    It was by no means meant to be condescending. I was just interested, cause you seem like a very rationally thinking person. So, if you like most Lynch movies, try to watch movies like 2001 and Interstellar like these are Lynch movies. I don't need an explanation for these two. It's all about the experience and a slight notion of reflection is often enough. How about November as annual non-movies-you-mentioned-discussion-month? But what the heck does the bolt thing mean?!

    The Doctor's pacifism is kinda in and out.

    I have the Blu. Must admit that i'm not into contemplative movies at all though.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    I know this rather silly rationalization. Since the exact results never were taken to task by a academic institution we have only Horner's word how sound that is. Here's my selection, btw:

    Hey this conversation started with Tarkovsky. I tried, man! Karol

    I think he saw himself as a painter and his scores as thematic cycles...like Rembrandt or whatever. His doctorate went into his head! Karol

    You're right, it's not out before 2020. 😪

    Same swing pieces...man, if Horner were just a bit less lazy this stuff would be much higher regarded. The swing numbers: most people don't have affection for them but they are perfectly arranged beauties. For 'Cocoon 2', the swing pieces are actually the only cues you *should* keep.

    I agree. What jerking around, Chen? Some viewers are compelled to interpret the images (metaphors) while others are not. Both are fine, I can perfectly enjoy 2001: ASO for its visual language alone. That's the beauty of visual driven movies, they don't rely on story and dialogue, and allow for the viewer to add their own thoughts. Veto!

    OK. Marvel and DC then. Karol

    I like the set too. It's no Cocoon...but it is better than Cocoon: The Return. Karol

    Could we put a ban on discussing certain movies (Star Trek, Star Wars, 2001, Nolan, Bond) for a month? Heck, i would even supply a review for Top Gun:2019 as a bargain...

    Yeah it's not really that similar.

    That's only his 'bumbling comic theme' he used a few times, it's pure coincidence in that more tranquil reading. I quite like the additional cues (Aerial Ballet, Flying Lession' Babies buzz NY), it's rare enough these days that additional material turns up substantial pieces that are better than the OST material (most of 90's Goldsmith excepted).
  20. I'm sure you are largely overestimating the amount of music that gets discarded. There is literally no time to physically write down 20 hours of music for full orchestra (even in condensed form, as Williams does) in the few weeks that are usually given to him to compose a film score. I'm talking just about the mechanical labour of writing down the notes, without even including the concept of writing "good music". I think @Loert 's order-of-magnitude estimate is probably realistic, although, if I had to bet, I would stay a bit lower (that is, I believe he wrote less than an average of 1 minute of music per day for all of his career). This is a few-notes and few-seconds example, which does not alter the general statement. It would alter the estimate of the total duration by just a few minutes, and it's absolutely impossible that such a procedure was applied to all of his more elaborate themes. You should not expect that he wrote hundreds (or even tens) of different versions of, say, the Force theme. First, he did not have so much time, and second, he is not that uncertain about what he writes, otherwise he would have written much less, believe me. Moreover, I think we should count only the finalized stuff, not the sketches that were discarded and thrown in the dustbin.

  22. Looks like the Blu-ray will feature a score featurette (Foot Chase Musical Breakdown), a composer's commentary AND isolated score track. Speak about rubbing it in. Karol
