We miss so much those special weekends in the 80s and 90s when John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith each had a new film opening. It just didn’t get any better. The two masters of the period complement each other so well. These days having a new Deluxe Edition by each of them in the same CD Club batch is as close as we can get to that.

We have received so many requests over the years for a Deluxe Edition of Jerry Goldsmith’s score for Joe Dante’s 1998 film Small Soldiers. An epic action/adventure score with a heroic march, Goldsmith had a lot of fun with this film and it shows. This is another epic expansion and remaster. Our 40th Anniversary year and the 20th anniversary of the film seemed like the perfect time to revisit the film that could be considered the first, edgier version of Toy Story.

When teenager Alan (Gregory Smith) buys a set of Commando Elite action figures, he's unaware that they have been programmed with military technology. The toys, including leader Chip (Tommy Lee Jones), spring to life and start taking their directives seriously, beginning by "killing" their enemies, the toy Gorgonites. But Archer (Frank Langella) and the Gorgonites won't go down without a fight. Alan gets caught in the middle of the war, as does his neighbor and crush, Christy (Kirsten Dunst).

Good release, not so good design. Why the extra charge of 5$ on the release everybody is claiming?

Excellent. Most excellent. Two complaints (of course) and two questions: Almost Gold should be Almost Sold. Maybe Jerry G's Ss look like Gs. Also, great to have sound clips ready on announcement day, but why are 3 of the 5 sound clips of cues we already know from the original album? Is the Universal logo music the film take? I'LL KNOW. Haha but really. Mike M?

If I had to guess...maybe licensing from DreamWorks is more expensive somehow? Or perhaps re-use fees having to do with the additional late session (over 12 minute which were left off the expanded unmentionable)? In any case it's $5 they probably decided they needed to charge and it's $5 I'm more than willing to pay for such a substantial Goldsmith expansion.

Holy cow, amazing release!

Thrilled about the Heathers encore too! I just revisited Heathers (I'm playing Kurt in the musical version) and was bummed to find the soundtrack long out-of-print and fetching absurd prices on Amazon. Thank you Varese and serendipitous timing!

A Varese typo on a Goldsmith DE? I'm shocked... :-/

How come John Williams never scored animation (unless I am mistaken)?
He would have been great at it!
brm

Well it was motion capture so not exactly "animation" ...but Williams did score Tintin which was certainly not a live action film, and did a great job of it, to boot.
