    Good observation, Matt.
    I completely agree.

    In Revenge Of The Sith and (although to a lesser extent) in Attack Of The Clones, there are scenes that (on me) have a strong emotional impact.

    The Phantom Menace has no such scene whatsoever. Any emotion is indeed imbued by the music rather than the writing, the acting or the visuals.

    I would hope they set the bar a little higher than that. wink

    A related question.

    I saw a clip of the film recently and heard a piece that I've always liked, it's not by Korzeniowski and my question is, does anyone know of any site that lists music used in films?

    It may be a case of having to wait for the information to go up? I have no desire to see the film.

    I managed to get through my second and final listen of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island by Andrew Lockington. Big, bold, adventurous, action packed... BUT... not much substance. But, this is probably a personal issue because I loathe the original Journey theme so much that each time it's featured in this new score it feels like finger nails on a chalkboard. I know there is a good score in there but the main theme irritates me to no end that I have zero interest in return to it! It's too bad really because there is a lot to enjoy but I can't for the life of me ever see myself returning to this score! Shame!

    Moving onto Black Gold by James Horner. I wanted to give this another spin. I wasn't overly impressed by it even though there are a few solid stand out moments. I do really enjoy "The Wonders Of Wealth" which is a playful side of Horner we haven't heard for a while. Same goes for "Fresh Water." And of course the epic action cue "Battle In The Oil Fields." But again, it's the thematic material that ruins it for me. The reuse of Balto's "Heritage of the Wolf" which became the main theme from "Enemy at the Gates" is bloody annoying. It's this sort of stuff that instantly takes me out of most James Horner scores. And a good chunk of this album meanders aimlessly about not really knowing where to go or what to do.

    Up next will be Robert Folk's dynamite score to There Be Dragons. And then I have to start preparing my John Williams, John Barry and re-recordings shows.

    Lots to do!

    A John Barry show? I hope you'll be including obscurities rather than Out of Africa, Dances With Wolves etc for the zillioneth* time.

    *every show I've ever heard featuring Barry's music whether on Radio or TV always play these.

    I've been listening to Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and Firebird Suite on a continuous loop all day! I know this should go in the Non-Film Music thread but screw that... everyone (film music fans, too) need to... scratch that... should be required to have these two remarkable, ground breaking, revolutionary classical pieces in their collection.

    Now that I'm done my 5th lap with these two... how can I go back to listening to film music? There really isn't anything better, is there?

    -Erik-


    Yes there IS....loads and loads and loads cool ( well, maybe not better but equal to )

    But yeah, those two works are truly deserving of the word MASTERPIECE.

    Have you ever listened to Shostakovitch 7th symphony? ( bugger doing everything in order wink ) It's seriously awesome and deserving of your attention, yet another one of those works where after listening to it I find film music a bit "un-filling" in comparison.

    p.s. I almost missed this post of yours Erik, I wouldn't have missed it at the Off Topic thread, nothing wrong with posting it here but why not paste it in the other thread too.


    ...and just in case you missed my reply.

    Sorry Timmer. I didn't ignore you. I did see your reply and I apologize for not replying in return. Thanks for the heads up on the 7th Symphony.

    As for Barry.... well, I haven't done a Barry show in years and I need to cater to both the die hard fans and the newbs!

    Most of the script was written by Dave Norris (a die hard Barry fan and Projection Manager at the Empire Cinema in London) the rest I will fill in myself. I picked the playlist. It will look something like this


    HOUR 1
    From Russia With Love Suite
    - One track from Born Free
    OHMSS Suite
    - One track from The Girl With The Sun In Her Hair
    The Lion in Winter Suite
    - One track from Midnight Cowboy
    The Last Valley Suite

    HOUR 2
    - One track from King Kong
    Black Hole Suite
    - One track from Moonraker
    Body Heat
    - One track from Frances
    Out of Africa Suite

    HOUR 3
    Dances With Wolves Suite
    - Moviola
    Chaplin Suite
    - One track The Specialist
    The Scarlett Letter
    - One track from Cry The Beloved Country
    Enigma

    Now, there is room for improvement in the "one track" selections. As for the suites I can't for the life of me NOT play his Academy Award winning scores or his Bond scores. Anything you can suggestion will be considered. BTW, the show will be presented in chronological order and I will be looking for alternate recordings to feature on the program - for instance the 20 minute Dances With Wolves suite on Moviola II: Action and Adventure will be featured instead of the original soundtrack recording.

    As of the absence of non-film Barry work... I will be presenting some of those on my Film Composers in the Concert Hall show which will be coming up in a few months.

    Please forgive me.

    Given the film involved, there's a good chance it is part of the score, and the fact that it sounds exactly like something written for another film should not throw you off. wink

  4. Thor, hunt around with an internet search, by the way, you can come up with two or three GSA e-mails. Usually found on websites of composers they represent.

    I think that's just demonising an invisible opposition. Some of what you don't like has been driven by trends in popular music; some of it by successful films whose music has been imitated; some of it by technological change in filmmaking (heavier effects work and moves back in editing deadlines mean composers don't score final cuts, and temp tracks get a deeper foothold). Only very rarely are the sort of film scores people would like around here falling victim to that thing that happens to iconic directors (bergman, kubrick, malick, mann) where they end up favouring their own music selections, or in clint eastwood's case, their own scoring, to the exclusion of a film composer's craft. The latter filmmakers are the ones who want to be the sole creative genii, and in some cases, they should be.

    If that's the case then it's EXACTLY exactly, it's a piece I've heard a year or two back, my ear is very good on these things and there was no difference.

    The piece I'm thinking of (assuming that it is what you want) is from Amelie...

    I tried to YouTube a clip from the soundtrack, but ended up with a bunch of homemade clips...
