  1. Now that you mention it, hell yes ! Best music ever written in appreciation of Mrs. Connelly.
  2. Everywhere, not many composers can write something as devastatingly emotional and powerful as that. One of my favorite cues by the man. Despite all the despicable things the director did in real life, the movie's a bit of a gem, one that I like to revisit. The last scene has me in tears every time.
  3. One thing's for sure, this board has a LOT less useless posts since a few weeks...
  4. As much as I love the complete score, that sounds like overkill.
  5. I watched the movie again recently. Its balls to the walls action sequences are the stuff of legend, and for that it remains big fun. But man, does the score annoy me... Why did it have to be another onslaught of noise for 90 % of the film? I honestly was hoping that George Miller had more sense than that. And the 10% where it calms down isn't exactly my cup of tea either. I don't even remember those gentler moments. At least Mad Max 3 had a nice theme, and some genuinely well scores scenes. I'm not a big fan of Maurice Jarre in general, but he gave the film some musical character. The new one is just loud for the sake of sounding ridiculously overblown and causing headaches.
  6. You said it Quintus. There's nothing hateful about ID4. Simply too much fun to be had with it, provided one doesn't take it too seriously. If I look at blockbusters now compared to the ones made during my youth... Well, I know which ones I prefer.
  7. I've listened to several Horners since his accident... and to me he remains alive through his wonderful music. It was like that with Jerry too and it will be like that with Johnny. But I'll be absolutely devastated the day the inevitable happens (and the days after), I won't deny that.
  8. Oh yeah, very much looking forward to these. I still love everything about the first film and its wonderfully designed universe. The Cameron fanboy in me has spoken.
  9. Yeah, what's up with that, some strange decisions here ! And don't get me started on Jar Jar's theme appearing in track 5... This does not bode well.
  10. Just two cues of another stellar soundtrack. Like Civilization V and Civilization Beyond Earth, everything I've heard these guys (Knorr, Curran, Kirkhope) put out is amazing. Majestic is the right word ! Just ignore the ambient cues.
  11. Young was asked to score the now in production second film, but would only agree to do it the production company releases the scores to both films. So we'll be getting the sequel score a bit sooner then. I think I read that on FSM.
  12. Bespin, I have that last one, the double-disc set. It sounds tremendous! I especially love Williams conducting The Planets, what a performance ! For me, it beats the other one I have (Dutoit, Montréal Symphony).
  13. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a charming and fun film, but for excellence in film-making Empire Strikes Back is untouchable bollemanneke. You'll just have to deal with that fact.
  14. Even though I have The Planets with another orchestra / conductor, to have one conducted by JW is something I couldn't pass up.
  15. Comedy cannot be funnier than what happens in that film (thanks to those 6 geniuses).
