  1. For me: 1959-1974: The early years 1975-1982: The creative peak years 1983-1993: Succesful years, with some creative peaks (Born On The Fourth Of July, Home Alone, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, ...) 1994-2005: Slightly darker, more personal years, with some creative peaks (A.I., Harry Potter) 2008-present: The latter years
  2. It is perfectly logical to judge Star Wars films by their length: ANH and ESB are the shortest ones and AOTC and TLJ the longest. Obviously we need more runtime.
  3. I think the music sounds very much alike the march we heard last year during the Verizon (?) commercial that turned out to be a mystery... It certainly wasn’t part of the TLJ score. Same composer?
  4. Probably. I think the music actually sounds very much alike the march we heard last year during the Verizon (?) commercial that turned out to be a mystery... It certainly wasn’t part of the TLJ score. Same composer?
  5. As you can read on one of the first pages, I confirmed it was Williams’ music long before it became fact. I checked with the same source, but he can/will not confirm it’s Williams this time.
  6. There are substantial rumors floating around that indicate that the original opening scene has recently been completely replaced.
  7. Does anyone know what involvement Williams had on this album? Did he arrange all the selections, similar to the recent Mutter release..? Update: never mind. I just read Williams only arranged the Stepmom cue himself.
  8. Great, but it says WiLLLAms
  9. I don’t know if it was Williams’ decision to incorporate it into the score or whether it was an editorial decision, but now that the cat is out of the bag, I wonder if in retrospect it meant more than what we initially thought... What do you think?
  10. I never got the issues with Babel. Songs like Below My Feet, Ghosts That We Knew or the title track are awesome and the album feels pretty coherent. Oh yeah, and it was a minor critical success as well and won the Grammy for Album of the Year. A little more love perhaps? 😉
  11. I was born in the year of Jaws, discovered Star Wars at the age of 5, just after the release of ESB I guess. Saw ROTJ when it came out on the big screen when I was 8 years old. Star Wars -and the music of John Williams- has always been part of my life and it will be until the day I die.
  12. Currently into Mumford & Sons. Their latest album Delta is great imo. The last 2 minutes of The Wild are really cinematic and epic, so anyone willing to listen to the whole 5 minute+ song won't be disappointed I think.
  13. At first I found it very similar to Agnes Of God, but after having listened to both pieces occasionally for a couple of years now, I find that The Face Of Pan clearly has its own, unique melodic core and its own story to tell. Influenced? Of course. Copy? No.
  14. It’s certainly a masterpiece, even if it doesn’t reach the heights of what many consider ‘the true John Williams’ classics’. I find War Horse so well infused with melody and themes, all of which get a moment to shine in The Homecoming, one of Williams’ finest suites. It’s a top 15 score for me and my favorite since the first Harry Potter.
  15. The song is great and so was the film actually.
  16. 1. The Throne Room and Finale from Star Wars 2. Adventures On Earth from E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 3. Journey To The Island from Jurassic Park 4. The Rebel Fleet And Finale from The Empire Strikes Back 5. Raiders Of The Lost Ark from Raiders Of The Lost Ark 6. Theme from Schindler’s List 7. Resolution And Finale from Close Encouters Of The Third Kind 8. Theme from Jaws 9. Hedwig’s Theme from Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone 10. Prelude And Superman Theme from Superman The Movie
