    Ollie reacted to Quintus in Steven Spielberg at the Recording of the Music for Saving Private Ryan   
    I think you read it wrong. Honestly, I think Williams wants to end Steven's life here.

    Skyfall should have won for cinematography.

    Ollie got a reaction from Joni Wiljami in Best Score Oscar Poll 2013: who WILL win vs. who SHOULD win   
    Who cares if Williams already has 5 Oscars, why should that stop him from winning?
    I mean Alan Menken won too many Oscars for his medicore scores, the songs were dserving for the most part. So why shouldn't Williams be able to add to his collection?
    In all seriousness this is a weak year for film music as far as awards go, none of the 5 nominees really stand out. They've all done superior work that's been ignored in the past.
    If Williams' work is better than the rest then give him the damn award.

    Someone found a new word to use. I've middling interest in a third trilogy but I've zero interest in anything any time period between the terrible prewuels.

    I wont.
    Thomas Newman has written much better and much more deserving of an Oscar music.

    It would be nice if the composer and songwriter work together to create a memorable theme / song that can be used throughout the score.
    Also bring back the damn gunbarrell.

    Ollie got a reaction from BLUMENKOHL in Get John Williams a star on the Walk of Fame!   
    I'd say that it's probably something Williams isn't interested in or he'd probably already have one.

    Ollie got a reaction from Ricard in JW's Oscar prospects   
    It would be a shame if Skyfall wins any music Oscars, especially since Barry was snubbed for his superior work on the series. Newman has done better work that should have netted him an Oscar or 2 already for best score.
    Even Adele's song is below the standards set for Bond songs.
    But then 2 of the btter scores this year weren't even nominated so who knows what surprises await.

    Ollie got a reaction from Ricard in The one John Williams score everyone seems to love that you just don't get...   
    That's a false assumption to make.
    Quite a few of us fell in love with the music upon our first viewing of the film and would have loved to have walked into a record store and seen a double LP on the shelf.
    The last 5 years have seen a wealth of excellent film music I've been waiting for, that I wanted when I first saw the film and realized the score was good / great at that time.
    Yeah same here, rather predictable, by the numbers score that sounds like a mishmash of previous works, dissapointing and not worth an Oscar nod.

    Ollie got a reaction from BLUMENKOHL in 55Th Annual Grammy Awards (John Williams nominated for Tintin OST)   
    I believe I've made my feelings previously known on how disappointing both film and score were.
    The fact they are proceeding with a sequel is mind boggling given the poor box office. The overseas was better but not anywhere near what one would expect to proceed with another film.
