  1. If Solo turns out to be pretty good, I actually wouldn't mind Disney making more sequels featuring the character. It could be an adventure serial, like Indiana Jones, set within the larger Star Wars universe, with Han and Chewie screwing around the galaxy and going on adventures.
  2. An immensely creepy and masterfully framed shot that establishes Hal as a force to be reckoned with. "Dave, although you took very thorough precautions in the pod against my hearing you, I could see your lips move".
  3. Yes, many great scenes from Raiders. I've always loved this one in particular: One of the most eerie and awe-inspiring shots ever in a movie. The VFX may be somewhat dated, but the atmosphere of the Ark ceremony sequence is still so terrifying.
  4. I've always really loved this shot from the closing scenes of The Godfather Part III: The death of Michael Corleone. A haunting parallel to Vito's death in his garden from the first film, except that unlike his father, he is alone when he dies. There are no loved ones near him as he passes. He is utterly alone.
  5. Disney would never reveal such a major character's name in a casting call. It's mostly likely (1) misdirection or (2) a nickname for the character used during the casting process.
  6. I thought this would make for an interesting thread... so here it goes. What are your favorite single shots in a movie? For me, it will always be this scene from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial: The imagery of a bicycle in silhouette over the moon, accompanied in film by Williams' magnificent score, will always remain, in my opinion, the greatest single shot in cinema.
  7. James Cameron Says the ‘Avatar’ Sequels Are a ‘Godfather’-Like Family Saga So skip the third one, I guess.
  8. Finn’s Theme and Imperial March

    I do not see the resemblance between the two themes.
  9. It is very much intentional. I don't see how anyone can't hear the deliberate parallel between the piece and Vader's theme.
  10. John Powell's FERDINAND (2017)

    So that's what you've been doing all this time you've been away...
  11. It really is a great score. Much better than many here make it out to be.
  12. The Official Bloodboal's Post Archive

    Here are his superb reviews for the LOTR trilogy. I see he has already begun to clear his threads in the "JWFan Reviews" subforum; I am glad he has not touched these yet!
  13. New poster for Solo: A Star Wars Story:
  14. Chariots of Fire, by Vangelis Yes, the 80s synth sounds a little dated nowadays, but it's still a wonderful, uplifting score for an inspiring film. "Abraham's Theme" is ethereal. **** and 1/2 out of *****
