  • I can't decide if March of the Resistance or Rey's Theme was my 2nd best cue of 2015 (nothing beats Patrick Doyle's Pumpkin Pursuit from Cinderella). I think Rey's Theme is one of those romantic motifs that wouldn't go out of place from the Golden Age of Cinema.
  • So of course I downloaded the entire back catalog of "Star Wars Oxygen: The Music of John Williams" podcasts, and it is awesome. The breakdown of even the most minor themes, their varied uses, inspirations, intentions, this is helping me develop the better appreciation of these scores that I always felt I should have. And I say that as one whose first CD as a child was a collection of John Williams' music from Star Wars and Close Encounters, which I listened to endlessly.
  • @Societysbad1 That was fantastic! Amazing breakdown of Rey's Theme. "JJ let John Williams do his thing. [There was no] producer pressure to 'crank out the hits, man!' We got John Williams giving a thoughtful take on a very powerful story." I like how David calls the credits suite "dense." Indeed, there is... so much going on. ;) He says that "the music is in absolute lock-step with this story" more than any film since TPM "or arguably" ROTJ, which is my feeling as well - and I think that contributed to why I wasn't consciously thinking about the score while watching the film as much as with the prequels, because it matches so well that it blends in more than it stands out. Then they draw the contrast that whereas the prequels each had a "hit single" that the film was promoted with (they don't name the tracks, but I assume they mean Duel of the Fates, Across the Stars, Battle of the Heroes), that isn't how movies are promoted anymore,
  • and "the difference is that we haven't been listening to [Rey's Theme] on MTV for solid a month before we walk into the theater." Well, apparently The Jedi Steps was used in a trailer - can someone link to that for me? And because of that, some fans say they still think of it as TFA's theme, whereas if anything it should be the next film's main theme. But yes, there certainly wasn't Rey's Theme all over promotional stuff like I remember Across the Stars being. (I didn't see anything leading up to TPM, and for RotS I avoided everything as much as I could.) And they point out that Rey's Theme is everywhere in the film - yes, but on my two viewings so far, the only part in which I took great notice, the only music showcase, was when she rides off toward the horizon to it (The Scavenger). Whereas the other three "singles" had full and prominent "music videos" within the films themselves.
  • Indeed :) This year we'll get the first theatrical live-action Star Wars film without a John Williams score; Rogue One will be scored by Alexandre Desplat. While obviously due to his association with director Gareth Edwards, this is an excellent choice; Desplat's work has been consistently well received by audiences and critics, and he's extremely adaptable. This won't be the first time he's taken over from John Williams, either, as Williams began the Harry Potter series and Desplat did a great job ending it. He'll certainly work classic Star Wars motifs in when appropriate. Of course the film will be military-focused and presumably will not include any Force users other than Vader, and that might call for a more rough, percussive score. Or perhaps not - doing the obvious isn't always the right choice.
  • May the force be with you in 2016! Happy new year!!!!
