    NONE BUT THE BRAVE is coming from Warner Archive: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p=16418496&postcount=11004
  3. The thing is this: Looking forward to the Bluray of E.T., i just watched a couple of scenes (the beginning, and the flying sequences). And although i've seen the film more than a dozen times, I cried again (now in my 32) and got goosebumps. This would be another thread but I was wondering if my view that those movies have a higher lever of craftmanship is subjective, or is it objective (because I saw them when i was a kid and they marked my childhood etc.)? I mean, kids of today would feel /are feeling the same watching Avatar or Super 8? anyway, back to my topic, which films (which don't have to be dramatic) have a great emotional impact on you or even make you cry? for me the 2 top in my head are E.T. and Disney's Beauty and the Beast. but I could equally get emotional by Indiana Jones and the temple of doom (which i consider the best adventure film ever made), Superman or even Spacecamp! ( a movie that i also watched dozens of time in VHS when i was a kid). well, now that I think about it, 50% of my emotions is that these films are part of my childhood. (I'm sure lots of people would deny the craftmanship of Spacecamp! hehe) So, feel free to answer the question in bold.
  4. Can anyone provide timestamps for the Van Helsing motif that I just read in the liner notes, which is in "Grave trampling and the asylum", "into the crypt" and "van helsing's solution"? (I just got my cd )

  7. ah, thanks. Yes, i meant that instance in Jedi Steps and Finale.
  8. I just noticed that if you take the first 2 phrases of Rey's theme and put them under the first 2 phrases of the force theme to sound simultaneously they perfectly fit. I don't remember, is there any instance in TFA or TLJ of such contrapuntal statements where the 2 themes sound simultaneously?
  9. If it's an expansion I'd love a Nixon expansion, or else I would LOVE a Johnny Williams unreleased score!

    I'm not sure about this film as I don't know it so well, but I usually prefer the theatrical cut, as there's a reason for cutting some scenes in the first place.

    The Paper Chase from TT is cancelled! It's coming from another label, but we don't know which. (so, no iso score option unfortunately) https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=314694 In other news, Nixon theatrical cut is released for the first time on Bluray by Kino, on May 21st, in a 3 disc set that will contain both cuts https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/posts/4704561/
  12. Apart from the new sound, this doesn't include anything that isn't in the blue box, right?

    Twilight Time announced The paper chase (1973) for April, with probably an isolated score included. https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/htf-exclusive-twilight-time-april-2019-release-announcements.360807/
  15. Well, it's not an actual book, that will be published that is, but it's my PhD dissertation on Williams' style, which is strictly musicological. I had planned it as a 4 chapter (beyond the introductory chapter) dissertation, but it seems it will be 3 in the end. (I've almost abandoned the idea of a melody chapter because it wasn't turning out as I'd like it to be) I have written more than 1,5 chapters till now (around 150 pages) and at this rate I hope to have finished it by the end of the year, because I have already been very very late. it will be unfortunately in Greek. When I finish it and it is accepted, i was planning to upload it here, just for looking at the numerous musical examples and diagrams, so that someone could get an idea of it.
  16. I just found this, and this is the only source in the internet: http://books.google.gr/books?id=fiA0zbl1LcoC&pg=PA2&lpg=PA2&dq=%22A+Musical+Biography+of+John+Williams%22+%22tom+barton%22&source=bl&ots=Yp_tZIHk7x&sig=aIrA6fqEOiyPr-r3oOkul5Foxrg&hl=el&sa=X&ei=vuliUf3hBJDv0gXHroDQBw&ved=0CCwQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=%22A%20Musical%20Biography%20of%20John%20Williams%22%20%22tom%20barton%22&f=false it seems it's like an ebook with links to sites and stuff about further information. I saw in some pages which has links to "complete score analysis", "complete cue list" etc., and i have a hunch that it links to here in jwfan. i wonder where someone can find the complete one.. It's fresh! (date of publication: March 2013)

    John Williams' influences

  19. Dear members, I've not logged in for quite some time due to some problems, but I thought to post this here now. This is an upcoming book on film music (in English and due to publication in December according to amazon) with chapters on various film composers including one on John Williams: http://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9781137573742#aboutBook The chapter is co-written by Emilio Audissino, who I'm sure you know from his excellent book on John Williams (and is a member here too), and myself. Emilio's part copes with the historical side and importance of Williams' film music. My contribution to the chapter is strictly musicological. I'm examining the musical syntax of Williams' themes based on Caplin’s academically acclaimed study of classical theme-types, along with more contemporary theorists’ views of some sentential types. Six notated musical examples are included representing five different types that are most prevalent on Williams' thematic output, and also a statistical table with the percentages of these types in my analysis of 341 themes. This part of the chapter is really an abridgement of a much longer chapter from my upcoming musicological dissertation on John Williams. I would like to thank Emilio very much, since he was the one that thought of me and suggested to the editors that we should co-write the chapter. This represents my first academic publication so it was really important for me and I'm very happy about it!
  20. I assume someone would say "only at jwfan". But I am regularly wondering seriously about this: I have noticed that great composers of the past have had a great "pain" or "problem". Others were gay, others deaf, others had a serious health or mental or alcohol problem etc. Williams IS a great composer, yet he seems to be so balanced and calm, and besides his first wife's death, there hasn't been any indication of anything else that causes him pain. Do you think he could be the first great composer without a serious problem?
  21. Source: https://www.facebook.com/thedigitalbitscom if ONLY that was true, this would be the release of the decade for me!!!!!!

  23. I've been living in another city for a while now and haven't been following the discussion on the Harry Potter release. So, the sessions for the first 2 films have become obsolete with this release? everything is there?
