not a terrible thing that Goldsmith was kicked out   Sunday, December 7, 2003 (3:28 p.m.) 

I saw the movie opening day, due to the fact that I loved the book, but as I watched I noticed a few things...One, the film was just plain bad, perhaps its not a terrible thing that Goldsmith was kicked out, that way he would never be linked to such a horrible movie. Second, the acting...yeah, it was just plain HORRIBLE, third, it was nothing like the book. And Fourth, the score, at least in the film, seemed not so good, I mean, I didn't notice a motif at all for any specific theme, just a few bursts of brass glory every few minutes (most notably when the cross the river and when they show La Roque for the first time). But even more, it seemed far too corny, for example, anyone remember that chord midway through "Battle in the Mutara Nebula" from Star Trek II, you know, the one thats really really dissonant? Well, the exact same chord is used when the principal bad guy attacks Marek toward the end of the film, its just...predictable. I guess what i'm saying is, I hope the score is a lot more enjoyable on album (I'll buy it just for the bursts of glory when they show La Roque), then it is in the film...no, I pray.

I love how you say, 'perhaps its not a terrible thing that Goldsmith was kicked out, that way he would never be linked to such a horrible movie' LOL Goldsmith has scored more crap movies than any other composer, and his music is almost always top quality for such films. I have no doubts that Timeline is a terrible movie, but I think Goldsmith still would've taken credit for it. He's that kinda guy.

Jerry Goldsmith had scored and recorded the music for the movie in late December 2002. When the film had to be reedited, it was discovered that Goldsmith's score no longer fit, and needed to be redone from scratch. Goldsmith was fully booked and unavailable, so 'Brian Tyler' was given the chance to do the music for the movie.

I think he even scored tow diffrent versions of the movie. I guess he was tiered of rescoring the movie 10 times. Tyler has done nothing too great yet (including this score), but he has a lot of potential.
