This just makes me anticipate the movie so much more (and who knew that was even possible???), but I’m always really interested and attentive when it comes to movie-music, and there’s nothing better than a bad ass soundtrack πŸ˜€
Congratulations Mr. Holmes – *crosses fingers… arms…. legs…. and toes*

I want to see Cherrybomb now!

January 8th, 2009 at 8:16 PM

How cool!! Congrats to him πŸ˜€

January 8th, 2009 at 8:43 PM

WOOP! WOOP! This is a sign guys! lol

January 8th, 2009 at 9:06 PM

You guys think the actual movie has the chance to get any nominations for next year’s Irish Film and Television Awards? I’m guessing it didn’t get any acting or technical nominations just because it hasn’t been released yet and the soundtrack itself is like a completely different thing…. so I hope next year the movie itself gets many more nominations!!! *crosses fingers*

January 8th, 2009 at 11:13 PM

Jazzy!!!! How are you? Where’s Soph, you two haven’t been around in a while, do we have another issue of Wicked! coming? πŸ˜‰

Wow, nominations already?! This is VERY promising, I mean who in their right mind wouldn’t want to distribute a movie that’s already gotten a nomination and has only been seen by only a handful of people? Hopefully that means we won’t have to wait to terribly long for it come sailing across the four corners of the world for everyone to see it.

*is haunted by AJ’s comment about the talk of DL being two years between filming and actually seeing it*

Oh and guys, check out Mr. Holmes’, for sure. You’ll get turned on to some interesting music. I simply cannot wait for the soundtrack, it’s going to be one of those movies where you’re pummeled to happy pieces with the actual movie AND the soundtrack. That’s kind of a hard thing to do, IMO.

*is done rambling and taking up space*

January 8th, 2009 at 11:39 PM

That’s excellent news! I can’t wait to hear the soundtrack!

January 9th, 2009 at 2:11 AM

Sweet! I hope the soundtrack is released soon. I can’t wait to hear it.

January 9th, 2009 at 9:01 AM

I want the soundtrack, and I want the trailer!

I’ll be gone till Sunday, though… :(

Have a nice weekend, everyone!
