    Stark reacted to crypto in Ramin Djawadi - UNCHARTED (2022)   
    And his work was mediocre, to put it mildly. A huge step down from Greg Edmonson's scores for the trilogy.
     
    I still don't understand why he wasn't asked back for U4/LL.

    Stark reacted to Manakin Skywalker in Ludwig Göransson & Joseph Shirley's THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT (2021)   
    I'm still convinced that the similarity to Powell's "secrets theme" is just a coincidence, but the inclusion of the Pikes in this episode was an unexpected development. Perhaps there is more to it after all. Maybe that will turn out to be the main link between the flashbacks and the present? Guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Stark reacted to HunterTech in What is your favorite score to a Spiderman movie?   
    It's everything. The themes are fantastic and incredibly well utilized. The action material is top notch, having the fluidity and propulsion that more recent scores wish they had. It's emotional in a way that is just right and not overwrought. It's so incredibly well paced and with little filler that it's partially ruined the medium for me. All in all: just the perfect score for my tastes.

    You could maybe blame this on nostalgia a bit, but given how other scores from the period don't hold up as much for me (plus the fact I'd only be familiar with much of it fairly recently), I feel it's just that good. A great shame there is no official release and the bootleg situation is so messy (though not if you know where to look ;)), since there is a lot one can appreciate better on its own terms.
     
    Just for funsies (mostly because @Stark asked), I did a large thematic breakdown for just this specific score:

    Stark got a reaction from Henry Sítrónu in Horner vs. Silvestri poll   
    Silvestri writes (or sometimes writes) incredibly complex orchestral music, while Horner was absolutely unmatched at sheer emotion - so I put Silvestri for the first and Horner for the second.

    Beck and company did an excellent job with this series, and he’s proving himself to be the best person out there at connecting other people’s themes.

    Wow, Beck used Yelena's theme a lot in episode 5.
    I think of all the composers in the MCU, Beck is maybe the best in using themes from other composers. They're very subtle mostly, but they always make an impact.
     
    - Ant-Man: Silvestri's Avengers & Jackman's Falcon Theme
    - WandaVision: Giacchino's Doctor Strange
    - Hawkeye: Balfe's Yelena
     
    I think it's great that the MCU does this more often.

    Stark reacted to mrbellamy in Avatar 2, 3 and 4 or how James Cameron stopped worrying and pulled The Hobbit on us   
    Don't forget when he put this out too, of the new cast:
     

     
    I can't help but laugh the whole time waiting for this. I'm having flashbacks to when the first Avatar photo was released and it looked like nothing.
     

     
    I feel like he's bound to disappoint at some point with all these but so far he's 2 for 2 with people just making fun of him until he laughs all the way to the bank. 
     
    Not that Avatar 2 isn't a guaranteed hit, anyway, and I know Avatar's long-term legacy already isn't anywhere close to Titanic despite the box-office receipts, so in that sense he didn't repeat. I just feel like Jim is a crazyman and it's like he puts out these lame promos on purpose. Like he wants that bar low so people's heads explode. Or maybe it really does look exactly like that and somehow in the film it hypnotizes you into thinking it's revolutionary. Because he's a voodoo witch doctor. 
     
    Or maybe it'll be a toilet movie that flops. I feel idiotic predicting anything either way. James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is James Cameron.

    Black Adam looks like it could be an exciting new gig for James Newton Howard. He is not currently involved but since the director worked with him on Jungle Cruise this year (last year?), there could be a chance!

    I’m looking forward to more Djawadi music in this universe, and I’m also glad he’s composing it because that makes him less likely to be hired for LOTR!

    It feels very "era defining" that Thrones Season 8 and TROS were the same year.  Or at least just coincidental

    Late to the conversation, but Pagemaster is a very nice fantasy Horner score (though the expansion only adds like 5 minutes).
