In Topic: What are your Top 10 film score action tracks NOT composed by JW?

03 August 2015 - 12:22 AM

Escape from Torture and Village Raid/Helicopter Fight are extraordinary Goldsmith action cues in a career filled with top notch action.

 

Futile Escape and Surprise Attack are classics too.

 

Golden Gate Fight / 007 Steals The Lektor / 007 Averts World War Three / Ski Chase / Necros Attacks / Hercules Takes Off are great John Barry action tracks for Bond.

 

African Rundown / Miami International / Bike Chase / White Knight / Come in 007, Your Time Is Up are great David Arnold action tracks for Bond


In Topic: Tanglewood Film Night Aug 22, 2015 [UPDATE: Williams cancels appearance]

Obviously it is early days, but we could be witnessing the end of live JW concerts. To be honest, if the only health issue affecting an 83 year old is a bad back, it means he is still in great shape for his age. I still believe that we are very lucky to have our favorite composer still producing scores well into his 80s.

 

Time will time, especially with the Philly concert and next year's Pops. In fact, those Boston Pops without a "Film Night with John Williams" would be a major end of an era :(

 

I am lucky enough to have seen him live four times (Tanglewood '05, New York '11, Boston '13, Boston '14)

 

Of course, I'm hoping for a complete recovery.

Trailers ruining surprises is nothing new

New trailer uses the On Her Majesty's Secret Service theme. I highly doubt it will be in Newman's score though.

I hope this ungodly combo of Newman and Mendes will finally leave Bond the fuck alone.


I agree. They are excellent spy movies but not good Bond movies.

Always loved the power and primal force of this cue. The theme that enters on the strings is a gem too. They really don't make action music like this anymore
