  1. 5 stars. How can you not mention "Gillian's Escape"? That's a fantastic cue. And of course "For Gillian" and the finale of "Death on the Carousel" ("Gillian's Power" on the film version).

    And the movie is very good.

  2. I don't need to hear notes everytime a ship lands or someone walks into a room...

    And a good storyteller would be sure to cut these moments out, but that's not what this discussion is about.

    A movie is over scored when the music is so omnipresent it no longer provides the emotional backbone needed to be effective. Just as much can be said by the lack of music.

  3. I respect her opinion but I refuse to tolerate name calling

    Sorry Neil, but according to the reply you gave, you don't respect it. And no one's name calling. Yet.

    Perhaps your definition of name-calling differs from mine. I see her responding with "idiot" to one of my posts. What would you call that?

    And yes I absolutely provoked a discussion about music. That's what this board is about. Sadly, the music part of that seems to have been lost in this thread.

  4. I've been discussing her opinion. I went after the opinion. She chose to come after me, the poster. There is a huge difference there. She can like "Anakin's Betrayal" all she wants. I didn't call her names over that, nor would I. I respect her opinion but I refuse to tolerate name calling. That's not what happens in a good discussion.

  5. Steef has time and again displayed a vast knowledge and understanding of the world beyond film music. He has been a good friend and he loves cats. To call him that is wildly inaccurate.

    Besides, it's not like he picked some second rate Williams cue from a third rate picture as the cue that blows him away. He picked a stunning Goldsmith cue, one that isn't really talked about that often (unlike the war horse "Enterprise" that I picked), and as is usual with Stefan, he's right! "The Treatment" is a fantastic cue, and one I can listen to all day.
