  1. Or it was a throwaway quote Rowling said in the moment and when asked to clarify it, she will totally invent something, pull something out of her ass and then pass it off as her original meeting.
  2. I actually think they are very very very good. Some very good performances and most of all a very good selection of music. I discovered them through youtube suggestions too and I generally quite enjoy their performances. The thing of note is ofcourse the melodramatic conductor. He's too expressive as if he's giving a stage dramatic performance. But I don't mind as long as he gets good music out of the orchestra. I am trying to find it but for the life of me cannot find it - was it this same conductor or some other conductor - i saw a video of a performance - it was maybe the forrest gump theme - where the conductor hammed it up to the heavens - it was weirdly entertaining the watch - the performance was very good too. I thought it was this same conductor but I could be mistaken and I think it was forest gump but I could be mistaken about that too. But I remember the youtube comments section was full of comments about the conductor. I checked the comments section of the film symphony orchestra and I think they delete all their comments. They don't have comments on any of their videos it seems. I haven't been able to locate it but would love to watch that video again.
  3. This is so beautiful and lovely - I'd argue better than the famous vocal version as it delineates the melody so much better.
  4. Adapting a 70,000 word novel into a 160 minute movie with a light plot? Dear god somebody get me this writing gig. I have written screenplays recreationally and some that I hope will be produced some day and they are rather tricky and difficult to write. But by far, BY FAR, the biggest challenge is keeping the page count down and cutting and cutting and cutting. 160 mins for such a short novel is an outrageous luxury and honest to god almost anyone could do it. HP1 coasts by purely on the strength of its world building and elaborate production (and score). The screenplay is not something that stands out.
  5. This is true. Snyder Cut is made up bullshit. In the sense, a marketing coup. He marketed something that did not exist. Now he actually got somebody to pay for it. And now he's going to make up whatever the hell he wants and call it his original vision. We already saw this with the black suit. I am still curious to see it though to finally lay it to bed.
  6. That's just a minor deviation. Not enough to say Williams lied about it.
  7. Maybe I am thick but I guess I am not seeing where is the material lie. Film is made in fragments as it is. So even if some of the sequence was cut to the music, the story still stands right?
  8. So the actual truth is - 1. He recorded the 15 minute version of the final cue 2. And the editor cut the picture to what he recorded ?
  9. I know the story of course. What's the error? That the picture was NOT edited to the music?
  10. He doesn't always deliver but I might put him in Top 5 best theme writer we have in Hollywood today - with Williams and JNH and I might throw in Desplat and Elfman in there too.
  11. Why did there need to be a collaboration? Why didn't Gia write on his own? Or did they write separate cues?
  12. ALL interviews are boring today, period. The United States has destroyed free speech. Everybody is always on their guard today saying the proper and correct thing and nothing truly provocative or interesting ever slips out.
