  1. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    After a first listen, Solo definitely blows Rogue One out of the water for me.
  2. The Birthday Thread

    May yours be a happy day of birth, Stefan, Son of Cosman.
  3. Your Favorite Renditions of The Force Theme?

    I appreciate you sending this my way, bud. Thanks.

  5. Yeah, but I'm gonna go ahead and just deny it. Undeniable based off of what? Don't say it was definitively Rowling that vetoed Williams being involved on DH and then come back and say that you only "heard that" and that it could have been Yates. Edit: I'm sorry for the curtness.
  6. Even stranger given the fact that James Newton Howard, an American composer, would then go on to score Fantastic Beasts, a film that Rowling arguably had much more of an active role in than DH I & II, having written the entire screenplay for it and whatnot. Not entirely sure I'm convinced.
  7. Implying that Williams wrote all of the music for COS and not Ross is the real joke here.
  8. This all still feels a little too surreal.
  9. Marvel Cinematic Universe Thread

    Their order in the post needs to be switched. The Infinity War poster came first. The Dragon Ball poster was done by a Reddit user afterward.
  10. Alan Silvestri's THE AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR (2018)

    Does anybody know if these show up on the soundtrack at all? I think the tesseract theme is in the Undying Fidelity track, but I haven't caught Cap's theme yet.
  11. Alan Silvestri's THE AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR (2018)

    Did Cap's theme appear at all, that you could tell?
  12. What do you think about The Spark from The Last Jedi?

    When the sequel trilogy was first announced, that was the theme I had most wanted reprised from the OT. The theme itself has always been one of the more emotionally-driven themes from Star Wars for me, but then to have it played within the scene under the now unfortunate context of it being the last scene we'll get between Fisher and Hamill makes it that much more so. The second half, as has already been summed up here more concisely than I ever can be, is absolutely fantastic. The complete silence in the theater as we see Luke step out to that slow build of the cue, with the captivation and engrossment from the audience so palpable in the air, was hands down the biggest highlight of my moviegoing experiences last year. I really like how this trilogy has seen almost a blending of the ways Williams wrote themes for the prequel and original trilogies, with most of the thematic material being character-based as was seen with the OT but still getting great thematic statements for the big event moments within the film like we saw a lot with the PT (seeing Luke at the end of TFA, Luke embracing the legend as he steps out to face Kylo in TLJ, etc). It's also just great fun to have, like we do with that last half of the cue, something from Williams that I can't point to and say that it sounds like something he previously wrote. You just hear it and wonder "woah, where did that come from?"
  13. Official Indiana Jones 5 Thread

    I can agree with that.

    I dunno. I've always really liked it when heroes are allowed to age. Can't really place why. It kinda humanizes them in a way, knowing that they got to live and grow and change as the years went by. Or perhaps it is just getting to see these characters at different points in their life? Kinda adds another layer to things. I don't know. I'm incoherently rambling as usual.
