  1. I would say after listening to Bear's scores for other TV series, like Outlander and The Walking Dead, he's particularly good at textural work - which is promising for Rings. Clearly, there's been some attempt to evoke Shore's approach in the two tracks that were released, but I'm still reeling that Shore didn't get to write for the series or provide more themes. I don't think we've heard a TV score as richly thematic as what he could've provided.


    I wonder if Shore wanted to do more, but out of the tremendous costs to the rest of the show, they relegated him to the single theme.

    That the theme is used for Thor and Jane at the same time is kind of boring. It's also the least interesting Thor theme so far.

    It sounds like it took inspiration from Ragnarok.


    I saw the film the other day and the score really isn't a big part of the film. Two themes stuck out - the two-part main theme and the theme for Gorr and his daughter. The rest was either underscore or just not prominent enough to be interesting on its own or with the film. 

  3. The first film's story was quite simple, three witches are brought back on Halloween and the main characters must stop them. I'm hoping this film doesn't try and needlessly complicate things. There's a line in the trailer that has me thinking they're going to have more witches in the present day?



    I wonder if the Sisters' house is still there, or if they're going to say it was bulldozed to make way for new developments fifteen years ago?

    You can add Christensen, Ahmed Best, Jake Lloyd, Rian Johnson and probably the worst of all George Lucas (Even today I still see people saying Lucas should kill himself) It's sadly a trend that keeps happening over and over again. I'll never understand why because even though I hate someone's work I won't attack the person personally. 

    Don't forget J.J. Abrams. JWFans' favourite punching bag.

    I wasn't joking. I haven't seen a CD or something that can PLAY a CD for many years.

    Most retail entertainment stores sell CDs, I'm surprised you never encountered them!

  5. He looked older, even under the prosthetics! I wanted him to say 'Gooooood!' at the end.


    This finale was actually pretty good, a few emotional moments too. Obi-Wan telling Leia about her parents was a nice little moment I had hoped they would touch upon after the episode earlier in the season.


    The score seemed more orchestral, possibly more of Ross's writing or perhaps it was Hoult? Who knows?

  6. This show looks like a cheap fan film, and that's unfair to fan films; one prop on Kenobi is worth more the budget of an entire fan film. The constant use of shaky cam highlights actors in costumes in a way that cheapens everything. It's so off-putting that it brings down every good aspect of the show - and don't get me wrong, there are quite a few! Ewan McGregor and Ingram Moses are great and after a while I even grew to love Leia.


    The score is so disparate too, half is obviously William Ross working with Williams' theme and the other half (Holt's stuff) is really incongruent with the Williams/Ross material.

    Yeah, anime really seems to have western tv/film beat for music 

    There's anime scores that have an energy, inventiveness and liveliness to them that western television scores sorely lack and I blame the Zimmerites for this downfall. 



  8. It's not too long if you have the choice to skip, remove and create your own listening experience without needing a professional editing suite. 


    Some scores have a better narrative structure that you can listen to them from start to finish in complete form, others not so much and that's all down to the film's narrative too.


    It really boils down to what I've said all along:

    I'd rather have more music now than wait twenty years, complaining on a forum for some speciality label to produce it. 

  9. For those disappointed - yes, in terms of musical continuity, they dropped the ball. However, I can totally see this a studio thing and Holt is simply filling in the gaps as per directions. No one at the studios knows Williams' scores intimately enough to ask her to include themes for characters like Qui Gon or the little motif for Mustafar. They just don't care and neither do a huge swathe of the audience.

  10. @TydiriumI would say the music was scoring the drama of the scenes that took place on those planets, not so much the textures like Shore did for LotR. Mystery and intrigue for the creation of the Clone Army on Kamino, and pounding drum fanfares for the events that surround the duel on Mustafar. Williams'music for Tatooine was really only explored in TPM and ANH that you could say was scoring the feel of the planet.
