What film score theme/melody is going through your head right now?

Maleficent is better than anything Horner has composed in the past 10 years.

Mmm no. It's solid scoring, but nothing in it surpasses Horner's best material.

And it does "steal" from him, too. ;)

Nope. May not have been a good time for horner, but his best in that period are still very much above Maleficent.

I was going to say House of Sand and Fog, but then I realized it's been 11 years. How about The Life Before Her Eyes or Black Gold/Day of the Falcon?

Just be content that JNH did something with flair and lots of - for this time and place - refreshing orchestral ideas. Horner has his own brand of pros and cons and there would be sure as hell a lot of shouting if Maleficent's foes would roam around to the dreaded calls of the rotten old danger theme etc.

I'm starting to realize that the more you post the more I disagree with you! :P

Glad to know I'm still not on any ignore lists yet!

I forgive you. ;)

In all fairness, I just realized the last 10 years of Horner's career don't cover the scores I was thinking of, it's a much more dull period. But still, I hold stuff like Legend of Zorro and The New World on higher ground than Malifecent.

KK's ultimate judgement will come when it is revealed which, if any, of the "Composer's Competition" entries were his.

They aren't, sadly. I had something good sketched up, and I was pretty satisfied with it. But due to time limitations, I didn't have time to finish it or start on the mockup. I do plan on expanding on it someday, making it a piece of its own for the future...(if it ever sees the light of day)

KK. is definitely someone I can work with. His views and tastes... make sense. I don't ever find him... inexplicable.

Am I on thin ice? :P

KK has my seal of approval....for the moment!

Thanks Stiff! ;)
