    Unlucky Bastard reacted to Gruesome Son of a Bitch in The argument for and against: REMAKES   
    It has Charles Grodin completely hamming it up, Bridges the most heroic leading man and easily the most attractive of the three women.
    I'm going to address this shit, because you brought it up. You immediately reminded me of this. Gus Van Sant's Psycho was not a shot-for-shot remake, but they billed it as such in the promotion? Hitchcock never showed all this random shit during the murders like cows on a rural highway and naked blindfolded chicks, or whatever...? A scene was even missing from the remake. I mean, I just feel ripped off because it wasn't genuinely done shot-for-shot. If he wasn't going to go all the way, why did he even bother to place such restrictions on his film to begin with? What a complete and total disaster, as Donald Trump would so eloquently put it.

    He thinks I'm an element on the periodic table.

    Unlucky Bastard reacted to Thor in New Williams fanfare at presidential inauguration?   
    It's ridiculous to even nurture the notion that Williams would write anything in any form or shape for Donald Trump. But of course -- they may have used some of his existing music (providing they didn't need his permission, like with Goldsmith's AIR FORCE ONE thing) or had a composer create 'soundalike' music. I suggest contacting the band through e-mail to find out.

    Unlucky Bastard reacted to crumbs in New Williams fanfare at presidential inauguration?   
    I highly doubt Williams would want anything to do with Trump's inauguration. Just my two cents.
     
    Not that we really know his political opinions but I doubt they're too far removed from Spielberg's (Hillary supporter).

    Because Williams would not have anonymously composed a fanfare for this event.

    I wonder why we can't though? Not that I'm particularly interested in doing so, but still. I mean, the recent political talk didn't exactly explode the forum into ashes and dust as once feared, did it. But really, a massive meh either way from me. And it works both ways anyway, doesn't it - I can treat mods like children too.

    It was more appalling when Obama used music composed by John Williams for a Mel Gibson character that viciously murders British soldiers (portrayed as loons that set fire to churches filled with innocent women and children) with a tomahawk and teaches his kids to pick guys off with rifles. It wasn't even remotely appropriate.

    Hang on, did you just say that you decided to vote for a racist, sexist hatemonger* simply because he happens to have a cameo in a film scored by Williams and because he used Goldsmith music in his campaign (against the express wishes of one of its producers, by the way, and presumably Goldsmith's own ideas; see here)?

    The fact that he was in a Williams-scored scene and that he used Goldsmith's Air Force One theme did influence my vote.

    Only brassy, patriotic and noble film music will allowed in America once Trump takes over.
     
    Surely The Imperial March would've been the more fitting introductory music for Donald Sr?

    They should have used John Carpenter's Halloween main theme.
     
    It only makes sense, I mean Carpenter used a shot of Trump's face for the original opening credits!!!

    Indeed, The Omen is much more appropriate

    Our research tells us that voters like Goldsmith.

    As John Takis said on Facebook: That's not good enough for Trump. Only Oscar-nominated Goldsmith does him justice.

    Playing a regular blu-ray on a 4K UHD machine needs a 4K TV to get the upscaling effect. When that's done, it looks surprisingly okay, depending on how the image was mastered.
