  1. The Photography Thread

    I need a light box.
  2. John Williams' The BFG (2016)

    I have a really bad memory for names. I'd have to print out the name change thread and check it every time I see a previously unknown name. I've honestly lost track of who half the regulars are.
  3. John Williams' The BFG (2016)

    I've always considered them two separate things.
  4. John Williams' The BFG (2016)

    STTMP doesn't.
  5. ...on the other hand (I forgot to mention this above), there are several Williams scores that started out as relatively unremarkable for me, but have become scores that I revisit more frequently than others, without necessarily having the same "highlight factor" as those. Amistad has long been one of these scores, and it seems The River has recently become another one.
  6. "Acquired taste" is a very underrated concept, I think. Perhaps because it's not mainstream fashionable to repeatedly listen to something that doesn't at first seem as good as other stuff you could listen to. It happens with all kinds of music - I started out (in the mid 90s, mind you) seriously not liking Goldsmith, and now he's one of my top favourite composers. More recently, the latest Muse album only made a lukewarm impression on me at first, but has grown immensely in my ranking. With Williams, my impressions don't usually change radically anymore, because I've known so much of his music for so long and he's mostly a very consistent composer in his manner and quality of writing. There still are cases where a score at first only seems "quite alright" when it is in fact much more than that. Cases in point: The Adventures of Tintin, which at just rushed when I saw the film, and then at first didn't seem to be much more on CD, yet stuck in my playlist for over a week and has become one of my favourites of Williams' 2000s output, and most recently TFA, which after seeing the film just seemed "good" and now ranks up there with the best SW scores for me.
  7. How Many of You Can Read Music?

  8. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Ah yes, chromaticism...
  9. I'd hope so, considering the boot (at least the one I have) fits on a single CD. I'm too lazy to add up the track times above though. I guess we would like to know more.
  10. The Official Pop and Rock Music thread

    Give it a try. It takes a few listens, but it's worth it (at least for me, and some friends have had a similar experience).
  11. The Official Pop and Rock Music thread

    Yes, that's when I saw them first. But the staging of that tour was nothing compared to their current setup with (balloon) drones flying across the hall and semitransparent projection screens with live effects in various configurations. Apparently it looks even better from the seating area: It also helps that after originally finding the new album inconspicuous and revising that to quite good after a few listens, a break of a couple of months has vastly improved it and I now classify it as really good. They played a lot from Black Holes and Revelations in particular, too - 6 songs I believe.
  12. You can now change your own screen name

    Ha! Joeinar had been Joeinar for years before becoming Joey.
