  2. It'll be one sweeping shot of the casino then cut back to Ach-To. On that BTS video, I was pleased that the saber fights, in TFA as well, were conducted with light-up props. The only time they did that before was in AOTC in the duel with Dooku and Anakin which looked okay. In-keeping with the whole tangible aesthetics these sequels are going for, it's good to see they're taking the lighting seriously. In the past the light from the saber and how it interacted with the actors was always off or non-existent.

    apple had a plan, then Steve Jobs died. Giacchino is no mere mortal. He is a GOD!
  4. If critics mention the score, they'll mention Williams by name to fill their quota.
  5. I'd like to think it would be amicable seeing as it was out of their control. No doubt Desplat would feel hurt by the experience, but his output and frequency of projects hasn't diminished.
  6. I was being sarcastic, Chen. I was also referring to how ESB introduced a bevy of new major themes, which hopefully TLJ will.

    I don't understand this raving hatred, what were people expecting, The Godfather of superhero films? If your reaction was anything other than how miserable and shitty it looked by the trailers alone, then you've been woefully mislead!

    This is my apprentice, Darth Junkie. He will find your lost score...
  9. I reckon Williams will go all-out on a march, this has to be the new ESB dammit!
  10. Video Game Thread II

    Just finished Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. A fun extra helping of A Thief's End, but with two female leads and an interesting macguffin plot. The score by Henry Jackman was good too, good enough for me to want a track and discover, *here we go again* the piece I want is unreleased! Micro-edited out of the track! Bastards! The world is very detailed and the character skins are very lifelike with the textures etc.
  11. I wish they had this discussion a year ago when I was writing my essay. Although, I agree @publicist this discussion seems so tame and lacks any in-depth inquiry about the issue, although you can definitely sense that Desplat is more pissed off. It also doesn't help when Zimmer comes out and says the industry doesn't have studio interference when it comes to scoring, the heart of most of these issues, of composers being ousted and rewrites is often entirely because of studio interference, test screenings and studio screenings/focus groups all have a say in the score, let alone what a director wants. We'll never get any in-depth discussions because these composers have laser sights pointed directly at their temples waiting for them to say it was something far more innocuous than simply 'creative differences'. For now it's the spectacle of the current big names talking about their woes.

  13. The Incredibles 2 (Brad Bird 2018)

    The only superhero film I'm looking forward to. The first film stands miles ahead of most superhero films today.
  14. 20. Finale and Confro...whoops, wrong composer...
  15. Danny Elfman's JUSTICE LEAGUE (2017)

    A very genuine response from Holkenborg indeed, and something which is at the heart of these situations that these are just humans with difficult burdens and pressure from studios. If Holkenborg's music doesn't speak to me, at least his honesty and words do.
