    Ah, now I can hear the Batman theme. I think it's more likely a coincidence than a direct rip, it's a pretty standard chord structure used a lot in film music to instill a feeling of awe and mystery (i.e. a 'sci-fi' kind of sound). Not original, but I still like it and I certainly don't find it distracting like Erik does.

    BRIAN TYLER - Dragonball: evolution

    I like it. Can't understand what people who DID like Brian Tyler anyway find wrong with this. It's a perfectly normal Brian Tyler score. And it's a good Brian Tyler score.


    Yeah. Not quite sure what Erik is talking about? I'll have to re-listen to it. Still, I enjoyed it. :shrug:


    I think what Erik was talking about is that the main theme is a pretty blatant reworking of Elfman's Batman theme. I quite like the Tyler album (but the score is completely ruined by the absurd length of the album), but that theme issue is very distracting while I listen to it.

    Btw, does anyone else think the choir is a not real? I haven't seen 'em anywhere in the recording sessions' video and i don't have the credits to verify but still, i think they're sampled.

    They could easily have been recorded after the orchestral sessions. And maybe those choral only sessions weren't filmed.

    NP:Star Trek First Contact (GOldsmith)

    The First Contact theme is gorgeous, but there is not enough action and too much track from Joel Goldsmith.


    Actually, the real mystery is to try and figure out some of the nonsense you litter this board with.

    -Erik-


    Why you are so cruel with me? sad


    You called me out so I did the same with you.

    -Erik-


    First Contact Could have been one of the best Star Trek scores, if Joel Goldsmith was not composed more than the half of this score.

    I mean, Goldsmith action tracks using Kingon's theme, enterprise theme, Borg's theme are fuc_ing great! the borg's music is very reminiscent to Vejeaur sound and First Contact theme is gorgeous.

    Sadly, 32 minuts from Goldsmith makes the score a little bit incomplete sad

    But "Temporal wave" or "Red Alert" beer beer

    Disagree completely my friend! Joel contributions were spot on and blended perfectly with his father's sound. Unless it was pointed out to you, you would have never been able to figure who composed what. And for your information, one of the best cues from the score, "The Flight of the Phoenix" was composed by Joel Goldsmith.

    First Contact is a fantastic score and wonderful collaboration between father and son! IMHO, it's the best Next Generation film score.

    Yeah. Not quite sure what Erik is talking about? I'll have to re-listen to it. Still, I enjoyed it. :shrug:

    I´ve enjoyed it too (except the horrendous "Chasing Dragonballs" track). Tyler´s personal style into a more melodic and thematic score, not so over the top as his scores for the likes of Eagle Eye or AVP:R. I´m becoming such a die hard fan of Brian Tyler. Oh, and for once Varese´s description is totally right ("an epic fantasy score by composer Brian Tyler").
    Anything with an orchestra or with a choir....at some point will reach you
  1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Harry Gregson-Williams & others) (custom soundtrack)

    I like this... Why? Why because it's not another senseless droning crapfest he usually writes for action films, this actually has some good action and some very gentle underscoring. I like some of the other Japanese composers' work here too. They blend in very well with Harry's style. During the more intimate moments of the game, the score gets to shine the most. And the song 'Here's to You' from Morricone's 'Sacco e Vanzetti' is the perfect ending track.

    Epics must be getting smaller! To me, Lawrence of Arabia is epic; perhaps more recently Lord of the Rings would fit the bill. Dragonball Evolution aims small and hits the mark, but since it's essentially Tyler composing well within his usual parameters, "epic" seems a rather ambitious description.

    Erik, there's 2 strong themes in Dragonball, at least. Give it another spin and maybe you'll see why i disagree with the notion that there's nothing memorable in it smile

    As for the varese description, no matter how i like the score, i wholly agree with Southall.

    Themes? You found 2 strong themes?! lol Maybe motifs. It doesn't matter if he wrote 15 themes or motifs none of them are memorable! There's no imagination or creativity whatsoever. It's Wall o' noise my friend and these sort of scores are just a waste of time.

  2. Back to the Future Part III (Alan Silvestri)

    I love it when Silvestri does westerns... his energy in the action cues and passion for theme development makes this score a worthy entry and improves on the average score for the 2nd film. This must be one of the very first soundtrack albums me and my brother ever got, so it holds a special place in my heart. It's also one of the most beloved film trilogies from my youth, Silvestri captured the magic and fun of the story and characters so well.

    NP:Dragon Ball Evolution ( Brian Tyler)

    The same I said about almost every other tyler score.

    A generic main theme (but not so generic as the eagle eye one) and all the secondary motifs and orchestration tricks he used in every single score since Darkness falls (his masterpiece)

    Tyler seems to use the same textures and mood for a terror tale, a racer movie or for aliens and predators....and I'm tired of it.

    Am i enjoying it? Im sure I will enjoy it when I need something loud, but then I'm not so sure if I will take Alien VS Predator Requiem instead.
