  1. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Yep, Cluzet and mar Sy were terrific. Not surprised notable directors and Hollywood, took notice of the later. Very touching film as well. I liked it quite a bit.
  2. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    The Intouchables - 8.5 / 10
  3. Yeah it just intentionally treated more like short sound, though, so I can understand anyone who thinks there was no music.
  4. Star Wars: Episode IX (JJ Abrams 2019)

    I'd say none of them are objectively very good films though, and The Phantom Menace does have some cool moments, but it spends most of its time trying to really hard to pander to younger audiences, and as a result has really dumb moments. Revenge of The Sith is very entertaining though.
  5. Star Wars: Episode IX (JJ Abrams 2019)

    Hopefully it'll not just be a copy though, even though Johnson has been basically saying it may be in interviews. That would be quite unfortunately. The prequel trilogy is just misunderstood. It's independent experimental art-house films, that happened to get wide-released in theaters, don't you see?
  6. Right now, who are your Top 5 film composers?

    Horner kept that "accent", up until the end. Good interview, he really wears that scarf.
  7. Star Wars: Episode IX (JJ Abrams 2019)

    I think TFA was a very solid re-start for the franchise, but I do hope TJA goes into a different direction, and isn't just merely a retread of Empire (please). The new trilogy needs to stand out for the original too after all.
  8. Star Wars: Episode IX (JJ Abrams 2019)

    I certainly don't go to Star Wars for the acting. I go there for the entertainment, spectacle, story, effects, and the usually great music.
  9. Right now, who are your Top 5 film composers?

    I will I say I did like how open and honest Horner was about current film-scoring in any interview I read of him a few years back.
  10. Right now, who are your Top 5 film composers?

    Horner came off as "full of it" in all of the interviews I read of him in the past. Doesn't make me think less of his melodic skills though. Plenty of talented people have huge egos, some are just making it seem less apparent then others.
  11. Right now, who are your Top 5 film composers?

    Horner said that Yared didn't know how to score "big movies", and insulted him throughout the interview, saying his Troy score was "bad". Horner had a pretty huge ego, as you can imagine.
  12. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool - Pretty good, with some decent direction and a terrific performance from Bening as Gloria Grahame. I just wish I could have watched it when my foot wasn't swollen, and I wasn't limping. Maybe I would have enjoyed it even more. As it stands, it's pretty good, if a bit melodramatic for my tastes. I did like the fade-in / fade-out sequences quite a bit as well. - 7.5 / 10

    I'm really interested in Hurwitz score to Chazelle's The First Man. It'll give him opportunity to work on a non based music film, and do something different. I'd also like to see him branch-out and work with different directors. Despite his success, is he just not getting many offers? That was about a drummer, so technically it could still be a considered a film about music. It's just not a "musical" per-say.
  14. M. Night Shyamalan announces Unbreakable sequel

    Yes, they didn't vary it at all. It was basically tracked into the film. JNH was even given a credit during the end titles.
  15. M. Night Shyamalan announces Unbreakable sequel

    True, but that was just re-using one of his themes. I worry that JNH might not even be approached. I'd really like to see Howard return, of course, especially to build on his music from Unbreakable, which is one of my favorite of his scores. We've got several months to go though, thankfully.
