  1. “Travesty”? Don’t you think you’re overstating your case just a bit? They are, in fact, faithful adaptions. That’s indisputable. Whether you think that’s good or bad is another question. Read what Spielberg planned to do with Harry Potter and maybe you’ll appreciate what Columbus did a bit more. While in general I share your opinion that the first two films were a little bland, and perhaps too literal, I think this approach early on was probably the right one. It got the hard core fans on board, which is the first thing they needed to do. And by hewing so closely to the books initially, I think it gave them the credibility, (with both Rowling and the fans), & freedom to take more liberties with the material later.

  2. Not all tracks on the OST are alternates. THE MEETING IN THE CAVE, THE BAT ATTACK, DRACULA'S DEATH, END TITLES are all film versions. NB DRACULA'S DEATH is edited for the OST, for those who've never seen the film.

  3. I know I could have played a bit with the EQ on this... but decided to leave it as it was. The guy from who I got the rip seemed to have a top notch turntable. I only wanted to prove that the sound of the Varese CD was crap. Done. Now a professional will work on the case and manage to release a proper CD version... I hope.

  5. Ant-man and the Wasp So much fun! Go see it if all you’re looking for is a great time at the movies. Great humor, a surprisingly compelling villain, and standout acting; the chemistry between Rudd and Lilly practically leaps off the screen. I had my occasionally nitpicks with the movie, but overall, it’s a noticeable improvement over its predecessor, and just a really funny and likable addition to the MCU. I feel really invested in these characters, and I can’t wait to see more of them. **** and 1/2 out of *****

  6. Yeah, never really understood the criticism there. The impact of Voldemort's death wasn't lessened by the way they portrayed it in the films, the look on Fiennes' face as he dies is actually quite powerful - the cruel, soulless being had tears in his eyes as if for one last fleeting moment before the end he was human again.

  8. @Chen G. I didn't say all book-film adaptations required reading the source material, but I believe the films of the Potter series benefit from reading the books they're based off, that's all I was suggesting! The Columbus films are great at laying a good solid foundation on which the framework of the series was built. After seeing Columbus's other works (not counting Home Alone) I think it was a stroke of magic and coincidence that the first two films worked out so well. Percy Jackson is a mess!

  9. That last movie undercuts pretty much every core theme of the goddamn series. It's an awful mess of a movie even ignoring that.

  10. They mostly don't, as it's basically impossible without ridiculous witholding-from-the-audience twists a la Fight Club. We definitely know Stevens' POV throughout the film, but the film is able to show without spelling it out how his way of looking at the world is not shared by everyone around him. It sort of cleverly is able to indicate how he would tell the story (which he does in the novel) while also keeping a third person view of the action. I don't know how to explain it.

    Rescored films

    Mega bump, but here it is: I rescored the Shin Godzilla Atomic Breath scene with Michael Giacchino's music from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I think it fits really well. Bear in mind this was also an experiment at rebuilding the SFX field (the explosions are jarring in Godzilla films because there are only ever three sounds they use and they're often used in quick succession) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iTvsCgRPEj1Sf5E0KaxWTBbMBt5_b0aR/view?usp=sharing

  15. I also love THE ASSASSINATION...,and I saw it at the cinema. It was my favourite film of 2007. Believe me, Alex, it holds up. Afleck's pitiable performance, the themes of the cult of celebrity, and Deakins' photography make it eminently rewatchable.

  16. Incredibles 2 - almost as much fun as the original (after I moved away from the family seemingly treating the cinema as some sort of fucking indoor picnic area, that is. It was an 11:00 am screening, couldn't they have had breakfast before turning up? GAH).

  17. It is. I'm in two minds about its thematic significance, however. On the one hand, its use seems quite intentional (especially because it also appears in the original Sail Barge composition) and its even varied between statements. On the other hand, the association amounts to little more than a generic, "triumphant" motif. That makes it extra baffling because both Luke's two themes, the Rebel Fanfare and Throne Room theme all carry that association, as well, and all feature in Return of the Jedi, so why have another leitmotif (if were are to assume it is one) along those lines? I don't think Williams even spoke about it, and Matessino's liner notes to the special edition make no note of it whatsoever. Lehman only classifies it as an incidental, "Lydian" fanfare. Adams, however, labels it as the "Victory Fanfare" motif. I dunno.

  21. And how do these, very specific plot elements undercut the narrative of any of the books, much less the entire series? Which is exactly why I'm cutting the first film a lot of slack - the second film, not so much.

  23. Yates is no Kubrick - he had enough skill and vision to make a masterpiece out of anything. HP8 goes far enough to completely reverse core themes of the book series in favour of empty, illogical (in-universe) visual spectacle. The previous two Yates films "mess with" the material that "surrounds the core" by throwing the core (like essential plot setup) out at times and filling in pointless shit, then later scrambling to somehow make sense of the mess they created.

    John Williams Discography

    I think I recall he only gave a list of takes and editing instructions, but wasn't involved in the actual editing - which shows. Don't know if that's enough for Bespin's criteria.

  29. I wouldn't describe it as having 'barely anything' to do with the book, I think it's one of the better examples of how a film adaptation can take from the books and make changes without sacrificing the integrity or the core plot and themes. I think the films, all of them, deserve to be watched as companion pieces to the books and vice versa, where things better left out for time's sake can be answered by the books.

  31. Well, I certainly havn't forgotten No Country For Old Men. Disturbing, provoking, about as close to cinematic perfection as you can get. Not quite there, though. There's a circa 2004 Volvo semi-truck visible in one scene.

  36. I have a special connection to The Mummy Returns, which really isn't a very good movie (especially the end), but it is fun. It was a movie that opened right when I started working at a movie theater, so I would spend my lunch breaks sitting in that movie for pretty much the entire summer.

  40. I couldn't believe the de-aging CGI in Ant-Man and the Wasp honestly. Both Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer looked precisely like they did in the 1980s, and with no uncanny valley at all. My eye was completely tricked. That stuff has come a long way.

  41. Oh, sure. My issue is with the concept that to romanticise a heroine is anathema, as if it degrades the character in some esoteric way. Not that I'm a huge fan, but Wonder Woman was a good film (by a woman director), with a good female lead, who was played by a model, and walked around in a mini-skirt and corset and had a romantic relationship in the film. Rey, on the other hand...

  45. I think one of the reasons why Williams rejected the idea of these early scores from coming around today, is that they are highly dated and primitive from his own evolution point of view as a composer. I think he is a bit embarrassed about them. We all know how we feel as an artist if something that was created ages ago and revisiting it becomes a moment of anguish. Also another reason would be the sonic quality of those tapes which were not up to the mark or the performances of that orchestra/ensemble. I remember the original recording of the JAWS score was not possible for release because Williams didn't want it out But now we know it was primarily a pseudo-mono styled recording made to fit the dynamics of the film. Thankfully technology allowed it to happen with Mike Matessino at the helm (And we know how the first cd release of that score turned out to be) Speaking of Matessino, it seems that Williams is now unusually warming up to many new expansions as Williams and his management team trust his expertise, ethics, skills and insight into the restoration process. This new THE COWBOYS is another example of this fruitful relationship blossoming. Each new release gives us hope and edges up a notch for more projects to happen. So, yes, give it some time and and many more wonderful surprises are in store for us. I will wait and champion my support to Mike and the labels.
