PASS. Too much Brian Tyler every time I see a major summer movie now

Yeah, why wouldn't we want the guy who does also thematic writing doing a summer film?

Also, the casual sexism a few replies up here is pretty damn horrid.

I hope we aren't giving free passes to "Well he wrote a theme!" I don't remember the themes for Thor 2 or Iron Man 3 or whatever sequel # we're up to. Our expectations seem to have severely lowered....

Well, I remember them, particularly IM3, so I guess we even out the score there.

And yeah, in the days when everyone seems to complain about most summer pictures having "droning RC" scores, I think the guy who does consistently write themes should be appreciated. IM3 and (certainly) Now You See Me had two of the most memorable themes last year for me.

Ummm yep, Now You See Me and Iron Man 3 both had dynamite themes, and Iron Man 3 was just a solid, melodic and hard charging score start to finish.

Thor The Dark World was pretty damn good as well. If you can't remember Iron Man 3's theme...well... you weren't listening big grin

You know, this is becoming more and more of a common trend amongst scores of all types. "I don't remember a theme!" Well, have you all ever thought that maybe you just aren't listening closely enough?

No one will be humming the themes for IM3 in a year. Sorry my expectations are so high...

Just because you're incapable of remembering the theme or humming it doesn't mean everyone is incapable.

Thank you for whittling down my comment to the LCD because I have a differing opinion. I forgot my audience. Maybe you can make this comment into a witty meme as well.

"No one will be humming the themes for IM3 in a year."

People easily recognized it today at the Oscars ceremony. And the score was released 8 months ago. Next time, don't try to pigeonhole everyone to think like you.

I concede defeat - you guys win. Commence lowering of standards.

The Oscars? You mean a audience made up mostly of people in the industry, no doubt osme of which participated on the film? Was there a show of hands from the members, to see how many recognized it?

Here in the real world, nobody and their grandma knows it.

Says the bloke who famously worships every generic RC score that comes down the pipe! I'm no fan of Tyler's but... really??

Is anyone humming The Peacemaker right now?

I don't see how you would compare a theme for the protagonist in The Peacemaker to a world-renowned comic and (now) film legend, Iron Man. To further bury that point, Iron Man should have a theme every bit as recognizable as Batman or Superman. I like Brian Tyler's music sometimes (Children of Dune, Timeline, Sleepy Hollow, Far Cry 3), but absolutely NOTHING stuck out for me in Iron Man 3 or Thor 2. We disagree - GET OVER IT.

And sorry I was too busy being deployed in Afghanistan to 'worship music' last year, sport. Don't try to speak for me and pigeonhole me into some flippant fanboy worship. My iPod has nothing but Silvestri, Williams, Zimmer, Goldsmith, and Shirley Walker on it, and my iTunes has more than 50 different composers.

Dude, the difference is, you have an opinion and don't care for the score. Completely understandable.

However, saying certain scores has no theme, when they actually do have demonstrable themes, isn't an opinion, it is a misstatement, and it is wrong. I don't care if anyone likes the Iron Man 3 or Thor: The Dark World scores, you are entitled to your opinion.

Saying you don't like the theme is fine. Saying there isn't one is completely incorrect.

When the play the themes for the movies, do they not put a picture up on the screen anymore? If they do, that is probably why the audience recognized it. "Oh, this is that score, it was a good movie, let us clap." Even the people in the industry would not know the music. If they did we would not have had some of the winners we have had in the past. We have not watch the Oscars in years and we will never again.
