  1. Oh shit, missed that. Still, an odd choice.
  2. Why would you include Almost Human?
  3. Solo: A Star Wars Story (Ron Howard 2018)

    Rush is really good though, at least.
  4. Listening to the score in film, while it obviously lacked that Vangelis spark, I thought it was a fine successor score, and didn't really mind the heavier, more modern sound. Listening to the album (couple times now), it's hard not to call this a disappointment. I don't mind the heavy bass and odd percussions (in the film they mostly blend into the sound design), but there really isn't enough melodic stuff. Vangelis had some really beautiful compositions throughout the original, and that definitely feels lacking here. Oddly enough I feel like Dunkirk has moments that sound more like Vangelis than parts of this. I don't think these were necessarily the wrong people for the job, I just don't think they did as good a job as they could have.
  5. The Force Awakens Disney Records OST

    Really? Do you think they weren't happy with the recording used for the original film (probably the most perfect one there's been) and that's why they did a new one for Empire and Jedi? I always thought reusing the TPM recording for AOTC and ROTS was just saving time and/or being lazy. Either way, a disappointing aspect of both scores.
  6. Star Wars: Episode IX (JJ Abrams 2019)

    This has been a thing since the 1960s, at the least.
  7. The Force Awakens Disney Records OST

    I completely agree. Though I don't know if that comes from being exhausted of the TPM recording (used in all the prequels and every video game, audiobook, you name it from 1999-present).
  8. Star Wars: Episode IX (JJ Abrams 2019)

    I'm not sure the timing really makes sense there. Hypothetically, he'd have been planning his next film as soon as TFA was finished. Trevorrow being ousted probably didn't seem like a possibility until a few months ago. And even if JJ magically predicted he'd have that opening, he still could have made another film in the time between TFA and IX. Most likely he just wanted some time off.
  9. Star Wars: Episode IX (JJ Abrams 2019)

    It is kinda weird that JJ didn't take on anything directing-wise after TFA, but it isn't really that big a deal that he's grabbed IX if his deal expires early next year anyway. And it's not like he hasn't been making movies for Paramount, he just hasn't been directing them. Calling JJ a dick for this is absurd. The only person who should give a shit are Paramount execs.
  10. The Definitive "Battle Of The Decades" Poll!

    Flip those around, that's me.
  11. James Bond #25

    Beyonce doesn't need the attention, though I'm sure she'd appreciate the Oscar.
