    I'll amend and re-upload with the prequel ones. Jedi with less colour saturation and the prequels.

    It was blue until relatively late in post production (even in the trailers I think) and I heard somewhere the change to green was made so it would show up better against the sky in the Sarlacc fight scene. TPM and AotC price also fell on Amazon UK. By the time they come out, they'll all be 4 Pounds!

    It’s all well and good discussing the library of movies John Williams has scored over the years - but what about the films he hasn’t? Which films do you think would have been improved if JW had scored them? My opinion on this matter is that the rest of the “Potter” films would’ve been much improved with a score by Williams. what do you guys think?

    It just feels generic to me, Trajan at least has some character. A single LP from 1983 with much information crammed onto it is different from a special remastered CD rerelease. Thank Eru for Amazon preorder keeping the lowest price then!

    Photoshop Which font do you think would work better? i'll try it out. Yes, Darth Vader was spoiling the aesthetic, he's a big feature on 3, 4 and 5, I didn't think anyone would miss him. Return of the Jedi was the most difficult to adapt due to the posters available.

    I'm kinda surprised there has not been a discussion topic about Ludwig Goransson's score to Black Panther. For those who have seen the latest chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, what was your impression of the score? I feel not only is Black Panther another fantastic entry in Marvel Studios' repertoire; it is a little more than that. Black Panther is a history-making film in the way it presents itself, from the characters, cultural influence and iconography, to the story. I was amazed, not just as a fan of Marvel Studios, having seen all the films since the beginning with Iron Man, but as a film enthusiast in general. The score adds to this as well. Ludwig Goransson's use of African instrumentation and chorus combined with traditional western orchestra makes it stand out. I was also fond of his use of techno beat and rhythm in combination with brass, string and choir for the character of Killmonger. T'Challa's theme is the definitive highlight of the score. I was amazed at how much research Goransson put into crafting the score, even going to South Africa to look into the music. One of my favorite tracks is "Wakanda." That vocal solo by Baaba Maal gives me chills. The images that accompany the track in the film are phenomenal. Ryan Coogler and all involved really made a great film. Anyway, those are just some of my reactions to Black Panther.

    My vote is Ready Player One. I really wish JW could have done it. I saw the film twice and both times tried to get into AS’s score, but it wasn’t happening.

    Donner's Ladyhawke is absolutely crying out in every scene for Williams, or maybe Horner and Goldsmith. I think it is a movie that was good enough to become iconic if it had an iconic score.

    SUPERMAN II HP 4 - 8 THE COLOR PURPLE READY PLAYER ONE QUINTET LOST IN SPACE That proposed Peter Pan musical, with Michael Jackson (...or, maybe not...) A JW-scored POLTERGEIST would have been interesting, but I'm more than happy with what we have. Ditto, HEAVEN AND EARTH.

    Brilliant, @Holko! A few weeks ago, I was in my local major-chain music store. A man was standing at a till, waiting to pay for his purchases, failing to see a sign, not six inches from his face, saying THIS TILL IS CLOSED, PLEASE PAY UPSTAIRS

    Wondering what the chances are of seeing A Quiet Place with an audience who actually get that BEING quiet is necessary to appreciate it properly, as opposed to 'One ticket for A Quiet Place and the largest-sized bucket/tray/bag of popcorn/nachos/individually-wrapped sweets that you've got, thanks'.

    I agree that Jedi looks better with less saturation. Both on its own, but also as a whole with the other two. Good work!

    Disney's Robin Hood by George Bruns Hey, this is actually pretty fun! The movie's a minor guilty pleasure of mine (one of the only fun ones from Disney's dark age at least), so I wasn't expecting anything great from the score on its own.

    Star Trek: Discovery Soundtrack

    That would require rewatching the episodes. Are the episodes rewatchable? They seem to rely on “shock” value (though you can see all the “surprises” coming after the first few episodes).

    He changed his username to Batman's Diet Coke for some reason. I do like 90s ads, so I suppose I'm cool with it. As for @Bespin, I hope he does not leave permanently. A fellow who is passionate about Bach, Williams and Roy Orbison is to be appreciated.

    What’s so mysogynistic here, I have no idea. It always helps when you, the individual watching the film, can relate to the characters further through something you share: whether it means having characters of different age groups so you can find the one that you share your age with; different genders and yes, different ethnicities. Female characters can also help men watching the film, certainly. It gives the film a sense of variety. Since it is a feminine trait by nature, women in films tend to serve as the emotional core and/or the conscious of the film. That’s not sexist on the part of the filmmakers. But, if you were to point out in the current social climate that women in film also serve as eye-candy for men (which they absolutely are), that too would be hastly classified as misogynistic and sexist, so....

    It might not be as memorable as some other score but it's very lovingly put together. Bit more refined. Karol

    Alan Silvestri's READY PLAYER ONE (2018)

    My God, the ending of "There's Something I Need to Do" is absolutely magnificent. You just don't hear that classic, big romantic sound very often these days. Those rich harmonies... Also love the Christmas-y bit earlier in the cue -- the bells-with-emotional-solo-woodwinds thing is of course far from original in film music, but it always gets me. I assume the RPO bit must be for when the snow starts falling and a certain two characters kiss. I think this film will stick with me for a long time, and a large part of that is because of just how well the film merges with the score in certain key moments. I can't even really say I regret JW not doing this. Silvestri did very well.

    Well, as long as I can still get my news magazines at the checkout aisles, I'm fine. In fact I just got my newest one last night! Did you guys know Bill Clinton deliberately sabotaged his wife's campaign by arranging coke parties with aliens and Angelina Jolie?
