 By:   FabioS   (Member) conversation with Quincy Jones has two questions about film music.

Are you as down on the state of film scoring as you are on pop?
It’s not good. Everybody’s lazy. Alexandre Desplat — he’s good. He’s my brother. He was influenced by my scores.

Again, when you say film composers are lazy, what does that mean, exactly, in this context?
It means they’re not going back and listening to what Bernard Herrmann did.

Link for the full interview.

They're two of the very best, Jones and Desplat. (Zimmer...lazy.)

That's what I call an enjoyable Q&A. Says what he thinks about The Beatles, Jackson, U2, The Mafia and Kennedy, Ivanka Trump. What a guy!
