Re: PH trailer music(Ciramor)
I remember most the music from the first of the theatrical trailers, because it suited the mood of what Pearl Harbor should have been. Pearl Harbor should have been about one of the darkest hours of american history, not some sappy, unconvincing love story. Or it should have had a better script, better actors (Ben Affleck should have been replaced above all), and a better director. Michael Bay screwed up, and bad. The first trailers used music from Hans Zimmer's The Thin Red Line, and it sounded magnificent. Dark, brooding, elegiacal and mysterious. What Zimmer did in Pearl Harbor was great, but it didn't really suit the film and the story. Some magnificent cues on this soundtrack, it really does work on it's own and it's a spectacular listen often times, but as a filmscore, it wasn't that successful.
But again, I doubt that even if Zimmer had time to deliver a fantastic and suitable score that it would have made the film work. Horrid, horrid film.
