  1. What kind of JWfan are you?
  2. Both cues serve as main themes to easily the two most influential and popular fantasy series of all time; The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, respectively. Which musical theme do you prefer, "The History of the One Ring" or "Hedwig's Theme"?
  3. Both trilogies serve as prequels to a far greater trilogy. Both have had more of a mixed reaction to their respective fanbases. And now it is up to you to decide; which trilogy is better, the Hobbit trilogy or the Star Wars prequel trilogy? Personally, my vote goes to the Hobbit trilogy. Despite the excessive CGI and visual effects, as well as the additional storylines and subplots, at least it feels as though it is from the same vein of movies as the LOTR trilogy. On the other hand, the Star Wars prequel trilogy completely sidelined the visual style and charm of the OT, resulting in a set of movies that have neither the humor, nostalgia, or feel of the original classic films. The Hobbit trilogy also has far superior acting. Ultimately, the decision is up to you. Please vote in the poll above!
  4. Which film and score is your favorite from the Jurassic Park franchise?
  5. So yeah, this is a topic I see debated occasionally on the forums, so I thought this could be a formal place to do so and share your opinion. I personally love the music for both series. John Williams' Star Wars scores are legitimate classics in the world of film scores, and are widely considered to be the gold standard for sci-fi/adventure soundtracks. On the other hand, Howard Shore's darker LOTR scores (the scores for the Hobbit trilogy included) are incredible as well, full of complex themes and motifs and are as influential to the fantasy genre as are Williams' Star Wars soundtracks to the sci-fi genre. Feel free to share your thoughts below, and please participate in the poll above!
  6. I'm talking about in comparison to other film composers, not comparing him against long-dead classical music composers. For me, he is and has always been my favorite composer, no question.
