  1. I'm gonna be real disappointed if the 60's theme isn't used throughout the movie. It's a great melody (that is very Spider-Man-y, unlike the Horner and Zimmer efforts). and Giacchino killed it in the he posted.
  2. Probably the one memorable part of this score for me is the final cue before the credits roll (looks like the track called "Between Life and Death"), because I can't recall another time I've been able to tell on first viewing what temp tracks were initially used, but this scene was definitely temp tracked with Zimmer's "A Watchful Guardian," which is obvious for a couple of reasons, but mostly because Tyler basically just does a rip-off.
  3. I saw The Mummy too, a bit back. Considerably worse than all three of those as a film (I quite liked all of those, didn't care much at all for Mummy), score-wise probably the least too, though not too much so as they're all kinda on the generic side (WW had its moments though).
  4. As a soundtrack: Star Wars As a score: Star Wars As a score in the film: Star Wars As a film: Star Wars They're all great, but nothing will ever beat the classic. Best score/film of all time, in my opinion.
  5. Williams 1. Star Wars 2. Empire Strikes Back 3. E.T. Herrmann 1. Vertigo 2. Taxi Driver 3. probably a four way tie but let's just say North By Northwest for now Morricone 1. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly 2. The Thing 3. Cinema Paradiso Kinda surprised by all the Horner love. Not certain he'd even make my top ten.
  6. Surprised no one's mentioned Planet of the Apes. That's my pick anyway.
  7. Exactly! Well said. Always the first moment that comes to mind when I think of that score - it sticks in your head throughout the film even when Kane and Herrmann have moved on so far from it.
  8. Great cue but 1:04-1:17 specifically
  9. From what I understand the unreleased TFA suite material is just the full "Jedi Steps" and the "Finale" ending variation, right? Is there anything in "Rey's Theme," "March of the Resistance," "Scherzo for X-Wings," and the "Finale" (otherwise) that isn't already covered by the OST? EDIT: Or wait just realized maybe I'm dumb and you're just talking about the fact that the five TFA tracks make up the overall TFA suite (rather than there being material not included on the OST).
  10. Ahhh! Yes, perfect! __ Meanwhile my little sister just sent me video of her high school band playing the TFA Finale. If only they were that cool when I was there...
  11. The Last The Last Jedi session Session
  12. I need a quality recording of the Jedi Steps concert suite in my life.
  13. What makes you think that's not the case? Johnson specifically mentioned his music editor. The situation seems very clear to me. Edit the film, then add temp to get a feel for the film when watching it. Remove temp, have JW watch and write his own score. What about this all is so hard for people to believe? For me it's the only scenario that makes any sense.
