The Mummy Returns vs. CutThroat Island   Friday, June 1, 2001 (3:12 p.m.) 

I cant help to compare the Mummy Retuns score and the CutThroat Island score.
They are both great action-scores, in my opinion Cutthroat Island was the best score of 1995, while Mummy Reruns is the best score so far in 2001. Even though Edward Scissorhands by Danny Elfman is my favourite score through times, these two scores comes high up in my rankinglist.

The movie CutThroat Island was a big fiasco, and I can understand it. The movie is really bad, Geena Davis is a disaster as the main-character.
But the score is magnificent. Not many bad movies have good scores, but this picture has. John Debney has sorrowfully never been close to achieve something similar after CutThroat Island. I believe it is strange this is he wasnt even nominated for Oscar for this score, but i guess the Oscar-people rather prefer James Horner or Stephen Warbeck (havent even heard of Steven Warbeck until he got Oscar for Shakespeare in Love)

I have listen to Mummy Returns and CutThroat Island some times, and i have to say ; Cutthroat Island is the best one. Mummy Returns have the best "hero-music", but the album can sometimes be rather boring. CutThroat Island has the ability to keep you interested all through the album, thats what i like about it.

So what is your favorite action-score? I would like to hear.

I really like Hans Zimmer works especialy CRIMSON TIDE and THE ROCK. But I like other none Zimmer works like DEEP BLUE SEE, ARMAGEDDON, ENEMY OF THE STATE. But my all time favorites are James Newton Howard's, Jerry Goldsmith's and James Horner's action themes. Goldsmith score for THE MUMMY is truly a great score and maybe the Maestro best work. But Alan Silvetri did a very great job for JUDGE DREAD and ERRASER wich are my best Silvestri scores.

I'd have to say that Goldsmith's "Total Recall" is the best action score, but as far as heroic music goes, James Horner's all-round filmography just about sums it up, "Rocketeer" inparticular.

I haven't heard "Mummy Returns" as much as "CutThroat Island", but I'd have to say I prefer the latter score.

Just something you might find interesting. You may be able to do a much more direct comparison of the above scores next summer, as John Debney (composer of CutThroat Island) has been selected to score the next film in the "Mummy" series, "The Scorpion King" (yeah, I know, its more of a spin-off).

I think The Mummy Returns is way better then Cuttroat Island, but that is simply because i'm huge fan of heroic action music, and TMR is full with that.
But I must say, Cuttroat Island is very good as well, and Debney is a very good composer; but i prefer TMR...
