  1. I fail to see how Elfman would be all wrong for Potter. How exactly is Doyle right for it? :roll: The Nimbus 2000 motif will probably be changed slightly to reflect the fact that Harry no longer uses it. It'll probably be updated in regards to him using the Firebolt. Although, it might just be the music that was heard when he rode the broom at the end on POA (i.e. Nimbus 2000). I just hope that the music that'll be used doesn't sound like what I heard from the new trailers. LOL
  2. Some stats on the good General: A twisted melding of flesh and metal, General Grievous' body is a deadly weapon forged by the cutting edge developers of the Confederacy. Grievous' living matter was encased within his precision-engineered artificial body; inside the hardened carapace beat the heart of a remorseless killer. A pressurized gut-sack held his vital organs, while his skull-like mask contained his living eyes and brain. Making the horrific amalgam more unpleasant was a persistent wet, hacking cough coming from his ravaged lungs. Homeworld: Kalee Species: Kaleesh Gender: Male Height
  3. Well Don Davis has to make a living somehow. I think he's got great potential, and I love his Matrix scores. Plus who doesn't like Neodammerung or that Opening Rolling Brass Motif... But he's needs to get off of thy ass and score some music. (Film music that is- to his credit he has been doing some concert pieces). Note to Don Davis: Step away from the Matrix. Love the score- time to move on.
  4. I agree with you there. I really didn't like the first film, so I never really paid much attention to the music from it. I went back and listened to it, but I really didn't get into it. I feel that the revamped Main Titles on Spiderman 2 are kick ass. I gotta say, Elfman can manipulate a choir well. You should check it out.
  5. I want him to score Potter. He should've, but perhaps he wants an Oscar this year, because it seems like the Academy overlooks his scores. Especially when they lose to the likes of "Finding Neverland." But I say, if Williams is done with it, give it to Elfman. Maybe he'll adapt on Williams' themes and add some of that Edward Scissorhands flair to it. Lord knows that usage of the celesta and the way that chorus is structured has plenty of similarites to it. And while they're at it, give the directing to Burton. Burton and Elfman did a great job on Big Fish and that was an adaptation. But I'm s
  6. I like Elfman, but for the first film I felt that the motifs matched the calibur of acting quite well...lol. Honestly, I prefer the second Spiderman score over the first.
  7. Haha. That's harsh. But if they weren't journalism, then why are they # 1? It's because they present both sides. I hope your not making you decision based on Bill O' Reilly or Sean Hannity. They're not journalists, they're commentators who give opinions. So don't get that twisted with journalism. To me Fox News is more represenative of America's diversity of ideologies. They're a lot more moderate that the overwhemely leftist media and it's good to hear a difference in opinion once in a while. Don't you think? Now, about Michael Moore..... To begin I'd like to define what a Documentary is....
  8. I've found some explainations of the Matrix. Let's see if any of these coincide with some of yours. A great majority of this is philosophical explainations of what the movie is supposed to represent. Explaination 1: ***First, let's review some of the obvious Christian symbols that appear in the film. The main character, played by Keanu Reeves, is named Thomas Anderson: the first name Thomas may be an allusion to the Doubting Thomas of the gospels, while etymologically Anderson means "son of man," a title used by Jesus in reference to himself. Another character, Choi, says to him "Hallelujah.
  9. Although the presence of Christian themes is strong in The Matrix, the influence of Buddhism is equally powerful and evident. Indeed, the basic philosophical premises that drive major plot points would be nearly incomprehensible without a little background understanding of Buddhism and Buddhist doctrines. Does this force the conclusion that The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded are Buddhist movies? The most obvious and fundamental Buddhist theme can be found in the basic principle that, in the world of the Matrix films, what most people think of as "reality" is actually a computer-generated simu
  10. Here's another approach to explaining the Matrix: Perhaps the idea that The Matrix is basically a Christian film stretches things a bit too far, but there are arguments that The Matrix has a stronger basis in Gnosticism and Gnostic Christianity. Gnosticism shares many basic ideas with orthodox Christianity, but there are also important differences between the two that make Gnosticism closer to the principles expressed in these films. In his conversation with Neo near the end of The Matrix Reloaded, the Architect explains that he is responsible for the creation of the Matrix - does that make h
  11. I've found a more philosophical point of view to the Matrix that may clear up some confusion about the films: ***First, let's review some of the obvious Christian symbols that appear in the film. The main character, played by Keanu Reeves, is named Thomas Anderson: the first name Thomas may be an allusion to the Doubting Thomas of the gospels, while etymologically Anderson means "son of man," a title used by Jesus in reference to himself. Another character, Choi, says to him "Hallelujah. You're my savior, man. My own personal Jesus Christ." A plate in Morpheus's ship Nebuchadnezzar bears the
  12. Me either. Why King Kong of all movie remakes too? And Jack Black, sure he's funny, but I don't think Jackson wants this movie taken too seriously with him in it. But, I'm sure I can expect a good laugh or two from Black.
  13. I wish! I hope that Bruckheimer has a change of heart on the next POC and gives the role of composer to Silvestri. I'm tired of hearing artifical "engineered" scores. How about the actual use of an orchestra for a change?! Now there's a thought!
  14. Oh, of course he would work out fine. In fact some of his material from Sleepy Hollow, Red Dragon or Edward Scissorhands might have worked fine in HP. I guess the true test of whether or not he'd make the perfect replacement is when he does Willy Wonka. Or if we're talking adapting themes and motifs, give the job to Don Davis. He did a great job on JP3, and this will give him a chance to expand his scope. With Will Ross, you pretty much know what you getting, which may be a good or Bad thing. And since we're talking about replacements, if I were to also choose the next director, I'd choose Bur
  15. Favorites: Japanese Animation, Animated, CG, Black and White, Documentaries, Action/Adventure, Drama, Psychological Thrillers. I love the way Tim Burton Directs; his innocent/sadistic film style is always great. The same goes for Spielburg, Hitchcock, Gibson... Least Favorite: Anything Michael Moore's put out... Horror films with no plot and weak cinematography (see Jeepers Creepers 2)
