    The Quick Question Thread

    That was one of them. Plot leak. Prowse's voice snubbed. Involvement in some interesting docs George didn't like.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    All of which I've listened to in the past month. Excellent! I'll have to try some of those John Scott scores though.

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

    Right. The material does need to be adapted, but some recent decisions and omissions have been interesting talking points, namely the flag controversy with First Man. Regarding that, the film itself was not about the moon as much as it was about the man, therefore it would have been in a way out of place. The film does not neglect the fact that it was a huge moment for the world, primarily for America in their space exploration back-and-forth with the Russians. I feel that the negative backlash is driven by misguided movie goers who came in with their own idea of what the film would be like, expecting it to focus on the historical points which they found most important. That was not the case and it was unfortunate to see that so many were unhappy with it. It was a great film. Knocked my socks off.

    Who should Score Peter Jackson's Mortal Engines?

    It sickened me a bit when I saw: "From the creators of The Lord of the Rings". We all know what happened since then (ahem-The Hobbit) and Jackson is simply not going to be able to pull off another stunt as impressive as TLOTR.

    In that being the case, the entire cinematic concept of the historical drama is something to be considered. Every one of these recounts in one way or another is going to have to be embellished or reconsidered in order to create the most effective film as possible, some more than others. Unfortunately, history does not always play out in a way that it can be cut and pasted onto the big screen, but the creative minds of the production staff attempt to arrange a film that acknowledges and incorporates pivotal historical accuracies around a looser and flexible plot that serves as a mechanism for allowing that which we know to be true to be presented amongst supporting falsehoods or half-truths, in a sense, that move the story along and hold the equilibrium between fact and fiction.

    Anyone else like pickles?

    Charming, to the last. Your pitiful insults are like a summer's breeze.

    It's historical inaccuracies do not prevent it from being a good film. They simply disillusion the informed viewer from fully appreciating it.
