Welcome, Kyle, glad to have you! Stick around, explore the threads, contribute your thoughts! apple01

(Another SW fan here, although it's primarily the 1977 original film that I obsess over, more than any other product of the franchise; I'm old enough to have seen it upon release, age 10.) 

  

Thank you! Already love the Forum. So many great People! I cant imagine how it must have been watching that movie on the big Screen back in 1977. Magic happening

Big star wars fan here. Big Batman guy as well. I’m really looking forward to the new Clone Wars spinoff that was recently announced, The Bad Batch

  

Yeah. I loved them in the last TCW Season. Still hoping for a Bluray Release here...

Batman is great too. Played the Arkham Series lots of times and love all the lore and Detail there.

Beside that I love STAR WARS, Harry Potter and movies in General. Iam a huge Soundtrack buff and work out alot. I use the time at the gym to check out new Music and audiobooks and relax from work.

Big movie fan as well, I'm on the Harry Potter end of things for that matter, but have seen the Star Wars films and own the original trilogy and the prequels. I love soundtracks as well, and I assume you heard of Morricone's passing recently, to whom I dedicated a long-ass speech on here. We've got stuff in common, I usually work out to albums I haven't heard before, shooting two birds in one shot. Welcome to the forum @KyleKartan.

  

I've come late to the Party of Harry Potter, in my early Twenties when Deathy Hollows 1 was released in Cinema. But my Passion for the Franchise has grown ever since.

Yeah I was sad about Morricones passing. He's not my favorite considering scores, the top spot will always be reserved for the Maestro John Williams. But Morricone is a legend of his own and he as a great legeacy movie composeres have to live up to.

I've been a Star Wars fan since the very beginning too. I wish I could have been there for the beginning of the Beatles...for Beatlemania beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Lots of Star Wars fans on here, @Joe

@KyleKartan, have you seen this video before?

https://youtu.be/hVrIyEu6h_E

  

Haha THX for the vid! Great stuff. I've joined SW when I was 10 back in 1997. The Special Editions were released and the Trailer looked very interesting. My parents had never seen SW due to them growing up in the east part of Germany (the socialist one) where western stuff wasnt released until much much later. So they never had any Connection to stuff like that and I had to discover that myself.

Can you imagine beeing around for Beatlemania and exploring the Beatles Musical Evolution as it actually happened. Must have been amazing. Must have feltr great to experience that Beatlemania for yourself. beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Luckily I grew through the whole thing, when I was born, the first film had already came out and it had been a big hit. My older brother loved them films so I was naturally interested. The first HP film I saw in theaters was Order of the Phoenix when I was 5 (yeah). The last film came out when I was 9, and by then I had already seen the rest on VHS. Anyway, what I'm saying is, as a toddler I loved the action, and as a teenager when I got into the books during high school I really started appreciating the story arcs and the evolution of the story and I've always defended the saga even if it was for nostalgia reasons as much as I still believe it's some of the finest fantasy films there are (+ the whole watching the actors growing up/Boyhood side of the films which I think is unprecedented) so I've always standed by the saga, having so many criticisms made mostly by LotR fans that feel threatened (Lord of the Rings is genius tho, just the fans are a little over their heads is what I'm saying).

Yeah I was sad about Morricones passing. He's not my favorite considering scores, the top spot will always be reserved for the Maestro John Williams. But Morricone is a legend of his own and he as a great legeacy movie composeres have to live up to.

I have it reversed, but it is completely a sentimental reason. Morricone will always be first for me, even if technically Williams has made more and more iconic music across the board (almost every iconic soundtrack ever was made by him). I have Williams in a second realm, fighting next to Bernard Hermann and Alan Silvestri (I mean Back to the Future is enough for a top spot). But again, my placing of Morricone has to do with how much I connect to his European style of sentimentality and I know I'm completely biased by my love for westerns, plus the man just died, but I really do love him that much.

Anyway I can't wait for you to get into the forum, cheers.

Yes it was...In NO way was I (or anyone else in 1977) prepared for that huge Star Destroyer passing overhead. OMG IT'S GONNA CRUSH US ALL!! blue-meaniebeatlemaniacs_02_gifpaul-mccartney

I've mentioned here before how much I love the parallels between the opening shots of SW and AHDN - and the two films shared the same cinematographer, of course.

I remember watching Episode IV for the first time in 1997 with my grandpa with whom I went into movies regulary at the time. I was MIND BLOWN when the SD went over my head.

 

I didnt know they shared the same cinematographer. I wonder if Mark Hamill asked him about the Shooting of AHDN ...as MH is a HUGE Beatles Fan.

I became curious about HP when I saw the tariler of Half Blood Prince. The movie looked very very interesting. Beside that I very good pal of mine which I knew for some months was a huge HP fan and that too got me curious. Before that I've heard about it but never really cared for it. Another Point was probably that I was opening up to other stuff when I was almost "ONLY STAR WARS/LUCAS" back in my Teens and by the time Halblood Prince was released I was more open to other Things.

 

Concerning Morricone: I totally understand, for me its the same with Williams for similar reasons. So many of the movies I watched as kid and teen have his movies: STAR WARS, Indy, Hook, Jurassic Park, Superman, Schindlers List, Home Alone. The first live footage film I remember watching was Hook and the movie there was magical for me. Williams has been with me from a very very early age on until now so my affection for him is very deep and I've loved him unknowingly even when I didnt even knew his Name. His legacy for me personally is gigantic.

 

@QuarryMan thank you 🙂
