  1. I've been listening to both Goldsmith's and Silvestri's Mummy scores non stop over the past few days. Wow, they are so good! So much character and enthusiasm. I listened to Tyler's score today and it is so boring in comparison. To be fair, it has that big orchestra and choir sound and it is bombastic but pretty simplistic and anonymous. It might grow on me, but I'd rather just listen to Goldsmith and Silvestri again because I know I can't go wrong. I was expecting TMNT with an Egyptian flair. Sadly I'm disappointed. And Wonder Woman's WW1's setting had a great opportunity for a old fashioned orchestral adventure score but we unfortunately got a score that was even more boring and was a complete non-entity within the film except for that now famous electric cello inserted at a few key moments. Such a disappointment from the summer so far. I hope Giachinno, Desplat and Zimmer will rescue it later.
  2. Episode 3x02 has some amazingly directed scenes.
  3. I'm really surprised Getting Out The Vote wasn't on vol 3. I thought it was a sure thing.
  4. The full adult choir version of Dry Your Tears Afrika sounds absolutely stunning!!
  5. His turtleneck unboxing videos are legendary!
  6. Conceptually, Augie's Municipal Band is excellent. Disguising the emperor's theme in a major-key brassy fanfare to denote Palpy's secret success is genius. Sadly the children's choir "ya-ya" nonsense and strange electronics completely overshadow the merits of that concept. Probably the only real blip in an otherwise outstanding score. If it was a traditionally orchestrated fanfare like The Flag Parade, I think it would be one of the best.
  7. Wow, Dry Your Tears, Africa sounds absolutely immense!
  8. Imagine the shit storm here if this mistake happened to John Williams and his Oscar taken off him mid-speach and given to some sound design score!
  9. The whole movie is pointless, but at least we'll get Menkin working with these themes again, and a much more generous OST than the original. This alone makes the whole thing worthwhile. Still annoyed they haven't released an expansion of the original score yet.
  10. Maybe we'll get all three within the next few years!
  11. Imagine if you were in the audience waiting for the concert to start and suddenly JW sits down beside you.
  12. Question for those who were at last year's Film Night - how does the split between JW and Lockhart work? Does Lockhart conduct the first half and JW the second half? If so, do we not see JW at all until the second half?
  13. Weekday hotel rooms might be cheaper too
