  1. It's so close I can almost taste it. To think that this next time last week I wasn't going (had hoped that London might reappear) and now I am going to experience a weekend of John Williams live in person for the first time. Wow. My bank balance may have taken an unexpected hit, but in the end I couldn't let the maestro pay a visit to Europe and not be there.
  2. Count me in. Last minute decision to attend but thankfully I've managed to get tickets and I'm all booked up.
  3. Indeed. Their connection is one of the reasons why this film (in my mind at least) is a good fit for Bear.
  4. 10 LLL releases for me this year, plus 2 on the maybe list... Pick of the bunch for me is the Disaster Movie Soundtrack Collection - never owned any of them before, 2nd hand prices were ridiculous so this was an unexpected delight.
  5. This was great! A much more satisfying end to a trilogy than other performances seen in December... Part 1 - 20th October 2017 https://www.royalalberthall.com/about-the-hall/news/2017/october/photos-and-reactions-michael-giacchino-celebrates-with-a-very-special-birthday-concert/ Part 2 - 18th October 2019 https://www.royalalberthall.com/about-the-hall/news/2019/october/exclusive-pictures-david-arnold-and-michael-giacchino-face-off-in-hope-of-settling-the-score/ Part 3 - 20th December 2019 https://www.royalalberthall.com/about-the-hall/news/2019/december/exclusive-pictures-our-first-ever-christmas-variety-show-with-michael-giacchino-and-friends/ Plus, who knew David Arnold could sing?
  6. I came across the above on youtube where this video from 2017 makes an interesting case for Rey being a Palpatine. When it came to the bit about the music I wondered if/when anyone from here had talked about the connections between the themes and was pleased to find this thread! It does of course seem to be unlikely that Williams was given pre-emptive knowledge of Rey's heritage before he wrote her theme, although it would be interesting to get a definitive answer from the man himself.
  7. Got to see this at Wembley Arena on Thursday. Couldn't turn down the chance to see Elfman perform live and he didn't disappoint. All the singers were great, Catherine O'Hara and Ken Page also reprised their roles from the film. The film is a bit light at only 76 minutes so they packed it out with a bit of a suite beforehand set to Tim Burton's original sketches and artwork, a Sandy Cameron led violin medley and an encore of Elfman performing Oogie Boogie's Song. Elfman's voice sounded great but also it was great to see him really get into the performance physically, inhabiting the character so well. All in all, a really fun night. You could tell that lots of people in the crowd really, really love this film - plenty of cosplay!
  8. Seen this earlier at the Royal Albert Hall. Wow. Following that, both film and score have grown in my estimation. It could be the best John Williams film score. So important to the movie and so heartfelt. A great experience. The only one of these live to projection concerts I've seen that truly rivals the feels I got from watching this was the finale in Close Encounters. Truly brilliant, not to be missed if you get the chance.
  9. Was really good. Giacchino's Trek and Star Wars are underrated. Also, Reeves was there to confirm Giacchino for The Batman (with a funny proposal bit). Overall a good night's music. The 'rounds' were paired up nicely with a common theme/concept, there was a fun sea shanty singalong and a rousing finish with Independence Day and Star Trek. Giacchino and Arnold put on a great show. Will be back for Giacchino's Christmas show in December for sure!
  10. Thanks @toothless. Was able to use this online after all. Have purchased a ticket to see E.T. in December!
  11. Look what arrived today. The US release date is tomorrow. The tea leaves say yes, but I guess we'll find out tomorrow what LLL have in store for us!
