  1. Nicholas Flamel being in the film is not a spoiler, it was in the first trailer!
  2. Those are two separate themes. The theme that you link above and call their love theme is their love theme. And it is reprised in Grindlewald in a choral version in the track below (0:12 - 1:12). The Queenie theme (that I quoted above from Spread the Word) is also heard on flute in the track from the original film that you quoted but starting at 9:37 (9:37 - 10:07). So there are two separate themes I think (Queenie/Jacob theme and Queenie theme) and both are reprised in Grindelwald. I think the main Grindlewald theme is heard here from 2:24 - 2:36. This theme was played whenever he appeared, kinda how Williams plays the Kylo Ren theme whenever he appears. I distinctly remember this theme being played when Grindlewald appears for the finale but I can't find it on the album I think. It should be between Leta's confession and Visions of War. Or maybe it was tracked in the film.
  3. After watching the movie can confirm this is the Queenie theme (from 2:46 to 3:46). It is arguably the biggest character moment in the film and is treated with a big statement. I think this them was last also used in the last film when she's wishing goodbye to Jacob but we didn't know it was going her theme then. The new film is making some theme associations more clear.
  4. This is true. She's trying to write novels and it doesn't work. Screenplays are a completely different medium. She needs a co-writer. Rowling owns this thing. You can't send her script back. She's a producer here. So her first draft gets filmed - no questions asked. I will take a scemamtic exception to this. The plot isn't dense. Infact the plot is very thin. The set-up and back story is dense. Plot is what happens. Actually - very very very little happens. I can summarize in one single sentence how the plot advanced over the last film. But the ridiculously convoluted backstories kill the film.
  5. No. It's not hard to follow. It's just pointless. There are all these subplots. But so what? The movie never makes you give a fuck.
  6. —- So Grindlewald - yeah this is a really bad movie. I slept. For real. There are so many characters and yet no story. Nothing happens except for the beginning and end. Nothing! It is just constant exposition and backstories that nobody gives a fuck about. If Dickens wrote a really bad fantasy novel, this would be it. Because it both very Dickensian and not very good.

  8. This might be true. The movie was a box office disaster and the critics hated it. So it has no constituency at all. It is going to get jack at the oscars. So why waste precious campaigning dollars. I think Williams might be disqualified due to this rule - "No more than one statuette will normally be given in the Original Score category. A second statuette may be awarded when two credited composers function as equal collaborators, each contributing fully to the original dramatic underscore for the film." Williams was NOT an equal collaborator and did NOT contribute to the score. Source: https://www.oscars.org/sites/oscars/files/91aa_rules.pdf
  9. It's a stretch to call them scores. They are more like sound effects soundscapes.

    Pixar announces Toy Story 4 coming 2017

    Lol that stuck out to you and not toys coming alive and having feelings. It is all about empathy. Within the established premise of the series it makes sense.

    Pixar announces Toy Story 4 coming 2017

    And it works. And gets me every time. It is almost unbearably poignant. The ending of Toy Story 3 makes me skeptical of the existence of this film. Why ruin something so perfect.
  12. It would totally not surprise me if these days editors while editing the movie go - this scene needs something epic and bust out a standard "epic trailer track" from youtube.
  13. I looking to see the movie so that the music can have more structure in my mind as I listen to it. I like what I hear so far but I do agree it’s a bit darker and not as bright and warm as the first one.
