This is indeed the man who should be directing Ben-Hur.

I love how they call these guys "Visionary". What, he uses slow motion? I've seen his movies and nothing at all he's done could possibly be called visionary

There was only one other event in my life that I could compare to seeing the film Wanted and that was the lone trip I made to the proctologist.

Why is such a common non-sensical opinion around here? At some point I'm thinking you are all lemmings...

Based on all the scores to films he's scored, that I have seen or sampled. And for goodness sake -- you linked to a score, after calling us lemmings, that's composed not by Eastwood, but rather Lennie Niehaus.


Eastwood just isn't any good at scoring. Now, if you want an actor who is, try Anthony Hopkins:

Buddy, Eastwood wrote "Claudia's Theme," the cue from Unforgiven which I linked to. confused

And I can go on and on providing actual music for you to listen which will make your "noodling" commentary seem pithy.



I still stand by my overall thought on this message board, that most of you do not like music nor care to listen to it.

http://screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/21842/ANTHONY-HOPKINS-COMPOSER/


Yes, I will agree. Sir Anthony Hopkins is a fine composer. He and Mr. Eastwood have both delivered phenomenal works performing as a rare triumvirate: actor, director, and composer.

Well, I stand corrected -- he did a theme. So? The link just drives home my point. It's more unremarkable noolding, this time with orchestra backing, which only makes it even worse 'cause the orchestra clearly needs something better to accompany.

There so many talented older and newer composers out there looking for work, he should just step aside and concentrate of the things he clearly does better. Maybe hire somebody like, oh, Lalo Schifrin. Just a thought.

I'm with you, nuts. I like Eastwood's work as a composer. May not be the most complex around, but why should everything be? He does his own thing, and I respect him a lot for that.

FSM, the only place where hard, proficient, and accomplished work is referred to as "noodling" by laptop cowboys.
