  1. Do you own the OST album of Return of the Jedi?

    I can't leave it. I'm listening to the OST already, remember? But I bet I know someone who can. And from his point of view, he just got here too.
  2. Really? I know a couple people who saw it at that age and credit it with affecting their life in a deeply positive way.
  3. John Williams: Unpopular Opinions

    I love the Indy scores, especially TLC. They remind me of childhood. Those films weren't the sprawling bombast of something like Star Wars. They were lighter, and in a way more engaging romps. Summer films caught on VHS or on TV in brief snatches more often than in full, intermingled with the other various activities of youth in the summer. A hazy evening in July and a casual screening of Raiders go well in hand. It was a lovely time. John Williams was then, to me, a somewhat vague figure who I knew spent time up in the quiet of Tanglewood, who seemed redolent of Boston, New England, and a sort of academic Americana moreso than of Hollywood, and who I felt must have written Henry Jones' theme for himself, being a wise sage of an older gentleman. I don't think this is an unpopular opinion, I'm pretty sure many children of the early 80s, and probably the 90s too, feel the same way.
  4. Anyone else prefer desexed female characters because then you don't have to worry about getting an erection in the theater and perhaps injuring your penis?
  5. God, there just aren't many moments in music that are more moving than this one. Cameron and Horner tapped into something so profoundly human in its bittersweet tragedy with Titanic. I'll not hear anything about it being schmaltzy.
  6. That is typically my experience with movies that have "social messages" yes. And with that element not landing for me, there wasn't much else to grab onto either. Just another superhero flick. Why I still see them is uncertain.
  7. I thought it was pretty shitty. Not quite Thor 2 but exceedingly lame.
  8. Yes lest anyone think I'm being serious, that is a nice story about a wonderful and brilliant man.
  9. The score - and film - only get boring for me once they disembark to confront V'ger. It's ok, it's just sort of rushed from then to the end and feels more like a tacked on TV episode ending than a good climax and denouement to something of this length. I'd usually just rewind the tape at that point and watch again, and I basically do the same thing while listening to the score nowadays.
  10. The white stuff (snow)

    After experiencing wildfires, I'll take months of snow any day with no complaint.
  11. This guy is a windbag. No surprise that Blume likes him!
