  6. I love that Powell’s 3 HTTYD scores came out at the very beginning, very middle, and [nearly] very end of the decade. Nice consistent presence
  7. I love thinking about this For me a composer dominates if they produce a maximum intersection of quality and quantity. Only have thought about the past 3.1 decades: 1990s: James Horner (Alan Menken and Thomas Newman are runners up) 2000s: James Newton Howard 2010s: Michael Giacchino & Alexandre Desplat 2020s: Trent Reznor And Atticus Ross (obvs this is subject to change XD)
  8. Love the Angela Morley Watership shoutout
  9. The movie and score have masterful qualities for sure, but the whole package doesn’t totally cohere. The movie cares so much about giving the monsters presence, grandeur, and room to inspire awe, which is still gratifying. The anticipation to the final payoff, and the payoff itself, are A+ great. I don’t think it’s problem was ever a lack of monster action, but of shortage of engaging (and enduring 🤣) characters to fill the gaps (although at least they aren’t ‘98 Godzilla cheeseball).
  10. I think that is absolutely the reason Batiste was hired, but isn’t that appropriate for the film [regardless of quality]? It makes sense that they’d want the music of a fictional black pianist to be written and performed by a real one (The audition scene at the start of the film was apparently directly inspired by Batiste’s own experience). Also, I saw a featurette that shows Batiste performing ‘Epiphany’ by Reznor/Ross, since Joe Gardner plays it in the film. The three composers are seen working together on-site. I think that was the only cue all three worked on together. I think only two pieces performed at the Half Note club in the film are preexisting and that’s it.
  11. Love this ballet dearly. The movie was both supremely emotional and frustrating in equal measure for me (that's Kaufman for you) but this ballet and its place in the story is yearn-central, and it made me melt. I kind of wish they'd do a soundtrack release. There's the Tulsey Town jingle, a main title that's a separate recording of the ballet's first half, and while the rest of the cues are pretty subdued/ambient, they all seem to draw from the ballet.
  12. A bit late to the party, but my favorite original scores from the 2020-2021 awards season: TOP EIGHT: 1. I'm Thinking Of Ending Things - Jay Wadley 2. Mank - Trent Reznor And Atticus Ross 3. Wolfwalkers - Bruno Coulais 4. Wendy - Benh Zeitlin And Dan Romer 5. Soul - Trent Reznor And Atticus Ross, Jon Batiste 6. The Call Of The Wild - John Powell 7. Shirley - Tamar-kali 8. The Witches - Alan Silvestri HONORABLE MENTIONS: - Bad Hair - Kris Bowers - The Assistant - Tamar-kali - Tenet - Ludwig Goransson - Da 5 Bloods - Terence Blanchard MOST ANTICIPATED LISTENS/WATCHES - Minari - Emile Mosseri - Freaky - Bear McCreary - News Of The World - James Newton Howard
