  2. Every single one of Joe Hisaishi's scores to Hayao Miyazaki's films are just terrific. Howl's Moving Castle is no exception

  3. The Village, easily. Don't be too quick to assume everyone here would pick PoA just because it's JW. They're two very different scores.

  5. Not to cross the streams, but when someone asks me why I would possibly want to buy Star Wars AGAIN I reply "Because I want a Star Wars presentation that is as good as Star Trek: The Motion Picture".

  9. King Kong, and I'll vote for JNH a lot for this period as this was a strong time for him.

  10. Finally one I have an answer for. Lady in the Water is my favourite of all JNH scores, so it's the clear winner for me (of those that I've heard) - even including all the other scores listed in the posts above. The Fountain is a very strong contender though.

  11. Oh man none of my favorite scores from 2006 are on your poll at all Casino Royale by David Arnold! Mission Impossible III by Michael Giacchino! X-Men: The Last Stand by John Powell! Inside Man by Terence Blanchard! The Pick of Destiny by Andrew Gross! And a lot of people here like Dead Man's Chest by Hans Zimmer Superman Returns by John Ottman Nanny McPhee by Patrick Doyle V for Vendetta by Dario Marianelli Ice Age 2 by John Powell United 93 by John Powell Night at the Museum by Alan Silvestri

  17. Ratatouille is a fun score, one of the best from Gia's early years. Well deserved Oscar nomination.

  18. Voted The Incredibles - the score so nice Giacchino wrote it twice. Azkaban is the clear winner.

  19. Voted The Holiday based solely on the end credits cue from when I cleaned the theater which I thought was p lovely. Lady in the Water was pretty good too.

  22. Yeah, i was listening to the film and i noticed the drum roll wasn't present. So I was like oh whatever, Kenny probably dialed it out. Then one day i was in the shower listening to the Jurassic Park Theme (End Credits) from TLW's album and around 2:48, the drum roll is there, and i haven't compared the tracks, but I wanna say the rest of that is the same as Tranquillizer Dart and End Credits (film version), as the piano ends and the JP theme begins. The only thing is, there's an extra instrument over the drums, so maybe MM found a way to remove it and attach just the drums to it. It'd be cool if we had some confirmation about it.

  23. From the list, The Happening. As much as I do enjoy KotCS, it's not as consistent quality-wise as the former, and actually, for me JNH's underscore material is way more interestig than JW's. Hancock would also be up there.

  24. My favorite score from 2008 is a surprise choice, WANTED by Danny Elfman. One of the rare gems from the lowest point of his career. It's fantastic from start to end! Other favorite scores from 2008 not on your poll LOST Season 4 by Michael Giacchino Cloverfield by Michael Giacchino Speed Racer by Michael Giacchino Quantum of Solace by David Arnold Ponyo by Joe Hisaishi Hancock by John Powell Bolt by John Powell Horton Hears a Who by John Powell Kung Fu Panda by Powell & Zimmer I've heard great things about Fool's Gold by George Fenton too, keep meaning to check that one out From your poll choices, Indy 4 of course - it's great!

  25. I mean, the best score of 2007 is Chrostpher Young's Spider-man 3 AINEC. Your metrics are baffling Other good 2007 scores not on your list Perfume by Heil/Klimek/Tykwer Stardust by Ilan Eshkeri 3:10 to Yuma by Marco Belatrami Medal of Honor: Airborne by Michael Giacchino LOST Season 3 by Michael Giacchino

  28. As exciting as these clips have been, I'm getting worried over how fragmented it's seeming from the bits that have been posted. Too many starts and stops for the sake of comedic moments. I'm really hoping there's enough long form sequences that can let the score breathe, since it otherwise might end up just being a substance-less pastiche.

  30. Yep, 2000 to about 2006 was an excellent era for JNH fans. We had: The three Disney scores (Dinosaur, Atlantis, Treasure Planet) Unbreakable Signs The Emperor's Club Peter Pan Hidalgo The Village King Kong Lady in the Water Blood Diamond

  33. 2006 was a pretty "meh" year. Some decent scores, but nothing exactly outstanding. Besides the ones in the poll, there was also: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (Zimmer) Cars (Randy Newman) Superman Returns (Ottman) Ice Age 2 (Powell) X-Men: The Last Stand (Powell) Mission: Impossible III (Giacchino) The Omen (Beltrami) Blood Diamond (JNH) Apocalypto (Horner) Pan's Labyrinth (Navarrete)

  35. You know me so well hehe For me it's definitly The Terminal and then I would say The Incredibles Other nice score from 2004 not listed here are Zimmer's King Arthur, Giacchino's first season of Lost and Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby (if you like the classic Eastwood score) and one last but not least suggestion Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

  37. I closed the "Other" option, because I want you to chose among the list options, because everyone here would pick Azkaban, so I want maybe your 2nd choice or 3rd choice! ;-)

  38. Me too! I love aspect ratios, all of them, as long as they completely fill up my screen without any of those ghastly black bars. I especially like the one where everyone is stretched like one of @crumbs funny avatars.

  41. Sense and Sensibility. I shall not endeavour to pen my thoughts about this film in the occasionally stilted language that Jane Austen employs and which did not always come across as genuine… Would you excuse me, I think I shall. Indeed, I must, now that I have found a thesaurus which will hopefully facilitate the task at hand. Dear me, I cannot believe how well this is going. Oh, splendid! Well, the same can be said about the events I have just been so fortunate to witness on the big screen. All the actors are quite accomplished and it was highly amusing to hear Kate Winslet utter the phrase, ‘Do you love him?’ Colonel Brandon does not have the brightest of minds, however, and fails again and again to realise that Marianne has clearly transferred all her affections to Willoughby until the very end of the narrative. That particular plot point is handled rather clumsily (and how did he find their abode of residence in London so easily?) The running time was a revelation too as I had first experienced this tale in bits and pieces during a few days of well-deserved rest in Kent. Back then, it seemed to be at least four hours. I continue to esteem and admire the musical escapades of Patrick Doyle as well, although I feel compelled to point out that the piano Brandon so kindly bestows upon the Dashwoods does not sound like a pianoforte at all and I seem to recall quite clearly that the modern piano had not been invented at that point in time. I say, I am astonished at how fruitful this linguistic experiment has turned out to be! It is, however, a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good computer must hate it when the file he obtained using questionable methods fails to contain the final two minutes of the chronicle.

  42. How the hell have I never noticed this thread before? I love it. I also love all aspect ratios. Personally, my favorite is 2.35:1 but typically I just prefer the Director's intention, whatever that may be. I don't give a damn if it "fills my screen" or not. I hate pan & scan and I also hate when they add the sides back on to something that was framed and intended to be in 4:3. It's interesting to compare, but I would likely never watch the film more than once in an open matte format either vertically (2.35:1 to 16:9 or even 1.33:1) or horizontally (4:3 to 16:9). There we go. I am here now. I am home.

  44. Images Well that was one of the strangest moves I have ever seen in my life. If John Williams hadn't scored this, I doubt I would have ever comes across it. I think it's worth seeing to know the context of the score, but outside of that, it's one of those artsy films that does not tell a cohesive narrative, it's more of an exploration of insanity that isn't interested in ever being clear about what's real and what isn't. I will say it was never boring, so it isn't a 100 minute slog or anything, it moves pretty briskly through its machinations. It's free on Hoopla
