In Topic: The Official Chris Tilton Thread

Has anyone else had a chance to listen to Assassin's Creed Unity yet? What did you think?

I love it! To me it sounds like a cousin to Chris's Fringe scores, which is certainly a good thing in my book!

Are there any themes that are carried over from previous games? I thought Chris had said he was reusing another composer's theme, but I'm not familiar with the music from the other games.

In Topic: Pixar announces Toy Story 4 coming 2017

3 took things way too dark for my liking. But there's too much money left on the table for them not to make 4. Maybe then they'll follow the All Holy Marvel Formula and do solo films for each character. Green Army Men in a Saving Private Ryan send off.


That's more or less what they have been doing (successfully, in my opinion) with the shorts, all set after Toy Story 3.

Hawaiian Vacation focused on Barbie and Ken.
Small Fry focused on Buzz.
Partysaurus Rex focused on Rex.
Toy Story of Terror! focused on Jessie.
Toy Story That Time Forgot will focus on Trixie.

I like what they have done with the shorts, but I don't think they would do that with a feature film, nor should they.

In Topic: Star Wars "Rebels" - Kevin Kiner Returns!

Does anyone think that Zeb's theme (or what I think is his theme) sounds a little like "The Basket Game"? It can be heard in the cue from "Droids in Distress" found here and in the "Entanglement" short starting at 0:49.

It's definitely less frequent now than in the first few episodes, but still in every episode.  A recent episode about a TIE Fighter chase resolved with a quote of some of the non-thematic TPM Tatooine music, weirdly (it worked well as score for the particular moment, but as a quote/reference to a previous score it wasn't really meaningful).
 
The fact that Disney is bothering with a TCW score gives me hope that they will release Rebels scores - digital or disc, I'd just be happy to get them.


Yeah, I've noticed that, too. I don't mind quoting, but only if it's relevant to the scene it accompanies. If Kanan or Ezra uses the Force, then I think the Force theme is fine. If Wookiees hug, I don't think Leia's theme really works...

I think the fact that someone even includes a cue on the Star Wars website after an episode airs is a sign that someone, somewhere, is thinking about the score. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a release once the season ends!

starwars.com also releases a cue from each episode of Rebels. 

 

I meant to mention those Rebels cues here sooner. I think they are pretty good, but they do quote Williams more than I think they should. Hopefully that trend will wear off as the series continues...
