  1. In this first instance it is inverted. I have the original score. So, would the numbers be correct?
  2. It's difficult now, because I haven't written it in Sibelius. The next 2 bars, is a plagal candence. i - iv - i. it's from the Look Down Lord song, by John Williams. edit: the chord in question is at 0.19-20:
  3. Hello. I'm stuck with the numbering in a chord, hope someone could help me. is it correct like I have written it? It's a bII with a 9th, in 2nd inversion.
  4. What has resolution got to do with the filmmakers' intentions?
  5. Well, there is an alternate main title music (not available in recording), that uses the exact same iteration of Tintin's theme as soon as the title appears, so I used this as the "original pure theme". of which we hear snippets here and there in the film. This "heroic" version (it states "heroically" in the sheets in both instances) sounds like having a too clear profile to be a metamorphosis of a main motif. At least to me.
  6. I think I'll disagree with this. Tintin has a regular 8-bar theme. 4.17-4.30
  7. Oh, Ok. It just seemed weird to me that you have the capability to play blurays, but still you buy DVDs.
  8. You have purchased some DVDs and 3 Blu-rays. Why eg. didn't you buy Cliffhanger Bluray, or Species Bluray etc.?
  9. Why aren't ALL blurays and you have purchased DVDs too?
  10. There is an interesting 1991 John Caps article ("John Williams: Scoring the Central line") that divides Williams' periods as follows: a) his jazz and comedy apprentiship beginning with Checkmate (1959) and ending with A Guide for the Married man (1967) b) apparent transition into serious scoring with the Reivers (1969) culminating in Jaws (1975) c) unprecedent reign as the most successful film composer in history from Star Wars (1977) to E.T. (1982) d) his gradual mellowing in later 1980s into a refined romanticism which was sentimental in Accidental Tourist (1988), peaceful and tempo-less like New Age dream in Always (1989), pianistic and ceremonial in Presumed Innocent (1990).
  11. I'd like to buy it but I'm waiting on a possible 4K scan...
  12. Let's hope they leak like War Horse. I'd love a complete Memoirs of a Geisha.
  13. Thank you both for this.. Although I find it a bit difficult to understand without subtitles since English is not my native language, I really enjoy this. I'm halfway through. By the way, @Falstaft it's me that sent you a friend request at facebook.
  14. I would guess any totally unreleased Williams score (eg. the Secret Ways) is not Black Friday material, right? In that case, I would prefer too a Stone-Williams box with those 3 complete scores or just even a Nixon complete score.
  15. I'd like to make a citation on these words here: 'I can see you have a great deal of water in your personality. Water never waits. It changes shape and flows around things, and finds the secret paths no one else has thought about -- the tiny hole through the roof or the bottom of the box. There's no doubt it's the most versatile of the five elements. It can wash away earth; it can put out fire; it can wear a piece of metal down and sweep it away. Even wood, which is its natural complement, can't survive without being nurtured by water. And yet, you haven't drawn on those strengths in living your life, have you?'(125) So, I'd really appreciate it if someone has the book and can tell me in which page this appears, as well the publisher, and the place and year of publication of the book he/she has.
  16. I would hope it's Nixon, but i wouldn't call it major, unless refering to its composer.
  17. I feel exactly this way, but it's a part of generally losing interest in anything in life...
  18. I will agree here. I generally don't like arrangements of existing music, and to "show-off" a particular instrument on top of that.
  19. For anyone interested Arrow is releasing a bells and whistles edition of Robocop on Bluray with 2 isolated score tracks!! https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p=16786560&postcount=654 The official announcement will be in an hour in facebook.
