  1. I'm not too big a fan of a good deal of John William's dramatic scores.  

    Say what you will about Horner, but I find his dramatic scores superior to that of John Williams.  The Missing, Titanic, Legend of the Fall, Glory, Spitefire Grill....all come to mind.  

    Go ahead shoot me.

    No I'll just laugh.

    -Mark..... :sigh:

    That works too. 8O

  2. He has no music reading/writing skills? That's what I just read...on IMDb. I can't believe I've lived in ignorance of that fact for the past decade.

    That's odd, and also impressive, considering he's put out some great stuff....(Chariots of Fire, Conquest of Paradise [my favorite theme of all time...right there...especially as performed in Summon the Heroes], Bladerunner).

    So I would assume he...improvises the music for film? Anyone know how his approach to scoring goes?

    Discuss!

  3. I don't like Schindler's List...the movie or the soundtrack anymore than I like slitting my own wrists....

    If I want sad and depressing...I want it to have a slight glimmer of hope sprinkled here and there.  

    But then again, I also don't like Hook (besides the prologue and the first few seconds of "The Ultimate War")  and I like the Phantom Meanace, so I'm sure many would find my taste questionable.

    If you want to know the kind of depressive music I do enjoy, go listen to The Russia House.

    im concerned for you.

    As you should be! :)

  5. Schindler's List has never struck a chord with me.... :oops: :cry:

    Schindler's Workforce and I Could Have Done More are the only tracks that have my full attention. The others just seem to meander too much, revelling in their depressiveness...although all have really beautiful moments.

    Angela's Ashes and Seven Years in Tibet on the other hand I really enjoyed...
