Are film score fans the biggest whiners period?


Despite a lot of the negativity, people on this board have nothing on a lot of video gamers I've seen.

Ooh, the label does not release something that I´m interested in - so I have to bash it!

Ooh, this other guy likes music that I do not like - so I have to bash him!

Ooh, someone proposes to be fair - how boring! I have to bash him!


These responses seem to be standard among film score fans.

Tragic.



I am not going to generalize everyone, because it is NOT everyone, but HAVE YOU LOOKED AROUND LATELY ??? We live in a ME society. It used to be "ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country". The tide has definitely shifted. "Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for you" is more like it today.

I read an article recently about how bugs and simple choices in video games result not just in complaints on message boards but actual death threats against the programmers and their families. It was really astonishing. So our whining maybe isn't that bad.

What may be either distressing or comforting is that fans of all stripes seem to be as tedious as we are. My good friend who used to work at an opera magazine tells me amazing stories of opera fans who sent long, vicious letters about even the smallest choices in a production that they disagreed with, and then expressed outrage when their letters were not published. And just for fun, go to the message boards for the Game Show Network. I happened there a few years ago researching something, and you would think they're caricatures of people who have no perspective about the thing they're most passionate about.

Doug's Corner

8/18/13
As announced recently, we will be releasing the soundtrack from ABC's hit series REVENGE this coming Tuesday, August 20. Scored by Izler with a slant towards traditional scoring over a current trendy sound design approach, the results are exciting. Also being offered on the same day is a CD premiering two scores, one coming from the late eighties, the other from the early nineties. Both feature music by veteran composers who have appeared on the Intrada label many times before.

It's rare that we haven't arrived at any conclusion on the day of release!

For the late '80s bittersweet teen comedy, could it be Elmer Bernstein's score for the European version of "A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon"? Unlikely, I think, because no mention was made in the clue that it was a score replaced for the US release, but it's the only late '80s bittersweet teen comedy from a veteran composer who has appeared on the Intrada label many times before that I can think of.

Likely candidates...

Bruce Broughton
David Newman
Laurence Rosenthal
John Scott
Richard Band

Doubtful Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Elmer Bernstein, Christopher Young, etc.

Oh please. If someone were to go into the latest Kritzerland thread and post the exact same comment about the latest boring Golden Age release, i doubt very much you'd be defending the poster from the cane-wielding mob (who would be on the attack and throwing a fit (especially the thin skinned underwear guy)) the same way you're doing so here. It's no coincidence the crybabies in this thread are Golden Agers - they are the biggest whiners on this board.


I'd rather be a Golden Ager than a snivelling pissant bitching at anyone who has an opinion you don't share.

I urge patience and decorum. To say the new releases are rubbish is jumping the gun. All we know for sure at this point is that one of them is rubbish. For all we know, the other one might not be nearly as bad.

I preferred your original reply here, but agree with the sentiment.

Generalizations seem inevitably to embarrass the generalizer (though perhaps too seldom in his/her own eyes).

Maybe Paradise / Can Buy Me Luv is correct... it still fits all of the clues... Intrada has released quite a few scores by both David Newman and Robert Folk... so fingers crossed.

Usually Roger keeps feeding clues on the Intrada board until they get it. Since he hasn't, the answer must be on there. The last guess was Paradise by David Newman and... "Heartbreak" Hotel by Georges Delerue.

If it really is Paradise I highly recommend anyone to listen to the samples. Even if you are not into David Newman. This is just a wonderful emotional americana score. If you only know Newman in his wacky comedy mode this definetely will be a surprise to you.

There's virtually no music in HEARTBREAK HOTEL so it's obviously not that. I don't even know why Delerue was credited for that film.
