Isham Surprises Again!!

People, especially the younger pop-song lovers, need to understand that when a film is made, the director hires a film composer to compose the orchestral music to not only accompany the film, but to make the scenes even better. Imagine Apollo 13 without the incredible music by James Horner as Tom Hanks and the astronauts blast into space during the launch....Film SCORES, not pop songs, are what can make a movie great. Mark Isham has been known for years as a more subdued, quieter composer who hasn't gotten much attention, but lately he's been composing like crazy!! Eight Below is a fantastic score, right up there with his score for Racing Stripes. FANTASTIC use of a full orchestra! Really interesting and good music!!!
