"Close Encounters Of The Furred Kind" made me laugh, but I wonder if Giacchino would do this sort of thing if he scored a Holocaust movie or something. "Reich Here, Reich Now" is the first one that came to mind.

Track for track, this must be the greatest, most punningly brilliant Giacchino track list ever assembled. I never saw his first Apes movie and never heard the music for it, but I'm tempted to buy this album, music unheard, just to have these titles playing in my iPod!

I honestly can't stand behind this bad pun titles, but I'm really anticipating hearing this score!

All kidding aside, me neither. It's ok once or twice, but for everything?

It's probably why I much prefer Marco Beltrami's approach, where he and his producers are not bludgeoning you over the head with stupid, stupid, brainless puns.

A sampling of some of Beltrami's finest, which (IMO) are infinitely less obnoxious then what Giacchino and crew are up to...

Blade II, "Nomack the Knife"
Blade II, "Charge of the Light Grenade"
Carrie, "Mommie Dearest"
A Good Day to Die Hard, "Get to the Choppah!"
Hellboy, "Stand By Your Man"
The Hurt Locker, "There Will Be Bombs"
I Am Dina, "Swiss Miss"
In the Electric Mist, "Score vs. Airboat"
Knowing, "Roll Over Beethoven"
Max Payne, "Topless Fanfare"
Scream, "Red Herring"
Scream, "Backdoor Gail"
Terminator 3, "What Do You Want on Your Tombstone?"
The Thing, "Meating of the Minds"
Underworld: Evolution, "He is My Sonshine"
The Wolverine, "Hidden Fortress"
The Wolverine, "Sword of Vengeance"
3:10 to Yuma, "Chinese Democracy"

I find a lot of these to be smart jokes, and most importantly they work with context in their respective films! That is the key to a good pun or joke cue name, I feel. I liked a lot of Giacchino's track names on Let Me In, where they had context. But after John Carter, and even some of the first Star Trek score I am so baffled by them! Star Trek Into Darkness has a track titled "The Kronos Wartet." I mean, what the fuck is a "Wartet" in the English language?!

Yeah, the goofy track title trend rubs me the wrong way. I mean, they don't have to be Herrmann titles like "The Bus" or "The Hill" or anything, but naming some of this great music with godawful puns tends to give the impression that it isn't to be taken seriously, when clearly the care taken with the music itself says otherwise.

That's what I'm talking about. We all debate this back and forth every time he puts something out. For me, it sounds like he and his team put more care into these titles than he does with the scores themselves anymore.

So, you would folks say that these track titles are driving you bananas? Making you want to go ape?

That would be a very wrong impression.

Always loved Giacchino's style with titles. First reason to buy his CD

Judging from The Family Stone, it's safe to say he wouldn't.

Christopher Young is also the king of pun titles:

"Bandits" - Grusin Twosome
"The Core" - Diamonds are Forever
"The Country Bears" - Beartolucci Blues
"The Fly II" - Come Fly with Me
"The Fly II" - Musca Domestica Metastasis
"The Man who knew too little" - Turkish Rumba Splat Silly Fat Lamb
"The Man who knew too little" - Barrytone Sex
"Swordfish" - Music for Violence and Orchestra
"Wonder Boys" -That would be a Tuba
"Wonder Boys" - Small Showders

But The Family Stone was before he had an ego.

Maybe you´re just disappointed that one of the tracks wasn´t titled "Shawn of the Planet of the Apes"?

Some of you guys really need to lighten up. Why get so upset over freakin' track titles when there are so many other things in life that could cause you outrage?
