    On The Tank (The Last Crusade)

    Yes! Exactly that.

    On The Tank (The Last Crusade)

    Last time I watched it, I couldn't help having a massive grin on my face all the way through. It's quite nuts, but also a lot of fun. Underrated, I'd say! Also, "On the Tank" is pretty great.

    Harry Potter 7CD Collection - MUSIC discussion

    I wouldn't. I wonder how many people would. Perhaps it's just a vocal minority? Personally, I don't quite comprehend why music fans would be opposed to changes that improve the listening experience. Wow, that's cool! Didn't even know that existed. What (re-)recordings exist of the Children's Suite? I'd be quite interested in a set of as-alternate-as-possible versions.

    The Big Bang Theory

    LOL, yep, pretty much! Though I never was as much into GoT as the rest of the world seemed to be. I prefer characters who support each other, rather than suffering from chronic backstabbing disorder. And oh crap, that can STILL apply to both BBT and GoT!!

    The Big Bang Theory

    I do. It's not as good as it was, but there are still laughs to be had. Not convinced they're finishing it up the way I would've preferred. But I got this far... Might as well finish it.

  7. Is there a Last Jedi spreadsheet somewhere by any chance?

    Truth be told, in my profile picture I was just posing. It was taken by an old colleague of mine on USS Constitution a few years back. We decided to pay her a visit when the cruise ship we worked on was in Boston. I haven't sailed on a large sailing ship yet, but I very much want to one day. The attached picture with Antarctica in the background is actually more real. Even though, for some reason, it looks more fake. But if it were fake, I wouldn't have looked so cold! Figure that one out... I like Indiana Jones. And John Williams. It doesn't fit with Game of Thrones though. Do you think the creative team is already getting into Star Wars mode? These shenanigans might work better there...

    Thank you for that! When that happened, I honestly thought it would be a dream sequence before the real events were to unfold. The level of "stupid" in their battle strategies is really distracting. Of course movies never do seem to understand how visibility works at sea. Having worked at sea myself, I find this especially annoying. You can easily see 10-20 miles in those circumstances. Were they really not paying ANY attention at all?!? And why were those arrows stronger than your average cannonball volley? Talk about overpowered!!
  10. Fully agreed. It might be true, but if it is, then I don't want to know about it. Plus... Giacchino's name is still attached to Galaxy's Edge, along with Williams' own, right? Seems unlikely that would be the case if there really was something terrible going on between the two. My assumption is that Giacchino simply couldn't resist the temptation to write new stuff. Or he's had those alternate evil themes floating around his head for many years and he finally had an excuse to put them to use. In other words, there might be plausible scenario's where the addition of those two technically unnecessary themes weren't really to the detriment of his time and effort spent elsewhere. Plus... I still quite like 'em. They're fun. And as character themes for Krennic and Tarkin, their existence kind-of makes sense to me.

    STAR WARS general thread

    Just watched the LEGO Star Wars "All-Stars" series. It's loyalty to John Williams' themes is really incredible! Not just the main themes (Luke/Force/Leia) make appearances, but also the less well-known ones. Plenty of Adventures of Han, the Fathiers Charge and even the Resistance Desperation theme from Last Jedi. This in addition to new themes for the characters of the story. Seems Disney is taking its music pretty seriously.

    STAR WARS Custom Covers thread

    Did anyone ever make a series of matching covers based on the Struzan (and similar) posters for the entire series (including Rogue One and Solo)? How about matching covers for the other Star Wars content, such as games and Shadows of the Empire and such? Where did THAT artwork come from? It's cool! Wow, hadn't seen that one before! Good one.

    Clone Army Theme from Star Wars: Episode II?

    For some reason, I almost started to forget how good this was. But then when hearing it again, I'm reminded that it's really worth listening to. Probably some of the best music from AotC. Shame it didn't get used properly in that film. It probably would've worked wonders somewhere in there. It's a bit like "The Hunt" from The Lost World in that respect. Both brilliant pieces of music that went unused for reasons beyond my comprehension.

