I've been discovering some good funk records as well as of late, but I dont think the genre has enough goodies for me to say I'm a funk fan.

check out the funkadelics and brothers johnson if you haven't already, they are my funk fix almost exclusively.

being a huge christmas humbug even I love night of the meek, art carney is just soo good in it... my top 3 are shadow play(dennis weaver plays a man on death row trying to convince people that this is only his recurring nightmare), perchance to dream(a man fears his nightmares are trying to kill him), and walking distance(gig young goes back to his childhood as an adult)

looks amazing... reading through the forums somebody mentioned it reminded them of the outlaw josey wales... i have to agree.

General Discussion / Re: Morricone Influence
« on: December 23, 2006, 05:52:58 AM »
hell i'm trying to think of any film that took a cue from morricone in that respect... i can't think of one, is there anyone other than morricone who has tried that and been at all successful?... with different characters i mean, i know it's been done to differentiate between moods and settings, but characters i'm having a hard time thinking of one.

well i've always seen it as "the long goodbye" by johnny mercer and john williams, and williams is credited with the score for the film, and since that is the only music I would have to assume he at least wrote or conducted the music, most likely it's lyrics by johnny mercer, who i am not familiar with so i could be wrong... anyway, he had something to do with it since it's the only music in the movie, maybe he just did one of the versions, my point stands, it's the only score he's connected to in any way that i've really loved, loved enough to mention in a the same breath as morricone... and your comment helps further explain my position on the matter, one great score you were sort of halfway responsible for doesn't make you morricone caliber, and since thats the only one i've really loved with his name on it, he doesn't cut it.

madonna songs are recognizable but it doesn't mean they are any good.

the only john williams score i'm in love with is the long goodbye, and that is just a dozen versions of the same song played in different ways throughout the movie, everything else is pretty ho-hum to me... just because you're scores are recognizable does not make them good, jaws for instance is popular and distinctive, but there is nothing special about it.

actually come to think of it... some promising film composers who already have a pretty good partnership with a decent director....

-jon brion with paul thomas anderson
-I was going to say basil poledouris and john milius, but milius is never given the shot to make more movies and poledouris actually just died last month
-danny elfman and tim burton isn't bad
-james newton howard and m night shyamalan

as far as i'm concerned the only living film composer that compares to him is bill conti... and he's the only guy who reaches the shear volume of film offers as morricone, the guy has like 100 scores to his name, most popular for rocky... problem with successor is that he's already in his 60's

i went through the same dillema 2 and a half years ago after the theatrical rerelease and all the buzz about how that would bring along a dvd release very soon, needless to say i was happy i bought the dvd(i think it's korean or japanese or something), i have to switch discs to get the final flashback but it's worth it... get the rip off, it's better than what i have and you never know if the dvd will ever be released, until official word is put out the smart thing to do is get whatever you can because that may be all you ever get
