Ha...I just associate movie composers with
[In reply to]
my favorite soundtrack of theirs...not necessarily their best, and I usually haven't heard all of them (with a few exceptions). The first time I heard of Randy Newman was when I got the Main Titles to Monsters, Inc....well, couldn't really find it, but here's a nice little video of the 2001 Oscar nominees for best OST; if you can get over the first one (), then you can hear Monsters, Inc is the last one played (about 5:53 into the vid). Hmmm....that was a really good year for OST's.
When I think of composers being known for having lots of sides, I mostly think of Hans Zimmer....Thelma and Louise, Lion King, Gladiator, Rain Man (which actually has an excellent soundtrack)....I'd never guess that the same person wrote all of those!
There are so many brilliant moments in it. The musical ("Put that thing back where it came from or so help me, so help me, so help me... It's a work in progress"). The abominable Snowman ("Welcome to the Himalaya!") and I love the scene with the winds of change, with the four arms... And when Mike sprays himself in the eye...
Not only was I amazed by a lot of the little details that were animated in the film I was just touched by the overall story. Just a lovely film.
Finding Nemo would come in second and Toy Story third. All the rest just lie at the bottom somewhere (I didn't care enough for them either due to lengths that were far too long or just meh story lines).
I liked this one. When it came out on tape we watched it over and over. I liked all the others (although i did not see cars and i have very much want to see Wall-E) but i still like this one the best. And i am not sure why. Maybe it is my childhood, playing cowboy origins. I love the humor, no question about that. The family has been watching Ratatouile over and over lately but twice was enough for me.
I feel i will like Wall-E just from the commercials. I got the same feeling from the Short Circuit commercials and i really got a kick out of that -over and over.
Hello, I suppose you folks have heard of Ghan-Buri-Ghan before, but you've never met him, and that's because I'm new here. Anyway, I'm trying to get into the swing of things here, and I think that WALL-E is Pixar's best film so far (It's the only film I've ever seen twice in the theater)
As SirDennisC noted in response to your first post (on the Off Topic forum), we just discussed "The Muster of Rohan" in the Reading Room three weeks ago, as part of that board's fourth discussion of The Lord of the Rings -- now we've reached "The Pyre of Denethor". Stop by and join the conversation.
As to how your name remained unclaimed, these forums are actually pretty new, having gone online only in the first quarter of 2007, and no one in that brief time was so inclined. I think there may have been a "Ghan-buri-Ghan" on the old TORN forums (which went online in 1999) who hadn't posted for years. Once the name was taken, no one else could claim it, so anyone who joined since then who might have picked that name opted for something else.
