    My god, this is gorgeous. Glad I managed to tune in for the second half. Hope they’ll do a recording of Han Solo and the Princess some time.

    The way the violinist and orchestra are in sync with how they'll back off on a note then edge into it...wow.

    These concerts are the main reason we know he is ill. Mike Matessino mentioned a 'routine illness' so it is possible (if not probable) that this is an issue that crops up for JW now and again, and he has had hospital visits for it before. But as he didn't have to cancel anything, none of us knew about it.

    I don't wanna be too negative here, but it means "stable under the circumstances"..... And anyway I don't like this word; the doctors use this word to describe patients after tough, risky operations....
     
    Because if he's so fine and dandy already, why cancel the concerts that's scheduled in two weeks' time? Doesn't add up.

    Given that this is the first and only time I'll be seeing the Maestro perform (AND the LSO to boot), I'm personally very pleasantly surprised and happy about the set list. Surprised because there's more cues than I expected there to be and happy because I've been listening to these tracks for nearly all my life, indeed it is for the most part what I'd call the soundtrack to it. So this is great as far as I'm concerned.

    This one's awesome, of course, but I'm still happier about Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List (as far as 2018 releases go). These two soundtracks are two of my most listened to ever! Dracula, not so much.

    Any chance you can refrain yourself from making weird and creepy replies like this?  I don't think anyone on this entire forum appreciates them.  Thank you.

    Lol. Jay is right. Not just a different key, different notes, different steps between notes, etc. Honestly, the only real similarity is that they're both played on that low brass Giacchino uses. You might as well throw Nero's Theme from Star Trek and that section from the Sky High Main Theme in there as well if that's all it takes for a theme to sound the same.

    Locrius reacted to Gruesome Son of a Bitch in Anyone else miss all the specks in movies?   
    Yup, I'm posting about this. Every time I see a gloriously specky film like the trailer posted above, I get a bit giddy. Movies just don't look correct anymore. In the cinema, there'd be specks. On home video prior to Blu ray, there'd be specks. In many cases, sudden excessive specks were an indication of a special effects shot. Now that the specks have been eliminated, everything looks less like a film and more like one of Drax's soap operas.

    Hands down one of my favorite moments in the score! Really stood out to me on my first viewing; I was disappointed to realize later that night that it wasn't included on the album, but thankfully "Lando's Closet" still helped satisfy my craving for the theme. Still, though, I love how the strings swell at the beginning of this appearance of it.

    Even if I was a fan of Michael Giacchino, I dont think I'd consider him a particularly deep or nuanced composer, generally.
