    TheUlyssesian got a reaction from The Illustrious Jerry in Justin Hurwitz's FIRST MAN (2018)   
    Having listened to The Landing a few more times - yeah it is walking away with the best score Oscar. Take that to the bank.
     
    It is quite impactful even without the visuals.

    I listened to that family theme and it is more a ostinato than a theme. It is just too repetitive. But The Landing track was indeed impressive.

    Both lovely  cues. This  is very  good  music. This could be the score of the year!

    The full piece. This score is going to be stunning.
     
    JNH really knows how to write big colourful music and make an Orchestra sound so rich and fun.

    Interesting trailer. Too bad they didn't use JNH's main theme and stuck to Williams' theme for the trailer.
     
    This looks like a much more ambitious movie visually.
     
    I think this series might age well. The first movie was really good. Easily one of the best wizarding world movies.

    And the best of all from this masterpiece of a score by Victor Young - based on an Irish classic. This cue is a personal favorite and scores the single greatest sequence John Ford ever directed.

    I find your post confusing. Can you list the 22 he picked followed by the 25 that you picked? I am not able to follow who picked what.

    TheUlyssesian reacted to Richard in The Official Miklos Rozsa Thread   
    From what I've read, Rozsa said that he didn't do "space opera", and they couldn't afford Goldsmith.
     
     
     
     
    Yes. They offered him GENERATIONS, and he said "you need a better composer, than me", to which Rick Berman replied "I know, but they've all seen the rough cut".

    TheUlyssesian got a reaction from Richard in Schindler's List returning to theaters for 25th anniversary   
    That is a major shortcoming. It basically treats the Jews as victims and as a monolith. They are extras in a movie about their historical cultural sociological and life experience. It is a bracing film, but still a little bit Hollywood. It needed more sobriety. 
     
    I don't want it to seem like I am dunking on it too much though. I do like it. I think it is a noble and courageous attempt. And it is definitely very well made. But it is not Spielberg's masterpiece or even close to his best film. Its reputation is definitely inflated due to its subject matter.

    Have they colorized it or converted it to 3D?  If not why see it again.

    You know what though? If this is true, I'm glad Boyle's gone:
     
     
    The last thing a Bond film needs is woke preachiness. The last thing the Bond franchise needs is an auteur director who decides his own pet vision, and desire to "subvert the expectations" of the audience is more important than delivering a good movie.

    TheUlyssesian reacted to Steve McQueen in NEW Concert work: "Highwood’s Ghost", a fantasia for cello, harp and orchestra for cellist Yo-Yo Ma and harpist Jessica Zhou (Premieres August 19th at Tanglewood)   
    One of his best concert works, no doubt.  Utterly excellent.  The music takes the listener on such a varied journey, many surprises.  Great virtuosity writing and dynamic range.
    And lovely lyrical writing as well. 
    Structure was strong and John used the orchestra to great effect, integrating things better than in many of his other concerti.
    Well, hopefully @Bespin has a fuller one.
     
    I thought about making a recording, but didn't set things up on time.
