  1. Not sure if this has been said yet, but David W Collins of Star Wars Oxygen is back with his own score podcast. https://www.soundtrackpodcast.com
  2. Alan Silvestri's READY PLAYER ONE (2018)

    Very refreshing to see an interviewer who actually is knowledgeable and appreciative of film music. But when Spielberg was explaining it, those two actors looked like he was speaking an alien language though.
  3. I'm going to the Baltimore concert in June. This adds a little personality to the orchestra.
  4. Marvel Cinematic Universe Thread

    Decided to see what it would be like if Silvestri scored all 3 Cap films. It's disappointing to think of the lost potential in musical continuity, but glad he's back for Infinity War. I hope to hear Caps theme return, as it's my favourite theme in the MCU. https://1drv.ms/v/s!Akz-9hNbLAnnhjAGcy7xp5ojequL
  5. I still have to convince myself that this film is real. Everything about it just makes me laugh with utter shame for it.
  6. Alan Silvestri's READY PLAYER ONE (2018)

    The theme is already officially stuck in my head. The melody itself is undeniably Silvestri. I can hear Stuart Little, Captain America, Back to the Future, Forest Gump and Parent Trap flavourings all in the structure of the theme. He definitely can make many new themes from one path of notes.
  7. James Bond #25

    I should be able to ask Arnold directly considering he's at this years Krakow Film Music Festival and I'll be attending, and I can hope for any sort of answer to whether he's interested in the first place and whether he's heard anything at all.
  8. Alan Silvestri's READY PLAYER ONE (2018)

    - The brass stabs at 1:31 is so Horner. - The high ceremonial brass at 1:51 is so Williams. - The shape of the melody itself is so Silvestri! A perfect combination. I LOVE IT!!!! P.S. - The way the strings rise as the brass falls at 1:58 is sublime! Gorgeous orchestration.
  9. Still waiting on my real tickets. Always like having a physical ticket.
  10. I'd recognise that conducting style anywhere.
  11. I hope someone makes a huge error and mixes the score to the wrong film. Then Giacchino does another Star Wars score and Williams writes a new theme for Jurassic Park.
  12. So... thoughts on who should score this? I doubt Howard Shore is interested, and wouldn't fit this film any way, from the sounds of the plot. I fear it will be a generic composer, but I hope for someone who can build a new tapestry of a musical world. My pick would be Bear McCreary. It looks like an overly CGI version of Mad Max Fury Road.
  13. Who should Score Peter Jackson's Mortal Engines?

    Really? I think it's pretty obvious. Jackson is the one really making the film. Rivers is great with what he did on LOTR and the Hobbit, but this is clearly a PJ production that he just chose not to direct. PJ has been developing this film for 9 years. And all of his production companies are making it. Christian Rivers literally works for PJ and has done for decades.
  14. Who should Score Peter Jackson's Mortal Engines?

    That's what the marketing is calling it, for name recognition And technically he is producing it and he wrote it with Boyens and Walsh. And I'm sure he guided Christian while filming.
  15. Who should Score Peter Jackson's Mortal Engines?

    I would choose JNH first for most things, so I agree, but I really do want McCreary to finally get a big budget film to do.
  16. Williams donates all his scores to Juilliard

    John Williams' personality makes me want to cry at how much I adore him.
  17. Best flying chase, best scored

    Does this count? Considering Bond does chase him and they jump off cranes 😎
  18. Intriguing fictitious film titles

    What To Exspectre When You're Exspectreing
  19. Sounds like Europe is the 'Han Solo and the Princess' of places to Williams.
  20. Disney are so powerful that they can do what the hell they want. Their legal team will shut this down swiftly and the artist will get no recognition from them.
  21. James Newton Howard's 'Red Sparrow'

    Nice interview with JNH about the score. He says he wrote the long ballet suits in only a couple of days. https://www.kusc.org/culture/out-and-about-blog/music-for-moving-pictures-james-newton-howard/
  22. Williams said he has never conducted in Europe. Perhaps he doesn't class the UK as Europe.
