"Dave, Check out Mortons' Imdb page and keep scrolling down, all the way to 1935! http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0607925/ As you don't know much JG then listen to this, it is so seductive.... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xreXeugQjdw Had a…"

"I've never heard more swashbuckling than Debney's Cutthroat Island! JNH's Waterworld is similarly mad. I've tried listening through Hook but as I recall, though it obviously had that JW sparkle, it sounded to me like lots of…"

"Yeah, great. He is so versatile. You mentioned Pirates of the Caribbean, let us not forget JW's score to Hook, how swashbuckling do wanna get? I'm sure I read somewhere that JW was Mancinis' pianist in the 50's or 60's. I…"

"That's funny - I liked his new Trek theme from the start, but I have no real loyalty to the franchise so that might not be a surprise. One of my minor criticisms of his Rogue score is that it occasionally starts to sound like his Trek music,…"

"Not seen Rogue One yet, waiting for the DVD, but that link is very nice. Lovely key change at 2.51. It's funny you know, when I heard first heard Giacchinos' score to Star Trek notably the new theme, I was so disappointed in it, (I was…"

"I'd no idea Powell's wife died recently, that's tragic. I knew he'd had a couple of years out from scoring, maybe it was linked to an ongoing illness. Antz was Powell and Harry Gregson-Williams (another great) and yes, Elfman is…"

"Dave, I don't know where to start.....even Gladiator could de-throned if I think about it. Erm, the last cue in ET obviously. In recent years, a few cues in Prometheus, some cues in the Bourne series, the noir-ish theme in Nocturnal Animals…"

"Hmm. I'll give you three because it's tough. This is in terms more of listening in isolation rather than how they well they function as scores, which are often two different things. My favourite single cue might not come from these…"

"Williams has been influenced by a few of the greats, Prokofiev sure, but the score for ET in particular, was influenced by Howard Hansons Romantic Symphony, especially the last tremendous cue. I think Williams also called Herman the father of modern…"

"Awesome stuff. Not that it matters to the music, but I wouldn't call someone a film composer unless that was the majority of their work. I'd place him as a composer who among many other endeavours scored a handful of films - there'd…"

"As we've argued in the past, I don't consider JW great but only as a film composer, just great as a composer. But in any case I haven't chosen him as a mentor; there are many composers, film and otherwise, that inspire me. My…"

"Josh, don't be so fragile. An open discussion filled with diverse opinions can be very enlightening. I have yet to see 'composer types' agree on much of anything. I don't believe that money corrupts the idea of…"

"A few weeks ago I would have said it is great to choose a mentor, but why John Williams?  Certainly there are better composers.  But now I realize that if you are intending to write for film there is no better example of a…"
