  1. Who’s Behind Those Foster Grants contains Giacchino’s Iron Man theme from Homecoming!
  2. I currently have The Book of Lost Tales, parts 1 & 2, and found this reddit thread which gives some help on which are likely to be of interest: Maybe the most helpful is the top post: "The Book of Lost Tales Part 1 - is a collection of Tolkien's early ideas - sort of a proto-proto Silmarillion. Interesting, but apart from the framing narrative and some stories that were never developed further, it's mostly a collection of drafts. The Book of Lost Tales Part 2 - ditto, being the second half of the above. The Lays of Beleriand - Children of Hurin and Beren & Luthien in verse form. Worth a read, but not 'essential'. The Shaping of Middle-earth - Basically tracing how Lost Tales became the early Silmarilion. Beyond a few maps it's again a draft collection. Going by what you've said, I'd skip this one. The Lost Road and Other Writings - An interesting collection of bits and pieces. Part II is more Silmarillion drafts, but Part I shows the beginings of Numenor. The Return of the Shadow - Fellowship of the Ring drafts. Only of interest if you like the idea of tracing the development of Tolkien's ideas - skip if you only care about the finished form. The Treason of Isengard - Fellowship and Two Towers drafts. Same deal as the above. The War of the Ring - Towers and Return of the King drafts. Ditto. Sauron Defeated - drafts to the end of the story, plus a bunch of other stuff. Well worth a look. Morgoth's Ring - Silmarilion drafts followed by two really interesting sections. Get this, even if if nothing else. The War of the Jewels - the second half is full of material that appears nowhere else. It's sort of 'part two' of the above. I'd get this if I were you. The Peoples of Middle-earth - an absolute treasure trove. Well worth it."
  3. There's that noodling upwards low strings bit, as heard after the big Kylo Ren theme early in "Escape", among other places.
  4. Hi Karol, out of interest, do you have a shortened playlist you could recommend for this? I agree that it’d sound better in a shorter presentation
  5. Has the track been deleted? The link is broken for me
  6. You had to pay import tax for that, too? 😛
  7. You can also hear it peeking out from behind the Hidden World theme in 'The Hidden World' and the Suite - most obviously near 3:00 in the former track, I think? Unless that's the Fate riff, I'm not actually so sure, listening to it back again. But yeah, it's in 'Where No One Goes', 'Test Drive', and... everywhere!
  8. Yesterday: John Powell - How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World John Powell - How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (again) This morning: John Powell - How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (again)
  9. I just saw the film yesterday, and loved it - thought the music was mixed perfectly well for the most part, and stood out wonderously in a few places
  10. Ah true, I hadn't caught that in LotR, I assumed they were mountains made up for the new series, rather than copied off the map from FotR. Could there be enough in the appendices to make the whole kin-strife/Castamir shebang into a series? Those passages always seemed quite dramatic to me.
  11. Why's no-one talking about Calenardhon being on the map - I thought this series was going to be about the adventures of Aragorn?
