  1. Saw the new Potter yesterday. It was good, especially the first hour or so. After that, it went a little too much into teasing the final movie and showing close ups of emotionally disturbed teenagers. The score is good, though there´s no theme or motif to remember after the entire movie.
  2. I once again have to say that I think John Williams just can´t write big orchestral themes and bombastic soundtracks as he did earlier because there´s no demand for it. I mean, if you look at his recent scores, many of them just don´t have the need for character themes, broad orchestral music etc. This style of scoring would even have been awkward in films like munich or WOTW. Another issue is the way movies are made today. Hardly any movie today is finished before it goes over to the composer. Usually they are edited until the very last moment, which causes problems for Williams´ style, especially with action sequences. Wherever Johnny had the ability to write good themes and "impressive" scores (Potter, Geisha) he did it. So i think his talent is definitely not declining, but the demand for the scores he likes to write is...
  3. He´s not surprised. Well, i kind of agree with Josh. Although Johnny definitely had better soundtracks in his career, i really believe that KotCS is as good as today´s soundtracks can get. I haven´t heard a better Soundtrack since at least PoA, maybe even longer! Besides, i believe the Soundtrack that many people in here are waiting for (a broad symphonic soundtrack filled with lots of impressive themes and variations of those, like Johnnie´s works in the 80´s) is never going to happen again. There´s no real need for it, and the entire movie industry has changed so much that it´s virtually impossible to write such a score.

  5. I think it´s a little unfair to compare it to the old 3 indy scores without having seen the movie, especially with arguments like "The action cues are more goofy than serious". I mean, what if the action sequences are goofy in their style? Should he write dark material which would absolutely not fit the mood of what´s seen on the screen.
  6. Just wait, for we will all have in our music library soon
  7. My Goodness. Listen to the "Finale" preview and tell me that Williams is not at his best here! I dare you! Sounds really good, I´m thrilled to hear the whole thing after these clips
  8. In other words: If, in the past, Bay had chosen to direct the projects that - in his opinion - sucked, he´d probably have made some good movies.
  9. Of course, they're not gonna show all the new REALLY good stuff in the trailer! I don´t mean the scenes they show, but the editing of the trailer, it´s pace, the music etc. It´s just a bit uninspired, i think, but that´s no problem as long as the film itself is good.
  10. The new trailer looks good, but rather uninventive...however, it´ll generate more excitement, and that´s what it´s supposed to do
