    Software Question

    The quick and easy way is just to take a screen-shot. It's kind of cheating, but it works. Depends on exactly what it is you're doing, and what level of quality you need though.

    Film Music Is Dead.

    I'm not saying that the ratio of crap to truly good scores isn't badly skewed, but that has always been true in every genre of music. The only reason that classical music seems to be so much better is the fact that we haven't held on to the crap music that was composed back then. Classics are called "classics" for a reason. They are the few instances that have survived out of all the music ever composed, and they did so precisely because they were so much better than all the crap surrounding them.

    You are joking, right?

    "Then use IE"? So you'd rather do both?

    The Bear McCreary Thread

    John Williams' Role Model

    Hans Zimmer.
  8. I don't think any of us purpose to only enjoy one score from a given composer.
  9. And Species, Hellraiser II, The Fly II, The Grudge 2, and The Uninvited. Sure, they're all horror/sci-fi films, but Young's exceptionally talented in the horror genre. While we're at it. Untraceable is quite a good score as well.
  10. Funny, that's one of the few Kamen scores I don't enjoy. Try Dark City. Agreed. And I'll add the following (note that some of these may possibly be because I have not heard enough else from the composers yet): Nick Glennie-Smith, We Were Soldiers Mark Mancina, Twister Carlo Siliotto, The Punisher Aaron Zigman, The Bridge to Terabithia Can trilogies count as one score? If so, Don Davis, The Matrix Howard Shore, The Lord of the Rings *ducks*

    Rest in peace Michael Gough, 94

    For a brief second there, I thought the thread title read "Rest in peace Michael Giacchino."

    Famous Objects From Classic Movies

    I got 69/53. Some were instantly recognizable. Others I had never even heard of but figured out purely by playing hangman well. That was actually one of the few that I knew instantly without a doubt what it was.

    Why has film music hit rock bottom?

    Not surprising given an invalid question.
