I'm guessing a resurrected Mozart for scoring would not help this movie....

Good to hear.  His work on episodes 1-3 was phenomenal and went to waste on that garbage, hopefully he'll have a better movie to work with this time.

This is great news. His score was the best thing about the prequels. And quite frankly, the original score for Star Wars had A LOT to do with the success of the movie. The imperial march in Empire was brilliant, but from beginning to end, the score for Star Wars was flawless.

You did it right... if you had actually tried to make a case for why the prequels were decent, it would have sounded too trollish to be believed...

The music was far better than the writing, to be sure. The score added a lot more flavor and drama to most of the scenes than the actors themselves (particularly in Episode 2).

Without JW's magical score, E.T. would be an Afterschool Special.

The imperial march is pretty much directly lifted from Holst's Mars, The Bringer of War. Don't give him much credit for that other than picking it out and adjusting it to fit the scenes.

So much of his work is just repetitive these days

Case in point....the "quidditch" (sp?) scene in of the Harry Potters is almost IDENTICAL to the music from when Obi Wan and Annakin are pursuing the bounty hunter on Coruscant in Episode 2.  If I closed my eyes, I could hardly tell which movie I was watching.  John Williams is an obvious genius, but I think he's been mailing it in for quite some time.  Hopefully, he brings his A game for EP VII

Seriously, who else could it possibly be? When you think of Star Wars, you think of John Williams' iconic scores. If he'll do it, you lock him up for it.

/Wish Man of Steel had done the same. That moment in the third trailer where Superman makes a fist pushes it against the ground and takes off was BEGGING for the John Williams Superman fanfare.

To me it was Phantom Menace. Seeing the whole saga set up and how the characters and story were built, well, I was blown away. I would even go to say that PM was better the ESB story wise. PM characters were more robust than the cookie-cutter characters of ESB.

you haven't been paying attention much to John Williams if you think his recent stuff is repetitive.  All of it is!  Indy, Jaws, Superman, SW.  He uses the same notes but changes phrases every so often.  It's not difficult to hum a few bars from the Indiana Jones main theme and roll it into the Attack of the Death Star motif from ANH.

But that still doesn't take away from his footprint he's left on the film industry.

Just because you don't have good taste in movies does not give you the right to call people trolls when discussing good movies.

You aint' kidding.  If you go back and listen to the score for any of the prequels all in one sitting, and in the order that each track appeared in the film, you'll notice that Williams managed to tell a better story than Lucas, and he didn't have to use one word of awkward, braindead exposition to do it.

People like to shiat on Superman Returns, but that was part of what made that film really enjoyable for me.  It wasn't scored by Williams, but they used his main theme.

Also, Kevin Spacey was born to play Lex Luthor.

Listen to Zimmer's Gladiator Soundtrack and then Pirates of the Carribean. Phrasing is very similar.

Howard Shore does much the same.

Everyone does it because it works.

Add to that - Danny Elfman in just about anything he's scored for Tim Burton. I'm not dissing it, in fact I rather enjoy it.  It's pleasant to know that a music writer's works will generally always sound similar to anything they do.

I saw Jurassic Park when it was re-released about a month ago, and one of the best parts of watching it in the theater is being immersed in John Williams' score as the helicopter first flies over the island. Gave me chills.

I mean, you got Jaws, Close Encounters, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Superman, Olympic Fanfare, NBC Nightly News, etc. The man is awesome.
