  1. I just realized it was an edit the other day, and was dumbfounded because it’s so clever. Normally I’d hate repeating music like that, but it works so damn well. Makes an otherwise schizophrenic cue into a functional concert piece.
  2. 2005. Three scores that year that I consider top-tier masterpieces, Geisha being possibly my favorite Williams, and one slightly lesser but still excellent score, Munich. I can think of years where his output was more iconic, but I can’t think of years when it was better.
  3. Ah, I thought I noticed an awkward volume drop right at 0:31 that is not present on the original album. It’s a shame because I love that album arrangement, even if it’s just looped, and was wanting it clean and remastered.
  4. Mine has a small scratch that doesn’t seem to affect playback. Just gonna leave it be.
  5. I think the film has the odor of late-Spielberg popcorn-fare, but it’s one of his most serious directorial efforts. William’s unique and brilliant score reflects that.
  6. Dude is either 13 or 70 and there is absolutely no middle ground.
  7. Technically, Cruise is already on the cover, just very, very small.
  8. If I recall correctly, though it’s been a while, the book says the aliens had long eradicated all pathogens prior to their plans. So, I guess it was an oversight based on that? Up to you whether you want to consider that
  9. I don’t mind Ray blowing up the tripod. It’s a cool scene. Robbie living is more problematic. Undercuts a lot of what the film is about. Still one of my favorite JW/SS collaborations. This was my gateway film score. I’ve always cherished it.
  10. I have always wished the Victory theme had been used in the marketing. Something like this would have made an incredible final trailer
  11. The cue where Kylo and Rey team up and then everything else.
  12. Wow, so at least the first half of the cue still fit the final cut of the film, and they decided to fuck it up for... yucks, I guess?
  13. I don’t think it’s that puzzling in TLJ. The scene evoked Palpatine torturing Luke in ROTJ so Williams wanted to remind of that scene, if all the other allusions weren’t obvious enough. It’s a touch I like a lot, but doesn’t work as well in light of the fact that Palpatine actually showed up. I don’t read it as Williams having any deep purpose
  14. I’m not convinced Anthem of Evil isn’t a film cue, like the original version of the destruction of Kijimi or something like that. Maybe it’s already confirmed not to be a film cue from the partial cue list?
