    Made a visualization, just for the hell of it:
     

    You could fit a couple slices of IV into space of the IX, and still have plenty left over.

    DrTenma got a reaction from Remco in Harry Potter vs Prequels and Sequels   
    My election is unpopular: Sequels > Harry Potter > Prequels. Although I'll say that HP and the prequels come very, very close but Prisoner of Azkaban is one of the best Williams' score. The sequels, for me have something truly special, the 3 scores are very consistent, their themes are strong and the action material is excellent.

    Depends how you define unreleased music. If you only mean unreleased music used in the film itself, it's a very different answer to unreleased music that was recorded (as there's a substantial amount recorded and unused, over 100 minutes for TROS). Then there's music on the OST not used in the film.
     
    I think the film itself has about ten minutes unscored, ten minutes tracked from previous scores, and lots of repetition of TROS cues tracked multiple times (Falcon Flight). And lots of cues are only used in short fragments (when their complete form was minutes longer).

    An even earlier, completely different version of 1M5 that was eventually discarded. Kind of interesting to hear Vader's theme all over it.

    Earlier version (1M5 Alt2 R) of The Scavenger cue from The Force Awakens. Dune slide is different and it's overall slightly longer than the released version.

    One thing I really like in this score is the Force Theme in Reunion at 0.30. Because it is the same version as in Farewell and the Trip from TFA but more complete. 
     
    Here you have the Force Theme at 0.48 but it is only the first half of the theme, suggesting that they won the battle not the war. 
     
    Here you have it in TROS at 0.30 but now in complete form because they have won the war.

    Nice ! 
    But they should have given the award to a real artist, Hildur Gudnadottir for example, rather than some movie composers...

    DrTenma reacted to Falstaft in "Falcon Flight" from Ep. 9 Appreciation   
    Hi everyone. In the same spirit as the "A New Home" from TROS appreciation thread, I thought I'd kick off discussion of another stand-out cue from The Rise of Skywalker.
     
    I'm tempted to call Falcon Flight the best action cue from Episode 9, though far too many of its attractions are obscured in the film mix to notice. It seems to me to be as good a synthesis as we could ask for of the thematic richness of the OT action-style with the PT and ST's emphasis on quick changing gestures and repetitive ostinati. 
     
    Over its brief duration, we get series-standout renditions of:
    0:12 - Emperor's Theme. I simply love this arrangement, especially the atypical tritonal bass motion for the F#m - Am/C progression.
    0:30, 0:45, 1:30 - March of the Resistance, really being used in an exciting and integral way
    0:57, 2:05 - Rebel Fanfare, giving more proof that JW now treats it as much as an all-purpose hero theme (or Millennium Falcon theme) than something specifically for the Rebellion.
    1:14 - New Heroics Motif, which seems to sprout from Poe's Theme and the Main Theme so seamlessly. And what trumpet writing!
     
    It's not just themes: I think channeling of the OT's harmonic language is nowhere more exact, down to the pitch-perfect Db(#4)/G => C cadence at the end, bringing us right back the ANH's soundworld (and, by extension, Holst's Mars). 
     
    The new "one-cue-wonder" material is great too. I love how each of the three lightspeed jump destinations garners its own distinct musical material.
     
    And underneath much of it, a vigorous string ostinato that nods back, intentionally or not (I think intentionally -- it's too on-point!) to Hyperspace from ESB. And note how the string figure, while consistent as a texture, is actually never repeated for more than a measure or two without some substantial musical alteration. (cf. "The Master Switch" from Rogue One to see the difference between a master and an imitator..)
     
    What do you all think?

    I also think TLJ is the best SW movie in a very long time but TROS didn't ruin the previous films for me. In any case is a very weak end of a trilogy that I was enjoying a lot. A bad film shouldn't keep us from enjoying the movies that we previously liked and, in any case, TLJ is an open but good end for the Skywalker saga.
