    Hey maintitles, at what point did you realize James Newton Howard's "Hunger Games" scores were the best scores of the last decade?

    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    I listened two more times to the overture and have now concluded that there is little if any Russian influence at all. The work is unique to Howard and works in the film. As a stand alone piece of classical music it would never be performed.
    listen to more classical music!

    Here's my Horn & Trumpet Cover of John's fantastic Leviathan Battle cue from Atlantis !
  1. My review of FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD, for anyone who's interested:

  2. I've been listening to The Nutcracker and the Four Realms by James Newton Howard and there's a section of the Mouserinks cue from about 2:20 to 3:00 that sounds so much like James Horner that I forget what I'm listening to for a second! It's sounds like something right out of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas or Willow, but it's very nostalgic and makes me miss Horner and wonder how he would have approached Four Realms if he had been around o compose for it.

    Have you ever been similarly "derailed" by a cue that sounds like a totally different composer somewhere within it? smile

    If anything, the score is drenched in Tchaikovsky (for obvious reasons). But yes, a fine score -- will probably be the only traditional, orchestral score on my top 10 this year.
    I am extremely serious.

    Every time I listen to a John Debney score wink. His ability to channel other composers' sounds is uncanny. A lot of JUNGLE BOOK made me think I was listening to Goldsmith. A lot of DRAGONFLY could easily have been composed by JNH. A lot of DREAMER sounds like James Horner.

    As for the "Mouserinks" cue, since you mentioned it, I do hear a little James Horner in there, but I never would have noticed if you hadn't brought it to my attention. Anything that reminds me of him is a good thing, so thanks for sharing smile
