What is JW`s most 'beautiful' cue


Recommended Posts

You know,by `beautiful`cues i mean in the style of Princess Leia`s Theme,Yoda`s Theme,Fawkes...ect...,not pounding action cues like The Truck Chase of course

For me it`s Theme from Jurassic Park,i think that cue is the most beautiful over all.

Happy New Year to everybody!

Well, if I'd had to answer this thread tomorrow, I'd certainly think of any other cue (from Hook, Close Encounters or A.I.)...

But the ne I'm thinking of at the moment is "Watching the Eclipse" and "Finale" from "Angela's Ashes". Just because I think that this score is a bit underrated.

The best wishes to you too Stefan! :music:

Did you already see The Return Of The King?

I thought is was absolutely brilliant and amazing. One of my favorite films of all time. Actually the other two LOTR films are also among my all time favorites...

Did you enjoy the score? I'm sorry I havened found the time to read the "official" ROTK score thread (which is close to defeating my record holding "official" members thread!) so I'm not yet updated on your opinion or those of any other members here.

Personally; I think the score is amazing. I love some tracks to death; Minas Tirith, The White Tree, The Return Of The King, The Grey Havens,... etc.

Bye,

Roald

Yes...i agree, Lord Of The Rings has for me pushed the original Star Wars trilogy aside as best film trilogy ever.

I'm sure Neil will just frown and move these posts to that thread, that's what we pay him for, innit. 8O

Same here, i'be been playing only that CD for the last few weeks, it's an amazing work, like the other 2 scores.

Stefancos- who can't wait for Howard Shore's concert in Antwerpen.

I like "Visitors/'Goodbye'/Special Edition End Credits". To me, I can hear why John might consider that his favorite score. But maybe he just liked it because of the way Spielberg worked the music into the movie as the aliens' communication.

Ok, again a variation on a theme.

Just my top 5 this time:

1) Theme from The Color Purple (arr. Williams). If it doesn't count as a Williams: Flight to Neverland

2) Jim's New Life

3) Theme from Sabrina

4) Journey to the Island

5) Theme from Schindler's List

My List:

Scherzo for Motorcycle and Orchestra

Keeper of the Grail

Across the Stars

Harry's Wonderous World

Flight to Austria

Hedwig's Theme

Theme from Jurassic Park

Home Alone Main Title (Somewhere in My Memory)

Damn there's just so much, but this will have to do for now...

Its hard to narrow it down but the main theme to Far and Away, particularly as heard with the pan flute in the end credits, has to be at the top or near the top. Also, Born on the Fourth of July end credits about 1:50 into it has a culminating motif of the main theme that perfectly captures a kind of romantic, bittersweet idealism (or something like that) that resonates with me and is quite beautiful.

Scarybunny is having some issues with avatar's it seems. . . .LOL Sorry about all the confusion. You just happened to pick people's avatars that are well known on the board. We make our own (in one way or another) and upload them to the board. So you are actually browsing the defaults and members avatars. No worries. Making your own is simple. . . . you can also find something and go to www.gifworks.com if you don't have an editing program. Or one of us can fix it for you.

I like "For Gillian".

Neil

Yes Neil! Good choice. Don't really listen too much to The Fury but ForGillian is a gorgeous piece of music.

I'll add The Accidental Tourist, the pentultimate track from Stanley and Iris (can't remember the track title), Main Titles from Sabrina, and pretty much all of Angela's Ashes. I also agree that it's one of Williams' most underrated scores and one of my all time favorites.

Hi- In school one of my graphics instructors had originally studied music in Boston, I don't remember where, but he was going for film composing and got to take a class (or I think it was a workshop) with Mr. Williams. So you may get your chance.
