  1. Here's to 2020!
  2. I enjoy the Amistad score, and listened to it this year for the first time in a very long time. Haven't seen the movie in more than 15 years, but I recall the main set piece for "Dry Your Tears, Afrika" accompanying a liberation scene that just didn't fit together. I remember the scene itself being too bombastic for the material.
  3. Still waiting for Slatkin to get his ass in gear and continue the series with Detroit.
  4. War Horse for score, Tintin for movie. Not exactly easily.
  5. Don't recall Book Thief ever being popular around here. People seem to at least enjoy BFG's primary theme and enough of the score to give it a passing grade, even though the score on album is somewhat directionless.
  6. With all due respect to the piece from Lincoln, it is in no position to go up against Born on the Forth of July.
  7. Pretty good movie with some very well scripted scenes, which is not surprising with Sorkin. Great acting, loved Hoffman in it.
  8. Sully A competently made film that has good acting by its two leads and a functional script. That about sums up what is a great story but not necessarily a great movie. Good, certainly, just not enough there to elevate it.
  9. Jurassic Park all the way in both, although TLW score is also a grand musical statement.
  10. I love his music, I do, I'm an Antonin Dvorak fan. I celebrate the guy's entire catalogue.
  11. That version of the BWV140 was my favorite until Gardiner outdid himself with the version from his year long pilgrimage.
  12. Well, I didn't start with Stranger Things, I've been a Netflix subscriber for like 7 years. It's just the last of their original programing that I've seen.
  13. For the sheer fact that he did the prequels, fans were expecting him to do TFA simply because it's a new Star Wars film, regardless of the fact that it didn't fit the mold for those types of reviews. And that's why TFA itself wasn't even the focus of the review, it just didn't lend itself to the type of harsh criticism that could fulfill the requirements of the previous treatments in the series. It was just an excuse to poke the various branches of the franchise and its fan base.
  14. Probably did it more out of obligation than anything.
