    nightscape94 got a reaction from crocodile in Best superhero theme of the 2000s?   
    I have to give Horner some credit. I"m not all that much a fan of his (I like a handful of scores; when he's on, he's really on), but his Spider-man theme gave me quite a thrill in the theater, and I think it's the best of the lot mentioned.

    JWFan just needs to rent out an orchestra. We need out-of-work musicians who can work cheap.

    nightscape94 got a reaction from Brónach in Hans Zimmer's Man Of Steel   
    It plays to most common denominator. It's a very base emotional reaction that a million composers could have achieved. I hate to keep comparing Williams to Zimmer, but something like this just shows you why Williams is an painter and Zimmer is a colorist.

    Williams ain't no one trick pony. He shines just as much in the quiet moments as in the grand brass sections. Small monuments.

    Sorry, I didn't see the requests until I revisited the thread. Sure, I'll upload it at some point. My computer doesn't have a CD drive (newer iMacs got ride of them), so I'll have to upload it when I have access to a different computer.

    Ringo wasn't the best drummer, singer, or musician, but he worked well enough for a band that didn't require a prodigy at that instrument. Anything more would have been in conflict with the stronger personalities. He was an interesting character, and seemed like a good guy.

    nightscape94 got a reaction from Incanus in Lincoln - Theatrical Trailer Discussion   
    The 1st act of War Horse was scored as needed in order to establish an emotional attachment between the boy and the horse which would hold through the second half when they are not together. Also, in an overall sense, the music is there to act as the voice for the concept of mutual love and respect between a boy and a horse. Their bond is set musically, and that is how the horse communicates.
    I'm really getting into these couple of minutes of Lincoln music. Great sound of the orchestra. It's amazing how the horns sound. Really makes you wish you can go back in time and give the 1970s this recording technology.

    I could watch a whole movie of Williams simply sitting at his writing desk and piano marking the score sheet with notes. Seeing him put pencil to paper is magic in and of itself.

    nightscape94 got a reaction from chuck in Remembering The Gorgeous Goldsmith (1929-2004)   
    My interest in Williams has lead me to many great composers that otherwise would have escaped me since they were primarily embedded in the film scoring scene. Goldsmith was amazing, and I really should spend more time with his music.
