@Lokutus...."Marvel garbage"?? Really? The film's not even been finished yet and you already know it's garbage, eh? >frown


Since all of the previous are, then it's safe to assume that no matter who directs it or scores it, the final product will be another crappy piece of shit by the formula.
Not even Branagh, Portman, Hopkins and Doyle made the previous film watchable.



you forgot the words..."in my opinion" and "watchable for ME". Fortunately millions of others disagree.

Portman for Thor 2 is like trying to get Randy Newman to score Air Force One.


It ain't gonna work, except for a couple bars.


Based on "The Man Who Loves Cat Dancing", "Cinderella Liberty", "Daddy's Gone A-Hunting", and "Earthquake", who'd have hired John Williams to score "Star Wars". That's crazy talk! Pft. That's like hiring that Silvestri guy who scored "CHiPs" and "Starsky and Hutch" to do "Back to the Future"! LOL.




Williams had decades in jazz and classical and was well-versed in the symphonic language well before Star Wars was a gleam in George Lucas' little brain.

pre-Star Wars we have what...The Reivers? Jaws? Images? Concerti for Flute, and Violin, The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno.


=p


Which doesn't translate in the ability to pull off a full major score for what was a big thing at the time. It was a chance. He just pulled it off.

So, are we saying Portman couldn't? Okay, I already listed three scores, like you listed scores. She's writen a children's opera, a "dramatic choral symphony", and she is also classically trained.

But Heaven forbid, what ever variation on ooposing creditials given hereafter, one was given a chanceto spread their wings. We cannot have that in film!


Do you even know what you're saying in response to JJH here? I'm not sure that you do.

100%. You don't want a demeaning route and me to spell it out in baby words, right? I mean, one accidenalt added letter and two words connected, both easily seen, doesn't change what I wrote. Come on, people.

My guess is Ramin Djawadi, who worked with Alan Taylor on Game of Thrones, which had pretty good music. And his Red Dawn score is a very good surprise too.

Considering you're misrepresenting some of the scores JJH listed, I don't think you do.

For a movie like this, I really think that Portman would be in over her head.

Why?

She has been scoring films for just as long Doyle and Goldenthal


Longer, in fact (she started screen scoring as a career several years before either).

Ha, now Goldenthal is listed as composer for Kenneth Branagh's Jack Ryan reboot on Wikipedia. Someone keeps mixing them up.

The PR people on Elliot's facebook page never responded to my question about Goldenthal's score assignment. I have no idea how to interpret that -- that it's just a false rumour or that it's some truth to it.

As you say, I think there's some serious mix-up going on. Especially since Elliot told me he doesn't want to do those kinds of scores anymore.

Well, I've shot off a question to somebody asking. I'll try somebody else if this doesn't work. They both work with him, so maybe somebody knows.

I didn't ask about "Jack Ryan".

It is so funny to watch how people get defensive when someone says they wish Doyle's score for Thor was written in a different style. Did Doyle write a solid theme for Thor? Sure. Did Silvestri write a solid theme for The Avengers? Sure. Could they have been more grand or majestic if they were for the same film in the hands of a different studio? I think so.

The more simplistic style of epic-sounding score is a product of the modern sensibilities of producers and directors. I don't blame Patrick Doyle for listening to what the producers requested. If he had written it differently, it would probably have been rejected and replaced with someone else.

Goldsmith-Rulez - while I agree with your general sentiment, I don't think the type of score you want to see from Marvel is ever going to happen. Silvestri felt he needed to shy away from more traditional long statements of the themes he wrote for Captain America, instead using shorter motifs to represent his ideas. Though many of us would delight in seeing these films being scored in a more traditional way, that isn't going to happen.

Khan - Can't you recognize that certain posters here with a more developed appreciation for classical music are interested in a more complex style of orchestral music in films? Bashing individual composers is sadly how many posters react to hearing that a score isn't the style they want to hear. Anyone who says that Thor is Doyle's worst score would prefer to hear something more akin to his classical works for Frankenstein or Henry V. Do they fit with the style of movie we got with Thor? Not really. But that doesn't stop us from dreaming.

They should give Penka Kouneva a crack at this. She could knock it out of the stratosphere.



Wow.

A Warrior`s Odyssey. Okay. Looking for this. Brilliant stuff - sounds like a break-out kind of score. Quite distinct in style too.

Someone had a negative perspective on Patrick Doyle... really?? Heard Needful Things?

Looks like Carter Burwell got the job if this poster is to be believed:

That doesn't sound good even as a joke.
but who cares? It's just Marvel at least more money left for Intrada, LLL, Varese, MSM, Music Box, Quartet and others...

Holy crap. I hadn't even considered him but I can't wait to hear what he brings to the table. Amazing.

Meh.

I was hoping for Patrick Doyle to return.

An amazing left-field choice! Burwell is one of my favourite composers and I'm really thrilled at the prospect of him trying something this different! Perhaps we'll get a hint of what his Serenity score would have sounded like.

Having said all this I'm not getting my hopes up too high, I can certainly see him getting replaced.

Didn't see this one coming! Very excited about this, Burwell is one of my favorite composers. But it wouldn't surprise if he's replaced at the last moment.
