  1. I think you are confusing him for his brother, Hardon.
  2. Possible because of Theon betraying Rob back in the day. If anybody could do it, it'd be Tyrion.
  3. Yeah, I fucking hate this thread.
  4. I have to go with the Grail theme. Not only is it a great and very fitting theme, but it's probably one of my favorite Williams themes in general. I like how some of the renditions sound borderline medieval at times, and almost feels like it could have doubled as a theme for King Arthur and his knights had Williams ever scored such a film, though I can't quite express why. I like how the theme is primarily given modest and humble renditions that hint at something more grandiose (and indeed there are a few grander statements later on), almost to play up expectations to an extravagant grail reveal in the final act, while still also befitting the cup's true meager form.
  5. Really liked this shot from the new episode:
  6. Here's wishing you a very happy birthday, @Not Mr. Big. I hope you have and/or are having a really great day, bud.
  7. I caught his Dallas show a couple weeks back. Went in with a heavy bit of skepticism, having read a lot of seemingly hyperbolic reviews on it going into it, and I was still blown away. Exceeded all expectations. That Zimmer guy sure knows how to put on a show. I was quite impressed with how well so many of his works lended themselves to a rock setting, almost like that was how he had intended for them to be played all along and he had just toned it back for use in the films. I hope he tours again sometime. That's honestly why, and I know I'll get some hate for this, but I really enjoy parts of Man of Steel. Zimmer had of course gone bombastic in scores before, but the chance to score a totally mindless bombastic movie (something like Transformers, for example) had eluded him. With Man of Steel, Zimmer finally got his own Transformers to score, a film so bombastic and pseudo-grandiloquent that he finally was afforded the opportunity to go totally apeshit, and the result is so balls to the wall nuts that I can't help but have fun listening to it, loud noise and all.
  8. As far as this forum is concerned, there's definitely a learning curve involved, and it can be a bit abrasive at times, but I honestly think in the last couple years we've seen that lessen a bit. One of the great aspects to joining a community like this is being able to experience and embrace all the different flavors each user brings to the table. Some of those are going to be a bit unsavory, but I myself still want to taste them because I'm not getting the full flavor without them. It's tough to imagine myself really wanting JWFan to be much different. Sometimes I can see douchebag behavior on brilliant display here, true, but I'm not in any way confident in calling anyone a straight-up douchebag. Truth be told, I've met some of the nicest Internet users on here. All in all, this place has much more character than a film score forum deserves to have, and I think that's part of why I like it so much.
  9. Even that's being a little generous.
  10. Within my post, I was trying to use limp and structurally unsound logic to make a bad joke. I apologize for the confusion.
  11. The tasteful use of the bagpipes during the climactic final battle is especially awe-inspiring.
  12. If you, erm, find that you need any help discussing certain parts of that question, feel free to shoot me a PM and I possibly might be able to try and help you, um, discuss it.
  13. I don't really care for Rogue One's score as a whole, despite it having a couple moments I appreciate. It gets a negative score for me (approx. -1). I haven't heard Powell's score so I'm neutral on it (neither negative or positive, 0). Because 0 is greater than -1, I currently must like Powell's Han Solo score better than Giacchino's Rogue One score.
  14. Him and Hans both, heh heh...
