For all the flaws the movie has, I wish Williams had continued his collaboration with Oliver Stone and scored Alexander. What a wonderful canvas it would have provided him

Everything.

Thank god, Williams didn't score Alien, otherwise we wouldn't have got Goldsmiths's Alien.

SUPERMAN II

HP 4 - 8

THE COLOR PURPLE

READY PLAYER ONE

QUINTET

LOST IN SPACE

That proposed Peter Pan musical, with Michael Jackson (...or, maybe not...:unsure:)

A JW-scored POLTERGEIST would have been interesting, but I'm more than happy with what we have.

Ditto, HEAVEN AND EARTH.

 

 

Any further collaboration between Williams and Altman would have been great.

I would have loved a Goldsmith HP score after Williams departure from the series, but that wouldn’t have been possible anyway. :(

 

Aside from HP, I’m not too disappointed with Williams known missed opportunities in regards to film scores.

Jerry Goldsmith should have done a lot of scores instead of James Horner, Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer:

Gladiator

Batman

Batman Returns

Titanic

Hannibal

The Fugitive

...

JG instead of DE on Batman or Batman Returns? Absolutely not. Never. Those two scores are perfect.

I would like to keep Howard Shore's LOTR scores in the films but I wish Williams would've actually written the soundtrack albums.

 

I love Shore's scores, probably more than anything Williams would have done for the films had the project landed on him; but I do wonder what he would have done.

 

I know Horner was approached for the project before Shore, but in that case I have a strong sense of what that would have been like. I would have probably enjoyed it very much, but it wouldn't be as unique as The Lord of the Rings ended up being.

The thread title should be "Films you wish were scored by Williams."  As currently stated, it means we are ranking our wishes that music currently heard in such films was written by Williams.

Great idea! Altered the title of the thread!

Avatar would have been an interesting one?

Definitely the Potters from 4 --> would have been wasted talent but the Color Purple would have been nice by Johnny

H4rry Potter had potential to make for a great Williams score.  A theme for the Triwizard Tournament and/or the individual three tasks, some ballroom music for the Triwizard dance, elegy material for the end of the movie.  

 

Order of the Phoenix and The Half Blood Piss far less so.

They're a musical mess without much structure, they don't reach the level of dramatic they want and the movies are overscored.

Goldsmith's The Shadow was inspired from Elfman's Batman, but he brought it to perfection without the flaws of the original.

I doubt Williams would have been very inspired by the film.  The chance to work with Spielberg really made Silvestri bring his A-game.  

  I dunno, sounded pretty bland to me, especially with the film

 

At least we would have gotten an 80's style score from Williams with lots of themes, brass and fanfares

Titanic? I'm so glad he didn't score that one.

 

You said it! Because you know how in the early parts of the film, were it scored by Williams, we would have gotten this:

...which would have been all wrong for Titanic.

 

And I don't want to hear anyone even mention Braveheart in regards to this thread!;)
