Ignore list?
No, guys, no way! I'd never put a person to an ignore list - I want to read every post no matter what!...

I would like to address that one barb about Zimmer stealing off Morricone for Sherlock Holmes.

Yor I must remind you that your beloved Goldsmith took a crap load of inspiration from Stravinsky, Bartok, Varese, even Alex North.

No film composer past or present is wholly original. Herrmann would be the closest thing to truly distinctive stylistically.

You know, we'd have many fewer threads derailed if you would just leave YOR's posts of his opinions on scores there without replying to them and labeling them typical YOR posts. He is rarely the only one who expresses a similar opinion in the threads and yet nobody seems to feel they need to reply to my posts or those of other posters who don't like the Zimmer style.

We will always have people who don't expect much from certain composers who are going to wish that more classically oriented composers were attached to major projects. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion as to whether a composer writes enjoyable scores. Instead of attacking posters, you could learn to recognize the tastes of individual posters and so when they say "this is an awesome score" you know if that means you will like it or not. Some of us are harder to please than others.

Oh boy I think I opened up a can of worms, lol. Either way these turn of events have given me a good laugh, something I've been needing for a while.

If this forum is to be believed, the music in the new trailer is part of Zimmer's score.

Inspiration is one thing. Very cool.

Copy note-by-note from others... not cool at all.

Too bad the guy who wrote that put YOR on his ignore list.

This would teach him!

I think the problem is it's well established that he is not a Zimmer fan. nothing wrong with that at all. where it becomes tiresome is when you jump into a thread repeating the same comments again and again. we get it, you hate Zimmer. that's great

YOR might and honorable hunter from the future.

He does not hate Hanzimmer.

He just despises it.

I do not hate Zimmer at all. I do believe he is a fantastic composer, able to do legendary work.

But I don´t like and despise his factory work, basically plastering the market for blockbuster action during the last two decades.

I also have the feeling that he is rarely trying hard enough these days, as if he´s content giving the sonic wallpaper that one expects from him.

That´s why I was so pleasantly surprised that the score snippet from the MAN OF STEEL trailer sounded different from his usual stuff. I´m looking forward to this score and (as always) hoping for Zimmer to get back to his earlier top form.

(REGARDING HENRY, PACIFIC HEIGHTS and BACKDRAFT are my favorite Zimmer scores, and I do like his DARK KNIGHT-trilogy (although there he seems to have been inspired by James Newton Howard to do something better than usual).)

Now, sir, that's a calm and composed view!

(Although I would certainly avoid the use of the words 'fantastic' and 'legendary' to describe his work and I sadly don't really believe we'll ever see him again reaching the quality that some of his scores had 20+ years ago...)

Right, because "Rainman" and "Driving Miss Daisy" sound so similar to "The Da Vinci Code" and "King Arthur".

YOR is talking about all his action scores. They are all the same.

Even YOR could do a score for movies like "Rainam" or "Driving Miss Daisy" and they would be better than Zimmer's!


Geez...the guy can't even spell. What on earth is he on?

One doesn't have to be a teacher to correct elementary school spelling, Yor.
Look... we all understand you despise Zimmer. I can understand that point of view without subscribing to it. But it becomes annoying when you bring that into every thread, and not only say how much you dislike him but then go further and insult him personally. We get it. I usually find your posts somewhat humorous, but the way this is going, pretty soon no one will take you seriously. If you cannot contribute, then just ignore a theme. Then we're happy and you're happy. It's fine for everyone to post their own thoughts/opinions/insights about the topic, but history has shown us that when you post about Zimmer it veers into a verbal brawl. So let's think before we post. OK. Bye-bye now.

That was the irony in "superior intelect", too. smile

Whether you like the score or not, it's hard not to admit that Crimson Tide is a legendary score.
