  2. That also lines up a bit with the story Williams recalls from working on the film. Evidently, when he watched the first cut, he told Lucas that he was going to need a much worse composer than him for the job.

  4. Oh wow, they're already recording the score! Guess that's why Williams didn't score it, Spielberg must want both his films wrapped before Christmas (maybe barring VFX revisions for RPO). Nice of Williams to drop by the sessions though, just to add another layer of stress to Silvestri's job. Nice of Silvestri to address comments on his social media too: rojas_gustyyFirst time with spielberg as director how would have been the experience? alan.silvestri_music@rojas_gustyy amazing

  8. Absolutely, it's probably the strongest stretch of music in the film. It's just that instantly recognizable, effortless John Williams in Star Wars mode writing we all know and love. Not one moment under or overscored; just a superb selection of music right to the end of the credits. Very glad Williams gave us the entirety of the finale unedited on the OST (unlike all the terrible edits in the glorious ROTS finale).

  10. Love seeing that track get some love. This & the one immediately after (Farewell & the Trip) are my favorites on the entire TFA soundtrack. The movie goes thru a whole series of emotional beats in rapid succession during those tracks, and the music just flows effortlessly in support of each one. JW at his most masterful, IMO.

  12. Bes, you're more JWfan Select. Honestly, though, top marks for trying to watch that film. It's not an easy experience, nor is listening to the OST. I saw my doctor, last week. He said "You've got six months to live". I said "I want a second opinion". He said " O.k., you're also ugly".

  19. Does Incident at Islar Nublar score a chase scene? I thought it scores the opening raptor scene and then when Ellie and Muldoon search around the T-Rex paddock before the actual T-Rex chase scene.

  20. Well remember it was recorded long, long before Williams' official "Marion's Theme" arrangement from 2008 so I assume they just lopped off the crate from "Marion's Theme/The Crate." I don't have that album so I am just assuming.

  29. Can't believe I agree more with Junkie XL than Elfman. But I do. "It’s a massive undertaking. And I can’t say anything about Justice League specifically, but I’ll tell you this, and this was exactly the same experience that Hans and I had when we did work together on Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: It’s like when you see a movie like that, these iconic superhero movies, some of them have a 60 to 80 year legacy, multiple composers had a go at their themes, multiple filmmakers did their version of these characters—it’s very scary. You watch a movie and it’s like, “Holy shit, now I have to come up with something.” You’ve got sweaty hands and you’re nervous, and you talk about it over and over again—and I have exactly that relationship with Zack Snyder—and then Zack said, ”There’s only one thing you can do, and that is embrace this character as if it’s your own, keep it close to your musical soul, and just do whatever you feel is the right thing to do for this character.” That’s the only thing we can do. That’s what all these great directors did back in the day, and that’s what all these great composers did back in the day. It makes no sense for me to do extensive quoting of Hans’ score of the really amazing Batmans. It makes no sense for me to quote Superman from John Williams. Because all fantastic composers, they all did the same thing, they did something that was close to their heart, and I have to do exactly the same thing on this movie. You know this is Movie Number 4 that I’m doing with Zack, so you build a friendship and it’s built on trust and loyalty. You know how to challenge each other, you know what to expect on the other side, and it’s this really open, amazing dialogue about where to take this franchise." -Junkie XL on doing Justice League. The only problem is, when Junkie XL tries to do his own shit, it is usually garbage.

  44. ROTS is the everything-plus-the-kitchen-sink score of the series. Heaps of fun and easily the most diverse collection of music in a single score in the SW series. There's extended percussive-based action, laments, epic choral elegies, an adagio, weird synth experimentation, plus all the trademark brassy fanfares and action that Williams writes in his sleep. I think it's part of the reason people were so taken aback by JW's TFA, which couldn't be further from ROTS if he tried (a score which showed the musical restraint of a David Zucker comedy, but reveled in it).

  45. Here's my unpopular opinion: Williams is in a league entirely of his own among modern media composers. There's simply no one alive this side of the world of concert music who puts out more consistently stellar work. And I think the real reason for this, is that Williams simply gives much more thought and effort to his scores than most of his colleagues, probably more than people realize. I've heard lazy, phoned-in offerings from many composers. Never from Williams. His work-ethic would make Haydn nod in recognition.
