    Across the Stars

    Bah, so much for big exclusive premiere featuring brand new footage, all they did was rehash all of the 3 trailers, paste them together and add the music. Nice piece by John Williams, too bad the video sucked big time.
    You just remember what old jack burton says at a time like this. Have you paid your dues? yes sir the check is in the mail.

    this is the first john williams song i don't really care for. i keep expecting to see clint eastwood ride a horse into the sun set or something.

    and there were way too many cuts of the "band" playing. who, except for their kids or mates, wants to see these people?

    I have to disagree with you there derek, I like the song ALOT. I think it is cool. It doesn't beat the Imperial March, and Han and Leia's love theme is better, but I still like it!

    Is the video to it really THAT bad??? How bad could it be? Is there any new footage on it?

    Well, take all 3 of the trailers(the ones that played in theaters), and play them almost in order with cuts of Williams conducting and the band playing in between the scenes, then add a new scene where Anakin looks to the side, and you have the whole video. It reeks of sucktitude and feels like it was taped and edited several months ago.

    The track is actually a mix of all of the tracks and from what I hear they didn't do a good job

    However, don't let it sour you on the score. It's definitely one of Williams' best in the last ten years (behind only A.I. Artificial Intelligence in my opinion, and directly above Saving Private Ryan and the Phantom Menace)

    I thought the video was a decent commercial for the film. No... it didn't hold all sorts of NEW footage. I think the thing that "messed it up" was that Lucas and Fox gave us SO many trailers this time around. We saw so much footage that there really wasn't a whole lot left without showing us the whole film. The music was bits and pieces of the score and wasn't sequenced all THAT badly. No... it wasn't the video for "Duel of the Fates", but I was happy to see it!

    The soundtrack IS good... I agree.

    We already have four trailers with three of them having almost completely exclusive footage from the film. I think if the video had shown anymore then what would be the point of going to the theatre?

    I really liked the Across the Stars theme, it has that sweeping dramatic feel that reminds me of movies like Lawrence of Arabia and The Ten Commandments.

    So is the AI soundtrack that good Mike? I might have to check it out then.

    BB--A.I. is fantastic Completely innovative, fresh, and melodically stunning. If you want to see whether you'll like it first, I'd recommend sampling the tracks "Search for the Blue Fairy", "Abandoned in the Woods" and "Where Dreams are Born".

    Derek--the "band" (actually the London Symphony Orchestra) has as much right to be there as anything from the movie, in my opinion. They worked hard and it showed. The music wouldn't have been nearly as brilliant without their input. Have some respect for the artists, please

    To the people that were disapointed. What were you all expecting? I am not getting ****y just wondering what your expectations for this music video were? I was not expecting much from this video at all. An ad for the movie was what I was expecting and got that.
    The only thing I can really complain about is that I do not like the deathsticks character. He sounded really lame. Apparently Kenobi and Anakin find themselves in Club Wuss.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Yeah he's annoying (though i guess that's his purpose in the film), I'm glad he ownly has a cameo.
