Well, I was going to post this tomorrow, but Riley's impatient for new threads lol, so I'll finish it up now. Just trying to put together a few different composers' cases for Composer of the Year, decided to start with all the Remote Control-connected composers since it feels like a couple of them are our frontrunners, only to realize that there are a lot of them lol. So this post is long.

Hans Zimmer
Scores: Dune, No Time to Die

You know what? Let's just call it Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazarro, neither of them worked on anything without the other: Boss Baby 2, Spongebob: Sponge on the Run, No Time to Die, Dune, Army of Thieves

I haven't heard either of the animated scores, generally liked Bond, didn't like Dune, Army of Thieves was okay. So that's a clear no from me lol.

Tom Holkenborg
Scores: Justice League, Godzilla vs. Kong, Army of the Dead

I wanted this to be Holkenberg's year so bad. And there was a lot I liked in Justice League, much that I didn't. And Godzilla vs Kong was a huge letdown. Army of the Dead was fine, didn't like it as much on my most recent listen.

Lorne Balfe
Scores: The Tomorrow War, Black Widow, Dopesick, The Wheel of Time S1

I haven't heard Dopesick, but Tomorrow War had some good moments, Black Widow was pretty good, and Wheel of Time is intriguing me so far.

Ramin Djawadi
Scores: Reminiscence, Eternals, Surreal (not a score)

Surreal doesn't count for me, but Eternals and Reminiscence are good enough that I'm seriously considering Djawadi as a front runner.

Dominic Lewis
Scores: Peter Rabbit 2, Monsters at Work, Jolt, The King's Man

Out of these I've heard...The King's Man, and that's just the Disney FYC promo since it's not out yet. Anyone have thoughts on the other ones? Speaking of Kingsman...

Henry Jackman
Scores: Cherry, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Ron's Gone Wrong

Did I hear Cherry? Honestly don't remember. Ron's Gone Wrong is a delight, and Falcon and the Winter Solider is pretty good. Or, at the very least, it's Jackman finally writing a Marvel score that uses some sort of thematic continuity.

Benjamin Wallfisch (?)
Scores: Mortal Kombat, The Starling

I totally meant to revisit Mortal Kombat after a slew of fairly positive reviews. Still haven't. The Starling is lovely though.

Anyone else from the RC roster I've missed? Will post about the other guys soon.
