• In Response to: Best Score of 2006 so far? (Christian Kühn)

It's been a slim year. Very disappointing.

My top picks so far:

Superman Returns
V for Vendetta
X-Men: Last Stand
Fateless (technically 2005, I guess)

The Marianelli is the only one I listen to for spare time enjoyment. He accomplishes the same masculine brutality with orchestra, synths, choir, and electric guitar that Zimmer attempts to do... but with incredible balance and style! Even at Vendetta's most explosive rhythmic moments (like tracks 11 & 13, for instance), with churning strings, pounding percussion, deep choir, and rambling electric guitar, you can still hear those flutes whipping up a storm over the top. I call it "intelligent masculinity." Lots of fun, and I appreciate it moreso after listening to POTC all weekend long. I would love to hear what Marianelli could do for a POTC-type assignment. He'd probably be able to satisfy Bruckheimer without sacrificing smarts...
