The New Shadow Movie Poll
Which composer would you pick to do the soundtrack?
Want to add your own opinion? Email me! Don't forget to read the rules though.
Hollywood is full of many great composers and to show my cynicism (as a
purist) the music from some of these modern superhero/action hero films
is often the best part (a lot of these comic book adaptations simply aren't
very good.) I will throw out a few suggestions as I am not set on a certain
person for the job:
- Danny Elfman (whose Batman 
soundtrack is a high point in film scores).
- John Williams (who terrified us in Jaws,
captivated us with Star Wars and ultimately who made us believe
a man could fly with Superman).
- Howard Shore (who did the Lord of the
Rings fantasy films and who proved he could do a serious crime drama
with The Departed).
- Alan Silvestri (who is one of the best;
he wrote the beautiful and playful score to Polar Express).
- James Newton Howard (who scored the modern
retelling of King Kong  and made that film epic).
I think Jerry Goldsmith** could do it once
again, he did tremendous job on the first movie. Danny
Elfman would be awesome too. Whoever will be the composer, I hope
it won't be Hans Zimmer.
**Webimistress' Note: Though
Jerry Goldsmith passed away in July 2004, it would be nice if he could do
the soundtrack again if he were alive today.
