    GAME OF THRONES

    If anyone's interested, apparently an official vocal version of Jenny of Oldstones does exist on iTunes/Spotify/something else.

    If that's the case, I have even mroe reasons to hate everything about the industry. This is utterly absurd.

    Is this incompetence or a deliberate fuck you to potential buyers? The song crowd will love this.

    Now, wait a moment... No vocal version of Old Jenny on the OST? Seriously?! This albu is 2 hours long and includes an abhorrent Rains of Castomere cover, but Old Jenny isn't here? That's just so typical.

    I don't think Westeros had a benefit system, though. Or would Dany have installed one?

    But what if his mind is travelling elsewhere?

    Episode 6. Fan-tas-tic. Simply fantastic. What's the Night's Watch going to do now, though, and how will Greyworm (the bastard) make sure Snow doesn't father any children? Overall, the music was great, maybe a little Stark theme overload and I don't like choirs singing the GOT main theme in unison, but other than that... SPLENDID.

    The Quick Question Thread

    So are you saying that Hollywood just couldn't afford or refused to use proper recording equipment? I'm absolutely blown away by the difference.

    The Quick Question Thread

    Another one. I just heard an excerpt of Wagner's Ring Cycle recorded in 1965 (conducted by Solti). Why does that sound way better than nearly all the film scores I've heard from that time?

    I'm about to go to bed and the most exciting thing about this whole thing right now for me will be me waking up and checking if the number of thread pages is still 225 in the morning. That's how invested I am at the moment.

    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    I didn't say that, I said it was uncalled for and unnecessary. Serves little to no purpose.

    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Django unchained. I really liked it at first. My only remarks would have been that they could have deleted a few of Christoph Waltz's monologues and that I didn't like how Jamie Foxx started being all rude to DiCaprio, but other than that, great. But I had yet to watch the ending. Why? Why couldn't the story just finish with them buying Broomhilda? That would have been so bittersweet and poignant. But no, instead we get a pointless shootout that sends Waltz to the afterlife in a mere matter of seconds. I'm not saying I'm not happy with how things turned out in the end and part of me realises that most of what happened had to happen in order for us to get there, but it still feels somewhat forced and unnecessary. As usual, I liked most of the music and the song underscoring Broomhilda entering the dining room was deeply, deeply moving. Tarantino might not be a perfect director, but he knows damn well what he's doing when he chooses the music for his movies.

    GAME OF THRONES

    What I find weird is that I've loved watching this show most of the time: I never watched interviews or read articles or anything like that, but always liked watching. And tomorrow we'll have the finale, but I'm feeling totally relaxed about it, not even excited. I'll happily accept whatever they give me, but there's not really a lot of anticipation on my end.

    Did you ever get more info on this? It just took me 10 attempts before I could order The Amazing Spider-Man...

    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Philomena. I didn't want to watch it at first because I don't particularly like Judi Dench, but it's certainly not bad at all. I didn't know Irish people used first names so frequently and really want to go back to Ireland now (to hear more of that delicious accent, not to learn more about this tragedy, though that might come up later). The ending is rather abrupt, however, and there's also something decidedly light-hearted about the movie, which is inappropriate given the dramatic subject it tackles, but Steve Coogan and the girls in the flashbacks were all excellent. The score is mostly light-hearted as well and has a few outstanding moments.

    Harry Potter 7CD Collection - MUSIC discussion

    I agree about Aragog, but the movie did call for the placement of those HP1 cues. The alternative would be to have It's Guarding Something right after The Moving Stairs, which doesn't work either.

    The Official Intrada Thread

    So what changed? I still don't understand why higher-profile scores are selling less quickly these days.

    The City of Prague re-recorded Hedwig's Theme, Harry's Wondrous World and Nimbus 2000. Stay away from Hedwig's Theme.

    Harry Potter 7CD Collection - MUSIC discussion

    couldn't agree more. HP1 and 2 might have short tracks, but the scores just work incredibly well the way they're written. It's very dififcult to present 3 in the same way.
  22. But isn't 25 minutes of music too little to do a recording session?
  23. Will check this out later.

    Harry Potter 7CD Collection - MUSIC discussion

    I'll try and remember to post it when it's done. A lot of MM's tracks, like Summoning the Patronus, really work very well for me, but I'm totally against unchronological combinations and I think every track ending should sound like one, so that means The Newspaper and the film version of the first Boggart is one track, hardly cross-faded but definitely one cue.
