    I’m not really expecting JPIII because we just got Lost World, but I’d be happy to be wrong.

    You consider JP3 worse than any of the Jurassic World movies? 
     
    I think JP3 is a masterpiece when compared with Fallen Kingdom and Dominion.

    I never wanted it in the first place. Did I already say I want HP4 and Hook? Because I really do.

    I may be forgetting something that's happened, but what's the problem with ordering direct? I absolutely was if I want something.
     
    I third Da Vinci (and I love A&D too, both in full form), but not for LLL to do. It's out there in great quality and I think there are better things for them to work on right now, i.e. less available things or more in need of remastering.

    Broken record time. JP/// would make my year, Gladiator would be extremely cool, and The Terminal would be the icing on the cake. I'm sure there are some nice surprises that I haven't thought of.

    Everyone is of course entitled to their opinion but man, if someone told me 5 years ago that people would complain that not enough of new scores are unreleased, I wouldn’t have believed it.

    Longer albums is the best new trend in film music in my opinion and rather than think the new JNH ost is too long, I was disappointed that it wasn’t longer, given the number of tracks! 😄
     
    Whenever I listen to a “curated” ost it always feels a bit inconsequential. When listening to scores I want to be engrossed in the musical journey of the full score and highlights style albums just don’t cut it. But of course, to each his own.
     
    In a perfect world new scores would get a short album and a truly complete album (with alts suites etc).

    Ridley Scott seems like the kind of director who would pick a composer he wants to work on the score with today, and not based on the legacy of previous movies in a series.

    Trope reacted to InTheCity in A Rare Glimpse into the studio with Brian Kilgore (LA's first call percussionist - Avatar, Bourne, Williams scores etc..)   
    If you skip to around 1:15 you will see how a percussion session happens, this would have been the exact process for the Bourne Trilogy or Avatar, two of my favorite scores. 
    I thought this may be interesting to some people as Brian hasn't filmed much but has literally played on every soundtrack ever.

    Remembrance Day in the Commonwealth, observed on November 11th, is a solemn commemoration honoring military personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty during conflicts. It is marked by ceremonies, moments of silence, and the symbolic wearing of red poppies to remember and honor the sacrifices made for peace and freedom.
     
    Suggested scores:
    "Saving Private Ryan" (1998) - Soundtrack by John Williams "War Horse" (2011) - Soundtrack by John Williams "1917" (2019) - Soundtrack by Thomas Newman "The Thin Red Line" (1998) - Soundtrack by Hans Zimmer

    Cool, I was close! 
     

     
    These are Powell tracks that integrate Williams' Han theme, but not any older JW themes.

    These are Powell tracks that don't integrate any Williams material. 
     

     
    1 is Adventures of Han, entirely composed by Williams. 
     
    6 is Gonna Be A Pilot, one of Williams' demo cues re-recorded. 
     

     
    This is the Elgarian arrangement of the Imperial March covered above.

    Here are the publishing credits from the liner notes:

     
    Williams has sole credit on The Adventures of Han and the brief 0:30 cue "Gonna Be a Pilot"
    Williams has composing credit and Powell has arranging credit on "Empire Recruitment"
    Powell has sole credit on 8 cues
    They're jointly credited on the rest, but those cues are broken into three entirely separate blocks, based on publishing rights, as seen above.

    In retrospect, what they should have done after Endgame was given most of the legacy characters from the Infinity Saga a rest and just rebooted with X-Men and Fantastic 4. Keep it in the same universe, sure, but keep the references to the Avengers crew to a minimum.
     
    Because IMO most of what's come post-Endgame, even the good stuff, has felt like a leftover. Anticlimactic. You really can't top Endgame, so why even try?  And I really don't think most people are interested in seeing new versions of iconic characters, at least this soon.
     
    It's gotten too big, too sprawling, too many shows and too many characters. The multiverse just makes it worse, confuses audiences and lowers the stakes, knowing that there are an infinite number of your favourite heroes that can be brought back at any time. Now, if the rumours are true, they're just going to tease us with classic Avengers coming back in cameos in the new films just to get people to show up in the cinema. It's neither authentic nor sustainable. 
     
    Eventually they're just going to have to blow it all up and start over. Hopefully, after a long pause.
