Trope reacted to Mr. Who in James Newton Howard - THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS AND SNAKES
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.

Cool, I was close!
These are Powell tracks that integrate Williams' Han theme, but not any older JW themes.
These are Powell tracks that integrate both Williams' Han theme and an old JW theme.
These are Powell tracks that integrate an old JW theme, but not his Han theme.
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.

Oh that sounds GOOD.
Sounds a lot cleaner than the OST or the movie.
Trope reacted to jamesluckard in John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018) - Deluxe Edition 2020 / Intrada 2-CD edition October 31, 2023
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.
Trope reacted to Nick1Ø66 in The MCU - Marvel Cinematic Universe
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.

I think in Mike's own words (or words to similar effect remembered a bit wrong) these clips were the things he always wishes he could include in releases, but isn't allowed. So they felt like a really special privileged peek behind the curtain. Absolutely fascinating stuff.
That, coupled with the request to not tag our location on social media and wotnot added to the general hush hush vibe. But I'm glad Mike has said we're cool to talk about the clips. Trouble is, try as I might, no one at the bus stop seems to care

I’m hoping for Hook or Catch Me If You Can or The Terminal or Deep Impact or The Mask of Zorro or The Perfect Storm or Bicentennial Man or Enemy at the Gates or Iris or A Beautiful Mind or Jurassic Park III or The Godfather Part 2 or Gladiator. Oh, and complete versions of Indiana Jones and Star Wars (of course).

I love Intrada's releases but what is it with their artwork style? They just can't seem to make it look anything other than juvenile. All the non-matching colours and fonts are so clunky and visually unappealing.
I recently ordered LLL's Sabrina, and even though I've never heard that score, seen the film, or know anything about it, the beautiful art style actually compels me to listen to it. The design is sleek and refined and classy, and I'm alerted to start listening out for and appreciating those qualities in the music I'm hearing. Now, I personally love the Solo soundtrack to the point where I don't need some amazing artwork to motivate me to re-listen to it, but if I were on the fence, I don't imagine this particular art style would do a lot to convince me.
Even the re-used OST cover art (which is a design I personally like) is cropped/zoomed in for this CD release so that the top half of the Falcon-inspired cockpit design with additional background details is missing, and Han and co. are no longer positioned in the centre of the image, but awkwardly moved into the top 2/3rds of the frame (with Han's head nearly cut off!).
