    It did have a good score. An excellent score actually!

    Today I'm listening to Horner's Amazing Spiderman and I'm wondering if at least the theme will be continued in part 2. I enjoy this score very very much.

    Well, I can easily imagine in my head a Zimmerized version of that theme...

  1. Classic Brit Award for Hans Zimmer...

    The Classic Brit Awards is one of the worst (or best) examples of an industry self-congratulatory, back-slapping events there is. I get the impression that these awards are not regarded too highly within "classical" circles: it is all about self-promotion. And choosing Zimmer will certainly generate a lot of column inches.

    I'm sure these things have classical purists spitting blood. biggrin

    Zimmer now joins the likes of John Williams, John Barry and Andrew Lloyd Webber as former recipients of that award.

    Just one thing about Jon's review that pointed out something to me is that Zimmer has been Ron Howard's composer since 2006. I really hope he dumps Zimmer for his next project, IN THE HEART OF THE SEA and gives it to his other long time collaborator James Horner.

    Or even ( and get this )..... Lee Holdridge. Imagine that! Unfortunately that's nearly as likely as Herman Melville writing the screenplay.

    The film is based on the true ( and horrific ) story that influenced MOBY DICK, there aren't many composers who do 'the sea' as well as Horner.

    As for Holdridge? Hey, he was great for 5 seconds while Ron Howard was cutting his teeth on becoming a director. I know there must be other pressures involved but imagine how cool that would be to have Holdridge's name on a bonafide A-list big budget film.

    Yeah, probably. I keep forgetting Spotify (something about the commercial interuptions that prevent me from going there more often).

  5. I haven't found it on spotify, but maybe it's not available in the u.s. yet?

    Hmmm...had a listen to RUSH on Spotify. Not very impressed. DAYS OF THUNDER it's definitely not, although some of the latter's more percussive tracks may resemble a bit.

    MAN OF STEEL remains my favourite Zimmer this year, followed by THE LONE RANGER.
    I am extremely serious.

    I would very much like to hear Zimmer do a "sea" score...especially considering how brilliant his music was for the only one of the Pirates films that tried for a more traditional sea-epic feel.

    That and Pirates?

    I'll raise you COCOON and THE PERFECT STORM which kills both Zimmer efforts stone dead.

  8. Actually he meant Pirates 3 biggrin .

    Hans wrote a more traditional swashbuckler with Muppet Treasure Island though. Probably due to the film's title and, well, character, that score is a bit overlooked, though far from perfect.

    Also, Ron Howard has a somehow more traditional approach to film music, so if he gets Hans, it will be an orchestral score, at worst more like Da Vinci Code.

    Oh, next time I'll make sure I'll write out the full title PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 3: AT WORLDS END just so nobody is in any doubt whatsoever about what I meant.

    Better!?

  9. The number would be useful wink We all know parts one and two (I won't mention four, if I may) are as close to anything sea-related as Warsaw is to Honolulu...

    Anyway, could you expand a bit on the original story? I'm curious.

    Oh, I didn't get the comment Thor made... No, Crimson Tide isn't a traditional sea-epic score.

    Maybe not a swashbuckler, no, but it's got plenty of 'sea'-isms nonetheless, including -- of course -- the seafaring hymn "Eternal Father, Strong to Save".

    I forgot all about the Muppet film! That's gotta be it right there. I haven't heard that one yet myself, though.
