  1. RIP. She takes an entire era of Hollywood history with her, but she lived a long and interesting life. I can't imagine any of the adults making Captain Blood would have imagined that they would live to see the 85th anniversary of that film.
  2. Sad news. One of the greatest film composers of all time. What an amazing legacy he leaves behind. RIP
  3. I'm afraid I must admit that I've neither seen Rambo III nor heard the score. I'll have to check it out.

  5. Some of my favorites that (I don't think) have been mentioned yet: Trouble in Paradise Sherlock, Jr. Harold and Maude What We Do in the Shadows The Ladykillers
  6. That Hollywood Reporter article says that there are DGA rules that forbid replacing a fired director with another member of the existing crew, so presumably they'd have to find a way to get around that if they want Kasdan.
  7. A lot of fun. That first scene on the airplane is hilarious!
  8. Bedknobs and Broomsticks and Pete's Dragon, please!
  9. Yes, but my understanding is that the interpretation of the music on the 3,400 year old tablets from Ugarit is still pretty controversial, and the tablets aren't complete. My understanding is that the interpretation of the Epitaph and the Greek Delphic Hymns from around the same period is less controversial. So if you're looking for the oldest notated music that we have, it might well be the Ugarit tablets, but if you're looking for the oldest notated music that we can actually reconstruct today with a high level of confidence , my understanding is that it's those examples of the 2,000 year old Greek music.
  10. One of the oldest is supposedly the Epitaph of Seikilos, carved on a tombstone in modern day Turkey roughly 2,000 years ago.
  11. I guess I owe George Lucas an apology for laughing at Ep III. Rest in peace, Carrie and Debbie. Thanks to Carrie for talking about her mental health problems so openly, and thanks to Debbie for saving all of those props and costumes from silent and Golden Age films. What an awful week for that family.
  12. Amy was a good film, but I was sad to see Joshua Oppenheimer lose another Oscar to another music documentary. The Act of Killing and The Look of Silence are two of the most captivating documentaries I've ever seen.
  13. Yes it's from the cue "Imperial Cruiser Pursuit" when the Falcon escapes from Mos Eisley.
  14. We know Williams didn't write the trailer music because it uses Han Solo and the Princess and Williams doesn't remember writing that theme.
  15. Of those that haven't been mentioned, I'd add: Oliver! Cabaret Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
