Re: YouTube Goodness

My favorite of Shelley Duvall's projects for the Disney Channel was her first one: Mother Goose Rock n' Rhyme . Crazy-imaginative visuals, genuinely fun songs .. and a star-studded cast! 8) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UMeebCP0fY The whole movie is also on YouTube, in varying levels of quality (...

Re: Harold And The Purple Crayon Live Action Movie!

I've never understood the trend of adapting a wafer-thin children's picture book into a 90-minute multimillion-dollar animated or live action feature. :| There are six other 'Harold' books by Crockett Johnson, which could be combined to pad-out a feature .. but it still seems (to me) to be a concept...

Re: Bad movies with great soundtracks?

Much as I love both Jackie Chan and the works of Jules Verne, Disney's 2004 adaptation of Around the World in 80 Days was .. not something I enjoyed, as a movie. :| But I do very much enjoy Trevor Jones' score for the film .. listening to which, I often imagine a much better adaptation that could've...

Re: Batman: The Animated Series

I mean .. by that logic .. Bruce Timm & co shouldn't have even bothered with Batman: The Animated Series in the 1990s. After all, theirs was hardly the first 'take' on Batman attempted on television .. heck; it wasn't even close to being the first *animated* version! :wink:

Re: Disney's Frozen

You're not alone, danieltruchsess .. I've no interest in Froz3n , either. (we probably still are a 'minority' on that opinion, though) :lol: ----------------------------- I must confess that I wasn't especially fond of either Frozen 2 or Wreck-It Ralph 2 .. and I'm somewhat infamous for liking every...

Re: Bad movies with great soundtracks?

An anime soundtrack which perhaps fits this category is Shin Kaitei Gunkan ( "New Undersea Battleship" ) -- a DTV animated remake of the 1963 live-action japanese sci-fi film Kaitei Gunkan , which was released in western markets as Atragon .. hence, this 1990s remake was titled Super Atragon in its ...

Re: Bad movies with great soundtracks?

A more recent (well -- released within this century , anyway :lol: ) animated nautical adventure score that I'm fond of is Dreamworks' Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas , composed by Harry Gregson Williams .. it's full of 'action-packed' cues which harken back to the Ray Harryhausen epics by which th...

Re: Bad movies with great soundtracks?

Another Sarde score I admire is the somewhat infamous Pirates .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjuVg-rnuHw .. and also on the subject of 'ill-received' pirate movies, there's John Debney's rollicking score for Cutthroat Island .. which (IMO) is packed with fantastic action-adventure motifs; enough...

Re: Bad movies with great soundtracks?

To add another animated film soundtrack to the discussion, I submit Fire And Ice : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i3VT7eYu-4 Again -- not to say F&I is a 'bad' movie -- but, well, it is a Ralph Bakshi joint. :wink: William Kraft's brassy score for F&I is an excellent adventure soundtrack .. up the...

Re: Bad movies with great soundtracks?

For John Barry, I'd add his score for Howard the Duck (even though I personally enjoy HtD , TBH , and RtT .. for nostalgic reasons, if nothing else). The theme Barry composed for the 'Star Wars' pastiche Star Crash is likewise way better than that film deserved .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGj...

Re: Bad movies with great soundtracks?

Another sincere 'Indiana Jones' riff soundtrack is Sky Pirates , composed by Brian May. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5HbV0kM7gk The full score for Sky Pirates is on YouTube, as a playlist. At one point, the entire 1986 film was also available to view on YouTube .. it seems to have since been rem...

Re: Bad movies with great soundtracks?

The trouble with calling any movie 'bad' is that -- odds are -- there is someone somewhere who enjoys it .. it may even be their favorite film! Regardless, I have several soundtracks in my listening rotation which I consider to be rather more enjoyable as a listening experience on their own, apart f...
