  1. See You Again already went past Gangnam Style last week http://variety.com/2017/digital/news/wiz-khalifa-see-you-again-youtube-chart-topper-gangnam-style-1202491770/
  2. Is there any evidence to suggest he repurposed any music he had written for Rogue One into this score?
  3. Can we go back to discussing the Rogue One score in this thread now?
  4. I'm sure there are multiple ways to interpret the movie of course, the most straightforward one is that the ending is reality and the first 3/4 is dream. To be more specific: In reality Naomi Watt's character from the end of the movie (Diane) is from Canada, comes to LA when her Aunt died and left her money, and met Camilla (Laura Harding's character) at an audition. They had a brief relationship, but it fell apart, and now Camilla's dating the director of the movie and also makes out with the Melissa George character. Diane hires a hitman to kill Camilla, then has a fever dream just before she kills herself, which is what we see visualized for the bulk of the movie. In the fever dream, Camilla survives the hit attempt, and Diane has turned herself into Betty, the stereotypical plucky wannabe star arriving in LA who finds Camilla, dubs her Rita, and saves her from all kinds of situations, etc. Various bits of reality sneak in, she reimagines Melissa George as someone else, imagines her Aunt's landlord as the director's mother, etc, they visit her real apartment with her own corpse in it, etc. As for what the monster behind the diner and the side-story with the hitman stuff is all about, its all just leftovers from when this was shot to be a TV pilot before the movie ending was later filmed. Drax, take your time to read this and then tell us what you think: http://www.salon.com/2001/10/24/mulholland_drive_analysis/
  5. Yara is great but woefully underused
  6. @thestat I'm not entirely sure what the goal of this thread was for you: You start by critiquing the recording techniques of the engineers who record his music, then praise a bunch of his work, without a clear discussion point you're trying to get others to elaborate on. It's no surprise this turned into a Giacchino bashing thread, so I'm going to go ahead and merge it into the existing main Giacchino thread. Now everyone, feel free to genuinely discuss recording techniques and/or his music here, let's not just emptily bash his stuff over and over again. There's nothing wrong with not liking his music whatsoever, but let's have an actual discussion about it and not just empty bashing. Thanks!
  7. Looks like the same thing we got on HBO Now after the episode ended. I liked that they showed Arya and The Hound with the villager clip, it had been years since I saw that and didn't really remember the specifics about the house in the new episode
  8. This thread has a lot of no avatar people in a row!
  9. Oh I think he's written great action cues throughout his whole career, but yea my favorite scores of his - LOST, Super 8, and Tomorrowland - aren't centered on them
  10. I get much more enjoyment out of Spider-man and Star Trek
  11. It's the other way around Drax, the first 3/4 of the film is her dream, the ending part is reality
  12. I listened to this score this morning, wanting to give it another chance. I had to pause it around the halfway point for lunch break. When I came back, I moved on to another score, couldn't even bring myself to finish it. It's just not my cup of tea
  13. Hey that's only an 80 minute drive from my house!
