  1. because they are just as likely to have scored another movie that sucks in its stead.
  2. Given the overall critical and commercial success of RO (well, aside from people like me who hated it), I think Kennedy's choice will be to go the safe route, which is Gia. She calls the shots for such things more than the director.
  3. or he could reunite with another famed composer with whom he has worked.
  4. Water is a molecule made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. It cannot be of its nature poisonous to human beings (unless a given person has lots of problems).
  5. is the rumor true that JW accepted the challenge from these parts and wrote an all-synth score and performed it himself on an 80's Casio keyboard like this guy:
  6. why the unnecessary dichotomy?
  7. translation: "oh, I resent the fact that I am alive and want others to experience a share of my misery."
  8. Nice to see Williams music again making its way into the Vienna Philharmonic lineup.
  9. I hear in the first draft, Lincoln lives and retires to a country estate.
  10. Context, context, context. we are talking about RPO, so if there were a desire to have a synth-heavy score it would be so to "mimic" that sound of the 80s, not the current Zimmer trend. If Williams could do it in the 80s, he can do it in his 80s. All that being said, my guess is Spielberg will want a score of a 80s "Williams sound," which will not heavily, if at all, feature synths.
  11. I am not sure you know how logic works. You claimed no one would ever ask Williams to write a synth score. All it takes is one counterexample to prove your claim wrong.
  12. For a "very forgettable movie," you seem to complain about it a lot.
