    Ollie reacted to Marian Schedenig in 1982 was a hell of a year for film scores - Discuss!   
    The lullaby, nice as it is, is probably the most (and only) "perfunctory" bit of the score. Stuff like Twisted Abduction is prime Goldsmith, and the way it supports the film (when it's not cut to pieces or simply dialled - or even in those parts, if you have the music memorised) is up there with any of the very best scores (and better than most of them).

    E.T, Conan and Poltergeist would be my picks.  They are among the very top favourites for each composer. Blade Runner is an absolute classic too. Star Trek II is great fun, but I think Horner did a lot more with that idiom in Krull.
     
    Night Crossing is my top pick for underrated score. What an incredible output Goldsmith had this year

    I had passed on this the first go around but I may grab it. The samples sounded much better than I anticipated.

    I was only familiar with the original Ifukube score and the American scores, but I've just discovered this and it's crazy cool:

    Holkenborg's score is better than I expect, not the best in this series, but better than many non Ifukube Showa Godzilla score.
     
    The best Godzilla score to me is King of Monster.
    All Ifukube's works are great.
    The Michiru's works are very close the Ifukube's traditional sound too.
     Shin Godzilla is in fact typical Shirou Sagisu style. I think his new Evangelion movies score is better.
    Kow Otani's score has very cool variation of Ifukube's theme, his Garmera's score is worth listen to as well.

    I’ve come to conclusion Godzilla fans have no clue as to want they want. 

    They want a serious film, you give it to them, they want more monster action, you give it to them. But they are never happy. 
     
    Truthfully, there’s only two films in the entire series that hold up and that’s the original 1954 film and Shin Godzilla. Why? Because they actually have an important message and they mean something to Japan. 
     
    There are a few quality films sprinkled in thru out the entire series but nothing has come close to the original.
     
    The Legendary series has the Toho films best in terms of acting, plot, direction and visuals. The story lines are no more sillier or boring compared to what we got from Toho. 
     
    The Showa era kept the films streamlined, the Heisei era tried to stay true to the original but often had bloated story lines with way too many characters.
     
    The Millennium era was a mixed bag, GMK felt like it was outside of the Toho box, which was good and the Mecha G films had an interesting premise. 
     
    The lless said about Final Wars, the better.
     
    The 2014 film could have done better by not killing Cranston off early but it was welcomed effort that took its time to tell a story. Which was greatly appreciated.
     
    KOTM was okay it the problem was everything happened with no true buildup or suspense, the monster scenes were great and I had no problem with human interaction. I wish Charles Dance’s character was a bit more fleshed and I would have scrapped 3-4 characters from Monarch out of the film. 
     
    As for KvsG, it looks entertaining and the human interaction looks to be normal to me.
     
    Much like the Toho films, the series as moved more from reality to fantasy. 
     
    Maybe after 30+ films it’s time for the big guy to retire. There’s only so many stories you can tell about big monster fights and worldwide destruction.
