    If you can't see that Signs outclasses all but the last one you mentioned then you're, well, Thor I suppose.

    I used to have fun skipping chapters and using my mouse and pointer on my slow 4× DVD-ROM drive on my 1998 Compaq Presario 5260 PC.

    Dixon Hill got a reaction from SteveMc in What is the last piece of classical music you listened to?   
    Last thing I listened to was a rough read through this morning of a large scale piece I'm working on for alto flute, harp, viola, and bass.  After listening to some students talk at length about their own very innovative works in progress I was feeling like quite a square to be doing something so academic by comparison.  Much to my surprise they found my music engaging and "trippy" so perhaps I've still got it.

    Return of the Jedi is good. A rousing finale with some of the trilogy's most memorable scenes and exchanges. The teddies don't ruin the whole thing for me like they do for others. I'm just not emotionally attached enough to the whole thing to really be bothered.
     
    Had this exact discussion on here a million times.

    The Asteroid Field is great but the Coruscant chase is totally ace.  I definitely prefer it to most of his earlier action sequences.  There's an overwhelming sense that the music is just pouring out of him and it is groovy as fuck.

    You forgot Mace Windu vs. Darth Sidious.
     
     
    I like most of them but I'm partial to the one in The Phantom Menace. It was very cool to watch in the cinema and more epic than anything we'd seen in the old movies from the moment they ceremoniously drop their cloaks and put their swords up. It's far more exciting and aggressive than the rather clunky old fights and combined with the music, just got everyone in the theater so pumped up.

    ROTS end credits are about 300 bars.  Seems to fit.  Taping that stuff together is surprisingly hard, one wrong move really screws you up.
     
     
    The effort behind this is inspiring.  Making gifs still eludes me.

    Dixon Hill reacted to Disco Stu in The Classical Music Recommendation Thread   
    Blast from the distant past.
     
    This is a letter to the editor that Aaron Copland wrote to the New York Times when he was 24 years old, defending the music of Gustav Mahler from the critics.  He really knew his Mahler!
