July 5 update:
The recent passing of Roger Moore has revitalized my interest in finishing this project. Good news: its nearly done. Ive aquired Adobe Premiere Pro, so the editing process has taken a major step forward. Thankfully, the 5.1 mix isolates the Bill Conti score to the left, right, and surround channels, so removing it while keeping dialoge and sound effects intact has proven much easier than anticipated.
Final touches are happening now.I hope to be sharing this cut on the spleen in the coming weeks.
