  1. Here's the show I've been working on for the last three months: Looks like absolute bollocks.
  2. The impression I got from listening to this does not yield much hope this score will standout like some of Zimmer's past scores have - or even sit among the best scores of the last decade. This is basically Gladiator in Space.
  3. I bought the Phase 4 set too, and I echo your sentiments @Holko I wish there were a few more pieces from North by Northwest - does anyone know if there was a remastered score for that film available anywhere?
  4. Some of it oddly reminds me of Mermaids from On Stranger Tides. Yet, that's a stronger theme!
  5. But Desplat ain't a Yankee. @SilverTrumpet There’s a way of saying 'This piece didn't stand out to me' instead it just sounds like you have a hearing problem you want the world to know about. You're like a devout vegan, only, John Williams is your pick-up line!
  6. Crimes of Grindelwald confirmed to me that what Rowling likes to write most is the sinewy, amorphous intrigue of stories like Half-Blood Prince where there's several mysteries wrapped in one. The problem when you translate this to something like Fantastic Beasts is that you prematurely suck the magic out of the story. The political/mystery elements of Harry Potter were rightfully developed much later in the story, not in the first book like what Rowling has attempted with Beasts. And just to add to that, Wizarding attire is incongruous to the same of what Muggles wear in any period.
  7. Although your reply was in jest, I seriously don't recognise the authority of twitterarians or their ability to cancel anyone.
  8. Balfe's HDM has a strong theme, but as is usual for his work, it all sounds like it's coming from a computer. Even the main titles has that Zimmerite processed horn blaring to make it sound specifically from the 2010s.
  9. If the tapes were damaged, how will they work around making an expansion? Film stems etc.?
  10. The sessions that were floating around for years for HP4 had 'damaged' cues - not sure if that meant corrupted files or the tapes themselves were damaged. Would love to see an expansion of it as there's a bunch of music left off the OST.
  11. Is it just me, or does this film look a little too grey, fresh, clean and synthetic?
  12. There's distortion in places on Revenge of the Sith - especially in Battle of the Heroes in the end credits. It sounds like static or the sound of the mix distorting when it's too loud.
  13. The first score release last year garnered a lot of praise and attention online and that was also praise for a physical cd. It would make sense that something as beloved as the HTTYD series would get a physical release in limited numbers knowing they'd sell to a larger audience than the typical film score CD enthusiasts!
  14. This is Williams giving The Speeder Chase some much needed representation after JJ snubbed its use in the film. The motif for that track is pure action-adventure and when I heard it for the first time I actually teared up thinking 'Yes! This is what I've wanted for so long!'.
  15. Hmm... I don't get why they don't release them concurrently or at least bundle them in some collector's edition.
  16. Anyone heard anything about a HD rerelease of Skyward Sword's OST? IIRC, the other games were treated to new OSTs upon their HD release...
  17. I think there's an aspect of adventure, discovery and danger, and a yearning to strive towards better ideals - Star Trek's music captures that, but here's a selection of tracks that I associate with space: Star Trek Voyager Main Theme Alien Main Theme Star Trek Beyond Yorktown Theme Wall-E: The Axiom Star Wars - Imperial Attack (Escape Pod section) Star Wars Princess Leia's Theme Star Wars The Force Awakens - Arrival on Takodana Cowboy Bebop : Space Lion
  18. The DCEU is now the DUNC Detective Universe of Non Cinema
