This one really caught me off guard because the first one was so hyped and I honestly wasn't hugely impressed by the first one (that did eventually change after more listens). Predator 2 is a powerhouse on another level tho. Great score.
My personal favorite Silvestri action score is The Mummy Returns. My First Bus Ride is ecstatic writing and playing all around. Evy Kidnapped is also great fun.
I just recently purchased Volcano and have given it a couple background listens. I wouldn't say it's great but I've enjoyed it so far.
Silvestri is a bit hit and miss with me. I love some of his action scores but some others I find very generic (The A-Team) and his suspense stuff I find a bit boring sometimes (What Lies Beneath). I’m definitely not a fan of his early synth scores (Romancing The Stone, Cat’s Eye).
That said, some of his scores are among my favorites:
- Judge Dreed - Predator - Back To The Future III - The Quick And The Dead - The Abyss - Fandango - Beowulf - The Mummy Returns - Ready Player One
Ok no-one likes "Over Board" - if you haven't seen this movie henry I'd think you'd like it.. OB has country-vibes of violin Banjo moods also lovely orchestral cues & great laid-back easy electronics all fitting for this movie.
Henry, why not tell us what titles you have? So people don't repeat ones you have.
