Yes, merge please. And while you're at it: is it too early to create a Lincoln subforum...? ;)

I voted for merge. Going back and forth between the main and subforum has been a bit arduous (one extra click on the mouse). ;)

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

MERGE!

Among all the things I have done in my short and pitiful life, becoming an inside joke on JWFAN is the one I'm the least proud of.


The additional passage was interesting but not really something I would consider absolutely essential.

I voted for marged, too. We do not need it no longer.
„With his strong classical background and his creative musical sense, John Williams has written majestic and wonderfully thematic scores for STAR WARS and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. Through his music he has provided the most emotional heart of the films. I feel these score are among the best ever done and are equal to many of the classical pieces we have come to love.”

I want it merged to. And that's because I tend to forget there is a sub-forum.

Don't merge. I don't give a fuck about Tintin or War Horse. Having a subforum helps keeping that crap away from the General Discussion board.
Merge them, and it will be chaos. The plague will spread. Rivers of blood will flood the lands. Women will give birth to demons with wings and tentacles. And Cosman will become a Moderator.
Don't merge.

The sad truth is that Tintin and War Horse didn't generate NEARLY the amount of posts and threads that Indy IV did. This place was a MAD HOUSE then!

I don't know what the difference is - both were the first Williams score in 3 years, both were action/adventure scores. I guess one was the 4th entry in a beloved franchise and a huge summer blockbuster, the other was 2 winter films that were first entries, even though one was an adaptation of a beloved franchise. I dunno.

Maybe it's that some of the big posters from back then don't post as much any more? I dunno.

The sub forum seemed pretty packed the couple of times I went in there.
"Close Encounters to me is as good a piece of concert music as the 20th century has produced. Everybody fixates on... the Superman fanfare, or Star Wars - Main Theme, or the Raiders March. It's what happens after that, it's not the big popular hook where you go: 'My God John Williams is a genius.' Y'know it's the stuff which is maybe less hooky and less hummable, but is great art." - Hans Zimmer

The movie releases were all over the place this time. I know I'm still avoiding War Horse film, as well as most score, threads because the film isn't out yet here.

That is quite funny when thinking how much better films both Tintin and War Horse are. Also music wise.

Answer to the topic: merge.
Even I have seen War Horse, here in the far side of the world.

The whole sub forum idea was a farce anyway!

Hey look, new Williams scores are being released, let's NOT allow discussion about it on the main forum!

Worst decision ever! (apart from Jack Chapple)

I think it's also because WH and Tintin were both released at separate times in the US and Europe, the source of most of our posters. With KotCS I believe it all hit at once, and one person's enthusiasm nourished another's. It's less fun to discuss a movie/score when half the people are avoiding spoiler-filled threads like the plague, and by the time the other half sees the movie the first half isn't as excited to discuss it.

And it's generally more fun to discuss bad movies than good ones.
