  1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Raiders of the Lost Ark Birdman The Fellowship of the Ring The Two Towers The Return of the King And seeing Home Alone today! Star Wars in January. I also had tickets to see E.T. and Naked Lunch but wasn't able to make it. Apollo 13, the Williams Harry Potters, Interstellar, and Jurassic Park are at the top of my wish list. That's a thing?

    Your favorite statement of the Imperial March

    It's a tie for me among the AOTC statement, "Approaching the Death Star" from ROTJ, and this magnificent beauty:

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    In my opinion, it's his best score.
  4. "One of the things I love about film music is if i want to go and do my psychedelic country western heavy metal album, there probably is a movie...there's a producer somewhere going 'banjos and fuzz guitars - I need it!' You're required to experiment; that's the call." - Hans Zimmer Terence Blanchard's relationship with Spike Lee sounds like every composer's dream, too.

    Films that were most emotionally touching for you

    House of Sand and Fog is utterly devastating. It's the only movie I ever give "trigger warnings" for. Requiem for a Dream would be a close second, though. On the positive side of emotion, I still can't watch the end of Apollo 13 without tearing up.
  7. Heavy Trip. It's basically a Finnish heavy metal Blues Brothers. And it's fucking hilarious. The Catcher Was a Spy was excellent, and it's a shame people got the wrong idea about what kind of movie it's supposed to be, because it should really be getting a lot more press. I can't say anything else really has left that much of an impression on me yet, but this is about the time of year I start paying attention again.

    As a born-and-raised Midwesterner, other than the action music (although is "Run" the most Shorian action piece ever?), the score strikes me as very Midwestern. I think it's the pacing.

    What interests you in theatrical films today?

    I don't often bother with anything besides the film festival these days. There's just not much that's interested me lately. I haven't seen a "blockbuster" since Jumanji (which, honestly, I found really fun). There aren't a whole lot of films which really demand a "cinema experience" (Loving Vincent comes to mind). That said, I'm probably going to see Green Book tomorrow. Oh what should have been.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    A Dinesh D'Souza crapfest that posits today's Democrats are the ideological heirs to the Nazis and Trump is the only one who can save us from them... Decent score, though.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Hunh. It's one of the few Williams scores I find the electronics really add something.
