    Haven't heard the song, but very pleased with Atonement considering it was my favorite score this year.

    I'm pleased for Atonement. It was one of my favourite soundtracks of last year.
    I haven't heard "Guaranteed" too, but is nice to see someone like Eddie Vedder, get this kind of awards.
    Now let's see if the Academy is just smart, as the Golden Globes.

    As expected.
    And rightly so.

    Well, for the last few times now, it never was as expected, so I kind of was expecting the unexpected, which would make the expected the unexpected ones, since the unexpected were therefore the expected winners dizzy
  1. I can live with Atonement as winner wink
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh

    Atonement is one of my least-favorite 2007 scores but i am wholly glad about Dario, he's one of the coolest guys ever and really deserves every bit of recognition.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Really?

    Why is that? I missed your opinion on it.

  2. The only person I know who has seen ATONEMENT and thought the music was anything less than brilliant was a film-maker friend of mine who felt the entire film was a complete failure to capture the ideas of the novel.

    I hate the use of the typewriter, the basic disturbance i get from it that is. Yes, i am aware of everyone's arguments but i just can't help it, i simply can't stand it.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.
  3. Funnily enough, the only thing my friend liked about the music was the typewriter! wink

    Any kind of sound effect combined into the music is weird. Like in ''Dinner'' from Mr. & Mrs. Smith there's parrots or some kind of exotic birds...I don't get it...as the name suggests it's for a dinner scene... confused
  4. In a recent Radiohead song, you can hear children yelling out 'Yay' at key moments with the percussion. It's quite a strange touch, but I think it works.

    ...for the two love birds! Have you even seen the movie?? tongue
  6. I'll tell you what I don't get. There's this music John Ottman wrote for a film called CELLULAR, and there's these cell-phone noises all the way through it. I mean: what the f@#$?!

    So did Harry Gregson Williams for some film called Phone Booth! Must've been some kind of popular hype, or something, like vocals and choir, or strings confused

    That probably the most creative thing Ottman has ever come up with... and I loved it!

    I listened to Atonement again and its a good score, but still I feel there are many others more deserving of the award.

    My OP.


    sd smile


    Cornish's Island of Lost Souls or Debney's Lair would have gotten my vote.
    Goldsmith Rules!!

    I absolutely love Lair, but it's so derivative that I'm not sure it should necessarily be considered an original score.

    Hey, so they give out awards even though the Golden Globes was cancelled?

    By the way, I've never heard ATONEMENT or seen the film, so I can't comment on its deservability (is that a word?).
    I am extremely serious.

    Yeap! That's what i am saying too man but admittedly, you approach it in a more 'gentle' way wink Glad you brought it up like this though 'cause if you just take a small step back and think, that fact's pretty evident imo.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.
  8. Also - isn't LAIR a video game score!
