OvomorphMember0 XPJun-05-2012 5:03 PMThat's an insult to STAR TREK. The original ST movies had brilliant and ominous themes by both Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner to name but two. But I know what you mean - it was too jovial and inappropriate, as discussed in a prior thread by many fans. If you take as example some of the musical pieces from STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, which deal with the theme of The Creator encountering their 'offspring', the awe-inspiring, epic, dark, music is a far-cry from the 'wallpaper' music of Prometheus. Now that you mention it, the Prometheus theme is more befitting of the later TNG movies and/or TV episodes.


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-05-2012 5:07 PMYes, I was thinking more TNG Insurrection etc Or Voyage


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-05-2012 5:17 PMI hope you guys aren't referring to "Friend From the Past"... Are you?


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-05-2012 5:20 PMNo, not that... The opening... Also thr use of Chopin at the end was exellent


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-05-2012 5:33 PMHaven't seen it yet. If you can find the title you're referring to I'd love to give it a listen. I've got the soundtrack and can't recall anything like what you describe. I'm a composer for TV and film and will keep my ears perked for the opening music that bothers you.

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-05-2012 5:38 PMActually DB, the theme music is used throughout the film at incredibly wrong moments...when you see the movie, you'll notice it.


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-05-2012 7:03 PMIf a soundtrack calls attention to it in this way, if it smacks you out of the scene entirely, it is being misused. I think the music itself was good. The soundtrack was excellent. They just used it very inappropriately in the film.


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-06-2012 1:51 AMAs long as no one can break dance to it ... I'll be happy. Hoping its NIN like in atmosphere, though I will have to wait until tomorrow night to find out. Listened to the samples on iTunes....
