    @Dave this is so awesome!! I love graphic design and have enjoyed making the covers, I love the credits you've put on the back too! It's so cool to see a fan version of this and is totally satisfying like a real box set design would be  
     
    DH1 is super front loaded story-wise: we have our first big action set piece today! Enjoy Cue No. 4: Escape from Privet Drive and the short Cue No. 5: Arrival at the Burrow!

    Been having fun composing Raimi-style Spider-Man music over my favorite Spider-Man game lately:
     
    Created a loop for the tutorial boss fight:
     
    And made a full version for the end boss fight which I might turn into a synthesia video at some point:

    Here's something I wrote a few months ago. A piece that goes without warning through various orchestral genres. I might turn it into a full Symphony once I have enough ideas (or genres) for it.

    @bored thanks so much!! I'm excited because I just redid the presets I used to master the celeste for this film to try and give it a more Sorcerer's Stone sound. This project definitely keeps us experimenting with our software. So glad to hear you like it so far!
     
    I'm also psyched about all of the themes at the front of this movie. Neither of us wanted to replace Desplat either, but once we came at it from the standpoint of the existing thematic tapestry it did come together. It's so great to hear that you're enjoying it!

    As for today - this week is one cue, but it fuses two book chapters so it feels like more than it is. Enjoy Cue No. 3: In Memoriam and The Seven Potters!

    As someone who worked on the Raimi Spiderman scores, you definitely should send this to Chris Young.  He'd love it!  You'd get extra points though if you demonstrated more of his scoring techniques.  The boss fight is only a minute long and he's great at extended action sequences if you can demo that.  Also, try to expand more on preexisting material rather than stating it.  For example, do that thing they do but longer.  Don't say what they say.  I hope that makes sense but it's an important distinction.  Great job though!

    Been a while since I posted here, but I composed a new version of Michael McCuistion's old (and very underrated) theme from the first Sam Raimi Spider-Man game a while ago for a now defunct remaster of that game. I included a few more elements from Danny Elfman's music since the game was an adaptation of that film, but otherwise I tried to stay as faithful as possible to McCuistion's original.

    On the topic of superhero music, I also remastered an original Batman theme I composed a while back. I tried to create a mix between the Elfman/Shirley Walker style, and the darker, more brooding music of the Batman: Arkham scores.

    bored got a reaction from Unlucky Bastard in Rian Johnson developing a fourth Star Wars trilogy... Oh my..   
    The worst sin of the sequel trilogy is that I genuinely cannot enjoy John Williams' scores. All of the misquoting of Luke's theme (I'm never calling it the Star Wars theme), the constant use of the force theme, and the mess that is the temp tracking, music editing, and scrambled thematic material make them absolutely unbearable to listen to. 
     
    Not to mention the only new themes that capture my attention are Rey's theme, The Starkiller, and I was going to list a third theme but I completely blanked because the new material is just that uninteresting. Kylo's theme is so short and derivative I can't get any enjoyment in the way Williams uses it, the Resistance theme is quite frankly too cheesy for me, and the rest I can't even remember the melodies to so they're not even worth mentioning. 
     
    It's clear to me in listening to the sequel trilogy's music that Williams was done with Star Wars after the prequels. I hate the prequels more than the sequels, but I remember almost every single solitary note from Revenge of the Sith, but I could not tell you any moments post The Force Awakens musically that stood out. 
     
    Episode 3 was a perfect finale score for the franchise, even leading in beautifully into the original trilogy with Leia's theme and "The Throne Room" reprises being the perfect send-offs not only for the prequels, but Star Wars as a whole. I don't even remember if Williams did anything special for the End Credits for The Rise of Skywalker. 
     
    Rian Johnsons' not doing another Star Wars trilogy? Alright. The franchise's soul has been gone from every film release post 1983 so he sure as shit wasn't going to change that considering how The Last Jedi turned out. Hopefully some of the new Star Wars games can breathe life into the franchise again just like they have since Star Wars Galaxies. Jedi: Fallen Order came close so I have far more hope for that medium than any other.

    What a weird take. It's Episode 8 that swerved into weird bullshit directions, ignoring or disrespecting everything that came before, failing to tell a good story on its own terms and leaving nothing interesting to do in future installments. Oh and it also completely wastes an amazing cast. Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Laura Dern and Andy Serkis all could have done amazing things with a screenplay that gave them literally anything interesting to do. But no. Each of them is just completely wasted.

    Despite some faults (the Finn/Poe/Rose side quest) I thought The Last Jedi was easily the best of the sequel trilogy, and I think Rian Johnson doing all three sequel films would have turned out much better than, say, JJ Abrams doing all three sequel films. But really they clearly just needed to plan them all out and have a unified vision/plan from the beginning. (Say, how come Maz Kanata ended up with Luke's lightsaber again? That "story for another time"? LOL...)
     
    That said, I'm not sad that Rian Johnson is moving on to focus on follow-ups to his amazing Knives Out, which was way better than, well (to be honest), ANY Star Wars film with the possible exception of The Empire Strikes Back. Oh, and though Daniel Craig is my favorite Bond (largely due to Casino Royale; none of his other films were nearly as good) I love his detective character in Knives Out far more. To be honest, I think Knives Out might be one of my favorite films, period.
