Composers Scale Up Scores for Epic Projects

10 December 2014 11:07 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back in the days of “Ben-Hur” and “The Ten Commandments,” a widescreen epic was expected to be accompanied by a lavish symphonic score and, just as often, a heavenly choir.

Is that still true for today’s epics, with all the trappings from extensive CGI and 3D to 7.1 Dolby Atmos Surround sound?

Yes, for the most part, say the composers of historical, religious and fantasy films including “Noah,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” along with the author of a new book on the subject.

“Big, massed orchestral sounds, alternating with very nuanced, soloistic use of strings and winds. That’s what comes into my ear when I think of the epic style,” says Stephen C. Meyer, author of “Epic Sound: Music in Postwar Hollywood Biblical Films,” which examines the music of such classics as “Quo Vadis,” “The Robe” and “Ben-Hur.”

Marc Alan Fishman: Suicide Squad’s Sinister Sextet

6 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Hello movie lovers! Tis I, Marc Alan Fishman, resident ComicMix snark-do-well. I figured I might as well get at least a day out from the legendary John Ostrander on the topic that most presently has the comic book fanboys all a flutter. What’s that, you say? The recently announced Suicide Squad movie from DC Entertainment now has a cast? Well, what better to do then but react to each of the specific castings of the sinister sextet of seriously spiteful sinners.

Jared Leo as The Joker

I know what everyone is thinking. “Boo! Hiss!” they cry. Well, not me. Casting the clown prince of crime with yet-another slightly slick looking actor, with plenty of dramatic chops, seems apropos. Look kiddos. When they announced Heath Ledger, the outcry could be heard for miles around the Internet. All up until footage started leaking in dribs and drabs. And then when The Dark Knight debuted, »

Tech Support: Can Alexandre Desplat land three Oscar nominations for original score?

4 December 2014 2:36 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Academy Award for Best Original Score is one of the categories I find most interesting and most frustrating. First, the good: I love the awarding of film music, which can immeasurably improve the experience of a film and can become iconic in its own right. There is also much about the music branch that I love, particularly its international flavor, both in terms of the composers cited and the types of music rewarded. Moreover, while the category tends to favor Best Picture nominees and epic movies, it is not excessively exclusionary in this respect. But that love of epics can sometimes lead to simply rewarding "most music." More importantly, this branch is infamously insular. Unless a composer is aboard a major Best Picture contender or has otherwise composed a simply iconic score, it is unusual to earn a first nomination. And even those features are not always enough for first-timers. »

Christopher Nolan denies “Real Movie” comments about Marvel

5 November 2014 6:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Christopher Nolan inadvertently caused a bit of a meltdown on Twitter when a comment he supposedly made in a Guardian article about Mavel’s post-credit sequences saying, “a real movie wouldn’t do that.”

The original section from the Guardian reads:

“When the studio asked if Snyder would add a comedy coda ending, in the style of Marvel, Nolan’s reply was ‘A real movie wouldn’t do that.'”

However, Nolan took to Buzzfeed today to set the record straight, simply saying, “I would never say someone else’s film isn’t ‘a real film’. The quote is inaccurate.”

The original Guardian article has had a footnote added today which reads, “Subsequent to publication, Nolan disputed the quote attributed to him by Snyder. According to Nolan, he had told Snyder, “We shouldn’t be chasing other movies, but stay true to the tone of Man of Steel.”
