  2. It's been 76 hours since @Disco Stu made his last post and deleted his avatar. How much longer must we suffer?
  3. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    I have no idea what it is then. It's unusual for them to not tell us what title will be on sale any amount of time less than 7 days beforehand (other than Black Friday). So maybe it's something special. Or not. Who knows lol
  4. No love for The Rock, Crimson Tide, or Drop Zone?

  6. I couldn't possibly hum his theme for you right now. It went in one ear and out the other on every listen leaving no impression.
  7. Just the films, or the scores too? Cause the movies are basically just harmless summer popcorn fun, but the scores are great!
  8. Well, Jurassic World has the problem of the main themes not being that great. I love the Hoskins theme, and the theme for Owen's raptor squad, and the little silly theme for Owen and Claire. But the main theme is nothing special, neither is the family theme. They get the job done, but don't elicit any kind of excitement or interest in me... they are just kind of there. Contrast that to Star Trek Beyond, which has the great main theme, Spock theme, and Enterprise theme PLUS the AMAZING brand new Five Year Mission / Yorktown theme AND the FANTASTIC Franklin theme (used to great effect in Crash Decisions).. the Jaylay and Krall themes are just icing on the cake on of of all that. Then Spider-man Homecoming has a strong main theme with three sections that all get explored the entire score, especially in the action material, a Vulture theme that may be simple and derivative of his prirt villain themes but is EXTREMELY effective in the movie doesn't outstay its welcome on album, a nice little love them, and then a bunch of various montage and sneaking around music that really fleshes out the whole score and makes an extremely cohesive and satisfying whole. But then Doctor Strange and Rogue One and just blah. Very forgettable themes and action material. I think he was just burned out. I liked Book of Henry and War for the POTA for what they are, and I need to give Coco another listen. I'm really expecting to like Incredibles 2 and Jurassic World 2 a lot!

  11. Yes, I of course understood what you meant, but I still don't see what Williams has to do with liking the score or not. For one, I didn't even say anything bad about Jurassic World in the post of mine you quoted, just that the OST album wasn't assembled well from all the recorded material. So why bring up Williams, or Rogue One, at all? Can't we rate Jurassic World on its own merits?
  12. Thanks for that thematic breakdown, @Disco Stu. I will rexamine the score with your theme analysis in mind!
  13. I don't see what Williams has to do with anything. Jurassic World just isnt as good of a score as Tomorrowland or inside Out from the same year, or as good as Spider-man or Star Trek 3 in terms of summer popcorn fair in his recent ouvre.

  15. Ferdinand is great! There's even more music available on the FYC album, too! Welcome back Stu!
  16. The reboot train continues.... Fox is officially considering an X-Files revival of some sort
  17. The X-Files 11x10 My Struggle IV Welp, that mostly sucked. Not really a fan of seeing Mulder and Scully's kid kill a bunch of people, or hte X-Files being shut down yet again (yawn). Sure there was a bunch of character deaths (Reyes I guess and seemingly Cigarette Smoking Man) but on this show anyone can come back so it's not like it really matters. The ending with Scully being pregnant and Mulder and Scully seemingly finally getting together for real was nice, but I mean, it seems like they should have been together already, and every new movie or season flip flops on if they are together or not, blah blah blah Disappointing end to a disppointing resurrection. Why did they do nothing this year with those 2 younger agents they introduced last year? The world needs more Lauren Ambrose!
