  1. Like Chen G. said, it's just a part of her theme. But you're exactly right that the harmony is different in this statement, which lends it that slightly more hopeful sound.
  2. How did you feel about The Last Jedi?

    I voted the middle option. I like the film, but its flaws are disappointing. The first couple shots of Yoda...Luke flicking dust off his shoulder...some (not all) of the porg/caretaker humor...I really had very high hopes for this film, and it turned out to be more of a mixed bag.
  3. What's your dream title of a book on JW?

    Boom-Tzzz: The John Williams Story
  4. What Darth Vader really said to Luke

    None of the above. The line would have started with "No...", not "Luke..."
  5. Cats vs. Dogs

    Dogs all the way. Can't vote because I currently own neither.
  6. I can't vote on this one because I have three favorites, all for different reasons. The credits for Star Wars are perfect for the heroic, idealistic tone of that first film - not to mention they've got my favorite pre-credits cue transition. The credits for Empire are chillingly good, especially in the way it transitions between the score's three major new themes. And then TFA is actually quite fantastic as well, doing an equally great job at representing all the film's major thematic material in a way that feels organic. What the hell, I'll vote for Empire. It's still a tie for me, though.
  7. I know what you mean, but for some reason, I don't mind. I find the transition exciting. (Not that I EVER say no to isolated cues!)
  8. I think I'm falling in love with "Canto Bight." It's the "Cantina Band #3" I never knew I needed in my life.
  9. Me after seeing the film for the first time: "That movie wasn't particularly excellent, and the music didn't help." Me after listening to the OST for the first time: "This is an excellent score. Now I want to see the film again..."
  10. Well explained. Still sucks that I was starting to really enjoy watching the character.
  11. I ordered the OST today, having seen the film a couple nights ago. I suspect that this will be my least favorite of the Williams Star Wars scores thus far, but my feelings could change. In the movie, my main observations were that Rose's theme is nice (if suspiciously similar to the Force theme), there seemed to be some solid action scoring, and the integration of the existing themes felt clumsy and somehow very, very sequel-like. Very curious to listen to this on its own once the CD arrives.
  12. Oh yeah, "Advanced Scout Greeting" is fantastic. I love it when the low notes kick in.
  13. If anything leaks, I won't listen. I'll wait till first viewing.
  14. Yeah, "2 1/2 Miles Down" is fantastic. That and the alternate "Southampton" are my favorite new bits from this release.
  15. Favorite Lincoln Melody [POLL]

    Toss-up for me between The People's House and The American Process. I'll vote for the latter because that was the one that stuck out to me the first time I saw the film, although I'd say I love them about equally now.
