  1. Underrated as per this thread, I simply used to refer to things which don't ever get commented on or noticed, excellent music but which hasn't (as far as you know) received any discussion. So this thread really is not too complicated, I want to simply focus on sharing new examples. It doesn't have to be too underrated. Let's just keep it interesting! This following example might not be as interesting though, it's more of an example of what I'm looking for: It includes one of my favorite little moments I never hear being discussed by people, the kind of sound and emotio
  2. If you're competing with everyone who took his class, it's going to be difficult. There'll only be a 20% shot at an oscar.
  3. That's the discount price one, along with Hans Zimmer Teaches Acting - MasterClass. $40 package for both. https://www.masterclass.com/classes/kevin-spacey-teaches-acting Dude, they should make a TV series where Kevin Spacey is a film director like this, just teaching all his wisdom, but with a good plot. Or instead of a good plot, just Kevin Spacey.
  4. My overall point hinges on that things will always change and evolve, and we have to let it. What I'm hinting at is that, things can either evolve with more-or-less intelligent guidance and creative mind, or with tolerance in just letting it spiral down into whatever primitive form it wants to take (much like film music that doesn't do anything really new but yet we treat it like it is brand new, more evolved and improved. (When it's actually being sat out for the garbage man to take next week and the producers have it all planned--this is just my theory though .)) Somehow we fool ourselves wi
  5. Sure, though precisely what you say there is what I'm talking about. A shift in the role of X, Y and Z is determined by the audience's tolerance of this shift, else they be designed by production more thoughtfully and desirably to meet the change in expectation. Designed in another way. Evolution only creates what works, it doesn't create what works best. This scientific rule has only been at the forefront of film since its existence, its competitive evolution, and if you're okay with how the industry is shifting and what roles are being sacrificed, that's fine. It's your elasticity. But there
  6. Imo, things will no longer be just "as good as it gets nowadays" if only we not praise underservingly things as more than they are. We feel like we have to be thankful for new movies and media because we don't want them to stop making things. But that's a false concept. Nobody is going to stop making things, they're either going to get more competitive if we be honest with what we see and have seen before, or just push out what everyone's simply going to lie down and tolerate. We have this incessant need to like and appreciate everything that comes out new more than it should be, and not admit
  7. Okay, is it really necessary to make that a meme just because I voiced my opinion? It's better that Abe sends that letter to the music industry in general, with all its sweet beats. I understand a lot of people are going to like these pop styles even rehashed into orchestra; you get a simple arpeggiated theme, some orchestral sound fx, and put it to a niche production and sure, it will garner more attention than any incidental classic score. Also, looks like the score's getting pretty mixed reviews as well from other people on review sites, not something we see nearly as much from
  8. Score seems pretty average, but alas, a lot of these popular movie scores are. I always wonder how far fundamental harmonies like these can get you without weaving together subtle ornamentations and dynamics of a more diverse and refined palate, or simply more fascinating melodic progressions. And barring musicality, something more-to-the-point in understatedness. Actually, I don't think banking on harmony and vigor alone can get you anywhere musically, unless you're the first church of hollywood.
  9. I'm really curious to hear some of your opinions on "What the most underrated score moments in movie scenes" are. Feel free to get technical and specific if you want. Or, just casually post something, a simple example is whatever works best for you. Some references for the term "underrated" might include: "How has no one ever commented on the genius of this musical moment?! I think it nails the interpretation of this scene." "So subtle yet profound. This choice in music was very appropriate. It really delivered to the subconscious its intended effect."
  10. In the same way that a soundtrack can be viewed as better simply because it was in a good film or TV show, for instance, Twin Peaks music is not really that great but it stirs a lot of commotion due to the interesting context people attribute the music with, I think people attach extra meaning and context onto movies based on ie. friends, memories, what social reps say, "trends," for example: when can we ever say a certain era had the best music and clothes, as it may have had the worst style and sound of any era, and we look back on it to say what was I doing, but alas. Everyone went along wi
  11. It doesn't have to be your favorite score, it's definitely a niche piece. I just want to give people the chance to be good, I'm want to give them a chance at salvation.
  12. I also recall JW using the words Cowboy and Bebop. It's likely frequently on his mind.
  13. I genuinely feel that whoever doesn't think The Time Machine (2002) is one of the best scores of all time is a bad person.
  14. This ravishing essembly of strings that wildly ascends to the main theme, as well as the epic piano sound right before that which resembles the orchestra being "dropped," boldly reminding me of an echoey canyon. 2:00
