  1. This was far too dark for me. I’ve been reading through Marvel Comics on Marvel Unlimited, starting with the All-New, All Different era (circa 2014 ish I think). Moon Knight was in there, and it was easily some of the darkest stuff they published, including The Punisher and Jessica Jones. Seems quite true to the source material. But I love the MCU for the fun and escapism. This offers nothing like that for me.
  2. Presumed Innocent takes the title of darkest for me. I agree there are so many ways to interpret the word and so many scores it could be applied to. WotW is what first came to mind, but I’d really call it most violent.
  3. Not ‘score’ related… but I really enjoyed the use of Christmas in the Stars in the background at the LARPer apartment! A Christmas favorite in our house!
  4. Oh man, you’ve got to see Onward. Felt like a return to the Pixar I grew up with. Quite a fun romp.
  5. Just get the Goat Rodeo ensemble to join! Yo Yo Ma, Chris Thile, Edgar Meyer, a few others... the G.O.A.T. joins the Goat Rodeo!
  6. I can. I’ll work on it tonight. Reply or message me if you haven’t heard back from me by tomorrow as a reminder.
  7. Sinatra is my third musical passion after JW and Edvard Grieg. I had no idea about this connection! Guess I’m not a real fan…
  8. Yep it went flying and he finished without it! And then joked around a bit. I didn’t catch how or when it returned to his stand, but he turned around and there it was. Kobe was mentioned prior to the piece in a brief, loving statement from JW and that’s when the audience went wild. They definitely reacted during the clip of him, but it was less celebratory if I recall correctly.
  9. Simone was the biggest. But a lot of them got significant applause/cheering, actually. Bolt. Phelps. The Williams sisters. You could also tell the audience really connected when the music got intense towards the final build up when the athletes were showing their preparation and nervousness before starting. Awesome stuff. Being from Wisconsin, I whooped when they showed the gold medal winning curling team. Probably startled/confused the locals.
  10. JW looked spry and anticipating the orchestra and music rather than following. (I last saw him in Chicago and Boston about 3 years ago and he looked fatigued/distracted.) Typical recent concert fare. Three encores. The highlight of the evening was the ‘84 (?) Olympic theme set to recent highlights of winter and summer games. This was truly phenomenal video editing and synchronization. The audience loved it. I would love to see it released.
  11. I always like one of those little gems that doesn’t get as much stage time. Main Theme from Sabrina, a selection from Lincoln, and the suite from Jane Eyre, were some of my favorites of concerts I’ve been to. For the heavy hitters, I would love to hear Close Encounters. For the little gems, Stanley and Iris or Accidental Tourist would be magical. I love listening to them when the weather gets cooler. The River would also be cool. Some great Americana in there. But most of all I want to hear Crimebuster. i don’t have high hopes for any of those, CE included.
  12. Gonna be there Friday night. My second time seeing the Maestro at the Hollywood Bowl. Every time I have the chance to see him, it feels like such a gift from the universe.
  13. This will be a pretty great set to pick up! I have a few of these from over the years. But to nab them all will be a treat to enjoy! It has me thinking… Is there a resource here or elsewhere that lists the official JW arrangements and the recordings they appear on? Not limited to just conducted by Williams.
  14. I’m listening for the first time, and the opening Suite was so disconcerting to me. The strings sound sampled. I’m not convinced they aren’t. It sounds so dry and lifeless and mechanical. All of the notes simply evaporate. Indiana Jones this is not.
