  1. I think the variance and variety of SW, TPM and TFA is what I really look for in a SW score, after 5 years of being a Jwfan. 😊 Back in 2014, when I first saw Star Wars, I never would’ve thought that I’d be able to hear Rey’s Theme in 2015. I didn’t even know the prequels existed. My heart goes to ROTJ because of Luke and Leia, but my brain enjoys SW, TPM and TFA the most. These 3 scores set up vastly different musical worlds for their sequels. They are also great lessons on composition and musical storytelling. TLJ, was a disappointment for me because it’s very self-aware and self-referential. There’s a lot of fourth-wall-breaking and gotcha moments going on in TLJ. I don’t think those ha-ha moments work very well with the seriousness and earnestness of those quotes of Leia’s Theme and Yoda’s Theme. But if it’s meant to be deconstructive, to be like Kylo Ren, I’d say TLJ as a musical work is a much more enjoyable and friendly kind of deconstruction than most of “modern” and “contemporary” music. I’m just glad the soundtrack is selling and SW is still a huge pop culture thing. TLJ may not follow previous lines of thoughts. It falls into the wild-card category of deconstructive music. It’s commercial. It’s a Disney soundtrack. It’s a pop culture thing. Still, if I have to choose between TLJ and every single piece of music that is meant to be deconstructive, I’d pick TLJ. TLJ may be JW’s eighth/ninth best SW score, but it still has heart.

  5. I just hope there won’t be a Reylo theme... JJ, don’t give in.
  6. 15: The Dark Knight Rises Let the past die, kill it if you have to. 18: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy It is the only way to become what you were meant to be.
  7. Oh, I think I know what theme was that. I don’t want to spoil anything. That particular theme seems to be a variation of the Avengers main theme. It’s definitely intensional.
  8. Was that really Nick Fury’s theme though, given the fact that he spent most of his time on the
  9. Sorry, turns out the melody debuted in Homecoming. The new theme from Far From Home should be the Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) Theme. Sorry! 😖
  10. Just saw the movie, I like the new Spider-Man theme from Homecoming. It’s very simple and reminiscent of the Avengers Theme and Rey’s Theme. The movie feels lighter than the last one: Soundtrack: 3.5/5 Film: Better Than TLJ/5 For a moment I thought Peter was going to say sth like “Use the Force.” I’m pretty sure TROS will be the only 5/5 score of 2019 for me. WTF?😉
