Miles off.
Despite being famous for his part in the band, that is nothing close to what shinoda is about.
Currently he sits in the hip hop/electronic/dub field.
I have great faith in his abilities and have only started enjoying his music production POST Linkin Park.
As I mentioned before, TO ME, I have nothing against Shinoda or Linkin Park.

I just want the original soundtrack. That's it. There's nothing wrong with the original soundtrack, judging from the trailers and crowd reception from early viewings, so there was no reason to change it in the first place.

The rescoring I believe opened more doors for the International Distribution. It also allows Merentau films to get their foot in the door with Hollywood and future film releases.

6 minute interview with Mike Shinoda and Joe Trapanese on working on scoring The Raid. Good info on history of the soundtrack, versions, etc.

It's gotten rave reviews and feedback when it was playing with the original score, so it's absolute bullshit that it would need some kind of rescore in order to get some kind of 'foot in the door'.

When you've got a good product, you need to be willing to stand by that product for what it is, and not for what other people want it to be.

I'm sure that if Gareth had just said: 'Listen, this is the movie, and this is how it's gonna stay, including the soundtrack!' , then yeah, maybe company A wouldn't have picked it up for whatever stupid reason, but I'm sure company B, or companmy C, or company D WOULD have picked it up.

Why!? Cause it's a good movie that has already proven itself wherever it was shown. So there's absolutely no need whatsover to now go in there and edit and change stuff.

I just hope it doesn't get toned down in any way, shape or form, and that we're getting the same cut as was shown on the festivals.

You gotta remember that most of the world is not full of martial arts film purists such as ourselves. The important thing is they are releasing the film in a way where the entire world would want to see it.

Just think of the audiences that would think the Inonesian people in the film are a culture they are ignorant about. Then the title says score by Mike Shinoda (just using an example here) and the audience may be more inclined to

In all, I can't disagree with my boy Yi. It's been about two decades of people getting to see the movies when they want to see it. just go to the source. No middleman. The audiences have matured into knowing a good film is a good film, no matter where it was made or who it stars. But then again, we are not the billion dollar company with our money on the line!

Doing some imdb work today. Very confident The Raid will be seen at a theatre near all of us. Sony Pictures Classics resume:

Kung Fu Hustle

April 8, 2005 (limited) 7 theatres
April 22, 2005 (wide) 2500 theatres
Limited Opening Weekend:
$269,225

Sony Classics has had success in the past distributing films successfully.

One more point. If it was originally released in Indonesia in January 2012 with no Sony or worldwide distribution rights.

1. Indonesian release 3 months later (March / April)
2. Worldwide DVD beginning of summer.

Instead, we get to see the film in March in theatres, not on Region 3 DVD. Agreed, it will be a pain to wait for the DVD release.

Based Upon the US release schedule of DVDs nowadays, it seems to be 3-4 months after theatrical. So, hopefully it will be out on DVD between late June and late July! I remember Kung Fu Hustle hit NY/LA in early April 2005, wide release 2 weeks later (saw it in Ithaca NY) and DVD early August. Hopefully The Raid will be no longer of a wait!

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know the screening thurs night at cinelease blew the roof off the place!!. It was a great experience hearing the audience, cheer and cringe at the brutality of some fights.

Gareth was a very easy going and humble guy, I wish him the best and hope when/if he does a hollywood movie after Berandal the studios allow him to do his thing!!
