  2. Step 1) Either be 13 or be with a 13-year-old. Step 2) Harass John Williams outside of his house with mediocre renditions of his music. Step 3) Wait for John Williams to come out of house. Step 4) Profit. This is seriously the most direct way to contact him.

  3. Love how Daily Prophet involves a dark rendition of the Hogwarts fanfare for the Gringotts break-in news - technically we're not yet supposed to know it involves Voldemort or the Stone so using those themes would've spoilt it! As much as Neville Stiffens is a clever idea (combining those two unused cues to kinda recreate the tracking in the film), it feels really redundant to have It's Guarding Something, another Hogwarts fanfare playoff, right after the big one in Running to McGonagall, you just want to get to the varied good stuff by then. It might have been better to just leave

  4. Dunkirk (2017) Not sure I'll ever understand why this got such a mixed reaction among the Nolan fanbase, when it’s arguably the director's most critically well-received film. Visually it looks great; the color palate is (like most Nolan films) very monochromatic and grey, but the framing and composition is very striking; plenty of beautiful shots. Very bare-bones narrative structure, and the dialogue is sparse and mostly limited to exposition. Zimmer's score may not be the most pleasant listening experience on its own, but it is absolutely brilliant in the film. It may be more soun

  6. Oh wow! That is amazing! I’d love to buy a copy when you’re finished with it! Ive noted all of your comments, rather than try to screw around through agencies and all that Jazz I’ll probably just abandon the idea entirely! If I was writing something more substantial it might be more of a “must-do” but, I’m afraid what I’m writing really doesn’t warrant a meet anyways! @Nick Parker IM IN LUCK! I just finished a batch of micro oganisims today, I’ll have to try your idea 😎 Thanks very much for the advice @Will If I find the address I might

  9. So what @Falstaft is saying, @D_nev, is that you must engineer microorganisms that will allow you to take control of Mike Mattesino's body and have him reach out to John Williams on your behalf.

  23. The Lion King (Walt Disney Legacy Collection) by Hans Zimmer Gloroiosus and triumphant, with the obviously notable songs and a score to math. There are two great themes that I seem to have rediscovered in this expanded relesase, which has probably been my favourite of Legacy Collection I've listened too so far. Excellent work on Zimmer's part. The Post by John Williams What stands out to me in this score is Williams utilization of the string section, especially in tracks like The Presses Roll. Others, such as The Papers, possess a much different musical structure, using s

  24. Than they're just not that good, I'm afraid. I'm certainly not against making a film into a theatrical experience, an event. But to do so at the expense of the film's ability to endure on the small-screen is, to my mind, a shame. Many (most?) of my defining film-viewing experiences were in my living-room. I'm sure many others were, too. There had been films that I watched in the theater and found myself engaging with more when I got down to watching them at home; and even when I get to rewatch such a film on a big-screen, I still think back on watching it at home as mor

  25. Its the kind of film that needs to be seen on a very, very big screen.Take that from it, and there's really not that much to be had. And even if that won't be quite true for those who did see it in the cinema, and went on to revisit it in their living-room, it will certainly be true-and-then-some for those who never saw it on the big-screen. I just don't think it'll have the longevity that other Nolan films will (or do) have. Still a good movie, though. The lack of wordliness (which plagues every other Nolan film) is very refreshing for this director.

  34. @NL197 My friend, what have I done to upset you? What could I have typed to get you so angry? "10 second...motif"? If you read my text, you'll see that I made no reference to any "10 second motif", so...what is the basis for this? "One minor motif"? Again, provide evidence of my writing this. Could it be that you read too much into my post; that you assumed? @Jay is right: my comment was not aimed at anyone on JWfan, but, instead, at the link. For the record, I do think that ST:II and ALIENS have a lot in common with AVATAR. The three scores offer prime examples

  37. I think you're right about this one -- as far as I can tell the chord is C# - D# - G - B. I'm not actually hearing an E natural anywhere, so if it's absent, it's not a half-dim7, technically. Though the chord does serve as a substitute to the syntactically more accustomed ii7b5. A wonderful, surprising sonority that links up nicely with the overall harmonic style of the Mountain Theme, as you note! Here's some more unusual ones to hunt for: ivØ7: Imperial March bviØ7: Chamber of Secrets

  38. I think Horner betrays his melodic grace here. I'll say this, when the main theme does appear, it is indeed quite lovely - but where the heck is it? Its full version is played only once in the film by the boy soprano. I think this is why it fails to have the emotional impact that the main theme of titanic does in the film. And sorry the War cue posted above, it sounded a lot like Remote Control and power anthems. Again no melodic grace.

  41. MM didn't edit the gracenote out of the Firebolt alternate, that track presents the cue as recorded (the entire set presents the cues at their full recorded length, he didn't go around editing bits out). Obviously after that was recorded, AC re-edited the scene, and JW had to add a grace note to the revised cue to cover the new length. Then, JW chose to have the grace note edited out for the OST album.

  42. It's here!!! @rough cut, MusicBox packaged it excellently, two layers of bubblewrap all around and a snugly fitting cardboard box. Feels great to hold it, looks gorgeous, the middle black bit of PS is absolutely destroyed, exactly half the teeth have broken off and one of the corners that holds the jewel case tray could break off any second. The other jewel cases seem cheaper, too, I see what people meant. Disc seems fine, will rip it as soon as possible. If I remember this and handle it carefully, it won't come loose and rattle around. Update: rips just fine, I guess w

People on here and FSM have been asking for a while if I was going to collect links to my Film Score Google Docs together in one place, and I've finally decided to just do it as a forum post here on JWFan. This thread will only contains info for Williams scores; non-Williams scores are over here. Every time I add a new score to the main post, I'll bump the thread, and you're welcome to ask me questions about any of the information on the spreadsheets here as well. After I get caught up and post every existing spreadsheet I already have, I'll considering ta

  45. Well then would you not call Flag Parade a theme either or Throne room or Jedi Steps (though Jedi Steps got used in the sequel) or the Aria from the finale of E.T. I think a single sequence use can still qualify a melody as a "theme" specially if it is clearly constructed and articulated, and usually expressed more than once one after the other. And you could argue, another variation of the Great Wall theme occupies this track from to 2:18 to 2:38, specially from 2:29 onwards. That would put the Great Hall theme in 2 sequences, with a variation to boot. And I think you
