    But... Danny Elfman on Mulan? shocked Can't imagine dizzy


    LOL, yeah! biggrin


    I can: theremin, fluffy orchestra with bells and woodwinds high, female choirs and vocalists screaming and "oooooeeeeiiiiiiii" singing for 2 hours.....the horror; the horror.


    rolleyes

    Give me a break.

    Elfman has proved time and time again that he can adapt his style to fit any film. Are his more dramatic works... Sommersby and Black Beauty full of theremins, female choirs, wild zany Burtonesque music, etc. No. You are better than this, Demetris.

    That Short Hair bit is the worst-scored part of the film, the music jumps out and is totally at odds with everything else. They should have listened to Jerry!

    Yeah, it sounds very out of place, as well as the songs, which don't blended in score... I think the directors didn't care about musical continuity rolleyes

    But on the other hand, I find the alternate cue on the official album (the latter part of Mulan's Decision) is a bit too triumphant (not sure it's a proper English word to describe it) for that scene. Perhaps the final version played by real instruments could be work better.

    (But I haven't seen the movie for a while, so I may change my mind later...)

    You really think so? Jerry used the themes from the songs a lot of times during the movie, and, most prominently, in that fantastic suite, so the continuity is there.

    Did he Ralph? I only remember them in the suite (which isn't in the film) and I think one of them was arranged for the very brief opening titles, but otherwise I didn't think he incorporated any of them? I might be remembering wrong, of course.
  3. Ehm, now that you mention it... I didn´t listen to it in recent time, but I thought he used them within the movie. Might be something I heard in the... ehm... complete edition... ehm...

  5. I've just tried to order the rejected Timeline but cant find it anywhere. Its gone from the Varese website and out of stock everywhere, is this now out of print?

    Yes, it's out of print, but not inobtainable.

    EDITED: it's not even out of print.
    Quite readily available, just not by the larger outlets like Amazon or Varese.

  6. I ordered it a while back on SAE but it was unavailable at the time, I told them they should delete the CD from their website, but as I can see now it's back. But I'm guessing it won't be for long.

    I have a question for Goldsmith fans.

    What is the appeal to you of Total Recall?

    I have repeatedly tried to give this score a chance and every time, I end up thinking it an incredibly boring score as it lacks the rich melodies that normally give Goldsmith's music it's charm (to me). Please understand that I am not trying to be harsh or critical. I love most of Goldsmith's music, and it simply baffles me why exactly this score of his is held in such regard. If I can figure out what I am supposed to be liking about it, maybe I will grow to like it too!
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    I can see where you're coming from Matt. It's quite a 'harsh' score in some respects, but its appeal to me is its complexity in the action material (and the sometimes eery/epic quality it sometimes delves into, with tracks like 'The Mutant').

    Not for everyone though, that's for sure!

    I can't remember much off it, probably heard it a couple of times long time ago but it's interesting to observe how many people insist it's probably the best action score ever.

    I think it's certainly one of the best action scores, at least within the last twenty years. I admit it took me a while to get into it but now I think it is absolutely marvelous. Long live the music of Goldsmith.

    I wouldn't go as far as saying it's the best, but it's certainly an important action score IMO. It's not even one of my favourite actions scores though, there's a ton of other action scores I'd pick over Total Recall.

    I agree with you. It is one of the finest action scores to come out since 1990. Not too many since then have been able to match the excitement and creativity of this fine score.

    Third paragraph down pretty much sums up why a lot of people appreciate this score as much as they do.

    When I listen to the score again I will post a detailed review in the Now Playing thread. In the meantime, what I posted a few minutes ago was all I was able to spare during my lunch time.

    PS - Clemmensen is spot on with his review of Total Recall... especially that third paragraph.

    Why? If you don't like it, don't listen to it. Maybe you'll return to it later in your life and enjoy it, maybe not. For now, go and listen to something you like!
