  1. Recently, I watched the movie for the first time and I didn't hear anything that I really missed on the OST.
  2. Nice and to my mind very typical Herrmann score from 1967 with a beautiful song and a cute moog synthesizer teasing the orchestra from time to time. Like a lot of later Herrmann scores it contains a lot of harmonic traces of Marnie and Vertigo.
  3. For a second I was wondering how it is possible that we both picked the same score, because for any reason, that I don't understand, we usually don't. But then, Avatar. So, here we are again.
  4. The score vote is quite clear. Would not have expected that. As if we were here in some kind of John Williams fan forum.
  5. Geisha suffered for me from two issues. First, the two main themes reminded me of other Williams themes, (Chairman's Waltz shares that significant key change with abandoned in the woods from A.I. and Saruyi's Theme to a side theme from Seven Years in Tibet), secondly, even though Geisha played in Japan and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in China I found both scores comparable in their way of adaptation of traditional asian music elements in a european classical orchestra scores. And in that comparison for me Tan Dun's score wins (which really doesn't happen often with a Williams score in compe
  6. Somehow my Impression is, that mostly Villeneuve takes a bit too much time for the story exposition in his films. So, when you think, now starts the main act, the film is already ending. Just my impression.
  7. Anyway, I am quite happy that the Lord of the Ring trilogy was made by Peter Jackson and not by Denis Villeneuve. It is even surprising to me how little I am looking forward to this Dune movie. Villeneuve movies always leave me unsatisfied somehow.
  8. It's really wonderful. It's not my favourite Myasaki movie but probably my second favourite score of them, after Mononoke.
  9. From the ones listed I've got a crush in Howl's Moving Castle. Wonderful music and a larger than life main theme.
  10. It's no secret, that generalizing is the shortcut to develop some kind of taste and opinions instead of laboriously gathering knowledge and experience.
  11. Anyway, my Impression is that storytelling in many popular media seems to have developed an educational touch, pointing with a giant forefinger to some moral message along a quite generic plot, but maybe that's just because of my bad movie choices or my poor way of reception.
  12. This does not only aply to Star Trek, but to the real world (apart from that replicator thing at least). But also people should not feel too well and not needing to worry about basic needs over a long period of time. Because if they do they become paranoid. So, they always need something to worry about and be kept busy.
