    I've been making way way through this score this week in pieces during commutes and man, I'm discovering so much more about it than I even realized was in here.
     
    I feel like for a long time I only really noticed the Han A and B themes, Enfys Nest theme, and old JW themes from the old movies for the most part
     
    Now I hear Chewie's theme, Secrets, L337's theme, Qi'Ra's theme, etc all over the score. Not a lot of time goes by without one of the themes popping up, and they are always different renditions every time.

    This score is a real gem.  Boy, it's a shame Disney screwed up the marketing of the film and we aren't already on our way to finishing up a trilogy with this cast and composer by now

    Legends of the Fall is a great score.  I don't give a shit if it's restrained or not.

    Had that in my cart, but it vanished after I made an account. Grabbed the seat on the opposite corner - same angle, different side. See you there!

    Got my ticket, I'm in row B on the end in the orchestra section.  It won't be the best seat in the house, but it's close and was "only" $175.
     
    I've been to every concert he's held at David Geffen Hall, so couldn't miss this one!

    Wild hunch, but we may be looking at Something Wicked This Way Comes.
     
    1. The George Delerue rejected score (released before)
    2. The James Horner complete score
    3. The James Horner score album previously released
     
    If so, this would be quite interesting.

    Reissuing this also means that this will remain in LLL's License domain. 
     
    JP being a mega Williams seller will generate more revenue for LLL to sustain and release more Williams titles in the future.

    Does the "Young Leia" and "Days of Alderan" remind anyone else rather of Horner's Avatar music than of Star Wars music?

    Personally I think the specific nature of the work matters zero.  What it says about Obi-wan’s situation:  he’s doing menial labor for little to no pay, he’s skimming some off the side for his beast of burden, he’s doing nothing about a ruthless boss taking advantage of his needy workers, etc.  What he’s carving, how long he’s been doing it, etc. is something for the Star Wars Kenobi Visual Guide or whatever they’ll put out, or for the Wiki editors to piece together from seven different secondary sources. Who cares?

    I'll bash the shit out of scores I don't like on here but engaging with the composers directly to tell them you don't like their work is unthinkable to me.  Though never underestimate SW fans when it comes to crossing social boundaries.

    I was blown away by how great this was!. The way the camera movements and editing synced with the images was stunning.
    The best musical in.that regard since TOMMY.
    But, what really makes the film is the mythic stance it takes. You could call it ONCE UPON A TIME ON THE WEST SIDE.
    The underlying theme of a world being swept away by progress, of people and communities being dislocated by the forces of greed is so relevant.
    People asked why it was "necessary" to remake this film. The answer is the wonderful original was a contemporary story. The new version looks back with the  wisdom of hindsight.
    I loved this film!
    See my review for the answer 😄

    I don't quite understand what the issue is here -
     
    As TheUlyssesian said this was a vanity project for Spielberg.  Something he did for himself.  If that's the case what's the problem?  Everyone is getting paid, it's not going to kill Disney's bottom line, and maybe they'll get a few awards out of it.  What's the problem if Spielberg wanted to make it simply because he wanted to make it?  Do we forget that musicals have revivals all the time on Broadway and elsewhere?  Would you have the same criticism for the umpteenth revival of WSS or Les Misersables on Broadway?  Who asked for a new revival of The Music Man to be staged with stunt casting in place like Hugh Jackman (who is probably doing a great job).  
     
    There's no reason to complain about these things, they exist and people will find something to enjoy about them.  Sometimes you'll get lucky and find a large audience, sometimes it'll be a small one.  I can tell you as a music teacher I LOVED this interpretation of West Side Story and it has received near universal praise and good word of mouth within our music education communities.  Even if it was ONLY us that derived pleasure from this film I would say it was worth it.

    Both Ivanhoe and Julius Caesar have new discs in stock and will be on hand for a couple of months. Getting a replacement is pretty simple: Just contact Jeff through the site and request a new copy. f you originally purchased it from another outlet, just let them know. They should be able to provide you with the new copy as well. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy... or something like that.

    Can we talk about Bail Organa's scenes?
     
    They're easily some of my favorite.  His relationship as a father is utterly charming and heartwarming, a side of the character we knew was there, but never really got to see.  He's delightful with Leia, and it warmly reminds me of their relationship as performed in the legendary Star Wars Radio Drama.  I'm finally feeling like we got the Bail Organa I always wanted.  Jimmy Smits looks older here than 10 years later in Rogue One though.  Aging in Star Wars is all over the place, nothing new there.  Even Palpy looked older in AOTC then ROTS.
     
    If Carrie Fisher were alive, I think she would be so happy with this.
     
    And Joel Edgerton is also one of the high points.  He's believably more gruff and gristled after 10 years of adulting on Tatooine.  He's as compelling as Ewan, and we can thank George for casting characters that had such potential to age physically and as actors to embody their future selves.
     
    These bits were superb.
