  1. Five months of silence on the Potter front and a model of Hogwarts is the only thing we have to discuss here? I miss the old days.
  2. To be honest, there are dozens of Williams OSTs that I haven't picked up yet, so I'm nowhere near the stage where I need re-releases or expanded releases. There is too much great music out there on the marketplace as it is (and I'm not just talking film scores) - I'll never have time to appreciate it all.
  3. Fawkes the Phoenix is one of my favorite themes and was the impetus for me purchasing the entire Chamber of Secrets OST in the first place. The bridge is a little flighty, but as the theme is written for a bird, it fits perfectly. In any case, the build from the bridge back into the climactic statement of the A-theme is all the more powerful because of it. I get goosebumps every time. I rate the other themes from the OST in the 2-4 range, with Lockhart's "No Ticket" theme being my least favorite. It's still a strong score (as is AOTC, by the way), though not the most original or the best Williams has written. PoA is clearly a cut above, even though I prefer Fawkes to any of the new themes in PoA.
  4. The real Deathly Hallows Part II score written by Williams. (Still holding out hope.)
  5. RIP I'll listen to Feed the Birds today in his honor. Mary Poppins is probably my favorite Disney movie.
  6. The last time we had a discussion about this, my vote for both best film and score was TLC. Since I've already explained my love for that film several times, I won't bother rehashing. What has changed since then (it's been a couple of years) is my preference for TOD over KOTCS. I still like KOTCS about as much (I've only seen it once, in the theater - I've been holding out to watch all four on Blu-ray). However, my opinion of TOD has improved after watching it again last year. The opening "Anything Goes" sequence alone is enough to put it above KOTCS. Also, I appreciate Willie, Short Round, and the overall darkness of TOD much more now that I'm a bit older.
  7. The End Credits for Revenge of the Sith on the OST might fit this category. It's a good one - I never want that track to end.
  8. I have heard of a couple of examples of this happening. For example, I remember seeing a behind-the-scenes video where the composer of the X-Files theme said it was set to the imaginary lyrics, "X-Files is a show . . . with music by Mark Snow." That was probably a joke, though. You could find this pattern in virtually any theme, though. ("Gone WIIITH the Wind, Gone WIIIIITH then Wind!")
  9. @OneBuckFilms I don't doubt that what you're saying is true, but to use a sports analogy, even though you may acknowledge that the other team deserves it more, you're still disappointed when your team loses the Super Bowl or the World Cup or whatever. As a JW fan, I feel like John Williams is my "team" and I will always root for him to win.
  10. JW's loss was not unexpected, but still disappointing. War Horse is one of the most beautiful scores I've heard in years. I can't say anything against the Artist, since I haven't seen it or heard the score, but JW definitely earned his nominations this year.
  11. Seems like it would be hard to tell just by looking at a "1" / "I" as it quickly scrolls by.
  12. Speaking of which, I take it that since, despite multiple mentions of him in this thread, Mark has not shown his face, he really isn't continuing to lurk like I assumed he was. Either that or has excellent self-control as continues to lurk without commenting.
