  1. Actually, the world ended in December 2012 just like the Mayans had predicted, but since we lived shitty lives before, we're actually in hell now. The people who had good lifes by this time are in heaven, enjoying the Matessino produced boxes for Star Wars (all three trilogies), Hook (complete, restored and without a single note missing) and Indy (all 4 movies), along with a very detailed cue by cue analysis. Oh, and on heaven there is no "post-2005 scores are too prohibitively expensive for expansions", so they have War of the Worlds, Memories of a Geisha, Tintin, War Horse expanded too. I wished I had confessed more often and did more voluntary work before Dec 2012, instead of eagerly anticipating An Unexpected Journey .
  2. Most of the tracks on Newman's OSTs are references to stuff the characters said on the movies. My favorite is "Choking the Bishop" from American Beauty

  4. No Agent Smith on the fourth movie. https://birthmoviesdeath.com/2020/01/21/hugo-weaving-will-not-be-in-the-matrix-4
  5. https://ew.com/books/2020/01/21/hunger-games-prequel-exclusive-excerpt/ Another prequel centered on the villain? Yeesh... And Snow wasn't the most interesting character on the Hunger Games saga either.
  6. Indeed. I love when Newman does atmospheric music like this with synths and melancholic piano, and A Scrap of Ribbon and A Bit of Tin were some of my favorites from the OST.
  7. They just painted their armors in red. The Death Troopers were more interesting, and looked more intimidating.
  8. For those of you who liked the show, The Witcher season 2 will come out only in 2021: https://www.ign.com/articles/the-witcher-season-2-release-date-2021-premiere
  9. 2006's The Wicker Man is actually one of the best comedies of all time. It has Nic Cage dressed on a bear suit punching women, terrorizing small children and being tortured with bees in his eyes. It's almost a parody of the suspense/mystery genre with its unbelievably idiotic scenes. KILLING ME WON'T BRING BACK YOUR GODDAM HONEY!
  10. Every new movie there is a new class of Troopers, that make people think "Oh yeah, they will be great, difficult adversaries for the heroes, instead of the easily defeated common Troopers!", just for them to appear for a few seconds and then vanish. Remember the Death Troopers from Rogue One?
  11. Whats is Disney's problem with classic logos? I've seen on TV that the modernized versions of some of their own classics replace the iconic Disney blue logo from the 80s/90s... With the new CGI, modern, overlong, Mark Mancina scored, logo, that doesn't even have the word "Walt":
  12. I was just listening to The Rocketeer tonight, and... is this villain theme the Death Star motif from A New Hope?
  13. I wonder how, for ANH and ESB, Williams managed to produce releases with two LPs, lasting for 75 minutes of music, while for E.T., ROTJ, the first two Indys, etc., he only released very short LPs, with 40 - 45 minutes each, that aren't very good representations of the scores.
  14. Wow, that's a really tough question, even for a fan like me! lol It changes from time to time, but I guess my top favorite JNH scores are (in no particular order) King Kong, Water For Elephants, The Village, Unbreakable and Dinosaur. But if you want to know more about him, there's two ways in doing that: his more intimate, dramatic scores, and the adventure, larger than life scores. For the first group, there's the supremely underrated Water for Elephants, the hard to listen but rewarding Snow Falling on Cedars, the unknown but also great The Emperor's Club, the tragic and Oscar-nominated Defiance, the recently released (and excellent) A Hidden Life, and almost all of his Shyamalan scores except for The Last Airbender and After Earth. The earlier Shyamalan scores are a great mixture of horror with more tender, beautiful string writing, as in Malcom is Dead for The Sixth Sense, Carrying Audrey from Unbreakable, The Hand of Fate Part 2 from Signs, The Vote and some unreleased cues (available on bootlegs and on YouTube) from The Village, and The Healing from Lady in the Water. If you want an example from his early career, there's his first Oscar nominated score, for Prince of Tides, which has his moments, but not his trademark "JNH sound". As for the second, you can't go wrong with the Kevin Costner scores (Waterworld and The Postman), the Disney animations (Dinosaur, Atlantis and Treasure Planet), King Kong, The Last Airbender, Maleficent and the two Fantastic Beasts scores. Vertical Limit is also interesting, and although I don't listen to these albums very often, there's some cues in scores like Hidalgo, Peter Pan, Water Horse, The Nutcracker and Snow White and the Huntsman that are worth listening once in a while. Not everyone likes his Hunger Games scores, but you can make a great playlist with material from the 4 scores. Avoid his suspense/thriller/action scores with a heavier electronic involvement, such as The Interpreter, Bourne Legacy, Salt, Nightcrawler, Michael Clayton, Dreamcatcher, these are generic and uninteresting scores far below his talent. The best one is Blood Diamond, which has a great main theme, some pretty good action (Diamond Mine Bombed) and emotional (Maddy and Archer, the final 5 cues on the OST) tracks.
  15. What exactly is the Final Order? Those thounsands of Star Destroyers with Death Star-like power to obliterate entire planets (someone please make me forget this movie ever existed)? And how Palpy built them, since he was pratically a corpse? Using the Force? So the Force now grants you powers of building entire ships? Or maybe those idiots cheering for Palpy on Exegol were actually the workers who spent the last 35 years bulding Star Destroyers? If that's the truth, then Rey just annihilated a bunch of blue-collar lower level Sith workers, lol. And yeah, they are probably remote controlled, hence the climax of Poe and the other non-Force wielding characters is to destroy an antenna or something, but I don't think it's too pratical to command thousands of mega ships from one ship, making very difficult for the First (or Final, I don't know anymore) Order to use them strategically. There is so much more interesting stuff that could've been done for the climax of the saga, or maybe just this trilogy. But instead Abrams chose to remake the climax of ROTJ, which had already been done before in some capacity by TLJ. And Abrams did the laziest, most uninspired, remake of all time, with some cringeworthy dialogue comparable to the worst lines in the entire saga.
