  1. I think it’s going to be cancelled, and that breaks my heart because this was probably my last chance to see Williams. But it’s for the best.
  2. I stand corrected. Is that the only appearance that’s not tracked out of Falcon Flight?
  3. Well, it definitely does sound like Poe’s theme or a new variation of it to me, but not in the sense that Ben’s theme is later in the film. It’s not a new, recurring idea, but a variation that, as far as we know, was only written to appear that one time. Just sound editors did their thing and mucked it up.
  4. Similarly, I am skeptical of claims that the heroic melody from Falcon Flight is a new theme/motif as many including that review claim. As far as I can tell, Falcon Flight was just chopped up and pasted all over the movie. I didn’t hear anything that sounded like that idea used in different contexts by Williams
  5. Seems like JJ, in all his fanboyism, thought it was enough for Williams just to be involved in the film, like his name was more important than his work. Johnson was more interested in actually collaborating with Williams. Of course, TFA is still a masterpiece to my ears and the best of the three in score, but it’s faults (low mixing, short/choppy cues) speak to that different approach. I think TLJ has more going on under the hood.
  6. I think if everyone contributed say $20, we could make a serious go. We’d just need to designate one person who everyone trusts to manage it.
  7. lmao As someone who has actually been featured on that very news affiliate, I can tell you they are garbage muckrakers and no one takes them seriously. I wouldn’t consider them representative of the media.
  8. I would have paid that much for it in lossless. Those 192 kbps files suuuck. I know some people here don’t really mind, but I’d rather not even listen to them in that quality.
  9. He was nominated for ESB. They reference his nominations, not his wins, unless I’m misunderstanding the point being made here
  10. It’s definitely because you listened to the FYC. I didn’t listen to the FYC and barely hear the cue change.
  11. I guess technically the scene references his 52nd nomination as well
  12. It’s especially bonkers that it was excluded since it was tracked all over the film. It plays like 3 or 4 times. It’s pretty hard to miss.
  13. I used to care about Williams winning because it meant a lot to me that America (and people from many other countries, of course) was watching, and I wanted people to see my dude up there. But now no one even really watches the Oscars anyways with their ratings worsening every year, so...
  14. Yeah, buying tickets was a complete disaster and then they were sold out. Managed to get a few way in the back of the balcony.
  15. At least we knew what Luke and Leia represented as a theme. I don’t think anyone here is completely confident what Anthem of Evil specifically represents except “bad!”
  16. Honestly, I suspect, considering Abrams was clearly interested in churning up as much surface-level Star Wars iconography as possible for cheap nostalgia points, that Abrams, unsatisfied with not having a big, evil theme for this trilogy as opposed to the shorter ideas for Ren, asked Williams to make a new bad guy theme to give this trilogy it’s own Imperial March, even though there wasn’t any need for one. That would explain why the idea is so nebulous in what it represents and why it’s not developed in a typical manner. But it could just as likely be it was whittled away in post.
  17. Thinking the media is in cahoots to deceive you, the only person who knows the real truth, rather than just being an industry full of frequently dumb people who live in a bubble because they all come from the same socioeconomic background, is a form of faux-wokeness unto itself. And I don’t mean that as an excuse to not read things critically.
