”I'm sorry about your house - your wife... your... house-wife.”
Monster Hose (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Douglas Pipes

This animated horror fantasy comedy was released in theaters 15 years ago today. This score is basically the stepping stone for Pipes’ own Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus scores. It’s a shame that Pipes’ career hasn’t taken off since this movie. He’s pretty much been pigeonholed in the horror genre this last decade. It would be a very welcome change of pace to see/hear him breakout into other genres, but it seems nobody wants to hire him unfortunately.

2 DAYS IN THE VALLEY - music by Jerry GOLDSMITH


Thanks to Mr. Mutant's great work, I'm giving this score anther spin, armed with new insight thanks to the "rescore" videos.

I'll be focusing on Goldsmith's rejected scores over the next few days, and then I'll be going though the rest of Goldsmith's 90's works.

I wasn't too thrilled with Goldsmith's nineties works, mostly because I was always hoping for another Blue Max or a Poltergeist, for instance. However, the passage of time has shown me that Goldsmith's later works are just as interesting as the earlier ones, just different. The sign of an artist always adapting, always evolving.

@ Lewis & Clark: please tell me that the main character doesn't wear shorts, shorts and (ugh!) flip flops?

”So are you two...? Do you...? Fondue?”
Captain America: The First Avenger (Original Soundtrack) - Alan Silvestri



Joe Johnston’s adaptation of the origins of the patriotic Marvel Comics character, which spawned two sequels and possibly a third, was released in theaters ten years ago today. The movie was a fun and entertaining period adventure movie in this shared universe. Not to mention Johnston was able to rebound from The Wolfman remake debacle released a year prior. Even though I enjoyed Silvestri’s score, it wasn’t anything particularly special. I found it mostly serviceable in the movie. Aside from the Captain America March and the Tesseract theme there aren’t much themes/motifs to latch onto. Although the score is orchestral, it doesn’t necessarily depict the 40s time period. Score wise Captain America: The First Avenger is pretty much cut from the same cloth as Silvestri‘s own GI Joe: The Rise Of Cobra and The A-Team scores minus the electronics. Aside from the “Star Spangled Man“ song written by Alan Menken & David Zippel the “Captain America March”, which wasn’t included on the CD but digitally because it was recorded after the album was finished, is the only cue that depicted that era. Captain America’s theme is memorable and fitting but it doesn’t get to shine as it does in the march cue, which I felt could‘ve been extended. Regardless the militaristic theme was still able to characterize Steve Rogers patriotism, compassion, bravery and heroics.
