  1. I actually would not trust 3 Star Wars fans to come up with a story in two weeks that wasn’t masturbatory, fan-service garbage, but I guess that’s what we got anyways with TROS. 🤷‍♂️
  2. My wife hates John Williams, but her boyfriend is actually a big fan.
  3. Those are the best. Not only do I remember where I was when I first heard TFA, but my boyfriend remembers where I was because I was spamming him with live updates.
  4. I generally start between 2.5 and 3 and then go from there. If I feel meh then it goes down. If I feel the film is successful, it goes up. Ultimately, I think it comes down to emotional response. I wouldn’t start at either extreme personally because they are just that, extremes. When I look at other profiles and see they rarely give out 5 stars, it makes it a lot more meaningful when they do. I wouldn’t rate films you didn’t finish.
  5. @Sandor, what a truly lovey post. Thank you so much for sharing.
  6. It’s a famous copypasta. People just type in random celebrities into it.
  7. It plays in a bunch of the rides. There’s a bunch of music medleys that play over the rides. As far as I could tell, the ambient version is only at the entrance. Most of what plays in the park proper is source “alien” music.
  8. I literally walked through the entrance an hour ago. The Williams version plays plenty elsewhere in the park. The ambient version works well as a transition.
  9. Like I said, not an expert. I don’t know the reason why beyond it doesn’t seem like an error to me. The clicking here reminds me of the clicking there is all I mean. Just luckily it’s only confined to one short track here. I don’t think it is a big deal except that it’s disappointing the previous release is better on this one track.
  10. Seems to me like elements that are degrading over time rather than an error. It’s not on the original release. But I’m not an expert on these things. I’ve noticed this type of clicking on a lot of Goldsmith expansions over the years like the most recent Night Crossing where I actually prefer the previous release as a result. But it’s not super loud on this release and only maybe a minute. It’s not a huge deal.
  11. Yeah and it’s on the OST rebuild on disc 2 in “The Set Up”, which covers the same material. Disappointing but it’s an improved set otherwise.
  12. I ordered mine only two hours after it went on sale and only received a notice that my order was awaiting shipment several days ago. No shipment notification.
  13. Might be my favorite Goldsmith cue, though this melody is very sparsely used in the score
  14. My impression of it after one pass through was that it’s pretty much just the melody and style of the end credits from “The Vanishing” repeated over and over for a whole score (presumably similar to how he reused the rejected Alien Nation cue for The Russia House?). It’s not unpleasant, but also not especially memorable.
  15. I don’t think it’s quite as good/great as the sequel scores, but it’s pretty close. I’d put it a hair below “great”. I would place the HTTYD scores in that category though
  16. Yup. I tuned out when he said TLJ was a disappointment. And I know he couldn’t have known, but it’s pretty hilarious he suggested TROS could be this franchise’s Return of the King
  17. That was a great piece, @TownerFan . Thank you for sharing. Is Tim Greiving well known in the film score community? I thought it was strange he seemed relatively-well versed in Williams’ use of themes and classical references in the film until I noticed he was listed as a film score journalist. There must not be many of those, but I haven’t heard of him.
  18. Images is probably the most capital-A Art film Williams ever scored. Even in Altman’s filmography, it’s a pretty strange entry. Recommended for that aspect alone.
  19. Airbender is his best collaboration with Shyamalan. You should really make time for it. It’s JNH in full fantasy mode, and it rocks. After Earth is a snooze though.
  20. “The Meeting with Mao” has always stuck with me as one of the best uses of Williams’ music ever. Kind of throws water on any discussions that Williams only knows brassy bombast and can’t do dramatic scoring.
