  1. Crikey....I don't follow all these STAR WARS threads, and was -- at first -- shocked to read the headline that he had ONLY written 25 minutes of score up to this point. And then I saw the thread was from May. Stop scaring me, crumbs!
  2. The dry, but necessary response: That would depend entirely on context, wouldn't it?
  3. Yes, I had the same issue for a number of years. I have a major issue with live action animals being antropomorphized (which is why I can't stand stuff like HIS DARK MATERIALS, for example), even though I quite enjoyed stuff like LASSIE or SKIPPY or FLIPPER as a kid. But it's George friggin' Miller, so I eventually succumbed, and had to agree with the critics. His oft-mentioned 'dark' approach; the entire mise-en-scene, really, is absolutely brilliant. Should be watched for that alone.
  4. He, he. Yes, I guess. But fortunately, he has some other gems in his discography, like THE BLACK STALLION or APOCALYPSE NOW (in-context, not on album). But back to the 'real' Cage here, i.e. John. I must admit that I've never heard much of his work. I usually encounter his name when people pull out that "4:33" silent piece as a joke in various circumstances. Any recommendations here?

    Well, it made me awkward as a kid too. But then I guess I was a weird kid.
  6. From what I know, this has a more symphonic slant; it's not the straight-out rock concert of the previous tour. That would also allow for a slightly different setlist. I still dream of a Zimmer concert concept with a primarily electronic angle. And something like "The Waters of Irrawaddy" from BEYOND RANGOON played live. God, I'd die and go to heaven.

    This kind of fawning fan stuff stuff always makes me incredibly awkward, both for the celebrity and the fan.
  8. The above was not really my review. Just a tiny tidbit for a list. Here is my "proper" review (in Norwegian, though). I address some of the issues there: https://montages.no/2012/05/ren-blockbuster-kunst-i-prometheus/
  9. I don't have tickets yet; I'll see if I can manage. The concert is sold out.
  10. No, not quite. But it's certainly among the top 10-20 of the decade we're about to leave. It was my favourite of 2012.
  11. I don't understand your post, really. When you do a list with the words 'greatest' or 'best', it will always have a more objective air than 'favourite' -- I say 'objective air' because lists will always have a degree of subjectivity involved, of course. In other words, my (or Gustavo Dudamel's) list of favourites would look considerably different than if I were challenged to make a list of 'best' or 'greatest' or 'most influential' or whatever.
  12. Well, everyone is allowed to have an opinion. Williams would tower at the very top of my own list too, but not necessarily on top of a 'greatest' list, which has more of an 'objective' air to it.
  13. Nah, forget that. But rather THE KINGDOM, MILK, STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE, TAKING WOODSTOCK, RESTLESS, PROMISED LAND, THE UNKNOWN KNOWN, THE CIRCLE....that kind of stuff.
