This is fucking incredible. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross matched the tone fuckin' perfectly. Choosing them to score this film might be one of the best decisions surrounding the film. Trent Reznor is connected to the digital age more than any other musician alive, and this is such a parable on the digital age. I really hope the Academy recognizes this score this year. Some of the winners this decade have blown my mind. The Slumdog score was nauseating, and Howard Shore's work on the Rings trilogy was some of his poorest work to date. Let's get on this, Academy!
Shit.....haven't listened to Trent's score yet....but i'm liking all the positive words around here. But regarding what you just said, I dunno, i think that all the hype is around Hans Zimmer and his vuvuzela-ish score for "Inception". I think that because the Academy kind of ignored The Dark Knight, they'll try to set things straight with Nolan by giving his movie all the awards that Inception is nominated for. And for sure, Zimmer's score will be nominated

IMO of course

I will agree that Zimmer will probably earn a nod, but I doubt they'll place a statue in his hands. The Inception score at it's core was just basic Zimmer. It wasn't surprising, it wasn't very effective, and it wasn't a particularly phenomenal piece of work. I do not think it'll win on politics alone. I'd like to think Clint Mansell will get a nod for his Black Swan score, though I haven't heard it, so it's too premature to say. I hear he does wonderful things with music from Swan Lake, though.

Daft Punk's Tron: Legacy score and Pheonix's Somewhere score could be surprise upsets, but I highly doubt it.

All in all, it's a diverse and awesome year for movie soundtracks.

Inception score is very good IMO. Marr's guitar doesn't hurt either haha.

You're right.....this year's soundtracks are looking good. This will be an interesting category in next year's awards.

I'm eager to listen do Phoenix's score. Thomas Mars said in an interview that writing the score for the movie was more like engineering the sound than actually composing. But i'm looking forward to checking it out. Even more after that "Somewhere" won best movie at the Venice festival; that shit got me by surprise

I see your point. Inception score was really ok. I actually enjoyed that building up in the climax of the movie, that helped create a sense of tension and all....but Zimmer had already done that on TDK, so I think your're right when you say that Inception score was Hans Zimmer just playing it safe most of the time.

Without letting my displeasure with the film influence my opinion on the music, I can say that it was a fitting score, but nothing about it stood out. It felt like Zimmer doing Zimmer, and there is nothing wrong with that. It served it's purpose. I just don't think it is worthy of much praise. I think Zimmer's score for The Pacific was much more monumental, though mini-series don't constitute as film, so there's no way he'd get nominated for that.
One thing that is sometimes off putting about Hans Zimmer is that he thinks too big. He's not much a fan of leaving things unsaid. He's the Michael Bay of film composition. This isn't always bad, but it doesn't play to his advantage all that much either.

I was very surprised Somewhere took the top price in Venice. Venice has a notorious history of giving some undeserving films the Golden Lion. Ang Lee's won it twice in the last decade.

Will listen to the score, but refuse to see the movie.

I'm sick of a facebook presence in the lives of people i know and in the media that can do no wrong. The site sucks, it's pushing people farther apart, not bringing them closer together. I'm waiting for the day when it is no longer relevant. Facebook ruins relationships more than it helps them.

Reznor prob hates it i'll read his take on it soon.
