(...) I would compare it to the best work of Maurice Jarre.

Ugh, hyperbole much?


I just wonder where it ranks next to Solar Crisis.

This is obviously Varese Sarabande's fault!!
I wouldn't be surprised to learn that they phoned Sony and advised them to delay this CD, "cos it will really annoy those bunch of dweebs at FSM"
(they don't even speak properly!!).
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr frown

I'm quite happy for Mr Giacchino to title his tracks anyway he damn well pleases, and look forward to "FSM Message Board Can Blow Me" on the next album.

P.S. Shouldn't that be "Damn them all to hell"?

It's a pun. Probably they blow up a dam to flood their enemies or something. (Or build a dam to flood them out?)

If these groan-inducing puns draw enough attention that a couple more people check out the music than would otherwise, then that's certainly a good thing.

Based on the track titles, it sounds like this movie will be hilarious! I don't usually see zany, madcap comedies in the theater, but I think I'll make an exception because those cue titles have me anticipating big laughs. Might turn out to be the funniest monkey movie since Every Which Way But Loose.

I'm bothered by this. It seems as if Giacchino isn't taking his own artistic creation seriously. It diminishes the score. If I were the director of the movie, I wouldn't allow it. Can't imagine Goldsmith would have ever done anything like this (outside of a comedy score). This seems just another example of how we're in an era of cultural decline. I know DAWN is just a summer blockbuster movie, not a prestige picture meant to garner Oscar buzz, but the filmmakers should have a somewhat serious regard for what they're creating. These cue titles stink.

Punny cue titles "diminish" the score? Really?

roll eyes

... Okay, I have to admit I laughed pretty hard at this.

This "outrage" is really pointless.

The film and the score, by the way, are getting rave reviews. Many critics already call it one of the best films of the year. Major awards might crown this achievement.

It is a pun, but the dam is just a setting for an interesting character conflict in the film. I had the honor of being present for part of the score recording session. It was humbling to be around such a crack team of professionals, like a Formula One pit crew at the top of their game, but the mood was very light and happy, and the track titles were part of that.

I agree on your first point (though I think anyone giving mild disdain as "outrage" is someone best left as suspect) but as to critics calling it one of the best films of the year... well, they said the same about the last one which was certainly fun but by no means as good as the original films.

Yeah, no outrage here. Just an opinion, not a crusade. As for the first film, I thought it was one of the classiest summer blockbusters in the past few years though certainly not a classic. I'm cautiously optimistic about this next one.

The last one had a lot of good stuff going for it - but the wealth of references to the original films was like cement shoes weighing it down. (The new Star Treks suffer from it too). I thought it was fun enough and I own it on BluRay and hold no ill-will but was left very surprised so many people were falling over themselves to praise it. (I'm assuming these are the same types that enjoyed Chris Nolan movies though, so...)

Agreed, but hopefully with all those references made they've gotten it out of their system. Emphasis on
"hopefully." I mean, it would be pretty tacky to have yet another reference to missing astronauts and surely they can't do the "damn dirty ape" line again. Surely...

Really can't believe what I'm reading here in defense of Giacchino's goofy cue titles. Oh, how standards have fallen. If it where a gonzo, zany comedy film, this wouldn't bother me, but this is supposed to be a serious movie, not just an empty-headed "fun" summer blockbuster, like the latest TRANSFORMERS piece of cultural shit. Not only that, but for me, who's favorite film is and always will be the original PLANET OF THE APES, it's like a slap in the face. It's like Giacchino is saying to me personally (which of course I know he isn't literally but, figuratively....) it's like he's saying, "I wrote the music for this, but...." I can't continue because I just don't understand the mentality behind it! I just don't get doing this -- because this for posterity. I'm a fan of Giacchino. I wanted him to score RISE and was very glad when I read he was going to score this one because of all the current film music composers working I think he, outside of John Williams, displayed in previous efforts the best sensibilities for this kind of score. But now, it's like at the last minute he decided to take a dump on the thing, as if to say, "Folks, artistically, don't take this music seriously, it's all just a goofy lark. I'm just a musical hack." It's nuts! A hundred years from now are these the cue titles he wants film scholars to be reading?

And for all those who will now attack me with the cliched responses of "Seriously? Really? Come on, lighten up!" Sorry, but seriously and really this is how it emotionally affects me.

No, sir.... I don't like it.

I get that you don't like the titles, but "emotionally affected" and "slap in the face"? That's taking it a bit too far.
