  1. For me number one must be Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. It's in my top 3 list of JWs best scores and absolutely deserves a complete expansion.
  2. Incredible news, Jurassic Park is an all time favorite and The Lost World a holy grail among the Williams scores without proper expansion!!! I will order it today or tomorrow, probably from LLL directly even if the shipping cost seems a bit expensive. But this is something i gladly pay to support LLL directly for this and all their other wonderful JW releases. Now fingers crossed for proper Potter expansions. What would i give for a complete PoA. Another holy grail removed from my wishlist of JW expanded scores Prisoner of Azkaban (Expanded) Starwars Prequels (Expanded) The Lost World (Expanded) War Horse (Expanded) The Patriot (Expanded) Far and Away (Expanded) Return of the Jedi (good sound quality / Expanded) Indiana Jones Quadrology (Expanded)
  3. The scene with Edmure and Jamie was probably the best Jamie scene since the season 3 bathtub moment. Tobias Menzies as Edmure was sorely missed since season 3 and he again delivered a great and nuanced performance as Edmure (now all the more hardened and grown up). Let's hope that Riverrun/Edmure still plays a role in the future seasons. The Blackfish sendoff was ok, it wasn't really necessary to see his end in battle... By the way how AMAZING were the Riverrun sets and CGI work. This is surely one of the best looking locations in the whole series. Even custom built siege equipment and the Lannister Frey camps. And many people keeps saying that the director of these episodes Mark Mylod is a sort of a hack because of the (admittedly horrible) Arya stabbing, recovery and chase scenes. Nevertheless apart from that he overall did a great job in my opinion, especially with all the Riverun stuff and everything concerning the hound in episode 7 and 8. These scenes were really really well done starting with this amazing montage with the reveal of the hound... Many of Mylods "bad" things are probably more script and story problems.
  4. I'm more lurking nowadays but still here and what can i say, season 7 sounds really promising. Season 6 was a great season in my opinion and really managed to close out or continue a lot of older story threads from previous seasons. Concerning older story threads i especially liked Edmure Tullys and the Blackfishs return (Riverrun sets and CGI was beautifully realized) as well as everything with the Hound.
  5. Spacecamp is a very good score which i really enjoy. It is in no way one of JW worst scores. The BFG samples sound great. I'm really looking forward to this surely magical score. I also love the colorful orchestration.
  6. I want to continue my search for the best John Williams tracks of each of his music types/styles (Action Music, Adventure Music, Downbeat/Sad Music, Romantic/Love Music,...). If someone would ask you for a John Williams playlist of his best Upbeat / Positive / Feel Good music, which tracks would you choose? My random order of John Williams best Upbeat / Feel Good music would be: 01) "Journey to the Island" (From Jurassic Park) 02) "Space Camp" (From Space Camp) 03) "To Charleston" (From The Patriot) 04) "Throne Room and Finale" (From Star Wars) 05) "Return to the Village / Raiders March" (From Temple of Doom) 06) "Rouge City" (From Artificial Intelligence) 07) "Jim's New Life" (From Empire of the Sun) 08) "The Flying Sequence" (From Hook) 09) "Short Round's Theme" (From Temple of Doom) 10) "Olympic Fanfare and Theme" (Comissioned for the Los Angeles ’84 Olympic Games) 11) "Follow Me" (From Always) 12) "Doctor, Lawyer, Lutheran" (From Catch Me If You Can) 13) "Main Title" (From Star Wars) 14) "Entry into the Great Hall" (From Harry Potter 1) 15) "Arrival in New York" (From Home Alone 2) 16) "The Open Sea" (From Jaws 2) 17) "Banning Back Home (Film Version)" (From Hook) 18) "Snowy's Theme" (From Tintin)
  7. The Force Awakens

    A good but disappointing score. I share the criticism some of you brought up. Rey's theme is great, very versatile and gets developed a lot across the soundtrack. I also like most of the old theme appearances ( Force theme, Luke, Han and Leia, Leia, Rebel fanfare and the Imperial March) and its orchestrations. The action music is problematic in its anonymity. Why is the recurring action motif / Finn's motif appearing almost always in the same orchestrations. The other problem is the lack of engaging themes apart from Rey and Poe's themes. I don't dig the March of the resistance. Kylo Ren's theme is solid but not developed enough. Finn's theme seems to be the above mentioned action motif. Then there is the anonymity of the First Order. Why isn't there a first order theme? A missed opportunity for a catchy and classic JW march. All in all sadly the weakest of the Starwars scores... my ranking 1) TESB 2) TPM 3) SW 4) RotS 5) RotJ 6) AOTC 7) TFA I really hope JW returns for Episode VIII and IX. Even though this score wasn't as good as expected it is better than everything else which was composed this year.
  8. Can i buy the lalaland releases (Home Alone, Braveheart) also from the intrada store (Jaws 1 and 2), cause i don't want to pay shipping to Europe twice?
  9. Congrats, all the best to you and your wife!
  10. ? Why do you think the June sessions were 3 days when there are all these reports and twitter posts posted around 5 days (monday to friday). Then there also is Ricards Main Page post about his source attending a session on June 25th (a date which he later removed out of unknown reasons) So in June alone we should have had at least 6 days of recording sessions!
  11.

  12. The Force Awakens

    Ricard post it on the main page and a few posts up in this thread, another report about an additional recording session on june 25 which is described as "beyond anything I have experienced musically in my life". It also means that there were already at minimum 6 session days, probably more ( first 5 days in june, june 25,...). There are probably around 12 minutes recorded on average per day which means most of the score is already in the can
  13. The Force Awakens

    Great news, thanks for the report Ricard! Don't let you wear down by posts like the last three here from Crumbs, Bespin and BB who had nothing better to reply than sarcastic non comments in response to big and fantastic news like this. It's such a bummer to nowadays have to read through all these bollock and totally unfunny non posts littered around every thread and making it difficult to discuss or even find serious quality discussions. Nevertheless there are still those who are positive and get gossebumps looking forward to this magical event of a new and seemingly fantastic JW Starwars score.
