  1. I read somewhere above that JW has become too sophisticated. I agree but, I don't think JW is the one overall at fault in this area. Lucas and Spielberg and many others of the 70's-80's era that we all love did their best work before THEY became sophisticated. Example: Compare GF1 and GF2 to GF3/ EP IV, V, VI to I, II, III. Lucas and Coppola both displayed their own sophistication by going from simple (Blue collar) films to sophisticated (Aristocratic) films. Plus, these two are buddies! GF 1 and 2 were about NYC Mafia families, GF3 - the Vatican, Stocks and International corruption. IV, V, VI = Rebels, smugglers, pirates and farmboys as the focus, I, II, III = Senators, Chancellors and elitist organizations. Art reflects life people! I mean really, imagine JW scoring/working with Lucas, Spielberg NOW, given their success and experience. It's a completely different collaboration with a group of people who are more seasoned and experienced. It's like that line in Rocky III " The worst thing happened to you - you got civilized". But, I think JW still got it, and blows all others away. For example, I loved Ottman's SR, but still not in character/tone with JW's Superman. I also LOVED AOTC, even more than ROTS, especially Across the Stars and the whole return to Tatooine/Tuskin Camp material. I just think editing (B. Burt) got in the way of the score's presentation in the film and the soundtracks of both AOTC and ROTS lacked too much and needed more presentation on the CD. A big also is the fact that the movie industry overall today does not reflect that of the "golden era" we all know of. Sadly, the audience of mainstream movies for the most part does not desire to recieve film scores the way our generation did, their exposure to music is actually an exposure to more, faster media - very differnet from our own experince as youngsters. Case in point, I took a youth ministry class over the summer and it was pointed out by the professor that the USA's biggest export is media, especially geared towards the tween/teen/young adult range, the USA dictates pop culture. It's a huge industry which spends Millions in research alone to attract people to a product faster and easier. So, JW/Filmaker's sophistication + media today overshadows the product/experience we received - it's not all JW being past his prime. Not even close. My one hope is to someday see him conduct live, this and seeing the "whole story" (Ep.I - VI) would make for me to die content. One down, one to go.
  2. I'm very late to this conversation, but I updated my Traking lists with haves and wants and could use some help in aquiring the missing cues to the IJ Soundtracks. If anyone can help please PM and I will offer any help in return. The Concord set is great by the way. - Got it yesterday. I plan to merge my tracks with creative wave studio. I worked out well for my SW E1 UE Re-edits.

  4. Hi! I haven't posted here in a while, but I have a question regarding the best version of the Original Star Wars Trilogy Complete Soundtracks. I have the following versions, which set is the best for SOUND QUALITY? The Large Trilogy Box set from the mid 90's with the extra disc of alternate cues, etc. The 1997 SE set with the gold/silver/bronse 20th anniv. logos for each film. The 2004 re-release with the silver vader box to go with the DVD Trilogy release. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  5. News on the release of the whole SW saga's complete scores is the one piece of info I wanted to hear from the Star Wars Celebration IV convention in LA last weekend. Does anyone have any news on this! It would be greatly appreciated!
