    He's my favourite of the "Media Venturers". Those to emerge from Hans Zimmer's posse. He's also the one I believe has crafted the most distinctive personal style of them all, away from the original Venture-sound of the late 90s. Not that there was anything wrong with that, but to see such orchestral colour coming out of a Media Venturer in post-2000 scores is very refreshing. The fact that he was able to make that transition is probably the reason he became such a big bankable name, while others such as Nick Glennie-Smith sadly didn't.

    Just found this song in Youtube. It appears to be an unused, unreleased track that Powell created for the Bourne Ultimatum. Sounds strange, yet resembling. I don't know whether this would have fitted for the movie (maybe that's why it was rejected), but it doesn't sound bad on its own. C'mon Powell, give us an extended ultimate deluxe box from this trilogy, or something! smile

    I can't look at it as I'm at work, but is it just the remix of To The Roof that's in the end credits?

    It seems to me like a demo or an alternate take on some of the themes, but I don´t know. Besides, audio in youtube is not the best you can get, so difficult to tell. Maybe Anthony can help once he listens the clip.

    Is it "The Bourne Identity" from The Bourne Identity? wink
  1. Brett Ratner might be directing the new Conan remake. While I would like to see Schifrin at least get a chance to show what he can do, I doubt the studio will let him. Probably turn to Powell, who scored X3.

    What about Danny Elfman? Anyway, if Brett Ratner is directing I could care less about who is composing the score. BRETT RATNER? That's the best they could come up with? Generic!

    Why wouldn't they let Schifrin? If anything he's more qualified than Powell for something like this.

    Then again, the studio is letting Ratner at the helm of a film again, so clearly someone's lost it. dizzy

    You know, it'll be interesting to see John Powell do a big epic orchestral score. I wanna see if he can do it.

    It's possible. Why not? If we can get a respectable Batman film then I'm sure if you get the right people you can get a solid Conan film. Jeez... and you say I'm the impersonation of negativity.

    Boring? X-Men III? Far from it. Not even should if you know what the word means if you describe Powell's X-Men III as boring.

    Well it is, for many other people as well i believe. Apart from a couple of bombast tracks, the rest is on auto pilot, when you take into consideration Powell's general body of work. I'd take PAYCHECK - the whole of it, every single note, a thousand times and any day over the generic 3/4 of X-MEN III.

    Lord of the Rings! Conan, if done RIGHT, could come out as good as the Lord of the Rings if you get the right people involved. And other comic book adaptations have come out just fine in the past few years. The first two Spider-Man pictures, Hellboy, the world LOVED Iron Man, Sin City, etc. It is possible... but not with Brett Ratner on board!

    While it was a slow moving picture and really didn't relate much to the comic books that came before it, it's still a much better picture than what would be produced today with someone like Brett Ratner involved. I still watch the movie from time to time... and I really enjoy it. And it was one of those rare films where a great score was the glue that held the film together. A wonderful marriage of vis and music!

    Fair enough, it still comes down to one's background and what he grew up with, imo. Personally, If it hadn't been for the phenomenal score, i'd roll down the floor laughing;

    You asked if there have been any good and great comic book films or films of that sort in the past ten years. I gave you a list of good or great ones.

    As for the Lord of the Rings example... the tone is similar in LOTR and Conan. If you can make a great LOTR you can make a great Conan. I mean, any film can be great but only if you can get the right people involved and let them make a good film without a lot of outside interference.

  2. Personally, only Yared could pull off what it needs. Unless it's some crappy crap like other remakes, then I could care less who scores it.

    Well, I didn't grow up with Conan. I had a vague idea of what he was before I saw the film but Conan: the Barbarian was my first introduction to the world of Conan. I enjoyed it. Now, if you want to talk about rolling on the ground laughing watch Conan The Destroyer!

    Disagree completely that Yared is the ONLY one. Guys like Ed Shearmur, Elliot Goldenthal, Joel Goldsmith, David Arnold, etc are more than capable of delivering the goods for a film of this sort. Even Lalo Schifrin who would be an inspired choice!

    Are you talking about the movie or score?

    (I assume score, as I agree with you there. In terms of movie, the second is also my favourite).
