Default Michael Giacchino: The Ultimate In Music Production!!!

It was only a matter of time until he won an Academy, Grammy, Golden Globe and BAFTA all in the same year.

So it's a safe thing to say...Michael Giacchino is becoming the best composer of the new generation!!

He does seem to be a rising figure in film scoring the last couple years.

He's been around for a while now, and has created some superb scores:

- The Medal Of Honor games (Very heroic)
- Lost (Very innovative, with great themes and an uneasy atonality that is unmatched)
- The Incredibles (The best James Bond score since John Barry, and a perfect tip of the hat to 60s spy features)
- Mission: Impossible III (Great use of Lalo Schifrin's themes, while making sound bigger and bolder. Also truest to the original series of all the scores of the M:I films to date)
- Rattatouille (Delightful, French style that brings about the romance and delight of Paris.)
- Up (Beautiful, and masterfully understated. The lifetime-of-marriage montage brings a tear every time.)
- Star Trek (Great action-adventure score, bringing in Sandy Courage's classic theme as a payoff. Lots of great music from the film is absent from the Varese soundtrack).

His Oscar is absolutely deserved here.

Congratulations Mr. G!

Now, as an aside, I was on iTunes looking up great soundtrack tunes and remembered the soundtrack to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Howard Shore...Why haven't I heard more about him? Love "Gollum's Song" and "May It Be". I wish iTunes had the end credit music for both LOTR: Fellowship and The Two Towers. I love how hauntingly the themes move from one song to another.

All you'll want to know about HS and his music: www.howardshore.com

I agree, the music from the LOTR films is great. I have both the original soundtrack CDs and the Complete Recordings.

The first soundtrack album I bought was from The Wrath of Kahn. I still have that vinyl classic.

WOK - You need to get the FSM/Retrograde CD from Amazon or ScreenArchives.com. Complete score with better sounds, detailed liner notes, and a great cover design.

Not sure if it's just because I LOVE those movies and their beautiful philosophical themes, but I've discovered the soundtrack to elicit such amazingly strong emotions every time I hear it. As far as my personal preferences go, it's one of the best overall films scores of all time!
