Dunno what you guys are smoking. Both STID and DOTPOTA sound great, clear and unmuffled. Iwataki knows his stuff.


I agree! DOTPOTA, STID, and Toy Story of Terror! all sound noticeably better than Giacchino's Wallin-engineered scores. I never really noticed the effect of Wallin's dryness until I heard how clear STID was.

Anybody else likes it?

I love it. I would dare to say that it's the best-sounding Giacchino score I've heard, or at least one of the best. I definitely hope Giacchino sticks with Iwataki for a long, long time.

He used Giacchino's Land of the Lost as a negative example, but I regularly listen to that and *enjoy* it, while I've tried several times and have never been able to make it through Doyle's Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

And to call Giacchino's track titles a "detriment" to the score is ridiculous, since what the tracks are called have (or should have) no effect on how they sound. That's one of the most annoying (and, sadly, common) complaints about Giacchino's scores I've heard, and it doesn't make sense.

Geoff Zanelli to Score Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales


In Topic: When Hollywood makes 2 similar movies at the same time...

The second one is a Warner Brothers film directed by Andy Serkis opening in 2016, starring Serkis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander, Eddie Marsan and Peter Mullan. I wonder if Serkis will try to get Shore to score it?

 
I know this isn't totally relevant to this thread, but I remembered seeing this a few months ago, and I had wondered if this was maybe a hint that Giacchino would be involved with Serkis's film. (Probably just wishful thinking...)
