    Twilight Zone: The Movie (Jerry Goldsmith)

    I know the overture by heart and since seeing the movie again couple of months ago, I was interested to hear more of the score. What is interesting is every segment of the 4 has its own musical style, dissonant for the first, romantic for the second, mysterious for the third, and terror for the last. But it's most definitely the music I was already familiar with from the overture that I like most. Not sure about the extra tracks though. While it makes for a more complete CD, they could've been left out.

    And after this I just had to play something a bit more ballsy.

    Superman Returns (John Ottman)

    I know this haters on this board. I'm not one of them. It tries to recreate that symphonic epic feeling that exists in the John Williams scores, and to me it sounds like a succesful hommage, with carefully constructed melodies, variations on the classic themes and some awe-inspiring choral moments. Yes even the Brainstorm ripoff. I simply adore the new soft theme for Superman and Lois. And the action cues are powerful.

    I like it too. The Williams' themes adaptations could've been better but it's still a very enjoyable score IMO.

    Tries and fails with a few exceptions.

    Variation of Williams' love theme and choral music for Superman heroics = EPIC FAIL!

    The action cues are solid even though they are quite disjointed.

    Lutor motif is really addicive. This score has his moments for sure..

    NP:The fan (Zimmer)

    The first inetent to do : Hannibal, the ring and the Dark Knight

    I really like Zimmer distorsions here, and the "ingenuity" theme is really beautiful (if out of place)
  1. NP: Adoration (Mychael Danna)

    A searing main theme holds this score together. 'Scroll' is such a fine cue to end an album with.

    NP: Cain's Hundred - Jerry (Jerrald) Goldsmith

    Great stuff to be found here!
    Early television Goldsmith is leagues better than many other TV scores of the time.
    Nice surprise this release. Right out of left field! Never even heard of this series till now!

    NP : Dawn of the Dead (Zombi) - Goblin

    Love it or hate it , but I love it !
    At the time , 'Dawn ...' was the very first zombie movie I ever saw and I just loved it .
    I can't count how many times I've seen it - the European Cut , Director's Cut etc ...
    Stylistically , this OST covers a lot of ground going from heavy bass and drums , intricate percussion to propulsive electro-rock with plenty of guitar - to tribal drums and chanting - to soft piano music .
    On the whole , the album is imaginatively played and arranged .
    If you have this one in your collection together with all the library tracks you've got the ultimate 'Dawn' OST and it ROCKS !

    NP:Lost Season 1 (GIACCHINO)

    It remains my favourite album of the whole show.

    Ok, Season 3 is much more thematic and diverse, but season 1 has some mysthical sense. The synthetiser with ethnic instrumentation and Giacchino's trademark makes this score a real listening experience.

    But this saga gave us so many great themes: juliet's , the Island, Kate's, Oceanic six's, ben's, Demond & Penny.....

  3. I enjoy the Superman Returns score. But the movie had a few lows definitely - like casting Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane and the two of them having a love-child. But other than that. The special effects were awesome. And I thought John Ottman did the best job he could have - working with one of the most iconic themes ever created in film music.

    it seems i'm not passionate for Zimmer's scores in the last months.....But it's not true!!!

    I LOVE ZIMMER!

    I want to talk more with u! the SoniCinemad talk was when I talked to little english!

    NP: The Dark Knight (Zimmer)

    Batman begins was a big dissapointment, one of the biggest dissapointments in my life. The Dark Knight is epic, improved and touching.

    I simply love the 2 notes variation, more powerful and epic. "a Dark Knight" is my favourite adaggio from Zimmer (Including "journey to the line")

    NP: probably one of the most flat and uninspired versions of Jerry Goldsmith's theme from Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It comes from an album entitled Pops Out Of This World performed by the Boston Pops and conducted by John Williams. vomit

    I don´t know; McNeely had a chance to do his very own Williams style score (Shadows of the Empire), and blew it by overcomposing. At least Ottman had the decency not to try to outdo Williams. Yeah, the score is nothing special, but it served its purpose for the even less special movie.
