    No. I feel it's not a funny film then.

    Well, that's why i find the score "too much" for me. smile I listened to it twice from what i remember; i have faint memories of the 2nd time being forced, me strapped and stuff.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Funny.
    Funny.

    Hm.
    Not how I would put it.

    Odd, certainly.
    Strange, even.
    At times slightly unsettling.

    Funny? No. Not so much.

    I'm heading to the Toronto Symphony tonight for Pops at the Movies featuring conductor Erich Kunzel. So, all day today I've been spinning all my Kunzel albums on shuffle!

    Star Trek Michael Giacchino


    Oddly enough, I think the fact that it's a Star Trek score works both for and against it. Against it because Trek fans such as myself tend to have a very specific sound they like to hear in a Trek score (which this didn't achieve); for it because otherwise I might not have given it as much attention as I have, of which I'm glad I did.

    But I've had such an odd yet ultimately positive experience with this one. I was a little disappointed when I first heard it, the theme felt too weak, then I was even more disappointed when I heard it in the [highly overrated but enjoyable] movie. Yet I kept returning to it. And returning to it. And returning to it - and now it's probably my favourite score of 2009 thus far!? That damn theme/motif/notes-that-come-together-to-represent-something-somewhere-from-the-2009-re-envisioning-of-Star Trek is SO catchy!


    I tried to listening to it yesterday in the office when everyone was out, and I felt a great temptation two tracks after 'Enterprising Young Men' to skip forward to the end credits. I decided to tune into Parliamentary Question Time instead, which has been unusually interesting this week.

    I wouldn't say that. It felt like it had a bit of both - genuine chills and humour.

    NP: Wanted - Danny Elfman

    Really exciting, fast-paced action score with some quite powerful thematic material.

    Yup! I'm liking it a lot, much better than Beltrami's score to the third one! smile

    NP: The Ghost And The Darkness - Jerry Goldsmith

    "Almost" first listen (means I've already heard it several times at SST). Great main theme cool

    The Horse Whisperer - Thomas Newman

    Quite an eclectic album. Sweeping Americana, some country with loud fiddles, lush romantic cues, and strange meditative music can all be found on the CD. I just wish Mr. Newman quit making all those very short tracks - they really don't help in making his albums a good listening experience...

    Caprica - Bear McCreary

    Quite a different beast to his Battlestar scores.
    Sometimes I feel McCreary is channeling Goldsmith or Herrmann in places. No bad thing there!
    A very mature and effective score indeed! cool

    So much fuss over a ute?

    Aliens - James Horner

    Since I cut out a load of tracks from the deluxe edition, to turn it back into the original album, this has been an absolute revelation for me. What seemed like a terribly overrated, unfocused album now verges on masterpiece. (Though unusually derivative throughout, even by Horner standards.)

    NP: The Last Confederate - Atli Orvarsson

    First listen. A surprisingly good score! There are quite some electronics but most of it is orchestral, with some very good themes and action music. The woodwinds, high strings and solo trumpet are especially very nice.

    Haven't listened to them. But it sounds a little similar to Rabin's Great Raid in some places. Hints of Badelt's Rescue Dawn in a few places too. I like what I'm hearing a lot!

    Boooooooooooooooooooooooooo! IMHO, the deluxe edition was a vast improvement over the original release showcasing just how absolutely brilliant the Aliens score actually is. Are you telling me that you cut out the "Facehuggers" cue?!?!?!?

    Trinity And Beyond - William Stromberg

    Big, big, BIG orchestration! It's very clear Stromberg has earned his laurels in the world of his studies of the Golden Age of film music: this is a very old-fashioned approach to scoring (and I mean that in the best possible way), with a lot of classical aspects.
    Very powerful. A score that is in no way easily dismissable!
