Score_Fan reacted to Josh500 in Which do you prefer? "Across the Stars" or "Rey's Theme"?
I suspect one reason why Rey's Theme appears so "fresh" (whatever that word means in this context) to some people is that it is very new, released only last year, as opposed to AtS, which was released 14 years ago!
I love both themes, don't get me wrong, but the gorgeously haunting and heartbreakingly tragic "Across the Stars," slightly over the top and theatrical, is an instant classic. After 14 years, I still don't tire of it, and I'm still impressed by it. The performance from LSO is second to none.
Score_Fan reacted to Thor in Which do you prefer? "Across the Stars" or "Rey's Theme"?
Same here. Absolutely no competiton. "Across the Stars" all the way -- the most unashamedly romantic and glorious theme this side of "Tara's Theme" from GONE WITH THE WIND. I'm rather shocked to see "Rey's Theme" so far ahead in the polls. It's a fine theme, don't get me wrong, but it's not even in my Top 10 in the last 10 years.
Score_Fan reacted to Mr. Breathmask in The John Williams Jurassic Park Collection from La-La Land MUSIC Discussion
Well, to be honest, Jurassic Park III is indeed a piece of shit movie.
Score_Fan reacted to Richard Penna in The John Williams Jurassic Park Collection from La-La Land MUSIC Discussion
I rather like JP3 the movie, but aside from that, I agree. I've never really been drawn that much to Giacchino's score outside of the major highlights, whereas Davis' score is full of awesome moments. Certainly I think he's the better action composer, although I think Giacchino's main theme is better.
Now if Davis had come back for JW, that would've been potentially awesome in my book.

I would say essentially the same, but reverse JP3 with JW. Giacchino wrote some fantastic music, but Don Davis composing was so sublime to JP3, which is more than the pos movie deserved.

Both scores deserve 5 stars, obviously.
They're different, though, because the movies are different
Score_Fan got a reaction from Amer in Michael Giacchino's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) - 2022 Expanded Edition now available
Well, to hear Michael's score isn't great is disappointing, but not shocking. He did only have about 2 months to compose and conduct, after all.
Score_Fan got a reaction from Incanus in Jurassic Park and The Lost World Complete Release coming from LaLa-Land Records on 29th of November
This is one of the best releases of a score ever, many thanks to LLLR!
Score_Fan got a reaction from artguy360 in Anakin's B-Theme- Episode 1
Okay, so on Wookiepedia, for "Enter, Lord Vader" apparently there is "A rendition of Anakin's "B-theme", first heard in Episode I, and associated with Shmi's Theme, plays after the opening percussion". Where in the score for TPM can this be heard? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
Score_Fan got a reaction from Sharkissimo in Top 10 STILL UNRELEASED John Williams cues
"You bred Raptors?"
"The trouble with Dennis"
Untitled JP cue
The T-Rex / High Hide
The micro-edited out portion of The never-feast
Dark Dreams- (POA)
Saving Sarah - full cue
Mostly minor cues, but still very effective ones at that.
Score_Fan got a reaction from Not Mr. Big in The Amazing Spider-man 2 (2014 Film)
Yeah, cause crying when :
Your Uncle is shot
Your best friend is killed
The love of your life dumps you
You face hardships in your family life
Rather have Spider-Man crying than doing that bullshit wailing Garfield did in TASM. Franco was fine, and one of the best things about SM3. Same goes for Dafoe. But hey, maybe some people like pointless/ soulless beat for beat remakes with an uninteresting villain.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Patrick Doyle
I find his solo entry into the Potter series to be ridiculously underrated. His voldemort theme is awesome, and something I wish Desplat/Hooper had included in the sequels, the trwizarding task cues are triumphant, and epic, without pushing it; and Harry In Winter is still one of the best cues of the series.

Addams Family & Addams Family Values. (Marc Shaiman)
I'd love to see LLL do a expanded / complete release of these scores. I find these to be underrated works for Shaiman.
