I agree about "The Odessa File".

We all have films that bore us. Mine include "Dances With Wolves", "Braveheart" and "Titanic"...and that includes the scores, as well. But I know others love them.

Aww. I really like "The Cardinal"

TMP is not a crap film or a bad film.
You might not like it though.

It is very well crafted and directed by a brilliant man, and it is a big escapist film that very few can compare to since.

There are far too many to list.

Often, disastrous films and low budgets translated into composers being left alone to do what they wanted.

Lady in the Water. at least it gave the world "The Blue World" and "The Great Eatlon" so i'm grateful for that.

I have to disagree with The English Patient. It is a wonderful movie. You guys have no heart! wink I can think of many other movies to win best picture but were completely unworthy: Chicago, A Beautiful Mind, Crash.... I could go on and on.

CHICAGO is a brilliant film. A great satire on media and fame, it completely reinvented the concept of the film musical. Tons of glamour for a film set in a women's prison - the director did an amazing job with that. And if you've seen the parred back long-running production currently on Broadway, you'll appreciate the film even more.

Good one. Some liked the film, but I just thought it was so awful. Absolutely stellar score by JNH. And the same goes for their prior collaboration THE VILLAGE, one of my favorite scores of the '00's, but such a dreadful film.

Timeline.

How BOTH Tyler and Goldsmith could find inspiration in that mess is beyond me. But they both did and we got two very enjoyable scores out of it.

The movie bored me to sleep.

So many responses, yet not one mention of The Humanoid. The gap in quality between the film and the wonderful Morricone score is as close to infinity as the human mind can fathom.

Actually, I think there's stiff competition among the many excellent scores Morricone wrote for crappy movies.

Personally, I'd say epic failures like THE EGYPTIAN and THE SILVER CHALICE rank high among horrid movies with superb scores attached.

A really good score makes me like a crappy movie, so I have no choice for that category. However, my vote for the best film with the crappiest score, is THE ODESSA FILE. CRAPPIEST. SCORE. EVER.

Haha, now that I definitely agree with ( and personally I can't stomach his musicals either ).


One film I've never heard a good word for is 1982's MONSIGNOR, I absolutely love John Williams score and have always avoided watching that film.

Another score I enjoy immensely is John Barry's STAR CRASH, there's no doubt this film is uber-crap but I do find it a good silly watch and hey, it's got Caroline Monro in it cool

We actually discussed that score recently toward the end of this thread.

Suffice to say, I have never heard it (apart from the song), though I am a fan of Lloyd Webber so I would like a release.

Me too. I find it even far better than Cameron's and Jeunet's efforts and as good as the original with a completely different approach. Would love to see the so-called "director's cut" one day.

There is a great article on the Tiomkin website regarding his reaction to Wyler's " Friendly Persuasion. "

Can anyone name other Steiner scores that fall into this category ? There have got to be a few, considering he scored so many W.B. films.


Friendly Persuasion is a fine film.

You seem to have it all wrong altogether. NONE of the films you mention or suggest would qualify for "crappiest", even the worst Warner Brothers releases have a certain level of craftsmanship and quality (each lacking in so many films today).

There is much worse than LE BRASIER, it's called EDGE OF SANITY (still by Talgorn)


With Demi Moore accent from THE SCARLET LETTER:

"Filmed by a porn movie director... What did you expect, Governor?"

Color of Night with Bruce Willis was a really terrible film, it seems like the score was decent, composed by this guy I have never heard of - Joe d'Elia.

It is a really really terrible film.

Heavy Metal. Pretty bad film. Incredible Elmer Bernstein score and incredible heavy metal songs too.
