    I'm gonna hum Hedwig's Theme every time I think of JK Rowling, just to spite her

    JKR find that JW's music was not enough "binary".

    While I applaud his honesty, and his willingness to apologise for mistakes, I do question his apparent need to do it in the public domain.
    Wouldn't this sort of thing be best handled in private?

    Well, Horner was also to a large degree a pastiche composer, so in that regard Franglen's learned from one of the best.

    Yes. I think, with Avatar Horner didn't set the bar very high.
    Joel McNeely, James Newton Howard, Alan Silvestri, Harry Gregson-Williams, John Debney, Christophe Beck, Patrick Doyle, Chris Young and many others. They all could do it , I believe.
     
    If you would ask me for a wish candidate. I would like to have scores from Howard Shore for the sequels.

    Wow. I consider it a top 3 Horner. I also consider the film the very best that year, and already a reference point in terms of how we experience cinema. So the bar couldn't possibly be any higher for any composer.
     
    As I said, I don't like the fact that Franglen is attached to this at all. His stuff sounds like Horner with all the soul ripped out of it - whether it's MAG 7, the Avatar theme park stuff, VOYAGE OF TIME and whatnot. But God knows he's worked with a lot of great composers, and a lot of great scores over the years (as programmer, performer etc.). So I hope he's picked up some useful tricks. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

    Horner's Avatar is great and I think the only one who could have beaten this would be Williams. It would have been a premier for him to score a sequel, it could have resulted in an interesting compositions, quite unique.
    My second choice would have been Silvestri, McNeely or even Gia who no matter what would have bring the attended colour and sound to this sequel
     
    Anyway we'll see how it will end...

    Talking about the movie. Score wasn't much good, either, but who expects for Cameron, anyway?

    I get the feeling this film will be temp-tracked to within an inch of its life. I don't envy any composer working with Cameron.

    The score of the first film sounded like it was temp-tracked with "The Lion King" which I found highly inappropriate.
    I have no expectations for the sequel scores at all.

    Probably just shouldn’t have made the movie at all, imo.

    I wish the TV series got rid of the villainesque teacher from the original movie. I don't think he adds anything, more the opposite. It's the reason why Season one was good. He wasn't in it.

    Eastern Promises is good, but for me it was never on the same level as the brilliant A History of Violence. The final scene of that on its own is better than some entire films.

    Utilised Spotify to catch up on all JW OSTs it has that I haven't heard yet.
     
    Cinderella Liberty - Groovy enough, good enough theme (that I expected to go into the Sugarland theme when on harmonica), not a fan of the vocal performances. Not bad but didn't feel it had much substance.
    Jaws 2 - already heard the expansion but the thread has traffic, why not. Still don't like it, feels like JW just knocking himself off, all those kinda interesting moments interrupted with a blurting unsubtle loud DUNDUNDUNDUN Shark A without any finesse or interesting embellishments, none of the buildup of the first... not for me.
    Heartbeeps - I was shocked to like this as much as I did. Even bought it on presto afterwards. Cheesy but cute and very very JW-ey once you adjust to the synth's prominence. Only somewhat lost me in the second half in the stretch where the two main themes are mostly abandoned.
    The Witches of Eastwick - Liked this one too. Good varied string use, overall pretty Elfmany - even if the Elfmanyness we know mostly came after this one!
    The Accidental Tourist - Liked this one too! Alwaysy but less sugary and with even less of a thematic/narrative arc, but it did manage to keep my attention and I liked its sound.
    Stepmom - This one on the other hand did not manage to keep my attention.
