  1. Powell for me. He is like a perfect mix of my other 2 faves composers: JW and Zimmer. Powell match the orchestral might of JW with the "modern' sound of Zimmer. Add excellent themes and you have in my opinion the best active film composer.
  2. I dont mind inconsistency since most of the time it is due to director's meddling with the composer's vision. I only want the themes of a score to be numerous and used in a multitude of arrangements.
  3. Thank you, I will give it a try especially since I loved the show. Any other score for a film as thematical as HTTYD/SW/LOTR?
  4. Once There Were Dragons was the highlight of that year me. The way Powell uses old and new themes successively is nothing short of masterful. I think each of these scores build on the previous one in quality, complexity and maturity. Diving into such great scores from Powell, it is really hard to get back to other light thematic scores from much less talented composers.
  5. Unfortunately I have tried many times to get into Gia music especially since his output is so numerous (Jupiter Ascending, Tomorrowland, John Carter). But I just dont like his themes, orchestrations and very dry sound mix.

Themes are stated constantly and in a multitude of different arrangements. Other than LOTR and Star Wars I cannot find other scores that can compete with what Powell have achieved. Can someone recommend me scores that are as complex thematically as this? Thanks in advance.
