc 1 right now. I'm listening to "Freezing Water," which sounds like I'm there on the recording stage in 2002. smile

On that note, I never realized how close to the film's release the score was recorded. The liner notes say it was recorded over three days in April 2002, and then four more days in May 2002, finishing on May 17, 2002, only a month before the film and the album came out, just amazing! I wonder how they got the album finished and pressed that quickly?

Easy. The guys in charge were veritable pros.

Listening to this majestic score is making me want to rewatch the movie soon.

I hope we get a 4K disc with a new master, the Blu-Ray was rescanned from the original negative, but they forgot to apply the bleach bypass process that was applied to the original release prints, which was present on the DVD (presumably mastered from a release print), so the Bu-Ray is a bit too bright and colorful.

Based on one listen so far, it sounds pretty much identical to the version on the original album, except with MUCH more intense drumming and percussion in the background in parts.

Nonsense. It's a film full of terrible plotholes, pretending to be an edgy noir that has a completely nonsensical ending. An extraordinarily disappointing Spielberg effort. William's score is probably the best thing about it, but not enough to warrant me buying this edition. I'm glad for all you guys who enjoy this score and like to read your comments about it, but let's not pretend this film lives up to the hype.

The jetpack escape sequence has those little bits of “humor” that undercut the weight of the scene, but otherwise the film is absolutely fine - until the LA Confidential part. After that, the whole rest of the movie takes a bleached-out nosedive for me.

My goodness.

I have seen the light.

What I thought was one of my favorite films of all time is, in fact, terrible and without value.

I will, of course, be burning my Blu-Ray this afternoon as a result of this realization, and you're all naturally invited to the bonfire.

smile

Seriously, I still think it's a stone cold masterpiece, and there were a lot of critics who agreed with me. Ebert named it the best film of 2002 in his end of the year Top 10:

We all have different tastes . smile

Actually before this release popped-up I hadn't heard of Minority.. yes, I know I should, in-fact most 90s scores fell by the way-side somewhat, this title does interest me as it sounds political or similar, so some-think like Catch Me if you Can mould would be cool. Any-way, great stuff LLL, releasing Williams gets my respect, thanks.

Hey, if people are lobbying for AI to be reconsidered as some kind of modern masterpiece, as I've seen evidence of around here, then Minority Report is also fully entitled to be in consideration.
For the record, I think it is a somewhat flawed masterpiece.
It looks so unique and creates a brilliantly believable futuristic world.
It's got some great ideas and politics behind it - courtesy of the novel of course - and all the performers are pretty solid.
And it's another masterclass of brooding suspense and action from John Williams, totally aiding and benefiting the film.
I do agree with Shaun though, in that it suffers from a massive anti-climax during its final third.
