I have just called LLL. They immediately stopped production of HARRY POTTER and the prequels complete edition. So there.

Different director, different characters, different composer... no reason to use any of ROTPOTA's themes IMHO. I think Giacchino would be more likely to reference Goldsmith's score than Doyle's...

I need to listen to Land Of the Lost again. Only listened to the CD once, and have never seen the film. The film's bad, right?

I did not like Rise of The Planet of the Apes, no. It was stupid.

Better films released in 2011 include Rango, Sucker Punch, Source Code, Hanna, Thor, Midnight In Paris, X-Men First Class, Super 8, Harry Potter 8, Captain America, Crazy Stupid Love, Our Idiot Brother, Contagion, Hugo, MI4, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Tintin, and War Horse.

Surprised you don't think Tree of Life is the best film of that summer.

Giacchino's a smart cookie. I think he'll reference some of Patrick Doyle's material in the score... but who knows?

There may be a reference to Doyle's score, but there's no way he won't reference Goldsmith. Giacchino loves referencing previous scores for franchises and it would be great to hear that kind of music developing in this world.

Also, Gia likes to bring in Emil Richards - who was responsible for some of the weird sounds in the original POTA (i.e. angklungs, stainless steel mixing bowls, cuica, log drums, boo bams, lujons, and death knell).
