    I'll amend and re-upload with the prequel ones. Jedi with less colour saturation and the prequels.

    It was blue until relatively late in post production (even in the trailers I think) and I heard somewhere the change to green was made so it would show up better against the sky in the Sarlacc fight scene. TPM and AotC price also fell on Amazon UK. By the time they come out, they'll all be 4 Pounds!

    It’s all well and good discussing the library of movies John Williams has scored over the years - but what about the films he hasn’t? Which films do you think would have been improved if JW had scored them? My opinion on this matter is that the rest of the “Potter” films would’ve been much improved with a score by Williams. what do you guys think?

    It just feels generic to me, Trajan at least has some character. A single LP from 1983 with much information crammed onto it is different from a special remastered CD rerelease. Thank Eru for Amazon preorder keeping the lowest price then!

    Photoshop Which font do you think would work better? i'll try it out. Yes, Darth Vader was spoiling the aesthetic, he's a big feature on 3, 4 and 5, I didn't think anyone would miss him. Return of the Jedi was the most difficult to adapt due to the posters available.

    Donner's Ladyhawke is absolutely crying out in every scene for Williams, or maybe Horner and Goldsmith. I think it is a movie that was good enough to become iconic if it had an iconic score.

    Any further collaboration between Williams and Altman would have been great.

    Still trying to figure out if i can listen to a 5.1 mix of this score (And whether or not that would be of any value, or if the mix was ever intended to be 5.1)?

    You forgot roasted Porg. My understanding is that Ewoks like to eat roasted human as well. What a sight that would have been. Anyway, I'm not interested in being fair to Denny's, or Warner/New Line's, crasser forms of marketing for The Hobbit. I understand product tie-ins are just a reality for big tentpole pics like this, but you can do a lot of marketing around these films without being completely tasteless (pun intended). I actually think the Tolkien estate sued New Line for some of their more obnoxious forms of marketing, because they hurt the Tolkien brand in general. On whether the Green Dragon or Prancing Pony served "Gandalf's Gobble Melt" one can only speculate. I actually mind the Han Solo menu less than The Hobbit one. Star Wars went down this road from almost day one, there's no dignity there left to protect.

    Brilliant, @Holko! A few weeks ago, I was in my local major-chain music store. A man was standing at a till, waiting to pay for his purchases, failing to see a sign, not six inches from his face, saying THIS TILL IS CLOSED, PLEASE PAY UPSTAIRS

    Just voted in my first election. It was damn anticlimactic. Somehow we're breaking voter turnout records, when the campaign wasn't even long or intense. The best part was seeing what kind of idiots have voting rights. The usual place is closed for renovation, the voting is held in a back room in the village sport hall. Even though this was written down in the invitation letter, on Facebook, and many arrows were glued to the walls pointing to that room, the local policeman couldn't even find it. On the way back, we saw an old woman trying to break down the fence of the regular voting place, failing to notice the sign in huge letters in front of her face saying "VOTING'S NOT HERE, STUPID!" or something along those lines.

    Women have a right to equal opportunities, not to equal outcomes. Equalization of the cast (or equalization anywhere) is not, nor has it ever been, an ideal in the western world. That’s the point. It makes sense that an action film would, usually, have a predominantly male cast. It’s a masculine genre with characters that are usually required to be very masculine themselves.

    I agree that Jedi looks better with less saturation. Both on its own, but also as a whole with the other two. Good work!

    Nice. But the more I listen to it, the more I think that the Kempe/Vienna Philharmonic version (which I've posted before) has to be among the best performances (of anything) I've heard: Love that hectic string sound that's always there but never distracts from the brass melody.

    He changed his username to Batman's Diet Coke for some reason. I do like 90s ads, so I suppose I'm cool with it. As for @Bespin, I hope he does not leave permanently. A fellow who is passionate about Bach, Williams and Roy Orbison is to be appreciated.

    What’s so mysogynistic here, I have no idea. It always helps when you, the individual watching the film, can relate to the characters further through something you share: whether it means having characters of different age groups so you can find the one that you share your age with; different genders and yes, different ethnicities. Female characters can also help men watching the film, certainly. It gives the film a sense of variety. Since it is a feminine trait by nature, women in films tend to serve as the emotional core and/or the conscious of the film. That’s not sexist on the part of the filmmakers. But, if you were to point out in the current social climate that women in film also serve as eye-candy for men (which they absolutely are), that too would be hastly classified as misogynistic and sexist, so....

    Berserk over gender roles? You mean tolerating all people? If a writer is interested in making a protagonist gay, why does that bother you? Why does there need to be an explicit reason for that decision? We don’t demand that being straight requires a narrative explanation? Honestly, the sooner viewpoints like yours die the better this world will be.

    One of the downsides of being into film music is that you get a LOT of tunes and melodies lodged into your head and find yourself whistling said tune involuntarily. The situation worsens when doing such in public, and an unfortunate pedestrian curiously questions what you're whistling, and you're forced to come out with the devastating truth that, in fact, you're whistling Sid the sloth's theme from John Powell's Ice Age.

    That certain films have a tendency to overplay the diversity card is one thing. But I can't see what warrants this impassioned, and quite frankly, misguided tirade on gender characterizations and generalizations. No one is arguing that the male and female sex are biologically different. But I would love to read the paper that shows a qualitative biological measure of "assertiveness" (whatever that means...) between both sexes. Or more importantly, what that has to do with film at all, let alone this thread. Do you have specific examples of movies that do this supposedly great disservice to the accurate portrayal of females and their "assertiveness"? - KK, who's just a little confused at where this thread ended up

    It's a set of scores that feels like it should be available in perpetuity. The idea that, once this sells out, people can only buy the OST again... that's just not on

    The Top 10 users on your ignore list this week

    I don't like the entire idea of this thread. I don't like announcing to the forum what other users you don't like, all that leads to is hurt feelings (for people who were genuine in their posts, but you don't happen to like what they say) or troll-feeding (for true trolls who make troll posts and know it, and get off on other people expressing their dislike of their posts). The better thing to do is simply ignore the users you don't like reading, and use the Report button on posts that are true troll posts. In this specific case, there's nothing whatsoever wrong with people sharing fan-made covers, that has been done on this forum for the entire 19 years it has existed. It could be argued that there could be a separate fan cover thread and a separate News thread for the Star Wars remasters, but let's be honest; We've had one announcement, and then its just been pages of speculation since. When actual news about that release happens, it will be posted, but is it really that hard to ignore general chit chat about the release until it happens? Star Wars scores have always and will always be the biggest discussion generators around here; of course people are excited about these remasters and it is an active thread. I'm not sure anything has to actually be done about it though. Is the solution to really break the discussion into multiple threads instead of containing it all to one?

    I'm assuming we'll get no mentions of Elfman's addendum to Silvestri's Avengers theme in Infinity War, which is a bit of a shame.
