    Very interesting, different premise for a change. Looks fantastic.

    What do you think?

    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    If his current favourite composer writes the music then it will be the most appropriate name for a score that there has ever been.

    I'm interested, but I don't expect much yet. Roland is in general great with big effects and action set pieces, and as expected he seems to have created a great Victorian England with his computer, but he's not the greatest teller of stories or actor-director. I applaud the fact that he tries something completely different for a change, his second attempt after The Patriot early on, and I'll wait for the film for my judgement. We'll see.

    That was probably one of the worst trailers I've seen in a long time.

    Hm...interesting. Care to elaborate what put you off so much? the premise, the plot? or something entirely else.

    I'm a big Emmerich fan, so looking forward to anything he comes up with.
    I am extremely serious.

    Me too. By the way, the Kloser/Wander bash is useless. Emmerich is not going to bring Arnold back. And I'll be honest, the theme for The Day After Tomorrow is one of the reasons why I've started to notice and like movie soundtracks.
  2. Oh, I forgot. This movie is the reason why Rhys Ifans is the villain of the Spiderman reboot.

    The first thing that put me off... A FILM BY ROLAND EMMERICH. suicide

    The second... the opening shot of New York. Good grief... someone needs to shoot some NEW New York broll because the helicopter shots are deathly boring.

    Next, the music. Absolutely the wrong choice of music. That modern day horse crap with images from a tale told in 1500's is wrong, wrong, wrong.

    The editing itself felt amateurish.

    And the story itself - while it's been a hotly debated topic as to whether or not Shakespeare did indeed write his plays, sonnets and poems that opening scene came off as if it was a new revelation. It came off unintentionally funny and pretentious.

    In any case, it's good to see Emmerich doing more of a straight forward drama than action blockbuster. I think his best looking film was The Patriot so hopefully a more serious drama will offer some gorgeous photography... minus the New York establishing shots.

    Quite possibly the biggest mistake the man ever made.

    Absolutely is, but I have to say my problem isn't that the music is not by David Arnold (there is a lot of wonderful film music and most of it is not by David Arnold, though some of it is), it's that it IS by Kloser/Wander, people who seem to have no aptitude whatsoever for film scoring, but particularly no aptitude for scoring the kind of film that Emmerich makes. The Day After Tomorrow was OK (the other two were terrible) but it was a film which could have had a score which was far, far more than OK.

    Yeah, after the day after tomorrow, it was all continuous downhill for Kloser. He should stop screen-writing and whatever else he ventures in, and focus on the music.

    No, the score will not be called Kloser.

    Why did Emmerich hire these two after having absolutely gobsmacking music for his first four feature films? By actual composers no less... That's something I'll never understand.
