  1. TLJ is more entertaining but "Dear Basketball" is probably the most satisfyingly cohesive piece of music he wrote in 2017. And maybe the best new melody of the three projects.
  2. How many people here consider themselves JW completists?

    Not remotely a completist as a collector but I am interested in eventually listening to all his scores and seeing the films.
  3. Williams confirms EPISODE IX !!

    Force Awakens - 11/6/14 (December 2015 release) Rogue One - 3/12/15 (December 2016 release) Last Jedi - 1/23/17 (December 2017 release) Solo - 10/17/17 (May 2018 release) No strict pattern but probably not til next year
  4. Favorite short musical moments in Williams scores?

    1:05-1:13 This is one of those odd little things that made an impression on me as a kid. The moment it scores in the film is fairly innocuous (Ron encouraging Harry to get on the broom and catch the key) and yet he gives it this weird, distressed color. Wonder what he's playing off of there, exactly. Maybe Harry's doubt or Ron's impatience, or just the aesthetic of the kids in closeup in the dark. I like the uneasy effect, though. Small example of him bringing out the gently spooky nature of those stories and not necessarily playing the obvious dramatic note.
  5. What will the title of SW Ep. IX be?

    I could see them using "spark" in IX's title, since it did become such a recurring idea in TLJ.
  6. What Darth Vader really said to Luke

    When we die our bodies become the grass. And the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great circle of life.
  7. He'll play it on this and Powell will take it from there
  8. Do you like Subway?

    Never forget
  9. "One-off" melodies, tunes, and ditties

    A couple I love from POA: And my new favorite jam:
  10. It's hilarious how many news stories have come out with these Star Wars movies that originated as horseshit fan speculation/wishful thinking. "I don't like Desplat, I want Michael Giacchino instead" "Dream on" "Trevorrow sucks, maybe they'll fire him" "No chance" "John Williams should write a theme for another composer to use" "Lol please"
  11. I want to hear him play through his sketches for those things! And the original theme arrangements. Happily staying away from that shit. In general I think I've kinda had my fill of other people's opinions on new Star Wars music and old man Williams after TFA. And I don't feel like this score has added much to that discussion, anyway, positive or negative.
  12. THE POST - SCORE Thread

    It sorta reminds me of this:
  13. Is that who I think it is?

    Beautiful likeness.
