    John Williams interview about The Rise of Skywalker. A gentleman as ever, very kind words for the trash that is these new Star Was films. What he sees in Daisy Ridley I will never understand.

  2. The spambot confused John Williams the composer with the renowned guitarist.

    Not a bad choice as favourite. It's not quite up there for me, but definitely in my top 10 Williamses.
    I am extremely serious.
  4. Thanks Thor. Yes, something about it is so perfect for me. Maybe it's the contrast of the cold, dark, loneliness of Hook's theme and Peter's feelings of being lost, then finding hope again - it's all in the music, and it just really moves me.
  5. Hook is great. My favorite is E.T., as presented on its original album. But Hook is top 10 for me as well.
  6. E.T. is absolutely incredible! And is a close second for me in my JW favorites. Excellent choice! smile
  7. I mean to ask you Christopher, what's your favorite track/moment on the original album? Mine is definitely the Chase section of Track 20 (Escape/Chase/Saying Goodbye) - the part in the film where they are riding their bikes over the gravel dunes...just THE BEST music ever in that scene! biggrin

    That track has been one of my favourites as well, but for personal and recent reasons, I will never ever get through the Goodbye scene score again without welling up, I'm afraid. Within that context, Super 8 will do the same to me. Giacchino really did well on that one.

    Man, it has been way too long since I came around! Sorry for my delayed response here. My favorite tracks on the original album (also found on tracks 1-8 on disc 2 of the 35th anniversary edition of the score) are "Flying," and "Over the Moon." Hearing the flying theme at the John Williams concert a few years ago was the absolute highlight of that concert for me. I absolutely adore it. I'm sure my favorite part is the same as yours. But a VERY close second favorite moment from ET for me is probably somewhat unique to me. I just love the opening of "Over the Moon" (which appears at the very beginning of the end credits track on the 20th anniversary edition of the score). That rolling piano is just awesome. I play the piano and so it's a very special instrument to me. Hearing that theme played so wonderfully on the piano - so elegant and classical-sounding - is just a massive highlight for me.

    To turn the tables on you, what is your favorite track/moment from Hook?
  9. I was a big Robin Williams fan in elementary school, so I watched Hook quite a bit then. But my favorite track/moment from Hook is "Remembering Childhood" when Peter Pan is struggling to find himself (and to fly) and accidentally falls into the underground cave he used to play in as a boy. Then he finds his old teddy bear and picks it up and starts thinking about his own childhood. There's sweetness and sadness, loss and loneliness in the music there, but then when he realizes why he left Neverland because he wanted to be a father (and he starts to float) the music shifts and there's renewal, hope and joy in it...I'm not a parent, but the emotional journey (through music) that he goes on in that scene - I can't help myself, it just brings me to tears every time.

    Good choice! My favourite track will always be "You are the Pan", which encapsulates everything I love about Williams, i.e. his pastoral, almost religious sound.
    I am extremely serious.
  10. Oh my gosh, yes! That is such a great musical scene too!

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing that!

    Like, Thor, "You Are the Pan" is my favorite piece from Hook.
