    Ah, it's Gravity 2. I like it a lot. Demetris will hate it a lot.


    And tell me how this fits a war movie again?

    Once again, Demetris and I are on opposite poles. GRAVITY was -- by far -- the best film of last year, and the score among the Top 3. Especially in the film, but it has grown on me considerably on album too.


    Ok this makes 2 people. Thor and Southall (what's happened to Southall btw? he used to have such a good taste beer wink kiss moon)


    Sorry D, that makes 3 now! tongue

    It's extremely claustrophobic, intense, visceral - the intention is to put you in the mind of the soldiers, experiencing an onslaught of pressure and tension. It's a similar approach to Black Hawk Down.
  1. And, indeed, Gravity. Claustrophobia, intensity...yeah, I guess it makes sense. Not the sort of approach that makes for an album I'll enjoy, though.

    Anybody who didn't like Gravity except for the last couple of tracks will most certainly not like this.

    uhm

    How does any score fit any film?
  2. I guess D is wondering why a score for a war movie would sound extremely similar to one for a space thriller. It's a fair enough question, I think.

    I suppose. But the implication is that it couldn't, and it might work very well. There's no rule that a war film, or perhaps more generally any period film should be scored with a symphonic orchestra, even if they tend to lend themselves to that approach.

    Genre is completely irrelevant anyway.

    What matters is how the music adds to the style or approach of the film.
    I am extremely serious.
  3. Right - and I didn't say anything about orchestral vs. not-orchestral. The danger is of Price becoming a one-trick pony very fast, one who doesn't have anything to offer beyond a very specific style of heavily processed, manipulated music. He can't just slather that onto every film and expect it to work - but so far, that's all he has done.

    Then again, I haven't heard this score, so I have no idea whose side I'm even arguing. dizzy

    After recently listening to the score of this year´s RoboCop, I must say this is the very first time where I thought that a dark RC-type, ostinato-driven action score was incredibly boring to me. I am used to love this style, but this one was immensely lacking originality. When the only highlight is a short jingle of Poledouris' original theme, you know something went really wrong here.

    Hell, if I don´t like a score of this type, something is DAMN wrong here.

    Yes, we all know Poledouris is a tough act to follow, but I´m inclined to say that Bates did a better job with the recent Conan remake than the guy who did this one.

    The movie, however, was at least trying to do something good and relevant with the story, but had to fail, ultimately, because, let´s be honest, how do you beat Verhoeven if you are not Verhoeven?

    There's a lot of hate for Captain America 2: Electric Boogaloo, and deservedly so, but I think Robocop is worse. It's loathsome.
  4. I really like Winter Soldier. That´s how bad RoboCop is.

    NP: KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM (Bear McCreary)

    The heavy metal meets Irish stuff is fun, but again McCreary presents an album that is too long. This had been really good had it clocked in at 40 minutes or so.
    I am extremely serious.

    You don't still defend that Bates Conan score though, do you? Because it's really rather awful.

    It's better than Robocop, that's all I'm saying. Most things are (except Winter Soldier).

    I listened to WINTER SOLDIER last night, and it reconfirmed that I like this far better than anyone else, it seems.

    I loved ROBOCOP (the film), but don't remember that much from the score.

    I can reconfirm the new Robocop score is terrible, so you may like it.

    I really like it, so we´re two.
  6. Demetris is with you guys as well, if I recall correctly. So that's three for the insane asylum so far.

    The world has gone mad. One moment I'm disagreeing vehemently with Demetris, then I'm agreeing. Then it's the same with Steven. Then with Southall etc. etc.

    There is no system anymore!

    I think we need to talk about Poledouris' CONAN soon -- a score that everyone and their grandmother likes. Just to have some common ground.
    I am extremely serious.

    Did you know I can enjoy 2001: A Space Odyssey purely on its audiovisual merits, divorced from the central story.

    Screw the system.

  8. Penny Dreadful - Abel Korzeniowski

    Pretty good in parts, but man if it doesn't sail exceptionally close to his Romeo and Juliet score from last year, especially "Street Horse Smell Candle" and "Welcome to the Grand Guignol". If James Horner or any of the RC guys pulled something this blatant, the cries of hackery would be deafening.

    BlackHawk Down was full of themes and varying pieces, not snoozy ambiance. And what was wrong with film score approaches to war films like War of the worlds or Saving private Ryan?

    Penny Dreadful is significantly inferior (inspirational-wise) to his previous works, esp. Romeo and Juliet.
