A movie based on a ride based on a movie...  
So, I love Johnny Depp and monkeys. Good laughs from them both.

Otherwise, not much else to say.

Except, maybe, that I've never been more irritated by (what should have been) "background music".
Mood: Savvy
Music: the same four notes, over and over and over...

Punch-Drunk Love had some really annoying background music. I didn't notice it the first time I saw it, but when everyone pointed it out the second time around, I came to the realization that it was really blaring, annoying, and drowning out the dialouge.

Re: Drunk
Hmmm...I loved the movie when I saw it, but I have seen it only once. Now I'll be biased the second time around, I'm sure...

Re: Drunk
Oh I still liked the movie, I liked it a lot, it's just the music kinda gets in the way if you don't ignore it right off the bat.

I loved the theme song. That ladie's voice is slightly off-key and even a little nasal, but for some reason, it's really comforting to me. I downloaded it. It just seems like such an honest song. Which, I feel, mirrors the movie.

Re: Drunk
Well, in the case of Pirates, it wanted to be the lead actor, in a most irritating and hammy fashion.

Re: Drunk
irritating doesn't begin to describe it. it's a selfaware trainwreck playing to spectators.

Re: Drunk
lotr's score could have been a masterpiece, too. instead, it was a walking cliche.

Re: Drunk
After learning up on Punch Drunk Love, I like the movie even more, and have come to realize how perfectly fitting the score was. I agree that the movie was very well scored, though at times I still wish the music volume were lower. If I said 'annoying' earlier it was because I thought it was drowing out the dialouge.

Re: Drunk
I think it was your rip, then, good sir.

I'm a little confused as to whom, exactly, to blame. I know I saw Hans Zimmer name in the end credits as "Music By," but maybe I missed something in the first batch when I wasn't paying attention, because IMDB posts a slew of other names credited with the music (Including Alan Silvestri, who scored "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"). Was this another case of last-minute composer switching that I wasn't aware of? Either way, the score was a total ripoff of Gladiator, no matter who did it.

25th Hour actually had a Gladiator-esque score as well, but I actually liked what they did with it. It was very dramatic, but pleasant to hear, unlike this PotC stuff.

Did it? I don't remember from back when I saw it in theaters a while ago... I was in an "English Major" mood at the time and was too busy looking into character development and interaction (Which proved to be lucky, as that was the main push of the movie).
S0n of N00n: Here's what -I- think happened...bibble on July 10th, 2003 11:11 pm (UTC)
it was definately a zimmer score. the action music anyway. maybe they couldnt afford zimmer so they got sylvestri to come in and fill the rest of the music in (it was over two hours of almost continuous score). he's, after all, a much cheaper, and equally shitty composer. i thought their combined talents proved to be a masterpiece of shit! quite possibly the worst, most obnoxious score in a mainstream movie EVER! go them!
