  1. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2003) Minority Report (2002) Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) The Lord of the Rings Trilogy other scores of the 21st century...
  2. Rise of Skywalker... the penultimate chapter of JW's film scoring career? Will Indy 5 be JW's last score?
  3. Okay maybe I was being way too emotional. But... I really believe that those who are ultra passionate about the new SW like the Reylo fans think of themselves as hipsters. Let's just call them SW hipsters.
  4. The story takes place literally zero seconds after The Force Awakens. So what has changed in the hearts and souls of the new goodies and the new baddies of the Star Wars Galaxy? What can a composer bring to the film? Turns out the goodies are so strong, that even their music doesn’t evolve beyond their appearances in TFA. And the baddies? They’re disposable so there’s no need for too much development for both Snoke and Kylo Ren’s themes. In the prequels, when legacy props or characters come to focus, we can hear how JW plants his devices of musical foreshadowing. But after the use of “Burning Homestead” in TFA, the powers that be are almost determined to have JW do the same whenever legacy stuff shows up. Oh Yoda! And there’s Luke and Leia! Let’s put in the concert pieces and be done with this. Let’s not really develop the themes of the OT because the OT characters don’t have arcs now. This is Star Wars for the postmodern SW hipsters of the 2010s. There’s no need to develop a second discussion on family and destiny between Luke and Leia. Slap on Luke and Leia to a conversation about hair and dice is enough for these Marvel addicts. Because that’s what space families talk about 30 years into their space fight against the political and spiritual forces of space darkness. Transtextuality trumps authenticity. “I've been dying a little bit each day since you came back into my life.” Yeah, Padme, this current revival of SW is just as bad as the one you’re in.
  5. Rey's Theme alone is enough for all the "use-the-force" moments in the film. Even for those "Reylo" moments with Kylo.
  6. Imagine a premiere of a new JW concerto with the Vienna Philharmonic...
  7. Setting: Hollywood Oligarchic Corporatocracy The Inciting Incident: Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion Conflict: The paid elite vs The fans Climax: Palpatine comes back from the dead in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Final Scene: A reprise of "Binary Sunset"
