    Alan's Patrick Doyle recommendation worked out well for me. This one did not. Horrendous.


    Is it generic wallpaper...or worse??


    Sub-Gladiator/King Arthur rubbish.

    1492 - Vangelis

    I haven't listened to this since 199-something. Haven't watched the film for even longer. That's important, because a long enough period has now passed since watching the film that listening to the music doesn't send me into fits of giggles at how silly it is in the film. I can now just enjoy it for what it is, a clever and imaginative instrumental album that has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the film, which Vangelis presumably can never have even seen nor known anything about.

    I seem to remember that John Barry was seriously considered for scoring duties at one point?

    I remember hearing that too. Though maybe it was the other Columbus movie (which would make sense, since it was directed by John Glen, wasn't it?)

    No, it was definitely the Ridley Scott one. Barry does have a couple of connections with Scott, his early short film Boy On A Bicycle and the early 90's Kodak commercial.

    King Arthur OK, it's nothing special, but Gladiator certainly is a worthy score? One of my Zimmer favourites for sure.

    NP : 'BOOM!' - John Barry



    a real curio, kind of psychedelic soundscapes with a Barry touch, it's incredibly dark at times and I truly love this score, it's less than 30 minute running time never outstays it's welcome but be warned, anyone expecting any Dances With Wolves/Out of Africa style lushness will be sorely disappointed.

    Well, he said "sub-" smile

    I absolutely love both King Arthur and Gladiator although the latter is indeed a highly superior score.

    Hmm not a huge fan of Braveheart, just portions of it. But it's a good score overall, can't say the contrary. It's just that i am personally not so crazy about it. But i'd disagree if we were talking Titanic wink

    Too darn short, I feel like playing this one again but I'll give it a gap first and go for...

    NP : THE KNACK ( AND HOW TO GET IT ) - John Barry



    Quirky, snazzy score with a fabulous and very hip 1960's main theme complete with Hammond organ, love it!

    Classic score (with lots of crossover appeal!) for an underrated film.

    It has it's faults but it's far better than the other, Cliff Eidelman scored film which came out almost simutaneously.

    If I were to equate the two films to piles of steaming turds, then I'd put 1492 as maybe the size that a medium-sized dog might deposit but Columbus: The Discovery as one almost as high as the Burj Tower.

    It does have some good moments and I particularly enjoy the opening titles but I find the album a laborious chore to sit all the way through.

    INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE - ELLIOT GOLDENTHAL

    A much tougher listen than 'Michael Collins', and I would even dare say I prefer the twisted yet memorable 'In Dreams' over this. In the end I can't keep a single track in my memory, and I'd love to because this is Dark Knight Elliot doing his stuff, yet it seems so inaccessible to my ears.

    And that GNR song is so inappropriate... angry


    It fits in the film though I prefer the original Rolling Stones version.

    I think it's one of his best in the last 10 years, and while I don't particularly like his bombastic/dense soundscapes post-MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE in general, there's something about this that attracts me. I think it's the grooves and the overall album presentation that do it. Even the Oakenfold remix is cool!

    Haven't seen the film, but on album it's a little bit weird they put a rock song at the end. Maybe better had they put it at the start.

    And I do love GNR, the 80s and 90s GNR that is. punk

  4. SUPERMAN II - KEN THORNE & JOHN WILLIAMS

    I keep returning to this often. I think it's just as great Williams masterpiece. For starters, it's a 100 % thematic non-stop rousing score, that utilizes past themes to great rearranged effect. Thorne did a good job on this. I don't mind the decreased orchestra size, the original music already sounds sufficiently big and epic!

    Well, the song was featured at the end of the film and into the end credits.
