1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    NOTE : Movie scores! Not Forrest Gump because there are songs by The Doors or Hendrix. Movie scores, gentlemen. In the aforementioned example, Alan Silvestri would be the composer of the score featuring the Feather Theme most people are familiar with.

    My very favorites are ;

    Thomas Newman - Shawshank Redemption



    Dave Grusin - The Firm



    Hans Zimmer - Crimson Tide



    Thomas Newman - Erin Brokovich



    James Newton Howard - Sixth Sense

    John Williams -- The Empire Strikes Back.

    While the Imperial March is the instant classic of this score, I think this is my favorite piece from it:



    What I love about Williams' scores, especially this one, is that he tells the story with music.

    I spent a good deal of time with that film last year while working on a paper about it. It really is a great score.

    Haven't heard it in forever and maybe I wouldn't even like it now, but I really liked the score to Rumblefish. It was done by Stewart Copeland.

    I thought Interstellar's soundtrack was pretty great.

    Morricone is awesome. Once Upon a time in the West already mentioned in this thread. Thought I'd add this one.

    @A-Bone Got School? I am impressed, but not surprised. Cheers!

    My distant kin, Nino Rota did some nice work on Godfather. Al Viola's mandolin work highlights everyone's memory of this score hence the depth is frequently overlooked.
