    Lightbulb New purchase

    Since I am the one who suggested the new forum, I'll start a discussion. I just purchased the soundtrack to the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. I haven't seen the movie, but the music is magnificent. Has anyone heard the soundtrack, or seen the film by any chance? It's also the first time I had heard of the composer Edward Shearmur, who Wikipedia shows to have worked with Michael Kamen.

    Highly recommended, especially for all the John Williams fans.

    It's almost the same style as a lot of the music from Star Wars. You can listen to excerpts here.

    Rondo,

    You say JP3, Don Davis is one of your favourites?

    You must see the Matrix Trilogy - his music for that is immense!
    When all the paint has been dried, when all the stone has been carved, music shall remain, and we shall work with what remains.

    I have parts of it, just not the whole score. I like the JP3 score, he just isn't who I would consider a favorite overall.

    yeah Elfman did a great job then but i dont like him as much since charlie and the chocolate factory came out. I just feel that the oompa loompa music ruined it where as the in the Gene Wylder version the music gave it its glory.

    I've never heard that one. I tend to shy away from soundtracks with vocals, with very few exceptions--The Nightmare Before Christmas being one of them. I should have mentioned it previously, but forgot I had it.
