  1. No, but I do like the movie a lot, and think that a lot of the additions that Jackson and co added were really good. I just wish the movie wasn't so indulgent and three hours long. A good forty minutes could have been trimmed at least. JNH's score on the other hand is just excellent. I have fond memories of seeing the film in the theater with my family in 2005, too, which probably helps to add to my enjoyment of the film.
  2. Sure, I can do that. Drink up!
  3. It's nearly 12 PM on the eastern border over here, so happy 2021 JWfan, here's to next year being better (though probably not). My New Years Resolution is to stop eating so much.
  4. Merry Christmas everyone. Hope you all have a good holiday.
  5. RIP to one of the most charismatic performers who ever lived. Also had a great career outside of Bond, his reinvention later as an elder badass was fabulous. He'll be missed.
  6. Mark Mothersbaugh. Was quite surprised when I learned he wasn't scoring it myself.
  7. Intriguing weird choice. I wouldn't lose respect for Jenkins over this, though. This is clearly him trying to do a studio project so he can get some of that sweet Disney cash to fund for own projects. That's just how the film industry works these days. I more depressed that Disney is making Lion King live-action sequel period, even though it was obviously inevitable, because of how much money it made.
  8. What the hell??? This is so shocking and heartbreaking. I had no idea how he had cancer, he was one of the best actors of his generation, and it just felt like his career was really taking off too. RIP Mr. Boseman, it's incredible what he was able to do while battling his own body.
  9. Really interesting, if a bit overlong, still it was great that Bulk was willing to talk with you that long. A lot of great stories relating to putting Goldsmith on CD, but I especially enjoyed the Star Trek Animated Series CD discussion. That sounds like it would have been a challenge, not just for the stock library aspect of it, but also because of how much it was repeated every episode.
  10. From my understanding Bernstein was asked back, but turned it down because he was tired of scoring comedy films by that point. Edelman who had worked with Reitman on Twins the previous year got the job instead as result.
  11. It really is an incredibly rich cue. I love how it starts silently, and then builds to the sudden slight feeling of dread and drama. I appreciated it so much more after listening to it on its own several times on the CD too. Just one of those great touches that Williams generally brings to his work. Great analysis too.
  12. This is huge, one of the last golden age relics is gone. Just turned 104 a couple of weeks ago too. RIP to an acting legend, her performances in The Snake Pit and The Heiress are incredible.
  13. Oh, wow. 91 is a good age to pass away at, but at the same time, this is so unexpected, especially since he was active until his death. One of the first films composers I really remember paying to attention, when I was much younger. RIP Mr. Morricone, his music will live on forever.
  14. The Walk was greenlit, because it was following in the footsteps of Flight, which was a very successful low-budgeted drama starring Denzel Washington, and considered a reasonable return for Zemeckis to live-action, after his aborted attempt of a mo-cap trilogy. Plus he's also generally good at keeping budgets down, and in on time. Both The Walk, and Welcome to Marwen only cost around 40m, and while Allied was pricier then both, that was probably due to star salaries and shooting locations, not to mention it's overall a bit more ambitious in terms of scope. Until recently Zemeckis movies were at least hugely profitable or reasonable attended. Even something like A Christmas Carol made over 300m worldwide in 2009, it just lost a lot of money because the Mo-Cap technology was so expensive, and not really there yet. However his last three films though have all been massive money losers, and nobody's going to see them, so I'm not sure how much longer he has before he's forced to turn to streaming. It's very possible his remake of The Witches gets dumped on HBO MAX for example, especially given the current Coronavirus situation.
