    His Angel is gorgeous. The last I heard from him was Dans La Maison, which was a cute, albeit repetitive, little drama score.

    Bayesian reacted to crumbs in The Rise of Skywalker - For Your Consideration (FYC) Album Discussion - SPOILERS ALLOWED!   
    I wonder if Mike could forward this to Disney Records/JW's team as ammunition for Star Wars expansions?
     
    Williams was so furious about the unsanctioned A.I. Academy Promo that Mike was asked to "devalue" it with a comprehensive expansion. Now people are spending thousands of dollars on the black market for heavily edited fragments of TROS, on a CD expressly forbidden for sale.
     
    Sony Music are a clueless bunch of clowns so them sitting on the rights for decades was no shock, but the silence from Disney/Lucasfilm/Kennedy is pathetic. There is huge potential for profit here for relatively little expenditure. The music is sitting on a hard drive gathering dust when they could become a perpetual income stream. That is more insane than spending $2,000 on a TROS FYC.

    Bayesian reacted to crumbs in Avatar 2, 3 and 4 or how James Cameron stopped worrying and pulled The Hobbit on us   
    Cameron is a special breed of filmmaker. The core story of Avatar might not be too original but the world building is undeniably superb. Best of all, he can take the series in any number of directions now. He has an entire planet (hell, an entire solar system) at his disposal; I wouldn't be surprised if things become intergalactic by the final film, with a sinister alien race even worse than oil-hungry humans.
     
    But we really do need more Camerons in the industry. People who have an instinctual grasp of classic storytelling, pacing and visuals/editing. The basics of good filmmaking which are severely lacking in the creatively bankrupt Hollywood system. Even Spielberg has lost his magic touch ever since all the criticism he received for Munich (which is a masterpiece, people just disagreed with the message it posited).

    Bayesian got a reaction from Not Mr. Big in Avatar 2, 3 and 4 or how James Cameron stopped worrying and pulled The Hobbit on us   
    I'm watching this now on Disney+ as I idly wait for the Super Bowl kickoff. I gotta say, this film is truly special. No one makes a movie like James Cameron, and no one but him could have made a plot as derivative as this one engrossing. This thing was filmed almost 13 years ago and it looks like it could have been released to theaters last week. The computer effects haven't aged a day and the film flows in a way that makes it kind of timeless. No gimmicky editing, just straightforward storytelling. I'm excited for the sequels.

    Bayesian got a reaction from DarthDementous in R.I.P. Kobe Bryant, for whom JW wrote Dear Basketball   
    I don't follow basketball much and didn't realize LeBron passed Kobe in all-time scoring only yesterday. To read about Kobe's congratulatory messages, and see this quote:
     
    “I don't know if people want that or want to have this kind of contentious thing where you don't want records to be broken or people there to surpass you,” Bryant told USA TODAY Sports. “You should be happy for the person that comes after you to be able to surpass things that you've done. It's kind of juvenile to think or to behave any other way.”
     
    ...reminds me that Kobe was a true class act as well as an amazingly talented athlete. This is just a terrible tragedy.

    I think he might’ve had an inkling. At least he was smart enough to secure a contract that guaranteed him $1 per each soundtrack sale, which ended up netting him $20 million or so from score sales alone.

    For some reason, high quality copies of this film seem to be hard to find, but this one is the best quality version I've seen (complete with end credits). Sadly it has burned subtitles, but it's still the best version I've found.

    He was 41, Gianna was only 13. Untimely deaths (celebrity or otherwise) are all the more crushingly sad because the world will never know what they could have done, what ways great or small the world might have improved, if they hadn't gone so soon. May everyone lost today rest in peace.

    NBA legend Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash this sunday. 
     
    In addition to his brilliant basketball career, he and JW collaborated on the Dear Basketball animated short film.
     
    Rest in peace.
