  1. Surely the greatest honor for a composer, credits wise, is when in an opening credits sequence they are the last person credited before the director. I know Hitchcock did this for Herrmann in Psycho, obviously he knew how much work Herrmann's music had done to help the movie, but has it happened for any other composer?
  2. Not Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman??????
  3. I agree, the flute concerto as a whole is for sure the highlight and main reason to get this album. It's music that is very "present" and exciting and grabs you by the collar with its expressive ideas. I do think it's interesting that outside of the concert works and the two Oscar winning scores (obvious picks to include on a release like this) the three film scores he chose to highlight in concert arrangements were all from the mid 2000s period (2003-2007) when Desplat first broke into international success.
  4. Alexandre Desplat released a new album this year that features Desplat himself conducting the French National Orchestra and flute soloist Emmanuel Pahud. The album features a mix of concert works and arrangements from his film scores. The concert works are Pelléas et Mélisande, a flute concerto, and Airlines, a short work for solo flute. 1. The Shape of Water: I. The Shape of Water (2:19) 2. The Shape of Water: II. Watching Ruth (3:49) 3. The Shape of Water: III. Elisa’s Theme (4:59) 4. Pelléas et Mélisande: I. Comme un oiseau pourchassé (7:38) 5. Pelléas et Mélisande: II. Ils regardent la lumière (5:22) 6. Pelléas et Mélisande: III. Rosée de plomb, inexorables ténèbres (6:19) 7. Lust, Caution (2:22) 8. Girl with a Pearl Earring (7:26) 9. Birth (7:36) 10. Airlines (4:19) 11. The Grand Budapest Hotel (4:08) https://open.spotify.com/album/6kJBFXxDlHd4apTrS3Q3aD?nd=1&nd=1
  5. Pretty crazy that we're coming up on 6 years since PJ's last fiction film and still no announcement of a project in the works.
  6. I'm mostly the same. I put on Jerry Goldsmith's Link every October and the music just makes me think of neighborhood streets and yard littered with fallen leaves, pumpkins on front stoops, days getting shorter etc. etc.
  7. I think I'm one of the few who's looking forward to Spielberg's West Side Story, but one thing I am NOT looking forward to is Ansel Elgort singing "Maria."
  8. Sounds like something some obsessive FSMer would know. I sure don't! I think it's pretty fun! All electronic and very very very dated and a bit silly. So if you're into REALLY 80s sounding scores.

  10. He kept offering to PayPal people money for iTunes gift cards. If it was someone doing a bit, it was a very funny bit. I miss @Jwfan2234!!
  11. I randomly saw this post looking for something else and I gotta say "Jay or should I say little slut" made me laugh harder than I've laughed in days. Post TFA JWFan was wild.
  12. She was iconic! RIP A random thing I like her in is Doctor Who. She was a lot of fun hamming it up as the crazy Victorian lady with an alien worm living on her bosom! And yeah, bad form from bolle. When someone's died it's easy to follow the "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" rule.
  13. and the jailer man and sailor sam were searching everyone FOR THE SPOOOONGE ON THE RUUUUN
  14. I agree if only because it's silly to leave the Wii U *only* 99% irrelevant. Just finish the job and put 'er out of 'er misery!
  15. They still haven't ported Yoshi's Woolly World, a game I love. Crafted World was a huge disappointment.
  16. Hollywood enforcing moral codes has never gone wrong
  17. I think because of COVID, this new BOTW Hyrule Warriors is the closest we’re getting to a big holiday release. I think they expect sales of Animal Crossing and other evergreen back catalog titles to pull them through. For the record, I couldn’t be less interested in musou games and no amount of Zelda paint job will convince me to try it.
  18. Can’t wait! Man, I’m really gonna miss Kuiil and IG-11.
  19. I Wanna Hold Your Hand (1978) Robert Zemeckis' directorial debut, the first movie Steven Spielberg uses his post-Jaws Hollywood power to get made. It's a wild comedy and I loved every minute. It's incredibly confident and already has that Zemeckis/Gale incredibly satisfying thing where the plot unfolds like carefully constructed clockwork. Near the beginning when one of the characters jumps out of a moving vehicle just so they can call into a radio show to win tickets to see The Beatles, I knew I was going to love this movie. For what kind of movie it is, it's essentially perfect!
  20. I think my most controversial pop music take: Jimi Hendrix was a mediocre songwriter and shallow performer whose music is unjustifiably venerated.
