I personally like both, but prefer Newman.
Hmmmm... must be an american thing. :-(
I should start an aussie poll:
Natasha Beddingfield (lady luck )

neither ( )
Google is a friend
I voted for Elfman because he has been my favorite composer for a few years. However, I absolutely LOVE Newman's score for Lemony Snicket's. The funny thing is that I sat through the whole movie thinking that it was Elfman's work.
Oooooh I know this one!
Elfman. But I'd take Prokofiev's score for "Alexander Nevsky" any day as far as movie scores go :mrgreen:
Both are cool but give me John Williams anyday. Elfman is kind of redundant IMO. good moody stuff but it all sounds the same to me.
I like John Williams as well...but listen to Holst's The Planets sometime and tell me you don't hear Williams in there.
Oooo! I spaced Williams.
I agree about Elfman being redundant. However he wrote quite a few good scores before he started basically rewriting the same score over and over. Well, enough to satisfy me, anyway.
And Mozart's Requiem (Duel of the Fates), Stravinsky, Hindemith, Mahler... John Williams does wonderful things with other people's music. OK, I'm being a bit too hard on him, but never seems to write anything that hasn't been heavily influenced by something else...
And I thought Canada was inundated by all things american yet I have no idea what this thread is about :lmao: :lmao: off you go then...
