Need to see that.

Summer films I've seen in order of best to least:



1. Star Trek
2. Up
3. Hangover
4. Funny People
5. Bruno

Thoughts...Hangover I thought was surprisingly well written, whereas Funny People was vice versa. The only thing I've really seen in Star Trek form was this 2009 version, it made me interested. I thought it was great film. I'm not incredibly into Pixar films, but I appreciate any film with a good crafted story. Bruno was hysterical and had me laughing out loud. I'm slacking on the amount of good summer films to see.

EDIT: goin to see it now lol. im stoked. the first trailer made it look idiotic; one big allegory for accepting illegal immigrants. Second trailer proved that it was much, much better than that lol

let's talk favorite film composers for a minute. the creator of the most important element of a film.

my favorite is easily Thomas Newman (if my user name didn't give it away). his scores match his films perfectly and he has scored some of the best movies of all time, yet he's never won a fucking Oscar.

just some of his work:

The Shawshank Redemption
American Beauty
Wall-E
Finding Nemo
Road To Perdition
The Green Mile
Revolutionary Road
Little Children
The Good German
Jarhead
Cinderella Man
In The Bedroom
Pay It Forward
Erin Brokovich
Meet Joe Black
The Horse Whisperer
Little Women
The Lost Boys
Fried Green Tomatoes
The People vs Larry Flynt
Phenomenon

Favorite Score? I'm gonna go with the more popular answer, and say Danny Elfman. I loved his work in the old Batman and Beetlejuice, etc. Him and Burton are a good team.

yah im pretty sure acting and plot are sliiiiightly more important than the film score... or in hollywood these days, special effects trumps all, but you get the point.

A great score can certainly enhance a film, but imo a score isn't even necessary for a film to be great. Often times scores bug me b/c they get too overdramatic and try to tell the viewer how to feel about a certain situation too much.

idk, i just feel like if you take out the score in the beach scene of Shawshank it looses all of it's punch and emotion, i think the score makes that movie. i think people take the score for granted most of the time. imo The Dark Knight wouldn't have been nearly as intense without the score. but then again, there are movies like No Country that use no score and that method really adds to the films intensity also.

D9 was strong. Gives me high hopes for PJ as producer of The Hobbit movies.

I wonder if Moon will expand beyond its limited release. I'm ready for more sci-fi now.

I know this is about movies, but if you ever saw the show the wire, no score whatsoever... and yet, IMO, the most intense and gripping drama ever. You don't have a score following you around everywhere you go in life, so if the movie is really pulling you in, you don't need a score to heighten your senses. but thats just being the devil's advocate, obviously there are some movies with epic scores that really help shape the scene.

caught 500 days of summer last night and I was pleasantly surprised. The lady friend really wanted to see it and I walked away quite impressed

D9 is next on my list
