    I'm working on a model of the Washington National Cathedral right now, but hopefully once that is done, I can focus on a large scale Monkey Island themed display I've been planning. Really great job on those minifigs
     
     
    I do like the one on the far left, it reminds of the flowing beard in Secret of Monkey Island, although I do get you're going more for Lechuck's look in MI2. I still have hope something Monkey Island related gets approved on LEGO Ideas, so we can finally get some official Monkey Island figures, but in the meantime, I think I will steal the design of your MI2 Guybrush, looks great

    Romão got a reaction from Jay in Film scores better than The Phantom Menace   
    I hate ranking things. The Phantom Menace is a great score on its own terms. No need to rank it or compare it to any other

    I love how JW conveys the feeling of place of Naboo and Coruscant by orchestral color alone. It's not even thematic. But you know immediatly where you are. It's one of the greatest fantasy scores ever written, in my view

    Perfect time to revisit this score. A bit like the film, I've always thought its highlights were absolutely terrific, but I will focus on the less showy passages

    That's the great Goldsmith magic, you can finish off all the orchestral heavyweights with trashy calypso fun á la Deep Rising. Which i'm about to do.

    As I wrote in another thread: Tintin 2 would be the ideal movie to do now with all the Mocap in controlled environments. I don‘t care if Jackson or Spielberg is director, just do the movie now, so Williams can start writing music!

    It's also notable for its unashamed heart on-its-sleeve (very Horner/Williams) that was not a Goldsmith routine. It really sighs in 'The Patches' (above).

    Night Crossing (Jerry Goldsmith) - I always forget how great this score is and how outright enjoyable it is. A great mix of Capricorn One and bold, tuneful 80s Jerry orchestral loveliness (synth free, I think). Always amused that it contains that that oscillating little string motif that appears in pretty much every bit of James Horner scoring in the 80s, plus the descending brass/woodwind motif... I always thought they original Hornerisms, but no... It's all over his Star Trek scores in particular.
     
    Night Crossing has extra special meaning as it was that score which I had signed when I met his Jerryness after an event at the London Film Festival (I think?) at the Museum of the Moving Image where he talked about The Edge with Lee Tamahori. I seem to recall Jerry having a dig about about the temp tracking, notably the opening titles which was tracked with The Last of the Mohicans. Pleasing that his actual main theme isn't really anything like Trevor Jones' memorable theme. I just wish I'd had enough foresight to tell Lee Tamahori to stay away from Bond films (Die Another Die... ugh).
