Christophe Beck wants to score another Marvel movie

5 June 2014 5:40 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

In a recent interview, composer Christophe Beck said that his score for Elektra is “Still one of my favorite scores, and I think it has a very unique sound that holds up to this day.”

He also said, “I still hope to one day come back and do another Marvel movie, which may or may not happen, but I'm definitely being optimistic about it.”

Of course, Elektra was based on a Marvel character, but not a Marvel Studios film. However, whether or not they're made by Marvel Studios, superhero films based on Marvel characters (and DC characters, for that matter) have the potential to be both character-driven and examples of grand spectacle, which many of them pull off successfully.

Beck said “That movie did pretty poorly at the box office, even though I enjoyed the film very much.” It sounds like he's referring to enjoying the film itself, as well »

The Daily Treat: Meet a Mountain-Climbing Rescue Cat

23 May 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Purr-fect is the best way to describe Craig Armstrong's unique mountain-climbing partner. He adopted the stunning black feline named Millie from an animal shelter in Park City, Utah, and she is all he ever wanted in a sidekick. "I go on a lot of weekend climbing adventures. I always figured when I have a pet friend, I'll take her with me," Armstrong tells Bored Panda. "It never seemed odd to me, just seems like something I'd do with my pet, take her places."The places this pussycat has seen would make many humans jealous. Amazing shots on Armstrong's Instagram »

The Forgettable Soundtrack to Marvel's Movies

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb...

James Garcia, for We Got This Covered, writes with reference to Brian Tyler, the recently announced composer for Avengers: Age of Ultron:

"Tyler’s resume also includes The Expendables films, Now You See Me, and a handful of the Fast and Furious movies. He did an alright job with the music in his previous Marvel efforts, but as I said before, none of them were exactly memorable. The studio must like him though if they want to bring him back for Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Let’s just hope that he does as good a job with the superhero team-up as Silvestri did the first time around."

Read the full article here.

I think Garcia is well aware of flawed ‘alright’ critique of Tyler’s previous efforts. Considering the success of Marvel’s Universe of films, this is a core element that is consistently below par. »

Great Gatsby sweeps AACTAs

30 January 2014 2:39 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation wins every film category but two at the annual Australian awards ceremony.

The big budget Us-financed jazz age extravaganza The Great Gatsby won every film category but two at the annual Aacta (Australian Academy of Cinema and Television) Awards this evening Australian time in Sydney. 

This included the best film gong, which goes to Australian producers Baz Luhrmann, Catherine Martin and Catherine Knapman and their Us counterparts Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher

Luhrmann also scored best director and, with his high school friend and regular collaborator Craig Pearce, best adapted screenplay. 

The only award The Great Gatsby could have won but didn’t was for best actress: that instead went to Rose Byrne for her small part — all the actors had small roles overall — in the bold anthology film The Turning, adapted from a book of short stories by popular novelist Tim Winton.

Music in Film: The top 20 soundtracks of 2013

6 January 2014 5:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ivan Radford 7 Jan 2014 - 06:37

Last year may only be a memory, but its film themes linger in the mind. Here's Ivan's pick of 2013's best soundtracks...

Just a quick scan down the list below reveals an extraordinary breadth of genres and subject matters, from imposing, expensive science fiction films to quiet, intimate stories about men at sea on boats or outlaws breaking out of prison to be with their wives. Disparate though the films are, they're all linked by at least one common motif: their music is utterly brilliant.

So with 2014 already well underway, and an entire new wave of films with great music in them beckoning, join us as we look back to the movies of last year, their finest soundtracks, and the must-listen pieces of music you can dig out on each one.

1. Gravity (Steven Price)

Must-listen track: Don't Let Go
