  1. Wow... that is an awful list. The only John Williams score that even gets an honorable mention is The Last Jedi, easily the weakest Star Wars score. No Shore, no Mansell. Mica Levi gets a nod, but for Jackie, not Under the Skin? Swiss Army Man? The quote from @Uni in my signature feels quite relevant.
  2. I haven't agreed with a Best Original Score pick since Return of the King.
  3. Two 2019 films on the list and neither of them is Clemency? Also, how is there only one von Trotta on there? There are a couple on there I would definitely not consider good movies, but they don't list Persepolis, Away from Her, or Bar Bahar? Oh well, 32/100 isn't bad I suppose.
  4. I think the credits said it was the Montreal Symphony. I really didn't find the film cliched at all. Also, just showing any of Clive Owen's scenes would be a significant spoiler.
  5. I fell for the Peter Cushing edition in Rogue One. That said, the only one of these I found visually convincing was Goldblum. Lucas' voice was spot-on though.
  6. I saw The Song of Names a couple days ago and... it's pretty much perfect. It's going to be really hard for anything (even The Rise of Skywalker) to supplant it as the best score of 2019.
  7. The Cell is even worse than Battle of the Five Armies. The Nostalgia Critic review should give you a basic idea, but honestly... even that doesn't get into just how bad it is.
  8. The Cell. I want to live in a world where Shore's score was written for a movie that deserves it.
  9. I once heard a second-hand quote from a Hollywood producer in the 1980s "Nobody who ever worked with Stanley Kubrick liked Stanley Kubrick." Doesn't mean he didn't make some tremendous films. Also, "It took Scatman Crothers 122 takes to get the pantry scene in The Shining." Jesus.
  10. I'd love to see the score for The Cell performed live... preferably without the movie. Also, it would be incredible to see the Kronos Quartet and Mogwai perform The Fountain together.
  11. Damn... I just saw the email they sent out about it this morning and already sold out.
