    Conan The Barbarian Basil Poledouris

    It was on last night, I'd never seen it before. I really enjoyed it! It was stupid, but it was fun. Of course, the score was fantastic in the movie, I was really really impressed. Classic stuff.


    I think it's great fun and a film I cn watch over again.

    I'd love to see a new big budget Conan get made ( I believe a project was in the pipeline a few years ago? ), and properly adhering more to Robert E. Howard's original material and minus Arnold ( he too old now anyway ) who was never quite right for the role anyway. As to a new score well, that would take an impossible effort of GIGANTIC Crom shoe size filling.

    NP:Star Trek (Goldsmith)

    Kill me if you want, but I only listen the mystical stuff " The Cloud", "Vejeaur Speaks"....or even "klingon Battle".

    Wow. a almost religious experience!! give this stuff before the hyper famous "enterprise" any day.


    How... I mean, HOW can you skip over two of the most impressing Goldsmith cues of all time... "The Enterprise" and "Leaving Drydock." Come on man! Anyway, Star Trek: The Motion Picture is easily the best thing Goldsmith ever creating. Bloody brilliant from start to finish!

    Giacchino or Shearmur would be two composers that could probably pull it off. One thing's for sure, women sure like opening their legs to Conan!

    NP: She - Max Steiner
    conducted by William Stromberg performed by the Moscow Symphony

    This is my first listen of this score. I'm not a huge fan of Steiner's work but so far I'm enjoying She. The main theme is lovely and there is a sense of mysticism and mystery in the orchestrations. It's a rather small scale score (number of performers) for Steiner due to budget restraints at the time. However, Tribute used Steiner's original pencil sketches to re-construct the score to it's original form and now the most performing at once (including female chorus) is 60 players. And there is some wonderful woodwind writing and furious action material in this score. "Fight With The Natives" will blow you away! This is another winner from Tribute Film Classics. Excellent performances and brilliant, tight and clear sound quality. Check it out if you can.

    My love for this score arrived late. Because it has too many short tracs and not enought thematic presentation.

    Now, I really love it. One of Powell's best effort. This bizarre mix of Dark and Parodic is brilliant!

    I've never heard this or seen the film? I'm only familiar with the 1960's Ursula Andress / Hammer / James Bernard scored version. I'm interested though.

    She was excellent. It moves into a more Bernard Herrmannesque styled score during the latter half of the album... but would it be correct to call it Herrmannesque in 1935?

    NP: Hellboy II: The Golden Army - Danny Elfman

    Continuing where I left off yesterday... starting with the dynamite cue "Father and Son" which is one of the highlights on this incredibly enjoyable and satisfying album. "Father and Son" is such a tender piece which explodes into this brilliant percussive led action track. Stunning stuff. This is score that definitely has a sense of humour which is why Elfman was a perfect choice to work on the movie... Beltrami would have been the BEST choice though. wink

    Me too. So much fun! I think there are some relatively "dark" bits to this score hidden among some very lighthearted, fun music. A kind of precursor to his X-Men style.
  2. I nominated Gabriel Yared for a score to any new Conan film. Oh that would be heaven.

    True! cool

    It's hard to imagine now but when the composer for CONAN THE BARBARIAN was originally announced as Basil Poledouris I was devastated. Because of Goldsmith scoring THE WIND AND THE LION for Milius I was dead sure that there would be no other choice than my # 1 pick to score my favourite comic book character, how the fuck could Milius go with the guy who scored THE BLUE LAGOON? shocked

    A year later I was drop kicked out of the ball park by one of the most gobsmacking scores I'd ever heard cool

    Unfortunately in this day and age a young gifted composer like Basil who didn't have much of a track record wouldn't get near a film like that nowadays and as Erik said, it'll probably go to RC / MV composers.

    Glad to hear this Erik. I'm looking forward to hearing this - and then I can put my She OST CD (with its archival sound) out to pasture.

    NP: The Dark Knight ~ Howard/Zimmer

    I'm probably the last person on this board to listen to this one. To me, The Dark Knight is an example of a good score written for the film and not for album. It functions well in its purpose as it emphasizes the film's dark tones but standing alone, it does not make for a memorable listening experience. At least not for me. **


    No your not! I haven't heard it.

    And doubt I will until I see the film ( which I really want to see )


    Me too (on all counts).

    Couldn't agree more. That end credits suite is one of the most beautiful and accomplished pieces he's ever written.

  6. NP: Sweet Smell of Success - Elmer Bernstein

    With all the new Bernstein scores around the house I picked up this mid-50s jazz effort. I'd watched the beginning of the movie the other day as I had not heard any of this score before and the main titles track was vintage Bernstein-jazz.

    Chico Hamilton composed some additional music that features on this CD and he provides a great theme for Susan Harrison's character.
