yeah if you don't own one you can't do the score . I'm cautiously optimistic as well. There are very few things like this that have gone well..in fact so few I can count em on one hand. Aliens was a pretty great sequel to Alien but it worked as an action film vs the horror of the first film (Terminator 2 was a great follow up to T1 though I truly am off put by James Cameron at this point in time) and a few tv shows that were spin offs.

Why not Vangelis? If I were him I would want it.

I don't think Harrison is a particularly great one either what he always had in droves in his earlier films was a fantastic charm as Han Solo and Indiana Jones.. he's perfectly cast. But this is his best role imo. I totally geeked out one night and watch my new blue ray making of blade runner on my 5 disc set. He was particularly unhappy during this period of making Blade Runner, many run ins and excessive shots by Ridley really had him frustrated and it translated perfectly to the character he plays on the film.

If he can do it for this movie, why not for a new Blade Runner movie?

I'd rate Vangelis for it too. He interprets themes nicely. SO does reznor but would probably not be my thing for this. Schnauss??? Pass.
I just hope they don't insist on some hip act in the soundtrack ( a la Tron remake)

Where the hell did they get all those images? Wow. Brit-Aussie Guy Pearce is in Promethus and the guy is a great actor.

Ridley's no sci fi work was above avg but Alien & Blade Runner were exceptional. I am sure both movies will be better than 99% of the crap coming out of Hollywood. The set designs for Ridley's movies are always stunning.

Ridley is a perfectionist. A lot of the actors hated it because tons of smoke and endless takes. Hours to set up the lighting for the shots. It was one of Ford's best movies but I doubt to this day he gets it. Rutger Hauer was electric as Roy Batty.

I personally don't like Vangelis sound track that much. I think the CS-80 sounds too digital like a DX7.

Strip out the words and use Gary Numan's Pleasure Principal and you have a good sound track.

The problem with the Blade Runner soundtrack is that it doesn't sound good.

Back in the day, it sounded AMAZING. It hasn't aged well at all.

There are a lot of ambient producers making music that sounds today the way Vangelis' music sounded in the '80s. As a matter of fact, it seems like 75% of indie pop sets forth today with that explicit goal.

A lot of producers could make an effective soundtrack. The best approach would be to have like a dozen different producers make a track each for the soundtrack under the aegis of someone with great taste.

I'm also skeptical about what the writer & scriptwriters will come up with.
Formula writing & production is the name of the game. Not convinced the stooodio will be taking any chances with the fickle taste of the popcorn gallery who buy tickets.

Then there's the Ridley Scott problem.

Pretty much everything (apart from perhaps Thelma & Louise) he's done from the 1990's has been mediocre trite. Yeah I know I know... 99.9999% of members here probably thought Gladidioter was brilliant.....

One can only hope they don't end up doing to Blade Runner what George Lucas did to Star Wars.

George Lucas is a wan*er. He sounds like a total idiot when he is interview.

Ridley post Alien and Blade Runner made some pretty middling films. Still he made Alien and Blade Runner. He assembled an incredible team of people on both films.

Even a semi-remake of both will be a zillion times more interesting than the shite Hollywood projectile vomits daily.

The stills from Promethus do look interesting as hell. I heard Giger is also working on it. Ridley on his worst day and in a coma is still better than probably better anyone else doing sci fi.

No Vangelis, Trent or Zimmer. Keep looking.

Yes, Ridley did make Alien & Blade Runner. Both brilliant.

Maybe this is an opportunity for him to return to form. (and start praying that he doesn't, yet again & again & again, cast Russell Crowe)

As for Ridley being 1000000 times better than the rest, I'll give a vote of support for early Cameron (Terminator & Aliens). Those were decent. Unfortunately his form has also deserted him somewhat imo.

Paul Verhoeven is another honourable mention imo (Total Recall, Robocop, Starship Troopers).

Anyway.... another vote for Vangelis for the soundtrack. Can't imagine giving it to anybody else.

By no means is Harrison Ford a favorite of mine, but by the definition of acting, I think he can be considered great. He has been in many films, playing many different roles. Sure he has had some bad roles, but what established actor hasn't.

Vangelis is The right Composer for this project.

Anyone else imho, will ruin the feel of the movie, especially given the popularity of the very original, (now classic) Vangelis Blade Runner score.

me too - would be pretty tough to pull it off though. The plot of the book is complex, to say the least.

Hey guys, I invented this proprietary opinion aggregator machine (pure analog, don't worry!) and this thread will be the first time I'm testing it in a real life situation!

I must first warn you that its currently only capable of around a 98.5% accuracy, so I hope its results aren't too off base here, but this is what is has come up with so far:

Old mean good, new mean bad.

(Oh, and after a few more minutes of calculation it also added the fact that when it said "bad" it didn't mean it in the 80's sense of bad meaning good, because obviously due to its origin of prominence being the 80s, that would thereby be defining new as bad in the good sense, which, since it isn't the 80s, is bad, but in the bad way, not the good way.)

It should be noted for information's sake that neither I, the inventor of the machine, or the machine itself, have either one ever seen Bladerunner or heard the soundtrack, so there isn't any subjective favoritism included in the calculation.

My friend, you should by now know that a new version of something will never be as good as the original, no matter what it may be.

Especially computers, medicine, and automobiles.

Because when it comes to sci fi - Ridley Scott could be drunk, sedated, in a coma or whatever and he would still be better than 99.9% of Hollywood's ooozing and clueless scum.

Just the set designs for Alien and Blade Runner are worth waiting 30 years to see something like that again.

The stills for Prometheus look incredible and I bet it will be terrifying too. Ridley said it will be very scary.
