  1. Ehhh, I thought the VFX in Solo were really good, if a little dark. The Train Heist scene was visually perfect, and that must have been one hell of a VFX challenge. Really not sure why Black Panther was nominated though, the entire final battle section looked really, really awful.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Train Your Dragon and Solo by John Powell
  5. Also, the cast's going to have to be aged 18 years between Crimes of Grindelwald and the final film
  6. McGonagall says in the book to Umbridge that she'd been teaching there for 39 years. And we saw them try to catch a niffler for ages in film 1... surely if it were that easy, accio niffler could have been used. But yeah, some of these are bit ott.
  7. Yeah, I was strongly reminded of 'In Noctem' as well, at one point.
  8. Ehh, me and the two friends I saw it with thought it was pretty dreadful - honestly prequels level of bad. Just a really messy, badly paced, incoherent sprawl. Whereas I quite liked the first film.
  9. I thought I heard it somewhere, but no idea where... will listen again later
  10. Is that the Thunderbird one, or the one when we first see Newt in the first film on the boat?
  11. Ah sorry, I must have completely missed those! Sorry to be a fearmonger, and thanks for pointing them out!
  12. At least, there was only one overt quote that I remember Same for the Jacob theme, Newt's animal theme, Obscurus, Grindelwald... Think the only multiple-quote old themes were the healing one and Newt the hero. Would love to be proved wrong, though.
  13. So, have just heard this. Rambled thoughts. Thought the new themes were a bit weak (Dumbledore's is okay, but for some reason I still can't pick out Leta's, despite the piano track.. Is it the 2 up - 2 down four note figure?), and the longer tracks quite dull and plodding, unlike some from the first film, but maybe I'll warm to them in time. Themes return (If I'm not mistaken, all of them?) but really not very many times, by my reckoning (Which is a shame, as I loved the themes from the first score) The slowww build up to the action in 'The Thestral Chase' was deliciously dark. Think the most fun for me was 'Newt and Jacob pack for Paris', which borrows heavily from the titular end credits track. Also contains Jacob's theme! 'Capturing the Zouwu' has a fun Newt hero theme. 'Travelling to Hogwarts' contains the great FB theme (couldn't obviously hear it anywhere else ) I loved 'Salamander Eyes', as heard in the preview. 'Matagots' is really fun (Hero theme again, some borrowed from the escape from MACUSA) 'Spread the Word' builds to "epicness" - simple string ostinato + big chords... bit generic 'Wands into the Earth' I remember pretty cool in places. I think overall it's slightly lesser to the first score, so overall a little disappointed on first listen, though I often am, due to over-high expectations. But there is some really great writing in there! I expect this'll be a grower, not a show-er.
  14. 8 hrs 11 mins! Gonna stay up until midnight for this one

    If anyone's come up with such a playlist, please let me know, as I'm sure I' prefer this in shorter form, too.
