Composer Face-Off: John Williams vs. Ramin Djawadi

Music is perhaps just as important in a movie or series as story and acting. Which of the soundtrack from these talented, well known composers do you like best?

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls046999176/

Wow, this is the first time I've seen the name Ramin Djawadi and he's practically from my neighborhood. The music he scored for the movies I saw didn't leave any impression so I'll go with John Williams.

John who?

Lol seriously, no offense to the other composer (certainly a talented guy who's making more money in a month that I'll ever make in 100 years) but I've never heard about him so the title made me smile, I mean you might as well ask me who's my favorite actor Al Pacino or Armin Tamzarione

I heard that he is planning on retiring since Rise of Skywalker is done.  Kind of a shame; I think he could still bring some great themes.

Since Disney bought Star Wars, I knew it was fu*ked. John Williams is one of those persons trying to keep the saga alive. If he departs, then RIP Star Wars. I miss George Lucas.

I gave up on Star Wars with the prequels.  :(  I wasn't a big SW fan to start with, but I will admit the originals were pretty good entertainment, especially for the 70's/80's (aka before we came to expect state-of-the-art CGI from every single movie!!!!!!!!!).  But now it's become purely a moneymaking creation, even more so than it was at the time of the prequels.  Not that they can't make a profit off it, because they have jobs too, lol, but the focus on quality has been completely forgotten and it's all just "what character can we market this time?"

There's a movie I absolutely love called I Am Dragon, it's Russian, and a work of art, putting modern-American/Disney fantasy/romance films to shame (forgive my harshness, but I am passionate about this, lol). I was shocked and saddened to find out that it flopped bigtime, not nearly making back its budget.  The film has a beautiful story with wonderful characters, but it's not a slog.  It has excitement, great special effects, and breathtaking imagery.  So it's a sad reminder of how people must view movies now; giving their cash to the newest Robert Downey Jr. project (no offense to him, of course), and brushing off something that is a true work of art.

Sorry, I just had to rant.  :)  Thanks.

Sometimes really great movies do not fare well at the box office.

Quest for Fire is a fine example. My first thought, however, is usually Blade Runner and its sequel; despite the latter not necessarily being what would be considered a "flop". Looks as though the original Blade Runner fell short of breaking even (a profit margin of less than zero) in the three-month span of its initial release. According to available data, Quest for Fire fell short of a 50% profit margin, likewise with Blade Runner 2049; a sign of better performance but not exactly "fairing well". I'm having trouble determining the profit margin of Он - дракон, due to the lack of data and the fast-changing exchange rate of Russian currency with United States currency, during the period of time in which the movie was made and released; but it seems like it may have experienced a profit margin higher than 50%. That all being stated, profit margins in excess of, say, 67% are only really important in regards to "body of work" building, retirements preparations or the donating of proceeds toward an established mission.
