    Docteur Qui got a reaction from MaxMovieMan in Jurassic Park 7, written by David Koepp   
    Oh wow, I hoped for Gareth Edwards to helm this but I didn't actually expect it to be the case. Great news - I feel like his Godzilla was an attempt at making Jurassic Park, but it was probably not the best fit (people just want to see the kaiju in kaiju films, Spilebergian suspense was maybe a bad call), though I still really liked it a lot.
     
    The more exciting prospect is that Desplat might get a shot at this - assuming there was no fallout from his Rogue One exit. I suspect that really was a scheduling issue caused by executive meddling, considering the film was essentially taken out of Edwards' hands towards the end of production. If not Desplat then Britell please. Just no Giacchino; I can't stomach any more of his saccharine attempts or clumsy handling of Williams' themes.

    Docteur Qui reacted to Ludwig in John Williams on Variety Cover (article & video)   
    5 things I loved in this article:
    Williams confirms the Jaws theme is three different notes (not two!). He keeps a poster of The Adventures of Robin Hood in his office doorway. Like many others, the author feels that film music succeeding in the concert hall is largely because of Williams. Mangold got emotional at the final Dial of Destiny session because he felt Williams doing his job confirmed a kind of idealism of working in film. Williams will have some free composing time this year that he may want to fill "if there’s an opportunity there that I think I can fill and enjoy doing with people I will enjoy."

    Cool.  Kind of weird, but cool.  Sounds like some sort of secret society in the vein of Eyes Wide Shut, but without the youthful nudity.

    I watched so far 7 episodes of live action Avatar with my kids, and of course they keep telling me, what they like more about the animated series.
    But that aside, this is really a great show. Something like Game of Thrones for Kids. The story, the characters, the dialogues. Everything is pretty interesting and right on point, great twists. This has substance and is told in a smart way.
     
    A story about war, greed, grief and responsibility, loyalty etc. Great stuff.

    Bear McCreary and Desplat would be cool choices. They both worked on Godzilla so they know how to score big dinosaurs. I'd like to see what they would do with Williams' themes.

    I hope it’s Powell, JNH in Dinosaur mode, Desplat in Godzilla mode or Bear McCreary.

    If I remember correctly Desplat leave Rogue One because he had to work on Valerian so he couldn't wait for the reshoot to end

    Excited to see the super talented Gareth Edwards as director, but worried that that means Giacchino again. I'd love to see literally anyone else.

    Because mutants totally haven't been an allegory for the outcasts of society for most of their history 
     
    (I legit can't fathom how people sincerely think this franchise has never tackled those subjects, as if the opening of the first movie/First Class and the one scene from X2 doesn't exist)

    In his sequel era, he sells all of his conspiracy theories to me for billions of dollars, and thenI just kinda make up whatever stupid shit I feel like.

    Docteur Qui got a reaction from Yavar Moradi in Harry Potter TV Series in the works   
    I feel the same way about virtually all of the Wizarding World as portrayed in the films post PoA. Instead of absurdist, magical, interesting architecture we just get... retro real-world buildings. The Ministry of Magic is deliberately modelled after the London and Moscow undergrounds and it shows - on one hand I see how suggesting a time and place can be effective visual storytelling, but it also contradicts the social structure of the magical society as it's portrayed in the books. The buildings are supposed to be weird - most witches and wizards look down on Muggles (whether that's affectionately or sinisterly) so it doesn't make much sense that their aesthetic is virtually the same. It's the same with the clothing/robes - they're supposed to be flamboyant but in the films they're either nonexistent or just lightly tailored suits/variations on Muggle fashion.
     
    Don't get me started on the portrayal of actual magic/spells. As @Holko pointed out everything's strangely mechanical and logical when it should be bizarre and absurd. We never see any interesting spells or charms, especially from GoF onwards - it's all just generic jets of light, shields and explosions. Yates is squarely responsible IMO, for going with the "realistic, grounded and gritty" aesthetic that dominates the franchise. I hope the show goes to someone with vision and flair, someone weird - imagine Terry Gilliam (who Rowling originally wanted to direct) producing this show, it would be amazing!
