• In Response to: When Elfman ruled...... (Fernando Giménez Moreno)

I think that it's not enough to compare just the scores, we have to compare the movies too. To be honest Hulk was a in' disaster. Spider Man was really enjoyable (in my opinion) ; a movie which, at least, didn't take itself too seriously, and the score has fit really well (again in my opinion) with it. Danny Elfman is still the same good guy, so are Hans Zimmer, James Newton Hawoard etc. The problem is not with them, the problem is with the quality of the movies. Unfortunately we can not expect good scores for bad movies. And if we look back ... well in this year Phone Booth was the only movie which had that quality (although it was shot in 2001). The rest suck ass. Last year Signs and Minority Report were good. The year before may be Tigerland etc. etc. etc. Year by year we get less good movies, that's the bigest problem. It's impossible to write good scores for such movies like: Hulk, Tears of the Sun, Dreamcatcher, Terminator 3 ... But it's just my opinion ..
