  1. Yep, it's nicely done, I'll agree to that. It's especially cool to see the chopper - and then maybe just directly continue watching the 1982 movie!
  2. Some great music by young and promising Slovenian composer Rok Golob. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhjRrehxA-8
  3. The Thing, last year's prequel by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. Being a huge fan of Carpenter's 1982 classic, a lot could be said here but I must admit I wasn't very disappointed. A lot of things could have been done better or at least different, but on the other hand, there is a lot of originality and inventiveness. Thus the general impression is good as it seemed to me that the whole team, cast and crew, tried to do their best and in their own way pay tribute to Carpenter's version. Even Morricone is quoted at the beginning and the end, I liked the way this "bookends" the movie. The actors are great, especially the Norwegian team and Ulrich Thomsen (Davidov from TWINE). All in all, a perfectly OK horror flick although the Carpenter version of course remains far superior to this movie.
  4. James Newton Howard - Alive I love JNH's melodic, sweeping moments. I think he does it really well in many of his works (e.g. Wyatt Earp).
  5. +1! Does anybody know when is the Skyfall soundtrack supposed to come out? I checked on the Amazon but it's not even up yet, let alone the date ...
  6. Which Varese? None of her three Final Destination scores has ever been released! Or do you mean the Memoirs?
  7. Truer words were never spoken! I love this soundtrack! Concerning her Final Destination scores, I'd love to see them released someday, they are very good and I'd very much like to add them to my collection!
  8. He finds long distance travelling too uncomfortable. So this has actually been officially announced (by JW or his agent)? Must've missed it ...
  9. My question would be why did he suddenly stop conducting film music concerts with LSO years ago, and apparently won't do it again ...
  10. What's this? Someone on the board that doesn't trash Serra's score? Outstanding! I like it too! I very much agree with what Miles wrote. The Goldeneye Overture is indeed awesome, and I quite often pop in this soundtrack just for this very track!
  11. Top 3: 1. Williams 2. Goldsmith 3. Horner Followed by: - Shore - Silvestri - Elfman - Barry - Conti - Jones - Arnold - and more
  12. - The Last Unicorn - This Is Halloween - Jack's Lament - Up There and - Mountain Town (both from South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut) Can't think of more right now.
  13. Is that so? I must admit I've never made the connection myself. Another thing: those of you who own the X-Files box, what do you think of it? Not long ago when it was announced only 50 or so copies were left I just couldn't resist ordering it.
  14. Several cues of The Thing were actually co-written by Carpenter and Alan Howarth. The scene with dog and chopper is Morricone, it's the best known music (the heartbeat motif) from the film and has also been used in last year's prequel. However, e.g. the very beginning - the opening in which the alien ship flies towards the Earth and the movie title is burned on the screen - is Carpenter/Howarth. But otherwise thank God that on this one, Carpenter was wise enough to hire a composer, that this composer was Morricone and that we can consequently enjoy what is IMHO his greatest masterpiece.
  15. Thank you, Joe! I'm listening to it as I type and it does sound great! Seems Toshimatsu really loved birds, I know his Fuzzy Bird Sonata for alto sax and piano, also a brilliant piece.
  16. I definitely want it too, I've said it before and I'm saying it again! That series has got some very original and high quality music by Edelman, McCarthy and Harrison so I really hope someday one label or the other remembers all this and makes us Angus fans very happy!
  17. Too bad he didn't pick Williams to score World Trade Center.
  18. I voted for Donner. The masterpiece they pulled off together (accompanied by one of the greatest JW scores) leaves a LOT to be desired in terms of possible future mutual efforts.
