Michael Giacchino conducted a fairly lengthy suite form "Bad Times at the El Royale" as the first encore at tonight's "Lost" concert at the Ford Theater in Hollywood. Certainly take into account that I'm a pretty big fan of Giacchino's music and it was playing to an extremely receptive crowd, but I greatly enjoyed the suite and it received a big ovation at the end. There was quite a bit of variety in the music played, including a catchy main theme, some percussive action music, a very melodic secondary theme that I assume was a romantic theme, as well as some choral music (there wasn't a choir at the concert, so the choral portion was pre-recorded).
This sampling definitely left me very interested in hearing the full score.
Looks like Milan is releasing a physical CD on Friday, November 16th.

I'm mainly talkin' about his BIG LOOOOONG feature films*, which, to me, are just so drawn out and self indulgent, that they strip away any inherent good they might have. CABIN had me buzzin like a kid, watching a horror film like for the first time again.
*I remember liking RESERVOIR DOGS and 2/3 of PULP FICTION.
I enjoyed his last film (CABIN IN THE WOODS, his first as director) more than ANY film I've seen by Tarantino, Onya.
That has nothing to do with whether the film at hand is or is not a Tarantino ripoff. It certainly looks like one. Granted, the trailer could have been edited to look that way, but the source material certainly looks and feels (second- or third-rate) Tarantino.
I enjoyed his last film (CABIN IN THE WOODS, his first as director) more than ANY film I've seen by Tarantino, Onya. It was a fun and clever twist on horror conventions, in general.
I thought the film, entertaining though it was, was somewhat overrated. For one thing, why the hell did that facility even have a 'release all monsters' button?! Still, Richard Jenkins cursing out the video of the Japanese girls after they vanquished the ghost made me laugh harder than most actual comedies.
As for this movie, if it's even half as good as the year's other movie about strangers converging in a hotel in a far-off time period written and directed by a guy named Drew, I'm in for a fun time.
I like the way people talk as if Tarantino INVENTED ANYTHING!!! The guy hacked his way into a career and has been rambling, rambling, rambling on ever since. I don't think it's possible to RIP OFF Tarantino as he is the very definition of RIP OFF!!
