  8. Okay, so apparently this just happened!? I don't have Disney+ (not available in Australia) and details appear to be scarce, but apparently the entire saga from the prequels to the sequels has just dropped in 4K with Dolby Atmos exclusive to Disney+ Disney+ gets every 'Star Wars' movie in 4K, Dolby Vision and Atmos

  9. Saw this pop up in my YT notifications on MM's page. This of course caused folks to ask if this meant that he was currently working on a new release to which he replied: Well? Is he telling the truth, trying to throw folks off track, or just totally messing with our fragile psyche?

  13. Yes you're probably right. My instinct with these things is to have an overabundance of caution.

  14. It's John Williams mimicking corporate music: the bassline is tasty, and it has some cool drum fills. Could've been way worse.

  15. TFA is an educational example how, from the writing, editing, recording, and mixing perspectives---to diminish the potent effects of music in a Star Wars film.

  16. I have to disagree @Docteur Qui. All those trademark Star Wars flourishes (especially in the flutes and piccolos) that were stripped out of his writing in TFA were back in TLJ, especially in action cues like Escape and Battle of Crait. Whereas the action material in TFA is a bit more rhythmic and unfocused, with streamlined orchestration. Arguably the different recording style hides some of those details but even the difference in editing between JJ and RJ gave Williams a larger palette to write more developed, sprawling ideas (especially having a greater chance to present long-for

  18. The film was great. The music for the reminded me a bit of Williams' approach to similar moments (in a good way).

  19. Mission Impossible - Fallout by Lorne Balfe Just listened to a complete edit that was circuling around. Balfe has been the most loyal and devoted Zimmer apprentice - and by that, I mean the one that followed his gospels more faithfully, instead of comitting the heresy of creating his own musical voice (like Powell, HGW and, hell, even JXL). This score sounds like a mix between The Dark Knight Rises, Inception and Mad Max: Fury Road, and him turning the classic Schifrin themes into RCP-style epic anthems is woefully misguided. It's rather funny to see Balfe posting enth

  21. How do you know it's boring if you haven't read it? How else do you plan to obtain enlightenment? With the Sequel Trilogy, many are already claiming "amateur storytelling". Perhaps they just don't understand the trajectory of the Saga and that this continued story is consistent with the previous episodes, with and abundance of clues that foreshadow events to come. The truth is, Lucasfilm conceived a plan for the Sequel Trilogy and stuck to it. The risk they took was in the manner of its presentation: Playing peoples' expectations and preconceptions against the

  22. I doubt it's in-house stuff. They likely bought it from a stock music company, as they usually do for these adverts.

  23. Completely disagree, TLJ sounds nothing like ROTS in my opinion, it's very much a continuation of the leaner sound he established in TFA. I'm not saying he's not capable of recapturing his previous styles, I'm saying that he's chosen not to for Star Wars. The march in that video is clearly modelled after the Droid material from TPM. It's too much of an emulation to be his new music. Could be a Gordy Haab for all we know, but I'll bet the farm it's not JW.

  25. The Mandalorian: Episodes 1 & 2 by Ludwig Goransson Repeated listens. This is the muse of the month. Keep it coming! Seven Years in Tibet by John Williams My praise for Seven Years in Tibet has been made quite clear in the past few years, but with each listen I find myself more and more attracted to this score. We all have our personal fancies; those unique opinions that can be appreciated by others not because we share them specifically, but because we find ourselves with similar preferences. For me, Seven Years in Tibet is my defining score, rich in beauty, unique o

  26. The Concord box definitely wasn't the best that could be done with those scores. It was a product of its time, when JW was uncomfortable with adding additional music to his albums, and also the person doing the tape transfers apparently not knowing what they were doing. (pitch problems) Surely in practical terms, there's nothing that makes them more difficult to expand than any other scores during the 80s. But it's Indy, which brings all sorts of complicated baggage and pretentiousness.

  27. That wouldn’t be an agent’s influence. Writing credits are taken pretty seriously by the Writers Guild of America and when there are multiple writers, they often arbitrate those credits by having a volunteer panel of veteran writers/guild members look at anonymously labeled drafts (Writer A, Writer B etc) to determine the authors of the final screenplay. Pretty sure it’s mandatory when the director or producer is a co-writer, specifically to avoid power plays, and those guild members are vetted to make sure they’re not acquainted with the filmmakers in question (obviously gotta be hard to find

  28. The dark knight. I feel really conflicted about it, so I’ll start with the two things that can’t be disputed: Heath Ledger is simply fantastic and Gary Oldman is brilliant. Other than that… I don’t know. Maybe I’ve watched too many Marvel movies, maybe I’ve just become too critical over the past eight years or maybe this movie just isn’t as spectacular as I once thought it was. I especially found the beginning rather disjointed and one or two sentences explaining motivations would have been really welcome. Then, there’s this growling Batman driving me up the walls and the conversat

  29. At this point I don't care who composed this because it sounds great and I want to hear it in its full glory. Now, my bet is that it's Williams.

  30. What saddens me is not that they are still recording and asking Williams to write new music or do rewrites due to scenes changing until the very last minute. What bothers me is that it won’t prevent the music to be butchered in the editing process.

  32. Just in time for the 2020 election: The John Williams / Oliver Stone Boxed Set. The complete scores to Born on the Fourth of July, JFK, and Nixon. All of the Americana music to express the hope and promise of the process, the sinister music for the dirty tricks and unspoken realities of the process, and the edgy modern music to underscore the monster clusterfuck that we all know this election will devolve into. Whaddya think? Too bleak? I don't think we'll get any more JW music than we know about currently. But I will be glad to be wrong.

    The Simpsons on Disney+

    Disney is beginning to go down a very dangerous path with its newfound power. Imagine in the future when Disney's dominance is all-encompassing and their streaming service is the only one which future generations will be acquainted with, and episodes, seasons, films etc. are all purged from history without any democratic process or deliberation. No one has DVDs anymore, or any way to play them and the state propaganda is all they will know. Yeah, it's their platform and service so they can cut what they want, but why not let the viewer decide for themselves? Why must we be told 'n
