  1. I confess there's been two reasons why I haven't been here as much lately. One, my car CD player is broken, and I won't be able to afford to fix it for a long time. And two, well...I've been kind of hooked on video game music, and I did not wish to invite scorn and mocking for my jovial fondness for this. Because good lord do I love love LOVE David Bergeaud's Ratchet and Clank scores. I can't help it. There's just so many spiritually satisfying tunes in these things.
  2. It's easier to decide something sucks in advance and either apathetically have your low expectations met, or be joyously surprised.
  3. Most of the greatest characters of all time are huge unapologetic arseholes. I say keep going.
  4. I want to see this same team tackle the Garbage Pail Kids reboot.
  5. That was physically painful to listen to! I had to slit my wrists after playing that cue to soothe the pain! Michael Giacchino is the worst thing to EVER happen to the entire music industry! Why can't they just use Jerry Goldsmith's classic score over and over? Film music is DEAD! DEAD! VERY VERY DEAD!
  6. If you say so, chap...I generally get nervous and anxiety-filled when trying to write anything resembling a review. For the record, I like Giacchino okay. Neither a big fan or a hater. But I really like INSIDE OUT and DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and I find much to enjoy in JURASSIC WORLD.
  7. Nolan isn't to Yumi's interests. She'd rather kill grasshoppers and bring them into the house. And the occasional flying roach.
  8. My cat loves the score too. Her opinion is more valid than mine.
  9. ....into Carol's pants?
  10. I am intensely terrible at articulating myself, hence I am extremely nervous of the idea of gushing about a superhero movie (whether or not it's a good one) in this area. You're better off asking my cat what she thought of this movie than reading this brainless praise. But I'll let it out anyway. Batman Returns is for my personal resonance the most satisfying superhero movie ever made and Tim Burton's most engrossing work, as well as Danny Elfman's most spiritual listening experience. I find it especially difficult to choose a favorite aspect to single out why I love this thing. Everything feels perfect. The performances are insane and perfect and insanely perfect, I can't hold one above the other (though if I HAD to choose a favorite character, it'd likely be Danny DeVito's appealingly disgusting Penguin). I can't choose a favorite scene, as despite being a rather long film I can't think of a single moment I'd cut out (either for story significance or just pure sick fun). Selina Kyle going all Ren Hoek and becoming Catwoman isn't my favorite moment, but it's perhaps a watershed moment. The moment I first get goosebumps, my eyes get all watery and I know I'm in for something super special and suited to my tastes. It's also one of the greatest Danny Elfman moments ever, if not the greatest. I wasn't a big fan of him as a composer (I was in the "he should've stuck with Oingo Boingo" category) until I experienced this film and finally grasped why he's damn gnarly. Please don't read this. Just scroll past and move on with your Giacchino-hating lives.
  11. Looney Tunes is better than either, you maroons.
  12. The carnivore motif should've been foreshadowed during the raptor hatching in the first Jurassic Park.
  13. Beetlejuice is better than any of those other things.
  14. I'd rather just wait for Small Soldiers DE.
