  1. Love the main title. Haven't seen the movie yet, though. For me, the score is a solid 3,5.
  2. That's one release I completely forgot about for some reason. I have the OST album, which I like well enough. Not sure whether to get the expanded version, though... Whatchoo guys think? Should I spend 30-40 bucks on this? Right now, with the whole world apparently having turned upside down, everything seems so pointless. The last JW CD I bought was Far and Away!
  3. Yeah, love this scene. Munich actually features some of the fanciest and most complex single Spielberg shots ever... I know many don't know this. There's another shot which takes place inside a car with the assassins sitting inside (making use of the rear view mirror), which stuck in my mind.
  4. I too still have the original diorama packaging somewhere, but I took out the CD and put it in a regular jewel case long ago. No way am I gonna slide the CD into the cardboard folder, where it can easily get scratched!
  5. That diorama sure was the worst idea in the long sad history of bad ideas!
  6. This is a joke, right? They don't sound anything alike.
  7. Covid-19 is, of course, a subject unto itself. The US film industry should really be the last of most Americans' concern right now, what with the country being increasingly engulfed in chaos and violence, ugly politics and racial division, on top of the virus... Indeed. But man, that's a bit shocking. How time flies. Somehow I doubt that. First of all the US economy won't take another 2 years of this. It would totally decimate the country (which already has a debt of like 24 trillion). The Great Depression would look like a day at the beach in comparison. I think it'll be over by the end of the year (or beginning of next year), one way or another. Not really. It's about Williams and Spielberg. Nobody doubts that Spielberg will make more movies, and Williams will in all likelihood score a few more movies too. The only question is, will there be another project that would suit them both? Especially now that we know that a Spielberg movie doesn't automatically mean a Williams score anymore!
  8. Well, that's my question. Will that happen, do you think, or not?
  9. Indy 5 may be a hope, but I'm not sure about that at all. Remember how long it took to even make KotCS happen! I hope I'm wrong, but I'm starting to feel that The Post was indeed the last. What do you think?
  10. I meant whether the performance conducted by JW was recorded...
  11. For a long time after I heard the alternate version, I couldn't decide what to make of it. I was so used to the original. This new opening seemed somehow too loud, too over-the-top, too jarring. However, you almost get used to anything. Now I totally get what Williams was trying to do... Anyway, I like them both, but the alternate version seems more powerful and also more original Williams (and not Steiner)! Of course just an intro insert. The main is exactly the same. But that doesn't bother me at all. Has it been recorded at all? Is it on YouTube?
  12. On the LLL release of The Lost World. Sure, the difference is only in the first 14 seconds or so, but still - I feel like John Williams himself couldn't decide which version he likes better, that's why he recorded them both. The first, original version (with the timpanis) is clearly an hommage to Max Steiner's King Kong. However, the alternate version strikes me as a bit more "badass," wilder, more aggressive, and ultimately exciting - hence these days I prefer this version over the original. That said, in any case, this piece is one of the most exciting and awesome from the latter part of John Williams's career! Absolutely love it.
