    New project for HGW:

    Harry Gregson-Williams to score ‘Cowboys & Aliens’


    Movie's premise nothing great, at all.....

    According to the film’s new trailer, Harry Gregson-Williams has been hired to score the upcoming sci-fi action movie Cowboys & Aliens. The Dreamworks movie is directed by Jon Favreau, who worked with composer John Debney on most of his movies including Elf, Zathura and Iron Man 2.

    I was hoping for John Debney instead. Hoping Harry does a more Prince of Persia move here too

    The official website for COWBOYS & ALIENS currently features a track from what probably is the original score from Harry Gregson-Williams. It's just a snippet from a build-up track (so it takes a while to get going, and it probably ends before it really reaches a climax), but he certainly is going West in a fresh way (at least more Prince of Persia then Wolverine in sound) and just before it fades, a horn solo starts. I've got good hopes for a fun score.

    I probably only care if the film is good.

    The original Total Recall was an okay film far overmatched by it's score.

    Does it matter, really, who scores the remake? They're not taking the original movie and tossing out the score. It's a new movie, a remake, yes, but it's a different movie, so shouldn't it require a different composer? Is it a childhood thing? Are they messing with your childhood? Raping it and such?

    Seriously, these remakes will never be the same as the originals, so as long as we still have those, and I LOVE TOTAL RECALL, they can remake anything they want.

    Sure they can... but at least put some effort into it! Historically speaking most remakes are utter trash!

    harry gregson-williams would be an interesting choice. i also think that the music style of a composer has to fit with the movie. like harry gregson-williams' scores for the tony scott movies. his scores are not groundbreaking compositions, but the style and the mood of the music fit perfect to the style and the mood of the scott movies. and if thats also the case with the new Total Recall then he could be the right guy for this job.

    They fit the mood that Tony Scott wants, but they make an already bad film even worse. Gregson-Williams has stated in various interviews that he would like to write something a little more album-friendly (to paraphrase), but Scott simply won't allow it. To film music fans, Tony Scott is the devil.

    Harry Gregson-Williams on the other is an okay composer, but he rarely produces anything particularly interesting. Some good themes here and there, but on the whole his scores are dull.

    the action material is most of the time not good, but i love the emotional parts. i find his simple piano/strings themes perfect for this "cold" look of the scott movies. he started with this style in Enemy Of The State. Brill's Theme is amazing and i think it fits perfect to the setting and the cinematography of this movie. and he continued with this style until this day, because scott shoots his movies in this way until this day. scott/gregson-williams is a perfect combo. maybe the scores are no highlight for filmscore fans but for the mood and the style of these movies they are perfect. i really love the atmosphere the music creates.

    Fair enough! I can't disagree that you like it. smile

    Personally I can't stand it. It's stock atmospheric scoring that makes no attempt to get under the character's skins or heighten the tension of the story a way a proper score would. Even the 'emotional parts' are devoid of much merit. They suddenly appear, and I'm like "Oh, this bit's meant to be emotional. Okay, I get it", rather than feeling it.

    I'm not against 'atmospheric' scoring, as it can be a very effective way of scoring a movie. Just look at David Julyan's scores to Christopher Nolan's films! They completely get under the skin of the story and the characters and work brilliantly. But Tony Scott is no Christopher Nolan, and his films call for something far more interesting than stock, a-melodic synth pulses. (Enemy of the State is admittedly an entertaining film, and I rather like its score. But Scott has since been moving towards less and less interesting scores.)

    Fuck Tony Scott.
    Fuck Michael Bay.
    Fuck George Lucas.
    Fuck Hollywood.

    you're right. i also have the feeling, that the music is not really for the characters, the story or the tension, but more for the "look" and the "setting" of the movie. it's simple atmospheric music without a specific meaning. like the movies the music is "style/look over content". i don't listen to the action music on cd very often, but the piano/strings parts have a special feeling for me and in the movie. but maybe that feeling is more a "taste of music".

    TOTAL RECALL is based on Philip K. Dick's I CAN REMEMBER IT FOR YOU WHOLESALE, I'm just wondering if anyone has read the book? I've heard it's quite different to the Arnie film.
