  1. And Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor! I definitely agree with McGregor, he made an excellent Obi-Wan. Honestly, I think he is the only reason I like the prequels.
  2. As someone who was a Newbie when she was like 12 years old, some of you guys were assholes! Also I was 12 and an idiot, but that's not the point . A couple people were rude but for the most part everyone was nice. However, there were a few posts I read that made me not check the forum for a while because I was taken aback. Don't be an asshole to the newbies! Give them 50 posts, then be an asshole.
  3. For some reason a lot of the videos/mp3 files that were posted from sites other than youtube weren't loading so I couldn't hear/see most of them. However, when scrolling through this I immediately thought of this song. I love these two so much. Why can't we have artists like them today? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xum6ULWbIX0
  4. As I am watching it right now! And Stefan it was 60% sarcasm haha.
  5. This is an excellent thread topic because I always appreciate these little moments but I don't think it has ever been brought up other than here or there so it is nice to have an entire thread dedicated to it. I do find it very interesting that a lot of the ones everyone is mentioning are from the Star Wars scores.
  6. It is only 40 minutes away from my house so I am incredibly excited about this, especially now that you guys said that I can sit facing Williams! If single tickets go on sale end of August when do you think non-single tickets will go on sale? Fingers crossed that his back is better by then!
  7. One of John Williams' best ever tracks if you ask me. And a good companion piece: 01:33 - 01:58 I agree with both of these! When I was listening to Bloodboal's clip I immediately thought of those few seconds in the Battle Over Coruscant, which is such a great opening piece.
  8. Even if he doesn't conduct his own concerts I would love more guest appearances. Did you guys watch Great Performances? Watching his reactions to all the praise the conductor was giving him was just so heart warming and you could tell he truly is such a humble man and truly loves what he does. Again, just having him conduct a few of his signature pieces at a concert would be absolutely wonderful. Of course I'm being completely selfish and his health is so much more important, but seeing him perform live in concert is just such an incredible experience I'd hate to see that end.
  9. I really like AotC as compared to other overall film scores, but it's just not on the same level as the other Star Wars scores. Sharky, I haven't listened to RotJ in quite some time, so I'll have to go back and look. I know I absolutely love the second CD of the Special Edition especially the Battle of Endor tracks. I want to say it's a few of the longer titled tracks (i.e The Emperor Arrives/The Death of Yoda/Obi-Wan's Revelation) where it'll start off in a lull and then would pick back up with the Death of Yoda, and then die back down with Obi-Wan's Revelation. I don't know whether or not that's the track I'm thinking of, I was just using that one in particular as an example. I'll go back and listen while I'm working on my paper tonight.
  10. ESB SW RotS RotJ PM Across the Stars (The rest of AotC never happened) The reason I rate RotS higher than RotJ is because there are some lull moments in RotJ, I think in the track "The Emperor Arrives" for example. I love every minute of RotS and how it captures the dark and ominous feel of the movie. It's opening sequence is my second favorite after SW. RotJ has much more beautifully written and rememberable pieces like Luke and Leia and the entire last 20 minutes of it. If some of those lull moments in RotJ didn't exist I would rank it higher than RotS.
  11. In the future, I would love that even if he did not conduct the entire concert that he would still attend and conduct some of his signature pieces. I'll deal with Lockhart as long as Williams conducts at least half of the show.
  12. I don't know why but I absolutely love this part of the Battle of Hoth in Empire, such a great climatic moment (4:01-4:23). I have not watched Empire in quite some time but I do believe this part is not in the actual movie itself, but I could be wrong. One goosebumps moment that comes to mind right now is this part of Revenge of the Sith which is actually not on the OST (which kills me). Someone on youtube must agree with me on how great this moment is because they made a short video of just it. It kinda cuts off the beginning part that's not on the OST but you all get the idea. Actually while I was looking for the last clip I was watching this video trying to find the right cue and watching it reminded me that this entire scene is a goosebumps moment for me. I know some people are not huge fans of the movie and the score (as compared to the original trilogy), however, I think that this is one of the best examples in the entire Star Wars Saga that shows Williams' brilliance in writing a piece that gives the scene the exact feel that Lucas wanted the audience to feel while watching it. I know I have many others, however, Star Wars ones are only coming to mind right now.
