  1. This made me super mad since Solo may be my favorite all-time score. And, anyway, with all the amazing scores that Powell has done, he really deserves an Oscar. I guess since Ennio Morricone had to wait decades for his Oscar, Powell will just have to do the same.
  2. If I'm generally a fan of very romantic scores and want to get into Zimmer, what's a good score to listen to first? Romantic as in time period, not emotion.
  3. Update on the Solo piano solo book; for the most part, it's great! They actually tried their best to transcribe the complexity of Powell's action into a piano solo part . . . which is why there isn't a whole bunch of action in this book. But the action they do have is great. Adventures of Han is a great transcription, better than the Samuel Fu one in many ways, I think. Same for Meet Han. They didn't transcribe all of Corellia Chase, but probably two or three minutes worth of it. Not sure why they even bothered with Train Heist; they only arranged the quiet part at the beginning and just ended
  4. Ha. I was just listening to The Rocketeer, and a motif that sounds just like the Death Star/Imperial fanfare just turned up at 1:21.
  5. I'm listening to The Rocketeer right now. What an amazing theme Horner wrote for it. Heroic, yet also old-fashioned at the same time. I love the time period and the intentional cheesiness of the movie. Main Title and Takeoff was just a joy to listen to.
  6. Nah, the Imperial fanfare only appears in A New Hope (and Rogue One). You can hear it almost every time that it cuts back to the Death Star in A New Hope. See 1:49 of "Burning Homestead or 6:18 of "Imperial Attack." In Rogue One, it shows up at 1:49 of "When Has Become Now."
  7. It's finally here! The Solo: A Star Wars Story piano solo book has arrived! https://www.halleonard.com/product/viewproduct.action?itemid=280822&subsiteid=1
  8. Exact same thought I had! If Kylo is redeemed, I would also love some triumphant major versions of his theme intertwined with Rey's theme!
  9. That's fair. There are a whole lot of inconsistencies, but I think there are enough consistencies to unite them. And thanks for the articulation of what differs the prequel scores from the orig trig scores! I've always wanted to articulate what's different but never quite known how to separate them.
  10. I like the false-ish ending to Yoda's Theme. It comes to a peaceful conclusion, then restates the theme one more time in an even calmer and more beautiful way. And, of course, it has those strings rippling back and forth at the end, which I really love. It always makes me feel really peaceful listening to that ending. Which is why I didn't mind its inclusion in The Sacred Jedi Texts and the end credits of TLJ.
  11. I actually love Cargo Shuttle 0608. It has this sense of anticipation, and the stringy chords in it as they fly in are right out of A New Hope. Plus the mission motif reappears (a motif I quite like), so I quite like that piece.
  12. Saw Ant-Man and the Wasp for the first time! I thought it was slightly better than the first one, but obviously nothing mind-blowing. I wish Michael Peña's buddies had done more and that Goliath had Goliathed, but all the main cast were great, and all the action sequences were really creative and fun! Bit of a downer ending, but it just makes the time until March when Captain Marvel comes out all the more unbearable. Very solid movie though.
  13. I think I'm probably imagining it, but during Maz's Counsel, at 0:37, I'm always reminded of Across the Stars by that faint harp. Probably not intentional though. Isn't that more like the Across the Stars B section than Han Solo and the Princess? Unless I'm not remembering a part of HSatP.
  14. I'll check it out for sure! I just bought one of their albums and am hooked, so I'll probably have to keep buying them now.
  15. Just discovered Big Phat Band, thanks to Incredibles 2 and a friend. I love this big band interpretation/loose arrangement!
  16. Solo is my favorite Star Wars score, and I doubt Powell could top it with any of his other scores, so . . . no, Chicken Run isn't his best.
  17. Qui-Gon's/Padme's Funeral(s) pretty much hit the nail on the head for me as far as a Dies Irae sort of Williams piece should sound. It has the gravitas and weight, and you could easily change the lyrics from Sanskrit to some part of the Latin Mass.
  18. Oh! Also the Alliance Assembly theme from Return of the Jedi. It's so noble and majestic that hearing some development of the theme and a full-fledged arrangement would be marvelous.
  19. Shmi's theme is my favorite, all the way! Anakin Is Free is one of my favorite tracks from The Phantom Menace. The pan flute solo and everything that follows it is so tender and beautiful! I also like the Death Star theme a lot and wished it had appeared more, both in RotJ and in R1. I also LOVE the Alliance Assembly theme. It deserves more appearances.
  20. Battle of Hoth is definitely up there! I would also include all his fugues (like the Shark Cage) and the entire Naboo battle in TPM.
