I didn't say it was better.

Well, I'm sold. I wonder if the new music is for sections that were previously unscored, or if he's rewritten sections he's not as happy with. Back to the Future was only the second time Silvestri had ever written anything for an orchestra, so it wouldn't surprise me if he wanted to polish it off a little bit now that the whole thing is going to be performed live.

My guess would be that he's re-written it a little. The film has a lot of score to it as is, and I can't really imagine any scenes that would benefit from more of it. Either that or there will be some sort of overture to start with.

Looks like we'll be getting a new set in October. The hubbub on Blu-ray.com (where I found this, someone said it's an insert in the new Jurassic Park Blu) is that there will possibly be a new transfer of the first film, citing the recent improvement Universal's new Apollo 13 disc, but we'll just wait and see I guess.

Bourne Ultimatum? Goldfinger? (Although "From Russia With Love" is excellent) Men In Black 3? (Since the second was quite bad, anything would've been better) There must be some others.
....A Nightmare on Elm St 3, The Exorcist 3, Halloween 3, Iron Man 3, Toy Story 3, Three Colours: Red, Before Midnight, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Return of the Living Dead 3, Paranormal Activity 3, Evil Under the Sun, LOTR Return of the King.

No remaster? Feh. This is one of those releases that could actually use a fresh 4K re-do.
