Brad Fiedel is UNDERRATED   Tuesday, June 24, 2003 (10:40 a.m.) 

Just wanna say that i think that he need more respect because he is underrated, except for the Terminator films he did really good work on such films as Serpent and the Rainbow And Striking Distance also be sure to look after the more or less unknown TV movie Hostage that`s also a great score
It was very sad that he didn`t scored this one, hope he will score True Lies 2

... to say the least. How can his score for T2 may NOT be emotional, atmospheric, frightening, etc.? Good Lord, I'm still in cold sweat when watching T-800 & T-1000 fight for the first time AND hearing THAT music.
Alas, alas.

Too bad for Marco. The score is a complete nihil. Almost didn't notice it in the cinema.

The only good thing that Brad Fiedel has ever created is the original Terminator theme.

Marco's T3 score isn't the greatest, but it's certainly listenable on its own, unlike Fiedel's score for T2 and T1.

The people who dislike Brad Fiedel's T2 must not have liked the movie, either. The T2 score is a perfect blend with the movie's visuals and story. This is definitely an example of what a film composer is supposed to do.

Im sure these same "bad reviewers" of the T2 score dislike Vangelis' Blade Runner soundtrack as well.

Finally i know wat's wrong here,everybody is absolutly in need to an ear-aid !
Even the people at Filmtracks are ! Brad Fiedel ROCKS ! The new guy only it up, and should be ashame for creating this ! The T3 music sucks, it's more for movies like 'Short Circuit' or Bateries not Included' ! They should have stayed with Brad Fiedel, he at least knew what it is to bring a movie into music !

This T3 soundtrack is absolutly a waste of time AND money !

Schwarzenegger shou reconsider this and let Brad remake it for the DVD release !

I'm a VERY big fan of all Terminator movies, the soundtrack are a very important part of my collection, but for this one i wont give 1 cent !

I think the key word is character. Did the music bring a new element to highten the enoyment.. emotion or character of the film? I believe that Fiedel created such an original sounding scope for T1 and T2. Beltrami... well I have high respect for all film composers, so I'll say it's a shame Fiedel wasnt onboard to continue to bring that extra eliment of originality and character to T3.

Thanks

Aaron
