  1. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    The demons aren't puppets!
  2. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    No, just beautiful she-demons ascending from Hell on flaming motorcyles whenever I hear that cue.
  3. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    I have been for quite awhile! xD Though fortunately for my sanity, I'm taking a break. And eugh, it's just the colors on that cover is what looks ugly to me.
  4. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    Don't hear anythin', chum. That cover sure is the pits though. I should probably change it to something more appealing in my digital library..
  5. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    There's some splendid variety in Powell's animation scores (because, again, animation isn't a genre), it's just most people don't want to bother giving it a chance because it's animated and therefore inherently less worthy of attention than the score to Logan or Shape of Water or Black Panther or what have you . But I stopped caring about that awhile ago. It's a shame, but what the hey, more for me. Powell does whatever movie he wants, and if he wants to do Rio and that's what makes him happy, that's none of my business. I pretty much put the superhero movies in the same category as Star Wars. It's fun to watch discussions on them, but talking about them compels me more than actually watching it. They make money, so I guess it's what people want and it's what makes them happy. They're not for me, so I just shrug and move on to things I am into, be it something offered by the mainstream or digging through the dirt in other ways.

    At least animated movies generally offer a bit more color than the superhero sameness.
  7. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    No. Give Powell an INTERESTING movie. Besides, that percussion is what he's always done. Just as playing with syths is what Goldsmith did (and I love 'em, and some people don't). You can't say you don't like that aspect of his action music, then say he needs to get those action superhero movies.

    Ya bunch of wrinkled old geezers! If ya can't take the action music, get outta the kitchen!
  9. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    I know! The opportunity to have anything of particular poignancy to say to him or ask him anything is there, but I don't know what to say or ask!
  10. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    Yeah, I like that flow too. It's like comparing an album to the complete score. Even though this isn't the complete score. Hopefully I'm making sense. But.... Good GOD Into the Maw is AMAZZIIIIIIIIINNNNNGGGG. You can just feel the orchestra close to a breaking point at the mercy of Powell's power.
  11. The Official James Horner Thread

    Aw, thanks,mac! Yer a real pal! I'll confess then that J. Williams is in my top ten, but not my top five.
  12. John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    I don't get it either, but what the hey, I'm happy even those weirdos are finding SOME level of enjoyment with this! I've been playing this score practically non-stop the past couple days, and haven't gotten tired of hearing the whole thing in order. I'm only taking a break now because I need to, not because I WANT to! Ferdinand is a masterpiece of his that slowly but surely wins you over. This one just grabs you and doesn't let go! You're either ready for the ride or you'd better get off! Who knows, TFA and TLJ's attempts at action sound so stiff and emotionless in comparison, this is probably quite jarring.
  13. The Official James Horner Thread

    ...There are other people that love Horner more than Williams? ...Is it safe to come out then? Though I don't really find any reason to argue one composer's strengths against another's, it's merely that I pull out Horner albums a bit more often. I know there's the whole "But all his scores sound the same!" nonsense, but you can really say that for any composer, and that's just the consequence of trying to listen to every single score of a composer you like. Hence I don't feel the need to own any more Goldsmith's than I already do, for example.
