  1. Leto looks like Steve Carell and Pacino looks like Will Ferrell.
  2. Does anyone else, like me, find that they don't care about all this trivial stuff relating to the film, and the only thing worth getting excited for is the score? I think it was a different feeling when Star Wars was returning in 2015. Don't get me wrong, I love Indiana Jones.
  3. I'm glad to see the response has been largely unanimous across the board, and I must say I feel disappointed for Whittaker. Bring on Michael Sheen!
  4. I haven't thought about it until this thread was bumped. Can't imagine listening to this score on its own.
  5. @Tom Guernsey The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Up are perhaps some of his least subtle work!
  6. Strange to see the dislike of Desplat. All three are today's finest film composers and all three have hits and misses. I love Powell's lush orchestrations, Giacchino's themes and Desplat's attention to the small details and orchestral sensibilities.
  7. A bit of what feels like a recycled score going on. Zero themes worth a damn, Inception-esque rhythmic action and recycled soundfonts. Quite possibly the worst MCU score. Balfe has done better, but this sounds phoned-in. I wonder what Desplat would've done...
  8. Is it a Sunshine pun?
  9. Our man JW dominates this discogs list of the 25 most collected Disney albums. https://blog.discogs.com/en/most-collected-disney-albums/?utm_source=homepage&utm_medium=discogs&utm_campaign=Culture_2021_06_23
  10. Strong, strong Doctor Who vibes - The Sacred Timeline plot would be a great season-long arc for someone like the Twelfth Doctor.
  11. I couldn't be bothered watching the film in general.
  12. Murray Gold's Doctor Who comes to mind, over ten years of thematic writing. Not all of it was handled brilliantly, especially in post, but there is a nice catalog of themes and motifs to explore.
  13. There's quite a bit of score, but it is a supporting act more than a stand-out feature. I get the impression the score was probably temped with Giacchino music.
  14. The first one can't be a standalone film because of the big Grindelwald plot so heavily woven throughout the film...
  15. Three big contenders for the 2010s - Giacchino, Desplat, and John Powell - whether you like it not, Giacchino was prolific from 2009 onwards, so was Desplat, and Powell had some stand-out scores in that period too. I'd say the post 2010 is still dominated by Zimmerians, with Balfe, Jackman, Pereira and the only reason the three contenders are there above is because they produced music outside of that mould.
  16. I think if any extra-filmic series is to be broached it would be an anime series. Anime isn't a childish thing that it has been unfairly criticized for and I think given the more stylized approach we might see some genuine creative input into this show that something like live-action can't capture without coming off ironically 'cartoony'. I would like to know if Howard Shore might be interested in scoring this project and whether or not he was asked...
  17. I'm pessimistic when it comes to the chances of physical releases lately, but I wouldn't rule them out completely. If these are to come through specialty labels, and other big name scores have been given similar treatments like Harry Potter, why shouldn't we have a slight glimmer of hope that the same will happen for Star Wars, an arguably more beloved franchise?
  18. Superman (Williams) The Incredibles X-Men The Last Stand Batman Spider-Man 2 Spider-Man Homecoming Spider-Man Far From Home Incredibles 2 The Dark Knight
  19. I don't care what this film looks like, only if Williams will be around to score it.
  20. Some rando on the internet has the audacity to trash Shore's greatest scores? No apology will be issued. My words are final.
