  1. My copy arrived earlier this week, and it's been on a regular rotation. I don't know about anyone else, but I can't get enough of the later-to-be reprised material at onwards at 06:36 in Trapped in D Deck (the key sequence). Particularly the steadfast My Heart Will Go On brass allusion (07:40), sounding like a breath of air before plunging into a marvelously intense 3-against-2/4, rising/descending tug of war between horns in triads and trombones in fifths (that later becomes an almost literal representation of the Titanic's bow rising from the water) framed by an eight note pulse on Hawaiian puili sticks, punctuated in syncopated hits by a classic Horner gesture, hammered elbow clusters, anvils, and Bartok cello/bass pizzicati. I attracted some strange looks been head banging to this in my car at a set of traffic lights, but #YOLO.
  2. The Classical Music Recommendation Thread

    That's Yo-Yo Mah and Bobby McFerrin's arrangement. Love this guy.

  4. Should JWfan be a bit better behaved?

    Violence and technology... not good bedfellows!
  5. Should JWfan be a bit better behaved?

    I don't like JWfan. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.
  6. Screen names on JWFan: VOTE NOW!

    I'm having post-operative regrets. The hormones, the eyebrows, the wheelchair.
  7. That's the great thing about Catholicism. It's so vague, nobody knows what it's all about.

  8. If nothing else, it's a nice respite from the teal and orange hegomony.
  9. CineFix Top 10 Sci-Fi Films

    In what world is The Prestige science-fiction?
  10. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Right film, wrong sister.
  11. Best Indiana Jones CDs to get?

    Fixed that for ya.
  12. Film Confessions

    Inside Out's bland, treacly visuals made me want to gauge my eyes out, although I liked the premise.
  13. Disco Stu's Top 21 Movies of ALL TIME

    I hate that kind of person... but I like you.
  14. Film Confessions

    I think mine would be Welles's Chimes at Midnight.
  15. Film Confessions

    Not among film school cognoscenti. I think it partially stems from pure resentment on their part--it's one of the few of De Palma's films that managed to percolate into popular culture at any significant level, where a lot of his better films haven't, for whatever reason. Regardless, I enjoy it as a porn horror opera. The venal excesses of the Hollywood movie brats and the failed hopes of the Baby Boomer left projected into a hall of mirrors. A flawed but audacious work, and for that I prefer it to the mediocrity of something like Redacted. I guess that's my first film confession. I like Scarface.
