    Interesting review D, my only quibble with it is that it's a bit long winded and would benefit from a shorter more to the point review.

    I know my friend, but 1) it's a movie / score review and basically observes the function of the score within the movie. 2) it's analyzing the music on the cd, for anyone interested 3) i can't remember the last time i observe a composer doing SO MUCH with music in the film and i am sure it wouldn't come in the surface if i hadn't watched the movie first...it might appear simple but what he does in there is pretty multirateral and complex with each important character having his / her / its own theme which gets manipulated in many ways according to the on-screen happenings and visuals. For those who won't the resume alone, there's always the last paragraph wink thanks for the feedback!

  1. Guillermo del Toro (upcoming The Hobbit) is developing Pinocchio as a stop-motion feature with the Jim Henson Co. as a darker version of the original fairy tale.

    The project will be produced by JHC co-toppers Brian Henson and Lisa Henson along with senior VP Jason Lust. Del Toro will executive produce.

    Del Toro's working on the screenplay with Gris Grimley, who illustrated a 2002 version of "Pinocchio." Grimley and Adam Parrish King will co-direct the film.


    Stop motion? Jim Henson Company? This is Elfman territory, not Beltrami. One can only hope.

    Interview!

    In an exclusive interview for Stage and Screen Online, one of the world's most popular film composers, Danny Elfman talks to Tommy Pearson about his life and career so far. Danny was in London to record his score for the up-coming biopic, Notorious (about the rapper Notorious B.I.G); in the interview he talks about his work with Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Nightmare Before Christmas, PeeWee), writing music for remakes and superheroes, composing TV themes (The Simpsons, Desperate Housewives), dealing with obsessive fans, and gives his views on The Dark Knight and the Academy Awards, the Simpsons Movie, why everyone steals from his Edward Scissorhands score at Christmas, what he thought of having his head chopped off in Family Guy, and why he paid for a TV spot to warn Americans about Sarah Palin.

    A rare treat for all Danny Elfman fans.

    Wow, you've summed up my entire personal perspective on Elfman, in just those few words, right there... slant

    Something wonderful happened to me, today! You know how I've been rather unimpressed with the chaotic nature of Elfman's style of recent years, including the acclaimed Wanted. Well, I wound up just a few hours ago with Elfman's "Little Things" song in my head! It's always a good sign when you wind up yearning to listen to a bit of music. So I'll be playing it this evening and I think I'll be enjoying it much more.

    Oh, and in all the Elfman discussions we've been having, I can't believe that I've consistently forgot to mention the one score of the recent years that truly has my jaw dropping like the good old Batman days: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. FABULOUS score. This is almost Pee-Wee all over again.

  2. The MILK score is streaming at the Focus Features website, a website with a similar structure to the Vantage Guilds website that offers DEFIANCE and REVOLUTIONARY ROAD streaming. It's a nice score - not the most startling thing I've ever heard, but nice.

  4. Listening to that interview with Elfman at S&SO.


    He says he never liked being recognized or standing out. You know what's a good way to be recognized and stand out? Playing the Devil in a movie, and in the movie putting your hands on a nice pair of firm boobies.

    No, it's a scene from FORBIDDEN ZONE, the first film he scored and directed by his brother Richard back in 1979/1980. Elfman had a brief cameo as Satan.

    Didn't think it was that brief. He totally dominates one long scene! Much, much fun!

    Indeed. I guess he took with him some of that charisma on-stage whenever he performed with the Mystic Knights or later Oingo Boingo. You'll see some of those same devilish grins on the 1995 Boingo Farewell DVD.

    I'm probably in the minority but I didn't like Beltrami's score to the third very much. So I'm very eager to hear what Danny wrote for this one!

    I'm with you then. angelic

    Beltrami's score was sufficient, but it didn't do anything go to above and beyond that.

  7. Beltrami's score wasn't really good indeed, I'm with Anthony and Demonstar

    Fiedel's music for most perhaps lacked quality, but for me it offered effective music and a dynamite theme

    I hope Elfman's score is more that than Beltrami's (which was just a culmination of his sound)

    But nice cover indeed smile
