Lets see in 10 years which score will be remembered - your 5 star "avatar" or this frisbee one.

A highly thematic score for the highest grossing movie of all time by the financially most successful film composer of all time vs. a droning ambient synth score for an introverted movie by two nobodies in the score world (even if Trent Reznor might be a bit more well known otherwise)

Yeah, Social Network is definitely going to go down in film score history whereas Avatar will be left by the roadside. Makes sense -.-

Considering Trent Reznor is somebody in the real music world (namely one of the most innovating musicians of the last 20 years) and this was his first scoring assignment, chances are this score will indeed be remembered more than Avatar.

What does "remembering" have anything to do with it being good? I'm sure people will remember the Hannah Montana craze and Miley Cyrus, but that doesn't make either of those remotely good.

The correct answer is both.   Monday, January 17, 2011 (12:49 p.m.) 

As the Raiders March keeps being used in Family Guy, the Magnificent Seven still reminds you of Marlboro, you still hear screeching violins in a scary scene from a movie and the Imperial March is still being played by school bands at football games to represent the visitor team, both Avatar and The Social Network are already buried.

James Horner does however have a significant name in the real world after Titanic. And I'd just like to point out, that Avatar is more memorable than The Social Network and the large exposure Horner's music has been given plays a huge role. I mean this is the highest grossing film we're talking about. 10 years from now, if I were to play both scores the chances of remembering Avatar's themes are much more likely. If I went to a friend (who has no knowledge of film scores) and played the Social Network's first track, they wouldn't have a clue of what it is. But if I played something like "Climbing Ikimbaya" to them, then they'll probably go "Hey, its that Avatar song..."

Its just my opinion, but I don't see how the Social Network will outlast Avatar in the mainstream (I don't even know if TSN has made a big impact on the mainstream). And I'm not comparing quality or anything because even if both films were melodically on the same level...Avatar's greater exposure will guarantee Horner's music to be remembered longer. But as Richard says, I think both scores will still be eclipsed eventually while classics like Williams' works will live on.

^^ THIS. I'm done with Filmtracks. My grandmother is open-minded enough to appreciate how effective this score was. John Williams, an orchestra, and a choir will always be awesome and timeless, but that's not always the formula for effective film music. I can't wait to watch Trent Reznor accept his Oscar.
