Studio boss: We have synth men working on this. Williams: Who? Studio boss: Synth men!

Don't forget the Father & Son theme at the end of KOTCS!

Even I at one point misunderstood the "sound design" stuff.  It might not be easy listening, but it isn't bullshit.  It's probably as interesting if not more to put together and "tinker" with.  I can understand that motivation more than the one behind some of the most sterile Goldsmith writing, applied to shit films.

I find some of the sound design stuff offers neither the effect of no music nor the effect of a real musical punch.

 

Although  I'm incoherent and picky about what I like. I liked the bat-flap sound effect in Batman Begins. I remember liking the sound-effect-like cues in Gravity and disliking the rest of the writing.

Now he just needs to retire from the genre of film music.

 

 

 

You're very unpleasant.  Why is it that all of your recent posts are of this same brand of Zimmer-whining buffoonery?  Don't you have anything worthwhile to say?

 

I implore you to reconsider this attitude of poisonous partisanship.  It's a relic of the past.  I've seen posts of yours from years back with the same needless vitriol.  JWFan has a more evolved sensibility now.

I will think and say as I please. Thank you.

At least you have the sense to not subsequently double-down on the whining when called out for such wallowing.

 

Even if I wanted to hate on Zimmer more (what you call whining and wallowing and what not), it wouldn't occur to me to worry about you one bit.

And you provide a needed service.  Whenever anyone wonders about my seemingly caricatured portrayal of the extreme anti-Zimmerites, I can point and say, "that guy."  It ain't no caricature.

Your need to point this out tells me otherwise.  It would be easy to simply ignore altogether.

Ah you got me. I was just pretending. I deeply care about what you think of me.

It's obvious that you don't like to have your prejudices challenged, or you'd have responded in a manner less reliant on snark.  It's ok to admit it, this is a safe space.

 

TheGreyPilgrim - obviously long overdue for this kind of sparring

What an interesting conversation we are having, as interesting as Zimmer's music. Truly Zimmer brings out the best in us.

Think about it friendo.  "The best" that was brought out initially was your need to chime in with your dislike.  What exactly does that accomplish?  All I did was question that, which is entirely reasonable, so I'm afraid you can't blame any of this on me, nor Zimmer, as comical as that is.

 

I'll give you a real example of how it does bring out the best though.  Last night, Zimmer's Murph suite from Interstellar played on a little set of speakers while my girls enthusiastically learned to use a telescope for the first time.  I'm sure I don't need to explain how lovely that was for all of us!

Right. So I called you "unpleasant" and your posts "whining buffonery", "poisonous" and "needless vitriol" and we proceeded from there. 

 

Is it poetic justice that fans of Zimmer lack articulation, grace and subtlety?

I reserve the right to use whatever language, even bordering on crass, I wish when someone already unlocks the gates for such childishness with calls for someone to end their career.

 

Please, your attempts at superiority only make this more embarrassing for you.

Just look at this.  Can you imagine this being said about Williams?  Would you not be inclined towards indignation upon reading this?  It's truly unpleasant, yes.  Wishing for someone to abandon something they love.  Just filled with needless hate.

 

Is it poetic justice that... no wait, it's just embarrassing for other Williams fans, myself included, that one of their own could engage in such partisan ignorance and hate-speech.

Lol. Why would I? Am I related to Williams? Am I his secretary? Investor in his estate? His son-in-law?

 

I wouldn't even take offense if someone said that about myself even. It's preposterous to thing I would take offense about something said about a public person.

Yeah, for a technician. Not for a musician - no one can sell me such nonsense. The other thing is, you might roll your eyes at, say, 'Along Came A Spider' but a least this stuff had brevity and didn't require '10 Commandments'-sized session tapes. Which begs the question how something so precious can be churned out in salt mine quantities in a relatively short time.

 

But we go in circles, the limitations of working on these suckers have been spelled out often enough by the very people doing them and they sure wouldn't be like this if the musician's had their way. So let Brian Tyler take them all and we lose nothing of great musical importance.

Well in the context of the film, and considering the line was delivered by a man who was still an astronaut at heart it certainly doesnt ring false to me.

 

Doubtlessly TGP will be along soon calling you a fucking moron for not getting the point.

 

TGP can rant all day long about whatever.

 

The part of astronaut at heart is funny. They call him the best, but they didn't look for him at all.
