Wait a minute, why are you reviewing the score you reviewed last year you might ask. Well, turns out, this is a new expanded 2CD version called The Rogue Cut released by Sony. So what is The Rogue Cut? Well it’s a new version with 10 additional minutes of film. Well, the 10 additional minutes of film apparently warranted a new expanded score and that to me is a complete and utterly positive surprise. Usually we’ll have to wait years before some expanded version might arrive, but someone thought differently and that person is now my hero. More of this please! It so happens I quite liked the original score which was quite lengthy in itself at 69 minutes. The Rogue Cut expands on that by 42 minutes, which is no small feat. So what is different? Well, some cues are split up. For example, ‘The Future – Main Titles’ from the original score is now split in two so you can hear both cues separately. I love it! There are some brand new cues like ‘Xavier’s Plan’, ‘Trask Hearing / A New Era’, ‘Clothes Off / Goodbye Peter’ and a bunch of others. So this is exciting! Let’s see what The Rogue Cut has in store for us.
