Thread: Howard Shore
Personally, I loved how everytime I listen to anything from LOTR, i get the chills all over and I'm swept off my feet into the world of Middle Earth. I'm curious to see what he does in Eclipse
But what else has he done???? I'd like to know.

Wikipedia is awesome . Far better than many give it credit for . Note that he is already being listed as composing for The Hobbit .
So do not despair dear Tinuviel. Weep not; Rend not your heart and your hair, for Edward's fan-girls cannot prevent the Master from fulfilling his Destiny .
seen 2 of the movies mentioned. Only watch sci fi (or fantasy) films. mostley, nearly always.
ps. i no, my spelling is atroshus.
a) some of it resembled LOTR (especially shelob's lair!)
b) it made so many normally awkward moments meaningful!
c) it saved the movie!
EDIT: And yes, Howard Shore rocks. Not literally, but he does.
As to Last Airbender...
FAVORITE TV SHOW EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Except i heard the movie is absolutely etrocious. the local movie critic gave it half a star...
We can continue general film talk in the Movie Chat thread in the Other Fantasies sub-forum, which is where I moved all the other posts to.
I totally agree. But even Howard couldn't save the sorry excuse for a movie commonly known as Eclipse. The music seemed okay, but I didn't last through to the end.
All three of the LOTR soundtracks would be in my top 10 soundtracks of all time- they are that good.
I have heard criticisms of Mr. Shore's body of music for the LOTR by master musicians, but the criticism is for the flavour of the music and not the splendid richness and complexity. For, even I have to admit, it sounds very Celtic much of it, totally Irish to the core and the whole book was written by our professor, first to be a canvass for his languages, and secondly because he felt there was essentially nothing much that was truly absolutely English in flavour and feeling and that is what he wanted to depict. I love it deeply regardless and could listen to is all for hours and hours at a time, if only I had such time.
Yes Lee Lee. I still tear up at times listening to my favorite playlist from all three films. HS's ability to move people through music is incredible. I especially love his Elven inspired lyrical tracks. Enya I can do without....
