Ottman's is my least favourite X-Men score so... unimpressed.
The end credits suite from his X2 score is my favorite track from the album, but overall this is the least played of all the X-MEN scores (granted, I don't have X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE). X3 is tops in my book, followed by FIRST CLASS and then Kamen's X-MEN. I think Ottman's score for X2 works great in the film itself, though, which is of course the main thing that matters. Regardless, I still like Ottman's music and appreciate that his fully orchestral and thematic music will be part of this upcoming movie.
So a full on time travel movie featuring two casts? I hadn't heard about this sequel yet, sounds promising if they get it right. Ottman's score has grown on me after the La-La expansion, not a bad choice to score it.
have to say i am not super excited either. though if this movie runs toward the original franchise it was the right choice. but jackman did an incredible job with first class i thought. one of my favorite scores of that year. so i will miss it. all depends on what this crazy movie ends up being.
I enjoy Ottman's X2 quite a bit, and look forward to hearing what he will do with this.
Same here. I really like his X2 theme, and the LLL release really fleshes out his score. I also loved what he did recently with Jack the Giant Slayer and hope he can continue in an older, romantic style of big sweeping themes.
I think X2 is the best movie, so I am glad to see Singer directing another one. Ottman's X2 is also great, and Jack the Giant Slayer is Ottman's best to date IMHO so Ottman returning to to the X-Men franchise is great news all the way around.
