  2. I can't believe he didn't get an instrumental composition nomination for Rey's theme or End credits.

    I love when I hear snippets from other scores. I'm sure it was a coincidence though. Like Heartbeeps in Catch Me or Accidental in Indy III.

    Yes! I recognized Fury the moment I heard the clip too.

    What was the last GREAT theme?

    This is such a great and recognizable theme that I play it in my classes to get students to clear their desks.
  6. When you write that it's the longer version of The Cowboys, is it a new arrangement? Or is it that you've never heard the concert version before? Is close encounters different because it doesn't include the extra music for the spaceship walk?

    Wasn't the airport scene in Home Alone tracked with Nutcracker?

    Star Wars ep 4-6 versus 1-3 Action Music

    If Ep 4-6 had been released after 1-3, with all the same music, I think a lot of people would say that Ep 1-3 action music was superior.

    86th Academy Awards

    I agree with king mark if he was being serious ... And I think Visitor on Himmel Street is the best cue of the year ... I can't think of anyone else today who would have handled the scene in the film any better.

    Cues that made you a Williams fan

    To the Lair from Superman. Mine Car Chase from Temple of Doom. Adv on Earth from ET. March from 1941.

    Star Wars ep 4-6 versus 1-3 Action Music

    Maybe it's because I've been listening to Star Wars since the mid-80's, but I don't listen to anything from the original trilogy anymore ... but I LOVE Escape from Naboo (I can have that on repeat for 10 minutes), the Battle of Naboo (fan edit), and Chase through Coruscant. You know, Chase Through Coruscant is what I always play in my head whenever I watch a chase in a modern movie, most recently the chase in Lego: the Movie.

    John's most "genuine" scores/pieces

    I like to think that Taking Pictures from Stepmom is what plays when John takes long walks and reflects.

    What are the most uninteresting themes of Williams?

    I think the themes to Sleepers, the River, and Always are stellar! (though the rest of the scores are eh). But at least the themes are wonderful. Film Score Monthly named Sleepers the Best Score of 1996! But Dracula? I find it boring. Midway? I know it's a good march, but I don't like it at all. Family Plot? Never got into that theme, either. Long Goodbye ... that one too. So: Dracula, Midway, Family Plot, Long Goodbye are all the scores I leave out of my Williams playlist. My playlist has 1-4 tracks from every Williams score, which I play often for the past 20 years. Edit: I have the theme from Poseidon Adv. on the playlist, but I generally skip it.
  14. Well, with the season 36 weeks long but series filming only 21-24 episodes a season, there are bound to be repeats, as another poster said. Series during the 50s and 60s filmed up to 30 episodes a year. I do like show time and hbo that air their shows all in a row, and Fox did that with mid season 24.
