  1. IMHO this is the worst music for a Star Wars show... And I'm not a big fan of the score in The Mandalorian/Boba Fett or the Kevin Kiner music. Also, the Bill Ross tracks are way below expectations. Is he using an orchestra? Doesn't seem so... And his adaptation of the theme in the End Credits is too cheesy for my taste. And yes, I agree that the more melodic tracks from Holt are "ok" not much, just "ok" and no interesting at all. Anyway, I really like the Williams theme. I prefer it over the Galaxy Edge theme, for example.
  2. I don't have much appreciation for this score. I'll have a close listen to the existing edition and think about buying the new one. If I lived in the US, the choice would be easier but when you end up paying double due to taxes you start thinking very careful which scores really deserve a physical copy.
  3. I think the same but maybe the suite is not a full suite but a collection of variations on the theme. I simply hope that we can get this music (maybe the end credits in some episode will be a portion of that suite?)
  4. I hate this news because now I'm hyped thinking in all the great expanded stuff they could release... And I don't want to get hurt. So, no, I'm not expecting anything remarkable or memorable just some music where Williams is credited in someway.
  5. Umm I prefer the 2018 recording, I like this one but maybe at this moment I'm too familiar with the 2018 version and it takes some time to appreciate ASM take...
  6. I like Britell, for instance his score for Vice is pretty good, although I'm not sure if his style will be up to the task for a Star Wars series. He also composed last year Cruela so, I guess that's his connection with Disney and seems an ok score for the movie. Anyway, I'm glad we are getting a new composer.
  7. hahaha I plan for that, indeed That's why I said I understand him, is a sad news for me and for cinema. I usually enjoy more his movie scores than concerts but is his choice not mine!
  8. Wow... I can understand Williams but is a sad news. I hope this is similar to the situation after Schindler's List when he retired. But, indeed, he's 90 and he should enjoy life doing whatever he wants.
  9. Thanks to @The Illustrious Jerry I can name the only bit of this score that I genuinely liked: The Jaunty Riff at You Fly, I'll Shoot.
  10. That one is among my favourite songs in the Bond franchise. Also I like a lot Adele's Skyfall. About Hans getting a golden globe for Dune's score... Well, I don’t care. I don't like much his composition but these are the golden globes.
  11. ... But three? In the same episode? I like montages because usually the score can shine there (my favourite cue in The Mandalorian is the training in Episode 4 of Season 1) so maybe one of the problem is that the music didn't touch me...
  12. The second episode is better but I give the series another episode until I feel my time is more precious... I'm glad more people are aware of Dean Cundey but when I saw the credits I felt sad because the cinematography was underwhelming. I don't know if it has something to do with the use of CGI but many scenes felt cheap. The backgrounds seem too static and the light fake, I know is just the desert, but they might need some wind, motion blur when the camera is moving, etc But, anyway, my biggest problem with the show is the way they try to hook the fans including in Tosche station Camie and Laze, the reapear of Hutts... Seems that Star Wars is just a collection of winks for fans without making an effort in the story. Also, is curious how a 50 minutes episodes has 3 montages scenes: Boba learning to fight, the tuskens learning to ride the bikes and Boba making the stick. As @rough cutI couldn't avoid laughing at the "part of the tribe" dance at the end... [Sorry for the rant!]
  13. You're absolutely right. For me it has more to do also with my impressions of the Mandalorian Maybe it ends being a great show... But I'm almost sure that it won't be a show that I enjoy.
  14. ... So I'm in the group of people that didn't like it. I found the episode boring and badly done. I'm not a fan of The Mandalorian, but I put the quality of this episode among the worst of the two. Is quite sad for me to see something with the "Star Wars" name and feel so disconnected. I'm glad many people enjoy the path that Favreau and Filoni are taking to the franchise but this is not for me.
  15. I like this FYC Promo but... I feel a little bit disappointed. Klimek and Tykwer could have done something better... I can't say if I prefer any of the Davi's scores for the previous films, but the style in the score stays too close to Davis. I know it makes sense but these guys shine more with another style, I think.
  16. Umm... So I like the OST but I was disappointed after seeing the track-list (and specially the "sound fx" disclamer) but the comments of @Jayand @TownerFan made me think to purchase it, so i'll try to buy it!
  17. I would like Williams, since this is absolutely out of question, I'll be also happy with Powell. James Newton Howard could be also good and Giacchino could make something better than Rogue One, for sure. I hope is not Göransson. I'm getting quite tired of his Madalorian scores and I won't be very happy if he becomes the go to composer for Star Wars.
  18. And even with that he manages to copy his previous themes! hahaha As far as I know, many composers work like that nowadays. They hire co-composers to do more than separate the music between the different instruments.
  19. Lucas never planed to use Luke, Han and Leia, actually the story focused into Qui-Gon's lost grandgrandchildren and his forbidden love for a Gungan. Probably, but the only track that I listened was a variation on the Desert Winds source track in Episode I. Glass wants to use the less popular material of Williams...
  20. I agree, Episode X (code name "something, something darker this time") is already finished. In fact, George Lucas filmed the whole movie right after Episode III. Williams, of course, score it in 2006 and, if you ask him, he's sure that the movie was premier that same year. Apparently Lucas new that if he released this new Episode people won't see The Clone Wars so he waited, but after being sad with the reception of Red Tails, he decided to retire and sell Lucasfilms to Disney. I don't want to spoil you guys this movie, Disney has it and Lucas wanted this movie to be "Episode VII" but they told him "No, George, we paid you a lot of money and we want to make our story. Your movie, will be in fact Episode X". George, obviously, though that was the right move because it would make his movie even better and more unexpected. The movie needed some reshoots because Disney wants to add Rey, Finn and the rest of the cast of their new trilogy into the movie. I can confirm you these reshoots are mostly done. Lucas is not doing the reshoots. He said, "I retired, you need to hire a younger director for these reshoots". So Disney hired David O. Russell. Williams is not needed for those reshoots because Philip Glass is already scoring some variations of the themes to fit these new scenes. Anyway, they planed to release Episode X this year, but seems that Russell has 2 hours of reshoots of Finn training to be a Jedi and he refuses to cut this into the 10 minutes that Disney demanded. The rumours (is not yet confirmed) are that they will release "Finn trains for real: A Star Wars Story" as a precuel to Episode X.
  21. I liked a lot, finally a Zimmer score for a franchise where he adapts to the movie, and not the movie to his style. I love they used some On Her Majesty’s Secret Service themes. In the movie there're some instances of the usual zimme/mazzaro action music that I didn't find very remarkable, but even with that I'll say is a very solid score. Indeed, I wasn't sure if I missed it in the credits but seems they included it without crediting...
