  1. So today I decided to do something I’ve never done. I put my Home Alone 25th Aniversary CD in my Xbox One and noticed the music App grove recognized the artist I’m guess and cycles through these two photos. Anybody know now why this is? It can’t because the CD is available for digital purchase...
  2. I was thinking about the famous "I'm flying" scene from Titanic and, in particular, the precise moment where the music reaches its emotional climax. On paper, you might expect the score to swell at the moment Jack and Rose kiss, but it actually reaches its emotional peak a few seconds later when Rose reaches up her hand to hold Jack's head closer. The moment becomes a lot more sensual and somehow more romantic as a result. I realise this is just intelligent, intuitive film scoring, but the timing of these things always fascinates me. (2:09) Another example off the top of my head is the final scene in Home Alone when Kevin and Old Man Marley share their moment through the window. One could score it so the music swells when Marley raises his hand in greeting, but Williams holds it for that little moment longer until Kevin returns the gesture, when both characters have completed their arcs with regards to each other. This video below actually has the alternate “O Holy Night” version of the cue too, and you can see the emotional journey is exactly the same in both pieces of music. (00:47) I’m curious to know if you can think of any other examples like this. Moments where the music could reach an emotional peak at one moment, but actually climaxes at another for a stronger emotional impact.
  3. I have decided to buy some more LLL JW releases along with the upcoming expanded E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. I am considering: Home Alone (25th anniversary), Home Alone 2, The Fury, Rosewood, Empire of the Sun, A.I. Artificial Intelligence and The John Williams Jurassic Park Collection. However, it's quiet a sum, so I would like to be sure that I am getting my money's worth. Quality of the sound is very important, but I don't expect that's an issue. Also the presentation of the set and the liner notes. Another very important thing is, how definitive the release is. I wouldn't want to spend money on something just so it gets a better release few months later. Which titles should I choose? Are they all definitive?
