  1. Very sad news. Mr. Horner will live on through the music he left behind. I'm currently listening to this track:
  2. A user at FSM claims that James Horner's assistant has confirmed that Horner was the pilot. Sad and unexpected.
  3. I missed out on the first pressing. I look forward to owning it. I love the film and Williams' contribution. "It's OK with me."
  4. I recently purchased these albums, partly due to SAE's sale on FSM titles. VIEW FROM POMPEY'S HEAD/BLUE DENIM (Bernstein/Herrmann) ON DANGEROUS GROUND (Herrmann) JOY IN THE MORNING (Herrmann) WHITE WITCH DOCTOR (Herrmann) HOUSE OF USHER (Baxter) THE BLUE MAX (Goldsmith)
  5. Indeed. I'd also add NEKROMANTIK. It's just not right.
  6. Looking forward to this one. Nice year for Herrmann, so far, with OBSESSION (Music Box), OBSESSION (Tadlow), BENEATH THE 12 MILE REEF (Kritzerland) and THE EGYPTIAN (LaLaLand). I'm hoping for more of those 20th Century Fox scores from Kritzerland, especially THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR and HANGOVER SQUARE.
  7. I hope the film has quality costume and makeup effects, comparable to the great work done in THE EWOK ADVENTURES films.
  8. They better erase that wooden scaffold under the bridge or I won't be happy! But it's the highest quality lumber from Endor.
  9. To be fair, the Giacchino music in the scene is already pretty comedic. Yeah, that may have had a lot to do with it. Add that to the people in the control room acting like it's a video game rather than a serious problem. I think I would have rather seen a director like Neil Blomkamp or Brad Bird behind this film, rather than Treverrow. I was excited for it at one point, but now it's beginning to look like a turd.
  10. There's really isn't anything thrilling about this scene. Compare it to the T-Rex's escape in the original film. Actually, this clip plays more like something from a comedy. They should replace Giacchino's inaudible music with the Benny Hill theme.
  11. That's my favorite STAR WARS film. Does anyone else think that this may be the last STAR WARS flick that Williams committs to? I get the feeling that he stepped in to introduce the new series, but will hand the baton off to another composer after this one.
  12. Been listening to LaLaLand's THE EGYPTIAN. Fine contributions from both Herrmann and Newman. This is the first time I've heard the score in full. Williams' music for the final scene in CLOSE ENCOUNTERS reminds me a bit of Herrmann's "Prelude".
  13. Wasn't Williams one of Newman's mentors? I recall reading something like that. Maybe I'm just pulling that out of my ass, though, and have no idea what I'm talking about. I'm not sure. I like Thomas Newman, for the record.
  14. I lol'd at some of the posts in this thread, especially this one: Although that link uses the same statement from the SD Symphony's site, his post was written as if he found some ground-breaking article that revealed grim details about John Williams' health. I wish John Williams the best. My sympathy to those who bought tickets and aren't able to see him perform. Total bummer.
  15. This forum, by far, has some of the greatest discussion threads ever. It's nice to be a part of a community with a genuine sense of humor.
  16. And so it will be known as "The 'S' Trilogy"? SPECTRE 2PECTRE SPECTR3
  17. Great cast. And good news about Thomas Newman returning to score.
  18. THE TERMINAL (2004) Most people regard this as a Spielberg fluff film. If you take out the Diego Luna/Zoe Saldana love story, which is totally ridiculous and underdeveloped, then this film is brilliant, in my opinion. There's plenty of great humor (Tom Hanks' mispronounciation of words in a thick European accent) and I think the drama between Viktor and Amelia is romantic and incredibly realistic. The best aspect of the film is the main character NOT getting the girl, especially with two A-list actors in these roles. It worked well, and isn't something you'd expect to find in a feel-good Spielberg film. I also think the film says a lot about US immigration policy and how we treat people from other countries, which makes it relevant today, more than when it was produced (2-3 years after 9/11). Furthermore, there is the great cinematography by Kaminski and a terrific score by John Williams. This is one of my top Spielberg films, ranking right below CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, DUEL and JAWS.
