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.

well my words is made of fire time to burn

 

 

Among all the things I have done in my short and pitiful life, becoming an inside joke on JWFAN is the one I'm the least proud of.

The additional passage was interesting but not really something I would consider absolutely essential.

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

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...

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. :)

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.

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.
