  1. It sounds an awful lot like his Cars 2 score.
  2. He does, but it is pretty bad. I wonder why Giacchino didn't choose to quote Tyler's instead, he seems to be the master of quoting past franchise themes and did a nice job adapting Silverstri's theme
  3. Except for the GREAT MoH-like action setpiece "Monumental Meltdown". I liked a lot. Here is the thing about Giacchino, his themes may not be the best nor the most complex ones (except for the Yorktown theme from ST:Beyond, that one is awesome), but he is always able to make them interesting. He is the exact opposite of Hans Zimmer (good themes, bad arrangements, orchestrations and development).
  4. Ok, I get that.. it does not sound great by any means, I was just surprised by the "Just orchestral noise" comment, as it sounded incredibly harsh. If anything, there is some nice arrangements of the Spider-Man theme a the 0:36
  5. Ok.. this negativity is really bothering me. Is it because you guys expect more from Giacchino? Because it sounds much better than Jackman's Civil War score. Just the fact that we have new memorable themes, even if simplistic, and some orchestral complexity already makes it much better than at least 60% of recent blockbuster scores.
  6. Now let's all stop for a second and fear what may become of the Star Wars theme in case Hans Zimmer takes the helm on Han Solo. Remember what he did with Lalo Schifrin's Mission Impossible theme in here:
  7. I am not being able to open it
  8. Nah, I was just listing James Cameron's films that have bad script because someone said that Terminator and Aliens have good scripts despite that I said that I find most of his films badly written. Other than Lee Curtis I don't even like True Lies. Having said that, I do think that Avatar is great, despite its problems. The universe is fascinating and no one can be direct a grand film like Cameron
  9. That is why I said "most of his movies". Titanic, Avatar, True Lies and Abyss have really ok to poor scripts
  10. Also, this really pisses me off. I mean, Disney is taking risks by choosing Breaking Bad and Brick director Rian Johnson to direct episode 8. Why would they choose such a safe option for ep 9 if it is the one that will finish the trilogy. My guess (and hope) is that he will be fired by this time next year.
  11. Avatar, Titanic, and almost all of James Cameron'a films
  12. Some reviews that I read really bash the directing. Saying that Teverrow could not bring any style to the movie and was not able to handle the scripts turns. At least most of the reviews praise the score. Saying that does other than Watts is the only thing keeping the movie together.
  13. Gosh.. if they still go with Teverrow I will be very surprised. I mean, what has he done to deserve such an assignment. Sure "Safety not Guaranteed" was a good indie movie, more due to the actors than the direction, but ok. Than he got Jurassic World which was ok at best. Now he, with full control, directed a movie that is being panned across the board. While great directors are need of opportunities they give one o for the most anticipted movies ever tô an inexpiriences and amateur director.
  14. This movie may cost Teverrow his chance of directing Star Wars 9. I wouldn't be to surprised if Ep 8 is great, Johnson returning for 9
