    Timeline Jerry Goldsmith

    I've always thought of this as a sequel score to The 13th Warrior. Doesn't have as strong a theme as that score, but the action material is just as enjoyable to my ears. Even the 'synth farts' are pleasing to my ears. I love this score.

    Now this is good old James in his most inspired mode. The 90s were just his best period. FACT! cool


    Love it, great score! Not a fan of the songs on the cd though.

    I hate to tell you this, but I wasn't a big fan of it. I was excited to hear it, because I really like everything of RVW's that I've ever heard. There are moments of this I really liked (the huge climaxes in the first movement, the lovely strings toward the beginning of the 2nd mvt), but overall the symphony was too unsettling for my tastes. The symphony is great at projecting an air of dark mystery, and grand consequence, but I prefer his Rhapsody on a Theme of Thomas Tallis, or The Lark Ascending (which I discovered thanks to you), or his take on Greensleeves, or three other pieces I'm familiar with, though not by name. Still, I'm glad to have heard it. My familiarity with his body of work has just been greatly expanded. And if I ever got a chance to hear this performed live, I would take it. I think it would be really amazing live.

    Yes it is a very dark work and I also know it isn't to everyones taste but I'm pleased you gave it a listen. I still recommend giving the actual ( rerecorded ) film score a listen, it's quite a different experience and even ends on a possitive theme ( which I believe was forced on the film makers to have a message of hope after such a downbeat ending ).

    p.s. I'm pleased to have been instrumental in you discovering some of RVW's great works.

  3. James Newton Howard - Dinosaur

    One of my all-time favourite animation scores. Very dramatic and mature, while retaining the adventurous and playful nature in other cues. Some beautiful themes there too.

    This is the JNH I love, superb score! I know everyone loves The Egg Travels ( me too ) but possibly my favourite track is Breakout, from about a minute onwards it's that poignant and rapturous build up just sends tingles down my spine. beautiful.

  4. My favourite moments are a very warm moment in The Inner Sanctum/Nesting Grounds and a dark tribal moment in Finding Water. If I ever make a sect movie in the future I'll use it as a temp-track

    NP : 2001 - Alex North



    This is the recording conducted by Jerry Goldsmith. I really have to be in the right mood to listen to this stuff but today my brain needs a cerebral bite to eat and North fits that bill nicely.

    NP : LE DEMON DE L'HIMALAYA - Arthur Honegger



    In the form of two symphonic movements adapted from his score, fine music it is too, disquieting and even minimalistic and with that lovely mysterioso sound I like so much. The finale includes Ondes Martenot and choir. I guess this sort of counts as amongst the earliest film music I have.

    That's a nice song, I like it. What's your other two favourite film music songs*? You tell me yours and I'll tell you mine. wink

    *by this I presume you mean a song written for the film? Not a pre-existing song.

    "Surrender" by k.d. lang and "Blaze of Glory" by Bon Jovi.

    I also have a soft spot for Sting's "It's Probably Me" from Lethal Weapon 3, "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" from South Park: The Movie, "America" from Team America: World Police, "Danger Zone" from Top Gun and the Finding Home End Title song by Holly Conlan.

    Now there's an interesting line of thought. "Town Without Pity" by Tiomkin (from the film of the same name) is a brilliant song, particularly the cover by Eddi Reader. I love some of the Barry/Bond songs, particularly "Diamonds Are Forever" and "We Have All the Time in the World". I won't list all the Randy Newman songs I think are great, since I think they're all great. Clearly this is a topic that I need to spend some enjoyable time thinking about.

    What!? No 'Your ZOWIE Face' from In Like Flint? shocked wink

    Interesting. I only like three of those and that's Surrender and America and Finding Home. None of them would make my top 20.

    My favourites in no particular order...

    Moon River
    We Have All The Time In The World ( possibly my all time favourite )
    The Windmills of Your Mind
    You Only Live Twice
    Goldfinger
    Live And Let Die
    The Spy Who Loved Me
    Kiss Me, Kill Me, Thrill Me ( from one of the Batman films )

    Dammit... I forgot two. "A View To A Kill" by Duran Duran and "Back In Time" by Huey Lewis and the News. Man, "Power of Love" is so good, too.

    Man, maybe I so a film songs show... one day.

    I really like Kiss Me, Kill Me, Thrill Me. Live and Let Die is a bizzare tune (I hate the original version of it soooooo much so I always turn to Gn'R's remake) Moon River I can only take as an instrumental. I adore Diana Krall's version of The Look Of Love.
