    filmmusic got a reaction from JTWfan77 in Williams filmography in Bluray - a list   
    They say it's because on the side (if you see the big image), it doesn't have the bluray logo but it just says blu-ray disc.
    Other Paramount blurays are being released that day and they are all BD-Rs according to bluray.com.

    You should. 
    Actually i think every jwfanner owes it to him/herself to watch the movies for which these scores were specifically composed for.

    My copy arrived in the mail yesterday. Sad that it took so long, since it's actually a quite good piano album, maybe the best of the ST, yet few people seem to care about that now, 4 months after the film came out.
     
    Here's a bit more detail on each selection:
    1) Fanfare & Prologue: Contains everything up through 2:04 on Track 1 of OST.
    2) Journey to Exegol: Goes up to 0:47 of Track 2 of OST
    3) The Rise of Skywalker: Entirety of Track 3 of OST. Represents entirety of the concert arrangement, in a decent arrangement (though I wish it, like everything in here, were a little more pianistic, a little less direct in paraphrasing the orcherstral score).
    4) The Speeder Chase: Music from 0:46 to 1:59 of Track 5 of OST
    5) Destiny of a Jedi: Music from 0:22 to 2:26 of OST Track 6
    6) Anthem of Evil: Music from beginning to 1:33 of OST Track 7 (i.e. just the acapella choral part)
    7) We Go Together: Entirety of OST Track 9
    8) The Final Saber Duel: Everything from 1:16 to end of OST Track 10 (inc. Leia's death)
    9) Battle of the Resistance: Entirety of OST Track 13 -- rare and welcome to get a piano version of an entire action cue like this, even if it translates quite questionably to piano...
    10) Farewell: Entirety of OST Track 16
    11) Reunion: Entirety of OST Track 17
    12) A New Home: Entirety of OST Track 18
    13) The Force is With You: Entirety of OST Track 15. Odd way to end the album...

    It's annoying that certain titles get stunning 4K UHD remasters but the old problematic Blu-ray masters keep getting recycled (e.g. Predator, first couple of Harry Potters) while other titles get the newer transfers on BD too (Star Wars Saga). What, did they press too many copies of the BD discs and they need to shift them?

    The Age of Innocence (1993)
    The mannered decadence of the Gilded Age as seen through a sumptuous early 90s lens. One of Martin Scorsese's best.  This is not exactly an easy kind of movie to pull off well, but he hits all the right notes and the camera is always pointed with purpose.    
    Cinematography is fabulous.  The score is a classic.  And the main performances are stirring, building on the supporting cast's very solid foundation.  Daniel Day-Lewis is electric.  Michelle Pfeiffer is resplendent.   And Winona Ryder hits just the right notes as the sympathetic,  innocent bride who is not as naive and powerless as she first seems.
    Full marks.
    4/4

    A simplistic plot just to justify the use of special effects.

    Malick is one of my favourite directors too.
    Haven't seen this yet, but I'm planning to.
    But most of all I'm so looking forward to his next movie about the life or something of Christ.
    Imagine that Malick movie with a John Williams score! I think it would be something sublime!

    A Hidden Life
     
    Malick is one of my favorite directors ever, and he doesn't disappoint here, with this beautiful, melancholic and spiritual study about faith, suffering and love (for another person and for/by God). 
     
    Non-Malick fans can be turned off by the Christian themes and the way he frames his movies like they're meditations and a chain of thoughts instead of trying to reproduce the real life. Everyone speak in monologues, like they're just avatars for Malick to reproduce his own internal musings inside his mind.
     
    Cinematography is not exactly iconic like Lubezski's contributions for the director, but newcomer Joerg Wiedmann still makes the movie wonderful to watch. Every frame of it could be on the favorite shots thread.
     
    JNH score works great in the movie alongside the classical selections, and absolutely should've been nominated last year. In terms of impact on the movie, it's indeed his best work in years.

    The Piano
     
    You know, I've been avoiding this film like the plague for many years now. I've been enamoured by Nyman's score, but was afraid of the potentially schmaltzy melodrama it accompanies. Because you know, the film has a reputation. And popular "romantic" films with a log-line like this one's couldn't possibly rise above Oscar-bait drivel, right? But it popped up, so I finally decided to give it a go, and I was pleasantly surprised. One, it's ridiculous how God-smackingly beautiful it all is. Gorgeously framed eye-candy (all those trees!). Second, Hunter speaks volumes through her face and body. Once the film veers away from traditional period romance tropes into more voyeuristic territory, there are all sorts of delicious little enigmas that reveal themselves. And Nyman's score, contrary to what I expected, does indeed help elevate the material, rather than sink it into sentimentality. Cliché as it may be to admit it, there is definitely a haunting quality that lingers to its final frame. It's a shame Campion didn't have the balls to cut out Ada's bookend monologues though. It does a disservice to the enigma of this woman. Her silence just tells us so much more.
