Marvel Studios Countdown: Everything You Need to Know About Marvel Movies at Sdcc

26 July 2016 9:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

News from Marvel’s panel in San Diego was hitting the internet faster than we could hit refresh. We got you covered on the television side, and now in one handy-dandy post is the rest - all of the movie news, casting, and announcements that Marvel dropped last week. Hopefully, this will keep you daydreaming until Marvel’s next big bombshells. Marvel Studios Has All New Fanfare! Instead of playing up the brand name alone, Marvel has tinkered with their studio intro credit to focus on their characters. The original fanfare, composed by Brian Tyler, has been replaced by a new composition from Michael Giacchino (Star Trek, Up). While the new intro works fine, the long-running one focused on the rustling flips of comic book pages and glimpses of comics that reminded...

Vin Diesel and Brian Tyler discuss Charlize Theron’s Fast & Furious 8 character

10 June 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a little less than a year now to the world wide release of the eighth title in the Fast and Furious franchise, interviews and press have begun to reveal more information about the first entry in the series since the death of star Paul Walker. This week’s comments, made to Entertainment Weekly, focus mostly on the new female villain that Charlize Theron plays, Cipher.

“It’s like a siren kind of thing,” states Brian Tyler, composer of the last four films in the Fast and Furious franchise. “There’s no question the havoc and villainy she brings [but] you’re attracted to it. There’s something where you can kind of see yourself in this villain that makes it more disturbing and, at the same time, more interesting. It’s the sympathetic villains, in a way, who really get under your skin. In a much different way, but like »

Which Iconic Composer Will Score 'Avengers: Infinity War- Part I And II'?

7 June 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If you're a film score nut like me, one area where Marvel Studios has badly dropped the ball is in the music department. I grew up in an era where films about iconic characters were loaded with powerful themes and motifs that helped tie the whole experience together. Whenever a particular character entered a scene, or a certain kind of situation was taking place, the score would immediately help to identify exactly who/what we should be focusing on, or how we should be feeling.

Composer Alan Silvestri comes from that era, and his scores for films like the Back To The Future trilogy, Forrest GumpRomancing The Stone, and Father Of The Bride have withstood the test of time. His work on the Marvel films has been a little more anonymous, though. He scored Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers. Both were fine, and he created themes for both, »

Review – Brian Tyler live at the Royal Festival Hall

8 May 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson reviews Iron Man 3 composer Brian Tyler’s sensational London concert…

What does it take to an endure as a successful film composer in the 21st century? The answer, if you’re Brian Tyler, is versatility – and a lot of energy. Making his concert debut at London’s Royal Festival Hall on Saturday night, the ubiquitous Tyler presented a rollicking line-up of his various scores for film, TV and console games, his muscular offerings proving that he really is this generation’s heir apparent to Jerry Goldsmith (that many of his scores exceed the quality of the projects for which they’re written is another facet he shares with Goldsmith.)

Loose and limber whilst addressing the might of the Philharmonia Orchestra, plus choir, Tyler’s dazzling conducting skills made for sheer spectacle all on their own, the composer using his entire body and vigorously gesticulating to all points »

Everything that’s wrong with the Batman v Superman soundtrack

4 April 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson examines the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice score – and why its relentlessly noisy nature is bad news for everyone…

Now, I want to preface this piece by saying that I am a massive fan of Hans Zimmer, truly one of the most innovative and compelling forces in film music (when he chooses to be). From his revolutionary synth breakout with the likes of Rain Man and Driving Miss Daisy in the 1980s to the thunderous action of Backdraft and his multi-faceted collaborations with Ridley Scott (Thelma and LouiseGladiator, Hannibal et al), Zimmer is a superb storyteller who doesn’t deserve the mud that is often slung at him. On tour in the UK at the moment, Zimmer has recently courted a lot of press attention with his high-profile announcement that he is to ‘retire’ from scoring superhero movies.

And this brings me to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. »

25 great music scores composed for not very good movies

Some brilliant scores accompany movies that don't always deserve them. Here are 25 examples...

Can a film soundtrack rescue a movie that is otherwise a lost cause? One thing’s for sure: throughout the history of cinema, music has often been the redeeming feature of many an underwhelming movie. Here are 25 amazing film scores composed for films that, frankly, didn’t deserve them.

25) Meet Joe Black (Thomas Newman, 1998)

This somnambulistic three hour romantic drama should really feature an extra screen credit for star Brad Pitt’s fetishised blonde locks. Rising way above the torpid melodrama of the plot is one of Thomas Newman’s most hauntingly melodic and attractive scores, one that leaves his characteristic quirkiness at the door to paint a portrait of death that is both melancholy and hopeful. The spectacular 10-minute finale That Next Place remains one of Newman’s towering musical achievements.

'Saban's Power Rangers' Begins Production

29 February 2016 12:44 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Hollywood certainly does a great job of banking of our nostalgia. From comic book movies to reboots of beloved film franchises, they certainly know how to tap into our emotional core as human beings, like it or not. The next group to get catered to will be the many generations of Power Rangers fans, a long-running TV series that's been on the small screen since the early 1990s.

Sure, there have been a few movies in the series' long run, but none of them set the world on fire. The first film--which featured Ivan Ooze as the main villain--while a solid attempt to adapt something to the big screen, failed to succeed on many levels, and after that one, the movies only went downhill from there. With this Lionsgate production, the studio hopes to revitalize the brand for a modern audience.

The film is set for a March 24, 2017 release, and with that in mind, »
