Good to hear. Guy's a great composer and his themes for the series have become pretty iconic for them.
There are no themes, no moods. His music is purely as filler; it doesn't aid the story in any way.
While people are entitled to opinions, both of you are wrong. Just thought I'd put that out there
Yay. More generic-epic-action music. So thrilling.
You sir, are correct.
Steve Jablonsky is a fantastic composer and has his scores are brought the perfect mood to each scene. Glad he's returning.
While I agree, I made the comment since the scores of the films do have a consistent, recognizable theme and specific pieces to set the mood of each scene and are far from generic. Their criticisms were the height of ignorance on the topic.
I share a very similar opinion of Jablonsky and his work however you cannot call someone elses' opinion "wrong". You can respectfully agree to disagree with it but they are entitled to not like the work for whatever reasons they choose. Everyone gets something different from music. It is a personal experience based upon what that person knows and feels from a lifetime of their own experiences and knowledge and CANNOT be dictated by anyone else.
I will say that I am happy to see Jablonsky return for #4 and I'm hoping that Linkin Park will also be on board for it as well. While others think they suck and could care less if they contribute, I have very much enjoyed their contribution and the way that they have worked with Steve to bring some very poignant pieces to the soundtracks/scores for these films. Honestly, the music is about the only thing I'm looking forward to in this 4th installment since I'm of the opinion that they shouldn't even be making a 4th film to begin with and especially not one that practically reboots the whole works so soon after the release of the last one. That kind of Hollywood politics is just flat tiring and stupid from my POV.
