...because the academy blindly hates sequels and anything that's related with them.

> but do you think TMR should have at least been nominated for the oscar?

Yes I do. It was one of the most breathtaking scores in recent history of filmmusic with absolutely unforgettable themes, large scale dissonant and splendid action cues and a great choral stuff. Not even mentioning it's gorgeous orchestrations and music production. I liked it much better than Goldsmith's "The Mummy" because TMR had way better themes and it wasn't that old-fashioned as Goldsmith's score.

> i know the film is quite crap. imean its okay but the score works

You're wrong about the film. The film was better than it's prequel. It had more fun, more romance, more human conflicts...

> in my opinion, its effectiveness can match that of howard shore as well.

Almost. I think that Shore's LotR was (and is) the best filmscore ever written. I give it six stars outta five, hehe.

> oh well, just a thought

It's OK.

howard shore stands a good chance because i think the two

road to perdition is cool as well.

My top5:

1. The Two Towers (Shore)
2. The Four Feathers (Horner)
3. The Time Machine (Badelt)
4. Signs (Howard)
5. Road to Perdition (T.Newman)
