Van Helsing score hightened the flick!   Monday, May 10, 2004 (5:04 a.m.) 

I am a fan of Silvestri! I have been for quite some time. I first began to admire his work when I saw "What Lies Beneath" for the first time and found myself completely drawn in by the score. I am not just an ardent music buff, I am also very much interested in the cinematic world in full, and, as such, am a major follower of Robert Zemmekis (director of What Lies Beneat). He must also be a fan of Silvestri as he also got him to score for the outrageiously hilarious black comedy "Death Becomes her". The Mummy Returns was a bit of a let-down I have to say. I admire his command over the orchestra but the themes were slightly cliched and annoying at times.
Last thursday I saw Van Helsing. Clearly I like Steven Sommers as a director and thought I would give this flick a whirl despite the bashing it was getting from the critics. I don't mind the odd action adventure pic and I am not the type to shy away from vampires and the like...however my expectations weren't high. On the whole I enjoyed the film, at least it had a story line that wasn't predictable and I very much enjoyed the way that it meshed all the monsters of old into one plot. However, the icing on the cake was the score. I enjoyed it immensly...so much so that I often times wished that it was louder, so as to drown out Kate Beckinsale's truly pathetic transilvanian accent! However, the score has not yet been released here, in Australia, so I thought tonight I would look it up on the net. I was previously unaware that it was a Silvestri but I was glad when I saw that it was. He is my second favorite film compuser(my favorite being the GENIOUS Danny Elfman who I believe could have also competantly scored for Van Helsing)
Knowing that it was a Silvestri score changed my mind - instead of downloading the score I am going to buy it when it comes out (next monday)
I would just like toend this by saying that I don't know why I am writing this...nobody would be interested right?
