Default Re: Scores To Marvel Films: Which do you like the most?

This was just intense:

And the Punisher theme is just so fitting and awesome. I love its many changes to fit the tone throughout the film.

My favorites of the score are, Setting A Trap, The Punisher, The Massacre, Gods Gonna Sit This One Out, Entering The Fort, Skull (The Punisher Theme Extended ), Castle's Loneliness, Punishment, and You Don't Understand definitely. My favorite is probably Gods Gonna Sit This One Out because it combines Castle's Loneliness, The Punisher Theme, and then creates an awesome sounding original tune. All in all scores like The Punisher are the reason that I mainly listen to scores to movies and video games.

Daredevil also had a great score, the main theme completely fit The Man Without Fear and it was greatly written but the Punisher's is just too good. Though I do think Daredevil easily has the best soundtrack (as in the compilation of songs used throughout the film such as Bring Me To Life, Hang On, Learn The Hard Way, etc)

I agree about Siliotto's score for The Punisher 2004 being great. One of the best scores that year,imo. And that year had alot of good scores and comic book/superhero movie scores. Better than I expected. And very underrated both movie and score.

I disagree about Daredevil's score. I remember being very excited about this score b/c Revell was scoring it. I also enjoyed his score for The Crow. So imagine my disappointment after I saw the movie(also disappointing). The score didn't even stack up to Elfman's Spider-man. The main title didn't go anywhere it just kept building up to nothing, imo. Bullseye had a cheap and simple theme or motif but it was appropriate for the one- dimensional performance from Farrell. After scores for BB and TDK I've grown to appreciate the DD score more. While not great it's decent. Way better than what Zimmer and Howard wrote for the Batman scores, imo.
