    I knew what he was saying I just wanted him to say it.

    Remember, I'm a father so listening to (and watching) Tinker Bell with my daughter (at her request) is Ok. But in any case, I have no issues telling people I listen to that score, or any of the Twilight scores or anything else that a big, butch guy SHOULDN'T be listening to. I'm a film music geek. Isn't that crazy enough?

  2. NP: Moonrise Kingdom (Various)

    I'm not crazy about the Britten stuff from 'Noye's Fludde', effective though it is in the film. What I do enjoy more, having now seen the film, is the wistful 'Cuckoo' song from Britten, the cue from Britten's Midsummer Night's Dream, and the songs from Hank Williams. (The fairy tale quirky material from Desplat and Britten's Guide to the Young Person's Orchestra were always charming.)

    And of course De L'amour by Françoise Hardy. What a song!

  3. Ah yes. Quite a scene too.

    Seriously -- what a really nice film.

    Les Biches - Pierre Jansen

    One of my absolute favourite Chabrol films and always wanted to have Jansen's wonderfully unsettling score on CD. Probably rank this as one of my favourite releases of recent times.

    I didn't mean to touch a nerve, I was just pointing out it's a funny world we film music fans occupy. I was poking fun at our niche interest. It's important to see the funny side is it not? wink

    It's a great score but a shame that the superb and Bondish main theme doesn't get more of a workout.

    I'm open to some thing along the line of The Avengers and Soldier. I love the martial stuff in the latter score. I'm in a bit of a brassy mood today.

    NP: The Musketeer - David Arnold

    Yummy. Love it.

    yes!!!! The thematic material is hugely under utilized. This would have been a 5 star score if we had more statements of the theme.

    Band of Brothers - Michael Kamen

    I was lucky enough to meet Kamen a couple of times, and he was a very generous, very funny, very passionate man - but I didn't need to meet him to know that. It's right there in his music. This is quite some album.

    Species - Christopher Young

    The main titles cue is a great beginning. 3 or 4 cues do feel redundant but the rest of the score - especially the action music - is pure gold! smile

    Some of the best scores ever written imo, and Z and co ripped it off poorly later on for the pacific.

    I don't think it's much of a Band of Brothers rip-off. And I don't think it's very poor either. I see The Pacific more as The Thin Red Line for Dummies.

    I'm sure he has a better more technical explanation but the overall feel and orchestrations are reminiscent of TTRL, it just has more traditional and obvious melodic sense.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!
  5. Yeah, exactly. The series also make very similar points about the effect of war on a human being though without all the philosophical backdrops. It is just more melodic and more obvious in its emotional intensity. In fact a major Zanelli theme is basically a Light rip-off and not a small one at that.

    To Matt's points, I would also add an obvious harmonic sense, there are no subtle dissonances in the thematic material, it's very neoclassical in its harmony and melodic approach. And the main theme rather than being a ripoff of Kamen's beautiful theme is merely a more token Americana melody, pretty, but somewhat generic at that.

    I do like The Pacific and that Light rip-off, go figure, is one of my favourite non-Zimmer RCP tunes.

    Yoko - Mark Anthony Yeager (a Badelt minion/student-person)
    Its sort of okish but really boring and cliched. It's probably one of his first scores ever so I won't judge him too harshly, and it seems to be entirely synthetic (unless I'm hearing wrong) so that makes it hard for anything to really shine unless you're as clever with them as someone like Zimmer or Soule (not that Zimmer and Soule are anything alike, they are just both good with synths).

    Unless you are an RCP or Badelt fanatic, just don't bother this this score.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!
  6. Angels In America - Thomas Newman

    I wonder if Newman has it in him to compose anything as fully realized and epic as this again.

    NP: Judge Dredd - Alan Silvestri

    Still feeling very brassy today. And this is one of my favorite Silvestri score that fills the need exceptionally well. This would have made for an excellent Avengers score. Those martial drums, that victorious theme, those brassy passages, dat ass... yummy.

    Any plans to release a complete edition of this wonderful score?

    No rumors yet.

    Looking over quickly at their CD's, I see these were released by LLLR:

    "Hook"
    "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier"
    "Godzilla"

    I stopped -- didn't see any other title released by other labels, so ... so far it's only LLLR releasing new editions of previously released Epic Records scores.

    So, I bet they're working on it. No way LLLR would pass that up.

    NP: Johnny English - Edward Shearmur

    Extremely enjoyable. Very fair amount of brassy stuff and just really well done. This, and his Reign of Fire score is my favorite Shearmur score. Way better than Ilan Eshkeri's sequel score, IMHO.
