  1. 'Jurassic Park,' 'The Shining,' 'Brokeback Mountain', and 'Rebecca' Enter the National Film Registry, Deeming them Culturally, Historically or Aesthetically Significant.
  2. Thought this would make for a fun discussion, so here goes. What are some movie antagonists from this century that you believe will be remembered as some of cinema's most memorable, iconic villains years from now? Here's my top three. Anton Chigurh: No Country for Old Men (2007) Daniel Plainview: There Will Be Blood (2007) Gollum: The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-2003)
  3. I recently purchased my first Criterion Collection title (The Dr. Strangelove Blu-ray digipak). Awesome transfer, and the cover and supplemental material are great as well. Any recommendations for the best first titles a new collector should pick up? Your personal favorites?
  4. This morning I listened to a 2014 recording by the BBC Concert Orchestra on Spotify. I don't think it correspond to a physical album. The playing is good, but it contains a way too much echo for me, but the thing is they recorded the End Titles from The Empire Strikes Back. Well, I think it's worth of mention. Except the Gerhardt version, I don't remember any other re-recording of this piece. Please feel free to share your own discoveries!
  5. Seeing as there has not been an official thread created for this film yet, I thought I'd be the one to do the honors. "The Incredibles 2 Teaser Trailer to Premiere With Coco"

    Jaws vs. Jurassic Park

    Which Spielberg monster movie (and respective score) do you prefer; Jaws or Jurassic Park? On a technical level, Jurassic Park handily beats the somewhat dated effects in Jaws, but so great is the power of the storytelling in Jaws that I personally find the later to be much more compelling. The suspense is crafted brilliantly. Every line of dialogue is pure gold. The characters are likable and well-written. The film has easily one of the greatest monologues in cinema history (Quint's story of the U.S.S Indianapolis). It succeeds not only as an entertaining popcorn flick, but also as a rich human drama and a chilling mortality tale. There's no doubt in my mind that Jaws is the superior film, by far. Williams' score for Jurassic Park is truly great and memorable, but Jaws just barely edges it out, in my opinion.

    JohnSolo: Introduction

    Hey, fellow John Williams fans, this is John. I came across this site a few days ago, checked it out for a while, and I thought I should join. I'm a pretty big film score geek, as most of you probably are. Favorite composers are John Williams, Howard Shore, Hans Zimmer, and Michael Giacchino. I also enjoy watching movies (fav movie series are Star Wars and LOTR), hanging out with my friends and youth group, going to karate lessons, and just enjoying life in general. I'm also a proud non-Trekkie, volunteer firefighter, and hunter, among other things. Well, that's my introduction. See you guys around! You can find me on Instagram @johnlong1226.
  8. So...I've never been a great fan of Jerry Goldsmith, but I think it's more out of a lack of familiarity than any perceived defect in his work. I'm also interested in experiencing for myself how his technique and approach differs from Williams. I think my lack of familiarity probably stems from the fact that he scored so many bad movies, or at least has that stigma. So I want to know--what are some of the best films that he worked on? Or films that would have been mediocre without his score? For a frame of reference, I've seen Patton and Planet of the Apes and liked them both (films and scores).

    My film score blog

    For the past few months, I've been writing and managing my own personal blog about film music, called THE HOLLYWOOD SOUND. I started it back in July, and I've added to it since then. As a result of this blog, I've been writing CD reviews for FSM Online as well. I just wanted to let you all know about it, and to invite you all to read it: http://thehollywoodsound.blogspot.com Thanks everyone.
