Re: The Danny Elfman Appreciation Thread
So you're not a fan of Elfman's popular mainstream scores post Mars Attacks! e.g. Men In Black. Sleepy Hollow, Planet Of The Apes (2001), Spider-Man 1 and 2, Hulk, Big Fish, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Wanted, Hellboy II:The Golden Army, The Wolfman (2010), Alice In Wonderland (2010)? Check thous out if you haven't. Of his recent more mainstream output I'd recommend Frankenweenie (2012), Oz The Great & Powerful, and Epic. If you're interested in scores that aren't typical of Elfman I'd recommend Good Will Hunting, A Simple Plan, Standard Operating Procedure, Milk, The Next Three Days, Restless, Silver Linings Playbook, Promised Land, and The Unknown Known, but that is if you're interested.
Even though I rarely dislike Elfman's scores I know that's not the case for many. When it comes to his style (between fans and non fans) it usually comes down to a taste sort of thing.
