  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.
  13. I could be completely off track here, but I don't believe they are that "serious" (as in something seriously wrong that requires surgery). I just imagine at 83 writing and conducting for TFA is taking a lot out of him and requires him to rest whenever he is not working on it. Also standing up there for an hour and a half while only taking a few short breaks here and there is probably tedious for a man half his age so I can understand Williams no longer being able to. I hope he does something like with the LA performance; I loved how he got up there to conduct the Imperial March. It was very classy move IMO.
  14. That was absolutely wonderful. I would have absolutely loved to have seen that in person. C'mon America you're slacking. Anyone find that choosing the Finale to E.T. an interesting choice to celebrate (what I believe was) France's Independence Day?
  15. How is the lawn seating? I'm debating about driving up with my boyfriend then driving back down right after the concert. However, don't want to make the drive if it is not worth it.
  16. He made an appearance at the concert? I wanted to go originally but couldn't afford it at the time, so I was a happy to hear he wasn't able to make it (although very concerned). However, that program looks fabulous. Even without Williams I'm sure it was wonderful.
  17. I believe I sent it to the Boston address and got a signed photo back from him but that was about 4-5 years ago now.
  18. I'm so glad you said this because since it was announced I assumed it was for 2015 and kept wondering why ticket information hasn't been released yet. Well that explains it, haha. Yeah this is really far in advance. Plenty of time to clear my not busy calendar!
  19. For some reason I thought it was much earlier than December that tickets went on sale because I remember buying them during my Women in Antiquity class, haha.
  20. I was wondering when they were going to announce his Boston dates. I went to see him up in Boston two Springs ago, in May, and it was a fabulous concert with a full Williams program. I am guessing they are not doing that concert this year? Bummer, I was really looking forward to it. Regardless, I will be there for this one if it's his only show on the East Cost in 2015.
  21. Yes can we please do Saturday! I would think that would be most convenient for everyone
