Similarities to Elfman's "Iris"   Sunday, March 24, 2013 (10:31 p.m.) 

Have you ever heard Elfman's score to "Iris" by Cirque du Soleil, Christian? That's what many portions of this score reminded me of, almost as if Elfman had incorporated them a la SOP. I'd definitely add "Iris" as a major influence next to the others you named.

the only score of "Iris" that exists in this universe is James Horner's. and I pretty much see Elfman as something akin to a modern greek god, so that should say something about horner's score. HOLLYWOOD, stop [bleep!]ing making movies with the same name as films that have been released in the past (and i'm not talking 30 years ago, but less than a decade.) and though it would take me hours (i'm kidding minutes) to decide who I'm more in love with, horner or elfman... no probably hours. I simply 'know' in my heart of hearts and cock of cocks that Elfman's "iris" (with Cirque Du Soleil?) can't compete with horner's in the boxing ring; though in the fight I automatically give horner many handicap points simply because of the sin elfman (and filmmaking co) embarked upon titling their film after a pretty solid, moving english drama with kate winslet and a few other fine english actors from 2001.
