    What is your go-to feel-good movie?

    To make something truly dramatic, you have to have significant low points where the story is downright grim, so the catharsis of the end is that much more impactful. Specifically, in the case of Braveheart, the tragedy that looms over so much of the narrative is balanced with humor that's just insanely funny, to me. Not to mention that its always delivered in just the right spots for the audience to never too deep into the harrowing nature of the story - so there's that going for it, as well. It really is a marvel of editing, because the script is much different to the final edit.

    I have 2 questions: 1) Why hasn't anyone asked yet what is the music that is playing? 2) Why does it sound like John Williams but I don't think it's Williams and can't pinpoint it either?

    What is your go-to feel-good movie?

    On occasion, I like to watch movies that have low stakes, good humor, are easy to watch and don't dip too far down before a big, boisterous third act. One of my favorite examples of a movie like this is Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox. Yes, it's a stop-motion film with talking animals, but it's also an absolute masterpiece and immensely amusing. From the way the film looks (everything is shot in rich, warm tones), to the pitch-perfect voice cast, to the deadpan humor; it's a movie I can put on whenever I'm feeling a bit down and is guaranteed to put a smile on my face. What is everyone's favorite "feel-good" movie?

    Another day of Spotify albums Danny Elfman - Men In Black Hadn't listened to this in years. Superfun! Though, admittedly, all the best music is towards the beginning of the album. James Horner - Aliens (Deluxe Edition) One of my favorite scores ever! Jerry Goldsmith - Link Hehhe, like a silly cousin of Gremlins. Quirky and fun!

    Star Wars Disenchantment

    Female and male characters are juxtaposed throughout TLJ, with the women unfailingly painted in the more positive light. I assume that’s intentional; it’s so pronounced and consistent that I read it as one of the themes of the film. I’m thinking specifically of Rose/Finn, Rey/Luke, and Holdo/Poe. In each case, the female character arrests, undermines, and/or lectures the male character for his actions (or inactivity), multiple times; and the audience is unambiguously intended to appreciate the correctness of the female’s position. Furthermore, if you consider Leia/Luke (the old generation of Skywalkers) and Rey/Ben (the new generation of Skywalkers, at least functionally), the female in both pairings can be described as steadfast and unflinching in the cause of right, whereas the males have both pathetically lost their way. We’re meant to notice and consider these parallels. Please, I’m not “threatened” by any one of these instances; I just think it’s fair to say there is an intentional pattern in place within the piece. I try not to let it jerk me out of the story and make me necessarily think about real-world SJWs or whatever, but as a theme of the film, it is fair game for deconstruction. Is it a very meaningful theme? How does it relate to the eternal cosmic war of good and evil? How does “The Force is female” work into this structure or shed light on it?

    Giacchino's use of the Imperial motif in R1 was low effort copy-paste. Powell utilized the theme in a much more colorful way.

    The other day I was defending Rogue One. Someone was talking about how they liked Powell using that SW 1977 Imperial theme in Train Heist. And I was like... Now hold on just a second: EDIT: Just to confirm, Solo>Rogue One score wise. But Rogue One's not all bad.

    The Official Intrada Thread

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mainstream_Records Well in addition to this latest twofer and Mandel's Harper, Intrada has in the past few years also done new editions from the original tapes for Jerry Goldsmith's The Trouble With Angels (expanded with film stems) and the unique Stagecoach album recording, paired with Malcolm Arnold's The Heroes of Telemark. Maybe a new release of The Collector by Maurice Jarre from original tapes? A new edition of Goldsmith's A Patch of Blue? Intrada put out their last edition of this over 20 years ago. Barry's King Rat? Rota's Juliet of the Spirits? There are also works by other obscure but talented film composers like Ruby Raksin (David Raksin's brother), Elliott Kaplan (no relation to Sol Kaplan as far as I know), and more... Yavar

    I agree with you on Warlock. If anything I find the way the synths are handled enchances that score quite a bit, really gives it a more unique feeling. Also the synths are about the only thing I would change about Legend's score. At points, they distract from an otherwise perfect listening experience. As for my favorite Rambo score, I would say the first, just because it's the most "restrained" of the bunch, but it depends on what mood I'm in. If I'm in the mood for some great action I listen to First Blood Part II, and if I want something a bit more vaguely "middle-eastern sounding", and even thoughtful at points, I listen to part III. All three scores are superb, which is the great thing about Goldsmith's sequel scores in general. He doesn't simply just rehash music, he makes it different enough, so they can all stand on there own.

    Except for his statement that 9 could still fix things and Star Wars is not yet completely dead, he's only been regurgitating the circlejerk Youtube bullshit that everyone else has. Of course the one thing he hasn't responded to yet is where I ask him to point out and explain some flaws himself.

    That we don't have equal outcomes in most work environments doesn't mean that the concept doesn't affect our lives and may very soon start to affect our films.

    I think we're an extraordinary way from seeing any real equality-of-outcome occur within our society due to the fact that we're still suffering from an abundance of basic inequality which doesn't seem to be going away. The fear of a concept that hasn't had any meaningful impact on our society is puzzling to me, because it often detracts the conversation from the existing problems that are very much affecting people. But back to the topic, one white woman in charge of a multi billion-dollar company which in turn answers to a large conglomerate of the most rich and powerful white men who have ever lived, and she's what we should be worried about in the world?

    REMIXED & RESTORED: Jurassic Park

    Um, the "film version" is the version in the film. If we got a complete soundtrack of all the music for the film that SHOULD include the music that, you know, is actually in the film. And those whining that it's not better are only doing so because no matter who says what about anything if it isn't in the Maestro's original music sheets it will always be wrong to you. It's a triumphant moment that works perfectly as noted by the film maker himself who, you know, has a pretty damn good idea of what makes a film fantastic. There's no reason BOTH versions weren't on the LL release. But go on spewing your hate with nothing else to fill your lives. I'll have to edit the song myself so when I listen to the complete score I don't get disappointed each time I'm expecting the triumphant fanfare for the hero of the film.
