    Does this guy ever sleep? Same with Desplat and Zimmer.

  2. Macejko says:

    Ha, this movie is so doomed 😀 They literally went with the worst possible choice on the entire planet. Come on, Fox, haven’t you learn your lesson with godawful Wolverine (the movie AND the score)? But hey, at least they keep this marauder of film music away from good projects. Maybe even Proyas will come to his senses and fire Beltrami’s ass one day.

    • Brent says:

      I could not agree with you more! He is without a doubt my least favorite composer.

    • Mr. Big says:

      You are wrong.

      • MrZimmerFan says:

        As always, Macjeko and his hate on Beltrami

        • fitzmorris says:

          Why are you still wasting your time with this idiot?

    • BB says:

      You are ridiculous man! Means that no one can criticize your beloved Hans Zimmer and cronies of the Remote Control. But you weave webs and more critical webs to Marco Beltrami and Brian Tyler. So you can right? Who are you clown? Who do you think you are? What gives you the right to criticize the Marco like that?

      If it was his beloved Ramin Djawadi, I doubt you would criticize! I Doubt! Does the following: will there in the house of Beltrami, and say you hate it! Declare war against him, go there! Let’s see if he cares about his mediocre opinion!

      I want to see your reaction when the Beltrami is an Oscar nominee for The Homesman.

      • Macejko says:

        1) You can criticise all you want. I just demonstrated to you in the past that your so called “criticism” isn’t based on facts. I can’t make you like something, but I certainly can prove your reasons (as you stated them) to be wrong.
        2) Of course, if it was my beloved Ramin Djawadi composing it, I wouldn’t criticise, because, well, he is my beloved Ramin Djawadi. Any other obvious statements, Captain?
        3) If Beltrami gets nominated for an Oscar, I wouldn’t be surprised even a little bit. The Academy has proven many times that it is inept, backwards thinking organization. The Oscars lost their real meaning a long time ago. They’re all about ass-kissing and ego-boosting at this point. So maybe they’ll rub little Marco’s back as a gesture of compassion. Is it supposed to impress me?

        • BB says:


          And the Oscar is a failed institution, but if your lover Ramin or Hans Zimmer (for Interstellar) or any other Remote Control was indicated, you would squealing with joy right?

          You are very unfair. For you, anyone who is not in the Remote Control, are walking in darkness. You’re an assh*le defending tooth and nail, an institution that is killing the music of the film. Do you work in RC right? No, you are only a donkey who come here to criticize for criticizing. You’re gaining a slice of the money? F*ck you

          If it was Ramin, Geoff Zannelli, Steve Jablonsky you could say that they would “save the movie from complete failure.” You are a very unfair guy. You have to understand there are many people who do not like this style of pasteurized Remote Control. For, after all, everything they do is “more of the same.”

          You have to understand one simple thing: There are people who love the Beltrami scores. There are people who worshiped the Wolverine.E score you think coming here criticize will change anything? Surprise for you: No!

          You think you know something, but do not know shit. You criticize the work of Beltrami, but you’ve heard all of his scores? You criticize Alexandre Desplat, but heard the scores for the films he made in France? To hell not! You criticize for criticizing.

          • BB says:

            “1) You can criticise all you want. I just Demonstrated to you in the past que your so called “criticism” is not based on facts. I can not make you like something, but I can prove Certainly your Reasons (Stated as you Them) to be wrong.”

            Ah, is not based on facts? So what are the facts? Oh yeah, you “can not say their sources …” You is not no one, man! Here in FMR, you just know do two things criticize Marco Beltrami, and idolize ALL working in Remote Control.

            Go there in the house of Beltrami, and declares war on it! Go ahead! I want to see it give any importance to you

          • Macejko says:

            Oh my dear BB 🙂 You still don’t get it, do you? There is no fairness. I’ve never composed a note of music, but I CAN CRITICISE ALL I WANT, whenever I want, wherever I want, and whatever I want. I don’t care one tiny bit about Beltrami’s fanboys hurt feelings.
            And surprise! You can do that too! It’s called “free speech”, a concept you so hilariously don’t understand. So go ahead, go to some Ramin’s or Hans’ threads and rip’em to shreds, if you so desire and want a revenge. But the big difference will be, that you’ll not see me there crying like a baby, because the best way to deal with loud, obnoxious cretins is simple: ignorance on the website, and laughter in private. Guess what I’m doing right now 😉
            And lastly – oh man, I wish I worked in RCP. That would be dreamy…

    • BB says:

      Then, by free will, I can criticize Hans Zimmer how much I want, where I want and when I want, and you can not claim it: D

      • Macejko says:

        Now he gets it! I can, however, point out how stupid your reasons are, if you’ll by any chance manage to repeat them. But nevertheless, I’m glad you finally grasped the concept.

        • BB says:

          And I can tell you how much you are stupid to attack the Beltrami. Do not like your declarations, do not know and you do not like you. I think its ridiculous statements about Zimmer, as if his compositions were the epitome of scores, as if EVERYTHING he says to do, it was pure gold. I think you underestimate ridiculous as professional songwriters made Desplat, Giacchino, Beltrami (yes, Beltrami), Tyler … Man, if doubt, you should talk to Bernard Herrmann evil and Jerry Goldsmith.

          For me, you have bowel movements by fingers. If my statements are stupid, its has no validity.

          • BB says:

            “And lastly – oh man, I wish I worked in RCP. That would be dreamy…”

            Of course! There is just the place for mediocre professionals made you, or rather to mediocre PEOPLE just like you

  3. Felix says:

    YES!!!! Marco did it again. He is such a very good composer and I love his score and this wood be great, a Hero scored a Heroes Movie 🙂

  4. Tiago Rangel says:

    Interesting choice. I was expecting Elfman, Silvestri or someone from Remote Control, but Beltrami was good too. However, it would be really nice if Trank had been a little more audacious, and hired someone like Christopher Young or Alexandre Desplat.

  5. Roger says:

    back to destroy another project

  6. H.R. says:

    Beltrami sucked in last years but his Homesman score was amazing.

  7. Orzobimbo says:

    The only good choice in this disastrous production…

  8. Tiago Rangel says:

    For the annoying and fanatical trolls that are poping up here on FMR, I just have one thing to say:

    Beltrami >>>>>> any of Zimmer’s minions, including Djawadi.

    • Yahzee says:

      …sounds legit. Except I also enjoy Ramin Djawadi.

    • Ds says:

      But do you even know who these “Zimmer’s minions” are?

      Djawadi, Jablonsky, Balfe, they don’t work on Zimmer scores now, they have their own carreer. If you still consider them as “minions”, then John Powell and Harry Gregson-Williams are also “minions”, right?

      The current “minions” (as you call them) are artists like Steve Mazzaro or Andrew Kawczynski: they are at the very start of their musical career so please don’t compare them to Beltrami, that’s just unfair.

  9. Unathi says:

    A score fo FF marvel Fox… what a challenge fo Beltrami

  10. Ds says:

    Three additional composers are credited at the end of the movie… It saddens me that some people are still believing Zimmer is the only one to work with additional composers. Those people being often lovers of Beltrami, I thought it was nice to share this information here 🙂
