Nickleback is the most overrated band on this planet you are about to jump off. It's bad enough that we have to hear them almost every time we turn on the radio, but in the movies too?! They aren't horrible and have some catchy tunes, but they would be much easier to swallow if they weren't so over-exposed IMO.

I agree. Now this is real metal:

I thought the sarcasm was pretty clear, myself. No one's that big a fan of Nickelback.

A lot of middle aged dudes are...300 has some guitar riffs in the score if I recall. Personally, I prefer classical scores.

If your going to have a song in this movie it better be from a band that lives in Norway!! How about a band that already has songs about the Norse Gods such as Loki, Oden and Thor? Amon Amarth should be in this movie somewhere even if its the ending. This song fits perfect for a Thor Movie.


This song should be ending score for the movie! I dont care what people say that metal will cheapen the movie. Thats your opinion but IMO it sets itself up for god like warfare.

Amon Amarth - Guardians of Asguard

If Klaus Badelt could re-invent himself a bit and not sound exactly like his last few works I think he could do a nice job.

Maybe they could get John Paul, Page and Plant to do a new version tailor made with the cinematic appeal in mind. A more operatic version perhaps. Plant is all into doing new things these days....maybe doing a new thing on an old song would fit that bill.

Doubt it. Plant wants none of it. Already said he's moved on. But to have one of their old songs that made reference to the god of thunder "The winds of Thor are blowin' cold...." and taken to another level in a Thor movie....then I could see that.

Default Re: Thor Score

If I am not mistaken Patrick Doyle is the composer chosen to score the Thor movie. Don't know how many of you are familiar with his work, this is one example:
VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

While he is not my first pick, I do like his style. Of course things could change, rejected scores are unfortunately a common occurrence in big budget films.

I'd keep the modern stuff to a minimum, it'd be nice if they included some Scandinavian folk music. Garmarna would be perfect:

I wish I can Find a copy of White Snake cover of the Immigrant song but it was only on a live album.
But I can see what you're saying. Zep's Viking covers would be great.

I think the 'Demons & Wizards' cover of the 'Immigrant Song' is somewhat better than the original. The lead singer's voice is both deeper and stronger:

What do you guys think about James Newton Howard or James Horner?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_H...vision_scoring

Both have done epic movie scoring on large-scale and big budget fantasy films.

Problem is they have been overused, the fact that they have a trademark style that's instantly recognizable doesn't help either. Don't get me wrong, I love some of their work but it's time to let other composers have a go . Some game composers, I would argue, outdo most of the film composers you hear about so much. James Hannigan for example:

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


His score for the HP game is considered by many to be better than the one used in the actual film.

Gabriel Yared could also write a phenomenal Thor score:

All the more unfortunate that the unremarkable Doyle has been chosen ...

I think Hans Zimmer would fit pretty good. I'm listening to the 'Modern Warfare 2' soundtrack (which he composed) & certain parts of it sound like it could be used fro 'Thor'.

Re: Thor Score

I'd be happy with Patrick Doyle. Him and Braungh have a good rapport and know how to work with one another. also, I loved Doyle's rendition of the harry potter theme using strings rather than williams' trademark brass. I actually prefer string to brass, so I hope Doyle gets the gig.

I as well would be pleased as punch with Doyle. His score for 'Needful Things' is one of the best I've ever heard. Up there with Poledouris's Conan the Barbarian, IMO. One of the best ever.

Dang, they got Hans Zimmer to score Modern Warfare 2? Video games have come up a bit more than I realized.

Yup. I think he only scored some of it though, not the whole thing. You can definitely tell some of it is Zimmer though.
