  1. Up and The Shape of Water are my picks. Up is a beautiful score that stands out in the film in several key scenes and it really forms the emotional core of the story.
  2. Yes, it's easier to eat when you're stuck in one place.
  3. I lost 23 kilos through dieting and exercising since just before Christmas. I think I've put on 3 kilos over easter and since starting my new job... sigh.
  4. We know Cuaron wanted something different which leads me to believe that if Williams had stayed on for all eight films, the themes introduced along the way would entirely be at the discretion of whichever filmmaker was onboard and whether Williams felt they were appropriate for the films. Williams did all nine Star Wars films and wasn't entirely consistent with when themes are introduced or if they'd ever return again...
  5. No, the construction of the new stage is happening next to the studios already there.
  6. If multiple series are being produced, Art Directors, Scholars etc. are needed, not just for early development, but to guide ongoing and future productions. All this change is coming as a result of the studios getting cold feet over whatever they produced in the pilot eps. Make no mistake, Amazon is going full-on Game of Thrones/ Witcher on this and will try everything in their power to make this show sell to the same audiences who wanted nudity, gore, excessive violence and grim/dark fantasy so dark it's depressing to watch and everything Lord of the Rings will be twisted and contorted to fit
  7. A few weeks ago I was given an opportunity to work in the film and television industry which it just so happens, thanks to covid, is booming in Australia right now as several big Hollywood films and shows are being made here. Godzilla vs. Kong was filmed here with Mortal Kombat, Batman, Thor Love and Thunder and other MCU films in production as we speak. Here in Melbourne where I am, they're building one of the largest studios in the Southern Hemisphere complete with stages made to hold pools for underwater filming! Needless to say, after all my years wanting to join this line of w
  8. Call of the Wild CD Solo Deluxe CD How to Train Your Dragon 2 CD
  9. Fuck the reality of a scene! Music if given room to breathe like it has in the past can say much more than sound effects could, it supports the narrative, can give momentum and size to action scenes or any moment in a film. When I see something explode, I can already imagine the sounds it will make because I've heard them a bazillion times before and these days instead of being immersed in a scene through sound design, I've become quite irritated that every second of a film is filled with noise that doesn't need to be there! I like sound effects, but when they cover u
  10. After watching the last three Kong related films, Peter Jackson's film is a masterpiece.
  11. How much was Williams' choice versus the editors is the question and how Abrams and any other creative on this film can tout Williams' involvement whilst simultaneously burying it under inane noises...
  12. Aside from the opening chimes, the first statement of her theme is marred by an obnoxious speeder sound effect in the film. That really pissed me off.
  13. The J.J. rewrite tidbit is crazy when considering the money involved, but not surprising after the Sequel Trilogy changes he forced upon Williams. This is one of my biggest issues with current blockbuster scores - esp. the Tom Holkenborg/Zimmer-types - there's a lot of noise going on and none of it really contributes anything to the picture and actively fights the sound effects which are already a symphony of catastrophe...
