John Williams himself doesn't take these things for granted. But it's surely a good sign he expects to do as many projects as possible, so I too expect he will do all the Spielberg films in the pipeli

No reason why you should. The Last Jedi has finished recording.   But you do seem to have a tendency of blaming women.

Maybe Williams was keen to relinquish obligations in regards to Ready Player One due to the possibility of having to pay homage to BTTF's music - a theme he's sick to death of being associated with.

Wow, that does some like amateur writing.

I still have no idea what this film is about

 

 

A young man finds some eighties reference in a vr version of second life and becomes the most famous person ever.

It's a story full of references to '80s stuff. JWfanners will love it because they will recognize and relate to it.

But I wanted Spielberg to reference his own films and he is not doing it!

The whole film will basically be this:

 

 

Just references to things people loved from the 80s. No insight into what made them likeable, or any kind of pondering on the nature of nostalgia and how it's essentially warped memories viewed through rose-tinted glasses, exploited on a billion-dollar scale heretofore unheard of. Just scene after scene of "how cool was the 80zzzz, literally everything that happened afterwards was shit and may as well be a post-apocalyptic wasteland!!!!".

 

I guess it's like how some people see Stranger Things. I'm actually a fan of that show, mainly because I find it to be a good story well acted and told, and the 80s is merely an aesthetic backdrop to that. It's not a literal plot point and the pandering seems so much less obvious.

I actually don't know.

 

he did make his video about how Titanic is "really that good" winning me over.

 

 

 

I'm trying to watch this, but I can't get past his delivery. It's just unceasingly fast. I feel like I'm being bombarded by an auctioneer with superhuman lung volume.

Yeah and his Boston accent!  He's an odd duck.  In some ways, a typical neckbeardy comics nerd but surprising at times.

I know basically everyone feels opposite, but if he had to choose one I'm glad Williams is scoring The Papers instead of RPO.

Disappointing, but not entirely unexpected I guess.  Silvestri is a very good replacement, far better than some other options...  (Djiacchino)

It's still awesome that we're getting VIII AND a small bonus score for The Papers.

 

While Ready Player One could've provided an interesting new setting for Williams, the story itself is utter crap, relying entirely on 80s pop culture references (which were never really Williams' thing to begin with)

Image result for nooo vader

 

Silvestri, of course, is terrific. I'm sure I'll love his score. 

 

But nothing can replace Williams. :(:(:(

 

And I liked the book and was really looking forward to this. Such a missed opportunity. 

 

When I first saw the headline, I was praying that maybe it meant Williams and Silvestri were co-writing the score (which would have been pretty awesome). Alas, it was not to be.

I thought Williams had already done some work for RPO or was that speculation? Maybe I'm confusing that with The Papers?  This is disappointing news to those who were expecting another Williams score.  On a positive note, at least we're getting two Williams scores this year.  What will he do for 2018 then?
