  1. It goes like, da-da-da dun-da dun-da dun. Da-da-da dun-da DAAH - da, Dah dee dumm- da, Dah dun dun, da- Da-da-da dunn. da- DAH-da-DAH... de dumm. No, I don't know.
  2. I'm actually John Williams! It's not one I like sharing, but it's one I think emphasizes exactly the mindset one should understand his music with. That is, real thought. My personal favorite is You are Al Bhed.
  3. Uematsu absolutely decimated his period from 1994 to 2001. There is absolutely no competition, he understands what music appreciation is. I even play some of his weaker tracks and I'm elated and drooling... and it's not the type of example I'd normally use to show this composer off.
  4. Essentially, masterpeice movies, TV or video games that repeat the same few cool ideas throughout. I've pretty much named 3 movies and games which are masterpieces. I really love the Matrix ost in the film, it's so Meta
  5. The masterpiece game called Contradiction or the film masterpiece Casino Royale.
  6. Star Wars: A New Hope Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Homeward Bound 2: Lost in San Francisco Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey Princess Mononoke E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Titanic Home Alone 2 The Fellowship of the Ring
  7. Since everyone wants to list invalid options like The Book Thief, The Force Awakens etc. I get Williams' masterpieces all to myself
  8. I don't find E.T. to be a childhood film as much as HP or Home Alone, because with the latter there's such a powerful connection from the entire film and its music, to Harry and Kevin, even when they aren't in the scenes. With E.T I feel the narrative and music connect a lot more with E.T. rather than focus much on Elliott. So the highest-quality scores in this category for me are. 1. Home Alone 2. Harry Potter 1-3
  9. Nah I'm moving up Moan Alone one or two more spots. That score is legit.
  10. Hook was akin to a piece by Handel. Big and all over the place, lacking real substance. The Harry Potters were like Tchaikovsky works. More simplified, but simply perfected.
  11. This is a common noob statement. You need to cross-reference more, ie. from Bach, to totally different genres like Mozart. A theme is one thing that can occur throughout an infinite amount of time. A melody can be many things that occur during one definite time. An example, a theme in Beethoven's Fifth is he most always ends his triplet patterns late throughout the symphony, ie. 1-2-3, 1. A melody in Beethoven's Fifth is everything you hear here, for example: All instruments from 0:28-0:40 come together to form a predetermined melody that can'
  12. Because, SL was just some fiddleditty. JP is eternal.
  13. 1. War Mars IV-VI 2. Raiders of the Lost Superbowl (all 3 years) 3. I.T. The Information Technology 4. Moan Alone 1 and 2 5. Geriatric Park 1 and 2 6. Harry Hudini and the Chamber of Commerce / Prisoner of Alabama 7. Superbad 8. The Accidental Not sure 1. War Mars Sqls Overrated 1. Jews 2. Seven Years in the Fed 3. Hitler's List 4. Close Encounters of the 3rd Wife 5. Hoop
  14. Joker wasn't an okay Batman prequel. Batman was an okay Joker sequel.
  15. Least immune from business, that would be the late 20th century into now. Economic freedom was at its highest, music industry as diverse and free-market as possible. With films however, you're always talking about a collaboration. Half of the time these collaborations are better than your average artists because there's a bigger vision, more inspiration, higher standards, that's where the orchestra and other ensembles were really repurposed. Other times, films and scores fall completely short. There was no better outlet than film, TV or games to produce high art, that i
  16. It's not that people don't like his music, its that they don't like how popular his style is in the industry, as if, "Want to be successful? Compose like Zimmer." Some composers throughout the centuries have written good music that's more digestible and popular than others. It doesn't mean it's great music.
  17. What ever happened to Baby Bear? Also is this going to be like the movie Clue, just with more blood?
  18. It's lovely, Ravel. But you know musical form more than any of the ghastly classical beasts. It only got better after you.
