    I also think the expanded album flows much better.

    bruce marshall reacted to TheUlyssesian in Michael Giacchino's THE BATMAN (2022)   
    Holy shit! This comment made me go back and read the first few posts of this thread. And I came across my own post and realized how prescient I was! 
     
    This is what I had written - 
     
     
    And holy shitballs, would you know it - Krennick's theme incidentally steals the Imperial March.
     
    Hear below - 
     
     
    That folks 47 seconds in is literally his Batman theme.
     
    One or more of these things is true - 
     
    1. I can see into the future
    2. Gia reads these boards
    3. Gia is that predictable

    bruce marshall reacted to artguy360 in Princess Mononoke rescoring project   
    Interesting topic. Good luck with this project. I think Princess Mononoke is one of the few perfect film scores in cinema history. I love Ashitaka's theme, the Mononoke theme, and the music for the iron works.

    The Italian Job
     
    I hadn't seen this movie since it was in theaters almost 20 years ago, and didn't remember anything about it.  Turns out its a charming and zippy little heist / caper movie with a great cast - Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron, Edward Norton, Donal Sutherland, Jason Statham, Seth Green, and Mos Def, who were all very good.
     
    The big bummer is that only the opening 15 minutes or so take place in Italy; After a quick scene in Philadelphia, the entire rest of the movie takes place in LA, which was kind of a let-down.  But it was fun.  Nothing special or super spectacular, but an enjoyable popcorn flick I'll forget all the details of before too long again, and that's fine!

    The score by John Powell was great!  Like Paycheck, I can't believe I haven't been listening to it all this time.  I will have to immediately rectify this.
     
    It's on HBO Max

    bruce marshall got a reaction from GerateWohl in 2021 JWFan Composition Competition: Poll   
    Disco Stu only does downloads
     
    I voted for GWohl last year and am inclined to do so again( I've had problems listening to two pieces and want to give them  a fair listen before deciding).
    It reminds me of those '
    " switched- on" performances by Wendy Carlos of Bach and Purcell on Moog Synthesizer.
    I'm a sucker for good contrapuntual writing!

    bruce marshall got a reaction from Bayesian in Horner vs. Silvestri poll   
    With Silvestri, you know what you're going to get: a Silvestri score.
    With Horner, you never know WHO  you will get: Horner Goldsmith, Prokoviev, Britten...😉
     
    Love ' em both!😍

    LAYER CAKE
     
    Very entertaining film that became too convoluted at the end.
    However, when I rewatched it the confusion was cleared.up.
    Hard to catch on to all the characters and plot twists the.first.time

    bruce marshall reacted to Arpy in Death of the Compact Disc   
    Vinyl is more inefficient - more upkeep and is essentially damaged with every play. I understand the convenience which comes with a digital release, but I'm very much of the mind that you don't have the same sense of ownership as you would a physical album (CD, Cassette, Vinyl etc.). For many people that's important.
     
    I think services like Spotify have seriously damaged the experience of listening to albums, and listening to score albums where the music represents a narrative.

    bruce marshall reacted to Thor in Jurassic World: Dominion (Colin Trevorrow 2022)   
    The prologue came at a very convenient time as I had just (literally yesterday) finished rewatching all movies in sequence. My low opinion of Trevorrow and Giacchino stands, and my lukewarm connection to the whole WORLD reboot, but I kinda liked the 65 million years in the past bit. The last bit connotes more THE LOST WORLD to me, and if the upcoming film is all just an extended "San Diego sequence", GODZILLA-style, I will be disappointed. I liked it more when it was just in the jungle.
     
    (For the record, I absolutely adore THE LOST WORLD, but the San Diego bit presented just enough GODZILLA-isms to be tantalizing; I wouldn't want a whole film like that in the JP universe -- then I'd rather watch any of the recent GODZILLA films again).

    bruce marshall reacted to Romão in FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (1964) vs. GLADIATOR (2000) - which is the better film / score?   
    I don't really think that's the case at all with the lion king. The score hardly relies or references the song material
     And there are some very accomplished themes in that score

    Horner’s so good, he can make a superhero score that’s enjoyable to listen to for even someone as otherwise aggressively indifferent to superheroes as I am.
