  1. Huh, some of these productions could be fun and interesting, but they should have announced that they're handing over their entire music vault to Mike Matessino for him to have his way with to really get people excited.

  2. Exactly this. In fact, one of the more recent updates to my own catalogue, I merged what I had been calling the First Order Motif and Kylo Ren's C theme (Menacing) into one overall leitmotif, with different guises in TFA and largely dropped after that point. It also reminds me of this ancient post I made long ago where I anticipated the existence of the "1st Order Theme." Must have known something secret about the future of Star Wars /

  3. Not that thrilled, to be honest. As previously noted, I had hoped for Zimmer to go old-school synth (given the timeframe of the movie) with some cool analogue tech. More in synthwave territory, alternatively some great 90s power anthems. But this is more the kind of contemporary superhero stuff we've heard from him. I can't hear any "Battle of Pride Rock" in this at all -- that cue has actual dynamics; this feels very dense.

  4. I'd describe myself as a 2-or-3-disc set with just about everything included, however some moron botched the masters and the frequency now cuts off at 32khz. Also there might be some water damage on several tracks. And the source music is missing.

  7. My god, 1:05 and 2:00 onwards are fucking obnoxious. This is why I can't stand to listen to Zimmer, among many other things. How can you produce shit that sounds like a monkey is hitting the same 3 buttons with brute force over and over? It's still the sound of the first PotC movie, which was 20 years ago. Pathetic.

  11. Yes, but LOGAN was great. I have hopes for this movie, even if Spielberg will no longer direct. And I find the endless jokes surrounding Ford's age very tiresome. He's very fit for his age, and it's up to the screenwriters to write his character in a way that takes his age into consideration.

  23. I mean, in those sequels it is not the situation that the producers say, we still have a great story to tell, so how can we do this? It is more like, we have a successful prominent franchise with characters that people love having acted in scenes that people like to remember and rewatch again and again, but we don't earn money from people watching their old DVDs at home. So, how can we make more money from that? Create another movie with this character filled with variations of these beloved scenes so that people again go to cinema and pay for being reminded to the old film without us inv

  25. I bet they’ll do some Kylo/Rey thing where they talk through the Force and so it’s Vader but in Anakin form, through Obi-Wan’s eyes. Or maybe a dream device so it’s one-sided and technically doesn’t mess with the canon. We all knew Force Awakens was the last time a Star Wars movie would have that aura. I remember all the hype at the time and thinking, this is it, enjoy this. I’m not even eulogizing. Star Wars and the faint of heart will survive. These things will either be fine or crappy or whatever, somebody will eventually stumble on some great take and that

  26. Maybe it's me. Maybe I have "moved on", but it feels somehow right to say that I have no interest in this film, whatsoever. I've no wish to denigrate people's efforts, but, imo, the Indiana Jones story came to a satisfactory end, in 1989, and I have no plans to revisit it, beyond that date.

  28. JW will get first refusal, and if he doesn't want to do it outright, I hope he recommends Powell. Beltrami would do a fine job, but Powell's proven he's the right choice with Solo.

  29. Yes, that I forgot;, would also be nice, but not necessary. On the whole the experience diminished for me with the reduced newness factor, and I started noticing annoying aspects like too loud dialogue and sound effects, detracting from the music experience. I would prefer a pure music experience, without dialogue or noise, just subtitles for orientation and full concentration on the music. Otherwise it is not that much different from a cinema with good sound system.

  30. Not at all. The film is obviously somewhat of a clunker. Inspired by the seminal BLACKBOARD JUNGLE (1955), there were all kinds of 'rebellious youth' films in the late 50s and early 60s, and this falls neatly in line with that. Nothing original about it, and the intrigue and social commentary are both fairly vacant. But there's a lot of cool music in it. It sounds much more like Williams than, say, I PASSED FOR WHITE. In addition the chase cue mentioned earlier, I also remember a rather lovely, pastoral cue for the domestic scenes. And - as previously noted - Williams' nice arrange

  34. I am saying those alts and source cues from the Rhino and FSM are not on here, and the reason is because they are on that other set. (BTW, for those who care, some early unrecorded versions of cues were rerecorded for the sequels)

  35. Villeneuve's essay on the HBO deal: https://variety.com/2020/film/news/dune-denis-villeneuve-blasts-warner-bros-1234851270/?fbclid=IwAR2kDHHPeBRqaFPFf44P9IvX3rllKboVxjgFqjcY7tVC0uIaBUjU_cZ_zKc Of course it will. Why would anyone want to take their family out to the theaters and pay 5 x $15 to watch a film on the big screen when they can settle for their family room screens for their regular monthly streaming fee? No real "additional money" is being made here, except that Warner Bros' parent company (AT&T) wants to find a way to both consolidate the lacklustre HBO

  36. I can't see any reason Williams would decline, barring health issues. He would be desperate to get back in front of the studio orchestra right now (and probably keen to help the struggling LA musicians who haven't been able to work on large symphonic scores this year).

  45. Despite both being written for the same soloist and with a concert setting in mind, these are two very different works born out of very different circumstances and with very different purposes. Both works have some stylistic and aesthetic similarities, but imho they show different sides of JW's personality. The Geisha suite is an astounding rework of the film score material and it certainly goes beyond its filmic nature to become a concert piece of its own. Despite still bringing connotations and influences dictated by the source material, it sounds more like a personal reinterpret

  46. Not to be argumentative, but that's not what I said at all. I said that the score is really good, occasionally great, and that - quote - "the way they adopted both the compositional stylistics and dramatic impetus of Bernard Herrmann, and did it so convincingly, is impressive indeed, while the big band jazz and swing tracks are just remarkable, faithfully rendered and wonderfully arranged and performed." I mention Conrad Pope and Dan Higgins as being involved in the score, but I specifically went out of my way to say "in the end, the score for Mank has Reznor and Ross’s names on the credits, a

  47. I like the positive sound of the WW track. I just wish Zimmer would use a less ostinato-led approach - it feels like it's holding back the sound of the track.
