I didn't like Tyler's Rambo score at all. Everything about it was bland and generic. Worse, the action material was boring. Long gone was the pulse-racing, adrenaline-fuled, odd-metered frenzy of Goldsmith's action cues for the franchise.
.


I suspect that odd metered action material catches a lot of modern composers out of their depth.

I definitely vote for Alan Silvestri.

He is the only one who is able to do it the closest way Goldsmith would have done it, ostinato included.

Evidence is here:

Flying a tank track from THE A-TEAM exactly attests Silvestri's clever and accurate approach to a comic strip military action blockbuster score...in the good way.

I hope he'll do it...

Tyler or Silvestri just fine for me!!

But I'd have to go with John Powell I think...

I would vote for Silvestri. That would be amazing. I didn't like Tyler's score for the last film at all (even Goldsmith's masterful music felt out of place for me).

The last Rambo film IMHO was just a nasty, unpleasant, poorly written, and poorly scripted failure of a film. It tried so hard to come off as "realistic" yet in many ways it was more glorified, with its ridiculous OTT violence, and more offensive than "Rambo III" could even manage. The shutter speed effect that was constantly employed during action scenes also made me want to vomit all over Stallone's best suit.

I'd rather watch Rocky V again... yes, you heard me right. Not Sly's finest hour. roll eyes

Have your tried the directors cut of the film? Its a little longer and from memory some of the dialogue is quite different in certain scenes. I quite like it.

Everyone knows whoever gets the duties ain't going too replicate JG & Stallone isn't gonna want that either, I thought Tyler did a nice energetic score had cool melody in patches - it wasn't repetitive going through it I enjoyed it - I'd be happy to see him return.

I'd rather watch Rambo in a language I do not understand than see a post from you.

So are we even?

Of course we're even.... as in, who even are you? So sure, enjoy your foreign indulgence into mediocrity.

Just be sure to add me to your egonore list, and you can be guaranteed to never see me again.

Still doesn't seem to be anyone attached to score the film. It may mean Sly is thinking long and hard about getting the right composer for the job? Hopefully.

I remember the old days when pretty much every Stallone Movie had a Bill Conti Score. But I don't think Conti would want to take up the chores after Goldsmith's Iconic Scores. I enjoyed Brian Tyler's work on the last movie.

I always thought Conti would have produced a memorable score for a Rambo flick.


When I think Conti, I think uplifting score leading to a rousing finale. I couldn't think of a composer less suited to scoring a dark, broody Rambo flick.

Lock Up?


Cohen & Tate?

Parts of F/X?

The Formula?

Conti has the action & brody chops, but
it'll never happen..

It'll either be:

- Brian Tyler

- a Spanish composer - as is often the case for Hollywood films shot in great part in Spain - like Banos, Velazquez, Vidal or a few others

- or Trevor Morris, who seems to be Millenium Films' composer of choice on their serious actioners.
