  1. Now here is a long post! I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. And if there are any correction suggestions fire away, especially on the nuts and bolts of music theory of which I profess very little knowledge. And many thanks to all the people from this messageboard without whose excellent discussion and insights this analysis would not have been possible. You know who you are. UPDATE December 2016: The analysis now includes information and revisions based on the Lala-Land Records The John Williams Jurassic Park Collection which features the complete The Lost Worl
  2. Some news regarding the sequel: The first Tintin has been very successful around the world. Mr. Jackson is very caught up in The Hobbit for a while. Assuming that it’s a success in America, when do you envision a sequel being able to move forward? Is it being moved forward right now? Kennedy: Oh yeah it is being moved forward, in fact Steven and I were talking about it this morning. We’re working on a script right now, we’ll see a script probably February or March. If we can do some camera capture this summer, which I think we could do, then we would be on track to have the movie either Chri
  3. Hi to all JWFN members. It is great to see such dedication and knowledge to the man who has scored more than just the movies. On that note The History Press and I would like to share word of a new book published now in the UK and September 1st 2018 in the US. John Williams is the spine and soul of this book. Mark O’Connell didn’t want to be Luke Skywalker. He wanted to be one of the mop-haired kids on the Star Wars toy commercials. And he would have done it had his parents had better pine furniture and a condo in California. Star Wars, Jaws, Close Encounters of th
  4. Here is a revised version of the analysis I wrote, gosh, nearly 10 years ago. Again feedback and comments are more than welcome, especially on the technical side. ANALYSIS UPDATED IN 2016 to take into account the LaLa-Land Records complete release of the score. A.I. - Artificial Intelligence A Complete Score Analysis by Mikko Ojala http://www.jw-collection.de/images/ai.jpg Introduction A.I. Artificial Intelligence was a project long nurtured (the idea was produced as early as 1980's) by the late director S
  5. Hello, people...I'm back! Anyway, way back in the year 1977 (the same year that George Lucas' original Star Wars movie came out on 32 to 40 movie theaters and unexpectedly became the most gigantic hit of the land during the summer of 1977 and the following years), while working on the classic science fiction movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"... Filmmaker Steven Spielberg and his music composer John Williams had this Disney song in mind: The very sounds of Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards as Jiminy Cricket singing the song "When
  6. Well the trailer was just streamed live here: http://www.lincolnmoviehangout.com/ I'm sure it will turn up in the usual places soon but for those who saw the stream: What did you think? I think it's looks interesting - SO many famous actors in it! I HATED the use of constant fading in and out of black... why do all trailers these days do that???? Williams' music sounded gorgeous Even if you missed the trailer, go to the stream now, Spielberg is being interviewed. First he talked about directing Daniel Day Lewis, now he's talking about how the book was whittled down to the screen play
  7. Warner Brothers is closing a deal for Lynsey Addario's memoir It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life of Love & War with Steven Spielberg attached to direct, with Jennifer Lawrence starring. http://deadline.com/2015/03/steven-spielberg-jennifer-lawrence-warner-bros-its-what-i-do-lynsey-addario-war-photographer-1201384706/ No telling whether Spielberg will actually make this, or let it lapse for someone else to pick up.
  8. I'll repost my review here at this point and I will be making updates once I have seen the film to make more accurate comments on how the music relates to the story and the drama. Lincoln Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by John Williams A Review By Mikko Ojala The 26th collaboration between Steven Spielberg and John Williams takes them to the turbulent Civil War era of American history, the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. The upcoming motion picture Lincoln focuses on the last four months of the president’
  9. Apologies if we had one of these before, the search function is still not right, so you can merge if you wish. In any case... http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=29282'>ROBOPOCALYPSE!!! I hope someone makes it, cause that's a great title.

  11. I'm not sure if you guys know it yet, but it seems like Jurassic Park IV has been put by the wayside (for the 100th time) and Universal Pictures has decided to re-release the first film in digital 3D. The re-release will hit theaters July 19, 2013 (Universal has moved the Tom Cruise-starrer Oblivion to April 26 from its original July 19 spot). http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=jurassicpark3d.htm I know my dad will be happy to see this in theaters again...
  12. I don't know who's aware of NIGHT SKIES and who's not. I imagine most of you are, as you're all Williams fans, which eventually traces back to Spielberg in some way, shape or form. Anyway, here's some info on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_Skies In short, it was apparently going to be E.T. minus the Reeses-eating, doe-eyed alien and kids who were jumped up on Pepsi Cola. Well, related to this, Rick Baker, the badass SFX artist, recently posted an image of the NIGHT SKIES alien on his Twitter page. Here it is: https://twitter.com/TheRickBaker/status/469494395813638146/photo/1 Shame th
  13. Dreamworks will be releasing Amistad on Blu-ray in the US on May 6. It's up for preorder on Amazon.com.
  14. http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=7943 Universal announces Jaws on Blu-Ray, august 2012
  15. http://www.hometheat...ry-blu-ray-book The extra contents will feature Warner at War, a 2008 documentary narrated by Steven Spielberg and with original music by John Williams (according to IMDb).
  16. Lincoln is an interesting film. It's not a biopic about his life, it is not a character study, it’s not an epic production with a huge scope. Other than the strange ending in the film, it's a story that can be both simple and very complicated that takes place in the last few week of January of 1865. The United States of America have been in a civil war for the past 4 years; many southern states have seceded from the union and formed a Confederacy. The southern economy at the time relied on the slave labor of african slaves, who were not treated as people but as property and could be bough
  17. Saw this today on twitter and am posting the info for all JWFans in the Atlanta area: Wednesday, October 24, 2012, 8:00 p.m.: Academy Award-winning composer John Williams and Academy Award-winning director and producer Steven Spielberg will join the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for “An Evening with John Williams, Steven Spielberg and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.” Mr. Williams will guest conduct the Orchestra in a selection of his most popular original film compositions while movie clips are shown on a giant screen and Mr. Spielberg will host the concert.

  18. Spielberg's long-time associate producer Kathleen Kennedy has been named co-chair of LucasFilm as successor of George Lucas: http://www.deadline.com/2012/06/lucasfilms-names-kathleen-kennedy-as-co-chair/ Interesting.
  19. Max. 4 possibilities people. For me, that would be: The Adventures of Tintin Escape from the Karaboudjan The Captain's Counsel The Clash of the Cranes
