    NP: Starter For 10 - Blake Neely

    From his website. I watched the film tonight on TV and quite liked the music. There's only 20 minutes or so available but it's a rather nice little non-orchestral score.

  1. NP: Quest For Fire - Philippe Sarde

    I'm surprised how quickly this arrived via Amazon.fr!

    First off, Tim and Erik can relax - I'm not going to come a'lookin' for you both.

    But I'm finding it nowhere near the level of something like One Million Years BC.

    I find Amazon.fr to be very good service.

    As for One Million Years B.C., let's be honest, can you think of a more primal score? As I said elsewhere though, 'Quest' belongs in that catagory of scores ( also including Bartlett's Walking With Dinos/Beasts ) that have an "authentic" feel of pre-history.

    I remembered that you had mentioned something about Quest For Fire - but none of the specifics.

    Listening to it now I can't say that it's the most enjoyable listen I've had but I can see how it fits the movie (from the movie photos anyway - I've not seen the movie). With this first listen I'm particularly drawn to the love theme rather than the others.

    Yes at least National Treasure 1 and 2 had a theme or two. The three are forgettable and mediocre though.
    I expected something closer to Flyboys, which I think is among Rabin´s best, and an underrated score.

    The film is very good. Light years beyond similar efforts. The Clan of The Cave Bear was released a few years later and it's awful, it also contains Alan Silvestri's insipid synth score....a mis-fire all round.

  5. John Williams Conducts Music from the Star Wars Trilogy (John Williams & Boston Pops)

    This is one of my most cherished compilations (released in 1997) featuring all the brilliant themes from Star Wars trilogy (the old one of course) but also Superman, E.T. and Close Encounters. Performances are ultra-crisp and exciting, not a whole lot different from the original recordings, but with subtle changes. Absolute highlights are 'The Asteroid Field', 'Yoda's Theme', 'Luke and Leia', 'The Forest Battle', 'Superman March', 'Superman Love Theme', 'E.T. Adventures on Earth' and a specially recorded suite from 'CE3K'. All of these sound top notch. The absolute best of the best from John Williams glory years.

    Blame Bruckheimer for his fear of woodwinds. It's his fault for thinking that woodwinds demasculates a film score.

    I'm surprised Rabin was brought on Race to Witch Mountain, since Bruckheimer is nowhere to be found in the producing credits. (Which makes it even more peculiar since Bruckheimer produced Confessions of a Shopaholic and JNH scored that.)

    It seems to be a rarely mentioned romantic score of Barry's, maybe even underrated with most people always citing Somewhere In Time which is a lovely score but lacking the diversity of Until September, the track One More Time is one of the most dreamily erotic cues I've ever heard in a film score.

    p.s. there's also great use of electric and accoustic guitar in the score too.

    But PJ Hogan directed it and he has a long working relationship with JNH, who's very much an in demand composer with lots of experience working in the romantic comedy genre. Win-Win for Jerry.

    Lovely score but too short. This score could really do with an expanded treatment, many good cues left out from the film.

    NP: Dragonball blah blah - Brian Tyler.

    I can hear some Batman-ish rising string melody thing. Not a big deal really, since at least that's all he's ripping off from Danny Elfman. (Thank goodness too cause goddammit if I had to listen to another variation on Elfman's Spidey music...)

    But what's so striking about this score is how bored I am listening to it. There aren't any outstanding cue that would win you over or anything new that would give you hope about liking the score more. Sure, there are some thundering percussion/racing strings/brass work and middling ethnicity typical of previous Brian Tyler efforts, but it's soo warmed over and stale now to the point of being a generic score that i would expect John Debney to really excel at. Look at the track "Vengeance". The name suggests so much possibilities... and yet there's less than 2 minutes of anything that would excite the emotions. I really want to like this score, but it's not doing it for me. A banal, unexciting, journeyman work.

    I really hope that his score for Fast & Furious won't be this boring.
