  1. On April 10, 2006, we can celebrate the 25th anniversary of the title "Episode IV - A New Hope". And on January 31, 2022 we can celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of the "Special Edition". Today, we can celebrate the release of the Star Wars.

  2. My favorite Horner scores are:

    Battle Beyond the Stars

    Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan

    Star Trek III - The Search for Spock

    Brainstorm

    Krull

    Aliens

    Willow

    The Rocketeer

    I find everything else to be too derivative. Even these scores sound a lot a like in instances, and sometimes it's clearly not even music by Horner. :(

  3. You gotta love that song that punkrock dude is listening to on the bus

    Just we're in the future,

    The things we could've said.

    Let's just push the button,

    We'd be better off dead!

    'Cause I hate you!

    And I berate you!

    And I can't wait to get to you.

    The sins of all the fathers

    Were given to the sons

    The only choice we're given

    Is how many megatons?!

    And I eschew you

    And I say, '*Screw you*!

    And I hope you're blue too.

    I found that here.

  4. I am angry about the handling of Williams' music because it was Star Wars that got me interested in the wonderful world of film music and John Williams. A Star Wars film for me has always been about the wonderful music. When I was a kid, I was thrilled to have 11 records all devoted to the original trilogy. It's some of the finest music ever written and deserves to be heard.

    Now he we are getting a new Star Wars film and a new Star Wars score. I should be excited. But I'm not. First of all, the movie is a tremendous let down, from a dramatic stand point. And on top of that, the music has been utterly destroyed. The thing that got me interested in music has been ripped away from me. Am I taking this personally? No. I'm not saying, "George, I deserve better than this. You owe me." I am however expressing my dissapointment with this. It used to be that Star Wars films were the best in terms of music matching the imagery and telling the story on its own. Not anymore. That's why I'm mad about this.

  5. To me, Superman - The Movie is the best film available on DVD. That's my pick. Plus, as a Williams fan, the score has never sounded better, particularly on the isolated 5.0 music channel. It's a pity that it has all the edits to correspond to the movie. :(
