    War of the Worlds scores!

    This is awesome. Thank you for putting these together. I’ve always thought WotW was an under appreciated Williams effort. It’s actually the score that got me into his work

    I might agree with that interpretation if it wasn't for such a huge franchise, owned by Disney. Surely, it would have been a small expense in the scheme of things.

    I’m still salty they didn’t put Williams’ piece in the credits. WTF?
  4. I just find it to be more consistently interesting, and maybe that it is because I appreciate Willians mixing his old and new styles. I also think The Jungle Chase is some of Williams’ best action material period so that helps in giving it the edge
  5. I like KotCS better than Last Crusade ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    I'll never forget the image/sound combo of Eric Bana banging his wife, his ridiculously long and sweaty hair whipping perspiration in all directions, as Lisbeth Scott screams at the audience. Beautiful 👴

    Empire of the Sun is one of few Williams scores I just do not connect with. The main theme is certainly top tier, but the score on the whole is too disconnected
  8. The Mission has some of the greatest film music ever written in it, but it is not one of the greatest scores ever written. Too much insufferable dissonance in its later sections. I wish I could love it as much as it is acclaimed.
  9. Is Morricone known to have taken drugs?
  10. The Russia House and Gremlins 2 are some of my favorites and I’ve never seen those films. So was The Greatest Miracle, which I liked much less after seeing the film. Same with The Last Airbender.
  11. Probably about half of all the scores I listen to, I have not seen the film.
  12. I've actually enjoyed the main Baby theme more than the action material. It's so quirky and distinct. "Baby's Alive" is a beautiful piece of music, and I love the sentimental iterations Goldsmith puts the Baby theme through.
  13. I doubt Clemensen actually knew that was what Horner intended. I think he just meant more in a general sense that it was not the carved up version of the score as it appears in the film and is mostly representative of Horner’s final intentions, which goes without saying

    Yes! I was thinking this section sounded extremely like Williams. I suppose it quotes the concert piece extensively, but it's different enough that I just figured it might be an alternate version Williams sketched out that was incorporated into the film. Or something along those lines.

    That must be common practice then as there are a good number of Zimmer albums where the track titles don’t correlate to the scenes the music scores at all.
