  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?

  10. I like Banning Back Home, it's a nice change of sound from the rest of the score.

    John Powell kicks ass

    Once again a nice interview of Powell! He really his a composer I like and easily take the second place after John Williams imho. BTW: he talks a bit about Williams

  13. I think @DominicCobb was referring to reshoots. TFA definitely recorded the score until mid-November but I didn't think TFA had reshoots as late as TROS.

  14. Since they are still recording and the Vienna concert will happen, I hope more Bruckner style, like the Spark. 😎😍

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

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

  17. 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.

  18. 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

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

  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. Parasite - Jung Jaeil Surprised that I haven't seen this show up much on this forum yet. The film is fantastic, and the score a big part of why the tonal shifts are able to work so well. Jaeil is in full command of his music, love both the classical first half and the thriller/drama second.

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

  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. When the concerts were scheduled for last year, several people emailed the ticket office to ask if there was a chance that they would be recorded, and got the reply that the plan was to record and release them. At least one person asked if that plan was still current and got a a reply confirming that it was. Not an actual official announcement, as I said, but presumably from a sufficiently official source.

  28. 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.

  29. 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

  30. 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.

  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.

  33. In Jeff's latest episode of "The Baton", I joined him as a co-host to discuss one of JW's most underrated scores, The Fury https://thebatonpodcast.podbean.com/e/episode-48-the-fury/ It was lovely to be a guest of Jeff's show, he's very dedicated to this thorough job. I look forward to join him in other episodes in the future!

  35. BOTFOJ 30th Anniversary would be a welcome surprise! But considering JFK has been tied up for so long... Would an Oliver Stone box set be possible this year instead?

  36. I recently watched The Reivers on blu-ray (actually really liked the film a lot - the score fits it well). I was not keeping track of the score and comparing it to the CD release, but I am almost 100% sure that the music that plays at the end of the horse race is not represented on any release. There is likely more missing, but that definitely stood out to me particularly because the first part of the horse race is not scored at all (or at least if it was scored, the music was not used in the film mix). So, I am hoping there is more to get from that film should sessions be found. N
