  1. Ok, I'm out. Too much rudeness around here.

  2. That is exactly what I hoped would happen.
  3. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    The one that always bothers me are parents bringing little kids to a movie. You can't afford a babysitter, but you can afford to bring your crying brat into Skyfall?
  4. The Complete Cue Lists Thread

    Uh, me. Knowing I have every cue is a huge boner-killer.
  5. Err, not quite - the OST has some editing differences from the score as presented on the first couple discs.
  6. The Complete Cue Lists Thread

    That there's a cue in Homeward Bound titled 'The Wet Pussy' is great. That it's in a Disney movie is fucking uproarious.
  7. Thomas Newman's Skyfall

    Interesting. Looks like it doesn't need strong melody to be successful after all.
  8. Thomas Newman's Skyfall

    Its use in the last two (and TWINE) was fine. The other two maybe overegged the pudding, but only DAD feels like he's using it as a crutch.
  9. I wouldn't mind a few that aren't Star Wars. Lucasfilm isn't just Star Wars, any more than Disney is just Mickey Mouse.
  10. The Overregarded and Overrated

    I'd have to say Lost, kinda. Music's good (great even) in fits and starts, but it's not a patch on Giacchino's film work.
  11. THOMAS NEWMAN FOR THERE AND BACK AGAIN! He's perfect!
  12. Thomas Newman's Skyfall

    With every listen, I get more and more out of it. The quirky plucked rhythms, eclectic layers of percussion, deft string writing, portentous brass, and the electronics... what can I say? They're Cool, man! If this is as derivative as some of you say, please direct me to other scores with this exact sound, I'd love to hear them. Otherwise, get Thomas Newman to score more action movies.
  13. The Overlooked And Underrated

    Angels In America Road To Perdition Howard The Duck Goldeneye (mostly among the older set)
  14. The Overregarded and Overrated

    Star Wars. All six of 'em. Don't dislike them by any means, but a little goes a long way.
  15. Thomas Newman's Skyfall

    Bullshit, that is quality fat right there!
