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

    I'm surprised it's not on blu-ray already. It seems like one of those films that would look great in high def.
  2. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    My review of The Post - https://dailyuv.com/feed/939346?location=norwich-vt&radius=myStuff
  3. I'm not 100% positive, but I'm pretty sure Arnold had no choice in the matter of him scoring the last two Bond films. I'm sure he would jump at the opportunity to do another Bond film. Based off everything I know / read of him, he's seems very enthusiastic about working on the franchise again anyway. It's just a matter of getting a call from EON.
  4. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Panic Room - Pretty tense thriller with some good performances. Probably Fincher's worse, sans Alien3 of course, but I enjoyed it. - 7 / 10
  5. What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Phantom Thread - Greenwood
  6. The Post (2017) FILM Discussion

    Yeah it's a great film. The ending almost me threw me for a loop, it felt like something out of a "planned sequel" (The Spielberg historical drama cinematic universe here we come), even with the watergate set-up, but I eventually got used to it, and in fact I kinda like it now. As usual, Streep killed it in her big scene too. It's quite U.S. centric, in terms of themes and stories, so I'm not sure non U.S. viewers would enjoy it as much, but I think it's handled very well regardless, and it's straightforward, so I don't think it would be that hard for anyone to follow. One of the year's best for sure, and it's been a strong year for films in general.
  7. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    The Circle - Gets kinda interesting near the end, but for the most part it's a bit of a bore. Also it's not as clever as thinks it is. - 4.5 / 10
  8. THE POST - SCORE Thread

    Superb film, solid score. Sparse, but it worked wonderfully in the film, especially during the climax and the presses roll. Love the use of the horn, and the music constantly rising, it was so great.
  9. He was "lucky" enough to have the worst film parents ever.
  10. Williams confirms EPISODE IX !!

    Constant overusing of the danger motif?
  11. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    Saw The Post. Great film, well-acted, and very relevant too. Williams's score was sparse especially for a Spielberg film, but its use in the climax was fantastic. - 8.5 / 10 My 1:40 showing sold out though, and it was surprisingly a mix of older people, and some younger ones too. I don't even think my The Last Jedi showing had as many people in it as my Post screening did. Nuts!
  12. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    My review of this post - Could stand to lose at least 20 words. Not enough "pows" either - 5 / 10. Also my review of Molly's Game (I type these reviews for a living) https://dailyuv.com/feed/939089?location=norwich-vt
  13. Oh it's Powell that makes the first two KFP's work so well, but I included it because Zimmer was involved, and because by default most Zimmer scores are technically collaborations. Plus it's damn good music anyway.
  14. 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards

    Desplat won the award fair and square. The Shape of Water's music is among the year's best too.
  15. The Lion King The Prince of Egypt The Davinchi Code / Angels & Demons Gladiator Interstellar Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End Kung Fu Panda 1 / 2 / 3 The Little Prince The Last Samurai Frost / Nixon HM to Frost / Nixon, Hannibal, The Holiday and The Lone Ranger
  16. Oh yeah, my bad. I always assumed that every century started with the 000, but oh well.
  17. It was first released on May 1, 2000. It's counted as a 2000 film everywhere. Those "calendars" aren't very accurate.
  18. It was released in 2000. It counts.
  19. Williams confirms EPISODE IX !!

    I don't think we needed any conformation but nice to know. This will probably be last his SW film too. Hope he goes out with a "bang". Great article too. Williams is always such a delight.
  20. Well it is a lot of modern Hollywood in a nutshell. "Don't worry, will make it more audience friendly for the masses next time!" Proceeds to screw things up again.
  21. America

    Thankfully Oprah has no interest in running, but hey the news needs to get ratings somehow, so she gives a great speech, now she's gotta run for president, because.
