    Wasn’t his name Thomas Wanker? Or did he change it, due to bad jokes?

  2. David says:

    43 minutes of score, and the film is 130 minutes long. Don’t get why most of the Kloser/Wander discs have few music. The Day After Tomorrow had 90 minutes of music, and the CD had 35.

    2012 had two hours of music, and the CD had 40 minutes, with most of the music for the finale being dropped. Anonymous had a better release, but it was out of chronological order.

    It’s a shame he had to change his birth name, because it is actually pronounced ‘Vanker’. In the UK and parts of Europe, it would be very difficult for him to maneuver without his name being the butt-end of insults.

    Anyway, never really liked his and Kloser’s scores, they just tend to be flat and without any thematic drive.

    I wonder if Emmerich will hire them for his ‘ID42’ – Probably.
