    I really like Luke's Exile Theme now. When I first heard it I kept expecting to lead to something else - it seems a lot like a bridge section he might use in a concert arrangement. But I've been doing a bit of playing around with it on the piano and I keep coming back to it. The similarities with the opening 7-note figure of Rey's Theme are unmistakable; it's like he was foreshadowing this theme with her's and tapping into the mythology of the Jedi while doing so. I dig it.

    That's funny, because the English word Hull has the exact same meaning.

    I don't think so. I just think The Force Awakens is a better packaged movie: its much better paced (the major issue with The Last Jedi) and it has better production value. While its very linear, characters like Finn and Han don't feel shortchanged: the film manages to balance all three of them, which is more than I can say for The Last Jedi; Also, while Hux, Snoke and Phasma are empty shells in both, at least they aren't so over-the-top in The Force Awakens, so I would say the acting is better, too. Also, JJ's humor is much more organic (if far too abundant) to the story, and he doesn't feel like he's lacking restraint in the way Rian Johnson does: I know originally Abrams planned another subplot in the finale involving a chase over the snowy surface of Starkiller Base, but in the end he had the nous to cut it, which is more than can be said to a lot of stuff in The Last Jedi. I don't bring him up a lot, but Chris Stuckmann knows his cinema, and he does agree with me: Revenge of the Sith is far less well packaged than either of the two, but I just appreciate the audacity of Lucas to present a Star Wars film that is an outright tragedy. Its the only one that ends with the bad guys being triumphant, and for that to happen in the last film in a trilogy is very unusual

    Rest assured, their souls remained perfectly intact when they took their share of the money you earned, so you should keep your cap firmly on your head and tell them where to deposit the money that you're entitled to!

    Rambo III re-recording would make for a great combination with those discovered end titles of Rambo II. Just sayin'...

    The SPORTS Thread.

    Of course (it was the 2011-12 season). As amazing as that finish was however, I would argue that the greatest finish to a season - albeit in the days before the Premier League - was when Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-0 at Anfield in 1989 to pip them to the championship with almost the last kick of the season. What made it more memorable than the Man City title win was that the two teams with a chance of winning the title were playing each other in the very last game (I am sure that as a Gooner you know all this already, Richard). Arsenal had to win by two clear goals to snatch the title from Liverpool on goal difference. No team had beaten Liverpool by two clear goals at Anfield for three years...

    Really? Vader is the one who killed Luke’s father, was Obi Wan’s pupil and survives the Battle of Yavin. He was clearly meant for more than just being ‘the chief stormtrooper’.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Philosopher's Stone - Pure Williams magic all the way through, every second dripping with nostalgia and wonder. The Children's Suite would really deserve a proper release instead of the little bits on the OST, Diagon Alley is one of my new favourite JW pieces, and Harry's Wondrous World just makes so much sense and becomes so satisfying when topping it all off! Chamber of Secrets - Some of the verbatim repeats become really jarring, especially when repeated multiple times in the score, but a large percentage of the new material is bigger, darker, bolder, maybe even better than the first one.

    So SW is already old and tired, but Marvel isn't? Maybe Star Wars just isn't that good.

    I don't. But that can only be interesting for a finite amount of films or a certain length of screentime. Its already getting old for me, and we haven't got to IX yet. I think for general audiences, the best way to keep it fresh, is to tell spin-off stories that aren't about that conflict, but that do use it as a backdrop.

    Exactly. The one composer that could've written something like those pieces is early 2000s-era Shore, though he's far past his prime.

    If Tadlow can handle BEN-HUR, EL CID, and LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, I'm sure that they could handle RAMBO III. LIONHEART would be a great Tadlow project, but, of course, DRACULA would be better

    And for once we agree! It's a nicely made film, possibly a cut above most stuff these days. But a pointless one as well. Karol

    Williams donates all his scores to Juilliard

    Awesome gesture. Would be great if this, in turn, led to the availability of some of his unreleased scores (particularly STORIA DI UNNA DONNA), which would then be used for recordings. But I'm guessing there's a clause of some kind which says they're only available for study, not to be used for recordings.

    You're basing this on a sample size of....one? And when you say "just as lucrative"...you mean the one spin off they've had that wasn't as lucrative as the two "episodes" they've had?

    @Richard, that really sucks. Fun fact about hell: It's located just south of Trondheim Airport (Trondheim is the city where I live): So if you're going to hell, please let me know so we can meet up! The place is not as bad as people say.

    They tend to give a fuller orchestral sound to their JW re-recordings conpared to the OST tracks but also lose the thread in the process. Some of their Harry Potter stuff is really off, with the balance completely thrown off or stilted performances that lose the expression of the originals. Still lots of good stuff in there as well.

    I meant it in a humours way. Steve, one thing I am definitely not, is a snowflake. It takes more than a risqué picture of your namesake, to offend me. Please re-instate it, if you wish. This is JWfan, and not ANODYNEfan.
