Goldsmith's Score Reviewed
This is the link to the Music From The Movies
Also I have review of the score at Jerry Goldsmith Online here:
is quite obvious, this site has not been updated in almost half a year
now. This is due to a couple of things. First, there isn't really much Timeline news out there anymore. Second, I personally don't have enough time (no
pun intended) to keep up with the site.
I'd rather not take the site completely offline because, being the
web purist that I am, I think that once information is posted on the web
it should remain there forever. I'm sure that the image and news
archives still provide visitors with something to do on a rainy weekday.
However, I'm currently paying for web hosting on a monthly basis and
can no longer afford to continue. The Amazon.com commissions just don't
cut it anymore.
If there is a loyal Timeline fan out there who has access
to a web server and would like to donate hosting space to the site, I'm
sure myself and the Timeline community in general would be very
grateful to you! Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you're interested in helping out.
Unfortunately, if I can't make suitable arrangements then I'll be
forced to close the site within a couple of months.
Thanks, everyone, for being such loyal fans over the past couple of
years! The Timeline buzz may be gone, but at least we have a
chance to keep this site up as a memorial for years to come.

Varese to Release Goldsmith Score
sends word that Varese Sarabande will officially release Jerry
Goldsmith's un-used score to Timeline at some point in 2004.
The disc will be a deluxe edition disc utilising the SACD format.
I finally got to hear this score and I must say
it is rather good and not at all the rejected score we all thought.
Incidentally you might be interested in visiting www.musicfromthemovies.com
who have an interview with Richard Donner on the music, which he
explains more on why Goldsmith's score was not used.

The Science Behind Timeline
clued me in to this article about the science behind Crichton's many
novels, including Timeline. There is also some speculation in
the article about Crichton's latest book, Prey, being
turned into a film in 2005!
Here's an excerpt from the article:
Timeline vividly depicts the allure of
quantum computing and the exploration of parallel universes, giving
viewers just enough hard science to seed party conversations with
impressive tidbits. But Crichton is a cautious evangelist: Each of his
tales is a sermon on the law of unintended consequences. Like Bill Joy,
whom he's name-checked in interviews, Crichton sees a future forged
equally by the hand of man and the hammer of the gods.

Box Office Numbers
isn't doing so well at the box office. As of today, it has taken in
around $13 million. Not too spectacular, but I'm not one to base the
quality of a film on how much money it makes. I enjoyed the movie,
that's all that counts. For more details on Timeline's take,
check out Box
Brian Tyler's Soundtrack
so you've seen Timeline once... twice... maybe even three
times! But do you have Brian Tyler's fantastic soundtrack? It hit the
stores weeks ago so you should! If not, check out the new Timeline
soundtrack CD at Amazon.com.

What Can I Say? The Critics Were Wrong
folks, what can I say? The critics said Timeline was a bore.
They said the acting was stale. They said the plot was weak. They were
I don't know about the rest of you, but I say... what a GREAT
I caught the 11:50am showing today during my lunch break. After
reading so many negative reviews of the film, I wasn't sure what to
expect, but I had faith in Richard Donner and the cast and crew who
worked tirelessly over the past year and a half to bring Crichton's book
What a fun film! The action was fantastic. Some of the battle scenes
were breathtaking. The acting? Sure, it may have been weak here and
there, but overall, it wasn't half bad! Gerard Butler stole the show as
Andre, of course. Frances O'Connor's Kate was just as I imagined her
from the book.
Brian Tyler's score? Man oh man, I haven't heard movie music that
good since Howard Shore's incredible score for The Two Towers
Timeline is a film that doesn't take itself too seriously.
It's a roller coaster ride, a great escape from the daily grind. I will
definitely be seeing it again. Thank you, Mr. Donner!
