  1. John Williams is probably the composer most associated with the Olympic Games, with three themes comissioned for the 1984, 1996 e 2002 events, plus a great piece made for NBC in 1988. However, many other composers had works comissioned for the Olympics. I'm going to list here the ones I'm aware of, and I would very much like your contribution to make this list as complete as possible. 1896 - Athens Spyridon Samaras - Olympic Anthem (declared the official Olympics Anthem since 1958) 1964 - Innsbruck Bugler's dream (Leo Arnaud for the album Charge! in 195
  2. Usually not a Marvel fan, but enjoying the series, and the score by Natalie Holt is very Dr. Whoesque, love it. One of the better Marvel scores, so far, IMHO. Hope she gets to the big MCU movies, they sure could use a little more personality in the scores. (exceptions are the Ant-man music by Beck and Giacchino's Doctor Strange).
  3. Thanks for mentioning the podcast, we really appreciate it.
  4. I think there's a lot of score, even some mickeymousing in the funny scenes. The main theme is very charming indeed, but i prefer the theme for Lucas's friend, Alberto, like in the second half of Take me gravity. This theme in particular is similar in style to his main Wendy and Beasts theme, for past scores.
  5. I listened to the score a few times, very good use of electric guitars and female voice in a few tracks, must be great with the movie, set in 1970's London, but not a very enjoyable listening experience isolated. Of course this can change after actually watch the movie.
  6. I understand that Prince Philip visited Boston in 1992 and Williams was commissioned to write this piece.
  7. Great idea for a thread! Besides the great Godzilla theme by Ifukube, the main titles for the 1960s Toho Godzilla vs King Kong is a favorite. The requiem Ifukube composed for his last score, Godzilla vs Destoroyah is beautiful. The new Honkelborg score is so-so, but found it a little better than his usual output, which I tend to dislike. There's a few electronics in the lenghty Tasman Sea that sounded cool, but that's it. Godzilla's new theme is hammered down in the same format all the time, Kong's theme is very unmemorable to me, and couldn't find any really good material.
  8. I liked both movie and score, it's a very smart approach to slowly reveal the Captain theme through the movie, and not overplay it. In the album, JNH altered the order of some tracks, probably to have this theme spread through it. I very much prefer to hear There is no time for stories in front of Kidd visits Maria. Hope he gets an Oscar nod for this.
  9. The movie is very weak, and Clooney insists on trying to create false actions scenes, and poor Desplat tries to make dream sequences and alarm beeps sound exciting and dangerous. The main theme is pretty good and sounds like a requiem, and the child theme is beautiful. The cues The Midnight Sky and Iris in the Stars represent them very well.
  10. I liked the score a lot too, finally Zimmer delivered a great upbeat superhero soundtrack. The truth theme is amazing. His music for Batman and Superman certainly fitted the vision of Nolan and Snyder, but his work for the Spiderman / Electro film was so bland.
  11. Just listened to Enola Holmes (Daniel Pemberton), a charming score with a very good main theme. A pleasant listen.
  12. I'm having a great time reading this new book by Paul Hirsch, the master editor of Carrie, Ferris Bueller's Day Out and, of course, Episodes IV and V. Hirsch tells terrific stories about each film of his career, from the beginnings with Brian De Palma (which he calls his true mentor), and almost always has something to say about the composers. He tells things I wasn't aware of, like producer George Litto (which he clearly dislikes) wanting a pre-Jaws John Williams to score Obsession (1976), promprty refused by De Palma, who was very keen on hiring Bernard Herrmann. The Herrmann
  13. hahahaha sorry about eventual english cacophony, it's not my first language, but I bet these "new"Amazing Stories plots felt unoriginal even for the original run of the Twilight Zone
  14. The directors like that sound, it has the sound of a much grittier NY than the one we have today. I think it fits the movie very well (great movie, by the way)
  15. Saw episodes 1 and 2, the plots felt so old. Even the new opening credits looks kind of odd with that great theme (one of my favorites).
