  1. Thanks
    Trope got a reaction from Tydirium in Simon Franglen's AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER (2022)   
    So I ended up inputting this page of score into Finale (notation software) and bounced out the resulting audio. Enjoy this brief portion of music!

    Trope got a reaction from Smeltington in Titanic - 2023 theatrical re-release (HFR & 3D)   
    I saw it yesterday in cinemas for the first time! And also for the first time I thought the 3D was actually immersive. I have never been a fan of 3D, but for some reason I felt that it worked very well here. Additionally, the picture was stunningly clear and the effects/CGI looked as good, if not better, than most films that have come out in the last 5 years.
     
    And while I'm still fascinated at how much Horner's score was re-edited and shuffled around and spliced and layered etc. etc. (and I'm still trying to figure out where pieces of music were originally intended to fit in), I think the choice to end the film with "A Life So Changed", "Rose" and then bring it home with "Unable to Stay, Unwilling to Leave" was a brilliant move by Cameron and the editing team, and it affected me more than I was expecting (considering I've seen it all before many times). I understand that Horner wrote "An Ocean of Memories" to the original (now alternate) ending, which was all over the place in terms of tone, and as a result, it never felt like a completely satisfying conclusion to the musical narrative.
     
    I also think it was a good choice by Cameron to dial back or remove much of the overbearing synth voices throughout the picture (i.e. "2 1/2 Miles Down", "Rose's Suicide Attempt", "Rose", etc.) - While I enjoy their use in the Southampton sequence at the beginning of the film for creating that sparkly "new age" effect, elsewhere they do sound rather dated by modern standards and moving them back in the mix has certainly aided the longevity of the film itself IMO.
     
    Overall, I enjoyed the film a lot and am thankful that Horner had the opportunity to create one of the most iconic and emotionally resonant scores of the last 50 years.

    I'm sure somebody has already brought this up, but listening back to Return of the Jedi, I found this particular phrase at 0:16 (then again at 1:52) in "Alliance Assembly" reminded me of Obi-Wan's theme. Not exact notes/harmonies, but the phrase contour and structure.

    Wow!!!! The 2-parter (Ep. 7 & 8) midseason was incredible.
    It was a really good political thriller.
    I felt that the scenes in the Senate were maybe the best it was e er done. It really felt like a true Senate that was debating over how to rule the Galaxy. Then add all the characters from both Clone Wars & Rogue One that showed up for cameo, it was just really well done.
     
    And I really liked that Senator Chuchi got a larger role in both episodes. She was the driving force behind the story moving forward. Very well done.
     
    I also wanted to note how in these episodes  It really felt like the Empire was incredibly dangerous and scary. It's been a long time I felt that way. Mostly during the coversation in the Senate or with Senator Chuchi it always felt like the Empire was behind every corner.
     
    Couple small things I really like:
    - The Bad Batch never using blasters on the Clones but always non-lethal.
    - The music has really been excellent this season. Can't wait for the album(s)
    - Palpatine's entrance into the Senate gave me goosebumps. He really is such an interesting character.
    - I did not expect to Rampart to be taken out so early, but it did make the point that The Empire is unstoppable.
     
    I hope this continues for the entire season because this was peak Star Wars. Loved it!

    I was so disappointed to see there was no way to listen to the music when I watched the movie last year... but fortunately a japanese label is handling the release (they did the same for Coupez! last summer, another french movie).

    Upon re-watching this film in my first-ever live-to-projection concert with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, I can confidently say that the minute of music from 0:25-1:25 has become one of my favourite hidden gems from this beautiful score. It is absolutely pitch-perfect for the scene which it accompanies. Desplat knows how to hit the audience in the feels with a wonderful lightness of touch.

    Yeah, and it'll arrive on the same year as the Matessino-produced "The John Williams Star Wars Collection" and "The John Williams Indiana Jones Collection", two boxes containing every single second of music recorded by JW for all SW and IJ movies he ever worked on. Besides, it'll be only an year after the four-disc Hook complete edition, which will include songs for the movie that even Williams himself didn't remember writing. All JWFans who haven't left Earth to work on the Mars terraforming project or weren't enslaved by a despotic artificial Intelligence known as "Meta-Google-Apple" will celebrate with their flying cars on the street.

The only piece I can't place is "TO CATANIA (1:05-1:42)", which is unused and may appear before "BIG BABY IL DUCE MARCH" or perhaps before "THE DOGFISH".
