  1. For that binary sunset moment, I also go with Revenge of the Sith, although I kind of like the consistency ending on the sequels (in which I prefer TLJ rendition, I think also that the musical moment has more sense than in the other two sequels).
  2. Oh... If that was the case the "I don't like Rogue One score" makes much more sense.
  3. I'm not so sure. I think Williams involvement has much to do with Ron Howard and all the schedule problems due to him replacing Lord and Miller. I could imagine Howard approaching Williams an asking him for some music while asking for his approval for Powell. Maybe if Edwards had approached Williams for Rogue One he would have considered composing something... But Lucasfilm was more confident with their movies in 2016 than in 2018...
  4. So if Williams was Zimmer the movie would have only said "Music by John Williams" and Powell would appear as "Additional Music by John Powell", right?
  5. The oposite has happened to me. I felt like you during the first listen and now is my top new theme in TROS. I love it both: when is quite building music and when it's a bombastic march.
  6. That's a good point, probably he would've said something or even Rian...
  7. I'm not sure if the scene was removed very early since according to te audiocomentary Johnson said the scene was there a long time and that he removed it because of pacing... And I see why. The scene is fine but removing it doesn't harm the movie at all, which usually means that the scene is useless. The main loss is that great arrangement of Rey's theme... In any case I have a bold guess: could it be a Nathan Johnson composition? Maybe Rian asked his cousin and long-time collaborator to write this source piece of music... Or indeed could be a stock piece that they leave there whi
  8. I love ite from the very first moment I listened! One of the best moments in the score and also one of the very few moments were JJ allowed the music to stand out.
  9. As other people are saying I don't find DotF apocalyptic. Is more epic, has the sense of a battle between good and evil more than "oh shit, we are going to die!!". Neodammerung is fine, but it lacks something... I can't point out clearly what it is (maybe the orchestration? The whole Matrix trilogy has one of those Don Davis' orchestrations were every instrument is always playing at the same time) but I don't like it as much as the other two tracks. Also, I must confess that Mount Doom is developed with one of my least favourites melodies in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I love th
  10. Yes, I agree with that too! I usually like, or even love, JJ films. I saw two days ago again TFA and I think is a very good film. He also he has the ability to get the best of Giacchino and Williams, I think that with Trevorrow the score of Episode IX would have been less interesting from a thematic point of view. Precisely what I love so much of TROS score is how Williams composed so many interesting (and unnecessary) themes.
  11. I agree, the new material in TFA and TROS is far superior than in TLJ, but the latter has a much better use of the music. I think that Johnson is a better director than JJ by 12 parsecs. The way they work with their composer is also very different and although I think JJ did better there, after so many micro edits and changes the result is a very choppy score in a movie full of noise. The sound mixing in TLJ is great, and at the end I guess that Johnson knew precisely what did he wanted as the score and asked Williams that. A little more of freedom would had made for a even better score but is
  12. I went with Superman: Returns as my favourite. Solo is close, but I feel Ottman deserves more credit for that great score and I absolutely love every single track there. He took Williams themes and created something almost as great as the original score. For the least favourite I went with Superman II. Why? Because is essentially a copy-paste of the original one and, for me, that's not to adapt, is just a re-recording. Over this years Rogue One grew up on me. Is still one of my least favourite Star Wars scores but it has some great moments and overall is a pretty good score.
  13. Mine has shipped today, although with the coronavirus outbreak I'm not sure when it'll arrive to my place. In any case I don't mind waiting a month for listening to this.
  14. So they got it from the sessions... After they where used in the DVD xD Do we know why the Concorde collection wasn't more complete?
  15. I voted "Marcus is Captured/ To Berlin" simply because I love the nazi fanfare and the instalment of the grail and other themes there. Probably my second choice is Indy's very first adventure and, next, the boat chase. really? And did it have it? Every unreleased track that I got from this score had very crapy sound quality.
  16. You're right, I think that probably he scored a longer and more cohesive edit. That's why I feel TROS might be the most interesting expanded score. Hope to be alive when they finally release these scores...
  17. I didn't liked the movie, it was one of my biggest movie disappointments in my life because I liked very much episodes VIII and VII. I think they could have done something better and after the death of Carrie Fisher I'd moved the last instalment to this year, in order to write a better script and take more time to edit the movie. I don't think it was SW-fatigue but a too tight schedule for a "big movie". Anyway, speaking of the music, I love it but definitely in the movie doesn't sound as good as it should. Is not well edited, there's too many tracked music for my taste and in man
  18. I prefer Born on the Fourth of July, I think is a better score and also because the only expanded edition that I listened don't sound very well, whereas for War of the Worlds is ok. In any case I'll be happy buying any of those expanded editions-
  19. I can't really explain why I don't like it hahaha Maybe is that the new themes didn't stuck in my head. I should give the score a new opportunity...
  20. I mean... I think there's no contender. I love the first HTTYD score but not so much the next two: I usually get bored before the first half of the CD. Shore's Hobbit is the weakest of the bunch for me which is a pity since his LOTR is beyond greatness.
  21. Without Spielberg I don't see the point in this movie. Even more, I think Mangold is an ok-ish director but nothing more. I hope for a better news: the cancel the whole project.
  22. I hate they do this and don't release this things in physical. I'm sure they have space in the Blu-ray. In any case, will this be available at Disney+? I doubt it but it could be a good selling point of their streaming platform to add all these exclusive content there too.
  23. I have the same impression. Williams doesn't really care about wining, he's happy to still compose. Probably he would have been happier if Thomas Newman won, but...
