  1. This is the only LLL product I own. If I was rich, I'd own all their releases. But since I'm not, I feel like I chose... wisely.
  2. Kind of doesn't count, but I like the fanedit of The Hobbit that edits it down into one pretty good movie more than King Kong. I don't know if it's so much that he burnt out going into Hobbit as the behind the scenes drama that unfolded. He went into LOTR (and King Kong too, I'm sure) with a lot of preproduction. The execution of The Hobbit movies being such a mess is because 1) all the stakeholders wanted milk the franchise for everything it was worth and put out three movies instead of one or two and 2) because of that reason, Guillermo del Toro walking away from the movies and Jackson ha
  3. There's a variation on it I believe when Rey buries the lightsabers at the end of the movie. OST track is called "A New Home." The motif of Jedi Steps isn't stated but it's a variation on the accompanying parts.
  4. My philosophy re: cue replacements in the editing bay during post production is... is the movie considered a classic? If it is you can't really argue with whether or not the music was butchered. It doesn't matter, the film works incredibly well and that is the ultimate goal of both the composer and the director. You might like the original version more, but the argument about whether or not the decision to replace a segment or cue was right or wrong is a moot point. Now, when it comes to editing the music decades later for a Special Edition and swapping out a Jabba band song for
  5. Hey, it's my annual post to bug you and ask you if you've done any more of these lol. TPM and the AOTC album covers are great!!
  6. I love all of these iterations. Have you taken a stab at Rise of Skywalker yet?
  7. What a great score massacred by a terribly mediocre director. Abrams and his acolytes like Alex Kurtzman are not good storytellers.
  8. I hated The Rise of Skywalker and loved the score. The score has become the soundtrack to my non-existent head canon version episode IX haha.
  9. Hey! I really, really love these. You wouldn't happen to have done any for the prequel scores, would you? Thank you for making these!
  10. Yeah, I always took this as an homage to Kubrick (as A.I. was originally a Kubrick project) since this piece was featured prominently in 2001.
  11. Good post, and honestly never even thought of all those factors. I'm sure there are plenty of filmmakers who would love the chance and are capable of working with a film composer like John Williams. My guess is unproven directors (in the eyes of studios) don't have the clout lay out a filmmaking roadmap that would facilitate that kind of creative process and thus have to resort to more contemporary film scoring methods. Or you're a filmmaker that lucked into directing an episodic Star Wars.
  12. Neat arrangements. Well done! I can tell you're quite skilled and you have a ton of passion for the material. If you're looking for critiques: your medley doesn't feel like it has continuous momentum from front to back. It works married to the video but would distract me listening to it on its own. At times feels like the piece starts, then stops, then starts again etc. It has to do with the repetitive change up in the piece dynamics (pretty frequently a piece enters into the medley at a quiet dynamic until it develops into a louder dynamic). It hampers the flow.
  13. Seems like composers who don't write anything more rhythmically complex than 8th notes are not in much demand these days, if Giacchino's success is anything to go by.
