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.

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.

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...

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

"In Russia, Phone Dials You" is the best one yet :lol:
"Close Encounters to me is as good a piece of concert music as the 20th century has produced. Everybody fixates on... the Superman fanfare, or Star Wars - Main Theme, or the Raiders March. It's what happens after that, it's not the big popular hook where you go: 'My God John Williams is a genius.' Y'know it's the stuff which is maybe less hooky and less hummable, but is great art." - Hans Zimmer

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. :)

It's a different score to M:I III and I like that.

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?

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.
