    Howard Shore gave a talk at a small community center just north of NYC, and I had the pleasure of meeting the man himself after, who was willing to sign all three of my “Lord of the Rings: The Complete Recordings” vinyl boxes! I still can’t believe it - absolute dream come true!!!
     
    This also means I have the vinyl soundtracks of two of the greatest trilogies of all time signed by their legendary composers (see last picture), which is just completely bonkers.
     
    Pinching myself!

    The Hobbit is that bad!
     
     
    I disagree. The Hobbit films feel like they're set in a very different and in my opinion, nastier world than LOTR.
     
     
    ^ Absolutely this.
     
     
    Stuff like stealing the theme from Air Force One?
     
     
    Maybe on paper...
     
     
    I disagree completely. I couldn't relate to a single one of these characters. They're all selfish, mean, distrustful and oddly none of them have any real conviction. "Oh, we couldn't get the secret door in the side of the mountain to open within the first 10 minutes of trying, guess we should all just pack up and live as nomads and vagrants again! Oh well..."

    I don't think I'll be even watching season 2. These days it takes a massively well received and buzzed show to make me sit down and watch it for 8-10 hours. My free time is way too short and these days I prefer spending what (very) little leisure moment I happen to have reading comic books and playing videogames.
     
    But I'll surely listen to the albums - yeah, in plural, please don't go the Mandalorian route of one album per episode on S1 and then one album per 3 or 4 episodes or whatever on later seasons.

    I am excited to hear what Bear does with the scores. The show itself I am not that bothered about.

    What a dumb idea for a movie.
      
     
    Really? I'm kind of baffled that you feel this way Mr. "Star Wars was complete and needed no further follow ups or spin offs after Return of the Jedi."
     
     
    Uhh... No.
     
     
    That may explain why you don't want more!

    To steal from Samuel Johnson's quip about London, if one is tired of Shore's Lord of the Rings, one is tired of life.

    Not really. A few dozen pages, if you add it all up, at most. Maybe not even that, if you really look at it. Sketches, really, and like ROP and War of the Rohirrim, most of the story will essentially have to be made up. Anyone who tells you otherwise hasn't even glanced at the Appendices. 
     
    The stories have been told. By Tolkien. 
     
    If you want a story almost wholly made up by screenwriters, fair enough. But that's all it is.
