    Apparently there's not a topic for Patrick Doyle yet?? If I missed it feel free to get rid of this one. Anyway...I went to The Water Horse tonight and saw the trailer for Nim's Island and it looked really interesting but I couldn't remember who was doing the music...so when I got home I checked into it and discovered that Mr. Doyle was doing it. An interesting choice. It could be really good, hopefully a little more creative than The Last Legion was. This definitely goes on my list of things I'm looking forward to in 2008!
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Nim's Island seemed to me like a rather mediocre family movie, although I did laugh when Jodie was in the water. "No, this is not grrrreat!" biggrin

    It does surprise me Doyle is doing this, though... But I don't expect something special. Hopefully just something fun smile
    Procrastinate now. Don't put it off.

    I can see how it might like like just an average family movie, but I love family movies (especially anything Walden Media does) so one person's mediocre could be another person's special. cool
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Nanny McPhee was a family movie and that had great music.

    Yes! The final cue on that album, "Snow In August" is one of the prettiest things I've ever heard from Doyle.

    This was easy, so I thought I give it a quick shot to let this top three thing gain some speed. smile

    1st place: Henry V. 3 points - This is how I discovered him, and he never topped that IMHO.
    2nd place: Needful Things 2 points - Very, very close to Henry, but... #2.
    3rd place: Eragon 1 point - Because of that one hell-of-an-action-track and because it´s a perfect opportunity to study what a composer can do with one theme only.

    1) A Little Princess
    This is the score that made me a Doyle fan...the "Kindle My Heart" theme is still one of the most beautiful melodies I've ever heard. The whole score just breathes wonder and innocence and joy.

    2) Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire
    Because it has two of the other best Doyle themes ever, "Harry in Winter" and "Hogwarts Hymn", and the action stuff is darn sweet.

    3) Nouvelle France
    "The Reunion" is the other other best Doyle cue ever.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!
  1. 1: Eragon
    2: Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire
    3: Much Ado About Nothing

    Quite difficult and there's not much that stands out from a solid pack of scores. It wouldn't take much for that Top 3 to change.

    Quip 1: I don't think someone whose only heard 2 Patrick Doyle scores should be allowed to vote.

    Quip 2: Also not a bad place to study what a composer can't do with only one theme. wink

    Funny. I think I´ve listened to Frankenstein so often that my wife at one point screamed at me to give it a rest, and I´ve listened to Hamlet more often than there are tracks on it (which means something if you look at the track list). But in the end Eragon came up higher in my ranking. And yes, there are scores below. Much ado about nothing starts nice and falls flat beyond that. I hate what he did to Potter. I love the songs from Quest of Camelot more than the score stuff. Last legion has some interesting stuff in it, but then again, Eragon is better. So please be joking or shut up. wink

    Quip 2: Also not a bad place to study what a composer can't do with only one theme. wink

    I´ll give you that. But it´s a beautiful theme in the end, and that action track STILL is Doyle´s best track ever.
  4. I'm nearly always joking. Except when I'm right. wink

    Much though it pains me to admit it, you're right most of the time.

    Anyway, top three Doyle:

    Hamlet
    Great Expectations
    Nouvelle France

    People like Hamlet? I always thought it was a weak point in his career and never bothered to buy it. But then I was basing that mostly off of Clemmensen's review........

    Is that a nice way of saying I'm painfully unfunny most of the time?

    Then you probably also dislike Elliot Goldenthal without any good reason, and would prefer a mediocre low-key Horner score to any of Goldenthal's fine work. wink

    Actually I think Goldenthal is quite talented. I struggle with his lack of melodicism, but I'm sure with time I'll be quite a fan. That reminds me that I need to listen to Final Fantasy again, on the latest and greatest version of my sound system, LOUDLY.

  6. First update. There will be some changes during the next days I guess...

    1st place: Henry V. / Nouvelle France 6 points each
    2nd place: Hamlet 5 points

    Eragon / Great Expectations / Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire 4 points each
    A Little Princess / Shipwrecked 3 points each
    Needful Things / Wah-Wah 2 points each
    Carlito´s Way / Into the West / Much Ado about Nothing 1 point each

    Well, his Batman scores were very melodical, if rather varied and schzophrenic at times. B&R was much better IMO.

    NIM'S ISLAND
    Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    Music Composed by Patrick Doyle

    Jodie Foster
    Abigail Breslin
    Gerard Butler

    Anything can happen on NIM’S ISLAND, a magical place ruled by a young girl's imagination. On this lush tropical isle, free-spirited NIM (Abigail Breslin) spends her days helping her scientist father with his marine research and playing with her wild animal friends. But Nim’s biggest passion of all is reading books — especially those about her favorite hero, ALEX ROVER (Gerard Butler), the world's greatest adventurer, who leads the sort of endlessly exciting, fearless life to which Nim aspires.

    When Nim's father goes missing from the island, leaving her all alone, a twist of fate brings her together, via computer, with the author of the Alex Rover novels. Much to Nim’s surprise, Alex turns out to be ALEXANDRA (Jodie Foster), a reclusive woman living in the big city who hasn't so much as left her house in years! Now, as a huge storm brews in the ocean and Nim discovers her father is headed for disaster, she reaches out to Alexandra for rescue. Together, they will have to draw on the courage of fictional Alex Rover to carry out a very real adventure — one that will give both Nim and Alexandra each a chance to become the person she always wanted to be as they endeavor to conquer NIM’S ISLAND.

    20th Century Fox and Walden Media open NIM’S ISLAND nationwide on April 4, 2008.

    Catalog #: 302 066 889 2
    Release Date: 04/01/08

    Secondhand Lions is a solid entry from Doyle.
