    He is a man that doesn’t just underscore a scene; he’s a man that proceeds way beyond the surface, into the depth of the scene and its meaning, truly elevating it and really capturing the inner musical voice of each on-screen bit of visual he composes for.


    This is interesting. I like his albums a lot but can't say I had noticed this about him - the only movies I've seen scored by him are the two Pixar ones and Mission Impossible, and that seemed like "standard" modern-day surface-level scoring to me. (I say "standard" not in a derogatory sense, since I think he's a fantastic composer.) I wonder if you could give some examples so I can investigate?


    One of the things I like about Southall's reviews is that he often voices what I am thinking! Until I met him, I wasn't convinced I didn't also live in Bristol and work as an actuary.

    Bregt, what would you say to considering a new in-forum law that would ban for life all those b*****d Giacchino / Lost haters? Eh? Come on, make my day man!

  2. I believe there's a difference between 'hate' and 'confusion'.

    And just for that, Demetris, I'm giving you -10 points in the Tango game! tongue

    I'm not going to disagree with that. Giacchino is making his way up, and when he's at the top he's going to be HUGE! biggrin

    I don't open new forums anymore for some time. tongue

    On the other hand, I'm looking forward to my first ban.
    To raise chances, I'd better open new forums.

    And so, all things go in circles.

    I say you make it Demetris becuase he's got the most posts. tongue Let the rest of us catch up. biggrin
  3. What I like about Giacchino's work is that it's a welcome return to mostly pure, orchestral music. It's a dying art which needs preserving. I think we're getting past the 90s stage of being impressed by composers who only seem to string samples and textures together, painting by numbers, etc. and we're looking at a new wave of composers who can really write music, understand harmony etc. It's interesting to note that games music has become very orchestral and traditional in this way of late, which is kind of ironic when you consider it's the most high tech medium.

    lol! biggrin

    What's so good about Lost season 2? It seems almost comical for some reason. confused

    And ok, I lied about Alias. It does contain some good action music, but hardly any of it has been released! angry

    I'm with you there Marselus. At least Kiefer's jail sentence is nearly over. See Demetris, 24 actors REALLY DO go to jail! I don't see anyone from the cast of Lost actually going to live on a desert island. tongue

    Hehe...but "Lost" actors go to jail too, they are always caught driving under influence! I wonder what do the cops say to them when they relaize they´ve just caught a celebrity. Do they ask for answers of the show (I would do that)? tongue

    Seriously, if I was the cop who pulled over Kiefer Sutherland, I think I'd have let him go and told him he owes me big time. tongue

    I'll happily go on the buy one ticket get one free on Wednesdays. tongue

    The monster stuff looks pretty cool (did anyone catch the oil rig getting eaten?), but it looks like one of the films where all the characters will get on peoples nerves and only end up getting killed.

    Score! smile

    I´m really lookong forward the movie (and, well, the End Credits cue), but I´ll have to make an effort, because in Spain the title of the movie will be "Monstruous". I hope the guy that entitled the movie is already waiting in prison to be executed.

    Right, Cloverfield comes out in the US tomorrow, but I want to see NO REFERENCES to the "monster" without CLEAR SPOILER TAGS. I can't see the film over here until it comes out in February, so no ruining it for me or anyone else!
  4. SPOILER The monster's 'voice' is based on a twisting of Dame Edna's unmistakable tones.

    Wild horses couldn't drag me to see it. The trailer made me feel sick and when it announced who the producer was, that was pretty much the final straw.

    It sounded more like Les Patterson to me.

    About the Cloverfield overture:

    It's aptly called Roar! and is said to be "even more than exquisite, it's Giacchino in his best shape" (a user over at the IMDb boards). "It's got a very 50's sci-fi, campy, Godzilla-esque sound, and it's a really fun track."

    About the availability: "Giacchino has said that he is "hoping to get the tune available on iTunes or the like." Let's keep our fingers crossed!
