  1. The main theme is really fun, easily my favorite MCU musical theme
  2. Scorsese's last movie was everything but
  3. Paulinho da Costa is actually quite famous around here. Apparently, he was one of the percussionists in the Lost World
  4. I've always been quite taken by Hera's music in this score. I can't quite put my finger on it
  5. It loses some steam in the second half, but tracks like Masbath's Terrible Death and specially The Story just ooze atmosphere. Definitely also in my Elfman's top 5
  6. I find it really disheartening when I see Sleepers being mentioned in a thread of this sort. I really do
  7. Mission to Mars is among my favorite Morricone scores
  8. The whole premise is quite intriguing and I would even say quite timely, but the writing really is sub par. It reads like an outline from which a talented writer could spurn an awesome yarn
  9. I supose, that might be a apt comparision. In the prequels, there's none of the corporate cynism atached to lesser quality blockbusters, that tends to suggest the movie makers are in on the joke and know they are making crap. Profitable crap, but still crap. With the prequels, the feeling one gets is that there is a conviction and earnestness in the perception of the quality of the movie they are making. It makes it endearing. I find none of that in the hobbit, which just reeks of cynism and condescendence
  10. Yes, that's a very fair assessment
  11. I don't think Tyler is a capable composer...
  12. There's a certain charm to the Prequel's ineptitude. It's like the makers of those movies were living in a world of their own. Their flaws, while many, are not generic Hollywood flaws. Their inept tone is quite unique. The Hobbit trilogy is one cliché after the other. Its flaws, of which are many, are pretty much common to most crappy movies of this sort. They are therefore much less unique. Many movies suck in the very same way as the hobbit movies. But not many, if any, movie can suck in the quite same tone as the prequels do. And besides, those were not needlessly streched into 3 movies nor were they based on a much loved book. Plus, they were scored by John Williams, and that's a major plus
  13. This was probably the episode I enjoyed the least thus far, although I still found it to be very good. It seemed to me to be the most meandering thus far, the one that introduced less new interesting elements. But we'll only know where this episode will stand in the larger context of the series, I'm sure, as some of its apparently more inconsequential scenes could have greater weight once watched in the larger scope of things
  14. I think I dislike all of them
