Saw the film today, loved the film and the score. It really works well, especially with that theme, and the end titles are fantastic. Really impressed with Tyler here.

Very dynamic.

At first it seems like nothing more than generic action score, but soon enough it evolves and shows its range & depth. It has some Stark ego/show-boating, some clever espionage coolness, and some understated heroism that I hope will be ripe for plundering later. Quite sophisticated work, very nice to hear in an Iron Man score.

I suspect I`ll be able to stand by this after I see the film - good job Mr. Tyler!...


I picked it up from Amoeba SF today, and I just loaded it into iTunes. Giving it a listen right now and I'm lovin' it. Track #5, Dive Bombers has a bit of a Bond vibe to it. smile

I was listening to this yesterday and then listened to The Incredible Hulk by Craig Armstrong immediately after and I thought "Wow, all these Marvel scores are cousins to each other." I was amazed how Brian Tyler's score seemed to tie together the "sound" of the Marvel universe into a cohesive whole. As it turns out from the above interview, the reason is because they've temped the Marvel movies with Brian Tyler scores! Great!

The score is full of the beautiful bold main theme where Iron Man finally gets the leitmotif he deserves, completed with coherent action arrangements and excellent orchestral compositions. Lots of energy, time and passion has been put to it and it's evident. Well done, Brian!

Mine arrived today and I'm enjoying it. Nothing ground breaking but very reminiscent of what, say, Basil Poledouris would have done. Great theme...imagine that! And it gets used a lot, but in creative and appropriate ways. Very nice. Looking forward to seeing the film.

PS: I thought Debney's IM2 was quite good as well, though it was dialed down way too much under sound effects. Hopefully Tyler doesn't suffer the same fate.

heard the score as used in the film... and nothing.

this is one of the few times i've heard a Tyler score that did nothing for me. it was serviceable and the theme was there but nothing really stood out and nothing made me go home and look up cues.

its a real shame as he is one of my favorite composers. i'll be dragged to see the film again i'm sure [i honestly didn't think it was that good] so maybe that listen will yield better results.

YOR just saw the movie.

And it is really bad.

The plot is just ludicrous and makes no sense at all.

And it is filled with huge plot holes, like, why Stark spends half the movie trying to fix one armor if he had all those hundreds in his home?

The score is the only good thing in the movie.

YOR wonders how someone can greenlight such a stupid screenplay like this...

with JARVIS offline and Tony faking his death until he has a plan of attack, he has no access to those suits which once Jarvis is online after the #42 suit is fixed, he informs him that quiet convenient that all the debris has been removed from lower part of the destroyed mansion.

Hey! Some of us haven't seen this yet. Start up a separate thread the rest of us can avoid if you want to discuss the movie and not the score, please.

The movie is great, and the screenplay, in terms of set-up, pay-off, and what it's doing, is certainly one of the best yet in terms of this new Marvel movie universe. Go see it.

Come on, whose opinion are you going to trust more? Me, or the guy who makes up words, thinks something is a "plot hole" when it isn't, has a fake name and types in the third person?

Yeah, good way to fake his dead by walking everywhere in plain sight... Oh, yes, he was wearing a cap! That is it!

YOR wonder how Jarvis was able to start all those hundreds of armors in the already destroyed house... Not to mention Stark "calling" his armor from thousends of miles away!

Pretty inteligente stuff, yes.

I think this thread is for the music, not the film. It wouldn't be that much of an issue if there weren't a lot of us waiting to see it and trying to avoid spoilers - it doesn't come out til tomorrow, so why don't you use the spoiler function, wouldyaplease?

Yeah, geez. I know this isn't Schindler's List, which I am watching for the first time (I JUST PASSED THE PART WITH THE CUTE LITTLE GIRL IN THE RED COAT - SHE'S SO HAPPY AND CAREFREE, PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME HOW IT ALL TURNS OUT FOR HER IN THE END), but come on, that's not cool to do.

It's looking like you American film fans will have to get used to seeing films discussed before you've seen them!
Lately, it seems MOST major potential blockbusters get a release in the UK, Europe or Australia a few weeks before their North American release. A real far cry from days of old!
So far this year, Oblivion and Iron Man 3 have opened here first and I think we are getting the new Star Trek before you too!

Well, this is neither the time nor the place to discuss plot details. And there's no shame in being courteous and either writing "SPIOLERS BELOW!" above a post or blackening their post, like so.

I agree G-f, I always open up with a warning, if I'm discussing a relatively new film release.
