    I think the convention of the 'iconic theme' at the start of the movie is really outdated anyway. I like it when there are just strong character themes and then an overriding theme when the characters come together. I mean look at The Hobbit, it had some great music but each individual theme is tied to different things, eg Shire Theme, Misty Mountain theme etc. I think that is a much more immersive way of engaging you with the characters and story. The music is there to complement and enhance what you're meant to be feeling, not to signpost the genre

    Yeah, Im pretty sure that by the end of DOFP there will be no more X3 issues.
    I think the whole flick was under a pretty tight schedule from what I remember. All the Magneto themes were pretty brilliant, no complaints there at all. Some other pasrts of the score kinda bled into itself, sounding a bit redundant and bland. Really wanted a stronger X theme. I dig alot of it though, not bashing Jackman at all. The score actually grew on me alot since I first saw the film.

    Phoenix and Magnetos FC theme are my favorite of the franchise.

    I think it would be amazing if they put a modern twist on this theme song in an action scene:

    Well I think Ottman was alluding to that theme with the X2 Suite

    FOX better use 3D Cameras for DOFP. I think thats the only way for 3D to look good.

    I couldn't stand the 3D Hobbit. Some action and the scenery looked amazing, but all the character movement looked jerky and weird. Bilbo looked like he was on cocaine.

    I saw The Hobbit in 48fps and 3D and didn't like either of those formats.

    The 48fps looked like a TV production in the scenes where there were real sets (Bilbo's home) and only looked okay where there was CGI/greenscreen (like Rivendell).

    And the 3D was too subtle, just like it is in so many films now. Even in Prometheus and Life of Pi, it's subtle 3D and half the time it looks just the same if you lift up the 3D glasses.

    Why don't they use the immersive 3D like they did with Avatar? It's like the 3D they use now goes backwards from the screen, rather than forwards into the audience. I want things to come out of the screen at me! That's what i'm paying for! I remember seeing Avatar and there was a little kid next to me who was swatting at the air when those glowing blue floating creatures were in the jungle at night, as though they were right in front of us. You don't get that any more with 3D. It's a big con and cop-out.

    I don't like 3D at all. I've never watched anything 3D and thought "wow, that was amazing in 3D".

    2 reasons:
    1) It's more expensive to make a "proper" 3D movie that's shot in 3D. Sending it to some workshop company overseas for post-production is much easier and cheaper. Sadly all these movies look like garbage as a result, too dark and not worth the extra 3$ ticket price.

    2) The "deep" 3D, as used so well in Avatar, gave too many people headaches. So they've pulled it back to a level that gives less people headaches. The theory was that less people having headaches=more people take the 3D plunge but what's actually happening seems to be shallow 3D movies=more people not seeing the point of paying extra for 3D.


    Hobbit was actually the first movie in a while where I didn't mind the 3D. I saw it in IMAX 3D 24fps and the image was so clear that the 3D kind of worked. About 90% of what I've heard/read about the 48fps format has been outstandingly negative though. I hope certain other directors *coughSingercough* don't take a page from Peter Jackson's book on this one, and just stick to 24fps. 48fps is not "an adjustment", or "the future of cinema", it's a step backwards.

    You're not alone on that one <3 Though there are some other "magic" things I'd also like to see from him ;)

    Yeah, Im pretty sure they can negotiate with the post conversion houses and save quite a bit of money.

    While the action in 48fps 3D is pretty damn fluid, I still find it too jarring of a transition as a whole right now. I was judging the tech instead of the Hobbit when I saw it , which did take away from the film. I have no interest in seeing DOFP in 48fps or 3D. I actually hope they shoot on film.

    Couldn't give a toss about how this is shot as long as I can see the film in 2D (like I did with the Hobbit).

    I saw The Hobbit in 2D 24fps and IMAX 3D 48fps. I can see why some wouldn't like the HFR, but during some scenes it was superior.

    The Hobbit might not have been the best film for people to get their first look at HFR because of the dwarf make-up. It's a lot more detailed and clear, which can take some getting used to, however using it on a film like Avatar 2 would provide amazing results. Interested to see what Singer goes for.

    Baring some unforeseen scheduling conflict, It's almost a given John Ottman will score Days of Future Past.

    He's one of Singer's closest collaborators and these guys have been working together since film school. Ottman has scored & edited mostly all of Singer's films. They have a long history together.

    I also expect Tom Sigel to return as DP. He's shot all of Bryan's film's since The Usual Suspects.

    In regards to 3D, Singer did shoot his last film in native 3D, so not only is he familiar with the tech but he's also supportive of the format.

    I hope it's post converted 3D. Movies filmed in 3D look like **** in 2D.

    The only film John Ottman hasn't done with Bryan Singer was first X-men.Him compossing and editing DOFP would not be bad thing at all.Considering he did same for X2 which for many If Best X-Men film.Ottman's work helped make X2 as good as It was.a Good composer helps a film Impact.

    Tom Sigel Is very likely to return as DP.And that's a good thing.

    James Cameron was one Bryan went to to get familar with special effects before the first X-men.He visited the set of Titanic.Reportly they remained on good terms since then.What some people also may have forgotten Is back between 1990 and 1993 when Carolco had rights to X-men Cameron was going to produce It and had worked on a treatment.It fell apart when he and Carolco were more Intresed In getting Spider-Man off the ground.And yet X-Men would have been easier since the legal problems which keep Spider-Man In Limbo for years wouldn't have been an Issue with X-Men.Bryan may very well have discussed 3-d with both Cameron and Peter jackson,who he went to In 2003 when he considered after X2 doing X3 and 4 back to back like lord of the rings,In preparion for DOFP.they would be the 2 to talk to In preparion for 3-d DOFP.

    I also enjoyed X3. But we're probably in the minority on these boards.

    To be fair the reason people were getting headaches from Avatar might've been because it was a James Cameron film first and foremost.

    Bryan Singer looks like he gain a lot of weight.


    Is Lucas Till returning? I hopes he's returning back for the sequel.

    This better be kept. From 2:14 on is pure amazing. I love all of Ottman's work on the first two films, but this Magneto score was pretty damn definitive.

    You're right.

    Did not know that. That's a very rare film that one of Bryan's biffs (the biffs being Ottman and McQuarrie) didn't have a hand in...

    Well, getting Kamen back looks more than impossible.

    I'd love to see Ottman back, but as he did with Superman Returns where he incorporated the John Williams score, I hope that he honors the universally praised score done by Henry Jackman.

    What I liked about Jackman's score is that not only did it perfectly fit the film and the characters but there were DEFINITELY parts of the theme that were clearly referencing earlier X-Men composers, mainly Ottman. The beginning of 'Not That Kind of Bank' definitely has borrowed elements from Magneto's theme in X2.

    That was because of the 48fps
