IMHO, I'll watch BOLT before I'd re-watch FROZEN.

BOLT has the best opening ten minutes of any CGI animated film ever. Nothing comes close.

In your opinion, is FROZEN worse than HOME ON THE RANGE? BOLT? MEET THE ROBINSONS? smile

Whoawhoawhoawhoawhoa! Things are getting a little nasty here...to say nothing of illogical. BOLT and MEET THE ROBINSONS bad movies? Since when?

BTW, getting things back on track, I thought Steven Price's GRAVITY was merely okay. Really wish it went to Newman or Desplat (despite not having heard the latter's nominated score), because, let's face it, they're both due.

The songs in FROZEN are not up to Menken level, but do I begrudge the win? Not in the least. It's a charming tune. (Also, I think the film - despite a clumsy, IMO, story turn - was deserving of the award.)

So glad you aren't running things in Hollywood

Yeah, 'cause Hollywood is just so damn amazing to begin with.
roll eyes


If it wasn't so amazing then why are you even here on this board? Why do you love film and music so much...so much so that you comment on this board?

There's more to films and film music than Hollywood, in Octoberman's defence. It's perfectly possible to love both, yet eschew that particular machine, especially from a European or Subcontinental standpoint.

And the idea of Thor as Pope is mindblowingly good. Pope Loki the first, perhaps. I might even find religion!

And the Oscar goes to...

as I said countless times, long before this thing called Oscar, to the BEST 2013 soundtrack, my dear fellow Williams talibans, old style professors and no-modern-music adepts.
So sorry smile

From what I understand, the Oscar for Best Original Song was first presented in 1934 which would make it 80 years since it began......

John Williams robbed again of an OSCAR!

The man has five already, so I don't think he's that bothered.


The man has been robbed on several occasions imho.

JFK
SUPERMAN

in particular.

Congratulations, Mr. Price. Thought your Academy Award acceptance speech was particularly thoughtful (thanking immediate family members, musicians involved). Looking forward to hearing your future work.

nice speech indeed

Speaking of the Oscar's has the orchestra been permanently moved out of the main auditorium? I remember reading on this board that it had been moved last year.

I am not familiar with all of the nominated best original score, also not within the context of their movies, but I found Stephen Price's score for GRAVITY a very worthy winner.
An unusually contemplative score that actually manages to pull you in to give you a sense of zero gravity.

And he robbed many in 82. STWOK, Conan and NIMH were far superior scores. wink

My Academy Aword Winner of 1982 would be either Goldsmith's POLTERGEIST or Vangelis' BLADE RUNNER...

But ET, STWOK, CONAN and NIMH were all quite good too.

That was one hell of a summer for soundtrack lovers! My favorite year.

Yes, you are so darn right about that one... it was really one of the vintage years in film music. All these score up there were great. Williams and Goldsmith were at the top of their game. With James Horner arrived a fresh young voice on the scene (STII was by no means his first score, but it was the one that put him on the map for good), Basil Poledouris composed his magnum opus... not to mention Philip Glass and KOYAANISQATSI, one of the seminal works in film music, Goldsmith composed FIRST BLOOD (one of my all time favorites), Morricone teamed with John Carpenter for THE THING... all in one single year!

The surprise for me was the song from Frozen. I hadn't heard it before. And all I'd read about it would have led me to believe that it was the greatest song since the heyday of Menken and Ashman. Color me surprised when I heard wannabe pop drivel, tuneless, with awful "empowerment" lyrics and - no ending. If that's someone's idea of a great song, count me out. Then again, the other nominees were much worse. I don't know, call me crazy but Moon River is a great song, Part Of Your World is a great song, Beauty and the Beast is a great song, Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing is a great song - Let It Go - I don't think so, IMO.

I'm not saying you're wrong... just that no one agrees with you.

I do agree that "Moon River" is a great song. :-)
