    NP : DUNE - Toto



    Excellent score, easily the best of all the Dune scores.


    In fairness, it doesn't have much competition!

    NP : Resident Evil - Marilyn Manson

    You have to be in the mood for this one but I find it very athmospheric and it does the job perfectly in the movie ...


    Is this the "band soundtrack" + 4 score tracks by Marilyn Manson or is there a score soundtrack out there? If I remember correctly the score was a collaboration between Marilyn Manson and Marco Beltrami.

    Indeed! Tyler's score is so... :whispers: overrated!

    Have you ever heard LITTLE BUDDHA or THE SHELTERING SKY?


    Yes, but only some tracks on his compilation albums.
    I love his theme (song) for a movie called Poppoya (though he didn't score it). And Merry Christmas Mr.Lawrence is my favorite, which I've heard on the local radio several times, though at first didn't know it's a film score!

    Also I recently found myself liking his non-film music works. Some are a little too experimental, but I like the addictive Grasshoppers and a short piece called "The day a gorilla gives me a banana" biggrin

    Well, you have me intrigued and I'll have to listen to those non film works. beer

    As regards Little Buddha and Sheltering Sky I seriously recommend you seek them out, both are fantastic and varied scores, particularly Buddha.

    Yeap! Apart from one or two tracks that I really like it's very generic and uninteresting.

    Symphonic adventure score, thematic and highly enjoyable. Not very original but huge fun and great sound.

    It has a certain style that you really need to be in the mood for where you don't expect any musical action or surprises. Really for John Barry purists/completists more than anything.

    I think you mean 'stirring'. 'Heartwarming' is pretty much the domain of the 'pleasant, uplifting' sort of stuff. wink

    IT's got some very good action cues, fun. There's a lot of mickey mousing and forgettable generic stuff but which modern score that sound like that doesn't?

    As if a movie trying to use owls as the characters of a Lord of the Rings style fantasy epic wasn't already bound to be failish, there has to be mickey mousing in it?? shocked

    The symphonic kind of mickey mousing that tries to be amusing and Williams-esque / Goldsmith-ish at the same time; the worst kind for me wink But the opening cue and the action pieces are quite entertaining.
