I'm getting tired of these 'clever' track titles. Christopher Young does this kind of thing wonderfully (especially with Species and The Core), but Giacchino just tries too hard.

I agree, it gets annoying after awhile, however this method DOES decrease the chance of getting spoiled by the tracktitle.

Actually, he and his music editor just have fun coming up with the titles. The only effort is to have fun I suspect.

What about Williams?

"Keeping Up With the Joneses"?

I imagine most of the titles are pretty much spontaneous.

They cant. They sound like the search for the jokes.

Some are very far-fetched...

Can we find ourselves some real problems, people? Fucking track titles? Seriously?

Sounds like a work of a much more confident composer than 5 years ago. A bit more eclectic and ethnic than the previous one, but that's what Schifrin's music was all about. It's a buy.

Oh, I LIKE this. It's a definite buy. Much more tonal the M:I III, lots of variety for a globetrotting story.

Sounds to me almost like Mission: Impossible with a dose of The Incredibles. :)

I got to hear Mood India and Mumbai's the Word being recorded and they're both pretty fantastic, definitely my favorite cues from the day I was there.

Hi All

Check out a new audio podcast of "On the Score," as composer MICHAEL GIACCHINO gives an extensive and enthusiastic talk that covers his scoring adventures from MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL, then continues to burn the fuse with CARS 2, MONTE CARLO, 50/50 and SUPER 8, ending with his look at the Oscar nomination game!

http://www.filmmusicmag.com/?p=8910

It's a wide-ranging, incisive interview that takes another year of On the Score out with a bang. Thanks for listening, and tune in next year to listen to Hollywood's top composers at Filmmusicmag.com, and with music excerpts at XM / Sirius' Cinemagic, online at Channel 806.

No, but the reviews are very encouraging. I'll see it when it comes out here. Which is on Boxing Day, I think.

The score makes it feel like a much better movie, fun.

Which one does it resemble in style, or is it completely different from the first 3 movies?

It's way more of a fun adventure movie and not really as intense as 1 or 3.

Ebert gave it 3.5 stars

Why this guy is so important? Most of the time he just describes what happens in any given movie. There's nothing interesting in his reviews.

It's better than M:I 2.

Did you like MI:2?

Almost every movie I've seen is better than MI2

Best of the series so far IMO.