    Best of these Recent Star Wars pieces

    1. Galaxy's Edge / The Adventures of Han / March of the Resistance Honestly, I've got no clue how to choose between these three. They're all such tremendous fun! March of the Resistance has that string bit (fugue?) that isn't in the TFA end titles, which adds a lot to it. The Adventures of Han is massively adventurous and, while originally seeming a bit generic, has been growing on me a lot. And Galaxy's Edge feels like an entire adventure by covering a lot of ground in 5 minutes. 2. The Rebellion is Reborn Good too, but a slight step down. It also feels a bit short, because one theme never gets much time to shine before the other takes over. 3. Scherzo for X-Wings I feel like I should like this better than I actually do. Can't explain why. I was hoping for the Star Wars version of "Scherzo for Motorcycle and Orchestra", but it's less unique than that. The way Luke's and The Force themes are worked in are quite clever, but the base melody doesn't really have the same hook as the Indiana Jones scherzo does. 4. The Jedi Steps (Concert Version) I like the film version of "The Jedi Steps" a great lot, but somehow I feel like the concert version's extra variations dilutes the power from the original. But I also haven't listened to this one very often yet, so maybe it'll go up the list at some point.

    THE ORVILLE - Show Discussion

    When the opening titles are as good as The Orville or Star Trek Voyager or Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, I quite like to watch the whole thing. Didn't like it when they shortened it on Atlantis and I don't like it now either. It isn't a deal-breaker if they don't, but I do hope the full version will return for Season 3.

    GALAXY's EDGE - New John Williams composition (2018)

    Anyone thinks this and/or AoH could be Williams doing what he originally wanted for the prequels and write a brand new Star Wars main theme? If so, which of these would function best over the opening crawl? Food for thought...

    Yep, that's the one. It appeared a few more times in various guises.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Just watched the finale. Step up from last season. Still not sure if I'm sold on the whole thing; is it just me or is there something "off" about the whole Discovery thing? It feels quite over-stuffed at the very least. I also got the impression this season had some sort of theist agenda; but not quite all the way. It's been an odd experience. I definitely liked seeing all the TOS stuff. Would love to watch a less over-stuffed series with this Enterprise and this version of her crew.

    THE ORVILLE - Show Discussion

    There´╗┐ was a melancholy music theme in the Season 2 finale that sounded to me as if it was about to break of into the theme from Seven Years in Tibet. Did anyone else notice that too?´╗┐

    SPOILER TALK: Avengers: Endgame

    https://www.gamespot.com/articles/avengers-endgame-captain-americas-ending-ruins-the/1100-6466487/ ^ Hmm... Makes some good points. And some less good ones. Hopefully there will be plenty of people talking about that and asking questions. That might help encourage Disney to finally make that Agent Carter season 3 to answer them.

    SPOILER TALK: Avengers: Endgame

    That indeed strikes me as the #1 plot hole/paradox. We knew Agent Carter lived a full life and married some unknown guy. Now we finally know that guy was Captain America after all. But how was that kept under wraps? Did he keep to the side-lines and Carter deliberately kept it 100% secret despite her role as Director of SHIELD? Jarvis from the cancelled Agent Carter TV series showing up might give a clue though. Apparently they didn't forget about it and season 2 of that series did end on quite the cliffhanger that was never explained. What if in half a year, they announce its renewal WITH Chris Evans as part of the cast this time? That would provide an opportunity to answer all the questions through brand new adventures. Apparently it didn't get enough viewers back when it was cancelled, but now that the cat's out of the bag, this would be a way to get a LOT of audience right into it. They need all the Disney+ content that they can get and this would make for quite the nice girl-power addition. That seems to be "in" these days, so why not? I can hope, right?

    Now THAT would be a twist!!! Everyone ready for THE BIG BATTLE OF WINTERFELL. And then it doesn't happen. Because the enemy doesn't care about them.

    Curious to hear what tracks you chose to include.
  25. Those are some cool little nuggets! Thanks.
