    Maybe someone in Hollywood will pick this up

    by BannedOnTheRun

    and realize that Danny Elfman doesn't have to score every movie that comes out. "Who's that guy?" "Howard Shore?" "No, the other guy." "Hans Zimmer?" "No, you know the one, the other guy." "Danny Elfman?" "Yeah, get him!"

    Maybe I'm just a heathen...

    by Zarles

    ...but unless the score to a movie is something REALLY dynamic, (early Tim Burton flicks, for example) I barely notice it at all. 98% of film music is basically just filler to my tin ear. Sorry.

    Scorekeeper, youre turning into Herc

    by Col. Tigh-Fighter

    With all the links at the foot of your post. At least its not full of Amazon links like the whore Herc, but your posts are getting too clunky. A little less hubris, please.

    How DARE they nominate John Powell for X3...

    by iamnicksaicnsn

    That was clearly one of the worst parts to a surprisingly ok movie (considering it could have been awful). I mean, Best composer of the year for that piece of shit? It was so in your face and seemingly out of place in every fucking scene.

    They should have a podcast ...

    by chrth

    Don't listen to Col. Tigh-Fighter, links are helpful

    by Proman1984

    It's not like he updates too foten anyway so it's nice ot be able to reference his earlier columns and interviews. They are easy to skip too. And this is a very cool website by the way. Look forward to future updates.

    Do ya'll buy a lot of soundtracks?

    by Zarles

    I can't imagine spending money to buy a soundtrack for a movie like X3. Kill Bill Vol. 1, sure. Corpse Bride, you bet. But The Da Vinci Code? Yawn.

    Cool, Very Cool

    by FilmFiend

    soundtracks worth buying:

    by Amy Chasing

    MirrorMask, Battlestar Galactica (all recent series soundtracks), V for Vendetta, Wallace & Gromit: Curse Of The WereRabbit, A Scanner Darkly, Gedo Senki, Lady In The Water, The Pick Of Destiny, The Fountain, The Queen, The Painted Veil, Pan's Labyrinth - and that's just in the last year or so. Oh, and anything by John Williams, no matter what year it comes from that man is amazing.
