I'm in the audience at Settling the Score tonight at the Royal Albert Hall, in London.

It's a showcase with Michael Giacchino and David Arnold, playing compositions by the both of them to 'compete' and see who is the better composer. Both of them are in attendance to present the evening, and there are a few special guests too! It's quite a lot of fun - both Arnold and Giacchino are very funny.

Matt Reeves just came onstage to introduce the Cloverfield suite. And then he "proposed" to Giacchino on one knee, asking him to score "The Batman". Giacchino said yes!

Sigh....

Would rather have had David Arnold.

I think this is really cool - thanks for the update! Really curious to hear how he approaches it, and if he gives any nods to the scores of the past.

I know we're not supposed to swear here, but F(¤(¤/¤&&K! Is there no end to Giacchino's takeover of all the big franchises out there?

Actually, swearing has never been against the rules.

What's so bad about Giacchino anyway?

I don't understand the hatred toward Giacchino. His work isn't always amazing but he's one of the finest composers right now.
And I'm pleased to learn about his new Batman commitment.

"Taking over the franchises?" Hans Zimmer has been droing out scores (or assigning them to his cost writers) for most of the non-MCU super hero films over the last few years. 3 Batman films, 1 Spider-Man, 1 X-Men, Batman V Superman, Man of Steel....get a grip.

Finally a current DC film with something less wallpapery, meandering or dour.

Giacchino will eventually stop being asked, as was Danny Elfman (and there was endless bitching about his doing comic book film after comic book film: "they all sound like Batman!!!"). In the meantime, here he is. He's not my favorite composer either, but His Far From Home score was one of his better efforts and a real joy. Both of his Spider-Man films were great. When he's feeling it, he's amazing. I've never heard anything from him that was less than merely uninspired.

The difference is: Hans Zimmer is great. Michael Giacchino is the greatest hack in the history of film music.

Oh, Thor... Just switch the names and you'll get it exactly right.

I kind of agree with that call back.
