Track 19   Friday, July 4, 2003 (9:54 p.m.) 

It's pretty bad when the best track when the best track was composed not by Beltrami, but Brad Fiedel (19 - The Terminator). If only the entire score had been as good as that one track...

Re: Track 19   Friday, July 4, 2003 (10:00 p.m.) 

While I admit that I don't care for the first two scores, the theme is just so recognizable and great that it really WORKS in the film. In an interview with Beltrami, he states that the director didn't want to use the theme extensively in T3 because it brought back memories of T2.... which makes me wonder if Mostow actually SAW the movie he directed. Right from the beginning we are reminded of T2. Over and over we are presented with similarities (not to mention the same 'dialogue'), so I don't see the harm in using Fiedel's theme. Beltrami should have AT LEAST created his own grand, menacing theme to replace it, but alas, there is none (at least none you can hear in the film over the noise).

I loved T3; it exceeded my expectations. But the music could have been so much more (and not much less).

I think that T3 score is good but its weakness is that it has very little to be excited about, while listening (it's big, visual-effects and action packed, Terminator-movie!), it simply lacks some grandeur and awe. Beltrami seems to be more involved in creating specific synth and percussion effects than in more harmonious, orchestral approach - well it's movie about robots, so partly he's right . And yes, I agree absolutely with You about the 19th track - it's the stunning highlight of the score. I particulary love this quick- string passages in the middle of the track, just after Fiedel's music and before Beltram's variations, that reminds me much of similar in Silvestri's Back to the Future .The whole score is a kind of that growing up in listener after several listens, so it is not that bad as many says . Good job, Beltrami.
