  1. THE POST - SCORE Thread

    It could just a be an edit in post, adding a section from somewhere else?
  2. My copy of The Post arrived, a sizeable crack on the front from ironically poor handling in the post. Going to see if I can pick up a replacement. You pay extra for physical items, so when I get cranky that my CD case is damaged it's because I bought a product and not a digital download!
  3. The Positive Peter Thread!

    For all of Game of Throne's reception as a gritty, more realistic universe than Tolkien's, the LOTR films manage to look more real and tangible than a majority of GoT.
  4. The Positive Peter Thread!

    Dolly shots and lots of tracking too, it's just unfortunate PJ had so much on his plate in every other aspect of the films.
  5. The Positive Peter Thread!

    He transferred just enough of that storyboarding/DP into The Hobbit films to make them feel like they're cut from the same cloth. You really get drawn into conspiracies, into the seriousness and weight of the plot just by these reactions he can create. I was trying to find a few shots from AUJ where it's a side profile of one of the cast and just their eyes turning towards the camera that I think are great examples of his craft as a filmmaker and storyteller.
  6. Maybe I've seen too many. Alright! I over-reacted but it's just the most unlikely thing ever. JW ain't gonna appear unless he's paid twice his wage!
  7. The Positive Peter Thread!

    Reactionary shots like these are what I love from PJ.
  8. A petition to have Williams appear in Episode 9? Why? This petition is the most cringe-inducing thing I've ever witnessed.
  9. THE POST - FILM Thread

    I won double passes to see the film, looking forward to hearing the score in context.
  10. Just goes to show how far the rot has spread, critique company policies that proactively discriminate in the name of diversity and you get an angry mob of people who want to publicly humiliate, bully, berate and sneer, mounting witch hunts and smear campaigns to get others fired; all actions these far leftist types would ironically advocate against.
  11. I loved the film, but I also understand why audiences and critics were underwhelmed. My reaction is almost the same as Tomorrowland, the other unfortunate major Disney flop.
  12. Yes, it's a shame because that cue is so propulsive and the chanting adds to the mayhem of the chase. Ben Burtt was the sound designer on Into Darkness and The Force Awakens, coincidence?
  13. Whoever has them are surely coveting them whilst nursing a shotgun like a baby. "Ain't nobody gon' take muh precious baby girl" "Mavis, what in the flyin' fuck have I told you 'bout starin' at my FYC collecty-bulls?" "Oh Jimmy, I'm sorry man, you were like my own flesh 'n blood, you just had to go and touch my rare The Last Jedi CD, now i'm gon' kill ya!"
  14. There's a wealth of good unreleased material from TFA that's juicy in a non-thematic way, some really interesting underscore.
