I got the CD recently and noticed that on my copy track 18 is called "Ceasar Says No" while on the Varèse Sarabande and other sits the track is called "Ceasar's Stand". Did anyone notice this?

What the hell did Doyle smoke for the video? I've Got a Cookie for You! big grin big grin

And is that Philip Glass in the chorus?

This is one those"coulda-been great" films for me.
I enjoyed it tremendously but....
There is a real laziness in the writing especially the characters.
Freida pinto is a totally unneccary character. She seems to be there just 'cause she is so pretty.
ALL the supporting characters are one -dimensional archetypes:
- the greedy cproporate boss
- the sadistic game keeper
etc
James Franco brought a lot of humanity to the role and the Serkis/Casaer work is great.
What really made the film for me was the spectacular conclusion on the GG Bridge.
b+ for the film
b- for the score

I thought the movie was leagues beyond any other blockbuster I saw this year.

Just recently got through this score. Boy, did Doyle knock another one out of the park. The album's first highlight in my opinion is 'Muir Woods', followed by 'Off You Go' and 'Who Am I?' But the last half of the CD is phenomenal. Judging from the film, I really thought this would be just a 'meh' type of score, but as a simple listening experience, it's incredible. Highly recommended.

smile It is a great film with a wonderful score... Patrick Doyle did a great job. I do hope he returns for the sequel (re-uniting many of the original creative team)...

Doyle said in an interview with filmmusicmag that he had a meeting soon about Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. A quick glance shows that section has been removed from the interview, hmm.

I loved the film and the score for the first and cannot wait for Dawn. I know everyone cried about how the 'old Doyle' was lost last summer but I loved both Thor and Apes. I also can't wait to hear Doyle's Jack Ryan score next Christmas.

I think DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is going to be a very different movie than RISE, a much darker film. As to whether Doyle should return.... why not? I think he's as good as anyone else out there.

I'm glad that Doyle can have the chance of make a trilogy. Eragon was a failure, he'll not be chosen for Thor 2 since that Branagh is not directing it and he scored Goblet Of Fire because of Newell.

"SK: You have had a really incredible couple years, scoring PLANET OF THE APES (2011), THOR (2011) and then now BRAVE. Is there any talk yet about you being on board for the next PLANET OF THE APES or even the next THOR movie?

PD: Well it’s being discussed at the moment. (Laughs) That’s all I can say. I’m having meetings with the directors, so that’s the hope."

Caught this the other day. Was very dissappointed by the score, though the film was alright. Utterly predictable,
overbearing, leaden, one note, humourless, sentimental, near wall-to-wall underscore. So many could have done without or even benefitted from no music.

Come back Danny Elfman. All is forgiven.

movie had being on my dvr for months. finally got a chance to watch it. pretty damn good. music is ok. could have being better. only theme I can remember was for the scene when Caesar frees that big ol' ape. "Buck is released" on the album. that theme comes back towards the end when the apes are tear assing around. but that was it. might notice more during a 2nd viewing I guess

look forward to the next movie

I have to eat crow.

When the film was released I liked it - but the score was disappointing to me.

Now, years later, I gave it another chance - and adore it.

Another victim of wrong expectations and throwing a childish hissy fit over not getting what I wanted.

In fact, Doyle really hits this one out of the park. Fantastic score.

Sorry, Mr. Doyle. I was wrong.

Here´s to you scoring the next one, too.

I agree, it's a fantastic score to an engaging film... but Giacchino is signed to score the next one (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). I'm a fan of both, so I am happy either way.

Oh, yes - Giacchino and Matt Reeves work together well.

And since I´m a Giacchino fan, too, I´m looking forward to this new score as well.

Maybe he will pull off such greatness like his "John Carter"-score, another throwback to a legendary era, in which the "Planet of the Apes"-movies were created?

Oh, how wonderful that would be. And hopefully it has a chance at a best score nomination too - the film and score are usually unfairly tied together in that aspect, which probably resulted in John Carter not being recognized at the end of the year.

I just saw this film for the first time last night, and I enjoyed it. And the score.

BTW, is it just me, or was that Kevin Costner in a brief cameo playing one of the cops on the Golden Gate Bridge? (If I recall, it appears somewhere within the one hour and 27 minute point in the film.) Is Costner a big "Apes" fan who asked to do a cameo? Or was this just some guy who looked like Costner?
